Brian is triumphant. "See? Problem solved!" He thinks that the hunters will move on now. "I did this to protect you," he says to Kate. Then, to Michael: "I did what you couldn't." Michael points out that they found the camera and will probably be able to trace the feed. "What the hell is wrong with you?" "Nothing's wrong with me -- you told me that," Brian reminds him. "I just finally figured out what I want and I'm going after it." All his stored-up resentment for his friend comes out. He's not going to live in Michael's shadow anymore, they're equals now, yada yada yada. Michael's concern is still for Brian's well-being. He tells Brian of the horror of their new reality, of how he remembers killing Scott and eating his delicious heart. "Ever since, I've been more out of control," he says. "You've been more weak," Brian corrects him. He grabs Kate and tries to make a play for her, but she's not remotely interested. When Brian won't let go of Kate, Michael brings out the fangs and goes after him. A growling, snarling fight ensues. Michael easily overpowers Brian, but Brian has that silver knife. He stabs Michael in the gut and Michael falls to the floor, coughing and gasping. Kate rushes to his side. "I love you, baby," he says. And that's the end of poor, sweet, golden god Michael.
Kate grabs the knife from his corpse and starts slashing at Brian. He grabs her wrist. "Kate! Listen to me. I love you," he says. "I love you! You'll understand. After I bite you, you'll understand." She runs from him, but he's much faster than he used to be. She screams as he lifts her off the ground and sinks his fangs into her shoulder.
Cut to Kate crying in the bathroom, looking at her reflection in the shattered mirror. She has a camera with her, of course, and films the wound as it heals. Brian pounds on the door. Kate loses her shit for a little while, knocking over the shower doors, breaking the sink with her bare hands. Suddenly, she calms down and even smiles a little. She picks up the camera. "Brian? I'm coming out. I see it now. I understand." She opens the door to find a very relieved Brian smiling back at her. She hands him the camera so he can film her wolfing out. She's not just showing off, though. She proceeds to tear into him with her new fangs. He falls to the floor. The camera catches his blood arcing through the air and splattering onto the walls. He screams in agony. Kate snarls.
