So…Setrakian (David Bradley) is alive and Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) is trying to get them both to safety.  Hopefully she will take them to Gus Elizalde (Miguel Gomez).  He seems to have a good hideout and resources to help get Setrakian on his feet.  Will Setrakian make it to face the Master (Jonathan Hyde) one last time?

Eph (Corey Stoll) and Alex (Angel Parker) found New Horizons, the strigoi farming community where the only livestock are human.  Eph figured out that the Master is harvesting people for consumption.  With 7 billion people in the world, i wonder how many other harvesting plants they have?

Quinland (Rupert Penry-Jones) and Fet (Kevin Durand) stopped the convoy that carried the plutonium for their nuclear warhead.  That was a awesome fight between Quinlan and the strigoi mongrel on top of the big rig. Now they just have to get it back to New York.  And close to the Master.

And Zach (Max Charles) found a girlfriend…well…sort of. Abby, the maid, told Zach about her living conditions.  He offered to feed her and get her whatever she needs. Can he deliver?  Will his connections impress Abby (Jocelyn Hudon)?  Or will the Master find another use for Zach?

Here is the official synopsis:  – “Fet and Quinlan have to figure out how to get the nuclear bomb back to New York, while a desperate Eichhorst draws near. Love‐struck Zach tries to learn more about his new crush, but makes a devastating discovery.”
