    I have to say I am enjoying Season 2 and think they have really found their footing. I'm liking it more in Season 2 than I did in Season 1.

    Glad there are less flashbacks to the concentration camps and the story is no longer focused on looking for the wife.

    I think the scene where the old vampires feasted on the naked man - was visually stunning (can't recall now if it was the first episode or not).

    The old Vampire Hunter - I was really beginning to wonder if it was the actor himself or the character that was so physically out of it these week.

    The rock star being the body guard was great - glad he is back.

    I could still do without the kid.

    And yes - as a lifelong New Yorker...
    That is EXACTLY what the residents of Staten Island would do LOL

    Corey Stoll's career has really exploded since he was on House of Cards - I wonder if he regrets signing on for this show.

    I think the kid needs to die. Why do these shows always have to have some stupid kid? A normal kid would be terrified to leave a place of safety, especially alone.

    A normal kid would do something just as stupid as the kid on the show.

    Same here, which is ironic since I found the second book tedious (and the third unreadable). Hogan and Del Toro seemed to have learned from their mistakes in the books!

    Well they just deviated majorly from the books with the season finale! Nora is not supose to die. She's a major character in the books all the way to the end. Not sure why they did that. I hope they don't start taking Under The Dome style liberties with the story in Season 3.

    I thought it was a really good season finale.
    Lots of twists and turns.
    I really enjoyed season 2.

    Any chance Nora's not really dead?

    I enjoyed it, too! It was very tense. But I'm gonna miss Nora. I'm over Kelly. And not sure how long the Lumen thing can go on. Maybe the next season is the last?

    I'm enjoying the show more than I remember enjoying the books. Though I admit I read them so long ago I've forgotten a lot of the book details.

    Maybe it's a really long train.

    She should be able to walk it off, I think.

    Maybe electrocuting herself killed the worms in her body, or possibly modified her infection in an unexpected way.

    My question is, the infection causes male genitalia to fall off. What happens to females?

    They didn't finish book 2 with this season. So it would seem they are planning at least 4.

    They sort of explain this in the book. Essentially they turn in to Barbie dolls.
