Returning for a second season, vampire Mitchell (Aidan Turner), werewolf George (Russell Tovey), and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) face all new challenges in their hopes of leading normal human lives. Mitchell is dealing with the fallout of the vampire community left without its leader. And meanwhile, he begins a relationship with a new doctor with dark secrets of her own. George also finds a new girlfriend, but her daughter is wary of him. And Annie deals with constant changes and challenges to being non-corporeal.
This season ramps up the suspense and violence to a whole new level. The trio are faced with a new enemy this season: CenSSA, a religious organization headed by a man with a deeply-rooted vendetta. Mitchell takes a dark turn to his former blood-thirsty and violent self that I didn’t care for. It also didn’t make much sense when he drastically shifts mind-sets and moods without much provocation. Most of his decisions and actions this season seem severely out of character, even before he is betrayed. He never seemed to care much for the vampire community until they are left without a leader. Now, he cares more for them than humans. Despite this, the plot and pacing throughout the season is non-stop suspense, thrills and chills. While the viewer knows what’s going on most of the time, it’s fun to watch the mysteries unfold through the eyes of Mitchell, George, and Annie. And seen in blu-ray is all the more thrilling and captivating. Fans of the fantasy and horror genres should not miss this incredible series.
