Joan Throckmorton has another fit in which she allegedly converses with the spirit Catch, the day after her sister Mary scratches Agnes Samuel. She claims, telling her sisters of the conversation, that Catch told her "You were sick in deed the last time I was here, but now you shal be much worse." Catch also begs her not to let Smack know he was there, but that he was cursing her with this sickness because he did not dare go after Smack directly. However, if she were to go visit an uncle in Sommersom, she would escape this illness. Smack would come to her again that night after dinner. ](78-80)

Strangers come to the Throckmorton home to see Joan Throckmorton brought out of her fit by Agnes Samuel. Agnes says once again that she is "a Witch & consented to the death of the Lady Crumwell" and Joan is well again until just before supper. Smack allegedly comes to her again after the meal, and she tells him about Catch's visit in which he promised to cause her a week of severe fits in revenge for Smack breaking his leg. Smack then tells her "on muday next in y morning they must begin, & end that day sennight in y morning. You will haue a whole week belike (said she) yea said he, it must be so, & you shal be sore in your body y next weeke after." This comes to pass as he and Catch foretold.(80)

Elizabeth Throckmorton has numerous grievously tormenting fits for a week, culminating in a fit at dinner on the 10th of March in which she hums and seems to be trying to speak to something despite her mouth being shut up. Agnes Samuel is bid to hold her while she is in the fit, and Elizabeth quiets. Grace then goes into a fit, and Agnes holds her for a while, upon which Elizabeth becomes angry with her and says "now I can see the yong Witch which I could neuer do before since she came to the house in my fit." She then claims that her "sister Ioanes diuel told me euen now as I sate at supper, that I must scratch the yong Witch" and scratches Agnes viciously, despite that Agnes still holds Grace in her arms. Elizabeth then falls to weeping, accuses her of not praying in her heart, and demands she confess to her wickedness. (80-83)
