Les souvenirs resurgissent et le Club se souvient, qu'il y'a vingt-sept ans, la divinité Maturin (qui fait contraste à Grippe-Sou), manipulait les Ratés (bien qu'eux pensaient agir de leurs plein gré) en se servant de leur union pour détruire « Ça ». Lorsqu'ils reviennent à Derry, ils découvrent la véritable histoire de « Ça » et comptent bien l'achever, sous l’œil vaillant de Maturin.
