A wolf-shaped bullet.
How did you find out?
-I'm arresting you on suspicion of murder.
-You've no idea what you've done.
They've come for Mitchell.
I reported him.
Have you any, any idea what you've done?!
-Just take the bloody picture!
CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS
Just Rentaghost into the corridor, get the keys and let me out.
Without me, there's no proof.
I could get you a cup of tea and a Kit Kat if you want.
Look, in 20 minutes, they're going to move me
to a maximum-security station, and that's it.
Guards and guns. Even you won't be able to get me out.
I don't know how to make this any clearer to you.
I don't want you to get out.
So this is how is the world discovers vampires,
werewolves and ghosts, huh?
Yes, I suppose it is.
They're going to kill me, Annie. They're going to kill us all.
No, you don't know that.
They're frightened of us.
They should be.
Sorry, sir, no entrance to the public today.
My friend's in there. I just need to speak to my friend.
-Can I just go in and speak to him?
-It's not happening today, sir.
I swear, the man who did those things, that's not me any more.
You gave me a reason to fight it and try to be human again.
That's why I kept Herrick alive.
What's he got to do with this?
When I came to get you back from...
..from where you were,
they told me that if I brought you back, there'd be a price to pay -
that I'd be killed by a werewolf.
Who told you that?
I almost wanted it to happen,
just let fate take its course.
I mean, my God, to be free of all this...
But I fought it so I could be with you.
I didn't conceal it out of cowardice
but because there was nothing, no punishment on Earth,
worse than your disappointment.
Do you even know who you're in love with?
What do you mean?
Maybe you were happy to see those people bury their mums
and their dads and their children,
with no sense of...
Maybe you thought that...
we were worth it.
What the hell made you think I would?
I should just let you rot in here alone, but I won't.
The things we do for love, eh?
So that's the deal.
You give them justice...
-and you get me.
-Yeah, but for how long?
There's a bullet out there with my name on it.
So how long do I get you for, anyway?
Rule one of Vampire Club -
do not get arrested.
Even Seth knew that and he used to point at planes.
What the hell are you doing here?!
Putting the genie back in the bottle. Come on.
Mitchell. Mitchell, no. Please don't, not even if the whole world finds out about...
(This is not about that!
(He has the secret - he can tell me how to fight the prophecy.)
-In your own time.
I'll come back, I swear.
Was that necessary?
Oh, you're welcome(!)
Ah...now...this is what I'm looking for.
There's no such thing as vampires.
You're back, then?
Isn't that what you wanted?
No, no, no. What I wanted was to learn how to survive a werewolf attack.
Oh, well, I feel drenched with love(!)
So tell me.
What, now, during a prison break?
Come on, you got Cara to do it. How complicated can it be?
OK, just check the corridor.
No, he's gone!
He's bloody gone!
Paramedics answered a 999 to the suspect's house.
Multiple murders -
three police, two forensic,
three more in critical condition, including a female, late 20s.
HEART MONITOR BEEPS CONTINUOUSLY
Time of death... I'll get the charts.
He came from nowhere. Killed us all.
I'll help you. I'll show you what happens next.
Oh, my God!
It's OK. The door's...
# What's that barking?
# It's all starting
# Like a row
# Of dominoes
# Can you stop them falling?
# Someone's due a mauling
# Here it comes
# The wolf-shaped gun
# Annie, listen
# Here's your mission
# Mitchell's toast
# If you're a scaredy ghost
# Come to purgatory
# Stop shit getting gory
# Or the big bow-wow
# Ends your story now. #
That was me.
W-What was I saying?
I don't know.
It's your door.
It's what happens next.
-I'll come with you.
So am I.
'Tom, if you're reading this, then I'm dead.
'Somewhere in this house is a vampire.
'He's the one I've always been searching for.
'He was there when I became this creature,
'and tonight, I tried to kill him.
'If I had, I would have been able to stop.
'But I wasn't doing this for me, or the man I killed two months ago,
'or even your parents.
'This was for you...
'This must be the final act.
'Tom, I want you to live a different life now -
'one that's decent.
'You see, we've lost everything that was harmless and mundane.
'When I sat down to write this,
'I realised I'd forgotten how to hold a pen.
'It's so long since I did something so ordinary.
'I was selfish.
'I turned you into a weapon for my own war.
'The things I've asked you to do, they make me ashamed.
'Let it end. I want you to be human now.
'Stop this chaotic, violent life.
'Make this the end of that story.
'I died tonight, but don't avenge me.
'It's getting dark. I have to go.
'Always know that I love you, Tom.
'I wish I really had been your father.
'Your comrade, Anthony Michael McNair.'
