At Fort Bellefleur Violet sniffing out Adilyn, tracks her and Wade to the tree house and witnesses the two making out. Violet calls out for Adilyn and asks if they could talk. Being familiar with Violet, Adilyn is not worried. Violet shows amusement at the young lovers sneaking away from home, but reminds them that Adilyn is a fairy, and being out in the open at night makes them both sitting ducks for rabid Hep-V vampires. Adilyn replies that they will get in trouble if they return home, so Violet offers to take them to a secret place where they'll be safe from vampires and the prying eyes of their parents. They jump at the chance to be alone . Violet convinces them both to leave their cell phones so that Andy, the sheriff, cannot trace their location.
In "May Be the Last Time" Andy and Holly arrive at Fort Bellefleur in his police cruiser to find that there is no one there.

Andy calls Adilyn's cell phone, which begins to ring from the empty tree house. latter Violet enters a huge grand mansion with Wade and Adilyn in tow. The teenagers are thoroughly impressed with the fancy surroundings, complete with wall portraits, chandeliers, mounted animals, and red velvet furniture. As Violet leads them through the mansion, she lays it on very thick about how she is moved by Adilyn and Wade's forbidden love, and mentions that when she was their age, she frequently committed incest with her brother, too. Adilyn and Wade are visibly freaked out by this comment, as they obviously do not consider themselves to be siblings. Violet leads them into a round bedroom filled with various lubricants and sophisticated sex toys, including a leather sling, handcuffs, nipple clamps, whips, and several strap-ons and dildos. The two inexperienced teenagers look completely lost as they stare in awe at the implements. Violet announces that she's going to go to ground for the day, and tells Adilyn and Wade that they may stay as long as they wish. With sincere gratitude, Adilyn thanks Violet. In response, Violet tells them to enjoy their time together, and leaves the bedroom. Latter Adilyn and Wade are kneeling in front of each other on the bed in their underwear, surrounded by dildos and other toys, and are awkwardly discussing the amount of lube to use. Having no knowledge of these devices, they decide to look for something else to use. As they fumble about, Adilyn hears Wade's thoughts that reveal that he is not into all of this, and only wishes to satisfy her desires. She excitedly tells him that she's not into any of it either, and that she was only going along with it because she assumed that Wade was more experienced. He confesses that he had been a virgin before he was with her and she tell shim she was a virgin before she was with him also Relieved, they make love without using Violet's "accessories". Latter Violet awakens and greets Adilyn and Wade, who are still in bed together. She casually picks up the furry handcuffs laying on the table. Adilyn tells her that they didn't use her sex toys. Violet replied that that was alright, because they were going to use them now. She suddenly bares her fangs. Wade leaps up to shield Adilyn, but Violet effortlessly tosses him aside like a rag doll. In a flash, Violet handcuffs Adilyn to the bed post. Adilyn's terror wakes Jessica at once, who immediately races out of the Compton house. Bill awakes and calls out for Jessica, but it's too late
in "Almost Home" After Jason gets a text from Violet of Jessica hanging by her arms as she was taken when trying to save Adilyn and Wade he and Hoyt's girlfriend Brigette go to save them. Jason exits the car and cautiously enters the mansion. Violet ambushes him at vampire speed and pins him down with her foot on a stairwell. In a blink, she binds and gags Jason at vampire speed and throws him into the round bedroom where she is keeping her other captives Jessica Wade and Adilyn. She asks him menacingly if he wants to see what medieval revenge looks like. In the bedroom, Adilyn, Wade and Jessica are bound and gagged to various archaic implements of torture. She then chains Jason to a large, wooden X device at vampire speed. Violet then dramatically prances around the room, and begins to detail her plans for torture and killing. She states that she will begin with Wade, in order to force Adilyn to watch her lover be tortured to death with thumbscrews and have his skull crushed with a crank. Next, she tells Adilyn that she will mutilate her with a breast ripper. As Jessica grunts from behind her gag in anger, Violet makes her way over to her while adding that she will kill the Faerie by finally getting to drain her slowly. Violet then turns Jessica around to face the fireplace; Jessica screams in agony from her silver chains. From the fireplace, Violet picks up a red-hot poker that is shaped like a phallus. She tells Jessica that since she enjoys sex so much despite her hymen regenerating after every act, then perhaps she will enjoy being penetrated with the poker every 10 minutes for the next several days. At this point, Violet turns her rage onto Jason, maniacally rambling about how she just wanted her pet not to think or feel, but to simply worship her.(Violet is very angry at Jason and Jessica because while with Violet Jason slept with Jessica and poor Wade and Adilyn got caught in the middle). Hoyt suddenly appears at the bedroom entrance and shoot hers in the heart in mid-sentence. She slowly begins to disintegrate before exploding in a bloody mess as she meets the true death. Hoyt stands frozen while Jason, still muffled by his gag, tells Hoyt to unchain him, adding "Nice shot, Bubba." Hoyt unchains Jason, and then unchains a hysterical Adilyn, while Jason unchains Jessica from her painful silver chains, who then collapses in pain. Once free, Adilyn runs over to help Wade and frees him and kisses him.
In "Thank You", Wade is seen sitting next to Adilyn at Sookie's Thanksgiving dinner in 2014.
