*** [[spoiler: That's an explanation, but it sounds way too much like grasping at straws. What was wrong with something like 'Five must die'? If in a possession movie you use the word 'souls', you usually have to mean 'souls' and explain yourself if you don't. But of course, seeing some scenes like [[TooDumbToLive Eric reading the book]].

** Perhaps not, unless by "normal" you mean dead, since the witch has been dead since before Ash and friends arrived in the cabin.

* If Ash succeeded in repelling the demon that possessed him simply through a stimulus that reminded him of the people (or things) he loved, why does the lullaby only serve to distract the witch rather than purge her of the demon. Which makes me wonder...if Ash didn't interrupt the singing by attacking the witch, would she have been turned back to normal?

** Evil Dead 2 retconned Cheryl, Scotty, and Shelly out of existence, and made it so Ash actually didn't rent a cabin (the cheapo broke into the Professor's place!) so there is probably no one who knows he was there. Whenever the authorities end up investigating the scene.... well, it would be quite a mess. The cabin was partially smashed by those tress, and the portal most likely sucked a lot of evidence of what happened there.
** It didn't retcon them out of existence - Sam Raimi has repeatedly said that if you cut off the beginning of ''Evil Dead 2'' and put ''Evil Dead 1'' there then did the same with ''Army of Darkness'', it's the whole story as he envisioned it. So the incident still clearly occurred. However your second point is very likely the exact reason why. The portal very likely swallowed up anything that anyone would recognize as human remains before it closed, if much of anything remains of the cabin after all that's happened there.
** If any evidence ''did'' remain behind, the authorities would probably blame ''the professor'' for the deaths. His confession to killing his wife is on tape, after all, and the content of the recording is enough to make him sound like a lunatic; indeed, the police finding and playing back his recordings could explain how come [[spoiler: that deadite shows up at S-Mart after the evil's allegedly been banished]].

** Evil Dead 2 retconned Cheryl, Scotty, Ash was locked up in a mental institution. Because Freddy vs Jason vs Ash takes place on Earth-818793 (see Army of Darkness Comics above), Ash was arrested for supposedly killing innocent people in S-Mart (as seen in the comic: Army of Darkness: Shop 'Till You Drop Dead). He was then sent to Arkham Asylum (the H.P. Lovecraft one, not the DC Comics version) in Army of Darkness vs. Re-Animator. Later in Army of Darkness: The Long Road Home and Shelly out Army of existence, Darkness: Home Sweet Hell , it is revealed that Ash has [[spoiler:reset the world to the way it was before the "Death of Ash" story, resurrected his dead co-workers, and made it so Ash actually didn't rent a cabin (the cheapo broke into the Professor's place!) so there is probably no one who knows world forget that he was there. Whenever seen as a psychopath in the authorities end up investigating the scene.... well, it would be quite a mess.

**Not that it resolves the issue, but if the mini Ash reflections (including the eventual Bad Ash) ''were'' missing a hand, it would be the opposite hand from Ash himself. Since they're, y'know, [[MirrorSelf reflections]].

** With [[spoiler: Mia]], a jeep fell on top of her arm. This could have easily broken the bone, meaning that the only things holding her in place was her skin and muscle; which could also have been damaged by the jeep falling on her arm. With [[spoiler: Natalie]], the electric knife actually shorts out once she reaches the bone, meaning she may have found another way to break it in the time it took the guys to find her.
