We go back to see what the Governor has been up to since last season’s massacre, in what is the most depressing “What I did on my summer vacation” project ever.
Two couples are hanging out around a bonfire on the beach. They are singing, laughing, drinking... typical twentysomething stuff. One couple, Dan and Anna, go for a swim. Sarah goes for more beer for her and Jake. Hiding behind the foliage, spying, is youngest sister Ellie, a deaf girl with a huge crush on Jake.
New vampires come to town. Jayne kills two of them on the train; a third escapes. The third is Josef, who heads straight to Dracula’s manor. They are old friends.
Silas no longer wants to help Damon and the others bring back Bonnie. He just wants to kill Amara, bring down the veil, and kill himself so they can enjoy death together.
In 1919, a serial killer stalked the women of New Orleans. Dubbed the Axe Man - not just for his manner of killing but because he plays saxophone - he killed eight women and terrorized the city.
Kevin has had a little bit of luck translating the angel tablet. He has managed to translate it into an obscure dead language but can’t find anyone to translate that language. This means study time, so when Castiel calls Dean with a potential case (four people disappear, presumed dead), he is only too eager to head out to Idaho and follow up.
Marcel hosts a fight club in which the winner will be one step closer to joining his inner circle and gaining a daylight ring. A victor is crowned, but Klaus interrupts the match by breaking her neck.
Ichabod heads over to a meeting with the Freemasons. He promises Abbie he will insist they include her in their normally men-only club, so she meets him there. By the time they arrive, they find the four Freemasons, dead and headless, and watch as the Horseman rides off with a fistful of heads.
The sick are getting sicker and the fence is getting weaker… it all comes to a head tonight.
Hank and Nick are called in on an icky case: a guy named Ned Klosterman is found dead, in a tree. His stomach exploded and rained down, leaving a cartoonish hole through his torso.
