The Strain, Season Two, Episode Five, “Quick and Painless”

Written by Liz Phang

Directed by J. Miles Dale

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

Here’s a recap of what happened in “Quick and Painless”: Ephraim goes undercover to take Nora’s and his findings to Washington DC, Nora and Dutch negotiate Fet’s release from police custody, Abe consorts with a rare item-finder who should have his own Discovery channel show, and Palmer and Coco get close. That’s it. This week’s episode is sadly underwhelming for a series where there are so many interesting plot points to expand upon. Flashbacks of Abraham’s past have been consistently entertaining, yet there were none. With so little progress worth expanding on, this week’s review will be dedicated to a character whose spotlight was far too bright in this episode: Ephraim Goodweather.
