Elliot Goldman, the town blacksmith, was found to be the primary suspect in the murders of Prudence due to his alleged history with darker paths in his practice as well as the motive of grief over his late wife. He was confronted by the group, and Crassilla lead the charge – perhaps too enthusiastically.
This brought her now to the central focus of suspicion, and she revealed herself as one of the group committing the atrocities. She fled and was not recaptured, though her fate is sealed should she ever return to Prudence.
Meanwhile, due to his dark past of practices and studies with Matthew, Lance was brought before the council and officially banished from the township. The group left Prudence having solved the mystery of the ritual murders, but only somewhat, and without guarantee that it wouldn’t continue.
