I’m interested in this bit of Van Helsing’s dialogue from today’s Dracula - especially the bolded part:
But of the most blessed of all, when this now Un-Dead be made to rest as true dead, then the soul of the poor lady whom we love shall again be free. Instead of working wickedness by night and growing more debased in the assimilating of it by day, she shall take her place with the other Angels.
If we assume Van Helsing knows what he’s talking about here (IMO not a totally safe assumption), I think this tells us a lot about what it means to be a vampire in this universe. In this and previous entries, Lucy’s vampiric self has been presented as a different entity than her ordinary human self; she’s not been transformed so much as she’s been possessed. But her soul is still in danger, even though it’s not her doing vampire stuff in her body, and I think this quote explains why.
Here’s how I read it. Lucy’s soul isn’t free; it’s still stuck in the body now dominated by the vampiric will. She, or at least her body, is “working wickedness by night,” and even though that’s not her fault it still has an adverse effect on her - she spends the daylight hours basically stewing in the rancid vibes built up by the Lucy-vampire’s actions, and she can’t help but be affected by that. So if she spends long enough as a vampire, her soul will probably become corrupted and evil - not because she’s at fault for the vampire’s actions, nor even because her free will has truly been subverted, but because sharing such very close quarters with such an evil presence, without any power to counteract that evil in any tangible way, without any other company or positive influence, and probably without being entirely lucid… well, eventually it rubs off on a person. (Also I feel like there might be something going on with the body as part of one’s identity, and the body-soul distinction not being quite as neatly drawn as we tend to think of it - but that’s a lot to get into.)
It’s interesting that this seems to imply a model of sin as sickness rather than a judicial model, which is not at all what I’d expect from a western Christian of the Victorian era. Cheers, Bram, I guess.
(Tolkien-related sidenote: it makes me think of the making of orcs from elves - I remember reading a Tolkien quote somewhere that said something like “Morgoth would stupefy the elven fëa with horror, then feed the hröa on ghastly things.” It was something sort of like that anyway. Okay, Tolkien fan aside over.)

Steve: You are such a nerd.
Eddie: Admit it, it’s why you love me.
Steve: Excuse me?
Eddie: Think about it Harrington. Everyone you love, or have ever loved, in any way, is a nerd.
Steve: Nancy was …
Eddie: The smartest over achiever we know. She may be cool, but she is still a nerd.
Steve: Lucas is on the basketball team.
Eddie: And in Hellfire Club
Steve: . . .
Eddie: 😁
Steve: Max! Max is super cool. In your face Munson. In your stupid face.
Eddie: 😁
Steve: Why are you smiling? I found someone I love that isn’t a nerd.
Eddie: you also basically admitted you love me.
Steve: You didn’t already know that? Some nerd you are.
