American Gods Season 2 Episode 1 House On The Rock

At the close of last season we saw Easter/Ostara stretched her muscles and call forth her power and called Spring to end. Odin did the same to reveal himself to Shadow as well as show off for Mr. World, Media and Technical Boy. Mad Sweeney told Laura who had her killed. It was revealed to be Mr. Wednesday who is Odin himself.

Meanwhile, in a tension filled car Shadow, Mr. Wednesday/Odin, Mad Sweeney and Laura are taking a road trip. They are heading to the House On The Rock built by Frank Lloyd Wright.

I am a wife, mother, writer and nerd. My dad cultivated my love of sci-fi as a child and I haven’t looked back since. I love myth and magic. I am an avid reader and love TV and movies. I love the movies Willow and Legend and the Star Trek ones both old and new. Laurell K. Hamilton, who writes the Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series, and Jim Butcher, who writes the Harry Dresden series, are probably my top two favorite authors. I love learning and writing about mythology and there is so much out there to learn, see and imagine. Come fly away with me.
