With only three episodes left after tonight, The Strain is starting to tie up some loose ends, as well as plant some new plotlines for next season. Unfortunately, one of those loose ends has met a violent end that turns into a dark beginning.
Last week on The Strain, we were treated to an hour-long set piece, as our heroes were trapped in a gas station for a good portion of the night. We also saw the group power dynamic change as Vasily Fet officially joined the Setrakian hunting party. This week, it's business as usual, which is both good and bad.
With just five episodes to go after tonight, The Strain has gone all out with this week's exciting episode! Unfortunately for one major character, the gas station will always be their final place of resting.
Last week on The Strain, the eclipse finally occurred and the equilibrium in the game has changed. Vampires are slowly but surely taking over, and the window for defeat is shrinking. Tonight's episode was a perfect example of what happens when you stay true enough to the book to please fans, while at the same time adding enough new material into the mix to be different.
The Strain is here to stay. Just days after its sixth episode aired, FX has announced that they're renewing the series for a second season. The announcement states that the second season will consist of thirteen episodes. Also announced is the news that Season 1 of The Strain will be available on DVD and Blu-ray December 2. Hey, just in time for the holidays!
Last week on The Strain, we witnessed the vampiric infection make itself known in the survivors of Flight 753. With Gabriel fully turned, and Joan on her way out, it looked as if The Master's plan was gaining steam. Tonight's episode had the most intense dispatching of a vampire that we've ever witnessed, and it wasn't even the beginning of the madness on display tonight.
With time running out before the pivotal solar eclipse, good and evil are rushing to raise their armies. One side has a better hand than the other, and it looks like all bets will close soon.
As the eclipse draws near, Eph and his team are running out of time to avert disaster. Which means now's a good time to have the traitor in your midst engage in an attack of conscience.
If you thought last week's episode of The Strain played it too safe and slow, then you're going to love this week's change of pace. The darkness is growing, as well as the infection, and before the night is over, another skull is going to get caved in.
Week two of The Strain has shifted gears to personal stories instead of last week's more wide spread scope. But can it still maintain the momentum gained in Night Zero?
The Strain is here, and along with it an extended premiere of horror. If you were one of those people that freaked out at the billboards, you might want to read this recap before going into the waters.
FX has done a fine job of creeping us all out with their promotions for Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's new horror-drama The Strain. Having seen the first four episodes of the series, to put it simply, the ads are actually pretty tame by comparison to some of the disturbing events that transpire in the first few episodes of this bloody, creepy series.
FX has lined up their Comic-Con plans, announcing panels and signing booths for some of their popular series. Archer, American Horror Story, Sons of Anarchy and their upcoming new drama The Strain will all be featured with panels at the San Diego convention set to take place later this month.
It's one thing to use a creepy-gross poster to market a horror series online, but it's apparently quite another to take the same approach with billboards. FX's billboard for The Strain succeeded in getting people's attention, but it wasn't getting the right kind of attention, as complaints about the disturbing image of a worm working its way into an eyeball yielded enough complaints to cause the networks to take them down.
Fargo and The Strain are getting the Mondo poster treatment, courtesy of the ATX Television Festival and FX. The new posters have been presented in anticipation of the world premiere episode for The Strain and the ninth episode screening of Fargo at the Austin festival this weekend.
