A couple park on a dark road overlooking the river and make out. A van pulls up nearby and someone runs past the parked car. The girl, Krissy, looks around nervously but her boyfriend Aidan assures her it's nothing. Someone runs past again and the trunk suddenly flies open. When Aidan tries to start the car, nothing happens. He gets out of the car and runs off, and a vampire shatters the window and yanks Krissy out of the car. Aidan comes up behind the vampire and decapitates him with a knife, and another girl, Josephine Barnes, runs up with a crossbow. Krissy tells them that the next time one of them can be the bait, and Aidan confirms that it's "him," and they have one down and two to go...
