ARGH Lily back in Victor's hands put there by Dorian. I can see why Dorian would do that though. His house taken over by this "army" and now threatening him in his own home while Lily plays den mother. But all of these men saying they can "cure" Lily of her independence, of her identity, it's truly revolting. I agree with whoever said that Victor maybe the most monstrous of them all.

Oh and Vanessa going to the dark side. So disappointing. Last time she met Dracula she slapped him around. What a come down.

Thanks for posting, I watched the Tonys on Sunday, just got around to watching this episode tonight.

Only two episodes left, airing back-to-back on Sunday, and no Mr. Hyde yet - I wonder if Jekyll will get zapped by Victor during the attempt to 'cure' Lily, that would be some nice poetic justice.

I think the plot against Lily is going to backfire somehow. Zapping Jekyll there is a good theory, or maybe Lily gets it but it doesn't work the same on her due to her undead status.

I'm not sold on Vanessa's decision there.

I'm not entirely sold either as the egyptologist told her what's necessary is a spy not a soldier. Still...according to katenay she was already half gone.

Did anybody else think the Creature's wife's emotional response to his return was a little off or oddly attenuated or... something? Like, were the circumstances of his death ever established, or is it possible she... Ah, that would be a bummer.

I would really enjoy it if Lily mustered her undead super-strength, tore off that leg chain, and just knotted up the three bro's limbs together in some kind of abominable human rat-king situation.

We still don't know how the Creature died. I didn't even suspect the wife. Oh Christ. I was happy he finally had a good moment.

FYI, the episode tonight is the finale, it's two hours long and starts at 9pm EST, so adjust recording devices if need be.

My DVR stopped recording right at the moment that Vanessa pulled the gun. Argh!!! What happened? in the last minute of the show?

RMS Umbria was a real ship. I am uncertain as to the year setting for this episode (yes, it was on the tombstone, I am still watching and don't want to rewind just yet). However, for some period of the history of the ship it was the largest ship in the world (The Great Eastern to the side).
