My review of The Strain Episode 7 “For Services Rendered” is preceded by a recap of episode 6.

Warning! Spoilers ahead! If you did not watch last week’s episode, do not pass go and do not collect $200!

The Strain Episode 1.6 “Occultation” recap: Foreshadow the end of the world much? Episode 6 opens with satellites slowly orbiting doomed Earth while radio and television voices discuss the plummeting stock market, spazzy cell and internet service, and looting. “It’s like the end of the world.” No kidding. This is my favorite scene in the series thus far as it foreshadows the doom from an omniscient place.

The eclipse is coming…….Strigoi…come out and pla-a-a-y!!

Last week’s recap: If you haven’t seen the pilot episode, stop reading now!

Last week found Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) of the CDC, a man on the verge of losing his wife and son, called to the scene of a cold, dark plane. He and his partner, Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro), find everyone (except 4) on board dead, seemingly at once and with no pain. A 9-foot soil-filled coffin disappears from a warehouse by being lifted up. A mysterious old man (David Bradley) with a sword and a pet heart appears at the airport with dire warnings of things he has seen before. Another mysterious old man shows up to pay off Gus (Miguel Gomez), a thug who worships his mother, to drive some precious cargo that must be over the bridge before daybreak. We see a monster suck on a guy’s neck and then smash his head like he was Oberyn Martell. And the medical examiner has a close call when a worm-like virus (or virus-like worm) almost gets under his skin. He pulls in out in the nick of time (whew!), only to be felled by the zombie-like vampires (to the tune of “Sweet Caroline”), formerly known as the dead passengers of the doomed flight from Berlin. One dead little girl returns home to her father’s embrace.
