I’m pretty convinced that I was right to be wary about this show. It’s becoming extremely episodic in nature and I’m not sure where it’s going with the story. You could literally watch the first episode and skip to this one and not miss a beat. That being said, it’s possible that this pattern changes now. I’m wondering whether the vampires are going to be the main enemy for the rest of the show. I’m basing this guess off of two things: the King of Despair (who is presumably a vampire) seems to be major character and the show was marked with the “vampire” tag from the start.
I’ll probably check out the next episode tomorrow to finally catch up with this show. From the preview, it looks like another blood manipulator just like pretty much everyone else in this show. Also, I’m assuming the female character from the preview is a member of the team or at least soon will be?
