Dramatic visuals, graphic violence and sex combined to make one of the most unique shows in recent TV history. Extreme close-ups and the excessive use of slow motion emphasized strange details, sometimes at the expense of dialog. An observant viewer could find Easter eggs galore in all the chaos of the first few episodes that would eventually lead to big revelations.
Hand in hand with the strange visuals of American Gods was its capacity to deal out numerous mind-blowing moments. The series slowly unspooled its truth at an almost maddeningly slow pace, but kept us interested by frequently offering some truly awesome scenes. Sometimes those scenes were surreal and saturated with blood, while other times they were simple story points that turned the whole show upside down.
Those moments helped move the story along, but at the same time, left the audience with even more questions.. American Gods made a definitive declaration about what kind of show it was from the very first episode. The audience watched as a voluptuous and seductive woman led a middle-aged man back to her room, wondering, as the man did, what she could possibly want with him. As they began their love-making, his awe at her beauty and sexiness took on an odd quality.
Although it made sense that he was amazed that she chose him to sleep with, the gratitude he showed her was just too much. Then, an even more curious thing happened. The woman seemed to grow. As she grew bigger, her enormous size was too obvious to ignore, except for the man, who had no idea what was happening, until he disappeared into her vagina. The nudity, graphic sex and the man's disappearance announced that American Gods was a very different TV show.
By the second episode of American Gods , anyone unfamiliar with the novel was wondering what the heck was going on. Like Shadow, the audience was becoming aware that there was a story behind the story, and that nothing was as it seemed. Although Shadow had seen some weird things so far, he still wasn't convinced any of it was real.
He started to change his mind after spending time on a rooftop with Zorya Polunochnaya, the Midnight Star. Her night gig was to keep Simargl, the doomsday hound chained to Polaris, from devouring Ursa Minor. She also restored the sun at the end of every night.
For Shadow, she plucked the moon from the sky and handed it to him, gifting him with a lucky coin. Before the season finale, none of the gods had demonstrated their full power.
Their power had been teased and alluded to, but none of it was on full display. Then, Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday rolled up to Easter's house for her yearly celebration. Easter herself was pretty, charming, colorful and mannerly.
Nothing about her appearance hinted at her terrific power. Explorers Room with Flash Strap. Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt.
