Lianda is revealed to actually be a vampire and, in revenge for his persecution of the gypsies, transforms Dracula into a vampire. Turac then takes Dracula prisoner and goes to Dracula's home and murders his wife, but before he can murder his son, Dracula (who had broken free of his chains) returns and kills Turac who then turns into a vampire himself. Turac returns to his castle in Anakara and murders his wife and son, but his daughter Elianne was not killed.