-I've got to say, I'm ever so confused.
What's going on?
Just a precaution.
Pretty understandable, I think.
Why have you brought me here?
Surely, "Who have I brought here?" is more apropos.
I mean, one minute you're letting George tear my head off
for the sake of humanity, and the next,
you're massacring 20 of them in a train carriage.
I mean, talk about fickle!
Yeah, I wouldn't expect you to understand.
Your character has always been pretty consistent.
I think that was a dig!
Look, there's the natural ebb and flow of personality,
and there's being as mad as a gibbon, because...
then you're doing this whole pillar-of-the-community thing
while feeding me policewomen
so I can tell you how to survive a werewolf attack.
I mean, you make me dizzy! You really do.
Just now, why didn't you kill me?
I told you - I don't know where your loyalties lie.
See, I want to pick up where I left off
and having you by my side...
No, no, this is more than just political manoeuvring.
I make you weak.
I make you vulnerable.
Says the man in the cage.
Still walking and talking and making it look like you can't finish the job.
Not for want of trying.
But you always manage to fudge it somehow. Why is that?
Just kill me!
Get it over with.
Hey, you know...
..people are starting to talk.
I want you to be ugly!
I want you to be corrupt!
There's this vein of...decency in you. I want to stamp on it with my boot!
You want to look in the mirror.
Everyone has weaknesses, Mitchell...
..Loyalties that put them in jeopardy.
Thank God! You got my message?
That was you?
Lia, what's going on?
Where are we?
Sorry, the signal's really weak.
Oh, OK, there we go.
Oh, gosh. We're too late - it's starting.
I've been there.
They have these...these... They're like dog fights.
What do we do?
We can't do anything.
Well, of course we can! I know where they are. We just have to go.
The people that did this, they don't... Well, this is their endgame. This is how it happens.
No, the prophecy says he's going to be killed by a werewolf, right?
So... so, where is it?
On its way, I guess.
-First, I get rid of all the werewolves.
I've made a start on that already.
Then it's the ghosts...like Annie.
Do what you want.
Killing those people on that train...
Do you think me, her and George are going to be eating a pizza in front of The Real Hustle now that's out?
-I'm going to stop you there, because we both know you'd say anything to get out.
You've know me 90 years and finally you get it. What the hell have we just been talking about?
It's all about expediency with me - it's skin-deep.
The vampires were pissing me off, so I threw my lot in with humanity.
They betray me, and I get on that train
and I'm washing bits of humanity out of my hair for a fortnight.
So what do I do?
I get the fuck out of Dodge, that's what I do.
I'll do whatever it takes to survive, Herrick.
And right now, the only way for me to stay alive is by siding with you.
Completely and 100%?
I doubt it.
Until then, I'll be your poster boy, your vice president.
Whatever you want, I'll do it.
You'll be the villain now?
I always was.
There will come a day when one of us finally kills the other.
But it won't be today.
Bring him in!
GRUNTING AND GROANING
Good to finally meet you again properly, George.
I've not been myself the last few weeks.
Sorry about these two - it's clearly dress-down Friday.
He's him again, isn't he?
-George is the one who's going to kill him!
-I know! It's actually going to happen. What are the chances?
I mean, these are werewolves we're talking about, not Australian barmen.
They're really rare.
-Stop this. Please.
I'm not going to just stand here and watch Mitchell be torn apart.
You know your timing's a bit off?
There's no full moon for weeks.
This is a spin on the usual game.
So you want us to fight, is that it?
I want to make sure you're back in black.
-What's he talking about, Mitchell?
-George won't fight me.
This is your argument.
This is your vendetta.
No, you're right.
He needs a little motivation.
George, did you know you've been living with a celebrity the last few weeks?
Oh, it's, er, not me.
You're so sweet.
No, Mitchell is the killer of the Box Tunnel 20.
Right, well, that's not the response I expected.
Oh, wait a minute... You knew!
Oh, well, thanks, everyone, for pissing on my parade.
Me and the boys wanted a fight.
There's popcorn, and at half-time, we were going to have a Nespresso.
Oh, fine. Well, be like that. I'll just have to think of something else to get you going.
Lia, what's going on?
You told me that I had to come straight here, th-that Mitchell was in danger.
I made it up.
You made it up?
On the spot. I just wanted to screw with Mitchell's head.
"The wolf-shaped bullet." LAUGHS
Well, I wanted to drive a wedge between him and George and Nina.
But instead of getting suspicious of them,
he got all worked up about the other two - Tom and...
What was it - McIntyre, McIntosh?
Oh, Annie. You didn't really believe it, did you?
I can't control people.
I can't see the future.
