NBC/Sky Living  2013 Dracula Episode Guide

Episode 1.01 Pilot

Dracula arrives in London, posing as Alexander Grayson, an American entrepreneur who claims that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society.  Grayson is specifically interested in the new technology of electricity which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun.  In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier.  There’s only one circumstance that can potentially thwart his plan: he’s fallen hopelessly in love with Mina Murray (Jessica De Gouw, “Arrow”) a young woman who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife.

Episode 1.02 – A Whiff of Sulphur
Grayson takes Lady Jayne as a lover even as he investigates her lethal connections to The Order of the Dragon. Grayson helps Mina face a critical challenge at medical school.

Episode 1.03 – Goblin Merchant Men
Grayson seeks to determine whether Lady Jayne is a vampire hunter for the Order of the Dragon. Lucy mends Mina’s broken heart with absinthe, romance and a whirlwind tour of Bohemian London.  Grayson’s machinations claim the life of Lord Laurent and earn him a powerful new enemy.

Episode 1.04 – From Darkness to Light
Grayson ruthlessly sets out to compromise Lady Jayne, by winning her heart. Lucy’s enthusiastic plans for Mina and Harker’s engagement party conceals a broken heart.

Van Helsing achieves a breakthrough in his efforts to enable Grayson to conquer sunlight, only to suffer an unanticipated setback.

Harker discovers that General Shaw is far from the heroic figure he presents to the public. Van Helsing’s first attempt at infusing a vampiric test-subject with his solar-serum is a disaster.
