WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
A big dramatic start for everyone this week as we check in with everyone not named Van Helsing. We start with Julius and Flesh, as the former waits impatiently in the morgue. His wait isn't fruitless, though, as Flesh does finally wake up, thus proving that they are probably pretty much immortal.
Doc and Jolene also get a surprise, though theirs is much less welcome. While they are out and about minding their own business, they are jumped by security officers and Jolene is arrested. They are told it's because she has been distributing fliers claiming the vaccine has deadly side effects, but she says it wasn't her.
Back in Denver, Doc discovers that the Powers That Be in the city are fully aware that Jolene wasn't the one distributing the fliers. It was one of her patients who she had told about the side effects. They've locked her up in order to compel Doc to help fix the repellent, which she agrees to with demands: a gene sequencer and a vampire.
Out on the road, Axel has to take on a brand new role: that of midwife, and this baby is not coming easily. It's actually coming sideways, and despite his best efforts he isn't able to turn her. After a fair amount of begging from the mother, he defaults to a crash c-section in the field which saves the baby, but not the mother.
Now that Flesh is no longer dead, he and Julius are taking some gambles of the heart. Flesh heads to the records office to find out where his wife might be, while Julius successfully asks out his boss, Frankie. While Julius and Frankie decide to stay in, Flesh learns that his wife is in a place called Loveland, a prison colony from which there is no return.
Axel manages to get the surviving members of his party to Denver unscathed, but the security officers in the city refuse to listen to their warnings about the daywalkers. Which is a bummer because there is an army of them on their way in.
Unwilling to leave his wife languishing on a prison colony, Flesh inquires about how he can get to Loveland. Surprise surprise, he can't, not without committing a heinous crime. Good thing he's got a gun and absolutely no scruples.
It’s probably not a bad idea to get the hell out of dodge anyway, since Denver is about to have some nasty visitors. The Sisterhood has arrived and they are hungry. They turn all the guards, then set about attacking everyone else, turning the strong, and keeping the rest for food. Barry manages to keep the baby safe and they escape in the chaos.
Turns out Doc never had any intention of helping fix the serum. She wanted the gene sequencer in order to learn more about the blood Scarlett gave her. The vampire may have served some purpose, but ultimately she just ends up using it to kill the doctor holding her hostage, steal her key card, and head off to save Jolene, who has, sadly, been shipped off to Loveland herself.
Speaking of the fruitless attempt to rescue lovers, as the daywalkers ravage the city, Julius attempts to make a break for it with Frankie. They quickly run into Scab, though, who harbors some serious ill will toward his former boss. Julius and Frankie nearly make it to the exit before Scab jumps them and Julius is powerless to stop him as he murders Frankie.
