Solution #1 → [Subject Line: STUDIO] Where is Celestine's spare studio key located?

Statue of Saint Expedite

Solution #2 → [Subject Line: DECODED] What is Celestine's laptop password?

The sticky note says connect the dots... The only dots to appear so far are in the storybook.

  • We have ourselves a book cipher.

The letters are acronyms relating to the story titles. The numbers refer to the words in the italicized portions of the stories.

  • MP 10 = Mère Petitpas and Her Violet Absinthe → Purple
  • GG 2 = Graveyard Guardians / second word → Gray
  • GVQ 16 = Grave of the Voodoo Queen → Crimson
  • PBL 14 = The Pirage Brothers Lafitte and the Baratarians → Turquoise

The note says to connect purple dots to gray dots and crimson dots to turquoise dots.

  • On page 7, connecting crimson to turquoise = MBI
  • On page 9, connecting purple to gray = ZO

The laptop password is:

  • ZOMBI

Artist Statement

Observation #1

Celestine started off following the instructions, then crossed it out and trailed off on a story of running away from home when she was younger. The story is not even finished and ends mid-sentence.

Observation #2

Celestine references the story of the rougarou from the storybook we received in Episode 1. She also mentions looking at life "under a different lens".

  • This hints at using the suncatcher with one of her art pieces.

Celestine's Art

Observation #1

These appear to be three self-portraits of Celestine.

Observation #2

One has 2 suncatchers in the background with the same design as the one Sylvia sent us.

  • "1/9" is written in the top-left corner on the back.

Observation #3

Another one is of a woman behind Celestine with what appears to be a heated comb, perhaps to straighten her hair.

  • "1/12" is written in the top-right corner on the back.

Observation #4

The final one shows Celestine pouring hot sauce into a gumbo.

  • There appears to be some sort of design in the stew. Either that, or it's just crawfish...
  • "2/6" is written in the top-right corner on the back.
  • Using the suncatcher over the gumbo, peering through the red panels, an image of a werewolf can be made out.

Float Sketches

Observation #1

Celestine sketched some ideas for floats.

Observation #2

At the bottom of the front side, she wrote some notes but then crossed them out. Why cross them out?

  • In this note, she mentions "latest subject".

Observation #1

The first line is scrambled. Once unscrambled, it reads:

Observation #2

The only items we've received with dates are Celestine's art pieces: 1/9, 1/12, and 2/6.

Observation #3

This is a book cipher. The first number being the passage and the second number being the word in that passage.

Observation #4

So the emporium is at Bourbon and King. The location is revealed in the third riddle in the hidden NOLA blog.

Cemetery Guide

Observation #1

On page 3, the last paragraph explains about wall vaults and how they can act as an oven.

Chemical Analysis

Observation #1

Sylvia believes based on the description and components of the mysterious liquid found in Celestine, that it may be Datura.

  • Datura is a type of nightshade flower, which can be very deadly when ingested.

Coroner Assistant's Notes

Observation #1

Postmortem body temp was 106.1 degrees Fahrenheit

  • This was due to her being in a wall vault, which acts as an oven.

Observation #2

Handbag was opened but it appears nothing was taken

Observation #3

Gunshot wound to left temple, .2 inches in diameter

  • Most likely the cause of death

Observation #4

Liquid was partially ingested right before death

  • Poison, which didn't do the intended job quickly enough and warranted the gunshot

Observation #5

No sexual assault occurred

Float Toys

Observation #1

The cardboard slats can be attached to the plastic parts and rolled around.

Letter from Sylvia

Observation #1

Observation #2

Observation #1

Observation #2

The second-to-the-bottom entry is Celestine.

  • The items can be matched up with the autopsy notes.
  • The St. Expedite card is referenced.

Saint Expedite Card

Observation #1

Zee wrote a quip on the back of this card.

  • "Tomorrow is never promised. Make sure you're walking in the right direction."

Textbook Page

Observation #1

According to the autopsy notes, fixed rigor mortis had set in and body temp was 106.1 degrees Fahrenheit (roughly 7-9 degrees above normal).

  • Rigor develops between 2-6 hours of death.
  • Body temp rises at approximately 1.5 degrees per hour.
  • According to this text, the normal living body temp is 98.6.

Observation #2

So, we take the external temp (106.1) minus the normal living temp (98.6). We then divide that number by 1.5 and subtract that from the time the body was found. Adding a half hour to either end should give us our window of death time.

  • 106.1 - 98.6 = 7.5
  • 7.5 / 1.5 = 5
  • 11:40 +/- 30 minutes = 11:10 - 12:10

Observation #3

However, Celestine was at Zee's shop at 11:25, therefore the actual window of death time is:

  • 11:25 - 12:10
