Finally arrested for the Box Tunnel massacre, Mitchell awaits his fate in a police cell; Annie refuses to help him escape, but vows to stay with him throughout his incarceration. Having regained his memory, Herrick has gone on a killing spree, callously stabbing Nina in the process; his next act is to stage a prison-break for Mitchell, removing all implicating evidence and the empty photographs that reveal his vampirism. To Annie’s distress Mitchell goes along with Herrick – he is only too aware of Lia’s prophecy that he will be killed by a werewolf, and is desperate to learn how Herrick returned from the dead. Meanwhile, Tom returns to the house and finds the bloody corpses of McNair and Nancy; discovering Nina still alive despite her injuries, Tom sees that she is rushed to hospital; he then buries McNair’s body and resolves to kill Mitchell, believing him to be responsible for his step-father’s murder. Learning about Nina, Annie arrives at the hospital and meets the ghost of one of the murdered policemen – and then watches as his corpse comes to life and gives her a warning. Following the policemen through his door into the afterlife, Annie meets Lia, who admits that she made up the prophecy about Mitchell’s impending death in revenge for his killing her. Deciding to test Mitchell’s loyalty, Herrick locks him in the Dog Fight cage along with his other captive, George; when George learns that his friend was responsible for the Box Tunnel murders and that Nina is apparently dead, he goes berserk. Herrick has succeeded in pitting friend against friend – and only one of them will survive the day…
