Vampiress TV Review: Demons

 Season 1, Episode 4 "Suckers"

Demons is a series about a group of monster hunters.  In the group is a guy named Luke who is a relative of the original Abraham Van Helsing and Mina Harker.  Initially it is believed that she is a relative of the Mina Harker of Dracula lore but in this episode it's finally revealed to all tha she is one in the same. 

In this episode a vampire named Quincy comes to town and begins feeding on humans and the hunters create a plan to kill him but main hunter Galvin worries that Mina will stop them as she has done in the past.  Throughout the episode the viewer is led to believe that the vampire Quincy is also the same from the Dracula book until it's eventually revealed that he is in fact the not that Quincy but the son of Mina and Jonathon Harker that Mina turned to prevent him from dying of an illness. 

He unlike her does not hold back his urges and she distances herself from him but seems to always come back.  Eventually Mina realizes what she must do but once she has the chance she still can't bring herself to kill her own son. 

Eventually Quincy does get killed via being shot with a vampire cure by Luke Van Helsing resulting in him rapidly aging and dying of old age in Minas arms.
