At the home of Dr Henry Jekyll, in 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson presents a manuscript. The story lacks only an ending. Jekyll is dying because he can no longer control the changes and his last secret will die with him as he destroys a vital piece of paper in the fire. Back in the present, Tom is believed dead, with Hyde having taken over after Tom succumbed to terror due to his claustrophobia. Dipping into Tom's memories, Hyde taps into genetic memory from Henry Jekyll, and learns that Jekyll never used a potion, (something that was widely believed, and evidently something that Klein & Utterson were aiming to reproduce). He also discovers that Jekyll's maid looked identical to his wife, shortly before Klein & Utterson abduct his wife and children.
