Plot Summary[]

When a fresh drop of blood appears on the scry map, highlighting a small mining town in Western Pennsylvania, Constantine learns that several miners have been mysteriously killed. He deduces that these were caused by Coblynau, normally benign spirits of deceased miners who are being summoned and forced to kill. In town John bumps into Zed Martin, a woman with a mysterious past, and who recognizes him as the man who has been appearing in her visions. Constantine realizes that she has psychic powers, and uses her in his investigation of the town. They discover that the source of the curse is a Romani woman who summoned the spirits to punish the mine bosses and kill her husband. After the woman is killed by the spirits she summoned, Zed agrees to join in John's fight against the coming evil.
