  • [theme music]

  • [chanting]

  • -Macul galom.

  • Elia don tilak.

  • [chanting]

  • -What are they doing?

  • It's a mourning ceremony.

  • [chanting]

  • -Elia don tilak!

  • -Thank you.

  • Means a lot that you're remembering Ryan.

  • -Who?

  • Ryan?

  • Oh.

  • Oh!

  • Him.

  • This wasn't for your inconsequential brother.

  • Move.

  • Thomas Owen, elder of the vampire High Council,

  • has passed.

  • -2,000 years old, and blind as a bat.

  • Senile old fool woke up in the middle of the day,

  • and opened the curtains.

  • -Still a bit upset, is she?

  • -We need to find out who killed Ryan.

  • -Haven't you got enough on your plate?

  • -That's why I'm putting you in charge of the investigation.

  • INGRID: I take it you'll be putting me forth in Thomas

  • Owen's place on the High Council?

  • -It was agreed that you would first

  • prove yourself by carrying out three tasks.

  • Us

  • -And I passed the first.

  • I foiled Vlad's plan to kidnap Adze.

  • -As long as Erin is around, there will still be plotting.

  • Your second task is to get her out of the way,

  • by any means necessary.

  • -You actually want me to organize your sand weekend?

  • -We have to keep up the pretense until I can find

  • a way out of this blood binding.

  • -You can put me down.

  • -It's a stag weekend.

  • No girls.

  • -I'm not staying here on my own.

  • Ryan's killer is still on the loose.

  • INGRID: You won't be on your own.

  • I'll look after you.

  • I feel terrible about Ryan.

  • I made him.

  • Looking after his little sister is the least I can do.

  • -Thanks, but I'll be fine.

  • -You'll be safe with me.

  • Let's do lunch.

  • My treat.

  • -Murder requires both motive and opportunity.

  • You had the motive.

  • -Did I?

  • -He ridiculed you.

  • -Everybody ridicules me.

  • -well, you also had the opportunity,

  • being in possession of the murder weapon.

  • -Oh.

  • This is Professor Renfield, at your service.

  • -I-- I wouldn't hurt a fly.

  • -Oh.

  • Is that right?

  • [fly buzzing]

  • -Ah ha!

  • -I know my rights.

  • I demand a lawyer.

  • -[whispering]

  • -My, uh, lawyer has advised me to plead

  • guilty with mitigation.

  • -Oh.

  • So you're admitting you killed Ryan?

  • -Never liked him.

  • And, as you said, I had both motive and opportunity.

  • -Right.

  • Now that's settled, can we go?

  • -Vlad ordered me to bring the murderer to justice.

  • -This murder was a classic.

  • It would have needed a brilliant mind and a dark soul.

  • It was a work of art.

  • Meticulously planned.

  • Ambitious, imaginative.

  • -Way beyond the limited capabilities of Renfield.

  • -My point pre-- cisely.

  • -Having one of the scrap kids on the school

  • Senate was your idea, wasn't it?

  • -What are you insinuating?

  • -You don't share Vlad's vision of coexistence.

  • What better way to derail the peace process,

  • then bump off one of the scrappers

  • and put the bat among the pigeons?

  • -I'd advise you, to plead the fifth.

  • -All right, all right!

  • The Senate idea wasn't mine.

  • It was Miss McCauley's.

  • -Oh, so you had an accomplice?

  • -No.

  • [bell ringing]

  • -I've got a confession to make.

  • I missed the Senate quiz because I fell asleep.

  • -Well, you've been working hard.

  • -I'll make amends by writing up for the school newsletter.

  • Starting with, who won?

  • -Um, Malik.

  • On a technicality.

  • -Perhaps I could interview both the candidates?

  • -Well, I'm not too sure Ryan's up to it.

  • -Oh, was he very disappointed?

  • -Ryan didn't take it too well.

  • But donating a mortarboard was an inspired idea.

  • -Mortarboard?

  • -This is for the winner of the Senate quiz.

  • It will need a cleaning before we present it.

  • -Ah.

  • Straightaway.

  • -I didn't donate a mortarboard.

  • -Oh.

  • Well, Renfield was under the impression you did.

  • -He must have got confused.

  • It wasn't me.

  • I don't believe in such archaic symbols or authority.

  • -The tickets!

  • They've arrived.

  • Is there one in there for me?

  • -Not another skull club reunion.

  • -Oh, contraire.

  • A stag weekend in Reger and a final chance

  • to let your fangs down before tying

  • the eternal marital knot to Adze.

