- At the Gillman Hotel, Navidson is served with an compulsory purchase order by Dwight Patten, a building contractor and business crony of the mayor's. Navidson kicks up a fuss at the press conference held by acting deputy Black, but rumours about the unsavoury dealings at the hotel quell most of the opposition, despite this important landmark being put up for demolition.
- Social worker Dillon Seagrave is researching the history of the town, after a discussion with Grandma Lizzy about the old church ruins nearby he meets a mysterious and insane old man at the site, he ends with more questions than answers. His dreams are filled with disturbing images of the mayor, sacrifice and blood.
