So, some of my worry has started to get answered here. We’re getting a lot of direct answers to a lot of questions, which is good because there is only one episode left for the season. I’m not saying there won’t be a twist, but things are feeling pretty solid. I’m starting to feel pretty confident about what is real and what is all in David’s head.
So, anyway, we have a name now for our demon parasite, in The Shadow King, Faruk. Most of the episode follows the exploits of everyone trying to escape from the prison that The Shadow King has created for them, including David himself. I’m kind of curious, maybe I’m forgetting something, but it’s not clear where Ptonomy is most of this episode. He wakes up at the end with everyone else but he doesn’t show up at all in the Asylum, not that I noticed.
I’m still not sure how The Eye or Oliver fit in either. The Eye bites it though, rather unceremoniously, so we may never get answers. Oliver seems to have escaped with the others, but I’m not sure how he got trapped there in the first place.
Probably the most exciting bit, right near the beginning, we get a glimpse and a hint, of the wheelchair, the one used by David’s real father.
