Detailed Story RecapEdit

Vampire LoreEdit

  • Injections of blood from a vampire have striking effects on human beings.

Fan FictionEdit



Behind the ScenesEdit

  • This episode has also been referred to by the title, "To Die For".
  • The German title for this episode is "Wenn Blicke töten", which is basically a straight translation of the English name.


  • It is strongly implied in the flashback that it was Janette who made the baroness a vampire. However, in I Will Repay, she told Nick that she had never brought anyone across, being "too much the glutton" to stop before killing.
  • In the morgue, Nick tells Natalie that vampires disappear when they die. However, in a number of later episodes in the series, it is established that vampire corpses remain intact unless burned by sunlight or fire.
