Dracula, Ep. 1.03, “Goblin Merchant Men”: Dense episode highlight shows few flaws

Dracula, Season 1, Episode 3, “Goblin Merchant Men”

This week’s episode of Dracula opens with a stellar flashback that highlights the Order of the Dragon’s ritual that “condemned” Dracula to an “endless life”. By the end of the end of the episode Alexander Grayson (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has already destroyed one member of the Order in a particularly sad way

The first two episodes of Dracula moved quickly so this week’s “Goblin Merchant Men” is a bit of a surprise. At times it is downright slow. While it has some great moments, Lord Laurent’s (Anthony Howell) death, the opening, and the terrace scene between Grayson and Mina (Jessica De Gouw) are particular standouts; its pace reminds us that there is just too much going on.

Lady Jayne (Victoria Smurfit) is one of those issues.
