Who do you think is the worst kid on tv Joffrey Baratheon on Game of Thrones or Zach Goodweather on The Strain. Joffrey did cruel things for his own amusement, he was arrogant, vicious and damn right evil, but at least he never tried to hide it behind any phoney excuses like Zach. He set of a nuclear bomb that killed millions and now he believes that he's helping the world by supporting the Master and his Strain.

Are you ready for tonight ?

The day has come, which starts the countdown for the series finale of the show. According to the Christian Post, the official synopsis has been released by FX.

Ephraim is brooding away in Philadelphia, going down a self-destructive spiral, coping with the events unleashed nine months ago. Dutch has been imprisoned and subjected to torturous clinical trials.

Season 4 promo -- part 3

This is actually the first promo that came out for the season:


It seems to have the format of a Public Service Announcement (PSA) concerning "The Partnership" initiative which is carried out in  Eldritch Palmer Freedom Centers. Apparently the PSA employs the use of subliminal messages as can be seen in the following stills.

Being B positve, I know I am making a vital contribution to the partnership to ensure that everyone can live healthy, productive, lives. So the sacrifices are more than worth it.

Season 4 promo -- part 2

Another promo came out just recently:


Dutch seems to assisting someone in labor. The patient is undergoing a Cesarean or C-section, that is her womb is cut open slightly, to remove the child. This is usually done as a measure of last resort.

Anyway, this is the transcript of the segment:

Surgeon: Your going to feel a slight pull.
Dutch Velders: Just keep breathing.
Surgeon: Here she comes -- its all right
Patient: I want to see ...
Dutch Velders: [unintelligible]

[Soundtrack "I am the lucky one...that's me"]

Here are a few snapshots from the end of the promo, that may have gone by too fast:

It seems that our compatriot "Dutch" has been "brainwashed", and she may have under the knife. If you look closely, you can see a blue surgical drape covering her lower extremities and legs were in stirrups as if she had been subjected to a physical exam.

The disembodied voice states:

" A partnership will benefit every living creature on this planet. There will be no more violence, no crime. This is the future my friends, and it is a bright one".

Mr. Quinlan, The Master, Normal Strigoi, and the Ancients blood

(Reposting of Lostspartan009 blog entry due to clerical error )


I was wondering if Mr. Quinlan's blood contains the white's healing properties like that of the Master but without the addictive nature and the need to be re-administered. I would think he has healing blood because he can heal from almost anything. And do the normal vampires have healing worms  (/ blood) ,we see that Abe can take there worms and make his (vigor) eye drops from them, and with that I assume that the ancients can do same that the master can do.

Season 3 Trailer "Fear"

So I was watching the Season 3 trailer entitled "Fear" and I noticed that there were too many quick cuts.


For conveinence sakes, I created a slideshow for the video, so you could appreciated some of the stills.


Narrator (Off-screen): It's been twenty-three days since the world as we knew it, cease to exist
Abraham Setrakian: Denial, Fear, and Confusion reigns supreme. Paranoia has reached every corner of the globe.
Vasily Fet: If we have any hope of defeating this plague, it has to happen now or never.

The Strain - Help/Conversation/Fans

Hi everyone,

I'm new in this wiki. A month ago the strain started in Germany with the first episode. As a fan of horrormovies, books and creepypastas (an internetphenomenon/creepy horror shortstories, similar to urban legdens) I had to watch it and it absolutly blow my mind. I watched six episodes during the last two days. I just finished watching the 10th episode of the first season. There are lots of things that I really like about this show.

I found out that there are some books and comics, so my question is now:

Is the TV show about the books or the comics? I really would like to read the story too. So do I have to buy the comics or the books or both?

Maybe someone likes to discuss with me about the show. I will check the wiki chat sometim…
