Plot

Spencer and the player headed to the hallowed hollow of Stonemoor, known as Midnight Hollow, on Chief Flanagan's instruction. After a while in the town square, they decided to head to the Understare Hotel to inquire about the serial killer. When they arrived, they were approached by panicked butler Sawyer Westbrook, who insisted he'd found a body in room 217. There, the pair found the body of hotel visitor James Torrents, dead on his hotel bed. Alexandre ascertained that James had been killed by extreme fright before the pair questioned Sawyer on how he found the body, as well as suspecting the victim's wife Winona Torrents and college student Joan Goodwin. As Spencer and the player re-capped the investigation in the hallway, they spotted a figure running into the hedge maze, wielding an axe.

They quickly confronted the figure who was revealed to be hotel manager Stan Redrum, who confessed that he was having to cut down the weeds after he fired his caretaker. They also found reason to suspect priest Thomas Riddle. They also discovered that Winona was scared of her husband due to his paranoia, saying he believed the hotel was haunted by demons. Mid-investigation, Spencer was hit by a falling light, prompting the player to be accompanied by Valentina while he recovered. Eventually, Valentina and the player were able to identify Winona as James's killer.

Winona told them that she had done her husband a favor by killing him before she explained that her husband had wanted to die. When Valentina asked her why, Winona then told them that she had found him writing and mumbling incoherently about how he had seen the Devil and that he needed to die of a heart attack at the hands of a ghost. Knowing how much she disliked her husband after he had changed due to his studies into the supernaturalism, and about some beast called the "Hellhound" and their satanic cult, she decided to do him a favor. She then put the murder into plan, even using her pharmaceutical knowledge to make him paranoid and eventually die of a heart attack after seeing a recording of a ghost that she had stolen from Stan Redrum to blame him. Judge South, disgusted by the vicious murder to silence her husband, sentenced Winona to life in prison. Soon after, Valentina concluded that the Hellhound could be the serial killer they were looking for.

After the trial, Joan then confessed that she overheard Winona's motive during the arrest and that one of her friends was a member of the cult that Winona had mentioned. She then directed the team to investigate the victim's room, where she had lost her phone. The player, with Spencer who had recovered from his injury, then tracked down Joan's phone and discovered that Joan's cultist friend was in fact gothic girl Ingrid Jameson, who had joined the Hellhound's cult because the goth said to Joan that she supported what the Hellhound does for their ultimate motive as she decided to stay in The Understare Hotel before leaving to join the other cult members.

The player and Spencer then asked Stan Redrum about where Ingrid was staying, only to be told that Ingrid had booked out and left through the hedge maze. They then hurried into the hedge maze and eventually found Ingrid's possessions before finding the gothic cultist, which Spencer demanded her to tell them about the cult. Ingrid then dismissed them and told them that they didn't have any definite proof of a cult circulating the Hellhound serial killer before wishing them luck on uncovering the serial killer. Meanwhile, April Moore returned from her vacation and gifted the player a spooky mask before Chief Flanagan told the detectives that they would need to find out more on the serial killer's cult and search for definite proof.
