Dr. Himoff was concerned that giving Setrakian amphetamines to wake him up would be dangerous because it would put too much stress on his heart. But then, upon Eichorst's insistence, he orders the nurse to give Setrakian 600 mg of dextroamphetamine, a dose that would almost certainly be lethal to any person, and would defiantly be lethal to an elderly person recovering from major surgery. The maximum daily dose of dextroamphetamine is 50 mg, sometimes doctors will have to use more to reverse the effects of sedatives, but they would never go over 100 mg. See more »

Great Episode
29 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the countryside of Pennsylvania, Eph and Alex´s car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. They walk to a nearby town that is completely empty and Eph finds a cell phone that belonged to a girl called Emily with a videos where her family is moving to New Horizons. They stay for the night at the family´s house. Then they meet a woman called Francis and find that people that go to New Horizons become not farmers but livestock. In North Dakota, Fet, Quinlan, Roman and Charlotte see a vampire taking another missile from another silo. They decide to steal the plutonium pit and Charlotte lies to the crew telling that there is silver in the truck that will be theirs. Quinlan recalls his life in London in 1988 when he met the young woman Louisa and her daughter. Dutch is imprisoned in a cell and Eichhorst summons her to know where Setrakian is.

"Belly of the Beast" is a great episode of "The Strain". All the segments are engaging, attractive and full of action with many discoveries and revelations. Dutch is growing each episode. My vote is nine.
