Van Helsing S02E13 black days elder

Van Helsing S02E13: “Black Days” Overview

Van Helsing S02E13: “Black Days” — Dmitri meets the Sisterhood’s oracle, who will lead him to the lair of the Elder. He refuses to kneel before her, saying he only kneels to his betters. His condescending attitude does not last long as the oracle brings him to his knees. She shows him how to use the key to find the Elder’s crypt. She tells him only three may go. The oracle then starts killing Dmitri’s vampires.

Scarlett and Abigail journey toward the mountain where the crypt is located. Scarlett asks her mother what’s in her necklace. It’s the first Dark One’s blood, she answers. It was given to her just after her mother was killed by the Elders. Scarlett inquires what it is for, but Abigail does not know. She says she was experimenting on the blood when she was pregnant with Scarlett and Vanessa. Scarlett gets mad at her for exposing them to the blood. Abigail wants Scarlett to have the necklace, but Scarlett declines. She says she does not want it and that Abigail can give it to Vanessa.

Dmitri, Scab, and Ivory reach the mountain. Dmitri opens the gateway using the key.

Soon enough, Scarlett and Abigail arrive at the mountain. They see the key on the door and realize Dmitri came before them. Scarlett tests Abigail to see if she really is her mother. She asks her where the key was hidden at the Farm. Of course, Abigail knows where she hid it — behind the mural. They then enter the tunnel.

It’s a long and torturous journey towards the Elder. Scab, Ivory, and Dmitri see their greatest fears while Abigail and Scarlett see memories from the Farm, which led to them being separated. Abigail explains to Scarlett why she had left her and Vanessa.

Abigail and Scarlett arrive first at the entrance to the crypt. Dmitri is not long behind. Abigail tells Scarlett of the tale of the Elders. She says that if Elders are ever to re-join again, the coffin of the Dark One can be re-opened, and it will be the end of them all. Dmitri, Scab, and Ivory then arrive at the entrance. Dmitri notices Vanessa’s absence. He hopes that something horrible happened to her. He orders Scab and Ivory to take Scarlett and Abigail.

The mother and daughter showcase their exceptional combat skills and give the vampires a ferocious fight. But Dmitri manages to take Scarlett hostage. He threatens to kill her if Abigail won’t open the crypt. The crypt can only be opened by Van Helsing blood and in exchange for a life. Abigail, in fear of losing her daughter again, opens the crypt even if it will cost her her life. She tells Scarlett she always knew there was a price.

 “Freedom at last.” the Elder exclaims. Dmitri bows to him. The Elder recognizes Abigail and Scarlet and says they are Van Helsing but something else. Dmitri suggests he takes Abigail and Scarlett to regain his strength. The Elder approaches Scarlett and says the blood of the First flows through her veins. Dmitri recommends he takes Abigail as she is already dying. Just as when he is about to attack Abigail, Scarlett commands him to stop. Surprisingly, he heeds her command and bows before her. Scarlett gets confused. Abigail says the legend is true that when the Elder was captured, he was given a choice — fealty or death.

“Your blood is Van Helsing blood. I am sworn to protect it.” The Elder says. Until the Dark One is released from his prison or destroyed, I am your servant, he adds. Scarlett orders him to kill Dmitri to see if what he says is true. The Elder effortlessly crushes Dmitri’s head using his bare hands. He swears to never forgive Scarlett for making him do it.

Scarlett then orders the Elder to find Vanessa. He goes to do her bidding.

Abigail forces Scarlett to take her necklace before she loses consciousness. Scarlett makes her mother drink her blood in an attempt to save her.  

The Elder finds Vanessa lying unconscious in Blak Tek. He bites her. Vanessa wakes up, and her eyes turn red.

Van Helsing S01E13: “It Begins” Overview

Dmitri holds Vanessa hostage at the citadel. He tells Vanessa that something life-changing now begins and that he plans to learn everything there is to learn about her blood. He also reveals Vanessa’s true identity — she is a Van Helsing.

Dr. Sholomenko approaches the chained Vanessa. Vanessa asks him to help her, but he refuses because he wants to experiment on her. Using her blood as a weapon, he is helping to create day-walkers. He whispers to be patient and wait for her chance. He then loosens the belt tying her hand and leaves.

Meanwhile, Mohamad reunites with Sheema. Vanessa tries to escape, but Dmitri and Rebecca stop her.

Mohamad and Sheema talk about how Sheema got her room and food. She says they both could stay at the citadel. Mohamad tells her he did everything to get her out. But Sheema does not want to get out. She likes it in the citadel. Mohamad tells her he is leaving.

Dr. Sholomenko informs Dmitri, Antonasia, and Rebecca that he is ready to proceed with the removal of Vanessa’s eggs. Dmitri gives him the go signal. Dmitri asks Rebecca for any news on the Resistance. Rebecca lies to him.

At the Resistance settlement, a rumor that Vanessa is in the citadel reaches Taka. He is going back to check it out. Flesh suggests that they should attack before the vampires do anything to her.

Dr. Sholomenko brings a bag of blood to Vanessa and tells her to feed on it. Dmitri tells Vanessa that her mother also wanted to kill him. She asks him what he knows about her mother. Dmitri does not answer. Instead, he orders her to feed. Dr. Sholomenko wants to find out what effect blood has on her powers.

Mohamad visits Vanessa. Vanessa expresses her disappointment with his betrayal, saying she trusted him with her life. Mohamad apologizes and explains he had to do it. But Vanessa refuses to accept his explanation. Mohamad breaks the news that Sheema likes working for the vampires, and she does to want to leave the citadel. Vanessa says she is sorry for him because he sold his soul for nothing and asks him to go. Mohamad hands her a small knife before he leaves. Vanessa then stabs herself in the heart.

Dmitri reveals that Vanessa’s people have consistently and relentlessly hunted vampires for centuries. He expresses his admiration and respect to her great great great grandfather, Abraham. He tells her that her mother was a real warrior until she had a child. That her mother hid Vanessa before she died.

Taka arrives at the citadel. Rebecca welcomes him. Taka informs her that the Resistance is going to tear the citadel down with her help. Rebecca wants Taka to attack the citadel the next day. She wants to take Vanessa from Dmitri, so she could use her. She offers Taka an island off-limits to any vampire in exchange for his help. They agree to get rid of Dmitri first.

Vanessa is starving in her cell. She decides to finally give in and drink the blood. The blood boosts her super powers.

Taka briefs his followers on the coordinated attack. He orders them to kill everyone at the citadel. Flesh steps in and asks if he intends to kill Vanessa, too. Taka answers in the affirmative. Flesh declares that he is going to the citadel to save her, not to kill her.

Mohamad packs Sheema’s things. Sheema gets mad at him and tries to convince him that the citadel is a safer place than anywhere else. Mohamad insists that they should go. Sheema tells him that the citadel is about to be attacked, and she will help stop them. But Mohamad does not budge. Sheema then knocks him off with a vase.

Vanessa fights Dmitri. Dmitri runs before she could pull his heart out. She then fights with Rebecca. The Resistance attacks the citadel. Rebecca gets the chance to run from Vanessa. Vanessa followed suit. Taka meets with the injured Dmitri. Taka reveals to him that Rebecca betrayed him. Dmitri laughs when he learns that Rebecca offered Taka the Fox Island, saying it does not exist. Before Taka kills him, he offers Taka a deal.

Vanessa follows Rebecca to a room. She finally sees her daughter Dylan. Now a vampire, and in the hands of Rebecca.

Back at the farm, Axel emerges as a vampire.
