I just thought of something else. There's a flaw in Eph and Nora's plan. If the Master can see through the eyes of all of his subjects he must know what they're up to.
Why wouldn't he just kill the infected vampire before it can start infecting the other ones?

Ahhh tune in to Episode 4 my friend ;) Obviously perfecting a virus in the third episode is a problem storywise. What's next if they succeed in infecting the other strigoi. It's a cool twist, you'll see.

I agree, it's too convoluted with multiple story lines. And it's not the fault of the actors; I feel they've all done great with their roles, but the story feels so needlessly complex that they should have reduced the main characters by one or two.

I'd say it became laughable pretty early. ;) Vince Vaughn is all height and no gravitas. I think they could have cut his character out of the show entirely and not hurt it. Colin Farrell the heartthrob just isn't believable as a middle-aged burned out cop, though I give him credit for his acting. The other two are also actually pretty good acting-wise, but their characters just aren't interesting. Or maybe they might have been if it weren't for the rest of the show being such a mess. Season One centered around a strange crime and had two pro actors chew the hell out of it. The setting was pretty thick with atmosphere. This season had a crime, but it was a crime against a scumbag. And it got pushed aside with a convoluted plot. To make up for the lack of atmosphere, we got a big dose of Twin Peaks. Good grief... I could go on. I knew when Season One ended it was a fluke. It was too good and looked like it was from a guy new to television. (No old pros in TV would fill it with so much philosophical dialogue.) Season Two shows that Pizzolatto was sort of a flash in the pan. Clunky dialogue that should have never made it to air. ... Disappointment.

It's gotten to the point it's almost laughable. I read a friend's recap on another site, and I suppose Frank was visiting someone who was related in some way to the sale of the blue diamonds. Or maybe I just conveniently connected those two plots in my head via Frank because I heard the word "kids." Who cares about diamonds that apparently traded hands in the 1992 LA riots?! I don't care about these poor people. Just yikes.

Hey Carissa.. I think Frank was visiting the widow of the guy that worked for him - the one who worked in the sewage company or whatever it was. He was trying to get him back into business but then he got murdered. I think that was his family.

The Strain Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Fort Defiance

I liked McHattie and I think his character was grossly underused. So much potential.

Could not agree with you more!

Sad that this show has gotten so ridiculous . It was once a decent show - I watch 10 min of the show two weeks ago still on the DVR and as soon as the old lady started making out with the kid I deleted it.

You and me both. Then I can spend the appropriate amount of time on Ray Donovan, which deserves the attention.

I think this was probably the most boring episode in the shows history, too much focus on building a railroad and no building up of new human threats to bohanon. And when the girl was hanging off the cliff, it looked like hundreds or a thousand feet to the ground. Then somehow Cullen gets to her in like 10 seconds. And she's alive. And this show has gotten too predictable or annoying with whatever the current minority is on the show, blacks now Chinese, they are always the heroic and do-gooding underdogs, except for Chang. Hopefully the show picks up next week.

You missed Tom Welling he would be great in so many roles he needs to come back to t.v. land, fans demand it.

Season 3 is a knockout. No letdown for me. Mr Schreiber's performances are pure craftsmanship. I do agree about Ray's family. There are annoying and completely unsympathetic characters...

Halt and Catch Fire Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Kali

to answer your question: yes, cameron would have gone through with it if Joe had "followed through" on the kiss...she already knew that Joe was leaving west group to go west...she knew that joe had nothing to do with it...she was out to get those bastards at west plain and simple...or maybe not so simple....the big question to me is...did she foresee that this hack would cause a rift between joe and sara thus opening the door for them to "reconnect".....strong women tend to be attracted up....while tom is a genius, she still sees herself as above him....but with joe...she sees him as above her..."you're joe mcmillan....you can do what you want" she is so attracted to that...he is such a challenge to her.....this episode opened up the door to the two of them reconnecting...big time..and you can see that joe is still verrrry much attracted to her...and sara knows it! real cool drama.

You have a great insight into Cameron. I still think that she will ultimately regret letting Tom go. Let's face it she does have a thing for Joe but I can't believe that she still thinks that Joe is "above" her. Plus she is losing "Bos" who really has saved her bacon.

@ Isoron

Bosworth has been such a great help to Mutiny! I'm hoping he's not really going to leave...

@ Sean McKenna

Let's hope that Cameron has an epiphany and realizes that she actually needs Bos and Tom (they actually saved the company). But Joe is like an addiction for her - pity they don't have a 12-step program for him.

@ shooter_mcgee

That was such an intense moment from Joe and Cameron's meetup to the shareholders meeting. I'm not so sure though that she was able to foresee the rift, but it will be interesting to see where her and Joe's characters go from here.

I'm with you Hank. This week was a bit of a downer. I didn't see Vaun's demise coming but I think it paves the way for the "real" Mr. Quinlan now. Bringing in the big guns if you will. I'm pretty much over Dutch. She's just eye candy at this point to me. I'm starting to think they're using her story arc as filler so they can spread the second book over these two seasons. That's going to kill the pace of the show. I did like Eph making his speech to the Master the way he did. Eph is growing on me this season. Looks like Abraham is back and that's good news. Maybe he can take the team forward instead of just spinning their wheels. I'm not really sure where they're going to go with Fitzwilliam but that one I'm curious about. Next week looks good as they see if their "infection" works. That should be a good episode. Good job Hank! I look forward to the podcast.

@ Joe Desiderio

Totally agree with you on the Dutch and Eph part! While Eph is finally more likeable (-ish...), Dutch at this point seems nothing more than some kind of 'hey, we need a bad*ss warrior queen because of reasons' character.

@ Joe Desiderio

I'm wondering WHEN we'll see the real Quinlan now... It's got to be soon. Not sure why they switched him out, unless they want to introduce him in a special way. I thought Vaun's intro was pretty damn cool last season. Seems like such a waste of Stephen McHattie's talent though... weird. I have a feeling Dutch is on her way out. The only reason to reintroduce the Nikki character is for her ex to come after her. Don't get me wrong, I like Dutch but I think she's outlived her usefulness storywise. Fitzwilliam is super important, he even knows about the Lumen! He's a great ally. I've just seen Ep.4 and its got some fun twists!
