Pondering the Opening Movie V

Now fleshing out a chronology of course depends on what is historical and what is metaphorical, but I will give you my guess and then hope you will give me yours. In this Chronology I presuppose, that we always look out of the nameless one's eyes in each and every flashback sequence. Furthermore I assume, that we do not see the flashback sequences in the order they actually took place in the past. The oldest material in the flashback will be first and the newest material last. I have given them small subtitles to ease the understanding of how I perceive of the story we experience in the flashback:
4. We see a hand, which is not in the undead state caress the woman's face. It looks very much like the woman we saw in flashback 3. Suddenly she vanishes into thin air. The person, who caressed her looks around in a desperate manner finding nothing except an empty room. Suddenly he sees her again perhaps in another place since the light shifts dramatically. Yet, this time she has become a terrible undead corpse, which along with many other undead corpses point at you as if they pronounce you guilty.
