'Van Helsing' Season 4 Episode 10 preview: Axel and Julius return as Violet is forced to fight for entertainment
After last week’s episode, we return to the present where the apocalypse continues in full swing. ‘Together Forever’ introduces a gladiatorial fight ring, a staple of any good apocalypse. It’s where Julius (Aleks Paunovic) has apparently been kept captive since we’ve seen him last, and even with his prodigious healing abilities, he’s looking a little worse for the wear. Axel (Jonathan Scarfe) also appears, and the next generation of Van Helsings meet two of the best warriors.
Before sacrificing herself to keep the Dark One at bay, Vanessa (Kelly Overton) gave Axel an enchanted drawing that would point to where she was. As per the promo released by Syfy, with her gone the compass leads Axel straight to Jack (Nicole Munoz) who could really benefit from an ally in the search for her sister.
Speaking of which, the promo also shows Violet (Keeya King) reuniting with Julius, both captured and forced to fight for the entertainment of others. One of their challengers, Carnage (Paul Wight), roars into the ring and may prove to be quite a challenge for whoever’s going up against him. Still, with everything that’s going on, and the need to find a way to end the Dark One once and for all, is this fight ring a diversion that Violet can afford to spend much time on?
Wherever the fight ring is set, one thing you can’t deny - its sets are magnificent. There isn’t a lot of opulence in the apocalypse and anyone who’s managed to secure what appears to either be a mansion or a grand hotel after the Rising must be quite a powerful foe - or at least employed by people who are.
Check out the promo below:
According to the official synopsis for 'Together Forever', "After Violet is taken hostage by a sadistic ringmaster, she is forced to go head-to-head with various opponents if she wants to escape the gladiator arena."
The next episode of 'Van Helsing' airs November 29, on Syfy
