Adrift and burdened by conscience, Bill strikes out on his own to find the last ritual object–and to close the cycle, at any cost.
This is the story of the guilty and the paper boat.
The Losers find their way back to each other as the events of the day settle into place. In the calm before the storm, there is light and love and a brief moment to hold happiness in their hands–but one totem is still missing. And even as our heroes remember themselves in Derry, the world outside hasn’t forgotten them.
As Eddie tries to retrace the footsteps of a lifetime spent running, he is forced to reckon with an identity built on fear and the bravery demanded of him for the trials to come–a bravery that someone else may have seen in him all along.
This is the story of the hypochondriac and the cast.
Don’t you know how it ends, Bill? You started the story. Now you’ve got to finish it.
As the end looms just ahead of them, Bill remembers how it all began–and begins to grasp the role he has to play in the days ahead. But as the past comes, fragmented, into focus, it begins to reassert itself in other ways, too. Once they remember–truly remember–who they are to each other, will any of them be able to walk away from it all? Or will the challenge in front of them feel even more impossible once the Losers know they have something to lose?
Well…at least you know you didn’t come back here for nothing.
As the Losers begin to remember the shape of their shared past, they’re faced with a choice: to confront a thing they desperately want to forget, or to run from a home they’ve only just started to rediscover. But then again, maybe they don’t have as much of a choice as they think. One thing’s for sure–if they stay in Derry, the past is bound to catch up. And right now, It knows them better than they know themselves.
