As someone who binged the third season – okay, truthfully speaking I am just three episodes away from completely it because it’s such an amazing fun burn I don’t want to end – every episode is packed with fun, craziness and ample story-writing.
Whether you’re looking at Shadow Moon’s new hairstyle, adapting to massive plot twists or loving those Wale cameos, you’re going to be sucked into each episode. For those of you still playing catch-up and need a refresher on what this season is all about. The official synopsis is below.
In Season Three of “American Gods,” dangerous secrets intensify the inevitable war building between the Old Gods of mythology and the New Gods of technology. When Shadow Moon discovers that his boss, Mr. Wednesday, is not only one of the Old Gods but is also his father, Shadow attempts to break away and find his own path. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow puts down roots in the idyllic, snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin — but this small town holds dark and bloody secrets that force him to accept his destiny. Rather than facing a choice between divinity or humanity, Shadow must now decide just what kind of god he wants to be.
July 27 can’t come soon enough and with Rick Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber – to an extent – and Crispin Glover all around for the ride, you’re going to have a 10-episode thrill ride you’ll want to enjoy over and over again.
