  • Why did he have to say he can't forgive her.....

    9.5
    I was very upset and sad that Henry was so mad and said that he couldn't forgive Vicki for using magic to save him. He would have died otherwise. But not to be able to forgive her??

    I think she used the spell that we all saw early in the season 1 with the ministor who travel and drank blood as he was stalking Henry to kill him.

    I loved the episode for the passion and devotion that Vicki had to Henry but only to have him in the end be so angry and recentful with her. And Mike is crabby and gone.moreless
  • The people Vicki depends on most and they both leave her.

    I think this was the first episode that made me cry. It broke my heart. First Mike doesn't want to be involved in Vicki's world of the supernatural. Then Henry says he can't forgive her. It'll be interesting to see how they patch things up. And Coreen! She tried to talk her out of it, she couldn't even finish the ritual. But if Vicki hadn't done it, Henry would be dead and the mummy would be unstoppable. I feel bad for Coreen--she'd love for Henry to be interested in her and when she said he wouldn't even look at her you could see her heart break. I also feel bad for Mike. He doesn't want to drag Kate into this world too but he can't ignore it. He just wants to be a cop. Henry doesn't want to die but he doesn't want to lose Vicki to whatever it is she just made a deal with. And then there's Vicki herself. She pushes everyone away enough as it is and now that she's trying to protect everyone, she ends up losing them all. Wonderful episode and I can't wait to see what happens next.moreless
  • Thieves steal the pieces to an Incan museum exhibition then make the mistake of removing an amulet from a mummy bringing it back to life. The mummy is targeting Henry so that it can gain his immortal soul, but Vicki won't let that happen.moreless

    Wow what a reverse in course. The last episode was somewhat lost in its storyline and the its overall feel. This episode was straightforward well written, well acted, and it gets right to the point.



    We have Mike finally dealing with his real problem with all of this supernatural stuff. Let's face it, it's not in his job description. As he puts it, "the bad guys should be carrying guns" not stealing the souls of their victims or drinking their blood. Henry is dreaming of this Incan Mummy Pachacamac played by the instantly recognizable actor Danny Trejo who is reaching out to him. The only problem is vampires don't dream and Henry hasn't in his almost 500 years of existence. This has got Henry at least a little nervous and somehow believing that maybe his time is coming to an end.



    Of course Vicki is not about to let any of this happen. With Coreen's help she uses Black Magic to taint her own soul and destroy Pachacamac. Because you can only destroy one eternal being with the help of another. Pachacamac has Death on his side, but Vicki has Satan on hers. It's all related to those markings she has.



    Henry claims he will never forgive Vicki, but somehow I doubt that. Has he ever had a more loyal friend in his 500 years? I think not. A very enjoyable and interesting episode. Thanks for reading...moreless
  • Henry is dream stalked by an ancient Indian mummy come back to life thanks to some greedy thieves. The kick is Henry is essentially "dead" during the day and hasn't dreamed in 500 years.moreless

    Wrapped is a play on one of Tanya Huff's blood books about an ancient Egyptian mummy come back to life after being buried alive over a 1000 years before. I don't recall the entire story but the ending is nothing like "Wrapped". To their credit, Blood Ties writers did their best to film an episode that at least reflects the intensity of Huff's mummy book - they just had 43 minutes to do it in! The entire piece of Henry being stabbed by Vicki in order for her to drink his blood and kill the vampire is (if I remember correctly) not copied at all from the book. His anger and feelings of indignant betrayal seem a bit harsh and unfair. Especially since he knows Vicki's personality is as arrogant and stubborn as his own! So to expect her to allow him to run out the door to what would have been certain "death" (or is it re-death?) was not reasonable. In any case, I loved this episdoe - loved the intensity of the characters and especially the way they are played. They just keep getting better and better at the roles. It's very unfortunate the producuers or whomever is responsible for the continuance of this show aren't going to give it more time on a network that people actually watch and have access too. Very sad statement on our current entertainment industries lack of patience.moreless
  • Vickie loses both the men in her life.

    9.4
    The storyline to me wasn't that interested but the effect the story had on the characters left an impression that will be felt for episodes to come.



    Vikie's relationship with Mike was forever changed when he had to destroy evidence to keep his partner from discovering the supernatural aspect of his case. By destroying this evidence, he also lost a chance to identify a victim and get some closure for her. This really hurt him and made him questions which side he was on and how to deal with everyting around him.



    Vickie's relationship with Henry was forever changed when she betrayed his trust and used his blood to taint her life force so the mummy would be destroyed when it went after Vickie. Vickie and Coreen also incapacitated Henry to keep him from going after the mummy himself. They did this to protect him.



    The final scene between Vickie and Henry discussing their trust and whether or not Henry could ever trust her again was heart wrenching. What happens next in each of these relationships -- well I can't wait.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The Incas were not an earlier, more "primitive" culture in comparison to the Aztecs. They had a far reaching empire with a complicated social structure that stretched throughout the Andes of Peru and Ecuador into some areas of Bolivia, Argentina, Colombia and Chile. They did not even exist in Mesoamerica where the Aztecs were located. Mesoamerican is a term that is used in reference solely with specific cultures that existed on the North American continent i.e not the Incans. The term Pre-Columbian on the other hand can be used to reference both those cultures that existed in North America and South America. The Incas were contemporaries of the Aztecs. They were conquered in 1532 by the Spanish conquistador Pizarro within a few years of the fall of the Aztec empire.
