So Far the Best Episode
30 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Fet, QuInlan and Roman land in Long Island and are received by a group of vampires. They defeat the attackers and use their van. Sanjay blows up all the bridges to Manhattan to protect The Master. Setrakian and Dutch are in the museum and the weakened professor is tearing pages from the Lumen and putting them up on the wall trying to solve a riddle. Out of the blue, they overhear footsteps but they find that it is Eph and Alex. Eph examines Setrakian and believes he has a stroke. Eph and Dutch see Gus and he offers medicine to treat Setrakian under the protest of Alonso Creem. Meanwhile The Master is disappointed with Eichhorst and provokes him to hunt down Setrakian. Gus, his cousin, Eph and Dutch return to the museum but they are followed by Creem that learns their whereabouts. Eph gives blood thinner to Setrakian and tells that an excessive dose would be lethal for him since they poisoned the vampires in Philadelphia using the medicine. Then he looks for Sanjay expecting to be rewarded and he takes Creem to The Master and Eichhorst. However The Master does not accept the offer and sucks Creem, and Eichhorst heads with Creem to the hideout. Out of the blue, Setrakian is surprised by Eichhorst and Creem. What will happen to him?

"Ouroboros" is so far the best episode of "The Strain" despite the death of well-liked characters. But the absence of Zach in the show and the end of Eichhorst are great enough to guarantee the statement. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Ouroboros"
