The Strain season one finale has Eph still uneasily wearing the label of strigoi hunter with Nora, Setrakian, Velders and Fet. At the start of the episode Palmer pays a visit, along with his head of security Fitzwilliam, to Abraham’s shop to collect the old man’s weapons. While there, Eldritch discovers the heart of Setrakian’s wife. He also finds out that he has not been turned and he is not pleased. He gets angry and Eichorst tells him that he will eventually serve at The Master’s side for eternity eventually but for now the strain of infection will not be passed on and that Palmer should think of it as another test.
