The Strain finally weaves Gus’ tale into that of Eph, Nora and crew as he deals with the loss of his closest family and, later, runs into Eph’s son, Zach. The episode, called the Third Rail, reveals another way to dispatch of the toothy villains – with a strong electrical charge from the live subway rails – in a fun scene. Highlight of the week: Eph comes face to face with The Master who threatens to take everything from Eph before being chased away with a UV bomb built and thrown by Mr. Fet. Doc and Dave have lots to discuss as the recap episode 11 of The Strain.

    First off, credit where credit is due. Great use of the word penultimate!

    Okay, now the bad. That is sunlight in Gus’s mamma’s apartment. They actually make a point of showing the window with the blind halfway up the window. What’s up with that?

    I watched the scene with the master in the tunnel again. That guy is too funny looking to take seriously. It’s like that time Homer Simpson was eating a pet pig (bouts of crying, then eating delicious bacon). I’d be shitting my pants, then laughing hysterically, shitting my pants, then laughing hysterically… I think Eichurst is more terrifying. If one of the killer clowns from outer space had me by the neck like that, I’d be shitting my pants, then…, well, you get the idea. On the other hand, if it’s Eichursts, just pants shitting.

    Zach slipping down that sub basement. Yeah, not sure why he felt he needed to do that, anymore than I know why the vampire/ zombie didn’t get him. And did the zombie take the stairs or something? How she get u there? She much have used the freight elevator

    And I know I’m beating a dead strigoi, but THE WORMS! You were on the money. Gus doesn’t even know to avoid them, but he somehow manages to bash people in the head and stuff and he’s just fine. Kelly tries to kill one person and worm in the fucking eye! If you read the book, you’d see why I’m on a total rant about this. I mean did I mention a worm crawled up a fully dressed woman’s ass? That’s determination. That’s anal in a really bad way.

    I forgot to mention this from a previous episode, but what’s with the crazy toothy grin Fet gives the ladies? Anyway, I enjoyed the podcast.
