Using the “A Simple Swap” spell from a book of the devil (uncovered in Widow Mary house, a woman who is said to be immortal after concluding an agreement with the Devil), Solomon summons the Devil and makes a pact to reverse his misfortunes. He wants “power, prosperity and inheritance “and is willing to pay the price of only one soul every few years.
He writes the name of the sacrifice on the stone wall in the secret passage under his house and the devil owns them. Sara points out this sees the murders of also more people, as the devil says out on a killing revelry.
To keep her from telling everyone, Solomon frames Sarah for the deaths of multiple children in the village (he had initially tried to frame Pastor Miller). This is an easy task when the villagers already believe that Sarah’s soul is damned, after she is caught kissing and falling in love with Hannah Miller, the pastor daughter.
The villagers hang Sarah, but not before she promises to reveal the truth on the Goodes. “The truth it will be your curse “, he says to Solomon.” I will follow you … for eternity.
