Yeah, you get a battle scene after all. If only for the sake of some exposition.
Alucard (telepathy): It’s question and answer time.
Reseda (telepathy): Fine by me.
Alucard: That night when you went into Integra’s room. Why?
Reseda: Well, first of all, to see if you’d figured me out yet.
Alucard: You doubted it?
Reseda: I was pretty sure you had.
Alucard: Why else?
Reseda: To see what you’d do.
Reseda: Oh, come on.
There’s a strong, healthy, able young human around, and you seem to have your eye on her, and you haven’t turned her yet? Either you didn’t want her becomign a vampire, or something else was holding you back. Of course, I didn’t know about the whole “Master” thing.
Alucard: Did somebody send you?
Reseda: I think they’re rubbing off on you. Not everything is a conspiracy.
Alucard: Someone has been making cheap copies of us with a combination of technology and sorcery. They sent a strong undead to fight me. Hence the suspicion.
Reseda: I sent myself. Relax.
Alucard: So that little prank was about nothing more than curiosity?
Alucard: Curiosity killed the cat, you know.
Reseda: No problem. I’m already dead.
