Detailed Story RecapEdit
- It is possible to cleanse vampire bites with holy water, but it burns horribly.

Behind the ScenesEdit
- The German title for this episode, "Böses Blut", is a straight translation of the English title.
- This is the only episode in which a vampire victim subsequently rises from the grave as a vampire. Although there are other victims of vampire attacks who are brought over (e.g., Alyce Hunter in Dark Knight: The Second Chapter), this is the only instance of such a person having apparently had a funeral and been buried. One can only assume that Bridget's family did not have her body embalmed.
- At the very end of the episode, Chief Inspector O'Neal goes to the graveyard where Bridget Hellman is buried. However, her grave is marked with a fully-engraved headstone, apparently only one day after her death. In real life, the production and erection of a headstone takes months.
