"A Spectre Calls"
Becoming Human (Adam's Story)
Cutler is killing people and staging fake werewolf attacks, planning a staged expose in order to distract the public from finding out about vampires. Meanwhile, Permanent 'teenage' vampire Adam (having apparently become separated from his friends as seen in the Becoming Human spinoff) becomes romantically and sexually involved with Yvonne Bradshaw, a middle-aged schoolmistress with a history of dead lovers.
Fleeing the press, they come to Honolulu Heights in order to hide out. While there, Adam is photographed by the journalist Pete Travis, who realises Adam is a vampire, when his image does not show up on camera. Already investigating the hidden world of vampires for personal reasons, Peter enlists the help of Cutler. After Yvonne touches both Tom and Hal, they also fall for her, and Hal realises that she is a succubus - a half-demon seductress who first bewitches men and then drains life from them via sex, Adam having not succumbed only because as a vampire he is already dead.
Annie manages to separate Adam from Yvonne and tries to help both of them come to terms with her condition. Despite a period of self-disgust and resentment during which she almost kills Tom, Yvonne eventually accepts her nature, aided by Adam (who despite his initial disgust comes to realise that he genuinely loves her) and the two leave together. Aware of Cutler's true nature, Peter attempts to trap and expose him but his plan backfires and Cutler kills him. Cutler uploads the werewolf transformation footage of Tom to the Internet and begins his expose.
