Van Helsing S03E04: “Rusty Cage” Overview

Van Helsing S03E04: “Rusty Cage” — Sam is back at the Juvenile Detention Center. He sits by the pool as he painfully reminisces about his time spent at the facility when he was a teenager. When his father left him at the facility, Sam begged him not to and promised that he will be good. Instead, his father told him, “You are not my son. You are evil.” His father told him he will never see him again. The teenager Sam got angry and bit off his father’s index finger. That’s when his signature of cutting off the victim’s finger began.  Sam laughs at the memory.

Somewhere on a train track, Ivory and Scab hide under a train car. Humans are hunting them. With no blood for days and the sun rising in the mountains, they are too weak to fight. A group of vampires arrives and rescues them. Scarhead promises he will take care of them with one little bite. Ivory stabs his eye and kills the others. Scarhead rises from the dead and grabs Ivory’s head. He tells her he is the new breed, and he is invincible. The dead vampires around them regenerate and rise again. Scarhead then bites Ivory in the neck while Scab watches silently nearby.  

Sam remembers how he was bullied during his stay at the detention center and how a guard protected him. A mysterious woman wearing a black veil called out to the teenager Sam and said it’s time to begin. In the present, the same woman appears and tells him it’s time to end. She tells Sam to find what he needs and that the one who stands by him must be worthy.

Sam approaches the very hungry Mohamad. Mohamad demands he needs to feed. Sam teaches him how to control his yearnings. “If you control and command yourself, you have power,” he says.

Memories of the past come back flashing. The guard teaches the teenager Sam how to weld. He tells Sam that he can protect Sam while inside the facility, but he has to learn to protect himself when he goes out.

Bullies run after Sam. He hides and kills them one by one. Sam makes a big pendant out of his bullies’ teeth. The guard discovers what he did. Sam then slits the guard’s throat using the pendant. The mysterious woman orders him to keep the pendant safe for the end.

Back to the present, Sam goes back to where he hid the pendant and retrieves it. “You have what you need, but the one you choose must be worthy,” the mysterious woman whispers.

Scab goes out of hiding and goes to Ivory. He thinks she is dead, but Ivory wakes up feeling a new power flowing within her. She offers to give him the power so they can return to the Sisterhood to rule together. Ivory comforts Scab as she bites him.

Ivory and Scab return to the Sisterhood, but everything is gone. Men burned everything to the ground, and only a few sisters survived. Ivory vows vengeance and gives the power to the sisters.

At the Johnsons’ camp, supplies are running low. Mike and Chad discuss whether to bring Felix to hunt for food.

Mohamad questions Sam’s method of teaching him the vampire ways. Sam brings him to the woods to hunt. “You must hunt with power and control,” Sam says to Mohamad as they watch a group camping in the woods.  Mohamad chooses a target. He pursues his target and pins her down. Sam stops him from feeding on her. “You will be worthy,” Sam mutters.

Mike and Felix head out to hunt for food. Mike tells Felix that hunting takes practice, patience, and control. They see a deer, but Felix is not comfortable killing it. His arrow did not hit the animal.

Back at The Johnson’s camp, Mike, Chad, and the kids are enjoying Ethan’s story. Felix arrives with a deer he hunted.

Sam and Mohamad arrive at the camp. The kids run to safety, except for one little girl who runs to the underground bunkers. Felix goes to save her. Mohamad then traps Felix at the bunker. “You’re the mouse. I wanna kill you, but I must not,” says Mohamad. Felix asks him if he is the new Mohamad. I’m the only Mohamad, he answers. Sam pulls Felix out of the bunker and locks Mohamad in. Mohamad calls for Sam. Sam answers him that he is now the mouse. Sam then bites Felix, making him a vampire. “He will stand by me. He will be worthy,” Sam tells Mohamad.

In the morning, Sam and Felix hunt for food the way Sam wants it. Sam throws away his finger necklace and replaces it with the one he got from the detention center. The mysterious woman appears and instructs Sam to bring what he needs and bring the one that is worthy. “It is time,” she says.
