Van Helsing Episodes
The safe haven of Denver was fun while it lasted. It’s just too bad no one
wanted to listen to the myriad warnings about a new breed of day-walking vampire
until it was too late. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves …
This week was very much all about pushing those members of the party who aren’t
Van Helsings out of their comfort zones and back into the action and it starts with
Flesh/Phil getting resurrected once again, though it took a lot longer to come back
from a giant fall than it did a gun shot. While Julius rejoices at his friend’s return,
however, Doc and Jolene discover there are consequences for telling people about
the rage inducing side effects of the vampire repellent. Jolene gets thrown in prison,
and Doc is blackmailed into helping the Powers That Be create a new serum with a
less murdery result. She agrees, but asks for a gene sequencer, which she definitely
doesn’t plan to use for the serum.
Out on the road, Axel is concerned about Scarlett’s wellbeing, but he doesn’t really
have time to dwell on it because the pregnant woman they picked up a couple weeks
back is about to be a lot less pregnant and someone sent their only doctor to
Colorado. As unborn children are wont to do in situations like these, the infant is
coming out sideways, and despite Axel’s best efforts, he can’t get her to turn around.
At the pleading of the mother, he performs a terrible field c-section and frees the
baby, killing the mother in the process.
Finally, they arrive in Denver, and Axel sends the rest on their way while he turns
around to head to his and Scarlett’s meeting place alone. Too bad he didn’t stick
around, though, because the Sisterhood is just nearby, about to storm the castle.
Inside the city, and blissfully unaware of what’s coming, Julius makes a move on
Frankie, who accepts. Meanwhile, Flesh goes to find where his wife has ended up
and discovers that she’s been shipped off to a prison camp from which there is no
return. Naturally, he shoots a guard and gets himself arrested. All of this is
happening while Doc also attempts to mount a prison break of her own, killing the
woman in charge and stealing her key card which will allow her access to Jolene’s
cell. Only that cell is empty because there are daywalking vampires running amok in
Denver and no one is safe.
Doc manages to escape and find the bus taking all the prisoners to the camp but is
unable to stop it in time. Two of Axel’s party manage to hide just long enough, baby
in tow, to save themselves from a biting and make a break for it. Julius, meanwhile,
nearly makes it all the way out with Frankie before they are jumped by Scab, who
harbors a deep hatred for his former boss, and Frankie is killed.
So, who wants to break into a prison camp?
