What the hell just happened in the final episode of the season? Queen Bilquis does her best to explain...

Based on Neil Gaiman‘s bestselling novel, American Gods follows the war building between the Old Gods of mythology and the New Gods of technology. When ex-con Shadow Moon’s (Ricky Whittle) service is recruited by Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), he soon learns that this mysterious man is the Norse All-Father god Odin who also happens to be Shadow’s father.

In Season 3, Shadow settles in the snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin in an effort to avoid his apparent destiny and mask his own path guided by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas. He’ll soon learn that you can’t reject being a god as he discovers the town’s waters run deep, dark and bloody. The only choice he does have? Deciding what kind of god he’s going to be.
