Creepy Children
18 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Eph and Nora begin to study the effects of alternative treatment to the infection in the old couple. Setrakian studies how to destroy The Master and finds the reference to Occido Lumen and he believes Palmer has the possession of this book. During a lecture at a food distribution center, Setrakian confronts Palmer and learns that he does not have the book. Kelly brings creepy children to sniff Zach´s belongings and hunt him to find his location.

"By Any Means" is another average episode of "The Strain", where the reference to the Occido Lumen and Kelly´s children are the best parts. The rest is only filler. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
