Hi Djariya, really this show should have just one Strain Season 4 thread

Not enough watching to warrant a thread per episode

I'll catch up by the finale. Just not that excited about it. I'm glad they sped things up and am going to finish off the story.

I all-around like the show. I just think things get really dumb and naive sometimes. Stretches in logic. Terrible decisions made by the characters. Not unusual for a genre story though.

There is just 2 episodes left and the series is done. Might as well just finish it out with the last 2 threads. I think most here are watching it on delay days after it airs and that's why there is no urgency to see it the night of. Obviously you know Game of Thrones was the big talk for the past week.

I'm on episode 7, so I'm playing catchup.

This show did WAY too much wheel spinning/filler this season. The last 3 episodes have been solid but those first few weeks were so boring it really killed a lot of the 'MUST WATCH' enthusiasm I had for this - however the few big developments have me more interested than I have been but having Zack come back to the forefront is a good way to kill that off quickly.

Stupid they kept Setrakian alive. He would have been dead after the poisoning and infection.

Kept him alive into the beginning of this episode. He would have been dead at end of last.

Boo! No! I hate "one and only" threads for shows because I typically do not watch in real time. Breaking the episodes out allow people to watch at their own pace while still participating and not having to worry about spoilers.

It was a much more noble and heroic way to go, imo.

Another good episode ... After a lot of let down, this is finally ramping back up. Is it enough that we will miss it when it is gone though?

I will -- it's been a lot of fun and I really like the trilogy of books and own the Art of the Strain book that was released. It's beyond a guilty pleasure for me.
