The Strain Season 1 Episode 8 “Creatures of the Night” will be reviewed in just a moment, but first, a little recap of last week’s Episode 7 “For Services Rendered” (Warning! Spoilers may be bad for your health!).
Setrakian (David Bradley) believes killing the Master will kill all the spawn. Eph (Corey Stoll) scoffs, but Setrakian shuts him down with his “rightness” streak. They have to find his human helpers as Eichhorst (Richard Sammel) was in Nazi Germany. Jim (Sean Astin) agrees to act as bait to capture Eichorst, even though his wife leaves him over it. They lure him to a train station, but he pulls a Neo move and turns the tables. Just as a tentacle is about to devour Setrakian, Eph shoots him in the leg with silver bullets. The plan’s idea was good, but it seemed very likely to fail as Eichhorst was moving purposefully and the three of them were running around kinda crazed. And so it did.
