The Strain Season 3 premiere is getting closer and closer and with that, we have more intel on what?s to come in the upcoming installment.
Some mild spoilers from the cast indicate that Vasiliy Fet (Kevin Durand) will go on a different journey while Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stall) will team up with Dutch Velders (Ruta Gedmintas).
In an interview with the EPs and the cast by Collider, Durand teased that his character will go on a different journey. ?At the start of this season he kind of goes off on his own,? Durand said. ?He has a bigger plan of attack and not everybody?s behind it.? He also added that the loss of Nora ?triggers him to open up in different ways throughout the season, the vulnerability surfaces a little bit more.?
Meanwhile, Nora?s death will have a ?very profound effect? on Eph and he?ll end up teaming up with Dutch, according to executive producer Carlton Cuse. ?He continued, ?You?ll see how he?s doing in the aftermath of Nora?s death and he transverses a very interesting arc across the season. He and Dutch end up collaborating. ?It?s a good arc for him.?
Furthermore, according to actress Gedmintas, her character is going through some post-traumatic stress after her horrific experience with Eichorst (Richard Sammel). She struggles to form alliances with people from her past but it doesn?t work out so she ends up teaming up with Eph.
The full synopsis for Season 3 reads:
?As season three begins, New York City is a battleground. Written off by the federal government, the people of New York City must fight for survival on their own. The question is who will win? Humans or Strigoi? Our heroes win victories, but are not winning the war. Beset by personal conflicts ? betrayal, disappointment, paranoia ? our group is splintering? Meanwhile, the Master is close to executing an irreversible transformation of the world. Is there still hope to save the city and humanity??
What do you think will Fet do in his separate mission? Will Eph and Dutch prove to be effective as a team?
