Plot

The sound of lullabies descended over Mystveil, as Charity addressed the team. She then revealed Sebastian Havisham had been found, with multiple gunshots in his torso, and was now in critical condition in hospital. As Hope, comprehending the news, told the team she was fine, Tobias tasked Lawrence and the player with investigating the shooting. They headed to the foggy clearing, finding only Sebastian's footprints. Then, as the fog began to clear, they found editor-in-chief Elysia Rosenthal bloodless under the moonlight. Moira then confirmed she'd found two, fang-like, wounds on the victim's neck, with Draco suggesting a vampire was guilty. After Lawrence laughed off the rumours, they suspected Draco's father Count Blackwood, herbalist Evelyn Putnam, and journalist Beaufort Devereaux, a supporter of the Rose movement. Later, as the team recapped, Amethyst awkwardly revealed that she'd received a sealed letter from a socialite, who revealed that Elysia was her blood-donor.

They then approached Deanna Chambers's, the socialite, manor in the hills, where they found her standing on the moonlit porch. She then revealed her and Elysia were close as she gestured them into her study, with Elysia fascinated by vampire lore. There, in the study, they suspected vampire hunter Kelton von Heller. As Lawrence insisted vampires didn't exist to Pedro, they discovered the Count had ordered Elysia's story on vampires to be blocked, afraid of what it'd do to the population, and Elysia had approached Evelyn for blood bags, revealing Elysia wanted to try some. Back in the foyer, Lawrence admitted his bewilderment at Elysia's actions, before Antonio and Savannah revealed Deanna had accused Moira and Cornelius of harassing her.

They hurried to her mansion, where they found Cornelius with his newly-invented x-ray machine. Moira then revealed she wanted to study Deanna for her research, fully believing she was a vampire. Deanna then agreed to their requests and apologised for accusing them, admitting she'd been shaken since Kelton started watching her through the windows. They then confronted Kelton, who told them that Elysia had asked Deanna to turn her, revealing he considered them both threats. It was also discovered Elysia was blocking Beaufort's coverage of the Rose movement, admitting Elysia was a staunch supporter of Mayor Osborne. Finally, they discovered Kelton guilty.

When confronted, Kelton tried to deny his claims, telling them to aim their suspicion at the vampire in Mystveil, Deanna. As Lawrence declared vampires didn't exist, once more, he pressed on, eventually making Kelton crack. Kelton then explained that both Deanna and Elysia were abominations to humanity, they were threats, against God. He recounted how Elysia wanted to be "turned" for her research, which made him see Deanna would create more vampires if left unchecked. Deciding to kill two birds with one stone, Kelton attacked Elysia and used a blood pump to drain her blood completely, hoping the townsfolk of Mystveil would blame Deanna as the killer. He then revealed his hope that the townsfolk would kill Deanna themselves, hoping to rid Mysvtveil of vampires. Lawrence, now angry, then insisted he committed murder over a fairy-tale, before handcuffing him. In court, Judge Haddid sentenced him to life imprisonment. Afterwards, Amethyst congratulated the pair on solving the case, before hearing a woman shouting "soeur".

Amethyst soon turned, only to find her sister Aimee rushing up to her. The pair then shared a tight hug, where Aimee revealed she was on an extended vacation to Ravenedge to spend time with her sister. A cheerful Amethyst then asked where Aimee's bags were, where she awkwardly revealed she'd lost them when asking "some weird vampire lady" for directions. They soon returned to the Chambers estate, where Deanna reluctantly granted them permission to search once more. Eventually, they discovered Aimee's bag, along with a painting she'd made of a bride dressed in white. Aimee then revealed she'd seen the woman by the river and had a stroke of inspiration, before Deanna insisted she felt a dark presence in Mystveil.

Meanwhile, Selene Mitchell approached Sienna and the player, revealing she'd reconsidered and wanted to join Sienna's petition to stop Hugo Osborne demolishing more neighbourhoods. After making sure Selene's family were safe from the gang she was forced to join, Selene agreed with gratitude, vowing to help Sienna stop the Mayor. The next day, an angry Sienna entered the station with a newspaper, insisting Beaufort and the Rose movement were publicly supporting Sienna's petition. After speaking to Selene, who revealed she was a public supporter of the Rose movement, they confronted Beaufort as he was drinking. Sienna then told him and the Rose movement to stop, but Beaufort refused, saying he'd done research on Sienna, how she was forced to fight for scraps of food, how she had to seduce her way out of the neighbourhoods, and that he was surprised she wouldn't support the Rose movement. Sienna then told him that fighting for change through bloodshed was wrong, but Beaufort quipped that if nobody listened, they didn't have a choice. An angered Sienna then left.

Finally, it was revealed Sebastian was stable. In hospital, they found a paranoid Sebastian, gripping his wounds. Frantically, he revealed Lady Nightshade confronted him in the clearing, labelling him a sinner before firing her gun. As Sebastian asked for protection, Hope arrested him for his crimes. Sebastian, who had gone mad, was then sentenced to life in the Edgewater asylum. Afterwards, Charity declared they needed to discover more about the supposed Lady Nightshade. Meanwhile, Beaufort slowly explored a garden maze as fog crept in. After hearing wailing, he turned the corner, only to discover a woman in white. Her burned hand pointed at him and declared him a sinner, beginning to raise her revolver. Beaufort panicked, beginning to run through the maze. After a terrifying chase, Beaufort escaped... but the Lady had disappeared into the fog.
