Redmond Swann has captured Barnabas, Julia and her aunt and uncle Lara and Vincent Hoffman. Redmond tells the tale of how he is actually over two centuries old, and one of the first settlers of nearby Barretstown. A preacher – he elected to keep the town free of evil outside influences by forcing its inhabitants to keep the bloodline concentrated to Barretstown. The result is generation of disfigured inbred ghouls who follow Swann’s every command. But now he is on a quest to reclaim all those who descended from Barretstown and bring them home – including Julia Hoffman.

Redmond Swann and Barnabas have met before and he recognizes that he is a vampire. He places a cross around Barnabas’ neck, which begins burning into his chest.

Swann leaves the group under the watchful eye of one of his ghouls, Gregory while he goes to the church to prepare for their execution. Willie Loomis arrives shortly thereafter and frees them from the ropes. Barnabas forces Gregory to tell him where Swann’s congregation is.

They all go to the church and Vincent Hoffman seals all the doors and sets fire to the church. Everyone inside is killed. Barnabas and the others leave Barretstown.

Later, Angelique finds Barnabas' music box and calls to mind memories of the year 1790, when she first knew Barnabas prior to turning him into a vampire.

Final issue of the first series.
