After leaving for some time, Sarah comes back to see Ethan, and is ready to start another semester. Sarah is adjusting to being a fully-fledged vampire, and learning to play by the rules of Whitechapel's Vampire Council. Meanwhile Ethan refuses to give up on his dreams of curing vampirism. However, the gang discovers that they have a new mysterious enemy determined to frame our 'heroes'.
Two vampires are seen standing around Ethan's house presumbly waiting for Sarah. However while waiting a green mist arrives and posseses one of the vampires causing him to attack the other one. Meanwhile while in his room Ethan gets a call from Erica who is excited because she heard that "Dusk" star Dirk Baddison would appearing in town.But Ethan admits that he started the fake rumor in hopes of it bringing Sarah back. After talking to Erica while looking out his window Sarah appears. She seems to be happy even though she is a full vampire. And when Ethan says he is still looking for a cure she states that she has accepted being a vampire and then leaves. The next day while in school Ethan and Benny are surprised to see a happy and cheerful Sarah with Erica. Later they are even more surprised to see Dirk Baddison at the school. Erica is thrilled though and eventually "kidnaps" him. While at school two vampires who were sent by the vampire council inform Sarah of recent vampire killings and that they assume that it is Ethan. Sarah tells them to leave him and her friends alone then leaves. After she leaves the vampires go look for Ethan. Sarah calls Ethan and warns him of the vampires but he is then confronted by them. When he finds out they are real he threatens them but the green mist arrives. The mist takes over one of the vampires and he attacks the other one and both are destroyed just as Sarah arrives. Later Sarah tells Benny and Rory of whats happening and while talking they find Ethan hiding in a locker. When Ethan says that the mist smelt like evil Benny makes him smell different things with sulfer coming up closest. Later Benny finds out that the mist is a spell called "The Breath of Death" which destroys a specific target,in this case vampires. After finding out what the mist is they make Rory put some of his items in a can so they can lure the mist to them and get rid of it. Erica calls Ethan and tells him that the council has put Sarah on trial and that she (and Dirk) are being taken to a hearing. Ethan,Benny,and Rory arrive later and they tell the council of the spell. However one council member Anastasia wants them destroyed and while they are voting the mist appears and takes over one of the council members who tries to attack Anastasia. While Ethan is luring the mist toward him he accidently drops the can causing the stuff to fall on to him. When this happens the mist takes over him and he attacks Sarah. Benny is able to get the items back into the can and captures the mist. After realizing they're mistake the council allows them to leave. Later while babysitting Jane, Sarah and Ethan see Dirk on the news saying vampires are real and tries to show them pictures of him and Erica, but since vampires don't show up on camera the pictures only have him in them. After seeing the news the episode ends with Sarah saying she is gonna stick around.
