All seems lost. The strigoi have won the nuclear war that Eph (Corey Stoll) and Zach (Max Charles) triggered on Illumination Day and now rule as bloodthirsty tyrants through The Partnership. Eph's ragtag gang has scattered all over the U.S. in an effort to survive and evade strigoi persecution. The fight isn't over, however. Eph works with resistance fighters to attack strigoi nests. Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) and Fet (Kevin Durand) steal a nuclear weapon. Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) and Setrakian (David Bradley) escape a blood-processing plant and resume work on the Occido Lumen. All roads lead back to Manhattan as the war between the Master (Robin Atkin Downes) and the human resistance reaches its climax. The fourth season of "The Strain" also stars Jonathan Hyde as Palmer, Richard Sammel as Eicchorst, Miguel Gomez as Gus, and Cas Anvar as Desai. Jamie Hector resumes his role as Alonso Creem. Guest stars include Angel Parker as Alex and Rhona Mitra as Charlotte.

This is what it's like to see The Strain firing on all cylinders, finally.

But the series found its way back to top form in its final season, its bleakest yet, as the characters reckoned with their own fates after a disaster left them ostracized from each other and utterly hopeless.

It's obvious that all of the core cast members are spread out all over the place, but are still in touch to some degree, with each working towards a specific goal.

Indeed, it feels like the show is preparing to tie everything together into a satisfying end that rewards all who stuck it out for the four year run.
