Will decides the better part of valour is to not walk down a dark tunnel by himself. When he reaches the shaft upwards, it is completely filled with John's pebble form, which normally fairly malleable, is packed so tightly into the shaft that Will is stuck in the tunnel.
Being distracted by however his Pebble form is manipulating Jameson, he doesn't notice Will.
Jack informs the others of what he has learned about the capabilities

Wolf picks up the Cyber-Vampire and tosses it closer to the armed men, "Ya. It's daylight out here but wasn't in the attic. About four of these things attacked. For what I can tell it looks as if someone is using cybernetics to help combat the sunlight and other weaknesses Vamps have. We only killed one. Wounded some of the others. Took off down the tunnel where Jameson is. But before we get to that. I have a question for you." Wolf looks directly at the person who has been taking to him. "Why are the towns people afraid of you? Rather then the towns folk being excited or grateful of your approach, they responded with fear...Now why is that? After what just happened they should have been at least a little happy at getting more hands to help with recovery and medical needs, but they weren't. They were scared...of you...Why? What do you do to these people that they would fear your approach even though they just survived a building collapsing on them?"

To all Jack speaks out, “When you fight Vampires, they have followers that appear to be normal. They might be under mind control. You know they hypnotize them. And they can’t stop. You guys don't remember that?”
As both Wolf and Jack attempt to get information and responses from the two men, John continues his attempts to puppet Jameson and doesn't notice Will. The two men look confused by the barrage of questions, insinuations and Jameson's behaviour. Wolf throws the corpse towards them and they both take a step back as it lands near them. As the group speak to them, the Quick Flex's radio crackles to life and a voice on the other end can be heard by anybody with enhanced hearing.
"Pickup complete. What is the situation in town? Where is Jameson?"
The Quick Flex turns away from you and covers the radio to speak. The other farmhand hefts his rifle at Wolf and Jack.
"Why would we know about vampires. Not really the territory for them is it. We get Sun and we get rain. Hardly going up in flames is it. We don't know you and for all we know you could be under the control of these alleged vampires. We're going to get some more help and you'd better let our people go and not be here when we get back!"
He says this in a raised voice, far louder than necessary. Jack happens to glance down where the injured lay behind the statue and he can see them shudder as the farmhand speaks.
Behind the two farmhands, one of the residents appears in the window. A middle aged woman, she shakes her head furiously where the two farmhands can't see her.
Behind the two armed men, Theodore remains pressed against the wall of the building, watching. All he can see is the two farmhands conversing with two men, possibly mercenaries, stood in front of a ruined building. There are sounds of people moaning behind the statue, but no other sign of the local inhabitants. A grackletooth with an odd voice is sticking up out of a hole in the ground, but there is something odd about his behaviour. One of the mercenaries throws the corpse of what he claims is a vampire down and there seems to be a bit of a standoff as both sides make accusations and demands.
