A possession is often triggered by disturbance.

The Williams were an American family living in Japan and bought the Saeki house. Jennifer Williams was caught by the curse and found suffocated on the bed by her husband Matthew. Matthew was then possessed by Takeo, dragging Jennifer's body by the hair to the attic, and kicking his sister Susan off his house, confusing and scaring her. Matthew then climbed to the attic, followed by Kayako's wraith, and was later found dead besides his wife by Detective Nakagawa and his team.When the curse reached a Chicago apartment building, it affected Sally, Trish and Bill's behaviour. He assumed a jealous conduct, suspecting she could having an affair with another man. Sally was a neighbour and best friends with Lacey, Bill's oldest daughter. Lacey once visited her and met Sally regurgitating and vomiting, threateningly staring her her. Sally was suffocated to death by Toshio afterwards. At some point, Bill and Trish had a argument that scared Bill's youngest son Jake. As Bill became grouchy, Trish, influenced by something evil coming from next door, murdered Bill by spilling hot oil and hitting the frying pan on his head. Trish normally had her breakfast while Bill collapsed to the floor, bleeding and agonizing. She later hid Bill's body in their bedroom, which was later found by Jake himself. As Jake ran to Lacey, he only found her dead as well, as she drowned (or was drowned) in the bath. A possessed Trish then showed up to a horrfied Jake, and was taken by Toshio.
Notes and triviaEdit
- Kyoko's possession reflects both Kayako and Manami's interrupted motherhood (or their maternal nature), even though Manami's ghost never manifests itself.
- An alternative ending for The Grudge 2 features Jake finding Trish's hanged body. The Grudge 3 confirms that the deaths were concluded to be caused by Trish in a murder-suicide act, similarly to the Williamses deaths (were Matthew was possessed by Takeo) and the Saeki murders case itself. So, it suggests that, differently from Yoshimi in Ju-on, Trish was possessed by Takeo instead, being the only female character to have been so.
- The scene with Matthew's possession was deleted from the theatrical cut of The Grudge, but is featured in the DVD's special features.
