Last night on the SyFy Channel, the 11th episode of the season debuted. Going Dutch was the name, and it included the songs of two independent rock groups, not the normal label retreads.
The episode opens with a rather philosophic discourse on the spirit's ability to change, or to adapt to change. The Elders, aka "The Dutch", are in Boston to visit, which they do every 50 years or so. The rest of the time they are cared for in their sleep by a group of Amish. Bishop is sure they have come to kill him, as they are rather committed to the status quo, and Bishop is all for changing, adapting. Rather than feeding on the shores of the harbor, Bishop introduces to the Elders to Lola and her friends, who are there to allow them to feed on their blood. This makes the Elders uncomfortable, who would prefer to devour than to snack. They decide to compromise, and take the ladies offered, and kill them all. In the background, you here the rocking music of The Fling on the song Cold Comfort.
Sally's ex-fiancee/killer shows up to the house, with current girlfriend, Bridget and another person, an exorcist. While starting out gently achieves little, soon the exorcist is pulling out the big weapons, which start to have an effect on Sally.
How quickly an Alpha Dog has fallen. Just last week, Josh was on top of the world, having beaten his foe in the ring, This week, we learn Nora is pregnant, and a confused Josh questions the paternity and stumbles each time he opens his mouth to speak. Later, Aidan remaks on the missteps Josh made with Nora.
In a meeting with Hegeman, Bishop learns they would like to replace him as the Boston leader, and in fact take him back to Amish country for a revitalizing 50-year sleep. This certainly doesn't settle well with him. Soon it is time for Bishop to give the Eldges an answer. With both Aidan and Marcus leaves Bishop in the cold.
While he makes what starts out as a concession speech he reveals Lola and company were laced with Juniper, which is, in fact, killing to a vampire. While offering the blood of a pregnant woman, he turns the tables on the Elders, and starts to round the table, taking their heads one by one. Soon we can hear the music for Never Came by a California rock band named Sweet Apple.
By the time he was on the third beheading, Aidan screwed up the courage and ran off with the one remaining living Elder, Hegeman. He is pursued by Marcus, who starts to beat Aidan, and prepares to kill him. At the last moment, Rebecca steps up to stake Marcus, saving Aidan's life. They run off carrying Hegeman.
Sally is struggling with the Exorcist, the rites of exorcism are having a real effect on her. But soon the exorcist was able to see though to the light on the original crime, and when Danny killed Sally. Soon the exorcist and Bridget are walking away from Danny. Sally has survived, but just barely. The music of Sweet Apple continued here, the song still strong in my memory.
Josh talks to Nora, and finally is relaxed and doesn't make an ass of himself. They make up, and Josh promises to be there for her and the child.
Hegeman warns Aidan to be careful, because they will unleash their wrath before he heads to Amish country. That leaves lovers Aidan and Rebecca, and before you know it, Rebecca gets what she wanted, a surprising thing. She would like Aidan to stake her, and while he doesn't want to, he finally oft that done. He is left with an armful of ashes.
