Quinlan and some girl he just met playing dress up with him is still a better love story than Twilight.

They were both on Black Sails but I don't think their characters ever actually met each other.

I enjoy this plotline because of how lame it is. Eichhorst is torturing probably a hundred or so innocent women, forcing a few dozen more doctors into work they'd never do without a gun to their head, while wasting a ridiculous amount of time, effort, and resources, just so he can have the vampire equivalent of an ice cream sundae whenever he wants

I hope when Vampire Abby finally says she'll blow Zach after he does more of his fedora bullshit to try and woo her undead rear end (because you know the Master is still gonna gently caress with this kid's head by playing hard to get), she stings him right in the dick.

Hey regular penis, guess what! PRESENTS!!!

I think the show was suggesting The Master knew Zach's lady friend was spoken for and anticipated this, but it read like an evil monster who views people as snack food gave a teen boy real honest, decent relationship advice and then the teen boy said "gently caress that" and jumped right to stalking, home invasion, and homicide/enslavement.

Anyway,can't wait for Zach's redemption arc

That was a really good episode. I wasn't expecting them to kill off the hot black woman right after she was introduced, while it took them this long to kill off an old Holocaust survivor and a 120+ year old Nazi, and god help us Zach is still alive. Why does this show have it out for all the female characters? I'm surprised Charlotte had the good sense to get the hell out of dodge.

Please don't kill Dutch.

I love that The Master gave Eichhorst an ~Inspirational Speech~ to remind him how awesome he is so he wouldn't kill himself and then Abraham argued the opposite point just before cutting off his head

I guess Desad is going to be the new Eichhorst, but he just doesn't have the smarm for it.

Heh, and the Master calls Palmer a traitor to humanity while Desai and Eichhorst are standing right loving there.

Well, I'm sad to see Eichorst go, as he was a great villain, but it was a pretty fitting way to go out and it had to come eventually. And if as it seems this is the end of Setrakian, he had an even more badass end and I'm glad he got to take out Eichorst in person. Nice to see Gus back in the fight as well.

Eichhorst was ideologically never really for team humanity.

I think it was season 1 where he gives his whole "The master is everything team Hitler was supposed to be" speech and planted his flag firmly for genocide. (that or he just realllllly doesnt like Jews and Setrakian by extension)

Palmer and Desai were more the fare weather fiend type.

I also liked the AWK-warrrrd moment when Eichorst started dissing Palmer and The Master just stared at him before basically going "naw, yeah, Palmer was a scrub. Much like you two."

That's the funny/not funny thing about Eichorst. He was so dedicated to the idea of the racial inferiority of the jews, and the worthlessness of their fake jew god, that it consumed him for decades even after he got the reveal that all humans were inferior to the superior vampire race which he'd joined up with. Human racial/ethnic/religious conflicts should be completely meaningless on Vampire Earth, but Eichorst just could not. let. it. go.

In the novel Palmer decided to kill off all humans because he never got laid.

Hay hay hay!

I'll miss that Nazi bastard. He really was the MVP of the series. No-one else was consistently entertaining like him.

Also, we had another EYEWORM moment. Christ, they love putting that poo poo in there. Who do you think had the grossest infection in the series? I'd be going with Kelly's.


Also kinda hoping Setrakian turns and becomes a Master fanatic for at least an episode. It'd be creepy AF.

Speaking of Kelly, I was catching up on Dark Matter, and a few episodes back on the aftershow they dropped the fact that the same actress plays Sarah on DM. I never noticed before.

This week's episode was so good. Abraham's parts have always been so good, they really underused him this season. I loved the switch up when he used Eichhorst's line, "watching you through me" when he asked about his god. It's so fitting for how the story ends.
