S2Ep19 2

But...but you promised!

Seconds after Vordenberg announces his new law, Laura tries, unsuccessfully, to convince him that he cannot detain people on the basis that they are vampires. Vordenberg points out that all the misfortune that has occurred at the school in recent days is the fault of the vampires, and cites his own family's situation as part of that misfortune. During this heated debate, Perry and LaFontaine hurriedly get J.P. out of the room.

S2Ep19 4

This is politics! Any promises I made were made to be broken!

Vordenberg goes on to point that Carmilla was seen recently feeding on freshman girls, with Laura attempting to defend her. Carmilla stops Laura in her tracks and declares that if Vordenberg wants a vampire to go on a rampage, then that's what he'll get.

S2Ep19 6

What went wrong?

The scene picks up some time later, with Vordenberg’s take over of the school, Laura has decided to only send her videos to those on her private list. She explains that after Carmilla left to go on a rampage, Vordenberg rallied the Summers and Zetas and sent them on a hunt across campus. He’s boosting their physical strength and abilities with a special brew enabling the students to face off with the vampires on equal terms.

S2Ep19 9

It's all my fault. Again.

On the more positive side of things, the sales to Corvae have stopped and their men seem to have fallen back from the school. Laura is interrupted by Vordenberg speaking over the intercom, with the man vowing to put an end to the recent vampire attacks that have occurred since his rise to Board Chair.

S2Ep19 12

Look on the bright side! No parasites!

Laura is conflicted over Carmilla and her recent actions, but is interrupted when Perry comes in and tells Laura that hunting teams have spotted a panther dragging a body across the North quad. Attempting to get Laura's mind off of the situation, she offers to make ice cream sundaes for Laura, but she turns her down, wanting to be alone.

S2Ep19 14

Okay, on second thoughts, parasites are probably easier to deal with than a dictatorship.

Laura leaves the room in despair, and soon afterwards, LaFontaine comes in with J.P., both looking for Laura. They pause when they see Perry, uncertain of what to do. J.P. tries to apologize to her, with Perry admitting the situation is not entirely his fault, and admits to LaFontaine’s that she’s not upset.
S2Ep19 15


Perry explains that feels out of place at Silas, with all the supernatural incidents going on. LaFontaine admits that they are also terrified of the current situation, and J.P. says his experience of being trapped in the library was similarly terrifying. LaFontaine admits they like to study things because by understanding it, it becomes less terrifying.

S2Ep19 18

Broody McEmoPants is injured for like the eighteenth time this week.

Adding onto the conversation, J.P. says that life is a scary experience, and inexplicable, but it’s better to be experiencing life with others, even if it just means that you're terrified together. The trio have a group hug and decide to have some ice cream together.

S2Ep19 19

...And Here We Go Again...

Much later, after the others have left, Laura is back recording for the camera. During her talk, the door is kicked open, startling her. Mattie stumbles into the room, carrying an injured Carmilla.
