Interview With The Vampire is coming to an end this week and features an intriguing shift in pace which is based on Claudia as opposed to Louis. It is a great way to understand the mental state of the young girl and comprehend the joys and lows of vampirism. Having a hard time trying to control her powers while simultaneously setting the group up as an unstable family, adds an interesting poetic element that harks back to the notion that teenagers are insecure and difficult to control.

The episode is able to serve as an allegory about growing older… only with more bloodshed and murder! However, it provides the show with an edge that is a bit different by allowing us to change perspectives to see things from different points of view.
