Wow. Mind blowing episode
30 August 2014 | by Brettyboy007See all my reviews

The Strain is definitely becoming a big hit. This episode proves it. It had a lot of events happen from having some more Abraham and Thomas backstory to the introduction of vampire bounty hunters. Vampire bounty hunters? Yes.

The episode started off with a part from the book which I thought was very well done. Something happened though that was different than the book, which proves that the book and the show are two very separate works. I'm interested to get to the part of the first book with the vampire bounty hunters and learn more about them, if they're in the first book.

Excited for episode 8. Season 1 is getting to the end and then we'll have to wait for the next season.

Season 2 seems like it will focus more on the survivors adjusting to New York after the infection ends. Maybe a get rid of as many vampires as we can while we search for The Master season? That'd be good to me.
