What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Episode 3 Recap

The first scene of the show is a strange foursome, with Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), her human ghost, Colin Robinson, and Nadja’s husband sharing Nadja’s vampire body. In the framework of the world of the undead, the show plays with the idea of polymorphous pleasure by blending the boundaries of sexuality and identity. Although the scene’s specifics are unusual, the players’ individual ways of having fun seem to be the main point of interest.

As the show goes on, Laszlo (Matt Berry), who needs some sunshine, and Nadja’s human ghost, who wants a sexual encounter inside Nadja’s vampire body, are the main characters. They seek to accomplish their different objectives as they go through Staten Island on a voyage riddled with diversions.

Guillermo’s metamorphosis into a vampire—or lack thereof—is the subject of one subplot.  Nandor (Kayvan Novak), meantime, develops resentment toward Laszlo for his connection to his familiar Guillermo, although not being suspicious of him. The episode explores Nandor and Guillermo’s queer-platonic relationship, a subject that has been covered in earlier seasons of the show. Laszlo looks into Guillermo’s undeveloped vampire state, which results in amusing interactions and circumstances.

The Guide and the two Nadjas switching bodies in a “Freaky Friday” scenario also promotes the concept that the women are experimenting with the occult in this episode. The Guide settles in as a regular member of the vampire family and helps Nadja, who is already a vampire, by providing free counseling.

As the story progresses, the episode adds to the show’s vampire mythos by incorporating numerous folktales and fictitious supernatural elements. One intriguing finding is that Nadja was a virgin when she died, and her prodigious sexual encounters began only after she turned into a vampire. The episode also pokes fun at the notion that vampires have to count every grain of rice they come across and that they are “two-pump chumps.”

The Doll is portrayed by Natasia Demetriou, who is recognized for her performance due to her physical and vocal comic abilities. The Doll, a character who is controlled by the ghost of Nadja’s former self and who yearns for sensual pleasure, and Neighbor Sean’s efforts to organize a Pride parade are the central themes of the story.

The episode concludes with a wild and humorous scene between the vampires and their neighbors during a Pride celebration. Despite addressing queerness and relationship issues, the program does so in its distinctive comic and spooky fashion.

What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Episode 3 Recap: Guillermo’s Link

There is a pivotal incident in “Pride Parade,” the third episode of What We Do in the Shadows Season 5, that raises questions regarding Guillermo’s impending transition into a vampire.  In the show, Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) has long desired to become a vampire and hopes that one day Nandor will fulfill his promise to turn him. However, as the series progresses, Guillermo’s transformation doesn’t seem to be happening, and he remains human. The phrase “Guillermo’s connection” implies that there is a special link or bond between Guillermo and Nandor, which might be affecting Guillermo’s ability to undergo the complete transformation into a vampire.

In the specific episode mentioned earlier, “Pride Parade,” there is a moment where Guillermo breathes out smoke after Nandor crashes back down to earth. This scene suggests that Guillermo’s bond with Nandor is still intact, and it could be the reason why he has not turned into a vampire yet. The smoke might symbolize the lingering connection between them or some magical influence that prevents Guillermo’s transformation.

The episode makes viewers wonder why Guillermo hasn’t fully transformed into a vampire yet. According to one theory, Derek’s inability to fully transform into a vampire may be hampered by the fact that he is not Guillermo’s vampire. As a result, Guillermo might be battling his predicament and looking for a solution on his own during this season. Guillermo’s journey to becoming a vampire hasn’t previously been discussed in the program, so this potential plot would give it a fresh perspective.

Despite Nandor’s reluctance to change Guillermo, the television show appears to be implying that he might someday transform into a full-fledged vampire. The smoke incident is a hint that shows Guillermo’s transformation—or lack thereof—may be more complex than it first appears.
