Now everyone is thoroughly freaked out and there are no longer cheery tea times and chats.
They all sit in the drawing room as if waiting for something to happen.
When Vera goes to make tea, everyone watches her to make sure that she hasn’t slipped anything in the tea.
The lights go out and they have to take out candles in order to see.
Eventually Vera decides that she is going to her room for bed, even though it’s just past six p.m.
When she goes up, she smells something strange in her room—it smells like the ocean.
Then she feels something wet and cold on her throat and starts screaming wildly.
Everyone rushes upstairs to check on her and they offer her brandy. She looks up at realizes that it wasn’t a cold hand at her throat after all—it was just a long ribbon of seaweed.
Vera refuses to drink the brandy and Lombard goes to get her a brand new bottle that’s unopened.
Then they realize that Justice Wargrave isn’t with them… how strange.
They go downstairs to look for him and find his dead body. He’s sitting in a chair with scarlet robes made from the missing bathrobe curtains, and he has a wig on his head. He’s been shot clear through the forehead. Well, guess the revolver showed up!
