A flashback reveals Victor Frankenstein's motivation for delving into the questions of life and death. Flashbacks also show the history of Victor's "first-born". The Creature was born in a state of unending agony and Victor fled, rejecting his creation. It eventually came into contact with actor Vincent Brand who gives him a job working with the stage equipment and rigging at a theater. He has a very particular request for his maker - a female companion. After her experience at the séance, Vanessa continues to have a spiritual link with Mina who is desperate to be saved from the creatures around her. It leads them - Chandler, in need of money, joins them - to the London Zoo where they have an encounter with wolves, among other creatures.

[young Victor Frankenstein quotes a William Wordsworth poem when finding his dead dog as a child, narrating
'There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream / The earth, and every common sight / To me did seem, Apparell'd in celestial light / The glory and freshness of a dream / It is not now as it hath been of yore / Turn wheresoe'er I may / By night or day / The things which I have seen I now can see no more.'
