Episode: October 29th

Episode Synopsis: It is more difficult for Van Helsing to hypnotise Mina than it had been in the past. In Mina’s sunset hypnosis, she reports that she no longer hears the open sea, but the swirling of water and oars, along with the ambience of men’s voices and distant noises. Before boarding the train, and whilst waiting at a station, Van Helsing is able to hypnotize Mina twice more, but each time it gets harder and harder to make contact. She continues to report sounds of creaking wood, strange voices in foreign languages, the howling of wolves, and other noises that may help them pinpoint the Count’s location.

Episode: October 28th

Episode Synopsis: Rufus Smith sends a telegram to Arthur that the Czarina Catherine has been reported entering Galatz. The group is not overly surprised to discover that the Count had changed course. Mina is surprisingly helpful and free to talk as she tells the group the best train to take them through Galatz. Arthur, Quincey, and Jonathan go to make preparations for their departure and reception in Galatz. Van Helsing and Seward surmise that the Count peered into Mina’s brain on the day that she was very lethargic, and discovered their plan. Mina concurs with them that she feels that the Count has distanced himself from her, having discovered the risk to himself by her knowledge of his movements. Van Helsing and Mina deduce from Jonathan’s journal that the Count will retreat to his own castle by the same route as he did in the battles of old, as by his character he has shown that he is a creature of habit. Seward, Mina, and Van Helsing prepare for their next journey with renewed vigor.

Seward and Van Helsing are worried about Mina, who is particularly lethargic that day. Van Helsing says that they need not revisit the idea of euthanizing her unless her teeth begin to sharpen again. Mina gives the same report as on other days- that the Count is still at sea.

Episode: October 17th

Episode Synopsis: Arthur has managed to procure assurance that they will be allowed to board the Czarina Catherine and search for the box, which he claimed contained something stolen from a friend. Van Helsing assurs the men that if they dispatch the Count, his body should turn to dust, thus allaying the worry of a murder trial, but they may have to face consequences for their actions. Jonathan is not concerned, as Mina’s soul is his top priority.

Episode: October 15th

Episode Synopsis: The men have arrived in Varna, and settle into “The Odessus” hotel. Arthur checks his telegrams and ensures that the Czarina Catherine has not been seen in port. Van Helsing continues to hypnotize Mina at sunrise and sunset, but her report is always the same- that the Count is still on the high seas in his box. In the morning, the men will visit the Vice Consulate to arrange to bribe their way onto the boat, hopefully between sunrise and sunset, before the Count can escape, and do away with him while he sleeps in his box.
