Octavia's death

Nurse Octavia Daniels appears in Halloween II, played by Octavia Spencer.


Octavia Daniels appeared as part of a dream that Laurie Strode had two years after her initial encounter with her psychotic older brother Michael Myers. In the dream, Nurse Daniels worked at Haddonfield General Hospital and was the nighttime floor nurse. She had a close friendship with Doctor Maple and the two joked around each other.

When Laurie Strode "awoke", she attempted to visit the room of her friend Annie Brackett, who had likewise been brutalized by Myers, but Nurse Daniels forced her to leave. She escorted Laurie halfway back to her room when her attention was called to another matter.

Moments later, Nurse Daniels came upon Myers himself who slashed her across the face with his knife. Daniels was in shock and tried to get away, but Myers pursued her, pushing her to the floor and violently stabbed her to death.
