Reginald the Vampire Season 1 Episode 2 Overview: The Starvation
Issues obtained progressively worse for Reginald on Reginald the Vampire Season 1 Episode 2.
Reginald refused to feed, after which when he tried to feed, he could not work out how.
This led to his life being in danger, together with everybody round him!
Reginald’s love life additionally took just a few steps backward, and Sarah recovers from a Glamor.
The episode’s high quality ticked up a bit from the premiere, nevertheless it nonetheless felt like primarily setup.
Reginald’s concern with feeding took the forefront of the hour, and he struggled with the prospect.
He tried to feed on a number of folks, nevertheless it did not work. He even obtained punched within the face by one of many guys!
The humor used to handle Reginald’s feeding concern was sensible, as usually vampires do not have a difficulty feeding on whomever to get their sustenance.
With out Maurice’s assist, Reginald ended up discovering the right sufferer to feed off of with the assistance of his buddy and buyer, Claire.
He tried to feed off Claire, prompting her to determine he was a vampire.
Reginald’s glamor by no means labored on anybody (in all probability on account of his lack of conviction), and he had resigned to giving up.
Claire gave him some uncooked meat which did not assist as a lot as she’d hoped, so the following night she made one other suggestion: feed off of Todd.
Todd by no means failed at being an ass to Reginald, so when it got here right down to it, it made probably the most sense!
Cornered within the break room, Reginald managed to feed off his boss, Todd, and glamor him to make him overlook.
Reginald’s feeding plot took up many of the episode, and whereas it did create some enjoyable humor, it nonetheless felt like we’re caught within the exploration stage.
The present does not appear to know what it needs to be.
Angela, Maurice’s maker, clearly solidified herself as somebody to hate all through this episode, however the character improvement didn’t match the remainder of the present’s tone.
The present has jumped round from comedy, dramedy, drama, buddy comedy, and a plethora of different subgenres through the first two outings.
The MCU’s Jacob Batalon’s portrayal of Reginald brings smiles to our faces.
He is fantastic and suits effectively with the remainder of the forged, and we’re glad that the Marvel actor is holding his personal.
The chemistry between him and the opposite characters he interacts with impressed, and we would like the present’s high quality to match the abilities of Batalon and firm.
This phase did go away us on a cliffhanger which may be a superb setup for the occasions of the season.
Angela tried to kill Maurice.
Angela is Maurice’s maker, and she or he felt indignant and betrayed that he broke all contact together with her (after which confirmed up as if nothing occurred).
She additionally revealed that she is aware of about Reginald and proceeded to do precisely what Maurice predicted in Reginald the Vampire Season 1 Episode 1: she known as him an abomination.
Earlier than Reginald may come to attempt to save Maurice, the latter virtually obtained burned to ashes in an incinerator.
Angela proved ruthless on this episode, and now that Reginald tried to avoid wasting Maurice, we will solely assume issues will worsen within the subsequent hour.
After he consumed Todd, Reginald acquired flashes of Maurice’s harrowing situation, which prompted him to launch right into a rescue mission.
Regindlad headed to Angela’s place of residence to attempt to save Maurice, with no clear plan in his head.
Reginald will get stopped by a really tall man, and one thing comparatively unclear occurred.
Earlier within the episode, this man obtained revealed to be Isaac’s brother (Maurice killed Isaac).
As Isaac’s brute of a brother lifted Reginald by his neck, able to kill Reggie, Reginald tried to glamor him.
Just a few seconds later, and the scene lower to Reginald discovering Maurice and saving him from being burned alive (effectively, undead).
There are just a few unclear issues on this scene.
Did the glamor work? Is Isaac’s brother a vampire? If not, what’s he? If he’s, what occurred earlier than the scene lower?
Hopefully, this stuff get revealed in episode three as a result of our curiosity has been piqued!
The cliffhanger left us with Reginald simply saving Maurice and Angela alerted to the rescue.
We obtained to expertise just a little extra vampire society politics when Angela confirmed that she does not approve of Reginald and desires him killed.
These vampolitics (vampire politics) proceed to be one of many extra fascinating points of the collection; nevertheless, additionally they stay comparatively elusive.
Comedy takes the forefront of the collection, and whereas it really works effectively, we wish to see the comedy balanced with the opposite elements of the present that do not get as a lot display time.
Hopefully, we’ll get some kind of confrontation, as Maurice and Reginald are at the moment caught in Angela’s residence.
We even have an fascinating idea/query that we ponder: does Reginald have any connection to Angela?
Maurice’s maker is Angela. Reginald’s maker is Maurice. That makes Angela his grand-maker.
This might present an fascinating connection between Reginald and Angela exterior the already muddled politics.
Regardless of the case, we hope the present continues its upwards high quality development.
Now that Reginald fed, glamored somebody, and gained confidence, they’ll actually discover the meat of his character.