You've been watching too much TV.
If there's no prophecy, then...
..why is this happening?
Well, what you really need to worry about is the self-fulfilling prophecy.
He made it come true.
There is a wolf-shaped bullet
that he carved his name on.
So, erm... Mitchell wanted to get me back to my old self.
-Long story. Don't ask.
So he's been trying to make me drink blood again.
You know that policewoman who came to the house? He actually brought her up to the attic.
He was like, "Dig in."
Yeah, but then I stopped you...
Anyway, eventually, I did. I had a jolly good munch.
And do you know the first thing I did?
Oh, no, hang on. Before that, I killed McNair.
I'm getting this story in completely the wrong order!
The first thing I did after...
..I killed Nina.
No. You're...you're lying.
Pale blue top, little twigs in her hair.
At least, I think I killed her. I stabbed her in the kidneys. Usually does the trick.
SCREAMS: No! No, no, no! No! No!
It hurts, doesn't it?
Mitchell brought me back.
He lit the fuse,
he walked away.
And it was...bye-bye, Nina.
this is what he wants.
He killed all those people, George. He made you complicit.
Everything he touches... he corrupts or destroys.
First you, now Nina!
You let me help you, you fucking liar!
George, I'm sorry. George!
George, I'm sorry. George, I'm so sorry. Please.
It's you. You're the one who's going to kill me.
Anthony Michael McNair...
..murdered by a vampire, avenged by his son.
Tom! Leave him alone. Don't touch him.
-If you do, I kill George.
-You wouldn't. He's your friend.
He killed McNair.
He's one of your own, Tom. Don't let this happen.
Herrick! Unlock the cage.
Kill him, Mitchell. Do it now.
Wow, that famous Herrick brain clearly ain't working at full speed yet, is it?
Listen to me - he ripped your head off and cancelled the revolution,
so you're going to have to kill him yourself. But do it publicly.
Make a statement.
All right, go and get my car. I'm right behind you.
Be seeing you, George.
All right, listen to me.
I swear I'm going to kill him. I just need to find out something first.
-Listen, I know what you've been through.
You killed my Nina.
And you killed...
all those people.
You don't say my name now.
You don't even look at me now.
You are not my friend.
You'd better go. Your boss is waiting.
So, if this was all just a lie,
a mind game,
why did you get me over here?
Don't get me wrong, I wanted him to suffer.
And that's where you come in.
Keeping you here, depriving him of you,
that will be his punishment.
Why didn't you just keep me here, when you had the chance?
He didn't love you enough.
It wouldn't have hurt him enough.
I was the weapon.
-Now she gets it.
-What, now you're just going to keep me here like a hostage?
Just give me a chance. I've got a lot of very commendable qualities.
I'm chatty, but also a good listener...
This is all just one big game to you, isn't it?
This wasn't a game! This is revenge!
He killed me.
Let me tell you something about revenge -
it isn't petulant or being a sore loser.
Fuck you! This is what needs to happen!
Revenge is about setting the world straight again.
It didn't work, though, did it?
Well, I've still got you and I've still got him grief-stricken without you.
I don't know who that man is...
..but I doubt you'll get much in the way of grief-stricken from him.
This was my bedroom, you know.
I'd come back here on holiday from college.
My parents would make such a big fuss.
My mum literally could not bear the sight of somebody not eating.
This house is very quiet now,
since I died.
My dad comes in here sometimes, lays on the bed.
My brother's getting into lots of fights at school.
This was all for them. Can you not understand that?
What the hell?
I was going to spend eternity in a prison cell with Mitchell.
I might as well spend it here with you.
Besides, when Nina gets here, I want her to see a friendly face.
You know, I think we'd be great friends, us three.
All the murdered girls, hmm?
Besides, we'll have to watch George.
Yeah, on that.
Talk about your parents' grief,
we'll have to watch George now that he's lost Nina,
now that he's lost the baby,
now that he's lost me.
-Well, I don't know if...
-Well, I want you to watch, Lia.
Watch him turn hard, cold, mean.
They're like your comrades, George and Nina.
The last victims of the Box Tunnel 20 massacre.
Do you know what I think?
I think you are way out of your depth.
And don't get me wrong, you are...
But I've been doing this supernatural stuff a long time now, and trust me,
grief and revenge are not things to get drunk on.
You know, I think you wanted wild and biblical and "Rahhh!"
But... instead, you just woke up somewhere unfamiliar
with your underwear on back-to-front.
I wouldn't know how to...
How to what?
How to undo this.
Let me go back and let me see Nina.
No, it's too late.
she's not here yet, so she's not dead.
Lia, come on. This isn't you.
if you go, then...
