When Gillian Anderson announced she would not be returning to Starz hit show American Gods, the question arose whether they would recast the role or go in a new direction. Today that question was answered. The show will introduce a new character that will replace Gillian’s character, Media.
Last week on American Gods, we didn’t spend much time with Shadow, Wednesday or any of the Gods Old or New. But we did get a hell of exposition as it relates to Laura Moon, what she’s been doing before and after her fellatio-related auto accident. Thanks to Mad Sweeny’s coin, she’s now an undead super zombie, capable of destroying the Technical Boy’s drones with a flick of the wrist. Her death gave her a newfound appreciation for her “puppy” and she now wants to find him. Even though she’s back in the real world, the nothingness of death awaits her when her task is completed.
