Me? I've loved the plot/counter-plot bit! It shows that Blade is maturing. No longer just a "slay-first/ask-questions-afterward" type of guy.
Still, the Chthon commando raid, on Boone's so-called safehouse, and Blade's Berlin rescue mission, were undeniably thrilling. In fact, "fantastic" and "awesome" seem inadequate to describe both the fight choreogrpahy and the special effects used for those scenes.
As for poor Vanessa Simms? I cannot help wondering how she'll react to the news that dear old Dr. Vonner was using in vitro fertilization to create genetically engineered dhampirs. The Pure Bloods certainly won't like it. They obviously have enough problems with accidentally-created ones like Blade!
Whatever else happens, I am definitely tuning in next week to see if Krista is really turning traitor. Although, I sincerely hope not.
