  • [music playing]

  • [knocking]

  • -Well, well. [inaudible] spray.

  • No pulse, you're good.

  • -Come in.

  • -Well, there are definitely more than last night.

  • -A smile wouldn't kill them.

  • -It's going to take time to drive out

  • that mix of blood lust and attitude.

  • -Wonderful news-- your fiancee, the princess Adze,

  • will be presented to you in five minutes.

  • I think it's time to ditch the breather trash, hm?

  • -He can't force you into this engagement.

  • Just don't show up.

  • -She's Ramanga's daughter.

  • I can't insult him.

  • I need his support with the High Council.

  • But I'll find a way to get rid of her.

  • -We'll find a way.

  • We're in this together.

  • --[shouts] Message from Van Helsing.

  • He's going to be late delivering the blood to feed the ferals.

  • -Why aren't we upstairs?

  • Why are we stuck in a classroom like a bunch of kids?

  • -The Draculas are hosting an important ritual.

  • -And they don't want us making the place look untidy.

  • -Is that why we haven't got our blood?

  • Vlad's too busy partying?

  • -Our supplies have been delayed.

  • -Not good enough.

  • -A suit?

  • -Well, jeans and a T-shirt would have

  • been seen as disrespectful.

  • Are you sure you want to be here for this?

  • -Are you kidding?

  • I want to get a proper look at the competition.

  • -There is no competition.

  • -Right answer.

  • COUNT: [laughing] A great day, old friend!

  • -Hm, the first step in joining together of two noble houses.

  • COUNT: Ah!

  • Bueno.

  • -Is this seat taken?

  • -It is now?

  • -Unless my senses deceive me, that perfume you're wearing--

  • -Is distilled from the flower of The Deadly Nightshade.

  • -The Deadly Nightshade is the emblem of my clan.

  • -Really?

  • I had no idea.

  • [trumpets]

  • -I present Princess Adze.

  • [music playing]

  • COUNT: Absolutely charming!

  • You're a fortunate man, Vlad.

  • [applause]

  • [applause]

  • [applause]

  • -Now remember, the chosen couple must not meet again

  • until the blood tea ceremony tomorrow night.

  • So, what do you think of your new consort?

  • No need to answer.

  • I can see the desire in your eyes.

  • [laughing]

  • -What's the blood tea ceremony?

  • -Just part of the process.

  • All show, no substance, just like my engagement.

  • -There's a problem with the ferals.

  • [bats squeaking]

  • -Some of them have tried to raid the school nature club.

  • They're desperate for a feed.

  • I can't contain them for much longer.

  • VLAD: I'm sorry, do you want to go back

  • to dossing about in abandoned buildings

  • and feeding off stray cats?

  • Because, if you want a life here,

  • the only way it's going to work is

  • if you listen to Bertrand and me.

  • -If you can't deliver I'll find my own food.

  • -Lose the attitude Ryan.

  • -Stay out of it, breather!

  • -What are you talking about?

  • VLAD: It's not funny, Ryan.

  • [hissing]

  • -OK, bad joke.

  • Chill out.

  • VLAD: [inaudible]

  • -Yeah, well, persuading slayers to donate their blood

  • is turning out to be a lot tougher than we thought.

  • -We'll have to introduce the soya

  • blood earlier than I planned.

  • I'll get Renfield to start producing.

  • We're going to need volume.

  • -What's this I hear about your-- your fiance?

  • -She's not my fiance.

  • Bertrand, I'm going to need you to do some digging on Adze.

  • [music playing]

  • -It's all going to plan.

  • Nobody suspects a thing.

  • -What are you doing in here?

  • -Fancy a walk after dinner?

  • -Who was with you?

  • I thought I heard voices.

  • -Nope, it's just me.

  • -Let's get back to class.

  • Can't have you lot roaming around.

  • [music playing]

  • -You look positively malevolent.

  • -You say the nicest things.

  • -Eyes full of treachery, lips as cold as the grave.

  • Did I do something wrong?

  • -On the contrary, you've done nothing.

  • You agreed to help me get a seat on the High Council.

  • -I will.

  • You have my word.

  • -As what?

  • An evil, duplicitous vampire noble?

  • Hardly a cast iron guarantee, is it?

  • I think actions speak so much louder than words.

  • -Don't think you're meant to be up here.

  • -I heard there was a party.

  • Thought I might crash it.

  • -Party?

  • I wish.

  • Just my brother's boring engagement.

  • -Well maybe we ca liven it up a bit?

  • -You love to stir things, don't you?

  • -It's part of my charm!

  • [door creaking]

  • -Go.

  • -Adze's ancestry is without blemish.

  • She's the direct descendant of numerous kings

  • and princes going back centuries.

