    This episode is another step away from the violent vampire actio

    This episode is another step away from the violent vampire action that you see in the previous episodes, but it does show a lot more insight into the individual lives of the Socoli family, Armando and some of Vanora’s thrown in. The character development flourishes in this episode, and though it fills up some space in the story and holds back on the violence we all love to read about, it tosses in the emotional fragility of everyone close to the Socoli family, which is vital to become attached to all of them.

    Vanora is growing up and is now a young lady, with very womanly curves and thoughts. Armando continues to be a mystery, though his home life with his longtime lover Carlotta gives us some insight of his actual personality, the way he lives and his preferences.

    The most touching part of this episode is Alisha’s sacrifice. We all knew it was coming but her heartache is dire and I do love how she continues on with the poise of a true warrior, even if her heart is broken.

    We also got a lot of insight into Vanora’s human side of her family when she visits her uncle and aunt, which is refreshing and worlds away from her life back home in the Socoli mansion. It’s like she could almost forget about the vampires and dangers lurking at her family’s mansion, even if it was just for the summer.

    Armando’s gift was surprising and what happens afterwards was also anticipated but yet a bit shocking. Vanora’s reaction was very natural and I was sad to see her feelings hurt.

    Overall an interesting episode setting up for the season finale next. I can’t wait to see what will happen next.
