Following the smoldering collection premiere of Anne Rice’s Interview With the Vampire, the AMC drama is again with bloodlust in Episode 2. Premiering Sunday, October 9, Interview With the Vampire Season 1 Episode 2 will present the direct aftermath of Louis de Pointe du Lac accepting the darkish reward and reworking right into a bloodsucker.
On this TV Insider unique clip above, Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) teaches Louis (Jacob Anderson) the way to use his new talents and, most significantly, the way to feed. Louis’s ears can now choose up noise “like a maddening symphony,” Lestat explains. He then shares how Louis can zero in on every individual to listen to their ideas.
“Observe my voice, a single string,” the Frenchman croons. “Your eyes will wander, led by your starvation. Are you hungry, Louis?” The ravenous, on-the-prowl Louis curtly responds, “Uh huh.”
Lestat, gleefully watching Louis acclimate, then describes the people of New Orleans as his former brothers and sisters, “however now, they’re your savory inferiors.” He compares the people to wine, every one boasting completely different taste profiles with their mixture of blood and flesh. Some are “fleshy and tart,” others have “hints of iron, somewhat plain in any other case,” and the ingesting sailors they set eyes on are like an “oak-aged cabernet, thick-skinned and chewy.”
Louis chooses his prey — a good-looking, boisterous sailor — and begins to lunge, however the smitten Lestat warns towards going “straight for the prettiest woman on the social gathering,” even when he does “admire the aesthetic.”
“At first, it’s finest to let the meals come to you,” he proclaims, pointing Louis’s eye to a greater possibility sitting on the bar.
