“Dracula” season 1, episode 8: “Come to Die” premieres tonight on NBC.
This week on “Dracula,” Grayson and Van Helsing have a falling out following the cancellation of their public demonstration. This leads Van Helsing to quickly seek revenge against Mr. Browning and his family. Harker discovers that Grayson has been playing him for a fool and forbids Mina from seeing him. With this new information, Mina focuses her attention on her schooling only to be attacked by Lord Davenport’s men. Once Harker realizes it’s Davenport who orchestrated the attack, he responds with murder. Meanwhile, Lady Jane learns that the legendary Dracula is back in London.
NBC describes the series as follows:
“It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan…until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.”
“Dracula” season 1, episode 8: “Come to Die” airs Friday Jan. 10, at 10 p.m. EST on NBC. Take a look at the preview and sneak peek video below:
