Sheema returns to the secret headquarters of the Resistance, where Campbell is trying to rile up his followers to take action against the vampires. In fact, they should strike First National Bank, where all the weapons and blades have been stashed!
Vanessa's not going to wait to find out, as she's set a fire to set off the fire alarm, the perfect diversion to allow her to get out of there and start looking for her daughter, Dylan. Mohamad meets her at the door and convinces her to let him go with her so he can look for his sister, after which he provides the proper code to open the locking mechanism.
Axel's ready to go after Vanessa, but Doc convinces him that priority is to find out who killed Cynthia. Axel first tries to get a reading on Sam, to whom he gives a goodbye note left by Mohamad. Sam, in the first words we've heard him speak, admits that he's scared. Axel admits that he is, too.
In the cafeteria, Axel breaks the news to everyone that Cynthia was murdered, after which everyone starts accusing everyone else, with the non-present Mohamad ultimately emerging as the number-one suspect. This doesn't sit well with Sam and he gets in John's face, which is rather terrifying.
Afterwards, Flesh meets up with Sam for dishes duty, during which Flesh describes what it's like to become a vampire. It doesn't sound too bad, especially the part involving senses being heightened and old injuries being cured. Sam, who can neither hear nor speak (very well, anyway), is intrigued.
As they prepare to leave, Vanessa unpacks her old 12-gauge (a gift from her Second Amendment-loving ex-husband) … and notices small bloody footprints on the floor, leading to the front door. Dylan got out!
Vanessa makes short work of them and succumbs to her maternal instincts when she sees that one of the survivors is a little girl named Callie. Vanessa assures them that she'll take them all to the hospital and safety … a plan that doesn't exactly thrill Mohamad.
Julius gives the order to capture her so she can be taken to Dmitri, though Julius' mama, a vampire herself, tells him to keep Vanessa for himself and use her to reclaim his rightful place in the vampire hierarchy. Julius ponders this as he feasts on delicious blood and guts.
Meanwhile, Vanessa and Mohamad are preparing to take the survivors to the hospital when they hear vampires signaling each other, planning an attack. Vanessa tells Mohamad to get the humans to safety while she stays behind to face the bloodsuckers herself.
