Kevin doesnít trust Jack, and it infuriates him that Jack is trying to convince Livvie to not be mad at him for looking out for her. Lucy knows what that means to him, but sheís preoccupied by whatís on the website. As he starts to rant again, she tells him that there are two kinds of vampires. Good and bad, the only difference being how they use their powers. Kevin canít believe what sheís saying. There is no such thing as vampires. Lucy asks him if heís absolutely sure.

Kevin asks Lucy if she thinks Jack is some sort ofÖ. He canít say it, and Lucy tells him to just say it. Heís still angry, and he wants to know if everyone is going crazy around him.

Jackís in the woods, heís hit by a bullet, but nothing happens to him, because what really happened to Jack was Caleb.

Before he can say anything, they hear a door slam. Yelling Livvieís name, they run up the stairs together.
