Van Helsing Season 5 Episode 1 that premiered last week was called “Past Tense”. In this episode, we got to see how Jack escaped from her coffin when she met Vanessa. She helped Jack by opening a portal to send her to medieval Transylvania in the past. Then we found out that Count Dalibor, his wife Olivia and the future Dracula ruled it. On the other hand, Michaela pretended to be Olivia’s midwife. The only reason behind this was that she wanted to prepare to become the Dark One’s new host body.
However, the gang of vampire hunters was led by a still-human Bathory in the area. Then Jack attacks and kills Olivia at a festival when she discovers her true identity by Florian, a villager. Consequently she is locked up in the dungeons for it. She delightedly tells Michaela how she prevented the Dark One’s rise. But the latter argues that she could only slightly change things.
