Detailed Story RecapEdit
Removing a Stake:Edit
If the injury is not immediately fatal, a vampire who has been stabbed in the heart can heal and survive provided the stake is removed.
Blood Transfusions for Injured Vampires:Edit
- When Nick is lying in hospital, apparently dead, Natalie gives him a transfusion of blood directly into the stomach. This revives him enough for healing to begin.
- Vampire blood can be absorbed through direct contact of open flesh to flesh, by slashing through the skin and placing the wounds together.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The German title for this episode is "Verloren in der Nacht" ("Lost in the Night").
- When LaCroix arrives at the loft, Nick recognizes him as "the doctor from the hospital". But Nick was still unconscious when LaCroix posed as a doctor and gave him the blood transfusion. He should not be able to remember anything about it.
- In I Will Repay, it was established that a vampire's heart beats only once every ten minutes. When Nick revives in the Emergency Room, he's rushed to surgery. There he would have been attached to a monitor. Nevertheless, no one on the medical staff notices his abnormal heart rate. Although it would be possible for LaCroix to hypnotize them to forget afterwards, they should still have noticed while he was being treated, which should have had consequences.
- When Leon Sharp was firing his bullets at Tracy, she was able to dodge the bullets, as almost anyone knows, no one can dodge bullets and when the drums of toxic chemicals had exploded, Tracy, I think, was a bit too close for comfort. So in either cases, Tracy could have died from either the bullets of the exploding barrels.
Notes & ReferencesEdit
- ↑ There is speculation among some fans that resistance to being staked in the heart comes with great age, and that only much older vampires can survive a stake in the heart temporarily as LaCroix had done. Younger vampires expire sooner depending upon their age, how long since they last fed, etc.
