Warning: This post contains spoilers from the season 3 premiere of “American Gods”.
Coming to an end American godsThe premiere Sunday, the shadow moon descends Lakeside, a sleepy town, he will spend a lot of season 3 here. The weather was very cold, and Shadow did not have a suitable coat to avoid the winter in Wisconsin. Therefore, he quickly walked into the grocery store and tried to drive to his new apartment, where he received the warmest welcome from the owner, Ann-Marie Hinzelmann.
At the moment of encountering Shadow, Ann-Marie (actor: Saturday night live Veterinarian Julia Sweeney treats him like her friend for many years. Well, it wasn̵
This is a moment you will miss in the blink of an eye, but Shadow did notice (though he didn’t say anything). So are we. So when TVLine recently chatted with Ricky Whittle, we asked him. How is this going:
TV line | When Shadow entered Ann-Marie Hinzelmann’s store, she mentioned him by name without telling him, right?
[[[[Long pause] American gods Be blessed…
TV line | Wait, let’s talk about the quote you avoided again, because I laughed so hard that it was difficult to copy.
[[[[laughing out loud] American gods Full of Easter eggs. In the world of science fiction and fantasy that I love, talented listeners bring us gifts, so you don’t have to work hard. If you watch it, we have told you everything you need to know. For example, Neil Gaiman told you everything you need to know in Chapter 1 of Chapter 1… But it is so finely and carefully arranged, for example, at that moment, once you Seeing the whole show, playing it, and then going back to watch it again, then you realize, “He just said that. She just said that. Of course, everything makes sense now! They knew it from the beginning.” These are the moments. Therefore, there will always be moments for your attention, personality traits, what they say, what they do. Always very charming.
Hmm… right? Record: Whittle is as charming as ever, but he cannot answer. For the record: The series is based on Neil Gaiman’s novels without questionable exchanges-the introductions of Shadow and Hinzelmann are straightforward there-but this is by no means the only place to deviate from the source material for the next season. For example, in the book, Rich Hinzelmann is male. (If you have read American gods, Please don’t destroy what is not in the comments. )
Overall, this episode feels like the beginning of a creative season. (I have watched the first few episodes; so far, the trend continues.) Here are some other notable events that occurred in the “Winter Stories”:
*The crowd pigeons attending a concert on Wednesday doubled their respect for half-parents. When he reached the stage, lead singer John (played by goth rock singer Marilyn Manson) took off his sword and kneeled in front of him, showing his loyalty.
*In New Orleans, Laura’s attempt to resurrect Mad Sweeney after cutting off her coins was counterproductive-ending her lifelessness and turning her into dust. However, nearby, the resurrection juice bottle she bought from a local witch woman broke and dripped near her pile of powder.
*Mr. World chose to appear as Ms. World (by postureDominique Jackson (Dominique Jackson) was dissatisfied because he was enthusiastic about the crowd surfing event on Wednesday (rather than the “new god” message). When one of the millennials who worked for her didn’t take her anger seriously, she raised a baseball bat and beat him into a paste, while the technical boy and her other staff were dispelled by his blood. She reminded Tech Boy that New Gods tried to build a channel to everyone’s brain, but they had trouble getting funding. Then she sent him to bring Bilquis to them. He was unsuccessful, and Bilquis applied some blows to him through touch, which put him in trouble.
*Early in the episode, let Shadow accompany him to meet Whiskey Jack in Winttybago’s latest incarnation on Wednesday. They entered an evil cool, northern lights-like sky, and entered a different dimension, but “Shadow” was the only one who had a meaningful connection with Whiskey Jack. The mysterious person (a god?) told him that he has a fulfilled destiny, “So don’t mess up, otherwise everything will end.” When Wednesday and Shadow returned to the real world, Cordelia met them. Cordelia was killed on Wednesday. Young woman introduced as fiance. Before he and Cordelia took off, Wednesday reminded his son that there was a paid apartment waiting for him by the lake. Shadow said: “When I make my own decision, I will do better.” But when he tried to take the bus to other places, a sudden winter storm confirmed that he was indeed going to the lake.
*At the end of the episode, Shadow tries to break into his apartment in the key lock. At that moment, he realized that someone was pointing at his neck at the muzzle, so he slowly raised his hand.
