Added DiffLines:

* MonsterFromBeyondTheVeil: Thomas Zane unwittingly ushers a HumanoidAbomination into being when he attempts to resurrect his lover, Barbara Jagger, by RewritingReality. The catch is, this ability comes from being near the "[[EldritchLocation magic lake]]" she drowned in, because it hosts a RealityWarper EldritchAbomination. Since he does it via DeusExMachina, she CameBackWrong, as a soulless physical avatar of the Dark Presence. Whoops.

* EvilCounterpart: To Wake.



* EvilTwin: He's exactly what Alan would be if he was evil.

to:

* EvilTwin: He's exactly what Alan would be if he was evil. Though he's a HumanoidAbomination variation on an EnemyWithout, wearing the protagonist's shape to manipulate events in service of a larger EldritchAbomination, his roots in Alan's psyche mean he's hopeful of attempting a KillAndReplace.

* ThePowerOfRock: [[spoiler:Literally. "The Poet and The Muse" explains how to defeat the Dark Presence, while "Children of the Elder God" details how to fight the Presence and the Taken. And considering the nature of Cauldron Lake, those songs may be the entire reason why the Taken are vulnerable to light in the first place.]]
** Invoked again in ''American Nightmare'' with their new single, Balance Slays The Demon. [[spoiler:As you can probably guess, its lyrics detail how to defeat Mr. Scratch. And a reversed message saying "It will happen again, in another town. A town, called Ordinary."]]
