Willem (Dakota Daulby) transfers knowledge to Jack and Violet with a mind meld
Jack (Nicole Muñoz) and Violet (Keeya King) jump start Hansen (who was severely damaged by Bathory’s torture) with a shot of untainted human blood directly into his heart. (They use Nicholson’s blood because he isn’t a Van Helsing, and has never been a vampire.) Once awake, Willem (Dakota Daulby) puts a hand on each daughter’s head and does a sort of one-way mind meld, allowing them to see his thoughts. They learn how and why they came to be. They also become able to read the three pages Jack recovered from the back of that Bosch-like painting where Hansen had hidden them.
Rhonda Dent as Charlotte Van Helsing, who is probably Abraham’s daughter. In Stoker’s novel, Van Helsing does not have a daughter. Charlotte is the name of Bram Stoker’s mother.
Hansen, back when he was Willem, promised Abraham’s daughter (Rhonda Dent) that he would work against the Dark One from the inside. And he did that, even making use of torture and Nazi eugenics data. The question is: How is he the only vampire to be able to rebel against his vampire nature and accomplish this?
Two of the pages are instructions for opening the portal to the dark realm. The third page tells how to open a portal to this world from that place. Hansen disguises himself as Colonel Nicholson and traps Bathory. Meanwhile, Jack and Violet proceed to open the portal, but not before getting a warning from Axel (Jonathan Scarfe) that Bathory (Jesse Stanley) has something up her sleeve. Continue reading →
Violet (Keeya King) joins Vanessa at the place she had first seen her in a dream. She is surprised to find Jack there as well, and explains what she found out about Hansen (Neal McDonough) and how she and Jack were created. Jack has suspected none of this, and it makes one wonder why she was permitted to leave home. (Maybe Hansen has spent too much time masquerading as a human, and became attached to his “step-daughters”, but how and why did he choose Jack to protect by allowing her to leave?) Vanessa says that the place where they find themselves is not real, and compares it with the places where Scarlett and her mother died, making a point of saying that the unreality of these places does not mean that what happens there is any less real. (Although Scarlett’s body did disappear.) Continue reading →
In a flashback, Willem, also known as Hansen, uses the sperm of unidentified donors to fertilize the two ova that will become Violet and Jack
Hansen (Neal McDonough) has been in disguise for quite some time. Bathory (Jesse Stanley) calls him by his true name, which is Willem, and urges him to show his true form, which he does not do. (Beginning in Episode 4.8, Dakota Daulby will play a character named Willem.) It turns out that Jack and Violet are the results of in vitro fertilization of Van Helsing ova, harvested from a very young Vanessa and Scarlett by Abigail (or rather the woman who pretended to be Abigail Van Helsing in “Base Pair” and “Black Days“). The fathers are unidentified military personnel. Jack and Violet are half-sisters, and each have roughly an equal chance of being either Vanessa’s niece or her daughter. Continue reading →
