  • [music playing]

  • [footsteps]

  • -Any sign of Vlad?

  • -I have searched the length and breadth of five counties.

  • And nothing.

  • You're back early.

  • Did you search properly?

  • -I assure you, Count--

  • -You assured me you'd be a good mentor to my son.

  • So why has he felt the need to go missing for a whole week?

  • [door opening and closing]

  • -If anything has happened to him,

  • the Vampire High Counsel and I will

  • hold you entirely responsible.

  • -Perhaps, I could, uh, go out and pin

  • some lost posters onto some trees.

  • -(FRIGHTENING VOICE) This is my son, not some missing monkey!

  • [thunder]

  • -If you're done, Miss Ingrid.

  • Is Ingrid OK?

  • -I wouldn't know.

  • I haven't seen her for weeks.

  • -Yeah, but--

  • [panting]

  • [owl hooting]

  • -Ryan?

  • Are you there?

  • [leaves rustling]

  • -I'm here, sis.

  • -Ryan, thanks so much for coming--

  • -Don't get any closer.

  • I can't trust myself.

  • -How are you?

  • I look a real state, don't I?

  • -No, it's just so good to see you.

  • -How are you getting on?

  • -Vlad's gone.

  • Ingrid's weird.

  • The Count and Bertrand are at each other's throats.

  • And I've nearly run out of stasis spray.

  • They could turn on me at any minute, so I left.

  • What is it?

  • -Nothing.

  • -Ryan!

  • -I'm only just hanging on here.

  • There's not much of the human part of me left.

  • I'd hoped you'd found a cure.

  • -I tried, honest--

  • -I know.

  • I know.

  • -I'll go back.

  • -No It's too dangerous.

  • -I'll be OK.

  • There's one more thing I can try.

  • There's a book.

  • It's special in some way.

  • If I can open it, maybe there's something in it!

  • -I hate asking you to do this.

  • -It's not your fault.

  • It's Ingrid's.

  • She did this to you.

  • -Mm, mmm.

  • -Master.

  • -Oof, all I want is a hot mug of type O in my cozy coffin.

  • -It's, uh, Miss McCauley.

  • Uh, she's worried about Miss Ingrid

  • and, uh, wants to see you.

  • -Why is there no rest for the wicked.

  • -I saw Ingrid earlier.

  • She seems very down.

  • -Really?

  • I wonder why?

  • -Well, from the very little I could get out of her,

  • she's got no sense of purpose, feels her life is meaningless.

  • -Hm, of course it is.

  • She's a girl.

  • -Sorry?

  • -No, I was just saying, it's very

  • difficult raising a young girl.

  • -I can imagine.

  • I've got a friend, Dr. Seward.

  • She's a psychologist.

  • I could ask her to see Ingrid.

  • -Well, that would be so kind.

  • I'll be happy to sign any commital papers.

  • -That won't be necessary.

  • She'll come and see her here.

  • -Oh, of course.

  • One step at a time.

  • -Hello, you must be Ingrid.

  • I'm Dr. Seward.

  • But you must call me Joan.

  • Can I open the curtains?

  • -No.

  • -OK, shall we, um, shall we sit down?

  • Right.

  • OK, Ingrid.

  • Can you give me one word that best describes your life?

  • -Pointless.

  • -I'm sure others don't see your life in that negative way.

  • What about friends and family?

  • -I don't have friends.

  • -Why?

  • -I suck the life out of them.

  • -OK, let's talk about your family.

  • [music playing]

  • [thunder]

  • -You're so fat.

  • We could carpet the castle with one of your enormous dresses.

  • Haha!

  • -Yes, and we could sandblast the stonework

  • with a whiff of your wormy soil breath.

  • -I hate you.

  • -I hate you more.

  • THE COUNT: Atilla and Crone!

  • What an unpleasant surprise.

  • What is that?

  • -Home sweet home.

  • -Nothing special.

  • ERIN (VOICEOVER: There's a book.

  • Maybe it has a cure if I can find it.

  • -This is my son, not some missing monkey.

  • Oh, Renfield, Renfield, come polish

  • my boots with your tongue!

  • Ha!

  • -What do you think you're doing?

  • -Just bringing in your freshly washed cape, Master.

  • -Mm, well, now you've been wearing it

  • against your disgusting carcass, it's

  • going to need washing again, isn't it?

  • -Yes, it is.

  • -Mm, and when you finish that, you

  • can polish my boots with your tongue, can't you?

  • -Yes, I can.

  • -Can you tell me what you see when you look in the mirror?

