The gang's running low on ammo, but luckily a handsome dude named Theo comes to the rescue with his sword and bow and arrow. What's even better is he tells them of a place called Eden, where they'll find food, medicine and sanctuary. Follow the hunk, weary travelers!
Eden is an old 'psychotherapy sanitarium' turned dubious utopia, run by an immediately suspicious guy named Micah. His second-in-command, Beth, doesn't want any strangers here, but Micah assures them they're welcome …
Apparently this signals the arrival of a vampire named Magdalena, with whom the Eden folk have a deal: provide her with jars of blood every now and then and she'll let them live in peace. What a bargain!
So where does Micah get this blood? Well, the thing is … well, wait, we're getting ahead of ourselves. First, Sam notices Mohamad's Nirvana shirt hanging with the laundry, which prompts him to follow a dude whom he thinks might be his missing friend.
Meanwhile, Flesh has been moping about and turns to Micah for spiritual guidance. Micah teaches him how to face his past to find strength to fight the future (or some such sort of New Age mumbo-jumbo).
Doc's not feeling it, though, as she's haunted by locking Axel in with Gorrman, basically abandoning him to die; when she confesses this to Vanessa, she doesn't let her off easy. In fact, Vanessa tells Doc that she's no longer welcome with the group after they leave Eden.
A baby … huh … wait a minute. There are a bunch of pregnant women in Eden, but where are all the kids? Micah spews some B.S. about how they deliver the babies to the Resistance in Seattle, but we know that's a crock — he gives them to Magdalena!
Vanessa and Theo stop Beth from handing over the latest bundle of joy to the scary vampire lady, which only stokes her vampire rage. What's even more disturbing is that Magdalena was Micah's wife during her human days … oh, unholy pact of darkness!
Wait, there's even more trouble in Eden. Sam escapes from the storage room and is reunited with Mohamad, though their affectionate embrace is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Xavier, the guy who locked up Sam. What's even more sudden is that Sam pulls a blade and PLUNGES IT INTO XAVIER'S CHEST.
Well, that was a nice visit and all, but it's time to hit the road! Actually, the gang will be leaving without Flesh, as he hopes to rebuild the Eden community without any corruption and unholy blood pacts.
Oh, Doc. So tortured, so sad. And now, so crazy, as she wanders the woods looking for Magdalena. It's Magdalena who finds her, and Doc begs her to turn her back into a vampire, as she believes she was never meant to be human again.
