When Rowan came back to The Mercado Hotel, he started back up his Barrier Compromising Master Machine which also re-energized the Ghost Portal Mirrors. From there the device opened up the barrier between the living and the dead which released a large mass of specters. The Ley Lines going through Manhattan all opened; releasing even more spirits to pester the living.
One of the ghosts observed a large entity briefly reach through a portal into another dimension then lost two limbs when it suddenly closed. It manifested on the reflection on the glass of a store front across the street from the Kenneth P. Higgins Institute then spoke to the entity. It found the situation strange because it could sense the entity but not where it was. It realized the entity seemed to exist simultaneously in more than one dimension then stated that was cool. It was curious to see what was going to happen when the entity tried to pull itself together.
