Book Vs Television: The Strain S1:E10 The Loved Ones

Well for anyone who read the books, Episode 10, “The Loved Ones,” finally delivers a bit of what we had been anxiously expecting. Kelly transforms into a vamp! Just a bit of a heads up, if it’s not obvious – Kelly being a vampire will be a major plot point throughout the series.
