‘Van Helsing’ recap: Brad and Cort Talk Ep 5×13, “Novissima Solis”

Van Helsing, Ep 5×13, “Novissima Solis” aired June 25, 2021 

Welcome back, Helsingers.  The end has arrived and how bittersweet has it been to watch our faves truly come full circle. Vanessa, Violet, and Jack face off with the Dark One for one last battle and it’s pretty epic. Ivory and Axel are forced to turn back to help President Park and his son.

Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort break down ep 5×12, “The Voices” and 5×13, “Novissima Solis”. Bathory received the Van Helsing bite and she was turned back, but being a bride of Dracula isn’t very easy on the psyche. Vanessa tries to help by using one of her new Dark Realm maneuvers. She’s able to get into Bathory’s mind, but the Dark One is still able to exert control from afar.

First, she has Bathory attack Jack and retrieve the amulet. It’s not long before, Dracula is fully powered up and using that energy to darken the skies and turn everyone possible in her vicinity into vampires. The Van Helsings and those they’ve turned are immune to the force of the Dark One’s power.

What did you think of the final showdown between the Dark One and Vanessa? The amulet is destroyed, but Vanessa once again levels up and she becomes the vessel for all of that darkness. Were you shocked to find out that Olivia’s consciousness was tucked away within the Dark One? Axel ends where he began. Watching over Vanessa. Olivia returns and meets her descendants. Ivory takes off to track down what remands of the Sisterhood. 

This looks like a spin-off that I would love to have on my tv screen. Give us a listen and then be sure to drop a comment or in our Facebook group with your thoughts on the finale two episodes of the series. You can also send us an email at [email protected]
