When he beings to realize that Laura's suspicions about Sarah Jane's in personality might be valid he volunteers his help. He also offers his help to Will to protect Laura, without fully understanding what he was offering himself up for.

Later Laura asks for Kirsch and tells him of Will being a vampire, but he does not believe it. He then mentions that if Will was a vampire, he's a bro first. Despite this, Will does not feel the same as Will knocks him out to be taken as a sacrifice. He is later rescued by Laura, Carmilla, the Zetas & Summers. After the victory over the Dean, he seems to become friends with Danny and then later finds Carmilla's body.
When Laura, Carmilla, LaFontaine & Perry returns to Silas, the Zetas & Summers are back to their usual, fighting each other.

He reunites with Danny who takes him and Vordenberg back to the Dean's home, where she reveals that the Summers, she was meeting with were dead and blames Mattie. When Vordenberg reveals that the anglerfish is going to be killed, despite already promising that he wouldn't, Kirsch is possessed where he sends a message to everyone from the anglerfish before he faints. He is barely conscious when a fight breaks out which leads to Mattie's death and Carmilla angrily leaving them.
Kirsch then works with them and is part of the army to face off with Vordenberg's forces. During the battle he is wounded, and is forced to retreat.
