Searching for the Cure

In 1932, the grandmother of Abraham Setrakian tells the story of the gentle nobleman Jusef Sardu and how his life changed after a hunting party with his brother and friends. On the present days, Setrakian seeks out The Master but he is abducted by Vaun and his vampires that asks him to tell the whereabouts of The Master to his group when he found him, and Setrakian agrees. Later he goes to a storage facility with Eph and Nora to bring some objects and they stumble upon an old couple hidden inside the locker. When they are leaving the spot, they are attacked by vampires and the couple is infected. Eph decides to use them as guinea pig searching for the cure. The Master needs a new host since his body is decaying and Eichhors stops a bus with blind children to feed The Master.

"BK, NY" is a reasonable episode and the beginning of the Second Season of "The Strain". How the Master changed his body in 1932 and Eph and Nora preparing to research a cure for the infection are the only novelty. My vote is seven.
