Dr. Stringer catches Kristen in his office and reveals that she is actually one of the many characters from Alice Hudson. Kristen was removed eight years ago at the age of eleven and held for two months in the basement of the same farmhouse Kristen was burned to the ground. To survive the trauma, she was diagnosed with multiple personality disorders, creating each one of the girls from the ward with a unique personality. Alice was overwhelmed by the personalities of the other girls and lost her personal identity. Dr. Stringer attempted experimental techniques to bring Alice’s individual character back. The result was the manifestation of Ghost Alice that took over the personality of each one at a time. The treatments worked until the appearance of ‘Kristen’ as a ploy by Alice’s mind to shield the other personalities so she wouldn’t have to confront her trauma.
When she is getting ready to leave the hospital, Alice takes a suitcase and all her belongings. When she opens the medicine cabinet over her sink, Kristen lunges out at her.
