Van Helsing S03E07: “Hunted Down” Overview

Van Helsing S03E07: “Hunted Down” — The Sisterhood, with Ivory’s persuasion, accepts Scab to their order. Ivory performs an initiation rite to make Scab one of them. She puts a cross on his head, then cuts his manhood.

Vampires attack Axel’s camp. He comes just in time to save and encourage his group to fight for their lives. Everyone survives the attack except Kristina, who turns into a vampire.

Meanwhile, Mohamad is still trapped in the underground bunker. He feeds on mice to survive. He tries to escape but couldn’t. Cara appears in his hallucinations and tells him to remember what Sam used to say — follow the mouse. Mohamad does as he’s told. He finds a small hole under the bed and starts making his way out.  

Elsewhere in the woods, a group of survivors is hunting Felix down. They think they cornered the vampire, but Sam appears, and they realize they just walk right into a trap. Sam and Felix savor their killing spree.

The Oracle appears and calls Sam. She tells him it is his time. “For?” Sam asks. She orders him to remember the time when she first came to him, the time he first killed. She tells him it is his time to be the “next” and that he knows what he must do — kill the one he loves. Sam turns around and strangles the sleeping Felix. The Oracle laughs and tells Sam “No. That is not the one you love.” Sam then wails in agony.

Mohamad has finally made a hole big enough for him to pass through. He finally escapes from the bunker and goes to find Sam.

Axel and his group are on their way to Denver. They encounter another group of survivors with a flat tire. Axel offers to help them. They tell Axel they are going to San Francisco. Axel informs them San Francisco is overrun by vampires. Their leader insists that they have some intel about a ship going to Hawaii and they plan to pay their passage with the ore they brought. Axel suggests they should just follow them to Denver. Their leader refuses. Axel talks to the pregnant woman in the group and asks her if that’s what she really wants to do. The leader brings out his gun and points it at Axel. “Fix the tire then go away,” he says. Axel, without hesitation, throws a knife at the man’s throat. The women in the group choose to go with Axel.

Axel and his group continue their journey to Denver. He makes friends with a pregnant woman named Kit. He gives her his last pack of Kit-kat. Axel asks her about the baby’s father. She says it’s one of two guys and uses Axel’s famous like to shut him up, “end of discussion.”

Kristina goes to Scarhead and informs him about the people gathered in Denver. Scarhead screams to call on to the other vampires. The Sisterhood heeds Scarhead’s call. Scarhead tells Ivory about the humans in Denver and his plan to go there. But Ivory has other plans. She pulls out Scarhead’s heart, killing him. “Strong plan. Weak leader. The Sisterhood rules you now!” she screams. The vampires rejoice.

Vanhelsing everything changes

Van Helsing S02E07: “Everything Changes” Overview

Van Helsing S02E07: “Everything Changes” — In a flashback, Dmitri is running away from someone. But whoever is running after him catches up to him. “Van Helsing. So, we meet again.”, he says.

Dmitri is locked up in the Farm. A doctor and military men keep him hostage. He is subjected to experiments before someone helps him break out of the facility.

Back to the present, Vanessa and Scarlett face Dmitri and his army. Dmitri reveals that at the time he was held prisoner in the Farm, twin girls were crying at night. One more a vampire than the other, but both born of the same blood — Van Helsing blood.  He tells them that they do not know their destiny. He orders his army to take the sisters. Vanessa and Scarlett put up a ferocious fight, but they are outnumbered. Vanessa gives the key to Scarlett and tells her to guard it with her life. She then drinks Scarlett’s blood, which boosts her powers more than any other human blood.  Her boosted fighting skills and Scarlett’s wit give them the advantage to escape Dmitri’s grip.

Scab, Dmitri’s minion, is brought to the sisterhood’s lair. He tries to convince their leader, Maya, about Dmitri’s request. Maya laughs at him and threatens to kill him. He tells her about Vanessa’s ability to change vampire back into being human. Maya still does not budge because Dmitri used her and killed his sisters. She throws Scab away. Scab crawls back to her feet. Maya picks him up. He then stabs her throat with a wooden crucifix. The rest of the sisterhood vows allegiance to him.

