night or several nights prior,

the hunger would be transcendent.

A meal fit for a king.

To get Lestat at his most egoistical

and his most blinded, yes, maybe then

I will buy this idea
to lets go out with a bang.

Let's not be these hiding,
shrieking vampires.

Let's leave rooms full of bodies
and get on out

on the last train.

But Louis, you got to open
your heart back up to him.

That is the thing that will
blind Lestat more than anything.

A last dance before the feast.

It is the swooning heights
of the uber romanticism

of ours is this dance in front
of everybody and this kiss.

Lestat cannot help himself.

He's so in love with Louis.

But in the middle of the party,

we are picking our victims out.

We're gonna have the great feast

of our life, so it can't
just be one victim.

It's gonna be like one of these
horrible tasting menus

where we're just gonna gather up
all these people

that know we have the fountain of youth

and come back to our after party.

Would you like to know
the secret of immortality?

Well, of course, my dear. Who wouldn't?

There they are, but they are
there only as the grand plan,

get Lestat looking this way
and now we have

a little bit of fun.

Give me that ladle.

It's empty.

Not for long, Tom.


Most of them are sort of the ugly ones

that we have seen throughout the show,

but then, look at the twins.

We all know the books.

Go to the twins, go to the twins.

You broke up the pair.

I know you wanted them both,
but Louis couldn't resist.

I'm sorry, my love.

And then there's this mysterious
man in the tuxedo.

What is that all about? Very
strange little detail there.

And, you know, you guys are all savvy.

You know something's not right here.

I can't be that easy, until you
had that reverse line.

I've always known Antoinette
was out there.

So, if you played everybody's
sort of arcs,

no one quite knew everything.

How? Who?

JONES: Claudia knew that eventually

if we put Tom Anderson in there,
make him drink

poison blood, he would
go after Tom Anderson.

He who called you him.


They don't quite know totally
how to k*ll a vampire,

but they think that'll do the job.

Always the petty sights
with you, Uncle Les.


♪ ♪

Back to Dubai, Molloy
starts asking questions

and some very probing questions.

What actually did happen that night?

So, what did you do with it?

It's very, very simple.

What you're supposed to do
is you're supposed

to clean up your d*ad.

You're supposed to put the vampire

in the incinerator.

Why didn't you do it?

There's a feeling that she hated

your guts there for a while.
Why is that?

The girl did not have a f*cking problem

tossing him on the grill, okay?

- The sun's coming up.
- No.

- We have to burn him.
- No.

It's the only way we'll know.


I said no!

And I think Louis is remembering that

for the first time in a long time.

- You've only heard half the story.
- Stop.

This is the same shit that
happened in San Francisco.

JONES: It forces the vampire
Armand to jump in.

This time I won't save your life.

Louis can sometimes act out.

I protect him from himself.

JONES: It's not, I think,
just to protect Louis

from maybe going ape shit
and k*lling Molloy.

I think there is a story
that has been told to Louis

that Louis has told
to himself that maybe

Armand has told to him, too.

For those people who have
ever read the book,

this is a major player out there, folks.

This is the leader
of a coven of vampires

and one who is very, very powerful.

So, yeah, that last line,
we were sort of looking for

like the ending to the graduate,
this sort of very

unsettling wait, what?

I'd like you to meet...

the vampire Armand.

The love of my life.
