*An undead Russian soldier who has guarded the mystical helmet at the bottom of the Norwegian Sea for a half century follows Abe's salvage mission back up to the deck of the ship. The frightened crew want to send the creature back to the deep, but Abe wants to ponder the soldier's intent. We see in flashback the mysterious Miss Varvara as she tasks the ill-fated soldier with his mission of bringing the helmet back to the Mother Russia. Ultimately, Abe sees wisdom in letting the guardian take the helmet peacefully back to the deep, but that other parties are not likely to let it lie there. *Source: Warlock
