Crazy Old Bitches

Thursday, December 26, 2013 (continued)

There are big, white feathers on the ground in front of the gate of Alice’s house. Jack breaks a ghost ward and Jamie notes that the defensive wards have been broken, some delicately and some with brute force. As they enter the house, they hear Rebecca arguing with herself and Alice. They find them in the back room. Rebecca is manhandling Gabriel with one hand and holding a painting in the other.

John tries to hit he with the stun gun but gets the angel instead. Jack grabs Rebecca and kisses her, using magic to help her fight Celeste. Once John moves Gabriel to a couch, he grabs the painting from her and holds it by the fire, demanding that Alice tell him what it is but she’s a pain in the ass, as usual, even with Jake pointing a gun at her head. John notes that a woman appears in the painting and moves towards him whenever he looks away. Rebecca is finally able to take control and says that the painting is a door and an ancestor is trapped in it who can help her.

Jamie opens the door and Jeanelle Grey steps out, furious with Celeste. She takes Jamie to assist her and they take Rebecca to Alice’s ritual room, where they remove Celeste from her and put her into a soul jar provided by Jack (which destroys her personality). Jeanelle explains that Alice and Celeste both conspired to trap her. Alice didn’t approve of her friendship with Elliott and Celeste was her protege and heir apparent. John kenns and Alice, Jeanelle, and Rebecca are all witches and fey-touched (Jeanelle more so than the rest). After some discussion, it is agreed that putting Alice in the painting is the best way to deal with her. Sands is sent for gives her a potion to knock her out.

They search the house for things to confiscate. John tears up the pentagram in the ritual room, Jamie gathers up her notes from torturing Alexandros and her lapfop, and George gathers the iron weapons and torture implements. Jack takes the soul jar to put in the Autumn Court safe. John also visits Elliott’s room and fathers his journals, sketchbooks, and the keys to his car. John takes Jeanelle, Rebecca, and Jamie in Elliott’s car and the rest go in Mike’s van, meeting back at the motel. Jake deposits Rebecca in Jack’s room and Jamie offers to put up Jeanelle.

A traditional feast is waiting for them in the diner.
