An old lover from Edward's past returns just as he assures Brenda there are no more surprises.
Cecelia asks for Edward's help in saving her new ghoul lover. But the only way to save him is for Edward to drive a stake into Cecelia's heart.
Waiting just outside is Cecelia's sire. He wants her to come home and threatens to kill the ghoul unless they turn Cecelia over to them.
