Claire is in her childhood home, plagued by mysterious carnival music and the sound of barking
Start: You remember that old dog? Skinny old thing Mr. Cuthart kept tied up in the front lawn all day? Daddy always said he was gonna report him.
End: You remember how all that happened in here? It’s funny how almost everything else is gone to me, and that sad old dog just came into my head.
