Claire fights them off but it is revealed to be some members of the sisterhood preparing them for their initiation. Claire and Gretchen allow themselves to be bagged and tagged and thrown in the back of a car boot. Here they again try to talk about what happened and Claire says she is so close to having a normal life she doesn’t know if she wants to change that right now.

Along with two other members of the alumni, Claire and Gretchen are taken to a slaughterhouse where they are forced to play games for clues. When the four of them split up Claire saves Gretchen from a narrow escape and comes to the conclusion that someone is trying to hurt them. When they move onto another room Gretchen accepts that it was unfair of her to put Claire on the spot like that and apologises, Claire says she has nothing to be sorry for when Gretchen is attacked and choked by an invisible assailant.

Claire fights off an invisible foe but is then impaled against the wall, she managed to slash at her attacker, cutting her and making her show herself. Both Claire and Gretchen as well as the two other girls see it is the leader of the fraternity and no one knows what to do. Claire is removed from the wall and heals in front of the new faces.
