A uniformed Herrick slaughters Mitchell's police captors before putting him into a cage and bringing in George, whom Herrick hopes will kill Mitchell after being told that Nina has been; however, they are saved by the arrival of Tom, who escapes with George whilst Mitchell kills off Herrick for good. Annie is lured into purgatory by Lia, who tells that she lied to Mitchell about his being killed by a werewolf to scare him but that he believes her prophesy will come true. Sensing that Annie now despises Mitchell, Lia lets Annie go and she is able to help bring Nina back to life. Mitchell returns to the house, begging George to put a stake through him before he kills any more people, but they are interrupted by Edgar Wyndam, a representative of the 'old' vampires, who has his own plans for Mitchell. Which one of them will George finally send on his way? Written by don @ minifie-1

What a disappointment

What a disappointing end to a great series. It was more like an episode of 'Days of Our Lives', shallow, unstructured and has completely lost the plot. Mitchell made the show, the only character with real depth. The others a a little too quirky to hold my interest. With him gone I believe the show will lose any real credibility to those who crave more than tears and sensitivity. Watching Nina and George is akin to something out of Eastenders, there is just no extra dimension to their characters. Annie is interesting from an irritating point of view. She adds something with her extreme naivety, but only in combination with the dark intensity of Mitchell. I will definitely give season 4 a miss based on the low quality of execution of season 3.
