Van Helsing Season 4 Finale Recap

In the season 4 finale, Team Vanessa finds themselves in a big mess while Dracula appears to grow stronger in influence in the real world. At the Sunshine Unit, Colonel Nicholson, along with Axel and Julius, fights valiantly. The curious orange powder is efficient in taking out vampires but, for some inexplicable reason, also makes one of them strong enough to kill Colonel Nicholson, seriously injuring Julius and Axel in the process. Their fates remain uncertain as brutal injuries put their lives in danger.

When Jack and Violet confront Dracula in the dark realm, they are surprised to learn that they were tricked. Dracula tells them that their presumption that they are going to kill her is misplaced. In fact, both of them are mere means of her escape from the Dark Realm. The visions that they had were intended to delude them into believing that they can defeat her.

After escaping into the real world, Dracula shapeshifts to take President Archer’s place after draining her blood and wastes no time in freeing the Oracle. Now, this puts her in a position of great political power as the future of the world hangs in the balance. With Jack confined in a coffin in the Dark Realm, the fans finally hear from Vanessa Van Helsing. Even though Dracula is now in a position of immense power, there is finally some ray of hope with Vanessa’s return. Now, it will be interesting to see how the story unfolds from here as the heroes take on Dracula in the show’s final season.
