The Hunter takes them to the fort where they are distrusted. Gilbert tries to convince Wallace to cast them out but the sisters are allowed to stay, though Gilbert views them as harbinbringers of sin. That night, after Ginger is bitten by Geoffery in Wallace's house, the sisters attempt to leave the fort, but acidintly let werewolves into the fort, starting a fight between the men and the attacking werewolves. During the fight, Gilbert leads Ginger and Brigitte to a seemingly safe house, inhabitied by a werewolf. Gilbert locks them in telling them to "burn in hell".
