Dozer helps to fight off the Night Tribes as Dane gets Claymore to safety. Jester, under attack from all sides, morphs into a vampire in the heat of battle, seemingly unaware of his own transformation. But it has not escaped the notice of Mother One.
As the team gains control over the situation, the BloodQueen is on the run with Red. They run into Raithan, who opposes Drakken's overthrow of house Rhys, just before being attacked by a Garond, indicating that Drakken has released the Beastlok.
As the fight with the Night Tribes continues, Dane sees Pilgrim appear just in time to save him. But she disappears again just as quickly.
While Drakken is furious over the escape of the BloodQueen, the Queen herself seems oddly excited to have lost her rule over the Vampire Nation.
"The Lone One"
The Werewolves and the Lone One's battle has brought them back to Justine and Conrad, but the wolves seem more scared of Conrad than anyone else. He soon reveals that he intends to steal the Lone One's immortal body for himself. In the scuffle that follows, the laboratory in Castle Frankenstein explodes. Later, the Lone One finds a piece of his corpse bride, vowing to find the remaining pieces and rebuild his intended mate.
