Hoyt and Jessica are currently living together. Hoyt comes home from work and gets angry at Jessica for not cooking him dinner. After an explosive argument, they eventually make up. Later, Hoyt brings Jessica to Fangtasia for a date night. Unknowing that his fiancee is eyeing a fangbanger. ("She's Not There")
Later, as they are leaving, they are harassed by a group of anti-Vampire protesters. Hoyt attempts to make them see reason by explaining to them that he loves Jessica because of who she is, and derides them for having so much hate in their hearts yet claiming to be good Christians, saying a good Christian has the ability to love. This leads to a fight between Hoyt and several of the protesters, during which he is bruised and bloodied. After they return home, Jessica attempts to heal him with her blood, but Hoyt refuses, as he is afraid of becoming addicted to V, and unintentionally offends her, leading her to leave in a fury. ("You Smell Like Dinner")
She returns many hours later, to find Hoyt watching TV and holding a very old and creepy porcelain doll. He angrily expresses how worried he was about her, believing it to be a dangerous time for Vampires, citing how his own mother had tried to shoot her. When she tells him they need to talk, he changes the subject to talk about the doll, which he is clearly disturbed by, and which he had just found in their bed. They realize that the doll has been mysteriously reappearing despite their attempts to get rid of it, as Hoyt had previously thrown it in the town dump and Jessica had thrown it in the lake. Hoyt concludes that someone is messing with them. Jessica then confesses that she had just been feeding off of a fangbanger at Fangtasia. This greatly upsets and hurts the already touchy Hoyt, even though Jessica reveals she didn't sleep with the fangbanger. She attempts to rationalize her behavior by saying that Hoyt looks at other women, which enrages Hoyt, as he says that "other women don't even exist for [him]". Jessica then begins to glamour him, but he realizes it and attempts to leave. However, Jessica manages to intercept him and when he looks her in the eye, she is able to glamour him into forgetting what she had done. ("If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'?")
Later, they are out driving and come upon a desperately injured Jason lying in the road. Jessica immediately feeds Jason her blood as Hoyt watches. ("I'm Alive and on Fire")
The same night, Hoyt and Jessica are watching over Jason when Hoyt decides to stay with him. Later Jason has a sexual dream about Jessica and Hoyt is in it accusing Jason of stealing his girlfriend. ("Me and the Devil")
Hoyt visits Jason to check up on him, concerned over how Jason is recovering after his captivity and rape at the hands of the residents of Hotshot. Jason avoids the subject, and Hoyt brings up his deteriorating relationship with Jessica. He says that he can feel Jessica "slipping away" and believes that losing her might kill him.
Jessica has a dream about breaking up with Hoyt while killing him in the process. She envisions that Hoyt is heartbroken. The reality is different when Jessica finally comes home to Hoyt. Hoyt asks her what is wrong and she tells him she really loves him but she thinks they made a mistake moving in together; they moved too fast and should spend some time apart. She tells him that she thinks being a vampire makes her unsuitable for a monogamous relationship. He gets really upset and tells her that he deserves someone better; someone who can have children and will not be a virgin her whole life. Jessica starts crying and he tells her to get out. He rescinds his invitation to her and as she is cast out of the house he says that maybe god does hate fangs. ("Spellbound")
Hoyt wakes with his alarm beeping. It's obvious he has been drinking and his home is in disarray. He sits on the sofa and picks up a Taylor Swift CD. He tosses it in a box of Jessica's belongings that is labeled "For you monster". Hoyt gets a visit from a gun-wielding Lafayette, possessed by the ghost of Mavis. She is carrying Mikey Bellefleur. She recognizes Hoyt's house as previously hers, and forces him out at gunpoint. Hoyt calls Jason for help and he arrives promptly. Jesus Velasquez manages to diffuse the situation by reasoning with Mavis and helping her spirit to move on into the afterlife.
Jason remains at Hoyt’s house, helping him to fix his door. Jason tells Hoyt they witnessed a miracle tonight. Jason picks up the Taylor Swift CD and teases Hoyt for having it. Hoyt explains that it belongs to Jessica and asks Jason to take her the box of her possessions. Jason does as asked but is unable to resist temptation and has sex with Jessica. ("Let's Get Out of Here")
Hoyt visits Jason and talks about how the house is empty without Jessica. He says that he can still smell her perfume in his house. Hoyt is crying, saying that he still waits to see Jessica crawl out of her cubby. He asks if he can crash with Jason for a little while and Jason says yes. ("Burning Down the House")
Jason goes to Hoyt to confess having an affair with Jessica. Hoyt violently beats him to the ground and tells him that there's something missing inside him. He walks away while Jason mutters that he's sorry. ("And When I Die")
