  • [theme music]

  • [thunderclap]

  • [computer beeping]

  • -Morning, Renfield.

  • -Your breakfast, Master Vlad.

  • 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.
