|Eric Doyle's apartment|
|Location:||San Jose, CA|
Doyle records another tape to Claire, describing how his relationship with Lauren is improving. He then throws the tape into a stack of tapes in the closet, and summons a beat-up Kyle Dilman out of the closet. He commands Dilman to leave and never come back. When Dilman runs away, Doyle uses his ability to shut the door, and smiles.
In chapter 3 of The Puppet Master, Eric Doyle and Lauren Shapiro return to Doyle's apartment after their third date. Lauren has realized that something was bothering Jason, and asks him about it. When Jason finally reveals that his name isn't Jason, but Eric Doyle, Lauren recoils in horror. Doyle then shows Lauren his ability, which truly terrifies Lauren. She flees the apartment.
