Jayne Rutledge dreams of herself as a little girl running in a big garden. She's being chased by a large black dog. Before the dog proceeds to bite her, Jayne wakes up screaming. Sophia and Brody rush into Jayne's bedroom. Sophia tries to comfort Jayne, telling her it was just a nightmare. Brody asks Jayne if it was the nightmare she keeps having. Jayne tells him it was which deeply concerns Brody and Sophia.
Elsewhere, a young woman named Charlotte Whittaker is seen waiting at a busstop. It's late in the night and Charlotte is completely alone. Suddenly someone calls on her cellphone. The screen reveals someone named "Verona" is trying to call her. Charlotte does not answer the call. Charlotte is growing impatient on waiting on the bus. She decides she'll walk to next gas station. Meanwhile a fog surrounds the road. Charlotte decides to walk faster but then she begins to hear strange voices. Charlotte becomes panicked and keeps running. Then she bumps into a man. Charlotte quickly gets away from the man. The man tells he won't hurt her as long as she helps him. Charlotte tells him to go to hell. The man answers he already did and it wasn't much fun. Charlotte warns him to stay away or she'll hurt him. The man just laughs and proceeds to attack her.
The next morning, Jayne encounters Bethany Thompson and Vanessa Josephine in the kitchen. They are both concerned with Jayne but she insists she's okay. Brody joins them in the kitchen. Jayne asks him where Sophia is. Brody reveals that Sophia has been seeking help from someone who could help Jayne with her strange dream. Brody tells Jayne that he maybe could her with his powers. Jayne worries that Brody might not be able to help her. Bethany tells her they can still try.
Meanwhile Charlotte wakes up in a cabin. Her hands are tied behind her back. Before she can try to cut them loose, the man enters the cabin. He warns her not to try to escape as he will hurt her. The man brings her a bottle of water. He tells her she can take a sip of water if she answers his questions correctly. Charlotte agrees to his demands. He asks her how it can be that he is alive again. He last remembered getting a stake through his chest from a woman whom he tried to feed from. Now he can't stand the taste of human blood anymore. Charlotte tells him that she doesn't know how he came back from The Underworld. The man grows angry at Charlotte and attacks her. He tells her he will get the answers out of her. He then leaves the cabin. Charlotte looks scared.
Brody prepares his ritual to enter Jayne's mind. He asks her lay down on the ground. Bethany and Vanessa hold Jayne's hands as Brody proceeds to hold her head. Brody tells her to close her eyes and visualize her dream. Brody closes his eyes and suddenly he is transported inside Jayne's head. He and Jayne see her younger self running in the garden from the big black dog. Suddenly younger Jayne and the dog are frozen. Brody asks Jayne if she has seen the dog before. She tells she hasn't. He reveals that the dog could have a deeper meaning. Brody tells Jayne that the only way they can find out is if she lets the dog bite her. Jayne takes the place of her younger self. The dog moves again and attacks Jayne. She screams but when she wakes up she and Brody are no longer in the garden but in a house. Jayne tells Brody that the dog is gone. They proceed to explore the house. Jayne suddenly hears a baby crying upstairs and decides to follow the sound. She and Brody enter a nursery but there is only an empty crib. Brody wonders what this all means. Jayne sees a girl, Charlotte, sitting in the corner of the room. Jayne asks her who she is. She tells them her name is Charlotte Whittaker and that she's in danger. She tells them to look for Verona Townsend. Jayne tries to reach out to Charlotte but then the house begins to shake. Everything breaks apart and Brody tells Jayne to let go. When Jayne opens up her eyes she's back in Sophia's mansion. Vanessa asks Brody and Jayne what they saw. Brody tells her he doesn't understand what happened. Sophia enters the room. She reveals that hasn't found anyone who could them. Jayne tells her that she no longer needs help but someone else does.
Brody and Jayne tell Sophia, Vanessa and Bethany what happened and how Charlotte reached out to them. Brody doesn't know how Charlotte was able to connect to Jayne. Bethany tells them that the girl could be a very powerful witch. Vanessa warns them that this could be all a trap. Jayne still wants to help the girl and proceeds to call one of her old contacts who could help her track down Verona Townsend. When Jayne has left the room, Sophia asks Brody to help Jayne and keep an eye on her as she agrees with Vanessa that this all might be a trick.
Philippe returns to the cabin. He asks Charlotte if she now wants to answers his questions. Charlotte reveals she's just a novice witch and doesn't understand her powers yet. Philippe thinks Charlotte is lying and wants her to test her powers on him. He frees Charlotte and asks her to unleash her magic. Charlotte tells him she hasn't got any control over it and reveals that she only accidentally revived her dead dog once. He becomes angry and hits Charlotte.
