[Love Will Have Its Sacrifices opening theme] [Shrieking. Roaring. Tearing. Crunching. Not so useless anymore, eh?] Carmilla… What does she think she’s doing? The technical term is “mauling.” She’s headed for the crater. She’s going to drink the godsblood. She not going to make it. Look they’re driving her back. She will make it eventually. Question is, who will she come after if she does? The Baron? Or us? How weird is it that we’re back to wondering whether Carmilla wants to save you or kill you again? LaFontaine, don’t- Don’t what, point out that Laura’s been lying around in the siege pining after her vampire lover? I am not. You totally are. You’re the piniest pine who ever pined. [SNN Intro theme, the Under Siege edition] So, it has been brought to my attention that there has been some- moping. And lying around feeling guilty. Which even if completely justified- does not help anything. And so- Silas University, welcome to La Resistance! Our top story? Lord Vordie-mort is lying to you. In addition to the ongoing arrests of any non-human students- and attempting to break into this building with battering rams to muzzle the free press- we are also receiving reports that Vordenberg’s goons are chopping down trees in the Tief Urwald in their hunt for Carmilla- who today made another bid for the Lustig In other news… Nothing! Nothing on Vordenberg, nothing on Corvae, nothing on the Seven Gates except for the fact people believe there’s an entrance to hell in Southern Pennsylvania, which so does not help us in Austria. How are we supposed to make a plan to save ourselves with nothing? Hey- What about the minutes of the Board Meetings in 1904? 1904? As in “That-time-the-campusburned- down” 1904? Yeah. Well what’s in them? Roll call. Ah, Belmonde. The Baron’s- Dad? Uh, the Hasturmenchen- who seem to be some kind of evil monks? Um, that Owl lady doing her prescient and unnerving schtick. Vordenberg Senior talking about a fishing trip… Here- it looks like some students noticed the pattern of missing girls and rioted… I wonder if J.P. remembers that? Jeep was still trapped in the library catalogue which in 1904 was handwritten. He says it was a dark time. Oh, this is interesting. It looks like the Dean put forward a motion to try to kill the Anglerfish. What? And the Board overruled her. They didn’t want to risk it. That makes no sense- The Dean was down with
the fish love. Not all, “we going to need a bigger boat.” Well, maybe she was only sacrificing people to keep the Beast asleep… because the Board wouldn’t let her kill it. Well, it is a little weird that the Dean wanted the Fish dead, and now it is dead. Hey. If the Dean was fighting the Board- maybe that’s why Mattie had all the files on how to kill the other Board Members? You’re a genius. I’d agree, but why am I a genius today? Because somewhere in these files is a way to stop Vordenberg. See that subscribe button? You should click it.
