'The Strain' recap: The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat

How tragic and heartbreaking it is to see a young Abraham Setrakian nearly track down his demonic adversary — the king of all vampires, the Master — only to realize he’s trapped underground in some godforsaken Albanian well, unable to protect his beloved wife. That may be what fans of FX’s hit thriller “The Strain” think when they see the latest episode, dubbed “Last Rites.” Or, in a hive mind reaction, they may shriek, “What the what is going on with that facial hair?” This is not exactly the comic relief we need, dear producers, and it distracts from a truly devastating story arc.
