The Strain Introduces the Show’s Biggest Badass and Then Instantly Takes Him Away 

First of all, let me apologize for the lack of last week’s recap. I had to travel very early on Monday morning to NYC for io9/Gawker shenanigans, and was unable to watch last week’s episode, which is a shame, because it was definitely the highlight of the season.
