Dracula Episode 104

“From Darkness to Light”

Written By: Tom Grieves

Directed By: Andy Goddard

In This Episode...

New vampires come to town. Jayne kills two of them on the train; a third escapes. The third is Josef, who heads straight to Dracula’s manor. They are old friends.

We’re four episodes in and it feels like we’re stuck with no real movement forward.

With the introduction of one of Grayson’s unpredictable and out for revenge against Lady Jane sires, “From Darkness to Light” is a vast improvement over last week’s deeply flawed “Goblin Merchant Men”. Where last week’s episode highlighted the show’s problems, “From
