The Everlasting Enemy
The 9th episode of The Midnight Club starts with Dr. Stanton divulging who’s going home. It’s Sandra. Sandra no longer has terminal lymphoma, and it appears that she’s treated for it.
While Kevin is sleeping, Ilonka speaks to Kevin about the sleepwalking that he has been doing. It seems he’s been doing this for a while and has got up from the bedroom downstairs several times. She pleaded with him to talk about it, and the room and walls aren’t the same. Sometimes, he feels less alone like he’s looking at him.
While Ilonka has been having a relationship with an elderly woman, Kevin has been haunted by the old man. So, who is the duo? They’re planning to visit the library to discover.
As the entire group is joined all together Kevin inquires about visions that they’ve had. It turns out that it’s only Ilonka and Kevin seeing this, the rest of the group isn’t.
Cheri believes that this is folie-a-two which is essentially an illusion shared by two individuals. Natsuki has a different theory regarding”the “eater of years” but this theory doesn’t appear to hold the same weight.
Ilonka shifts the topic and discusses the way the ritual went success, and that someone is headed home. Ilonka thinks she’s her…until Sandra speaks up and uncovers the truth. The girl is also heading home since her parents will be picking her up. The trip is scheduled for tomorrow. This absolutely beats Ilonka.
What about the whispering voice that was heard in the hall? It is revealed that it was Sandra throughout. She was trying to give Spencer an opportunity to believe. After dropping this bombshell she left.
Ilonka runs out, bursting through the front doors and then snatching past Katherine who’s there to visit Kevin. Ilonka isn’t having a good time and Ilonka utterly destroys her, noting that her presence can be a traumatic experience for Kevin. When Kevin arrives and hears her ranting on, Kevin is shocked and questions her about what she’s up to.
Ilonka sets off to locate Shasta She explains to her that the ritual wasn’t working for her. When she begins to doubt what’s going on and the legitimacy of the whole thing, Ilonka learns the truth. It is revealed that Shasta may actually be Julia Jayne all grown up and living on the fringes of Brightcliffe!
The ritual works, and she’s determined to give the healing power back to the community which is why the cult exists and the knowledge of The Paragon Book. So, she thinks to go on a trip together and head to the basement together. Julia says she will heal herself since she has the right tools to accomplish this.
While Mark is away, Spence heads off with Mark to Mark’s home where the whole gang is making preparations for an upcoming gathering. This is the first time he’s met like-minded individuals and informs Spence that they must be seen.
Ilonka goes back to Brightcliffe and enters the library, where she apologizes for her conduct to the entire group. Sandra’s last night is upon us and this time, the story’s duties are handed over to Spencer. The story revolves around destiny and he refers to it as “The Eternal Enemy.” Rel is the main character and, despite his stunning looks and charm, he has few acquaintances. In college, he evidently has a crush on Christopher Perry and tries to make contact with Christopher Perry.
Today, Christopher is actually really fascinated by robotics and electronics. He’s a sci-fi fan and Rel recommends they meet and watch Terminator the movie he had recorded in the evening before. However, the movie isn’t recorded, and instead, you get American Football.
In the end, they go to the bar, where they find themselves watching the exact same game that they watched before. It appears that Rel has managed to capture the future! As a result, they decide to keep recording each night to observe what transpires. They begin betting on games, earning money over time as Christopher and Rel become closer, and eventually kiss.
If one tape shows the death of a schoolgirl murdered, Rel decides to save her life the next day. Although she doesn’t want to record… the tape is recorded and this time Christopher is Christopher himself who appears in the news reports as having been killed, dismembered, and dismembered by a mysterious weapon.
Rel runs to try to save his beloved but comes in contact with the strange man with a hooded face who appears to be carrying a futuristic weapon. Rel is able to keep him at bay, but there’s an issue. It is revealed that Rel is actually an ‘infrastructure’ from the future A malfunctioning robot that was able to escape back into time before being decommissioned.
This hooded man is actually Christopher from the future. And you know what? And so is Christopher in the future. Christopher! In the end, Rel is destined to die. The only thing left is the VCR.
This VCR tape confirms the things Christopher is planning to accomplish in the near future. In a world of robots, Rel reminds him that there’s beauty in suffering and in imperfections. At that point, the future is altered and Christopher decides not to find flaws in people after all and decides that Rel is just as perfect as the way he is.
At that moment, Spence finishes his beautiful story. It juxtaposes his personal story with that of the story of a man named Christopher who was sick, but he doesn’t resent his illness.
The group then split and went to the bed. When they get there, Ilonka lets in Julia Jayne and her friends, who descend to the basement to begin their routine. It’s not all her own though, as she is joined by four women her. Ilonka is urged to sip a strange drink that she’s told is “tea” but it’s very obviously not.
Dr. Stanton arrives and is trying to stop Ilonka. Just as she takes an ounce and the other women start shaking and falling to the floor. The women have been poisoned. Julia stumbles across the floor and grasps Ilonka. She hits her head against the wall before stepping to the side.
