Play Now Dracula Season 1 Episode 3 “The Dark Compass” Online
Dracula emerges from his coffin and surfaces on Whitby beach. He is met by Dr Zoe Van Helsing, who tells him that 123 years have passed. He tries to feed on her, but her blood makes him vomit. He is imprisoned in a laboratory for study, and his blood is sampled. However, he contacts a lawyer who threatens to expose their illegal operations, and he is released. Zoe drinks Dracula’s blood and begins to experience Sister Agatha’s memories. Dracula becomes infatuated by Lucy Westenra, a young socialite who does not fear him, and plans to make her his bride. Zoe, dying of cancer, begins to merge with Agatha’s personality. Zoe travels to Dracula’s London home. Lucy, now undead, also arrives but is horrified at what she has become, and is killed at her own request. Zoe exposes Dracula to the sunlight, who is unaffected. Zoe explains that Dracula fears death above all and is greatly ashamed of this. He has conditioned himself to believe the legends as they allowed him to hide himself from the society that he feels unworthy of. Zoe dies and Dracula drinks her poisoned blood. The two share an epiphany in the sunlight.
Count Dracula has made it to England – a new world pulsing with fresh blood – and lays his plans to spread his foul vampire contagion, but why does he set his sights on the seemingly ordinary Lucy Westenra?
