Alex discovers she’s not the only ghost haunting Honolulu Heights. Meanwhile, Tom and Hal go head-to-head in the hotel's Employee of the Month competition, much to the delight of Captain Hatch, who feeds on werewolf/vampire conflict.

In the supernatural archive, Mr. Rook is hatching a devious scheme to save his department, one that involves newly made vampire Crumb.

Guest stars Benjamin Greaves-Neal as Oliver Fitzwilliam Pryor.
