There they share and express their love for each other. They set out to discover the significance behind the pendant. Selene recalls seeing it as a child.

Markus became a vampire after being bitten by bats. His twin, William, became a werewolf after wolves attacked him. Selene and Michael seek out Lorenz Macaro who is really Alexander Corvinus. Alexander tells them he has devoted his entire life to stopping the Vampire-Lycan War, but refuses to assist in killing his sons. Markus subsequently impales Michael on a pole.
