'The Strain' Season 1, Episode 8 Recap: Insert Boxcutter, Remove Worm

September 1st, 2014 9:01am EDT
The Strain
Every television show in existence must do a bottle episode- it is written in the great cosmic TV code. Whether bound by a low budget (a "bottle episode" being an episode of a TV show that's filmed almost entirely in a single location) or just a sense of "hey, wouldn't it be cool if the whole cast was stuck in a walk-in freezer for a full hour?" the bottle episode must come.

"The Strain" is no different. Once "Creatures of the Night" gets going, it never leaves the confines of a lonely gas station convenience store (well, technically some people leave, but there's a 50% survival rate for t...
