There wasn't any vampire plotting in season 1 silly, there was evil church plotting. And the main trio were in Alucard's tomb for half the series, not a library.>>112951314
Canonically the Church was basically good but overworked an under-equppied to deal with vampire shit right? That's why the Belmonts had so much support from them. I vaguely remember Drac used magic to drive the peasents against the Belmont family, that's why Trevor was the first to come home in years. Is that right? Just not the church riling them up.
