Our principal character Reginald took the backseat on Reginald the Vampire Season 1 Episode 4.

As a substitute, we obtained the much-needed backstory of how Angela and Maurice’s feud began.

The feelings ran excessive as Maurice visited his mother’s final place of residence, resulting in recollections getting unburied.

Maurice’s feud (dare we are saying, hate?) for Angela originates in these recollections, and all will get revealed throughout his journey down reminiscence lane.

Curiously, this story takes the forefront of the hour, with present-day antics shelved in the interim. Flashback episodes do not at all times go over nicely, however this one stayed on par with the standard of the remainder of the sequence.

We nonetheless acquired a few of the present-day storylines that includes the titular character.

Reginald continued to emphasize in regards to the upcoming Vampire evaluation, however the one drawback? Maurice went lacking.

Nobody knew the place Maurice went (besides, in fact, the viewers), which left Reginald in a difficult place.

Ultimately, we noticed Mike volunteer to take over for Maurice with the coaching; after initially telling Reginald to flee city.

Mike’s change of coronary heart towards Reginald stemmed from his personal “second likelihood,” which can have one thing to do along with his cut price with Angela alluded to in Reginald the Vampire Season 1 Episode 3.

Talking of Angela, the present-day Angela obtained a go to from a fellow vampire from a unique vampire group, Eve.

Eve gave the impression to be an previous buddy of Angela’s, however their relationship obtained strained by the tip of their assembly.

Eve supposed to make the most of Angela’s shortcomings (letting a plus-size vampire be made in her group below her watch) for her profit. Angela already appeared a bit vengeance-focused, which is able to in all probability make issues worse.

Angela obtained much more enraged by this and took the following step to enact her plan to eradicate Reginald earlier than the evaluation: bringing in Nikki.

Nikki continuously will get known as somebody extraordinarily harmful inside the general vampire group. However what’s she? One other vampire, or one thing worse?

Whoever Nikki seems to be (and no matter her powers could also be). Hopefully, we cannot have to attend lengthy to determine these solutions.

The meat of the episode concerned Maurice and his journey to the previous. He visited his mother’s final place of residence and that woke up recollections inside him.

Within the 70s, Maurice and Angela had been residing collectively, and it was all going splendidly — till Maurice killed somebody in a vampiric rage. That somebody? A police officer.

The homicide activated Angela’s flight response (which makes a  lot of sense), and she or he deliberate on shifting them to Paris for a short while (a decade or 2), however Maurice wanted to cease someplace: his mom’s.

Throughout this fateful keep at his mother’s home, Angela acted like a brat, however she additionally realized that he would not depart his household behind for therefore lengthy. So she did the unthinkable.

She turned Maurice’s mom right into a vampire. Maurice nor his mother anticipated this, and Maurice’s mother could not deal with the change mentally. Regardless of Maurice’s warnings and pleadings, his mother walked straight into the daylight, which turned her into ash virtually immediately.

This trauma explains rather a lot about Maurice and Angela’s scenario within the current time. They’re chilly to one another, however Maurice nonetheless harbors a grudge (rightfully so) in opposition to his former girlfriend.

Maurice vowed to kill Angela on that fateful evening. Sometime. Someway, he deliberate on killing her.

And now, who is aware of when that may occur? His revenge mission in opposition to Angela mirrors one thing Angela stated to him early on within the episode: You are appearing on vengeance, not justice.

One other thrilling facet of this episode got here from the neighbor.

At first, this neighbor gave the impression to be a well mannered man who needed to get to know Maurice, whom he thought purchased the home.

Within the 70s, a younger boy would at all times be at Maurice’s mother’s home for dinner. This boy had some trauma, so he did not discuss a lot.

Maurice’s mother acted like a second mother to him, guaranteeing he obtained dinner on account of his mother’s dying and his dad’s ingesting.

The neighbor and this boy look comparatively related, nevertheless it’s revealed that they’re one and the identical. However this boy witnessed one thing horrific: Maurice’s mom getting burned to ashes.

He skilled himself since then to turn into a bonafide vampire hunter.

He outfitted his home with all of the vampire-hunting requirements; wood stakes, holy water blessed by the pope, and a crossbow, and consumed a particular herb for years that stops him from being glamored (and makes him toxic if Maurice feeds on him).

Maurice was devastated by this as a result of this man let vengeance take over his total life, and nothing Maurice did may repair that. he could not glamor him to make him overlook, although he tried.

This man’s destiny added extra gasoline to Maurice, and the nagging query of the episode: is vengeance price it? Is dedicating your entire life to vengeance really residing?

Hopefully, extra of those extra profound questions will seem within the sequence, opening up thrilling conversations between him, Reginald, and Angela.

One other thrilling facet of the vampire mythos that the present shall be utilizing.

The neighbor ready a satan’s lure for Maurice, a lure (normally a pentagram) that might cease a vampire, or one thing related, instead.

After entering into the circle, nonetheless, Maurice moved about freely, thus debunking the idea.

We loved getting extra data on how Reginald the Vampire will deal with vampires as a complete, and hopefully, we’ll study extra about how they work on this world.

We already know that they debunked the “inviting a vampire in” rule, so who is aware of what else they may do!
