Well, you just knew it was going to happen, and since this is the penultimate episode of the season (really?! Wow, that was fast …) it makes sense that it happens now. Shit gets real, and everybody has to face up to their bad decisions … although they then go ahead and make even worse decisions. They’ve all hit bottom, but by god, they’re going to keep on digging.
I’m not sure we needed the opening flashback to World War Two, where vampire Ivan meets the human Daisy in a bomb shelter, but it gives us a last glimpse of Ivan so I guess I shouldn’t complain. Yes, you guessed it, somehow Mitchell is the only survivor of the bombing last episode, because Ivan saved him. (How? But I’m just going to let it pass, because we know the real reason is “Mitchell is a lead character”
). Crazy Daisy comes looking for Ivan, and then she wants revenge when she discovers he’s dead. Mitchell’s in a revenge mindset too, but his initial thought is that the police did it in retaliation. Good guess, but wrong.
