 Shades' Workshop
The workshop consists of a number of large cauldrons containing either a blue or red liquid. Ladders are placed over the pots for the Shades to stand on and mix from above. Baskets of red flowers can be seen to the right.
 Great Witch's Room

The room is heavily draped with curtains, with some rips appearing in them. A red liquid is stained all over the room, with many ornaments being knocked over.

Chapter 5: A Taste of Despair
Hoping to meet with the Great Witch, Professor Layton and Maya Fey make their way to her mansion, to find many of the Shades in a state of panic after she had gone missing without warning. They make their way into the room to find it in a mess, discovering that a fight could be heard between the Great Witch and her visitor. They gather the Shades in the room and discover that the visitor, Zacharias Barnham, had disguised himself as a Shade. He had followed someone of an unknown identity into the Eldwitch Woods, hoping to speak with the Great Witch to shed light on the doubts in his mind. Refusing to speak with him, Barnham fell unconscious before he could draw his sword, discovering she had disappeared when he regained his consciousness. Layton deduces that she had escaped through a secret passage of some sort, and notices red liquid had been spilled behind the throne, despite the throne not being stained. The Shades attempt to attack Barnham out of anger, but he counterattacks by dropping the chandelier on them. He then leaves, thinking it was important that he protected the Storyteller from the Great Witch. Layton and Maya soon find the wall stained with liquid led to a secret passageway where the Great Witch had escaped, and decide to follow it.
