And the post. -This screen shows the exact position of every person in the school, even you. -Who, me? -So who's this? Bertrand was right. There is a shapeshifter in this house. And it's with Malik. RENFIELD: Hm. That's me. ELISABETTA (VOICEOVER): The fun's nearly over. Just two more deaths, and you will sit on the Dracula throne. -I'm well aware of that, Mother. ELISABETTA (VOICEOVER): Don't take that tone with me. -We got her. -Who? ELISABETTA (VOICEOVER): You can't back out now. We came here to destroy the Draculas. -You did. I've finally found my father. Have you any idea what a big deal this is? ELISABETTA (VOICEOVER): Your father's the cheating rat who abandoned us. -If you hurt my dad, I will dust you. ELISABETTA (VOICEOVER): You'll regret this. THE COUNT: Who was that? -Yeah. -My mum. -That thing was Elisabetta? Well, she really hasn't aged well. -She's a shapeshifter. He's been working with her, trying to dust us all. -It's true. But I changed my mind. VLAD: You can't trust him. He's a ruthless killer with-- with no morals-- -That is why you need me on your side. With Mum after you blood, you're going to need all the help you can get. [bell ringing] VLAD: Bertrand knew about dark forces. Hm, shame somebody staked him. MALIK: Actually, that was me. Well, me and Mum. Bertrand was onto us, so we tricked Vlad into staking him. [laughs] What? It's a classic wind-up. -He's completely psychotic. -Oh, he's a chip off the old stake, all right. So what's your plan? -Bertrand had books on shapeshifting. -Right. We need to find the most boring tome. ERIN: "Fangstastic at 500." Oh, "An Illustrated Guide to Transylvanian Bog Maggots," oh. Heh. -Hm? -Eh. -Mm. -"Doing the Bite Thing: Morals and Ethics for Vampires." This is impossible to decipher. THE COUNT: Put it down. Oh, "On the dark art of shapeshifting." Vladdy, you're a genius! -It was written by an ancient slayer who fought with a shapeshifter and won by developing an alchemical formula which trapped it in one body. RENFIELD: What's the formula? Crystallized pyretheum? Oh, these are very rare ingredients. -Just do it! You and you, help him, and do exactly as he says. -Not him. I'm not having him anywhere near it. THE COUNT: This is no time for bickering. We need that formula, before she strikes again. -I'll help you. -No, no, you stay with me. -But I can protect you. -At times like these, I need Vlad by my side. RENFIELD: Keep on. Another few hours till it's produced. Hm. Coming along nicely. I think Master will be pleased with my progress report. Ah, ah, ah. You keep stirring, hm? Oh, and whatever you do, don't allow it to boil. [cackles] -Vlad's still the Count's right-hand man, and you're just the kitchen boy. -Not for long. -You may be the oldest son, but you'll never be Count Dracula. Not until you take down Vlad. And I know something that would crush him like that. MALIK: Do we have to play this game? -Yes. Because I only play on the winning team. -As soon as the anti-shift's ready, we wait for her to show herself. Then I go out and trap her. All you need to do is stay here and tell me where she is. -Yes. VLAD: We could be waiting here for hours. How's the anti-shift formula coming along? -Oh, well, it needs to be stirred on a very low heat-- -Would you just tell us? When'll it be ready? -Everybody's so touchy this morning. -What's this? -Post. I-- I did mention it. -Renfield, this is marked Urgent. -Yeah, well, I was-- I was-- JONATHAN (VOICEOVER): Dear Vlad, by mind-wiping the slayers, you failed me and our friendship. Why should I trust you again? -I need to go out. I won't be long. -Oh, yes, don't worry about me. I'm only under attack from a murderous nemesis who's been plotting revenge for the last 400 years. -We can't do anything until the anti-shift is ready. You'll be safe here. You'll know as soon as she makes a move. Just sit tight. And don't trust Malik. -Miss McCauley. Hmm. What are you doing here at this hour? -Hi, Mr. Count. Preparing for the practical year 11 chemistry exam. -Oh, practical chemistry, my favorite subject. -Oh, it's not mine. But I've got to cover until Mr. Bertollini gets back. -Mr. Bertollini? Oh, didn't he tell you? He's gone home. To Italy. -Italy? -Mm. -Well, he didn't say anything. -Oh. -No letter of resignation. -Well, I expect he blames me for his accident. These Mediterranean types are so, uh-- [glass breaking] Passionate. -He might have called, or-- -Yes. I'm sure we'll find another science teacher. If there's anything else you need-- RENFIELD (ON COMM): Come in. Come in. Come in. Over. Over. Master! -A state-of-the-art-- RENFIELD (ON COMM): Come in, over, Master! -Photocopying thing. RENFIELD (ON COMM): Come in, Master! Master! -Excuse me. RENFIELD (ON COMM): Come in, Master! Master! -What? -The shapeshifty thingy! Oh-- uh-- it's-- it's coming after me! THE COUNT (ON COMM): All right, all right. Stay where you are. -Aah! It's in the room! -Save yourself, Renfield. I'll take care of it. Go, go, go! -Over and out. -Go! [laughs] [electricity crackling] [RENFIELD AND THE COUNT BOTH SHOUTING] -I told you-- [beep] -I told you to stay put. -No you didn't, you told me to go out, save myself, and you'd take care of it. So what are you doing now? -What? What, what? Talk sense, you dribbling flunky! -No, no, no, no, you're in there, and now you're here. -Yes. I-- [electricity crackling] -What-- what-- what part of the word "shapeshifter" don't you understand? She could be anyone or anything. And now thanks to you, we have no way to track her down. -What do we do now? I -What Draculas do best. -Run away. -Well, second best. We hide. -Master? Mas-- Master! Master! -Stay where you are. VLAD: I got your letter. I've come to help, if you'll let me. I know what I did was wrong, but we were on the verge of total war, and I was desperate to save the peace. -You're actually trying to defend what you did? -I made a monumental mistake. but in a world without slayers, vampires are too dangerous. We need you. Please, let me know reverse the mind wipe. -I trusted you once. I don't like making the same mistake twice. -You're not. Let me start with your mum. -All right. Mum. -Mina, look into my eyes. Balance must be restored. Light to darkness. ERIN (VOICEOVER): I like watching you fail. -Life to death. Slayers to vampires. I can even feel your suffering. -Light to dark-- ERIN (VOICEOVER): Broke down by a girl. [hissing] -This is your fault! You linked us for eternity. -Nngh! Get out of my mind. -Aahh! VLAD: Awaken and know the truth. [digital beeping] -Jonno, what's he doing here? JONATHAN: It's all right, Mum. Thank you. -Don't thank me. The balance is restored. -Dad! The anti-shift's ready. -Is that all we've got? -I did say the recipe would reduce considerably. THE COUNT: I'll reduce you considerably. [knock] RENFIELD: Master! The shapeshifter grabbed me! VLAD: Well, I-- I think we found our shapeshifter. -She threw me in the slime pit. -She's the shapeshifter, Master! -Let's kill them both, just to be on the safe side. -Oh! Yes, Master. -Yes, Master.
