The Strain Season 2 picks up where the first left off, but with the new season, it loses some of the motivation and tension that made the first season so effective and gripping. Thankfully, midseason, things get a lot more intriguing thanks to the newfound focus on the Master and Eichorst's plans as well as the introduction of a new Daywalker who fights for his own unseen ambitions. Story threads involving Eph and Setrakian, the old warrior, are mostly followed through and tied up to the final episode, with the exception of some cliffhangers that can only be answered in season 3, which may possibly be the last season, as only ten episodes are planned compared to thirteen in the 1st and 2nd seasons. If you're wondering if this is a show you'd be interested in, The Strain is very much about the decisions humans make when presented with greed or fighting against a greater evil, which is a recurring theme throughout the series. Additionally, if you have a tolerance for parasitic worms crawling beneath the skin that infest the human host and turn it into a obedient servant to the Master Vampire, this is the show for you, as there are many, gory examples of this in The Strain.
