While seeking a break from their detective work, Sam and Twitch stumble onto a chaotic scene in a lounge that defies explanation. The bar patrons are fighting violently while appearing to be in a trance-like state. As they observe the situation, they witness someone kidnapping one of the girls. They give chase, lose the suspect, and find the girl in the alley with her throat ripped out. Later, while Spawn surveys the aftermath of the riot between the alley gangs and ponders Cogs lecture, he is attacked by a new adversary – a vampire!
