In 1865, James has brought Mary to his house. After she is given a love letter from James, she moves closer to him, revealing a worm on the bench.

Rusty Lake Paradise Edit
During the First Plague, Gerard Eilander wants a shrimp as a toll to open the front gates to the Island. Using a machete, the player cuts apart a large fruit and picks up a worm. The worm is given to David to use as bait on his fishing rod, and he catches a shrimp. During the Fourth Plague Gerard is found hiding in a boarded-up hole, with a worm by his feet. The worm is used as part of a deadfall trap to catch a sand piper. Lifting up a rock with a twig the worm is placed underneath, coaxing the sand piper to try and catch the worm. The rock falls and kills the bird, and its heart is ripped out by David.
During the Tenth Plague, the player helps Gerard shoot an apple off of David's head. The apple is split open, with the worm inside. After the worm is fed to a chicken, it lays an egg which hatches into a chick that is then in turn fed to an owl.
