Last week on The Strain, Fet, Quinlan, Roman, and Charlotte (Kevin Durand, Rupert Penry-Jones, K.C. Collins, Rhona Mitra) found the silo, dead men strewn about, but a live one shot Quinlan and there was a standoff. Fet tried to save everyone, but Quinlan killed the soldier. A piece was missing from the missile – new mission. Eph and Alex (Corey Stoll, Angel Parker) poisoned one of the blood trucks with rat poison, and successfully took out the strigoi in a building. The Master (Jonathan Hyde) was upset, but Eichorst (Richard Sammel) said it was a break. Zach (Max Charles) decided to help the cute maid with food, after showing her the power he had over the strigoi.

Videos are still being released, and I found these gems from FX’s The Strain.

Eph (Corey Stoll) decided to join the rebels and they came up with another plan to hurt the strigoi. Setrakian and Dutch (David Bradley, Ruta Gedmintas) were captured – Setrakian to the unknown and Dutch to a B+ blood type breeding factory, where she planned an escape that went awry.

Warning! Spoilers below for last night’s episode of The Strain!

Last week on The Strain, it is a new world in New York City after Zach (Max Charles) set off the nuclear bomb in anger at his father, Eph (Corey Stoll). “The Partnership” now rules over their human slaves. Eph does side jobs for survival, but when he is captured, decided to join the cause with the people that rescued him. Fet, Quinlan, and Charlotte (Kevin Durand, Rupert Penry-Jones, Rhona Mitra) were in search of a nuclear missile, and may have found the answer in Roman, a fellow captive (not Quinlan – he showed up after they freed themselves). The Master (Jonathan Hyde) continued to believe in Zach’s potential, despite Eichort’s (Richard Sammel) protests.

Warning! Spoilers below for the 4th season premiere of The Strain!

At the end of last season on The Strain, the humans lost the war against the strigoi. They did fight valiantly though. Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) fought his father, The Master, in a breathless confrontation. Even Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) fought on the rebels’ side until The Master “gifted” him with his presence, to Eichorst’s (Richard Sammel) dismay. Eph (Corey Stoll) finally found Zach (Max Charles) with Kelly (Natalie Brown), and killed her, causing Zach to set off the bomb that decimated the city, both with the weapon and by causing nuclear winter, allowing the strigoi to walk in daylight.

First Look at the 4th & Final Season of ‘The Strain’
Olympus Athens   |  

The Strain Season 4 Logo

The time has come for FX’s The Strain to come to its bloody end. This vampire series based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan‘s exciting trilogy was always meant to last 3-5 seasons. Sad for the fans who just want more story, but good for the story to end on a quality note. Showrunner Carlton Cuse is used to breaking my heart. He just ended one of my favorite series’ of all time, Bates Motel, with an incredible finale. I was also completely invested in The Returned, and I am a Lostie for life. At least I still have Colony. The Strain is one more notch in my TV heartbreak belt. The story of Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his band of warriors valiantly (and sometimes drunkenly) trying to fight an aggressive vampire virus and equally aggressive vampires, has been my summer go-to for that last 3 years. This “First Look” gives us the cast’s take on what is shaping up to be an explosive final season.

The Strain is also having a lot of fun on Twitter with fake Master propaganda posters. They would be funny if they weren’t so scary, both for the show and our current political climate.

Check out the video and the posters below.
