Beautiful Creatures 2.04 Summary

How It All Goes Down

The Sandman or Something Like Him

  • It's a week until Lena's birthday, and she and Ethan still haven't figured out how to save her. Lena is losing hope.
  • Ethan wakes up from a particularly disturbing nightmare and finds Macon Ravenwood at the foot of his bed. That's not creepy or anything…
  • "Either you're some kind of vampire or some kind of perv, or both. Which is it?" (2.04.36). Ethan demands to know what is going on.
  • Check out Macon's "Character Analysis" page for the run-down on everything he reveals to Ethan. But in the meantime, don't worry; he's not a perv—he's just revealing a back-story, not body parts.
  • Long story short: Macon's an Incubus and he's been feeding on Ethan's dreams. That's why Ethan can't remember all of them.
  • Amma bursts in. She's furious that Macon is in her house without her permission. After a dramatic conversation, Macon does an equally dramatic twirl and disappears.
