Jack (Nicole Muñoz) vows that she and Violet will get Vanessa back
Somewhere near Denver, gladiatorial games are being held. Violet (Keeya King) and Julius (Aleks Paunovic) find one another as they wait to compete after being captured. Meanwhile, Axel (Jonathan Scarfe) has been driving around looking for Vanessa using that magic compass she gave him that points to the nearest Van Helsing. Instead of Vanessa, he finds Jack (Nicole Muñoz).
Jack tells Axel the story of Vanessa’s encounter with Dracula. Axel asks her “So you actually saw the Dark One?”, as though he had never quite believed in the existence of such a thing. Then Axel takes the opportunity to eulogize Vanessa: “She tried to do good, even if it meant doing some things that people couldn’t live with. She was fierce. She was determined. But she loved her daughter more than just about anything on the planet.” Jack responds: “I’m gonna get her back — me and my sister. And then together we’ll put an end to all of them.”Continue reading →
Shelley (Jessica McLeod) flirting with Jack (Nicole Muñoz) the night before the Rising

Jack is noticeably less drunk (or perhaps just more inhibited) than Shona (Natalie Sharp), Shelley (Jessica McLeod), Kim (Zenia Marshall), and Brittney (Matreye Scarrwener), who make up the rest of The Eagles, Jack’s college archery team. They are in Seattle for a match the following day. They don’t know it yet, but they picked the right night to break training and have some fun. 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 →
