‘What We Do In The Shadows’ episode 5 shows Colin’s new powers


What We Do In The Shadows season 2 episode 5 aired on Wednesday on FX, and it revealed some of Colin Robinson’s new powers.

In a spoiler report, episode 5 of vampire-themed mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows focused on Colin (played by Mark Proksch). Every fan knows that the character is different from the others because of his nature.

Colin is an energy vampire, which allows him to walk in broad daylight and even work in an office. He is not affected in any way with religious imagery and even has a reflection on mirrors.

He feeds off by draining the energy of humans and vampires in person or online by just boring them. His workplace is his source of food, and it gives him the same satisfaction that Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Nandor (Kayvan Novak), and Laszlo (Matt Berry) get whenever they drink blood.

Colin’s promotion

In episode 5, the show gives a deeper look into Colin’s capabilities. He got promoted as a boss in the company that he works for, which gave him a boost of energy as well as power.

Colin hasn’t always been a favorite among his roommates because of his way of feeding. They couldn’t tell if he is genuine or if he is feeding, so they made him an outcast.

But when he got promoted, he got the undivided attention of his employees. It allowed him also to feed more than he usually does.

New power

The promotion also made his draining technique stronger than ever. He usually feeds by telling a long boring story to drain others. But with his level up, a bad joke and a flash of his finger guns will instantly make any employee collapse.

It allowed him to accumulate lots of excess energy, which in turn made him gain new powers and side effects. Colin was even able to master his new power without practicing.

One of the powers he developed was the ability to levitate objects by simply just pointing at them. Another power he gained was floating, which he got after feeding off from Nandor and Nadja, who were fighting.

Nandor and Nadja were surprised to see Colin floating for the first time. In addition to that, Colin’s physical appearance also changed. First, he grew some hair fast after being always bald.

Then he realized that his head had been swelling. The third discovered power is his ability to duplicate. This happened after his fellow vampires tried to escape from his feeding on them. They aged rapidly and became lethargic because of Colin.

Catch more of What We Do in the Shadows season 2 every Wednesday at 10 pm ET/PT on FX.
