January 26, 2021 5:59 AM - Season 3, Episode 3 - Subscribe

Wednesday pays a visit to his wife, Shadow pays a visit to Bilquis, and Laura visits her past.

AV Club: American Gods delves into “Ashes & Demons” and comes up with its best episode in years

Unlike my earlier posts, this one is "Books Included" as we're swinging back toward plot elements found in the novel.

While I kinda sorta mostly understand the big movements in the story at this point between Wednesday and the Old Gods and Ms. World and the New Gods, the whole Bilquis storyline honestly sort of feels like an excuse for some tiddies and sex, unconnected to everything else that's going on. Yeah, ok, _recently_ she got involved with tech boy because ... apparently sex needs the boost? ok fine sure why not.

Given that the mythology here is that humans create gods, I wonder if afterlives are born from human imagination as well and are as diverse as gods, or if its a fundamental reality?
