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.
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.
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.
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)
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:
