The two first met when they were both guests at the home of the eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle (Simon Russell Beale) in “Séance.” Dorian continued to have a lot of naked woman at his home and has previously slept with Miss Brona Croft (Billie Piper). In “Demimonde,” Miss Ives stalked him on his way to the greenhouse. Eventually, they bonded over orchids and their “growing” relationship.
On the other hand, Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) continued to go into extreme lengths in finding the cure for Mina (Olivia Llewellyn). Now, Sir Malcolm also sought the help of doctor/vampire hunter extraordinaire Van Helsing to help Victor Frankenstein. Victor (Harry Treadaway) got really busy on working on Mina’s cure and was also forced by his “firstborn” to make the Creature (Rory Kinnear).
In “Resurrection,” they previously got Fenton (Olly Alexander) from the London Zoo with the help of Ethan’s werewolf form and Sembene (Danny Sapani). Little did they know, Fenton had been “seeing” his invisible master. Fenton’s vampire master went to the Murray mansion to find Vanessa, who has been used my Sir Malcolm as a pawn for Mina. A bout began between Sir Malcolm and Fenton’s master, but Fenton got staked in the end.
Elsewhere, Ethan (Josh Harnett) got caught amidst the complicated and entangled love fest in this episode. He accompanied Brona to watch a play that featured a beast and the woman who fell in love with the creature. The play didn’t have a happy ending and so was his relationship with the Irish prostitute. Brona got jealous over Ethan’s past and left him.
The episode ended with a bonding moment with Ethan and Dorian after watching a secret betting match over rats and dogs. Ethan almost lost his control until Dorian proposed to go into a bar. They sealed the night with a kiss.
