As Hal and Tom go head to head over employee of the month (an idea suggested by Hatch, who likes to see vampires and werewolves at odds), Alex discovers another ghost in the house, a little Victorian boy named Oliver, who killed himself after causing his younger brother's death in playing hide and seek. It becomes apparent that Hatch has sent Oliver to the trio as a trap. Though the child successfully passes over (having admitted to Alex that he was bait), Alex is warned that 'He Will Rise.' Rook meanwhile grooms Ian Crumb to do his bidding. Written by don @ minifie-1

Dominic Rook: We don't really do badges. I mean it's undercover work and a badge would rather give the game away.
Ian Crumb: That makes total sense! You're smart. You're very smart.
Dominic Rook: Instead. You get this pen. This very special pen.
[Hands him a pen]
Ian Crumb: [Excited] Oh, does it shoot poison gas? Or pellets? or poison gas pellets?
Ian Crumb: No. It's essentially a pen.
