The Strain Preview: Will Capturing The Master’s Voice Save The Day? (VIDEO)

As the vampire apocalypse continues to rage on New York City in FX’s series The Strain, it could be the voice of The Master himself that helps our heroes save the day. and the world.

As we saw in last week’s episode, scientist Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and hacker Dutch Velders (Ruta Gedmintas) were able to secure the audio box from the plane that landed at JFK (in the series pilot) with passengers that were among the first to turn into vampires. Once vamps, The Master “speaks” to them and has the ability to instruct them to do whatever he wants to aid in his quest to destroy the world. By understanding how his voice is able to control so many, the hope is that the good guys will be able to stop the villainous one for good.

In this Sunday’s episode, Eph and Dutch study The Master’s voice in hopes of leveraging his power and, as you’ll see in this clip, the results aren’t exactly what they expected.

The Strain, Sundays 10/9c, FX.

Check out our clip from this Sunday’s episode to see whether Eph and Dutch have found the key to stopping the end of the world.
