Well things appeared a little indecisive in the editing department. This episode gave us blood that appears, disappears and changes color. I would have to imagine that CN's BS&P aren't quite sure how to deal with this storyline. Their current editing strategy isn't going to leave much of this story arc unless they find some way to modify it appropriately.
