Leonardo Da Vinci ( Tom Riley) is coming face to face with a whole new kind of demon with the introduction of Vlad Dracula ( Paul Rhys) in Friday's (May 17) episode of "Da Vinci's Demons."

The synopsis of the episode is as follows:

A clue from the Turk about the Book of Leaves sends Leonardo to Wallachia, where he encounters Vlad Dracula. Lorenzo and Piero meet the Duke of Urbino. The search for the true spy continues.

New clips from the episode encompass very different sides of the Vlad Dracula character, one showing the original vampire as a gracious but creepy host, while the other finds him trying to kill poor Leonardo and Zoroaster ( Gregg Chillin). He's Dracula though, so that has to be expected.

"Da Vinci's Demons" airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz. Three episodes remain in season one.
