Back to the present, Dylan is suffering. Julius offers to help, but Vanessa refuses. He insists saying he needs to atone and that he wants to protect Vanessa and Dylan.

Julius offers Dylan to feed on him. He swears he can’t be turned back into a vampire anymore. Dylan feeds on Julius, but his blood grosses her out. She says it tastes like rat blood.

At the Triage, Mohamad is fighting off a fever. Jolene informs Flesh and Lucky that donating blood is mandatory. Flesh is hesitant. Mohamad warns him that he cannot go around telling people what he used to be.

Elsewhere, Vanessa sees a man on the road trying to fix a broken van. She approaches him from behind and points an ax on his neck. “I’m not gonna hurt you, but you have to come with me.”, she said. The man agrees. She brings him to Dylan. Upon realizing that Dylan is a vampire Daniel begs for his life. Vanessa calms him down. She tries to make him understand what she is doing and promises not to kill him. But Daniel pulls out his gun and shots Dylan. Vanessa panics and quickly cuts his throat.

Back at the Triage, people are lining up to donate blood. Lucky convinces Flesh to just get it over with. Flesh says he cannot and reveals his secret to her.
