The vampires attend their first human Super Bowl party, while Guillermo's search for virgins uncovers a deadly threat.

What We Do in the Shadows Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Brain Scramblies -- What We Do in the Shadows' vampires beat the point spread at a Super Bowl party, but their familiar uncovers pointy tools at a virgin gathering. (Tony Sokol for Den of Geek)
“Brain Scramblies” observes a sacred event. The vampires of Staten Island are invited to the venerable celebration of the Superb Owl. Conspiracy theorists might think they recognize this from reports of the billionaire parties at Bohemian Grove, where a statue of such a wondrous bird guards with the warning “Weaving Spiders come not here.” Spiders drink blood just like vampires, so you can imagine the honor of getting such a coveted invitation.
Soundtrack to the episode from Tunefind.

There was such a strange sweet/dark thread running through this episode — Nadja's friendship with the old woman, and Lazlo's affection for his friend. And, to end it with Nadja saying she'd just get her necklace back when they were dead was just a satisfying final note.

I love Guillermo's van Helsing ancestry and how he apologizes for familiars.

If the show used special FX money to put that flare in Colin's eye when he sees the bickering couple, it was money well spent.

I've been trying to come up with a good 2020 Superb Owl Party design.
