The Strain Episode 6 Recap: Total Eclipse Of The Heart

The episode opens with Eichorst (sans nose and makeup) dining on some poor guy he fattened up with candy bars and Gatorade. Mental note to self: Stop eating junk food immediately! 

For those who are interested, the title "Occultation" is just a fancy word for an eclipse. Since FX marketed this episode as the beginning of the end. I must say I was a bit underwhelmed. Vamps did not chase people through the streets in mass. But at least they became a bit more visible. 

The police/feds are after Eph. He warns his ex wife and son to get outta town. Kelly's loser boyfriend calls the FBI. Off to jail they go. They're stuck in traffic when the medical examiner (remember him?) reappears and throat sucks the cops. Eph manages to unlock his handcuffs and RUN!!!! Meanwhile Kelly's boyfriend (I refuse to learn his name) may not be long for this world. Good I say! Will Kelly and Zach make it out of season 1 alive? Not if she continues to take time out to hang with her BFF (who incidentally is Detective Angie from "Orphan Black"). 

Gus and Felix meet up with Eichorst. They quickly learn he is not to be trifled with. Extra bonus points for Jim and Gus trying to dispose of Eichorst's latest victim. Dude, NEVER unzip a body bag. That was pretty funny when Jim tried to cram that stinger back in the bag. And seriously throwing a body with infected worms into a public waterway doesnt seem very hygienic to me (but again I dont work for the CDC). 

Abe goes into the house of a recently deceased person and finds all the vamps in the basement. Abe, has no one ever told you NOT to go in the basement during horror shows? He barely escapes and drops his heart medication. Please dont let Abe die! The world needs him.

Fet the exterminator continues to be the smartest guy on this show. He goes back to his office to find his boss and coworker are now vampires. He opens the blinds and they're scorched. Dear coworkers: I like ya but if you turn into blood thirsty vampires, you're toast. And poor Fet has daddy issues too. Why will no one believe these people? It's very frustrating.

Nora and her mom leave their apartment. They are  reunited with Eph at Abe's place. Has Nora finally decided that killing vamps is a good idea? 

Grade: 4 Monsters (out of 5). I know some complained of the show's slow pace and extra miscellaneous scenes. But I dont care. I'm still loving it.