  • -Nothing.

  • -Do you mind if I tell you what I see when I look at you?

  • I see a girl who, for whatever reason,

  • has allowed herself to become detached from life.

  • And we need to-- we need to reconnect you.

  • What are you feeling right now?

  • -Irritated.

  • -I can have that effect on people.

  • What else are you irritated at, Ingrid?

  • -I think Vlad's proved he's not a worthy heir.

  • I think it's only fair I should take his place.

  • -Don't be stupid child, girls don't inherit the title.

  • -Back to the tower room.

  • -Uh, I don't think so.

  • I'm the eldest.

  • I'm having that one.

  • -But I called it.

  • -When?

  • -In the hearse.

  • -Right.

  • Well, I called it before you were born.

  • So kiss my cake.

  • -Please, this is very simple.

  • Vladimir will have the room.

  • I'm proud of you, boy.

  • At last, you're showing an interest

  • in violence and cruelty.

  • -I'm violent and cruel, Dad.

  • Look.

  • -Ow!

  • -But there's something very important you've overlooked.

  • -What?

  • -It's Vlad that I'm interested in.

  • -Dad doesn't call my brother "the Chosen One" for nothing.

  • -Oh, how do you get on with your father?

  • Tell me about your relationship.

  • -I wouldn't call it a relationship.

  • I'm a Dracula.

  • I'm far too evil for birthdays.

  • -So you won't want this card from your mother then.

  • -Dad!

  • You garlic muncher!

  • -Language, Ingrid.

  • -Ingrid is a born trouble-maker who

  • delights in causing as much disruption

  • to the class as possible.

  • -Oh, Ingrid, can't you see I'm busy with the future Count

  • Dracula here.

  • -But I'm the eldest.

  • I want to inherit the title.

  • -Mmm, Countess Dracula.

  • -Countess Dracula.

  • THE COUNT: That's a good one.

  • Presents!

  • Oh, oh, the un-mortification.

  • Vladdie, I've forgotten your birthday.

  • -My birthday.

  • My 16th birthday.

  • -Oh, nonsense.

  • If it was the castle bell would be tolling to summon you

  • for your vampire transformation.

  • [bell tolling]

  • I can't hear anything at all, can you?

  • [bell tolling]

  • All right, so it's Ingrid's special day!

  • [bell tolling]

  • Here, have a vintage fang brush.

  • -What do you mean we're going home?

  • -It's the neighbors, Ingrid.

  • They're driving us out with their good turns

  • and nauseating favors.

  • -But you realize how popular I am at that school?

  • For the first time in my life, I actually exist.

  • Don't you care about my feelings at all?

  • -Oh, Ingrid, silly, of course I don't.

  • Now, pack your bags.

  • We're leaving at sunset.

  • -A lot of dad's struggle bringing up girls.

  • Do you think your father found your growing up

  • difficult to handle?

  • -I need a costume for the school party.

  • -Why?

  • What happened to that dress thing?

  • -Ruined.

  • I found it in Renfield's wardrobe

  • with all the stitching burst.

  • [clang]

  • -Mmm, well, there's a simple solution to this.

  • You'll have to get a job.

  • -Me?

  • Work?

  • -It'll do you good to get out of the castle,

  • become someone else's problem.

  • -Why can't Vlad get a job?

  • -Because he has one already, heir to my thrown.

  • -Aargh!

  • [music playing] --bones them bones, them jaw bones.

  • Them bones them bones, them jaw bones--

  • -Aargh!

  • Ugh.

  • -Ah, huh-huh-huh-hu--

  • -Oh, dear.

  • Well, that's a day's wages you owe me.

  • And you can forget about going to any parties until I get it.

  • -The day I was born, it was like a stake through his heart.

  • DR. SEWARD: It can't have been easy for him.

  • He must have made a lot of sacrifices,

  • bringing you up on his own.

  • -He loves sacrifices, never made any for me, though.

  • -Have you ever tried to resolve your conflict,

  • say by talking to him about it?

  • -Yeah.

  • THE COUNT: Ungrateful spawn!

  • I'll banish you to the darkest pits of Hades!

  • -Yeah?

  • Well, bring it on!

  • -You will never see the light of day again!

  • -I won't anyway.

  • I'm a vampire now.

  • -Aargh!

  • Ingrid, remember what happened to the last daughter

  • who challenged me?

  • -I'm you're only daughter.

  • -You are now.

  • DR. SEWARD: Dealing with unreceptive parents

  • can be challenging.
