"Occultation" is the sixth episode of Season 1 of The Strain. It first aired on August 21st, 2014.


Occultation: The passage of one celestial body in front of another, thus obscuring the other from view, in this particular case, it is where the moon temporarily blocks the sun, otherwise known as a solar eclipse.

Extra piece of trivia, a lunar eclipse is where the moon is blocked by the earth's shadow.

A social occultation is the imposition of cultural and/or media blackout surrounding events in society.


Vasily Fet: Something evil has taken root. Some disease. Some horrible, horrible strain. A pestilence that's overrunning the city. It's turning people into hungry vermin.

Thomas Eichhorst: What I find fascinating is how love is considered a gift, A blessing, with no acceptance to the fact that it also binds And chokes and strangles.

Augustin "Gus" Elizalde: What are you?
Thomas Eichhorst: I am your salvation or your downfall. Your choice.
