Although still burdened by a few sub-plots too many, the second season of The Strain is less meandering than the first. Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s vampire apocalypse gathers momentum here, as Eph and Nora attempt to develop a bioweapon to use against the strigoi, while Setrakian and Fet search for an ancient vampire text called the Occido Lumen, which could hold the key to stopping the infestation. Del Toro and Hogan continue to reinvent vampire lore in creative and grotesque ways, including a chilling prologue that reveals the the Master’s origins (but not why he’s kinda goofy looking).
