I'm sure some of this is in the second thread that I will be headed to next, but since I try to keep comments in appropriate threads-

I was absolutely sure that Catriona and Sir Malcolm were gonna get it on when he woke up from the cauterization.

WE FINALLY FIND OUT HOW ETHAN BECAME A WEREWOLF SORT OF. At least we found the point of infection although not why or when or how.

I find it hard to believe that Lily's memory of her daughter would move Victor. It strikes me in keeping with his character that Victor would see removing this memory as a boon. How Victor of all people could be penetrated by this story, I have no idea. But it does seem like that is how this season will end, random decisions with little in terms of internal motivation. (See also, Justine's disappointing desire to "die on her feet" and Vanessa's "Ok Dracula go for it.")
