While under the influence of Ray, Josh beats Marcus, overpowering him with his temporarily superhuman strength. Marcus did not take the humiliation well. Without Bishop's orders, he brutalises Josh's sister Emily outside a club. This act, and is failed attempts to lure Aidan back, have caused him to lose Bishop's favour recently.
Warned by Aidan, Josh moves with Emily back to the family's house, only for Marcus to follow them. After a brutal fist fight with Aidan, who demands Marcus keep their rivalry between them and keep Josh's family out of it, Marcus retreats.
Marcus is later shown to be in contact with another Vampire coven. These Vampires appear more traditional than Marcus' brood, sleeping upside down in burlap sacks to protect them from the sun and using Humans as familiars. It is unknown if Marcus if a formally contacting them on behalf of Bishop or is their spy in Bishop's coven.
