Things have finally come to a head. The Dolridge family begins to foam with poison and loathing, the day of the sacrifice has arrived and Father Dolridge himself is starting to reconsider his place as patriarch. Father Dolridge won't have to wait much longer, however, for if he can get through this one more night and make sure nothing goes wrong, then he can pick up the pieces from there. Of course, for that to happen, Father Dolridge would have had to be the one in control all along. The houseguest finally reveals himself in the last chapter of The Dolridge Sacrament.
