    Summary

    "Mommy," Eddie rasped, shivering all over. "I’m scared."

    "That's why you have to take your pills." His mother’s smile wobbled on its axis, churning his stomach. "Do you understand? I lied, but it was to keep you safe. To keep everyone safe."

    Safe from you.

    Her fingers curled under Eddie's chin, tilting his face up to meet hers. "You want to be a good boy, don't you?"

    The thought of hurting anyone, especially his friends, was unbearable. His tears slid over her thumb as he nodded, fervently.

    Summary

    Richie gets a call from an unknown number with a Derry, Maine area code. Suddenly, he’s throwing up under blinding, burning, trembling spotlights, but not because of a phone call from Mike Hanlon, and not because he’s sick with thoughts of evil clowns, but because he’s drowning in the instant knowledge that he’s definitely, one hundred percent certain, already done this before.

    Summary

    "We promised to confide in each other, and cherish each other, and sustain each other, and all that jazz.”

    Stan stares at her, blinks twice.

    "And right now, that means going back to your horror-show hometown, and facing your trauma, and potentially killing a demon. Together."

    Summary

    “That’s the thing, Richie,” Stan implores, “you don’t have to go back. You n-n-n—come on—nuh-ever le-eh-left.”

    “The fuck’s that supposed to mean,” Richie all but explodes. “Of course I left. I’m in New York. That house isn’t even fucking standing anymore.”

    But it is,” Stan says. “It’s standing. You’re still there. You’re all still there.”
