Detailed Story RecapEdit

Vampire LoreEdit

Fan FictionEdit


  • Lacroix: I have no taste for holiness in any of its forms. It plays havoc with my digestion.

  • Natalie: So what were you saying about the death penalty? I'm not sure I heard you right.
    Nick: I said I was against it.
    Natalie: A vampire against the death penalty? Yeah, that's rich.
    Nick: I'm coming around, aren't I? Besides, from a mortal's point of view, what makes you so sure death is a penalty?
    Natalie: Oh, no, no, no. That is the kind of question that gets us into all-night debates.


Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The German title for this episode is "Zum Tode verurteilt" ("Sentenced to Death").


Canadian ContentEdit


  • The method of securing Laura Garfield's custody transport to the airport for extraction is very light. She is restrained only with handcuffs, while riding in the back of Nick's Cadillac that has the top down. No respectable police agency would transport a convicted murderer in this way, especially if they wanted to keep the transport a secret.
