Van Helsing S02E03: “Love Bites” Overview

It is 1936. Julius begs Mother Agatha to give him a few more days to settle his account. He says his mother is everything to him and that she’s all he’s got. But the nun warns him that if he will not pay by morning, his mother will be discharged to his care. He then talks to his bedridden mother and promises that everything will be okay.

Julius fights in a boxing arena. He loses the match, while Dmitri watches. Julius now demands payment from a man for throwing off the fight, just like what the man asked. But the man stabs him instead. Julius then falls to the ground. He asks for his mother’s forgiveness, knowing that this will be the end of him. But Dmitri arrives. Julius asks for his help. Dmitri obliges and bites Julius.

Julius, now a vampire, visits his mother. He bites her hand, turning her into a vampire. Mother Agatha enters the room. Julius tells her that God will not be taking his mother tonight, but it is still wise for the nun to pray. Julius’ mother leaps from her bed and attacks the nun.

Back to the present, Dylan is suffering. Julius offers to help, but Vanessa refuses. He insists saying he needs to atone and that he wants to protect Vanessa and Dylan. Julius explains that young vampires must feed constantly, or else they die. He asks Vanessa why she has not tuned her daughter back to being human. She can’t, Vanessa answers. Julius offers Dylan to feed on him. He swears he can’t be turned back into a vampire anymore. Dylan feeds on Julius, but his blood grosses her out. She says it tastes like rat blood.

At the Triage, Mohamad is fighting off a fever. Jolene informs Flesh and Lucky that donating blood is mandatory. Flesh is hesitant. Mohamad warns him that he cannot go around telling people what he used to be.

Doc and Axel’s journey is not turning out well. Axel tries his hardest to control his urge to feed. He does not like Doc’s idea of feeding off of her to survive. 

At the Juvenile Detention Center, a group of juvenile delinquents is on their way to punish one of their members for his inability to kill a feral. A mysterious man observes them from a distance.

He reveals his face and answers “I am Sam. Sam I am.”. Sam attacks the group. They shot him, but Sam, strong as he is, manages to trap them all in one of the rooms. Sam then finds the punished boy.

Elsewhere, Vanessa sees a man on the road trying to fix a broken van. She approaches him from behind and points an ax on his neck. “I’m not gonna hurt you, but you have to come with me.”, she said. The man agrees. She brings him to Dylan. Upon realizing that Dylan is a vampire Daniel begs for his life. Vanessa calms him down. She tries to make him understand what she is doing and promises not to kill him. But Daniel pulls out his gun and shots Dylan. Vanessa panics and quickly cuts his throat. She then feeds him to her daughter. Daniel’s kids call for him. Vanessa is in disbelief.

Back at the Triage, people are lining up to donate blood. Lucky convinces Flesh to just get it over with. Flesh says he cannot and reveals his secret to her.

Sam discovers Felix’s wounds. He orders him to take off his sweater and to lie on the floor. Sam then draws a smiley face on his shirt with blood. Now, Felix looks just like Mohamad. Sam is happy and hugs him.

Somewhere far from the chaos, a woman rolls small maps to Crooked Falls and ties them to red helium balloons. Her companion asks her what she is doing. She explains that with the mountain crosswinds, helium balloons can travel for hundreds of miles. The further they go, the more survivors can find the maps and navigate their way to safety. The man asks him again, “what’s the point?”. She answers him that if he was down there, under the clouds, running for his life every day, he’d want to know if there’s somewhere safe to run to.  But the man believes that vampires have killed everyone and rounded up everybody else to keep as food. He is convinced that there is no one running around down there. The woman asks him, “what’s wrong with hope?” and releases the balloons.

Back at the citadel, Rebecca holds Dylan. Vanessa talks to Dylan, telling her not to be afraid. Dylan answers coldly, saying she is not afraid.

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.
