She eventually gives in and agrees to turn him, but he backs out of it once Vicki's body is found and she's heartbroken to realise that he only wanted to become a vampire because he thought Vicki was one. He tries to apologise, but she disappears. When Anna confronts him for using her, he tells her he knows that she only befriended him for his blood. They call it even and resume their friendship. Soon after, they have sex for the first time.
