  • On the mean streets of Detroit, an ancient evil is growing bolder by the day. The House of Chthon is on the verge of eliminating the final barriers to their supremacy over mankind, and only the Daywalker can stop them. Half human, half immortal. His only allies are a master weaponsmith and a woman obsessed with revenge against Chthon. And he will stop at nothing to win his war, because he is the ultimate vampire hunter. His name is Blade.moreless

    • Krista: I was just at his apartment and there was this man there going through his stuff. Boone: Oh, yeah? What'd he look like? Krista: Black, dressed in black... Boone: Oh, black? That narrows it down.

    • Krista: Can I see my brother's file? Boone: No. Krista: Maybe I could help. I was a Sergeant in the Army. Boone: Yeah, well, this ain't the Army.

    • Krista: Where's Zack? Uncle Pat McCallum: He was arrested last week. Listen, I'm thinking we should all sit down, have a nice long talk before he winds up in prison. Lisa Starr: Waste of time. Krista: Mom, he's not a bad guy. He's just a little lost. Lisa Starr: Why do you always defend him? Krista: Because nobody else will!

    • Marcus: The House of Chthon has a lot of locked doors. Doors meant to hold my secrets. You've been peeking through a lot of keyholes, Zack. Too many.

    • Blade: You can go. Russian General: You're kidding, yes? Blade: Yes. (chops his head off)

    • Blade: It's a disaster. Shen: Just the way you like it. Barbed windows, plenty of space and if we get bored there's a ping-pong table in the back. I know how much you love ping-pong. Come on, I've taken you to half a dozen sites that could be sealed up tighter than a frog's ass - you pissed on every one of 'em. You said we had to move fast. Blade: We do. Shen: Well, then pick a place to throw down your damned sleeping bag!

    • (after Marcus suddenly appears out of nowhere) Boone: Don't pull that Dracula shit- sneaking up on people. I almost crapped myself.

    • Krista: Stay the hell away from me. Marcus: Oh, I know you're scared. You think of us as sociopaths who just walked out of a nightmare.

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Proměna (Transformation)

    • Robert Habros, Kevin Little, Greg Hansen, Aaron Brown and Stu McRae were nominated for the 2007 Leo Award for "Best Visual Effects in a Dramatic Series" for this episode.

    • Jessica Gower originally auditioned for the role of Krista Starr.

    • Neil Jackson originally auditioned for a minor role, then returned to read for the part of Marcus Van Sciver. Jackson at first read the part in an American accent, but when the producers didn't like it he read it in his natural British accent. The producers liked his performance so much they re-wrote the character of Marcus (which was originally intended for a much heavier and older actor) for him.

    • Marcus Van Sciver is named after comic book artist Ethan Van Sciver, a frequent collaborator of series writer and prolific comic writer Geoff Johns.

    • The footage of Blade's mother giving birth to him is footage taken directly from the original movie.

    • The first episode had 2.5 million viewers.

    • The initial airing of the pilot ran 90 minutes with limited commercial interruptions.

    Trivia (43)

    • When Starr goes to see the professor, she says "Next you're gonna tell me werewolves exist?" He replies "My colleague, Marc Specter's area of expertise." This is a reference to Marvel Comics character Marc Specter A.K.A. Moon Knight, spirit of vengeance resurrected by Khonshu the lunar God of Egypt. In the comics Blade and Moon Knight worked together a few times.

    • This episode shows continuity from the movies by mentioning Summerfield the blind lady from Blade Trinity.

    • Blade's sword does not have the handle booby trap from the movies anymore.

    • In contrast to the movies, where Blade's medicine against his blood-lust was a opaque, blood-red fluid, here it is a transparent blue fluid, which was used in the movies to represent EDTA, a blood thinner with the ability to make vampires explode.

    • After Krista leaves Marcus' party, she throws her transponder in the trunk of her car, and grabs a sniper rifle. After Krista is captured by Chase, Blade tracks her transponder to the rooftop, not to her car.

    • Zack's keyring had a keychain of the Chthon symbol.

    • At Zack's apartment, there is a copy of the Marvel Comic "Dracula Lives!" #1 on the wall.

    • Allusions Title: Death Goes On This is a spin on the saying "Life Goes On"

    • Boone: Come on honey. We've got miles to go before you sleep. This is a somewhat altered line taken from the poem, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening by Robert Frost. The final stanza of the poem reads: The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. In the poem, the narrator, travelling at night by a horse-drawn vehicle on the winter solstice stops to watch the snow fall in the woods, yet remembers his obligations and, it is assumed, continues home after the end of the poem. It is often believed he sees the woods as a final resting place, and may be considering suicide. The narrator is reminded of his obligations, not only to others in his life but to himself as well. And he's reminded that he has a long way to go, not only in his journey home, but because of the emphasis on this line, it's thought this refers to his life as a whole. Basically, he has a long way to travel still before he can die.

    • Jakob said he was in the battle of Gettysburg. This is an allusion to the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War.

    • The Avengers: The comic that Flannigan gives to the young Eric is a copy of The Avengers. The Avengers are a superhero team published by Marvel Comics who are the creators of Blade. The flashback also takes place in the 1970s at the same time that Blade made his debut.

    • The Turn of the Screw is a short novel written by Henry James. It's about a women who sees ghosts, but we don't know if she sees them or if she is crazy.

    • Shen: So let's go find Renfield and ask him where the prince is building his castle. This is a reference to the character "Renfield" from Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel, who had a psychic link to Dracula.

  • This is not the movie. It isn't Wesley Snipes. It's still Blade, killing vampires.

  • Creative and well controlled writing since a long time. Not as slow as lost, and not as fast as heroes, just the right plot development.