  • -Jonno will be my best man.

  • We're not going to Reger.

  • Besides, you are way too old for club 18 to 320.

  • -Don't listen to him.

  • You don't look a day over 300.

  • -Vlad!

  • Your dad's giving me all these demands for the stag weekend.

  • I've already made legal plans.

  • -Well, stick to them.

  • It's my stag, not his.

  • It's going to be your wedding in less than a week.

  • If we're going to stop it, we need to act soon.

  • -Don't you think I know that?

  • -You're doing good.

  • Just play along with the stag thing.

  • Don't arouse suspicions.

  • -Why would I want to kill Ryan?

  • He was nothing to me.

  • An underling.

  • Irrelevant.

  • -On the contrary.

  • The fact he was Erin's brother is very relevant.

  • -Ah, how did you work that out?

  • -Erin's your rival in love.

  • You were warning her off.

  • -I'm a straight for the jugular kind of girl.

  • If I wanted Erin out of the way, I'd have done it myself.

  • You're pretty rubbish at this.

  • -Don't underestimate me.

  • -You haven't even asked yourself the most obvious question.

  • -Which is?

  • -Ryan was hardly the sharpest fang in the cave,

  • and he'd been a biter for what?

  • A few months?

  • -So?

  • -So, how does someone like that suddenly

  • have like 2,000 years of knowledge.

  • -What are you getting at?

  • -If Ryan hadn't have known all the answers to the Senate quiz,

  • he wouldn't have died.

  • -Nobody saw the Senate quiz questions except me.

  • I had them under lock and key.

  • -But you could have given him the answers.

  • -To what end?

  • -You tell me.

  • You tried to frame him before.

  • -If you've something to say, say it.

  • If not, I suggest you look for a suspect

  • amongst our real enemies.

  • Slayers and breathers.

  • -I'm thinking, a dark weave Oltenian lambswool.

  • I know a shepherd who grazes a pedigree flock

  • on the foothills of the Carpathian mountains.

  • -Does it matter?

  • THE COUNT: The blood binding of the Chosen One?

  • Of course, it matters.

  • Oh!

  • And button-hooves.

  • Biggie Nightshade is so last millennium.

  • Perhaps Monks-hood.

  • Just as toxic.

  • -Fine choice.

  • The blue will set your eyes off a treat.

  • All done.

  • -Right.

  • Now, for the tasting menu.

  • -Suit measured.

  • Date set.

  • Flowers chosen.

  • -I won't let this happen.

  • If it comes to it, we'll just have to leave here.

  • -Are you serious?

  • The Scrap is working.

  • Look at what you've achieved with the Ferals.

  • You'd give that all up for me?

  • -If that's what it takes.

  • [whistling]

  • -Erin said I could borrow her nail varnish.

  • -Hm.

  • Where's your [inaudible]?

  • Bertrand's looking for you.

  • -Then he'll have to wait.

  • -What's that?

  • -Stasis spray.

  • It's what Erin uses to disguise what she really is.

  • A breather.

  • I'm going to replace it with water, and then--

  • -The Chosen One, and a breather?

  • Is this some sort of sick joke?

  • -If you'd let me finish--

  • -It's her that needs to be finished.

  • How long have you known about this?

  • Who else is privy to this information?

  • -Well, Vlad, obviously.

  • Bertrand, Jonno, Renfield, Dad-- Mina knows, I think.

  • Um.

  • -Count Dracula is harboring a breather?

  • -Well, to be fair, he has tried to kill her in the past.

  • -And failed.

  • Don't make the same mistake.

  • -Hey, wait up.

  • Heard you were having a bit of a stag do.

  • -And I guess you want an invite?

  • -Well, if that's alright with you.

  • We'll have a party, me.

  • -OK, I don't see why not.

  • -Because then you'd have to invite all the other Scrappers.

  • -It's all right.

  • I won't tell anyone.

  • It'll be our secret.

  • What happens on the stags, stays on the stag, hm?

  • -They're bound to find out.

  • You'd have a mutiny on your hands.

  • -She's right.

  • I can't be seen to give preferential treatments.

  • Sorry.

  • -Do you see that?

  • I keep trying to get close to him.

  • Erin keeps getting in the way.

  • Dusty lines made things worse.

  • VOICE: Then we'll take her out of the equation.

  • -How?

  • VOICE: By sending her into a battle she will never win.

  • -Battle with who?

  • -Who are you talking to?

  • -I was conjugating Transylvanian verbs.

  • Someone looks pleased with themselves.

  • -Well, between you and me, you may
