The Strain S4 |OT| ZaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAACH

I want him to deny the Master and then have his throat torn out as the girl he's trying to finesse walks in and starts kissing the Master.

They both look down at him as the last shred of life leaves his body and the master shifts into his mom again and says I always hated you and spits in his face.
 
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.

New episode tonight!

Belly of the Beast

Fet and Quinlan are hot on the trail of a convoy carrying their prized nuclear weapon. Also: Eph and Alex search for clues to uncover the Master's plan for the fate of the human race and Dutch is trapped by a familiar enemy and encounters an old friend.
 
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.
 
I watched this show for part of season 1 (and S4E1), but have followed reviews on the AVClub and reactions here ever since. Bless you all for suffering for the benefit of people like me.

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.
 
Master's waifu has a Strigoi fetish, lol. Played Quinlan like a damn fiddle. One thing I do like about The Strain's Master's are how tall they are, but then you get to their faces and it all falls apart lol.

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?

Well, those guards were completely useless.
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.

Can dodge bullets.

Cannot dodge clumsily thrown Malatov cocktail.
lol

How many more episodes we got left? Lol.
5. That was the halfway point of the season.

is there a lot of ppl watching this show? I am surprised something this bad get 4 seasons.
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)
 
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.
