Hunting down the Master
16 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Fet unsuccessfully tests a UV light bomb at the basement of Setrakian´s pawnshop. They prepare to go hunting the Master and Eph asks Zach to stay with Nora´s mother, leaving the keys with the boy. The annoying Mrs. Martinez is hysterical and Zach decides to leave the spot to bring cigarettes to calm her down. Meanwhile Gus returns home and finds the fate of his family. At the subway tunnel, Setrakian and his team hunt down the Master, but it is not an easy task.

In the "The Third Rail", the pointless and annoying Nora´s mother is hysterical looking for an ashtray from her youth and cigarettes. What is the point of this character? Now that Gus knows what happened to his beloved mother, what will he do? The showdown between Setrakian and the Master is not promising since it is still the beginning of the series and as per the clichés, the Master will certainly find a way to flee. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Caça ao Mestre" ("The Hunting to the Master")
