Rachel is called to identify the body of a patient and volunteers to help investigate his death and that of a number of other men. The murders lead the team to a succubus, a female demon that uses her victim's sorrow and love for another to suck the life force from them. The team's cause for concern grows deeper when Nick seems to be blindly falling for a waitress with no past.
