9:35 P.M.

"Muleskinner Blues" by Dolly Parton can be heard playing from the ballroom.

You tune into the video of the #1 monitor at 8:50 in the upstairs hall and see the following:

Brother Doofus is standing in the elevator, apparently too stunned to move. Brother Foooz ducks into Veronica's office, but hangs in the doorway to keep an eye on the hall. Brother Sputum emerges from Jack Marston's office.

Mike Wellman has collapsed to the ground and is curled into the fetal position; Alicia (the Sexy Vampire) is kneeling beside him. The Fairie Queen is screaming at Chip, who is stunned and stammering. Governor Asher rushes down to the first floor just as a sexy female paramedic arrives at the top of the stairs and goes over to Wellman.

A smoking gun is lying on the floor.

You tune monitor #2 to Veronica's office at 8:05 P.M. The top of a ladder can be seen through the north window. Richard Ashcroft (The Big Bad Wolf) can be seen going through the trust fund file on the desk, then he hears something and presses against the wall by the bathroom door, pulling a hypodermic needle from his pocket.

You tune monitor #3 to see what is currently going on in the greenhouse. Helen Asher (the Bride of Frankenstein) can be seen lying motionless on the floor with policemen gathered around her.

You glance at the monitor controls again:

MONITOR #1: Ballroom, front hall, main hall, upstairs hall, gym, game room, library
MONITOR #2: Dining room, kitchen, wine cellar, Mike's office, Vernonica's office
MONITOR #3: Pool, driveway, stables, hedge maze, greenhouse, patio

The cop is still pounding on the locked east door. Suddenly, another cop bursts through the north door, aiming his gun at you. He pulls out a notebook and consults it, then says, "Brother Puris? Sgt. Duffy has asked me to escort you to the library. Will you please come with me?"
