In our last adventure, after finding her lover dead, Su-mi calls Alfred to tell him what transpired and returns to her apartment to calm down and rest. Talking with her friend Jenny, she heard Jenny's boyfriend's sister has gone missing. She reassures Jenny she would ask around about the girl, and got a photo from Jenny's phone.
In search of more leads, Isabelle storms into the Blue Lady's court demanding answers about what is behind all these murders. The Blue Lady exasperatedly humors her, and tells her she doesn't care if the demons tear each other apart. Pressed further, she mentions Nephilac. Returning to Alfred with this news, Alfred already knows Nephilac as Fox's demon patron. He calls Junot and Su-mi to come over, and gets ready for a throw down.
Except as Junot is trying to leave his apartment, he's stopped by his neighbor Maria begging for his help. A drive-by shoot-out had happened nearby, and as the area's protector they wanted his help. The local residents were feeling scared and insecure. And she was worried about her son Danny and his friend Jose that they might be caught up in it since they did some gigs for the Cuban gang. He promised to help in a bit, but had obligations to attend to first.
With everyone assembled, they summon Fox to their location. They attack him and to their surprise, he offers no resistance and goes down quickly. Only mentioning as he's dying that the hearts were needed to stop something worse. Then for some reason, his demon patron resurrects him but he's in an injured, barely conscious state.
Alfred tries to get more info from his local hunter contact, John, on defeating Nephilac who didn't want to explain their methods (in cases needed against Alfred) but did mention some of the local demon hierarchy where Fox frequently keeps other, worse demons and abominations at bay. Alfred gives him a head's up that he's taken out Fox, so be ready for the fallout.
Junot stops by the corner store where the shootout took place on his way home. There were injured people and police. It seemed that it was the work of the local Haitian gang putting a hit on the Cuban gang but with all the commotion there weren't any clues that he could pick up with his senses, overwhelming them in trying. So he goes back home to rest, getting berated by his neighbor Maria on the way with her disappointment in him not doing more to help the neighborhood.
Isabelle asks around about the Dark Doctor who is known for his knowledge of dark rituals and creatures since he might be able to elaborate further on what Fox was talking about. Any info that might help Alfred. But no one was willing to talk about the Dark Doctor. In her travels, she runs into some Russian necromancers patching bodies together, and one who even seems to offer her a body to posess of a young woman whose age and body are similar to her own. She politely declines and heads back to Alfred.
As all this was going on, Su-Mi uses the time to further interrogate Fox when he awakens. She manages to get out of him that hearts of night, wild, humanity and power will be needed. Alicia was humanity. Chester was night. He himself could count as wild if killed. But that the ritual was one of banishment to keep at bay an even worse evil. One so great it was even scaring away the other supernaturals like the Summer Court fey. She pushes him harder on what the evil is, even going so far as to cut off his manhood but all he knew was that it was from another plane.
Su-Mi then went to visit her dancer friend Lily with the Summer Court, finding her in the midst of moving out of her apartment for the West Coast. Trying to press Lily for more info, the girl is afraid to speak openly but subtly confirms Fox's lead that the Summer Court is indeed leaving Miami.
Isabelle, Su-Mi and Alfred reconvene to discuss their findings and next moves when there is a knock at the door. Outside are several members of the local Haitian gang. Among them is a man with strange jewelry and tattoos who says, "So, I heard you were looking for me?"
