In “Outside World“, Vanessa made Mohamed human again and said: “At least I saved one person in all of this.” It turns out that is not so. Sam finds Mohamed and (probably at the urging of The Oracle) takes him to Renfield House, where Scarlett and Axel have met up with Vanessa in their quest to find and kill the Fourth Elder. What transpires with all these folks in the same room is complicated, but after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, Sam (Christopher Heyerdahl) kills Mohamed, and Vanessa kills Scarlett. Mohamed dies because to become an Elder, Sam had to kill the one that he loves to completely detach himself from humanity. Continue reading →
Black Tek administrator Caitlin (Enid Raye-Adams) has Joline arrested for spreading the truth about the side effects of vampire repellent. She wants Doc to make the repellent work better.
CAITLIN:“It took our best people months to discover the link between Black Tech’s repellent and the outbreak. You did it in 48 hours.” DOC:“Maybe they’re not your best people.” CAITLIN:“We want to take this country back. Make it great again. Make it safe. Bottom line, we need you.” DOC:“Look, Caitlin, let her go or I won’t help you with any more of this bullshit you think is America.”
Using Joline as a hostage, Caitlin forces Doc to cooperate. Doc demands a gene sequencer and a vampire as conditions of her assistance and gets both. The first thing she does sequence the genetic makeup of The Dark One’s blood. Then she calls Caitlin saying she’s had a breakthrough. When Caitlin gets there, Doc releases the vampire. After Caitlin is bitten (she hasn’t taken her own medicine, probably fearing the side effects), Doc kills the vampire, and then puts Caitlin out of her misery.
Doc, who has a natural immunity to vampire bites, probably hasn’t taken the repellent, so her aggressive violence can’t be blamed on that. The important thing is that Doc ran The Dark One‘s blood through the gene sequencer, and we learn from Caitlin (before she dies) that Black Tek (the company that employed both Caitlin and the late Dr. Harrison) has tendrils extending far beyond Denver.

Doc (Rukiya Bernard) and Joline (Caroline Cave) are now a couple and are living together in Denver, Doc, whose real name is Sarah Carol, works at the local hospital. Joline is also working there, pretending to be a nurse, and has a creepy co-worker named Jared (Aidan Kahn) who says he recognizes her from somewhere. He asks her out, but retreats quickly when she says her girlfriend wouldn’t like it. Jaden is the same guy who asked Vanessa out when she gave blood at the clinic in Seattle where he worked shortly before the Rising (Episode 1.2). He told Vanessa at that time that he lived only a few blocks from her. Could Jaden be more than he seems? In any event, if Joline has a past in Seattle that she is concealing, it is going to come back to haunt her. Continue reading →
