Four years later, the Warrens welcome Mary Ellen, who will be in charge of babysitting the couple's daughter, Judy, while they investigate a case overnight. At school, Judy sees the spirit of a priest that begins following her. At home, Mary Ellen's friend Daniela arrives uninvited to the Warrens' home, curious about speaking to the dead after the death of her father. She finds keys in the Warren's home office and sneaks into the artifact room. She starts touching artifacts, trying to use one to contact her father. She accidentally leaves Annabelle's glass case unlocked, and the terror begins shortly afterward as the spirit of Bee Mullins is set free. That night, Annabelle releases other spirits, including the Ferryman, the Bride, a cursed samurai armor, a haunted Feeley Meeley board game, and the Black Shuck. After Bob, Mary Ellen's crush, arrives to see her, he is attacked by the Black Shuck and hides in the Warrens' backyard. Mary Ellen is attacked by the Ferryman while Judy is confronted by Annabelle. Daniela becomes trapped inside the artifact room and is tormented by a monkey toy and an old television that can predict the near future.
