The Strangers are disturbed that John is uncontrolled, because [[spoiler:he possesses their psychokinetic abilities, called "tuning."]] Mr. Hand volunteers to inject himself with the memories John should have received, so he can better understand their quarry. Despite objection from his collaborator Mr. Wall, Doctor Schreber injects him.

Detective Bumstead finally tracks down John, but believes that he's innocent of the murders. They also find Doctor Schreber, and force him to reveal the true nature of the dark city: [[spoiler:the Strangers are a dying race of psychokinetic aliens who infest human corpses and want to learn about the human soul and the patterns of Nature versus Nurture by abducting a group of humans, taking them to a habitat in space, and forcing Dr. Schreber to mix and match their memories every night]]. Schreber doesn't know anything outside the city, because [[spoiler:the Strangers forced him to destroy his own memories of the world they came from]]. The three of them arrive at a Shell Beach poster, and John and Frank start breaking the wall down. Schreber tries to stop them, but when they break through, [[spoiler:they see the void of space, and Frank falls out into it, pulling Mr. Wall with him]]. The Strangers, having abducted Emma for a hostage, find them and force them to surrender, taking John and Schreber to their ElaborateUndergroundBase.

The Strangers order Schreber to replace John's memories [[spoiler:with the collective memories of their kind, so that they can share his soul.]] Instead of doing as ordered, Schreber injects him with [[spoiler:a mixture of memories that teaches him how to use his tuning powers]]. John breaks free and fights Mr. Book in an incredible battle of will, which destroys the Strangers' lair and Schreber's laboratory.

Emerging victorious, John starts to rebuild the city, [[spoiler:tilting the habitat toward the star it orbits, bathing Mr. Hand in the sunlight that the Strangers cannot tolerate, and unleashes water to flood the force field and create the Shell Beach he remembers]]. He finds Emma again, but [[spoiler:her memories have already been altered; she's now "Anna."]] John is willing to make a new start.
