Dutch´s Plan
27 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Gus meets his cousin Raul that works in a distribution plant and convinces him to steal food. Gus, Raul, Alonso and his gang heist the warehouse however the security guard surprise them and Raul is recognized. Setrakian´s building is on fire and Dutch retrieves and hides the Occido Lumen in a ventilation inlet of another building. However she is captured and taken by the vampires to a facility for pregnant women in a bus with Setrakian that has been also arrested. Setrakian recalls the concentration camps in World War II when he sees the facility. Soon Dutch plots a plan to flee from the facility using the food delivery boy Jeremy. Desai invites Dutch to work with him but she declines the offer. Eph befriends the man he saved and his sister. Fet learns that the other prisoner worked in a silo where there are nuclear warheads.

"The Blood Tax" is the sequel of the new world disclosing more details of the partnership. The episode spends most of the time with Dutch plotting a scheme to escape and Gus and Alonso robbing the distribution center. My vote is seven.
