A stranger called Death comes to the town of Wasau looking for von Emmelman, and he confuses the local postmaster for the von Emmelman of World War I. No matter, for Death plans to follow through and kill the man he wanted to kill 30 years earlier. Then The Heap appears just before the telling blow and Death senses that the muck monster is the one he seeks.
