Marchand is a good judge of character and is not thrilled with them working with Eichorst and Bolivar – Palmer admits they’re pretty bad but wants to shield her.
Abraham has his own project – killing a vampire and bottling some goo and worms. He boils the worms, processes them and then drips the white goo into his eyes. As we’ve seen with Palmer, vampire goo can greatly increase vitality and health without being infectious.
She looks pretty horrified but he’s clear that he will do whatever it takes to face the Master – he won’t “fade as a weak old man.” Nora thanks him for telling her and walks away.
Still he realises how effective it is – and asks her to do the same thing for the rest of the city, he wants her to be a champion for the whole city. She agrees – but she wants total, unquestioned command. The mayor agrees, so long as he gets to pretend to be in on it.
I'm also gaining some concern about Feraldo. Yes... she's right - but is she right for the right reasons? We know she's right because we have Narrator Vision and know exactly what the vampires are and, yes, they need to be destroyed. Does Feraldo know this? (If so why even bother displaying the bodies?) Or does she see sick people to destroy? We need to see more here
I'm also not thrilled at the Black mayor just completely handing over all power to a White lady so long as he gets credit - it's incredibly weak and subservient for a man who has worked his way to that position. But the fact it's a woman who has pulled out 8 levels of ruthlessness does some subverting
