(Spoilers ahead for Anne Rice’s Interview With the Vampire)

What happens when a Black gay vampire is pushed to the edge? Nothing good for those who have wronged said vampire. In the case of Louis (Jacob Anderson), episode 3, “Is My Very Nature That of the Devil,” marks him tipping way over the edge because of rage.

Louis, who happens to have supernatural abilities, is able to do something about it.
