Slink (Colin Cunningham) isn’t giving up his job without a fight.

According to the synopsis for Season 1, episode 7 of “Blood Drive,” Slink unleashes a demon from the belly of Heart Enterprises to exact his revenge after he was fired from being the racemaster of “Blood Drive.”

In the trailer for the episode, Slink enlists Christopher’s (Thomas Dominique) help to free the ghoul-looking demon, which has been locked away in the bowls of hell for 50 years. As seen in the promo clip, the demon is hungry for murder, brutally killing anyone who comes his way. Arthur (Alan Ritchson) tries to stop the demon’s killing spree, but the well-meaning cop only finds himself being tossed into mid-air before falling hard on top of a car.

In Season 1, episode 6, Old Man Heart (Sean Cameron Michael) — the head of Heart Enterprises — told Slink that they no longer need him. “Between the Meadeville fiasco and the escapades at Kane Hill, you’ve lost control,” Old Man Heart told Slink. “Our in-house viewership has spiked to an all-time high since you’ve been absent. We’re going public. ‘Blood Drive’ will air worldwide starting next Wednesday without you.”

Shocked by what he heard, Slink argued that they wouldn’t be able to introduce “Blood Drive” to a wider audience without his help. “You can’t just plop the ‘Blood Drive’ into people’s home without my guiding hand,” said the “Blood Drive” creator. “A work like this needs singular voice, an artist. And I will not compromise my vision for anyone.”

But Old Man Heart insisted that Heat Enterprises no longer needs him. In fact, Old Man Heart wants to kill Slink, but a prior deal between the two prevents the former from doing that.

Apparently, Heart Enterprise didn’t have to look that far for Slink’s replacement, because as revealed in a sneak peek from Season 1, episode 7, the new face of “Blood Drive” is none other “Blood Drive” racer, the Gentleman (Andrew Hall).

In a recent interview with TVLine, series creator James Roland said that Season 1, episode 7 is actually a “character piece.” “It s kind of like the Slink showcase,” Rolland added of the next week’s episode. “[If] Bugs Bunny is always winning, [it] is fun for like 10 minutes. But for [a season running] 13 hours, you need to find dimensions. And Slink is most interesting when he’s bouncing back and forth between total control and no control.”

“Blood Drive” Season 1, episode 7, titled “The Gentleman’s Agreement,” airs on Wednesday, July 26 at 10 p.m. EDT on Syfy.
