This is definitely seeming like "A Way*" to retcon Anansi wholesale---I have no idea where they are going with some of these threads now, even compared to some of the ones from last season.

They are really hitting it out of the park with guest stars.

I find the show interesting enough to keep watching, but the pace has glacial this season.

Soooo the accusations against Marilyn Manson make this season quite a bit more yikes.

Xfinity got rid of the package that had Stars on it, and I'm not paying extra for one show.
Can anyone give me a brief synopsis of what's happening this season?

Not to diminish his actions, but heís been in the show a few minutes this season, and from what I understand only had a single appearance more to go.

I get the impression that this was a storyline they were going to get back to in 4-5 seasons, or however long they are imagining this show being on air.

Every scene between Blythe Danner and Ian McShane is great. I love watching veteran actors get to play off each other like that. I just wish there was more of it.

I like all the actors and I like the set-pieces, but man this plot is such a drag. I wish they would move it along a bit.

Bilquis got broken out, Technical Boy apparently went into hiding, and Laura reunited with Shadow.

Party Membership is a Democracy, The Weave is Not.

A fledgling vampire? How about a dragon, or some half-kobold druids? Perhaps a spontaneous sex change? Anything that can happen, will happen the results will be beyond entertaining.


So Technical Boy is not the spirit of innovation, but instead the spirit of flash-in-the-pan lovely pseudo-tech?

I think it still fits.

I think the intent was that back in the day she was an ancient goddess of something else, who then got morphed into a sex goddess by the perceptions of others warping her nature.

This season has been pretty good. The show's never going to look as good as season 1, and it's never going to have anything as good as the police interview scene either, but I'm enjoying it a lot.

I'm still liking the show enough to watch, but we are over half way through the season and i'm struggling to think of anything significant that happened.

The Demeter plotline just got dropped. Something is going on with Technical Boy but we don't know what, and there is possibly a murderer on the loose in a small town.

Book spoilers:
To me, Trejo was clearly on the phone with Wednesday, but I'm wondering how given that we've seen Wednesday needs to use phones so I wonder how that happened with him being in the hospital. Maybe he was talking to Cordelia who is more in the know than Shadow?

I'm not so sure on that since the more people in on the grift, the more who can give the game away.


I've been watching the show with my Dad who hadn't read the book, and last week he finally downloaded the Anniversary edition and is halfway through it now.

I think this is my biggest problem with the show. They spend so much time on Wednesday doing things that then vanish into thin air and all it does is serve as something for someone to reference later to say it didn't work. All of Wednesday's plans are self defeating, why is anyone worried about him?

I don't know why they insist on using the "plants growing/ungrowing very quickly" and "petals and such" VFX for the goddesses. It doesn't look good.

I havenít read the book but I had the sensation they were trying to redo the Easter arc but now that she bounced Iím not really sure what the point was except to have something for Wednesday to do while the book plot of buttfuck wi is going on.
