The gang is almost entirely reunited, but not with Vanessa, and not for long. Jolene (Carolyn Cave) and Doc (Rukiya Bernard) finally get back together, and Julius (Aleks Paunovic) is brought to Crooked Falls by a puzzled, scar-faced vampire who wants to know why this particular human won’t turn into a vampire when bitten. Young Callie turns up as well, having somehow acquired the ability to repair electronics.
Callie shows Jesse how to repair the radio, and this seems like a good thing, until she gives their co-ordinates to the first person she contacts. (The sound of a helicopter approaching at the end of the episode prompts Axel to exclaim “damned apocalypse!” Could this be the same helicopter that was used to kidnap Vanessa in episode 2.9?

Jesse (Jesse Fraser) launches balloons containing directions to Crooked Falls
Remember when Mohammed (Trezzo Mahoro) was looking for his sister last season? He found her but was unable to accept that she was a voluntary vampire collaborator. This time a large chunk of the Citadel falls on Sheema (Naika Toussaint), fatally injuring her. She asks Mohammed to find Dimitri or Rebecca so that they can turn her into a vampire and save her life. She asks him several times and is quite clear about what she wants, but Mohammed still can’t accept it. He kills her instead of helping her. Last season, Mohammed betrayed Vanessa to find Sheema. This season, having found his sister, he betrays her wishes. Continue reading →
