Blade repaid his adopted bro's by turning them all into vampires. Not nice -- but remember he was just a kid. The ganstas don't let him forget that, and keep calling him "little one" which has to hurt at least as much as does the beating he takes. Also, seems getting turned by Blade makes you persona-non-grata in the undead community - so these dudes have been hunted into near-extinction by Chthon and the other vampire Houses. Now the Bloods want to trade Blade to Marcus in exchange for peace in our time. Great! Just what I needed, another faction to try and keep track of. But it's a pretty cool wrinkle added to Blade's history, and anyway, the gang looks to be history itself after tonight.
Meanwhile, Krista, for her half of the episode, is still pained, conflicted, and smoking hot.
Platinum-blonde vampire Chase is back to hating and resenting Krista fulltime this week, while platinum-blond vampire CEO Marcus helps that relationship along by continuing to insist that his two main squeezes spend every waking moment together. This time, the undead princesses catch a flight to a new-agey vampire zen retreat located in (where else?) Oregon. Namaste! Now, I get why we've been following bad cop (and worse vampire) Boone's progress along the interstate as he drinks blood from truck stop to truck stop. I had missed or forgotten that Boone was Krista's first kill. Marcus wants Chase to make Krista track down Boone so that she can ash him (or something) and this will really cement her to the dark side. Er, I think. To that end, Krista get a nice soak in tomato juice, which looks like it is going to get up in her nose and everything.
My man Shen has a nice essential role this week for once, and comes in to save Blade and the day. Now the dynamic duo can get back to whatever they were doing last week, and the pediatrician who blew his own brains out the minute he glimpsed Blade on the clinic's security monitor.
There are 9 episodes left this season. I'm committed now to watching the entire run, but I am really curious to know ... what do you guys think? Will you keep watching?
And before I forget, last week Gordon Werner mentioned he hasn't seen any Jill Wagner (who plays Krista) Mercury Ads recently. Has anyone else? Or has Jill's spokes-chick gig ended?
