Appearing in "Inner Child"Edit
Synopsis for "Inner Child"Edit
A few years have passed and Rose feels Dog has become more like his father, cruel and heartless. John Howlett has begun to prep young James for his future as master of the estate, though his own father disapproves of the gentle means by which he instructs the boy. Rose, during the course of her duties walks in on Elizabeth Howlett and sees her as she is dressing and notices three scars across her torso. Rose is pushed backed out of the room by Mrs. Hopkins and told never to say a word about what she saw. Rose runs outside to the gardens and is accosted by Dog, who makes unwanted advances upon her. James witnesses the situation and runs and tells his father. Rose slaps Dog and gets away. Dog's father, Thomas, is reprimanded by John Howlett who tells him to take care of his son. Later, after being punished, Dog attacks James for telling on him and ends up killing James' puppy in front of him. This leads to the Logans being fired and forced off the Howlett property. Thomas Logan and Dog, bearing shotguns, storm the estate and force Rose to show them how to sneak in to the Master Bedroom. Thomas, Dog & Rose enter the room and Thomas grabs Elizabeth, who is in the room, and tells her that he is taking her with him. Elizabeth, tellingly, doesn't seem to mind the idea, but insists that he release Rose. John enters the room and is attacked and then killed by Thomas. Dog threatens to kill James but is rescued by Rose. James rushes Thomas for killing his father and is then knocked back by Thomas' shotgun butt. Thomas quickly realizes though that he is bleeding profusely from stab wounds in his abdomen. He falls to the ground dead. James is then revealed to have sprouted claws from his hands and that they are covered in Thomas' blood.
