Forever Knight: Let No Man Tear Asunder

"We all know that medical science still does occasionally come up with the odd miracle."

A black market for illegal organ transplants – this week, on Forever Knight!

In the 90s, this plot wasn't so uncommon. More surgeries for organ transplants were happening, but the price was/is astronomical. Lots of shows used the dramatic tension of this and the dreaded waiting lists to make a compelling story.


Nick meets a doctor named Victor who wants to do some organ transplantation of his own in order to save his beloved lady, and Nick has to help or Victor will expose his secret. Once again, season three really wants Nick to be involved with famous people/characters from the past.

Little Bites:

-Vampire Lore: It's not clear what's going on with the horses, but they appear to be afraid of Nick, and other vampires. But that's not consistent. Our heroes have ridden horses before without trouble.

-Familiar Faces: The glasses-wearing evil bureaucrat was in a previous episode ("Love You to Death"), but – more importantly – he was in a movie called Jason X with Tracy Vetter herself, Lisa Ryder!

-Not to victim blame, but isn't it kind of weird to go to a tattoo place in the middle of the night, all alone, and have a tattoo made while you lay there in your underwear? Just seems like there's a safer time to do that.

-It is truly astounding that Screed is knowledgeable of an organ trading black market operation, told Vachon about it, and that Vachon was able to understand Screed's ramblings well enough to gather an address and commit it to memory for later.

Final Analysis: This "ripped from the headlines" episode is hard to follow and doesn't have a lot to do with vampires. But Tracy is cool. Two out of five unnecessary Tesla coils.

Adam D. Jones is a writer, musician, and medievalist who feels a kinship for vampires because his sensitive eyes that make it difficult to go outside during the day.


  1. I wish Nick would allow himself some grim satisfaction over seeing anyone who forces/guilts him into resurrecting a loved one having to witness it all going south, but he always wears that "Oh dear" expression. How does he keep allowing them to do this to him lol? How is the viewer supposed to sympathize with that blusterous self-righteousness when it's done for the hundredth time? Whatever. At least Nick flipping on the would-be mugger was really satisfying. Like you said it's nice when the show remembers its main character is a vampire

    1. We don't ask much. We just want our vampire show to actually have, you know, vampires in it. Is that too much to ask?

      But it's always fun when Nick flips out. Crap gets real.