  • On paper she's the perfect match for you.

  • -Perfect?

  • She wouldn't be interested in Vlad

  • if he wasn't the chosen one.

  • VLAD: Hm, thanks.

  • -I mean she's a mercenary, total grave digger.

  • Nail her in a coffin and post her somewhere sunny.

  • -If there are no skeletons in her cupboard, we create one.

  • JONNO: And we catch it on digital camera?

  • -Show the video to Ramanga and the Count.

  • VLAD: Adze's disgraced, and it's bye, bye engagement.

  • Sounds good to me.

  • ERIN: Usually my feminist principals

  • would have me questioning such a chauvinistic plan.

  • But, in this case--

  • -I'll give it a go.

  • -What, you think I'm punching above my weight?

  • -Before the peace, she was a traditional vampire.

  • Now, offer her dinner, and you could be on the menu.

  • -Look, I'm a trained slayer.

  • I can look after myself.

  • Look, I want to do this.

  • Vlad and Erin's relationship represents

  • the future for vamps and breathers.

  • I won't let anything destroy them.

  • -No, it's too dangerous.

  • -He'll be fine.

  • Like he said, he can handle himself.

  • -If anything goes wrong, you know what I'm saying?

  • Better dead than undead?

  • No offense.

  • -None taken.

  • -All right.

  • -Good evening, Princess.

  • For you.

  • -You know, if I touch them they'll wither and die.

  • -Not these.

  • They've been dipped in liquid nitrogen.

  • Like you, their beauty is frozen in time.

  • Well, are you enjoying your visit?

  • -It has its attractions.

  • -Yeah, this is quite an interesting old building.

  • -Look into my eyes.

  • Deeper.

  • -She's going in for the kill.

  • -We just have to sneak one shot.

  • ANZE: Look deeper.

  • ERIN: Vlad.

  • Vlad!

  • -OK, get in there.

  • -Well, Jonno, there you are.

  • Your mom's on the phone.

  • -A sensitive vampire, who knew?

  • -It's about dignity.

  • -Jonno put his life on the line and you're

  • worried about your feelings?

  • -We're busy, Dad.

  • COUNT: Well take a moment to insure those sewer rats who

  • attend your school leave the premises before sunrise.

  • I found her vagabond brother dossing under my desk.

  • And if I find him there again he'll be undead meat.

  • Well, not long now until the blood tea ceremony.

  • Your time's almost up.

  • -What did he mean?

  • -Ignore him.

  • But, if Ryan's taken to wandering about the school,

  • we need to find him before the breather kids arrive.

  • -I'll track him down.

  • -Not on your own.

  • -Uh, I can look after myself.

  • And you need to concentrate on getting rid of Adze.

  • -You haven't told her what the blood tea

  • ceremony really means, have you?

  • -No need.

  • It's not going to happen.

  • -All fixed.

  • [music playing]

  • [knocking]

  • -Enter.

  • -Princess, Vladimir Dracula sent me

  • to see if there's anything you need.

  • -I need distraction.

  • RAMANGA: I mentioned your candidacy to the president,

  • and for the next 10 minutes I couldn't get a word out of him

  • because he was laughing so hard.

  • -Ugh!

  • -It's going to take a while.

  • You'll be overturning centuries of tradition.

  • -You've got two weeks.

  • -So delightfully unreasonable.

  • -I just have faith in your powers of persuasion.

  • -Hm.

  • -The rewards will be great for both of us.

  • Are you spying on me?

  • -I like to think of it as looking out for you.

  • He's got to be 600 if he's a decade.

  • INGRID: Apparently he's 515, unless you

  • think he lies about his age.

  • I'm playing the long game.

  • You wouldn't understand.

  • -Well, you might be surprised.

  • The "Magnus Fabula?"

  • -It's the history of the High Council,

  • so I'll know if Ramanga is lying to me.

  • So I don't need looking out for.

  • -Yeah, but isn't it good to know you've got backup just in case?

  • -Ryan?

  • Sorry.

  • -[laughs]

  • [shouting]

  • [music playing]

  • ANZE: [laughing] Could you teach me?

  • [laughing]

  • -You've just been fed.

  • -Bottle fed, like a baby!

  • -They could hand you over to the slayers for this.

  • -Better not tell anyone, then.

  • Brutal.

  • -Why won't you listen to Vlad?

  • You'd have a much better life.

  • -Vlad!

  • Why do you think he's so special?

  • He's about to dump you for a princess.

  • -You are where of the allegations

  • Vladimir has made against you?

  • -Well can you off any defense?

  • -I was alone and bored?

  • -[sighs]

  • -What?

  • So you threw yourself at my friend?
