However, inquisitive questioning of Mister McClanahan would paint the image that Mister Milton is getting a fresh mold to work with instead of a proper retainer – with an almost complete lack of Kindred knowledge. Note: Melvyn should look more and more nervous with each question. It is fine to add a laugh track at the end, but don’t overdo it
In the meanwhile, Lady Luna also asks to have a look around of the Wyrm’s Nest, before returning back to Lounge when Lord Lynch appears (even more whistling) and handles the Oath. After that both Lord and Lady leave, and the trio are alone. A bit more nervous questioning, and Mister McClanahan leaves Mister Milton alone to deal with Melvyn’s tutoring.
Note: Find a window in-between the scenes to show that Mister McClanahan gave some sort of book to Lady Luna.

He decides looking tough, using Nightmare to make himself more dreadful, but these thugs have seen scarier stuff. Then he somehow finds the bravery to try to land an awkward hit (followed by wild laughter), which gets their attention, trying to beat them up. Mister Rivers weaves out of the hits and runs away, whereas Mister Milton steals another thug’s hat and taunts him – and gets hit squarely in the nose, breaking it. the laugh track doesn’t stop the entire time However, a bit of bone readjustment, and Mister Milton runs away from the thugs without any further harm – making the duo separated.

There, he scolds Mister Rivers for his manners, as well as for his sloppy feeding, once he hears about it. Tesoro makes an appearance, getting surprised at the new Kindred in their house. The older Dragon then sends the young Mister back to the alleyway to clean it up.

Location: Coterie House Entrance
Mister Rivers comes back, this time clicking the doorbell once, as taught by Mister McClanahan. Mister McClanahan is shown playing the piano again, and the whole starting sequence looks like a dejavu. He eventually lets in Mister Rivers, still mad at the youth’s goofing up, but giving him the key to the house grudgingly. Tesoro makes another appearance, complaining about finding a body in a dumpster (cue the laughter), leaving soon after as Mister Rivers just continues stuttering and grumbling about it. Just after that, Mister Milton is back, with the two bodies reanimated. the crowd goes wild cheering and laughing After scolding Mister Rivers himself for not caring about the bodies after their forced transcendence, he leads the bodies upstairs to take care of them.

Mister Rivers comes up to Mister Milton’s room, wishing to learn more about the Ordo Dracul, only to be surprised and disgusted by the smell coming from his room. As Mister Milton opens the door, the smell just gets stronger, forcing Mister Rivers to cover his nose. Requested an explanation, Mister Milton simply shows him the room _(whistling at Lana’s appearance should be avoided this time as this reveal was already made few times in this season) and explains that he takes care of them after they have transcended from their bodies. While Mister Rivers gets visually disgusted by the sight, he doesn’t wish for further explanation and the duo have their expositional block, after which Mister Milton decides to show him how a proper clean feeding happens.

A quick interlude, showing Mister Milton as he sips blood from one of his designated Herd and explains to Mister Rivers why they are so receptive from being drained. He then offers him a few different ways at how he could handle his feeding, as Mister Rivers swears not to drink human blood. Included in those ways was an offer for him to simply drink from Mister Milton every time, but being kind, he warned him about the risk, letting him to choose later.
