Back in the present day, Dr. Bauer isn't doing too well after injecting herself with Elena's wolf blood. While she's both fascinated and aroused by the pain of her impending transformation, her mind seems unable to handle this shocking turn of events.
Meanwhile, Aleister continues his seduction of Savannah to the dark side. He encourages her to use her powers to put her attendant to sleep without a talisman ... which she does, with a little unknown help from her mentor.
In another part of the compound, Rachel experiences what we've previously heard referred to as 'The Gentling.' It's Aleister's Clockwork Orange-ish brainwashing technique that turns you into an Aleister Goon.
Aleister was adopted by the ultra-religious Ashmonts, who were convinced Aleister had the devil in him. Mr. Ashmont thought he could whip it out of him with a belt buckle labeled with the word 'Faith.'
Dr. Bauer changes back, though her mind is now completely gone. Aleister mercy-kills her in the same way he murdered his adopted father -- by making her bleed out in the most gruesome way possible. One final bit of beautiful pain.
Ruth and Jeremy pay a visit to Clara Sullivan, a former witch whom Ruth stripped of her powers after she went wicked (probably one of those "other enemies" Ruth mentioned earlier). Ruth takes Clara's hand to scan her memories ...
Paige reveals to Clay and Nick that someone has broken The Commandment and given birth to a male witch. The "girl babies only" thing with witches isn’t biological, it’s a rule due to The Prophecy of the Tribulation, which says that a male child born to a witch will bring about their downfall.
Aleister mixes Savannah's super-powered blood with Elena's blood, and the results finally delight him. "Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead," he quotes villainously. (That's from The Wizard of Oz, by the way.)
Based on the details given by Elena, Nick and Jeremy figure she could be in one of two possible locations ... which are 150 miles apart. The team splits up to investigate both locations, after which Jeremy tells Ruth that he's going to tell Paige the truth: that Aleister is Ruth's son!
