"Gone Smooth" The Strain episode 3 recap.

     Episode 3 puts us back on track with the shows original pace after getting some mushy character building stuff out of the way last week.  This episode had plenty of horror, action, and dare I say comedy to grab anyone thinking about dropping the show stay aboard.

With the final decision being made on Eph's custody nonsense, (because this isn't Kramer v. Kramer) out of the way we can get back to the story at hand.  The vampiric disease taking over New York City and all those directly involved.  We get to see why Jim Kent can get the thumb pushed on him by The Stone Heart Group, and we get to see who seems like the rough detective of all the characters Vasily Fet.  The Russian exterminator who, in the book seems to be the equivalent of Woody Harrelson's character in Zombieland.  His attitude alone is pretty funny in the book and it seems they may bring that to the show.

Gabriel Bolivar, the shock rocker is undergoing his transformation in the what I thought would not make it to the small screen  and the confrontation with a transformed Capt. Redfern from  Regis flight 753 ended in a way that will please most horror fans.

We'll be sticking with this one till the season finale, episode 2 had us worried but patience is a virtue and it seems worth sticking around for.  What about you?  Please comment below...
