I agree with you Chris...Eric just cannot DIE that way! My son had a thought as we watched last night...maybe Sookie's blood can cure the disease. Maybe she can save Eric!
Great Finale! Talk about cliff hanger - there were cliff hangers. Zoila's pregnant, Genevieve needs a kidney, Nick has confessed to the Powells, Rosie's husband is alive and the shocker of them all - crazy boy Ty shoots up the wedding!!! I too am delighted that Carmen saw Ty and everyone will know who's behind the shooting.Can't wait for Season 3!
I loved this episode. Eric just can not die! Loved his scenes with Sookie. They have some crazy chemistry together and that's who should end up together. Bye Bye Bill!
Awesome episode, spent some quality father son time by watching it with my old man who is a vampire freak and watches way too much TV for his age.It kind of ruined the experience as he was being unusually nitpicky - Why is Barnes holding a kleenex around his nose? He knows it wont stop a virus from spreading and there's no decomposition smell. Setrakian seems crazy, but he clearly knows what is going on - it's not a natural reaction for Goodweather, who needs any kind of answer of what's going on, to shut him out? Why is the cargo door in the plane not exploded open after the Master made his big entrance? Why isn't anyone inquiring about where Bishop is and why is his body not discovered? Why this? Why that? Nevertheless, aside from those distractions I found the Pilot to have a great pace and was thoroughly entertaining. It set up the show very nice. They haven't even introduced Vasily Fet; I read in advanced reviews his character on the show is as awesome as in the book, can't wait for his introduction. My one qualm is that I find Goodweather to be a bit of a jerk and not likeable at all. This whole I'm the center of the world kind of attitude - I empathized with him more in the book. Hopefully, this cause changes him and we see maturity in future episodes. Matt was also more of a jerk than in the book, but I guess that was written in to make viewers like Eph more, which I didn't since he was a bigger ass. What's with Kelly's attraction to douchebags? On a side note, I hope they explain in later episodes how The Master was able to infect 200 plus souls all at once without causing mass hysteria. Don't think that was explained in the book.

All valid points and many are answered in the next episode. Bishop's body will be discovered early on. They've got to stretch things out over 13 episodes, so naturally we don't get all the answers right away. Still, how cool is it that your Dad's a vampire freak? That's so awesome! I agree with you the pacing is excellent and I've watched it four or five times now. Fet makes his debut next week and personally I think he's even cooler than in the books. I'm totally with you on exactly how The Master infected the passengers. Don't remember it being explained in the books either. That little incision in the neck?
Finally an episode I liked :) Enjoyed it a lot!
I disagree, he is still sex on a throne, but more than crazy hot sex against a wall in a dark alley, he is now sweet long love-making in a bed. The look on his face when he saw Sookie and the smile when Pam said "You still love me" were the sweetest thing. Alexander Skarsgard is great at playing Eric as complex instead of the typical hot bad guy.
Great episode! Enjoyed meeting the characters and finding out a little of their stories. Jim letting the truck through really surprised me.... I hope he's not a bad guy! The Master was also scary as hell! Lol Great recap! Looking forward to reading more throughout the season.
Hey sis, how cool of you to leave me a comment! I've missed them ;) Then again you never finished watching Da Vinci's Demons Ha! I have no doubt you won't fall asleep during The Strain.
best episode so far of the season !!!!
I really liked this episode. However, realistically, the problems should continue to grow and grow as they don't have spare parts for some things, and will always be in need of fresh water, food, and fuel. We'll see how things go, but I'm looking forward to it.
You're right. It's only episode 4, though, so maybe we're in for more of an honest-to-goodness end of world scenario than it seemed in the first couple episodes. If everything is about the cure, the series would end in no time. I hope we see a lot of different scenarios come up on them.
One thing that drives me crazy (other than the fauxmance) is Casey (yeah, yeah :-) arguing essentially in favour of losing the virus in order to get the ship to safe harbour. The world is dying. You have what is likely the only chance at saving what's left of the human race. If your choice is (a) save the chance and likely lose some/most of the crew, or (b) save the crew but doom humanity (including the crew), well.... it's a no-brainer! Oh yes... totally called the lost ball the moment the game started :-)
Slattery is there to be Chandler's foil, but only enough to force Chandler to question things (in other words, we might be too stupid to understand what Chandler is going through without words). Basketball. Really. What kind of idiot came up with that idea?! LOL
