The houses are being invaded by unruly vines and weeds cracking and breaking the concrete foundations. Moths, lizards, ants and termites invade and destroy. Lye spray and an old broom are used to attempt to control the weed and pest attacks. José Arcadio forces four boys to enter an orgy life style and after being whipped they get revenge by catching, beating and drowning him. Then they discover his sacks of gold hidden in the floorboard. After being paid for sex, the large dark but pretty Nigromanta eats and drinks in bed. The apparition descends the staircase. A lovely girl is playing Victrola records. José is examining important parchments. Yellow flowers are bursting from the cracks and creases. Chickens are being prepared for chicken head soup.
