Three years later, a road crew was performing an excavation in the vicinity of her grave. Elena Munoz, an airline stewardess, accidentally cut herself while changing a flat tire. The scent of her blood revived Catherine who dug herself out of the ground.

Her sister stumbled upon the attack and Catherine killed her as well and stole her clothes. She then went to work for pimp, Ichabod Grace, as a call girl. She used some of her clients as a source for blood.
