The official details…

After a brief house-meeting the friends decide they need to start hanging out and being there for each other more than they have been lately, as the hit drama following the lives of three housemates who happen to be a werewolf, a ghost and a vampire continues.

George and Annie reflect on their past romances, whereas Mitchell has far more pressing matters to concern himself with.

Annie is feeling guilty for hurting Hugh – she’s convinced he deserves a “proper” girlfriend – so employs George to try and help Hugh get back together with his ex-girlfriend, Kirsty. Annie’s genius plan? For George to take Kirsty on the worst date ever… However, with Nina’s departure still weighing heavily on him George’s heart is not really in the operation, and the night takes an unusual turn.

Mitchell’s relationship with Lucy is becoming strained, particularly after the death of one of her patients, and when they do finally make it out on a date together it looks like Mitchell might ruin his chances by refusing to give away too much about himself.

Upon the discovery of two bodies with suspicious-looking injuries, Mitchell is forced to strike deals left, right and centre to cover up the shady murder. Somehow he must stop the vampires from killing.

But is Mitchell losing control of the situation? And elsewhere, are Nina’s new contacts who she thinks they are?
