Is it wrong to be almost giddy about the latest episode of "The Strain," FX's hit summer thriller from creature creator Guillermo del Toro? No, it is not.

Fans of this vampocalyptic series have anticipated that these titans would come together at some point. That the characters fall so quickly into lockstep, promising to truly get the ball (and the heads) rolling, makes episode 8, "Creatures of the Night," especially rewarding.
