Review Quotes


Palmer is furious the Master hasn't fulfilled his part of the deal. Eichhorst warns him the Master does as he pleases. Will he turn the old man?

After returning from the tunnels defeated, Dutch reappears at the pawn shop with a win for the good guys. She plans to use the Emergency Alert System to broadcast  Eph's warning about the vampiric plague to the nation.

When the time comes, Eph introduces himself and talks about the disease spreading thoughout New York City. Before his 30 second window expires, Eph manages to display photographs of a strigoi autopsy he performed.

In Queens, Gus visits Alonso Creem, the stolen car dealer. The guy's got guns, ammo and tons of cash which Gus needs to fight the vamps. When he sees a bag full of cash and hears about some containers at the docks, Gus decides to check them out. He and Creem open the containers to discover dozens of vamps inside.

Luckily, the hooded strigoi soldier arrives in time to kill the creatures and abduct Gus. Where's he taking our favorite gangbanger?

Back at the pawnshop, Eichhorst and his minions attack. Bolivar infects Nora's poor mother and Nora is forced to release her. Witnessing this decapitation reminds Setrakian of his infected wife, Miriam. That's right, the heart in the jar belongs to Abraham's wife.

During the attack Setrakian reveals a secret passage through the meat locker and everyone arms up and heads out of there.

We end right where we started, at the Stoneheart Group building. The Master finally comes to Palmer, slices his finger and pours a few drops of white blood into the old man's mouth. No worm was transferred, so what does this mean? Was Palmer turned? He certainly looks stronger.
