Synopsis for "Still Waters"
In Rosewood, Illinois, a group of boys swim in a pond, despite their parents' warnings. Suddenly, the boys realize that the pond is infested with leeches, and they all rush out except Nicky, who has grown unnaturally pale. Just below the surface, vampiric creatures have drained him of all of his blood. The boys are too afraid to go back into the water for him, and they run away. The vampires return to their homes, deep under the water in old Rosewood, the sunken town.
Elsewhere, Abby Holland and the Swamp Thing reluctantly part ways, as he decides to take Constantine's bait, and go to Rosewood. As he concentrates on getting there, he recalls that he had been there once before, and that the town had been in such trouble that someone had cleansed the town by exploding the dam.
Eventually, the boys decide not to go back for Nicky, or tell anyone what they saw. All of them leave except for Howard, who returns to the water alone. At the same time, the vampires prepare the creature they call the Mother for a wedding of some sort.
Swamp Thing regrows a new body in Rosewood, and is met there by Constantine. Constantine warns that the vampires that Swamp Thing drowned out two years before had survived, and evolved to breathe under water. He bargains that he will reveal Swamp Thing's nature if he will deal with the vampires in the water. Annoyed, Swamp Thing begins walking into the water.
As Howard returns to the pond, Nicky appears to be alive, and demands that they go swimming again. It becomes clear that Nicky has become a vampire himself, and Howard is swarmed by Nicky's new companions. The Mother gives birth to many, many eggs, which soon begin to hatch.
