Enid follows Wednesday’s lead, which turns out to be a birthday surprise party for Wednesday. As they sing her happy birthday, she observes that the writing on the old fireplace is identical to the writings that were burned on the school’s lawn. She sees Goody alerting her of Crackstone’s imminent visit in a vision. She asks Wednesday to seek a position in the vision and informs her that, as a raven psychic, she will have a solitary journey that will leave her unable to trust others.
