Eines Tages taucht deren Tochter Catherine auf und verdreht sowohl Gerard als auch Chatelin den Kopf. Voller Hinterlist planen Mutter und Tochter den Tod der beiden Männer. Chatelin kann zwar die Ermordung von Gerard nicht verhindern, aber sich selbst retten. Catherine wird von Gerards Hund zerfleischt, die Mutter verkommt im Drogenrausch.
