    Nan retrieves the decorative totem from its slot in the mailbox of room 117.
    It seems like lost items have a habit of finding their way here.

    Henry is wearing the cross necklace.
    As for the totem, no one appears to recognize it.

    Turning it over, Nan finds something scratched into the base.
    Nan uses the magnifying glass.

    Anderson tells Nan that he and Kim are heading back to the third floor safe room. They only came out because Nan had been gone for a while and they wanted to make sure she was all right.

    If she wants to come back she's welcome to, but he's going to stay with Kim to make sure she gets back all right. If Nan wants to keep exploring, that's her business.
    Henry offers to stay with Nan.

    Check from Fun Family Arcade
    Strange Totem

    Lead Pipe
    Key to Anasazi Lounge

    Henry gives Kim and Anderson most of the supplies he gathered from the boiler room, and they head back to the safe room.

    Nan and Henry head to Room 117.
    Nan asks Henry if he knows where the Anasazi Lounge is, and he says it might be on the second floor, since he hasn't seen any entrances like that on the first and third.
    Henry asks Nan what it is she's looking for in Room 117.

    Nan says she needs to find Pablo.
    Even some trace of him.

    No sign of Pablo. But Nan's seen this before.
    A tall, flat canvas streaked red.

    The light switch doesn't work. The lights are broken.
    Not shattered.
    Melted?

    While Henry checks the bathroom, Nan pulls the large canvas out a little, checking behind it. But there's nothing but a blank wall and the wood-braced back of the canvas.

    Henry says the bathroom is empty.

    The tacky, red substance on the canvas comes off on Nan's hand.

    It's paint.

    Nan shines the flashlight into the hole - from a safe distance.

    It's a short tunnel, perhaps six feet deep, and narrows a bit near the end. It's unobstructed.
    There appears to be a room on the far side. Nan can't make out much from here, save what could be wooden furniture. A bench, perhaps.

    Nan crouches down and crawls through the narrow tunnel.
    Henry follows close behind, keeping one hand on Nan's ankle to maintain physical contact.

    Nan has entered the CHAPEL.

    Nan peeks through the tunnel behind her. Henry is still following, waiting for Nan to go through. Nan relays what she sees, which includes a podium, single pew, cross, and stained glass window.
    Though there is clearly something wrong with the window.
    Henry confirms, and suggests it's almost to be expected by now.

    Nan enters the Chapel to examine the book on the podium.

    Listen to me, you little b****

    Obviously you didn't take the hint last time
    So let me spell it out for you

    You are ruining things here

    The hotel can abide a guest or two, but if you attack it, as you have been doing, it will defend itself with violence
    It will fight back
    And it will win

    And anyone can be caught in the crossfire

    You can't fight this
    You can't help anyone

    If you insist on bringing light to the darkness, realize you won't always like what you find

    Some things are better left in the dark, Nan
    Some things should never be brought to light

    If you continue to work against the hotel, it will retaliate in kind
    And you will put us all in the line of fire

    If I have to kill you myself to stop this war, I will
    Don't think I will hesitate
    For even one second

    Nan says she has not intentionally attacked the hotel in any way she was aware of. But she has fought, and she will continue to fight for her survival.

    If this place is truly freedom, she says, she should have the freedom not to go quietly into the darkness.


    Santiago growls, then roars. He spins around, throwing Nan at the pulpit.

    Nan goes for her lead pipe, but he overpowers her. Grabs her wrist.

    Santiago bares his teeth.
    Scowls.

    Disobedient child
    Bad little girl
    If you won't do as your told then you'll have to be punished

    Santiago bites Nan's arm.
    Nan tries to headbutt Santiago, but he's too close for it to be very effective.
    Nan reacts quickly, slamming her knee into Santiago's groin.

    He barely reacts.
