Dark Night of the Soul: Wendy tries to find Jack and talk to him (armed with a Louisville Slugger). She discovers her husband’s literary toils—reams and reams of paper with the words ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY. Jack arrives. And as you can expect at this point, it’s not going to go well. Wendy climbs the stairs, attempting to get away from him. Jack becomes more and more threatening and she eventually bats his crazy brains with the bat. He takes a tumble down the stairs and is out for the count, a whiff of death moment.
