[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

Only two episodes left this season on The Strain, and I am so glad we already know they’re coming back, because I’m really not done with these characters. The gang (minus Kelly + Feelers) is all here for the penultimate episode, which has major characters making major choices, and sets the stage for a finale that I can’t believe will only be 44 minutes. I hope it’s extra-long, because there’s a lot to resolve.

Look for Dutch to flail a bit following her abduction, Setrakian to make arrangements for the Lumen, Feraldo to move up, Palmer to learn exactly where he stands with the Master and Eichorst, Gus and Angel to team up on a supply run, and Eph, Nora, and Zack to reach a crossroads. We also revisit how Eph and Nora met and get a memory lane visit from an old friend.

It’s a solid episode that lays the groundwork for the finale, where we know (because, come on, really) the Master won’t be defeated just yet, but I am betting we will have a mega reveal on Quinlan’s stake in the conflict. My only nit is that I wanted more of Dutch and Fet. We do have one scene with them, but it’s not enough. I want more of them together, and more of her really articulating her PTSD to him, because there will most definitely be repercussions to work through.

The Strain airs at 10/9c Sundays on FX. Here’s a sneak peek.
