Castlevania S3 Episodes 4 & 5 in Review…
Castlevania S3 Episodes 4 & 5 spends a good bit of time exploring the back stories of characters. In Hector’s case, we get a look at what he really thought Dracula was going to do with humans. Cho, the Japanese vampire, is dead since the attack on Dracula’s castle last season so we’ll see what that means for some of our new characters.
I hope you’re enjoying this season as much as I am. I’m still seeing everything I loved about the last seasons this time around. I’m holding back on binging the whole thing in one sitting!
