Our episode begins with Miles having terrible dreams, which he realizes are the first psychic visions he has had in a long time. A vision of a strange man in a trench coat with a wolf’s head surrounded by blood-filled syringes shakes him awake to his room where Jacqueline Vermelho awaits asking him to come with her. When he refuses she shocks him with black lightning, awakening him a second time. This time the Mysterious Inuit Woman stands over his bed and stabs him with her spear. He wakes up for a final time coughing up blood.
The next day at school the body of a mauled student who turns out to be Dwayne Roberts is found in the girl’s locker room. After asking around a bit, the gang discovers that he hung out at a local arcade, Last Life.
At the arcade, the team asks about Dwayne who they find out goes by the moniker, D-Rob and was a master of the game Primal Rage. They also find out that he liked to hang out in the back alley. One of the arcade regulars, Jack Simms takes notice of the group and inquires as to why they are looking into D-Rob’s murder. Lauriel quickly explains that they are members of the school’s Crime Club. Jack agrees to aid them in their search for answers. They head to the city morgue where Jack demonstrates some excellent breaking and entering skills. They quickly find D-Rob’s body which has been horribly mauled. They also find tufts of fur on the body. Based on Miles’ vision, they begin to believe he was killed by a werewolf.
During their investigation, Miles is approached by the spirit of the deceased Dwayne. He is a bit shocked as this hadn’t happened to him in quite awhile. Dwayne explains that a wolf creature did indeed kill him after a man in a trench coat wearing a wolf mask beat him up. He also apparently owed money to Jack. Miles discovers that Jack has been selling drugs behind the arcade. He also knows about vampires. It seems that there is more to Mr. Simms than meets the eye.
The gang calls it a night and does some more research into werewolves and the victim. The next night they head to the arcade’s back alley to see what is going on. Soon they find another teen being attacked by a werewolf. The man in the trench coat appears to have just gotten done throttling him. Sally fires her bow while Neil fires his gun at the man in the coat. The man puts a bullet in Sally’s chest and takes off. The wolf turns on the group but Miles summons a gout of fire and burns the creature to a crisp. It seems the dark magic of the Tuurngait Soul Urn has left its mark on Miles. The gang rushes Sally to the home of Tobias Weyfield, the med student they had saved from murderous homonculi. He is able to treat Sally as the gang looks into this man in a trench coat and the wolf’s victim, Doug Jackson who turns out to be another arcade regular and regular customer of Jack’s.
They discover the license plate of the vehicle the man escaped in belonged to a Frederick Deacon, a former Detective for Valleyview PD. They discover that Detective Deacon was fired for his harsh treatment of drug dealers and users. They find out the Detective’s son had died from an overdose which led to his personal anti-drug vendetta that ultimately cost him his marriage and his career. One particular incident involved the son of former Mayor Leonard Groener, Alexander. Alexander died in Deacon’s custody from overdose and blunt force trauma. After his divorce and losing his job, he seemingly disappeared.
As they try to track down Deacon, Neil attempts to find out what is going on with Clarissa Aaron and discovers that she is being kept outside of town in a shack by her mother. He discovers that Clarissa is a werewolf and her mother is trying to cure her. Meanwhile, Juno helps track down Deacon who is staying in a cabin in the nearby woods. They find that he is keeping a group of werewolves in a shed at his cabin. They seem him approach the shed wearing the wolf mask. Miles blasts him back into his shed as the group closes in. Lauriel grabs Deacon and attempts to remove his mask, accidentally snapping his neck in the process. Horrified, Lauriel goes into shock as the episode ends.
