Mr. Quinlan and the Annoying Triangle of Love
19 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dutch goes to her apartment to bring clothes with Fet and they meet Nikki hidden in the spot. There is a problem of relationship among the trio. Setrakian and Fet go to Palmer´s factory and find that it is a nest of the vampire children They are attacked but the mysterious vampire called Quinlan, who was a gladiator in the Rome Empire, saves them. Fet blows up the place and The Master escapes from the trio, frustrating and upsetting Quinlan. Eph returns from Washington and has the intention of killing Palmer.

"The Born" introduces the good vampire Quinlan, a promising character. The triangle of love Fet, Dutch and Nikki and the spoiled Zach are the annoying segments of "The Strain". Coco and Palmer together are also irritating. My vote is eight.
