I just want the vasili to shoot zack, and for eph to nuke the master already, this shit is somehow moving slower than season 1.

That episode was a snoozer. There's so much they could do with the story, but we get a shoot out with a bunch of nobodies and a c section that led to the human harvest reveal...which we already knew about.

The close ups they kept doing of the one guy giving Gus angry looks was soap opera bad. We get it, he doesn't like Gus winning over his guys, we're not stupid. We also know there's going to be some kind of show down between the two since they spent so much time with the angry close ups. I wish shows wouldn't handle the audience like we're morons.

Man.... They nerfed Quinlan in this season's latest patch, huh? Something like:

As of patch 4.01, the following will be reduced in their effectiveness:

Quinlan - Reduced overall speed, reduced overall regeneration times when injured, reduced his accuracy and range of his attacks.

It suuuuuuucks for Dutch and her buddies.

Also forgot about the kawaii desu suitcase, lmao. Yup these guys are just fucking with heir audiences right now.

You're welcome.

Those damn mercs are garbage. Why are they running away at the first sight of a Strigoi? I'm pretty sure they've seen alot worse.

There was more action in that one, at least.

Also, what was the point of the flashbacks? Why is it relevant to show the Master killing some priest in 1800s London?

You mean the "mongrels"? I don't even know why Quinlan was hyping them up when they went down just as easily as any of the regular Strigoi.

Good enough to get 4 seasons, but not good enough to get 5. (the show was originally intended to last either 3 seasons if it wasn't all that successful or 5 if it was a hit. The show ended up being somewhere in the middle so they split the difference and we got 4)

I was talking about the armed guards who were unable to stop Dutch and a group of pregnant women, but you have a point about the mongrels.

The writing of this season is so embarrassing. Quinlan's flashback was the only decent moment in this episode.

I found Zack's absence quite enjoyable as well. A bit of fresh air in a breeze that otherwise smells of turds.

Final season. It's been a slow ride thus far.

To be fair, he was injured a few episodes ago. He should be healed by now, but the writers decided to nerf him for the time being I guess

Just messing with ya, lol. It was mentioned that they were called Mongrels and they made sure to show how scared Quinlan were of them, but then we see him taking care of them like nothing later. :shrugs:

After Ephs reactions to things this season, I predict the final episode will have the nuke blowing the master up and Eph, not realising nuclear bombs lead to explosions, dies in the blast. The end.
