THE STRAIN First Look: Eph Goes on a Mission…and Gets a New Look

THE STRAIN’s Eph thinks he has the key to stop the vampires that are taking over New York — in the form of the bioweapon he and Nora have been working on — but now comes the hard part: getting the resources so they can mass produce it.

In order to do that, Eph takes a trip to Washington, D.C. in this Sunday’s brand new episode.

“There’s this great sort of two-episode arc where I go down to D.C. to try to get the bioweapon made,” THE STRAIN star Corey Stoll (Eph) told reporters on the show’s Toronto set earlier this year. “You definitely get the sense that [the outbreak] is affecting the rest of the country, but everybody else had the lead time to sort of protect themselves. So [we see that] D.C. is somewhat normal, but there are huge political ramifications, they’re trying to reach the president, and the government is definitely reeling from it, but it’s not this vector of disease like New York is.”

And as Eph makes the journey, he has to go incognito…and so he gets a (familiar) new look.

Nora and Eph may have finally made a breakthrough on THE STRAIN.

As more humans were turned into vampires, Nora and Eph have been working on a bioweapon to fight back. In theory, it’s a simple idea: infect the vampires with a contagious virus which can kill off all the creatures. But to work out the kinks (the virus turning fatal too fast to infect other vampires, etc.), they’ve had to experiment on two recently turned creatures…an ethical grey area.

“Nora and myself are doing very questionable things…in the goal of creating this bioweapon,” Corey Stoll (Eph) pointed out to reporters on the show’s Toronto set. “But we’re definitely not following the Hippocratic Oath. You know, human experimentation and shit like that—it’s pretty ugly.”

Of course, the matter is very personal to Eph: his estranged wife/mother of his son has been turned. And as viewers saw in the last episode, Eph used his subject’s tie to The Master to convey a clear message: he would rather kill his son and himself versus be turned. But Stoll pointed out another emotion might be driving his character to work so hard put an end to the rise of the vampires.
