The episode begins in Ravenscar, a psychiatric facility in Northern Ireland. John Constantine is strapped to a table and given a mouth guard. Constantine is then given electroshock treatment, while in the background we hear Constantine's voice saying that he came to Ravenscar voluntarily. Constantine explains that he is an exorcist and that there are days one needs to forget in his line of work, though there are some days he never will.
Shift to Constantine sitting in a psychiatrists office being questioned about the death of a young woman in Newcastle. Dr. Roger Huntoon asks if Constantine remembers the murderer and John refers to the murderer as a demon, claiming to see said demon every time he closes his eyes. Huntoon suggests that Constantine feels guilty for not being able to protect the victim and has thus created the murderer as the embodiment of evil. John argues that not everyone is powerless against demons and Dr. Huntoon notes that before John became a resident at the hospital, John was working as an exorcist, demonist and a master of the dark arts. John snarks that he should change master to petty dabler to avoid being accused of sounding arrogant. Finally, in frustration, John demands that Huntoon refer to Astra by her name rather than as the victim. John adds that Astra is nine years old and suffering for all of eternity and demands that Huntoon make him believe that there are no such things as demon.
John is now sitting in a group therapy session and is clearly bored by someone's share. Three cockroaches cross the floor and John decides to follow and finds that the bugs are increasing as he follows them. He follows them to an art area, where a woman is painting on the wall but it is covered in roaches. John approaches her, telling her to stop, only too see that her eyes have gone opaque. John walks away saying that this is not his job and then turns suddenly saying that he is addressing the demon inside the woman. He puts his hand on the woman's forehead and she flies across the room screeching. John demands that the demon leave this place, as it continues to fly about the room. Suddenly, the demon flies across the room trying to attack John and he forces it to the ground while speaking in Latin. The windows explode and they get covered in paint. The demon leaves and John finds the message the demon wrote on the wall LIVDIE. John declares that he has been wasting his time in the hospital, then blames the woman for the mess, before walking out of the room.
In Atlanta Georgia, Liv Aberdine sits and chats with someone about her future. Liv packs up her things to leave and pauses to open her fortune cookie, only to find it empty. Liv declares that she has no future. Liv heads outside and starts her car and starts to reverse but she keeps getting a warning that there is something behind her. Liv gets out of the car and checks behind the car and when she bends to look under it, the car starts to back up on its own. A panicked Liv screams but the car shuts down. Liv gets back into the car to find that it won't start and suddenly the lights go out in the parking lot. Liv starts walking and the ground around her begins to crack, tossing her in the air. The ground sinks, creating a big hole and Liv takes off running.
John pulls up in a yellow cab, asking if Liv is in a bit of trouble and introducing himself. Liv pulls out pepper spray and orders John to stay back. John simply tells Liv that she is pointing the pepper spray the wrong way because he is not the one who is hunting her. . Liv demands that John stay away but John tells Liv that is she doesn't listen, she will be dead by morning. Liv decides to call the police and John hands over his card saying that this is where the police can reach him, or Liv can, if she enjoys bleeding. Liv reads the card, as John climbs into the hole.
Something flies overhead and John calls out that he is a nasty piece of work. Manny, an angel, tells John that he shouldn't be down here and questions what brings John back to the street. John explains that he was asked to protect a lady by an old friend. Manny says that he was asked to watch over John. Constantine makes it clear however that he is not in the business of hanging out with angels and that Manny will ruin his reputation. Manny brings up the hospital and John screams that he checked out and is okay. John moves to pull away and Manny grabs him saying that John damned a girl along with himself. Manny adds that while he cannot change John's fate, he can ease John's suffering. John instructs Manny to go and feed off of someone else's loss but Manny replies that John's is exquisite. When John tells Manny that he can handle a demon attack, Manny points out that John has been out of action for awhile and that people can sense what is on the way. John asks what is on the way and suddenly sirens sound in the distance. Many quickly flies away, as John screams, "what's on the way?"
Liv gets out of Talia's car, thanking her for picking her up. Talia says that it's not problem as she works five minutes away from Liv. The two women enter an apartment building but are unaware that not only are they being watched, they are being followed. Liv enters her apartment but notices a strange man in the hallway. The man pulls out a large knife and stands in front of Liv's closed door. In her apartment, Liv reads her new fortune which simply says, "trust him."
In her apartment, Talia is working on her laptop when it goes on the fritz. In the hallway of the building, the lights flash on and off and we see a triangular carving at Liv's door, along with a salt semi-circle on the floor. Live sits up suddenly when a helicopter light flashes in her window. Liv opens her door to find the area swarming with cops and a dead Talia on the floor of her apartment. A horrified Liv turns to re-enter her apartment and she notices the carving on her door.
The medical examiner loads Talia's body into the van and she is driven away. In the back of the van, Talia's body starts to thrash, causing the driver to stop the vehicle and shake the body bag. Talia thrashes in the bag, as the driver begs her to hold on so that he can let her out. Of course, when he opens the bag, it's empty, so he uses his flashlight to look around the van, only to have a now demon Talia attack him.
John is leaning against his cab, when Liv pulls up in a cop car and gets out. Liv approaches John and shows him the symbol which was carved into her door. John explains that it's an Egyptian symbol called the eye of Horace and that it's a symbol of protection. Liv says that she saw a man in her hallway last night and that she believes, he killed Talia. John knocks on the car and Chaz gets out of the car to be introduced as Constantine's oldest friend and the man who made the carving on Liz's door. Chaz simply tells Liv that he is glad she is safe, before getting back into the car. Liv questions why anyone would want her dead because she is a nobody. Constantine explains that Liv is not a nobody and that he promised Liv's father that he would keep her safe. Liv says that it's not possible because her father died before she was born and then she turns to leave. John calls out that whoever told Liv that was lying and adds that her father died just last year. Constantine pulls out a bag out of his pocket and tells Liv to open it because her father wanted her to have it.
Suddenly, the medical examiner van speeds past John and Liv and crashes into Liv's place of business. Chaz gets out of the car and joins Liv and John as they rush towards the building. John yells for everyone to get out and orders Chaz to get the people out. Liv finds her nameplate on the floor and realises that had she not been talking to John, the van would have killed her. John explains that whatever is after Liv must be able to feel her energy. John tells Liv that they won't give up until she is dead. Liv walks to the front of the van to find Talia struggling to breathe, with opaque eyes, stuck in the wreckage. Liv is shocked and says that Talia is alive but John corrects that assumption and informs Liv that something is using Talia's body. John asks Talia who sent her and she lets out a howl, shutting down all of the electricity in the area.
