It's not about making sense or not, it's about not going for a boring piece of shit garbage explanation. I honestly cannot digest that there was absolutely no other, more interesting and original plot that could be used (even one totally made up), instead they opted for pulling this shit. It's frankly sad and frustrating, like watching a scarab continously ram it's head against a wall until it dies.

...Why, is the current page's exposition not enough? In case nobody noticed yet, this whole comic is bananas.

I think you're overthinking waaay too much, In the show dracula was a lecherous vampire seeking to bite young and beautiful women, he mistakenly popped in Mina's house and was charmed by her kiddy innocence and that's basically all that drives the show's shenanigans; Dracula dropping by to play with Mina.
