    The show starts with Blade chasing down a lead. The vamps are planning something - a Yuppie Vamp named Van Scivers is setting a base up in Detroit. Blade's answer to everything is violence - and it's far more graphic than anything in, for instance, Highlander: The Series!

    In Detroit, a gorgeous female US soldier named Krista wants revenge on the people who killed her brother. Turns out it was some yuppies who are actually vamps.

    Krista goes after the vamps, but they try to turn her into one of them.

    Blade tries to rescue her, but the vamps are expecting him.

    The plot is mediocre, but the action is very well-done. This is a very pumped-up version of Angel!

    Blade is captured by a gang of rogue vamps called the Bad Bloods. This is a wonderful pun, and works on several levels. The Gaelic word for Bad Blood resembles the word Dracula, made famous by Irish writer Bram Stoker. Also, these vamps are African-American ...

    Their leader is Bokeem Woodbine [The Big Hit], but it used to be - Blade himself! Yes, young Blade was the one who turned the street-gang into vamps!

    Meanwhile, Marcus sends Krista to the House of Leichen to get their assistance. Their tech and magic will help track a rogue vamp Krista created.

    Krista tries to cure her mother's cancer - by Embracing her! Unfortunately old mama is hungry enough to eat everyone she knows, and warrior enough to defeat the specialist Cthon rogue vamp clean-up crew! And she's the least civilised vamp in this show - so far, anyway.

    Krista confronts Marcus. Instead of just ashing her, he shows her how he became a vamp. This shows why he hates purebloods so much, and makes him a much more understandable character. And by strange coincidence, he gets some closure this ep!

    Blade's worried when she doesn't contact him, so he steps up surveillance on Cthon.

    The villain is Gilles De Rais, a French medieval serial killer who wakes to claim new victims every few decades. And compared to him, the House vamps are nice and civilised.

    Meanwhile, the Pureblood girl tries to persuade Chase to work for her, against Marcus.