..I won't know anybody here.
This is not the way to make friends and influence people, trust me.
Lia, they were gonna have a baby.
Oh, I thought we'd hug,
but not hugging would also work.
Revenge kind of sucks.
Somewhere here, there's a man called Gilbert.
Find him. Tell him Annie sent you.
He's...he's really nice.
-We're losing her.
Heart rate's come back to normal.
-You can't come in here.
-Is she OK?
Things are gonna be moving a lot faster now.
I've got sleeper cells all over Europe, America, Australia.
I just say the word, and it begins.
What are we doing here?
Listen, OK, I think it's about time that I explained the trick.
So, basically, if George had stuck a stake in me, then it was game over.
I mean, no-one...no-one comes back from that.
So I...I kind of got lucky with him just...just ripping my head off.
I don't want to know anymore.
But you've been searching for this for months.
And then I saw the look of contempt on my best friend's face.
And I realised that this has to stop.
Listen, it's OK. I understand.
You've just agreed to abet the decimation of mankind.
It's bound to put a man out of sorts.
-Let's... let's cross the border.
Find ourselves a nice English village.
I'll make some calls.
How does that sound?
If we like it, we can, um...we can make it our new capital city.
I want to show you something first.
You recruited me.
You led me into this...
And I know I've done some terrible things,
but I've seen some extraordinary things too.
I have more memories than I deserve, Herrick.
And that's because of you.
And so, in return, I want to give you this.
Look at this world.
How does it make you feel...
..knowing that soon, all this will be ours?
Don't you understand?
It always was.
-'Armed police! Open the door!'
-'Open the door now!'
'Open the door, we're coming in!'
'Put the weapon down!
-'Get down on your knees!'
-'Get down on your knees!'
'And we're clear.'
A nation exhales
as the killer of the Box Tunnel 20 is finally brought to justice.
In other words,
that was the sound of someone else doing your job.
My name is Edgar Wyndam,
and as of 26 seconds ago, you are all unemployed.
If you have a phone in your hand, or a piece of paper, or a file, put it down.
Make your way to the exit.
You will be searched on the way out.
And when your wives and husbands ask why you are back so early and so shamefaced,
you tell them this...
"Our superior officer disappeared.
"An arrest was made,
"but then the arresting officer and five more police
"were killed at the suspect's house, and then the suspect disappeared."
You tell your families...
"I am here because I failed."
Who the hell are you?
I'm from Head Office.
-I am the man from Del Monte!
I am the wrath of God.
Have you seen this?
"Neighbours described Jason Healey as a loner with a short temper,
"but even they were surprised to discover that he was the perpetrator of the Box Tunnel massacre."
Not half as surprised as he was, I bet.
Do you think Herrick is behind this?
-Well, it's what Mitchell said - vampires take care of their own.
I mean, they're invisible, but they've got everything covered.
I can't believe how quickly Nina's recovered.
Yeah, well, it's the one advantage to being a werewolf, I guess.
You don't survive shattered bones and major organ failure every month
-without toughening up a bit.
-You sure you got the dates right?
-Cos she is really starting to show.
Do you think we should try to find Mitchell?
I think we just have.
Mitchell, you do know that we can't go back to the way we were.
You know, the four of us. Friends...lovers...
You do understand that?
So, what do you want?
I want George to kill me.
Look, Mitchell, there is no prophecy. Lia made it up.
It doesn't matter. I'm going to kill again - we all know it.
Because I have to.
And because there's a part of me that wants to.
The vampire gene is stubborn.
It finds a way to thrive.
I need to be stopped in a way that I can't come back from.
-Why can't you, er, do it yourself, like Cara did?
-It has to be him.
It's the final piece of his story with me.
Vampires and their inscrutable bullshit!
You can't do it yourself because it won't provide enough anguish.
You've been killing for nearly a hundred years.
All this bloodshed and turmoil, it's become your currency.
Even...even suicide has to be some shared bloody trauma.
He has to kill me because he has to disown me.
You've all become corrupted by me, but George most of all.
He suspected more than any of you.
And so he had to choose between his love for me and his ethics.
And I let him choose me.
But there's something else, too. You saw that they set some guy up for the Box Tunnel murders?
-Herrick arranged that, didn't he?
-No, this is way out of Herrick's league.
-So who did?
-I don't know.
But whoever it was, it's a debt they're gonna want repaying.
You want me out of the picture.
Well, I thought you'd be all for it.
Except I'm the one, I'm the one
who'll be expected to pick up the pieces of you afterwards.
He's right about one thing.
He will kill again.
Are we actually thinking about doing this? I mean, he hasn't attacked us.
