George: "It's not about you any more, so there's nothing left for you to do. You're like a piece of um... deadly furniture."
Mitchell: "Did you just call me deadly furniture?"
George insults Mitchell


Two vampires, Ivan and Daisy, arrive in Bristol to torment Mitchell and George over their involvement in Herrick's murder.

As George struggles to deal with the blood on his hands, he begins pushing Nina away – and finds himself drawn to Daisy instead. But Nina has her own problems: she too has become a werewolf, after being scratched by George. Meanwhile, Mitchell meets an attractive new doctor named Lucy, and gives her a goldfish.

Annie decides to get more involved in the real world, and gets herself a job as a barmaid; and the sinister Kemp continues his investigations into the supernatural: after a fatal experiment on a werewolf, he arranges a visit to the housemates’ home
