Second Season Episodes

For the second season, there was only one cast change. Since Nick and Schanke transferred to the 96th Precinct, they must answer to a new captain - Captain Cohen, a no-nonsense, by-the-book commanding officer. The second season also brought the return of LaCroix in the flesh. He was "much too old and powerful" to be killed by being staked and burned. He's back and causing trouble for Nick.

During this season we learn a little bit more about the other cast members. We see LaCroix as a Roman General before being brought across; we see Janette as a young woman being forced to work in a brothel; and we see Don Schanke as more than just a smart-mouth cop - he is a devoted family man. Meanwhile, Nick and Natalie still are searching for the cure.
