4.2 The Blood Tax

Last week, as we began to experience the final season of The Strain, the series introduced a horrific dystopian world and featured Eph and Fet trying to navigate that world. With Eph trying to survive in Philadelphia and Fet trying to find a missile silo in North Dakota, fans learned about this new propaganda-driven strigoi world, but the narrative didn’t really allow us to go inside the inner workings of the new strigoi monarchy. Through Fet and Eph, we got to exist on the fringes of this bloodsucker-run America, but we never really got a ground zero view of what torture and atrocities truly exist within the strigoi states of America. »

The Strain Season 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Worm Turns’

Martin Carr reviews the season 4 premiere of The Strain

With a rosy nuclear winter turning daylight to permanent dusk, munchers walking the streets and Eldritch Palmer possessed things could be better. Manhattan is cloaked in a doom and gloom which extends beyond a lack of food, adequate sanitation and makeshift rationing centre. Humanity is dwelling on the aftermath of a battle waged, people sacrificed and middle ground taken. It is an uneasy alliance which exists as humans are subtlety taken, farmed for blood or savaged for sport in plain sight. This is the new reality Ephraim Goodweather must adapt to or die.

With our heroes split asunder and surviving day to day The Strain shares the screen time between Eichorst , Palmer, Fet and Quinlan while Goodweather skirts the periphery. Corey Stoll continues to be the morally flexible centre of this thriller, illustrating a resourceful side which we have seen grow since season one. »

4.1 The Worm Turns

When The Strain hit its cliffhanger finish last season, we were left wondering: what’s next? When ‘lil Zach Goodweather pressed the detonator of a nuclear device and blew up New York City, fans were left in a whole new world where The Strain would no longer be about preventing the apocalypse, it would now be about surviving the apocalypse.

And that’s exactly where we pick things up, in a whole new world where the strigoi rule the United States, where humans exist as a feeder class, and where propaganda and desperation are the order of the day as The Strain has gone from a survival horror series to a dystopian survival series and the genre refresh has »
