While Lisa is playing with Billy, a figure approaches her, causing her to scream. Jamie finds her dead with her tongue cut out. After Jamie is released from custody by Detective Jim Lipton ( Donnie Wahlberg ) due to lack of evidence, he spots inside Billy's box a mysterious message about "Mary Shaw", a ventriloquist from his hometown, Raven's Fair.
At Raven's Fair, Jamie visits his estranged, wealthy and wheelchair-bound father, Edward ( Bob Gunton ), and his much-younger wife, Ella ( Amber Valletta ), for information regarding Mary Shaw. Dismissing them as superstitions, Jamie arranges for Lisa's funeral with the help of a local mortician, Henry Walker ( Michael Fairman ). Jamie meets Henry's senile wife, Marion, who tells him of the danger of Mary and her puppet, Billy. After burying Billy, Jamie is confronted by Detective Lipton, the latter still doubting Jamie, and forces him to dig up Billy. Henry tells Jamie about Shaw. Shaw ( Judith Roberts ) was a famous ventriloquist who was publicly humiliated when a boy, Michael, pointed to her moving mouth. Michael disappeared some weeks later, and his family blamed it on Shaw, whose last wish was to have her body turned into a dummy and buried with her 101 dolls. Henry, then the young son of the local mortician, saw Shaw (having been executed by Michael's family) rise up, but Henry was spared thanks to his having kept his mouth shut. This is because Shaw only takes her revenge by killing those who scream. Jamie finds out that Michael, the first victim, was his great uncle; the Ashen family were the ones who killed Shaw by cutting out her tongue, and she has been seeking revenge against their entire bloodline by killing them the same way. Henry is killed by Shaw. Detective Lipton discovers that all of Shaw's dolls have been dug up. He informs Jamie, who receives a call from "Henry," asking him to go to Shaw's theatre. There, the duo discovers 100 of the dolls lined up with Michael's body, which has been turned into a marionette.
