Trivia

At 31:32 Setrakian passes a store front with a sign reading "RENTAL CENTRE". The Canadian spelling is a reminder that the series is filmed in the province of Ontario, which is posing as New York City. See more »

Who is the Mysterious Vampire?

Eph decides to go to Washington expecting to meet an old friend about his research and shaves his hair in disguise. He uses fake documents and travels by train. Eph stumbles upon Dr. Barnes and they fight and Barnes fall of the train. Nora and Dutch meet Justine and negotiate the release of Fet, explaining how to identify the infected one. Setrakian meet Alonzo trying to find the Occido Lumen. The he meets Fitzwilliam tha joins his team. Fet and Dutch team up with the police to help and teach them how to fight the vampires. Meanwhile a mysterious vampire arrives at the airport.

"Quick and Painless" is the best recent episode of "The Strain", with engaging segments. The greatest question is who the mysterious vampire that arrives in New York is. The turbulent travel of Eph is also tense. Fet, Dutch and the poice squad form a great team. My vote is eight.
