Just finished watching and it had the same feel as season one to me. The pace was fine, visuals superb, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Looking forward to Ep. 2!

I loved the whole episode truly some A+ shit.

level 2

That rocked.

Heavy on the exposition but it sure makes the plot move fast.
I've got a firm handle on the gods and what each want, now, too.

Much as I love Fuller's cinematography I wonder if they hadn't been coy about the story is about we wouldn't have more viewers now.

No brownie points for subtlety on TV, just cancellations.

This has a better chance at Seasons 3 & 4 than a Fuller lead production would, good luck to him at his next job.

Did Sweeney just get lucky? He slipped on blood while being targeted. Perhaps a quick death is too fortunate of an ending for him.

level 2

Did Sweeney just get lucky?

remember that laura has his lucky coin, but its still his coin. she just traded luck with him. likely will happen again in the future as i think the both of them are tied to each other

level 3

Good point and kind of funny that Laura ends up getting shot with that bullet (which has zero consequences).

level 4

Might be Laura's luck needs Sweeney alive? I've just read in a review that this won't be the last time Sweeney's down (up) on his luck this season...

Did no-one notice Bilquis seemed to be holding a shiny gold object after the kiss?


Edit: Just went back and it looks like it might just be a ring

I thought it was a lock of hair from Laura

level 2

Haha maybe he doesn't deserve an end at all. Might be why he's still around all these years latter.

level 2

I think it's more based on Laura.

Laura has his luck, his good luck.

And that spills over to him because she doesnt want him dead. Uncomfortable? In pain? Tired? Sure, he's a dick and deserves it.

But not death, so her luck has him slip and dodge a literal bullet but also land flat on his face.

Aren’t you worried about cancer? Czernobog chuckles “I am cancer!”

level 2

I really wish they had included the follow-up, though: "Why would I be afraid of myself?"

One of my favorite lines in the whole book.

level 3

I didn’t quite get this joke. Is czernobog an iteration of cancer or something.?

Czernobog is the god of death.

The carousel scene was beautiful. The music, the cinematography. Everything. The gods meeting was perfect. Most of all I loved seeing Czernobog and Anansi in their god forms. Gave me goosebumps. Mad Sweeney drinking while being shot at was fucking hilarious. Czernobog's monologue after Zorya was shot was incredible. I can't wait to see more.

level 2

Yes friend. Czernobog's curse is good !

Today we take a shot of whiskey for Zorya Vechernyaya. Stolichnaya for Vechernyaya. Yeah is good !

level 3

Is good.
