Because we’re quickly becoming SUPER-obsessed with this show (check out our review of the first episode here), we’re taking a break from Met Gala gownery to drop some previews for the next episode.
But first, here’s Ms. Starz to give us the deetz:
“As Mr. Wednesday begins recruitment for the coming battle, Shadow Moon travels with him to Chicago and agrees to a very high stakes game of checkers with the old Slavic god, Czernobog. The second episode of STARZ Original Series “American Gods,” this Sunday, May 7th at 9 PM ET/PT.”
We’ve watched the screener for this episode too many times to count already, so we can tell you in a non-spoiler way that Cloris Leachman is an utter delight, as she almost always is, and her chemistry with Ian McShane is fairly amazing. This is also the debut of Gillian Anderson’s character. We will give nothing away save this: Lorenzo is a huge Gillian Anderson fan. LOVES her. But he came into this show pretty cold and didn’t know she was in it. Her introduction was so hypnotic and her performance so intense that Lorenzo didn’t even recognize her at first. “Who is this actress? She’s amazing!”
Also introduced this episode is Orlando Jones, in a scene that we have no doubt will be talked about as much as Bilquis’ rather unforgettable one from the premiere.
It keeps getting better.
