Mimi’s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), who might be suffering from exposure to alien technology.
Mimi‘s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), the guy who chased a UFO with his plane in Episode One. He has been following Mimi in an effort to speak to her husband. Fuller is not a well man, and when Mimi does not humour him in his paranoia, he decides she is one of his enemies. Fortunately, Susie has been listening in through that bug she had planted. (The mike they installed was quite sensitive. It picks up Mimi’s kitchen conversation clearly, though it is located in the study.) Susie shows up with a gun and chases Fuller away. Her timely arrival makes Mimi a bit suspicious, but she decides not to question her rescuer’s motives, at least not very closely. Continue reading →
Ivory (Jennifer Cheon) about to be bitten by a Daywalker she thought she had killed.
Ivory (Jennifer Cheon) and Scab (Rowland Pidlubny) are still making their way back to The Sisterhood from the caves where the Van Helsing twins found The Elder. Weakened by hunger, they are rescued from predatory humans by some of Dr. Harrison’s modified vampires (called Daywalkers because they are unaffected by sunlight). These creatures show amazing ability to recover from injury. Ivory puts a steel rod through the brain of one of them, and a railway spike in the eye of another. Both recover from their injuries in a matter of minutes. The leader of the Daywalkers bites Ivory and transmits his healing power to her.
Scab prepares to be bitten (theraputically) by Ivory
Ivory similarly transmits the power to Scab as the two of them lie on the railway tracks in front of the tank car under which they had been trapped. The tank car has a white poison placard (number 2312), and the interesting thing about that is that Kim Stanley Robinson wrote a novel titled 2312 about a city on Mercury called Terminator that was built on tracks so it could always remain in the planet’s habitable zone. In the novel, a meteorite, which turns out to be of artificial origin, destroys the tracks, cooking the city in the heat of the sun. The presence of this placard could be meant to suggest that the volcanic event that caused VAN HELSING’s vampire apocalypse was intentionally triggered. Continue reading →
After the death of her mother, Abigail (Brianna Deutsch) receives a vial containing the blood of The First. In this photo, Abigail looks to be about ten years old. She gave Scarlett to the Harkers about thirty years ago. If her mother was killed by The Elders when she was ten, The Elders must have been entombed during the 1960s.
Scarlett (Missy Peregrym) and Abigail (Andee Frizzell) hike through the mountains toward the Elder’s tomb. Dimitri, Scab, and Ivory are also headed there. At the insistence of her mother (the real Abigail, not the imposter from Episode 2.10), they stop to rest, and Scarlett notices a pendant on her mother’s neck.
SCARLETT:“What is that on your neck?” ABIGAIL:“Blood. I’ve been wearing this since I was a kid.” SCARLETT:“That’s creepy. Whose is it?” ABIGAIL:“It’s blood from the dark one. The first.” SCARLETT:“The dark one?” ABIGAIL:“Don’t say his name. Legend has it he can hear it.” SCARLETT:“You don’t really think that he’s alive?” ABIGAIL:“Yes, I do. I was given this just after my mother was killed by the elders.” SCARLETT:“So my great-grandmother gave that to you. Why? What for?” ABIGAIL:“I don’t know. It’s supposed to have some kind of special powers, but they haven’t… I was experimenting on this when I was pregnant with the two of you. I was trying to find a cure.”Continue reading →
