We’re all still stressed and distressed from the dark sorcery shenanigans that took HBO’s series-of-the-moment “Lovecraft Country” to mind-blowing heights with a heavy splash of WTF.
If you were lost, don’t worry, we got you, and pieced together that one of Atticus’s ancestors was a slave forced to work for Titus Braithwaite–the mysterious figure with the very gaudy and very creepy estate in the small New England town.
Titus founded the Sons of Adam cult obsessed with the biblical Garden of Eden that they want to enter to gain eternal life. Known to treat slaves kindly, Titus impregnated Atticus’s ancestor who barely escapes from the plantation with her life after a ritual gone terribly wrong.
Our boy Atticus is the last living direct descendant of this cruel lineage making him very important to the Sons of Adam who kidnapped his father to lure him to Ardham where they would, once again, attempt the spooky ritual that went left the first time.
It doesn’t take Atticus long to leverage his birthright to improve accommodations inside the estate after a rather uncomfortable bout with Black magic. However, the cult’s current leader Samuel Braithwaite forces Atticus to participate in that ritual (that they probably should stop doing) open a portal directly to Eden so Samuel and his followers can be eternalized.
At one point, the ritual appears to be working until things go wrong (yet again) and a vision of Atticus’s ancestor guides him out of the estate as it crumbles and the cult turns to stone.
Whether any cult members actually survived, we don’t know (yet), but our joy from Atticus’s escape quickly turned into terror when we see Uncle George dead after being shot earlier in the episode.
Whew, it was quite the hour-long ride that gave us two posts worth of wild, crazy and hilarious tweets/memes continued on the flip.
“The yts when Atticus told them to get the f*ck out” – you know what…
“Me watching #LovecraftCountry not knowing what’s going on” – this was us
“When Atticus’ dad was like I didn’t ask for you to come save me, my ass would’ve been like “Oh so you wanna stay?” – maaaaaaan
“Me, 12 hours later, thinking about that white girl casually delivering a breech monster from a cow” – we’ll never un-see it
“these targaryens…” – SKRESSFUL
“So the theme of #lovecraftcountry is stress…got it” – we’ll probably need a shot after every episode
“I watch #LovecraftCountry for the plot.
The plot:” – we appreciate the honesty
“That was just episode 2 tho. I can’t” – every episode should come with liquor
“LISTEN! If it’s one thing the ancestors gone do, is cover us! She got him up outta there!” – Whew!
