Recap / Mary Shelleys Frankenhole S 1 E 3 Attack Of The Were Lawrence

Go To

Unlovable lycanthrope, Stewart Lawrence needs to find someone to love him in order to kill him.

This episode provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Better to Die than Be Killed: After the werewolf bit Lawrence and took her arm, Barbara shoots herself in the head.
  • Hated by All: The only people who ever came close to tolerating Stewart were his now-dead sweetheart Barabara (who was clearly not enjoying their late-night stroll before being attacked by a werewolf who was also Stewart from the future) and Elke Sommer (who no longer loves him when he rejected her after she became a Were-Lawrence).

  • Noodle Incident: Polidori tries pitching a creation idea to Victor involving an elaborate gown and hair, only for Victor to shoot it down on account of having done it already (possibly an allusion to the creation of the Bride).
  • Resurrective Immortality: When Victor shoots Lawrence in the head with a silver bullet, he leaves his corpse impaled on the castle gates for many decades before the bullet falls out of the wound in his then fully-decomposed corpse, causing him to regenerate instantly.
  • Rip Van Winkle: When Lawrence goes to Victor for help, he is greeted by Victor’s then-adolescent son. After recovering from a silver-bullet many decades later, he is greeted by the same son, now an elderly old-man.
  • Stable Time Loop: Stewarts wishes to go back in time to give Barbara silver bullets so that she can kill the werewolf that killed her and infected him… only for him to turn into a werewolf, bite his past self and cause Barbara’s suicide.

  • Threatening Shark: Victor and Polidori create a flying shark, only to immediately kill it for the lulz.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Victor’s son Heinrich.It is clear that Victor and Polidori thought he was cute at the time, laughing even when he accidentally shoots Polidori with a gun.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Stewart’s only wish is to die, and the only way he can die is when he is killed with a silver-bullet by someone who loves him (and when that happens he no longer wants to die). Unlike most other examples of this however, his suicidal wish is born more out of guilt of the carnage his werewolf-half causes than any form of ennui.


How well does it match the trope?
