Up to present day
Charles Randall discovers the house, but is silenced forever and tied to part of the Soustone. Charles becomes Belial's servant. Belial finds Adam Randall's address and arranges a visitation to give him the Seals. Their proximity begins a change in Adam's soul. He has visions and is drawn to the house. Charles Randall reaches out with his soul and taps into Rebecca Trevisard who tries to contact Adam through dreams. Adam and Rebecca arrive at the house more or less the same time. Belial and Florentine work independently on the same aims. The Temple wants to use Adam to find the Shrive and Sword, then use him to smash the last Seal. Belial and Florentine both want to be the one to free Satan. Within the last Seal lies the very heart of the Soulstone. But where are the Shrive and the Sword, the artefacts that can save or destroy mankind? Can Adam find them before Belial or Florentine, and will he be able to banish the Power of Satan? The final episode begins...