Flesh, Lucky, and Mohamad are still in the woods looking for Vanessa. Flesh is frustrated that the ambulance-turned-armored-vehicle is gone. It turns out, Doc and Julius beat them to it.

Doc and Julius arrive with Wanda, the vehicle from the hospital in Seattle. They meet Scarlett for the first time. Axel is not doing great, but Vanessa still refuses to bite him. Axel grabs a gun and threatens to kill himself if Vanessa still won’t do it. Vanessa is left with no choice. So she bites Axel. He then turns into a human again. But wait, he collapses and loses consciousness. Doc and Vanessa try to revive him, but they fail — Axel dies.

Doc and Julius dig Axel’s resting place while Vanessa kisses Axel goodbye. The group bids farewell to Axel then buries him.

The group is still devastated over losing Axel. They talk about the awakening of an Elder and try to decide on whether to destroy the key or not.  But Vanessa hears something. He orders Julius to drive back. Vanessa runs towards Axel’s grave and starts digging. Scarlett claims she can hear it too and helps Vanessa. Vanessa opens Axel’s body bag. He is still dead, but she swears she hears his heartbeat. Surprisingly, Axel wakes up from the dead.

Vanessa and Axel enjoy their happy reunion. They talk about how things went after they got separated. Axel and Doc also settle their issue. Axel now forgives her for what she did to him. Scarlett divulges to Vanessa that after she bit her, everything changes. Vanessa wonders if Scarlett can turn people back too. Scarlett asks her what they will do with the key. Vanessa advises her to keep it. Vanessa does not know what to do with the Elder calling to her.

Sam watches Flesh, Lucky, and Mohamad from afar. The group finds a place to rest in. Mohamad’s wounds still bleed, and he relies on cocaine to ease the pain. Lucky suggests they re-dress his wounds and get rid of his shirt. Flesh volunteers to dispose of his shirt and the bandages. Mohamad refuses to let go of his favorite shirt. But he has no choice because his bloody shirt will attract vampires.

Flesh dumps the shirt and bandages on the river. He hears shots from Mohamad and Lucky’s direction. Mohamad is gone. Lucky says a vampire took him. Sam is happy to see his Mohamad again.

Vanessa’s group rests for the night. Axel is on guard duty while everyone sleeps. Vanessa, Scarlett, Doc, and Julius see the same vision in their dreams. They all see the mountain with the red sky. It seems that it is where the Elder is buried. Vanessa plans to beat Dmitri there and kill the Elder. Sounds like a good plan. But a helicopter arrives at their location. Axel runs towards it, saying it is military. The helicopter drops gas that knocks them all out. Armed and masked men get off from the Helicopter. Axel tries to fight them. Their leader talks to the dazed Vanessa and tells her that they have been looking for her for a long time. He reassures her not to worry because they are here to help. They take her away, leaving the rest of the group behind.

Van Helsing S01E07: “For Me” Overview

At the citadel, Dmitri talks to Dr. Sholomenko about his experiments in his laboratory and Rebecca’s business with Sheema. A vampire spy reports to Dmitri on Julius’ failure to keep Vanessa and his plan on betraying Dmitri. Dmitri kills the vampire with his bare hands.

Elsewhere, Mohamad has managed to keep himself alive. He sees vampires attacking some members of Brendan’s group. Mohamad hides under the bridge while Catherine is being murdered. He approaches the dying Catherine to ask what happened after he was banished. She died before she tells him about Vanessa.

Back at the hospital, Doc is still trying to figure out what is wrong with Vanessa. Julius and his vampires arrive at the hospital and are about to stage an attack. Axel and the group try to make a stand. Doc and John revive Vanessa and finally makes a breakthrough. With John’s help, she pulls out the vampire’s tooth in Vanessa’s leg. Meanwhile, the vampires infiltrate the hospital. Axel’s booby traps stop them from getting to Vanessa.

Mohamad uses the weapons he found to warn the people in the hospital of the impending attack by Dmitri’s elite death squad.  Julius’ group retreats. Dmitri’s elite death squad demands that Axel and the group surrender Vanessa. Everyone panics. Axel could not devise a plan to defend themselves and breaks down. There is only one trick left on his sleeves — to abandon ship. With Axel’s surprisingly well-laid escape strategy, they drive their way to safety. For now.

They left Mohamad behind.
