Last week on The Strain, the vamps have gotten into Red Hook via naive boat captain. It looks like the end for the councilwoman and pretty much everyone, but they have the motley heroes on their side. Nora (Mia Maestro) and Fet (Kevin Durand) go try to restore the UV power, but newly madeover Kelly Goodweather (Natalie Brown) follow them because they have Zach. Eph (Corey Stoll) and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) take up arms (seperately). Nikki ends up saving Dutch’s life, and for that sweet Fet is grateful. In a last hope rallying cry, Justine urges the people of Red Hook to take up arms, and it’s a victory for the neighborhood (even though if Nora and Fet did not get the power back on, it would have been a different story). Setrakian (David Bradley) takes off after Eichorst (Richard Sammel), with Eph on his heels. I honestly can’t believe Setrakian has not given up by now, because he never wins.
Last week on The Strain, there’s a showdown in a church between Mommy Goodweather (Natalie Brown) and her mini-minions, and Nora (Mia Maestro), Zach, and the cavalry. Eph (Corey Stoll) gets to Washington DC via fake ID, throws his former director off the train, sleeps with a really smart lady, and then gets shot (after his friend and said lady are killed), plus his vampire virus is stolen. He really had a bad trip, huh? Only drop of silver lining – he can trace it back to Palmer (Jonathan Hyde). Fitzwilliam decides to join the team, but doesn’t even last the episode, which is too bad. he would have made an awesome asset. Gus (Miguel Gomez) and Felix (JoaquÃn Cosio) bond via vampire slaying. The Master changes into a Bolivar (Jack Kesy) body. There’s a new elder in town.
