Olivia Godfrey, a 150+ year old vampire (or more exactly, a upir), can see her reflection in the mirror. One episode of Hemlock Grove, pictured below, makes a big point of showing this to the audience.
Is she using her powers of mesmerism to make her reflection seem real? Or is she a type of variant species that can use mirrors like normal people? Or is this a hopelessly inept continuity error?
I understand that her species is able to endure direct sunlight without burning, but cannot find info about how she interacts with mirrors. Or why this particular scene was so blatant.
Question: what's the story with Olivia and mirrors?
