Hypnotized to believe she's his wife.
A troupe in England performs the history of a gem which features in legends of Shambhalla and Atlantis. The troupe's hypnotist, Dune, has made them famous, especially his wife Susan, who is the star.
After the star's disappearance before the show, her standby, Miriam, takes Susan's place. Dune always hypnotizes the standbys to believe they are the actors they replace: the post-hypnotic suggestion ends when the final curtain lands, and they remember their identity. Before the curtain lands, Dune whisks Miriam to a castle.
Meanwhile, Miriam's friend, Colin, who just kissed her for the first time, seeks against all odds to rescue her, though she's told he's a crazed criminal.

Fun Facts on Encore

Bennu: You might have heard of the carbon-rich asteroid named Bennu which NASA is taking samples from using the spacecraft named OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft to learn about the origins of life on Earth. The asteroid is named after the Egyptian flamingo deity, the original version of the Greek Phoenix bird of rebirth into eternal life.
Osiris is the Egyptian also associated with rituals in initiation rituals into magickal organizations and occult secret societies, still continuing today. Osiris, who arose to bring renewed life in Egypt, is the original of the Greek Persephone, who cyclically returns to initiate spring fertility in Greece. The Osiris mysteries were performed at re-initiation rituals in Egypt each spring in the temples, celebrating his rebirth.
The Agents of the Nevermind books dramatize the tendency of intelligence agencies to interconnect with secret societies with death/rebirth initiation rituals to instill new, loyal secret identities for the members. The Bennu Society, which takes an interest in extreme longevity through vampiric practices, like many such cults, networks with the Agency of the Nevermind in the castle owned by an alchemist who makes New Age elixirs out of a meteoric rock, Moldavite, associated in many cultures with magical longevity.
