Bad Blood #2
Writer : Jamie Delano
Artist : Philip Bond
Dolly vents her frustration at being held captive by the Duke of Hartwell by trying to burn his stately manor to
the ground, getting so far as to firebomb the Duke's Bentley before Dobbs and Dobbs cart her off in a bid to once again
convince her of the validity of the Blood Lines television series. Treated to a sneak preview of the second episode,
which portrays her as the granddaughter of Princess Diana, Dolly becomes convinced that the whole thing is an elaborate
hoax. Before she can storm out of the manor, Dolly finds herself face to face with her bed bound father.
Constantine, meanwhile, finds himself getting the third degree from his police captors - who are anxious to learn of
his part in Dolly's disappearance and the reasons behind the production of the Bloodlines program. Blackmailing his way
to freedom, John gathers Chas and Sis (Dolly's security guard friend from the clinic) and brings them up to speed on Dolly's
Angry as ever
Dolly's father comes clean - telling his daughter of his time as a royal bodyguard to King Charles. When Charles hooked
up with the wrong woman. Dolly's father was forced into killing her but when he realises that the woman he has just killed was
pregnant, he cuts the baby from its dead mother's womb. Taking the royal heir home, Dolly was raised as his own. With his
confession made, Dolly's stepfather breathes his last.
As the second episode of Bloodlines plays to the general public - showing Dolly conceiving a child by Rex, the son of the Duke of
Hartwell - Constantine realises that the remnants of the monarchy are making a last ditch effort at derailing the new republic by
making Dolly a new 'Queen Of Hearts'. Refusing to fall for Rex's advances off camera, Dolly is drugged as Constantine gets a lead
on her whereabouts.
