Derry: The Fifth Interlude and Epilogue, Bill Denbrough Beats the Devil (II) Summary

Mike is still in the hospital. Richie has returned to California and has already forgotten most of the events of the past week. Ben and Beverly are returning to Nebraska together. Bill is still in Derry, hoping his wife, who is catatonic will have a miraculous recovery. When the hospital releases Audra before Mike, Mike suggests that Bill take her to his house and stick around a while. Bill agrees.

Mike is concerned that he will forget this time. Mike already cannot remember some of the details of the past week. The ink with which he wrote his friends names and numbers is fading. It is truly over this time. None of them will ever remember any of it, for better or for worse. Bill comes to visit, and Mike talks to him about this. Bill agrees.

Bill decides to take Audra for a ride on Silver. Bill feels he found Silver for a reason and thinks he should give it a try before the magic is gone. Bill dresses like a child, dresses Audra the same way, and then puts her on the bike. They begin outside Mike's house and race into downtown like Bill did the day he saved Eddie's life. At the end of the ride, Audra suddenly comes out of her catatonic state with no memory of anything that happened in Derry.

Derry: The Fifth Interlude and Epilogue, Bill Denbrough Beats the Devil (II) Analysis

It is over, and everyone is returning to their lives. Ben and Beverly go off together, fulfilling some of the romantic hopes of the readers. Richie returns to his life and does not remember much of what happened. Even Mike is losing his memory of the events even though he was the one to recall everything before. The ink is fading in his notebook. It seems It is truly over.

Bill's wife, however, is still in a catatonic state. Bill takes her on a ride on Silver. For some strange reason, perhaps the magic that brought the Losers Club together in the first place, this works. Audra returns to sanity. Audra remembers nothing of her time in Derry, for which Bill is grateful. Now, Bill's life can go on as it was before.
