One night, Van Helsing gathers the rest of the men and applies a plaster made from consecrated hosts over Lucy's crypt while she's out feeding. The men wait for her until she comes come back with another child victim. Upon seeing Arthur, Lucy changes her tone to that of a seductress, beckoning him to join her so they can be a couple in the afterlife. Her hypnotic spell almost works until Van Helsing desperately brandishes a pectoral cross at her, and she is repelled. She flees back to her crypt, but is unable to enter until Van Helsing removes some of the plaster. Immediately, the men are astonished to see Lucy use her new supernatural powers to slip inside effortlessly. They prise open the door and find Lucy seemingly at rest in her coffin. Van Helsing explains that everyone bitten by the vampire becomes a vampire in turn, but if a vampire is killed, the victim is saved. Lucy is staked by her fiancé Holmwood.
