Trevor commands rune to possess body of guard, they have a conversation where the Rune swears vengeance at the party having made it take a life.
Hank asks the Rune to bring Blackburn back to life – which it does.
In an attempt to placate them, the posse destroys the rune, then Hank re-draws it in his own blood – costing him a part of his own vitality in the process.
To prevent Blackburn from further experimentations, Dr. Lee uses Mad Science to seal the cave, and then create a new one which the posse re-decorates to look like the original dig and blame the whole thing on ghost rock madness.
Dr. Blackburn’s journal retrieved, revealing the location of three more Blood Runes.
