After recovering in hospital from Herrick's near-fatal attack, Mitchell vows to deal with the vampire leader and his followers once and for all. Annie's decision to stay with her friends and reject the Door to the Afterlife appears to have given her new powers, and she decides to use it to help Mitchell in his confrontation with the vampires.

Meanwhile, George finds himself facing a terrible dilemma: should he join his friends in their forthcoming battle, or flee to safety to start a new life with Nina? Realising that his friends are counting on him, George decides to help Mitchell and Annie – but in the final showdown with Herrick and the vampires, not everyone is destined to survive…
