Detailed Story RecapEdit

Vampire LoreEdit

Fan FictionEdit


  • Nick: Tried and convicted by the press. That's a trial you can never hope to win.


Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The German title for this episode is "Eine schneeweiße Weste" ("A Clean Slate"). The literal translation, "a snow white vest", is derived from a German idiomatic expression.


Canadian ContentEdit


  • When Nick tells Natalie about his past life as an assistant professor, he refers to himself as "a certain indigenous vampire". However, "indigenous" means "native". Nick was from Brabant (Belgium), which means that he was certainly not native to either the US (where the flashback is set) or Canada (where he is talking to Natalie). The word is probably a mistake for "itinerant", which means transient, always moving on.