A bomb is still a bomb, even if it hasn't gone off yet.
Right, yeah, but doing...doing it now, with him like this?
That's... Well, that's murder.
So what do we do? We wait until he goes bad again?
-I don't understand. You were ready to kill him in the cage.
-I thought Nina was dead.
So what, we just let him go...hmm?
Oh, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what to think...
If we're not entirely sure, then we don't do anything. Anything.
We, um...we exile him, or something.
We tell him it's over. We can't see him again.
He's dead to us. Deader.
Letting him go is still a decision.
It might be the right decision,
but it is definitely still a decision, and if we do, fine.
But there will be consequences.
If he kills again...
It's because we let him leave this house.
-Proper dead. I killed him.
What do you see when you look at me?
I want to pull your spine out through your mouth.
-What's happened to you?
So who am I talking to?
What if you ran away
I'd kill people in Scotland.
What if we kept you in the attic?
Our success rate there is less than 100%.
What if I forgave you?
That's not your right.
-I didn't hurt anyone you know.
But you made me complicit.
-Suppose I kill Nina and the baby.
-Don't say stuff like that.
-I get somebody else to forgive me. Would that be OK with you?
-So ask a victim's relative to do this.
Their souls don't need saving.
You're trying to save my soul?
It's been compromised.
What you are asking me to do...
George Sands saves the world.
Yeah, that was never one of my ambitions.
Yeah, well, I wanted to own a pub, but this is where we're at.
I used you, George.
I used our friendship. I hid in it.
It's nothing personal, but it was a means to an end.
Right. OK, yeah. No, I can...
Yeah, I can see what you're trying to do, but it won't work.
Poor, little, lost werewolf. It made me feel better about myself.
Oh, is that right?
You didn't ever wonder why someone like me would be friends with someone like you?
-Someone like you?
-Yeah. Smart, savvy, looking like this.
Right, whereas I was...
Pathetic. Shambolic. Needy.
But there you were, hanging out with the cool kids.
No wonder you were willing to forgive and forget a few murders.
You know what? Even I found that kind of disgusting.
This...will not work.
You looked the other way. You gave me alibi after alibi.
You betrayed humanity, George, just to have somebody to live with.
Do you really want me to believe this?
When I got on that train,
you might as well have come along and held my coat.
Do you really, really want me to believe this?!
No, of course not.
Oh, please, George. God, I can see their faces.
Not just the people I've killed, but the people I'm going to kill.
I'm so scared.
I want to tear my eyes out!
There's gonna be another train next time.
Oh, Jesus, or a school.
It's all so inevitable.
Please, George. Please, you need to stop me.
And if you can't do it for me, you have to do it for them. Please.
Is this really happening?
This is a good thing you're doing.
That stuff I just said, it's not true.
Remember, once I told you that anything that happened
would have happened a lot sooner and a lot worse
if it wasn't for you two.
Look after him.
And look after the baby.
I guess I'm finally doing the decent thing.
Then this is what we'll remember.
You were the love...of my long life.
And you were the love of mine.
All of you.
You made me human.
Let's do this.
-One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, knock on the door.
Five, six, put down sticks!
Who the hell are you?
Tell them, John.
His name's Wyndam.
He's one of the Old Ones.
How did you get in here? We didn't invite you in.
You don't get to be a thousand years old without learning a trick or two.
As if humanity's imbecilic governance wasn't bad enough,
Mitchell here almost blurts out our existence.
And so...we are taking control of the situation.
Oh. Again with the world domination.
Do you know Herrick's already tried that twice, and we've stopped him...twice?
You're comparing me to Herrick?!
He doesn't mean it, Wyndam.
He doesn't know who you are.
This is what is going to happen.
Mitchell, you're coming with me.
I think you're gonna come in useful one day,
so this...martyrdom isn't an option.
No. No, please, I don't want that.
This...this has to be the end.
You're going to dance for me. You are going to kill and rampage.
You are going to be my attack dog.
And the day that you say no
is the day that I crucify George and Nina.
In Regent's Park.
What about the rest of you?
What about... Annie?
Now, I think you're more powerful than you imagine, so I'm going to keep you around.
Besides, there are going to be a lot more ghosts soon.
And then, there are the history makers.
A werewolf impregnated by another werewolf.
We've never seen the like. The others want you culled.
I'm the curious type.
I want to see exactly what it is that's going to pop out.
But there's something I want you to do in return.
I want you to pass on a message to every werewolf,
every vampire that you meet.
You tell them the world is under new management now. It is year dot.
You tell them this.
The age of the vampires has begun.
I'm doing this because I love you.
I think you've got a fight on your hands.
