The Strain 309 Header

The Strain
Season 3 Episode 9: “Do or Die”
Directed by Ken Girotti
Written by Chuck Hogan
Created by Chuck Hogan, Guillermo del Toro
Starring Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Ruta Gedmintas, Max Charles, Joaquín Cosio, Rupert Penry-Jones, Samantha Mathis
FX
Air Date: Sunday October 23rd, 2016, 10pm

Last week on The Strain, we get Gus’s (Miguel Gomez) backstory on why he wants to save his strigoi mother (other than boys and their moms). His uncles took out his father after he abused their sister once too often. He became the man of the house early. In the present day, he ended up having to put her down after she almost got Angel (Joaquín Cosio). Setrakian and Fet (David Bradley and Kevin Durand) interrogated a few key people, thanks to Palmer (Jonathan Hyde), but they missed out on getting Eichorst (Richard Sammel), who had just given us a nasty little demonstration of the blood factory. Eph (Corey Stoll) and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) recovered the original JFK black box, but the Master’s sound waves made Dutch really sick. When she recovered, her and Eph had sex. Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) told the ancients to get off their asses. As they do, Eichhorst invaded the ancients lair with lots of bloodthirsty friends, which caused them to fight, and they were pretty good for some desiccated husks. That is, until they explode.

Last week, we discovered the top secret theme of Season 6 of American Horror StoryMy Roanoke Nightmare. The infamous first colony that disappeared hundreds of years ago is the new home to Shelby and Matt Miller. The show is different from prior seasons in that it’s done “Unsolved Mysteries” style with the “real” Shelby (Lily Rabe) and “real” Matt (Andre Holland) narrating their experiences to the camera, while we watch actors in a re-enactment, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. After a big city scare, The Millers retreat to Matt’s home state, and buy a huge colonial in Roanoke, NC. They instantly become targets for the locals who attack Shelby while Matt is away on a work trip. There also, of course, is a mysterious force lurking in the woods around the house. When Shelby finally takes off, she veers off the road and ends up in the middle of the woods witness to a bizarre cult.

Last week’s The Strain started off crazy as expected. Eph (Corey Stoll) is waiting for his vampire son to return, trading in what he thinks are useless asthma meds for liquor and a taser. Kelly (Natalie Brown) shows up with a deal for Eph – Zach (Max Charles) for The Lumen. Setrakian (David Bradley) studies it voraciously, only stopping to referee Fet and Quinlan (Kevin Durand and Rupert Penry-Jones). Gus (Miguel Gomez) keeps his strigoi mom as a pet.
