You’ve probably already heard of What We Do in the Shadows, but in case you’ve gotten a case of the Brain Scramblies, here is a quick overview.
A documentary crew captures the nocturnal lifestyles of vampires Nadja, Laszlo, Colin Robinson, Nandor, and his familiar Guillermo just trying to live the American dream in Staten Island without skipping a meal.
Let’s kill some time between seasons by playing with some ideas that would be fun to see in season 3.
We’ll start with some plot points that seemed to die with unfinished business:
- Where’s Jenna? Does she possibly establish a vampire LARPing group with her newfound confidence and abilities to make her own vampiric way in the world?
- What is Gregor’s… Jesk’s… I mean Jeff’s unfinished business? Will he become the Headless Horseman – driving around Staten Island until it’s accomplished?
When we left last season, our favorite bad-ass, Guillermo, was unable to avoid his destiny. Now, can he go back? Will he even want to? Where will they all go?
As out of touch as immortal bloodsuckers tend to be, Midwest farm country would be an apt place to hide out from a threat that no longer exists. Plus, an old-fashioned, pitchfork mob would end the arc so much better there.
On a much more random note, I would also like to see them meet the mischievous Fae. Maybe they are convinced that the Tooth Fairy is after their teeth, and maybe she is. I can’t imagine a scarier fate for a vampire than someone stealing their fangs.
While I may doubt my head canon will ever make the cut, I have no doubts that the show will live up to my expectations of irreverently feel-good humor. What are some things you would like to see next season?
