Peace in the Valley

Death Valley - Peace in the ValleyIt’s funny how something can be staring you in the face, but it takes you twelve weeks to realize it’s there. While watching the opening credits of “Peace in the Valley,” the season finale of Death Valley, I noticed that every episode has started with a news clip of a reporter stating one simple fact: no one knows where the vampires, zombies and werewolves came from. I think we might have gotten our answer in the finale.

Kirsten visits Natalie at the hospital, where she has been volunteering. Natalie is mad that Kirsten lied to her about who she is, but she opens up and admits that Rico and his friends drugged her and gang-fanged her. She is not sure if she was fully turned or just infected, but she is not happy about it. Kirsten goes to Dashell with this information, and he is pissed. Stubeck and Pierce are meeting with two of Santos’s goons to set the parameters of the peace accord, but now Dashell wants nothing to do with those “monsters.” Kirsten convinces him to go through with it, nothing that there are thousands of other girls who face the same fate if something isn’t done.

I have to say, I loved this sit down more than anything that I’ve seen on the show so far. Watching frat-boy Billy and family-guy Stubeck face off against the vampire versions of themselves (stuck in a vampire version of their partnership) was brilliant. But the only thing our boys in blue really learned during the pow-wow was that vampires like ta-ta’s (I could have told you that—I saw Breaking Dawn this week), and vampires can definitely control zombies.
