Anna grows up with fake medium Mrs Golding, who forces her into prostitution. Annas first client, MP Dysart, makes her a gift of a jewelled brooch. She seems transfixed when it catches the light, and summons incredible strength to skewer Mrs Golding with a poker. John Pritchard, a doctor intrigued by the new technique of psychoanalysis, takes Anna into his care. When Pritchards maid, Dolly, places a jewelled necklace around Annas neck she is once again transfixed. She slashes Dollys throat with a broken mirror, impaling a shard in her neck.Anna returns to Berner Street, and is taken in by a Lesbian whore Long Liz. Anna is once again induced to kill, stabbing Liz in the eye with a clutch of hatpins. During a visit to a genuine medium, Madame Bullard, Anna relives her childhood trauma and unwittingly reveals that the violent spirit of Jack the Ripper lives on. Pritchard is on the verge of identifying Annas psychotic trigger when, once more possessed, she turns on him with a sword.
