Evil Season 2, Episode 4, ‘E Is for the Lift,’ Recap & Spoiler

Here’s a spoiler-filled recap of “E Is for Elevator,” Season 2, Episode 4, of Paramount+’s Evil.

One of the limitations in writing a recap of a TV episode is that the recapper must use two-dimensional media to present a summary of the three-dimensional visual artwork. Now, usually, the written word is good enough to convey the facts and feelings of an episode, allowing the reader to experience at least part of what the viewer saw. But now and then, a visual or performance emerges that is so striking, so majestic, that it is almost impossible to put into words.

This is what it’s like to try to describe Michael Emerson’s performance as Leland Townsend, whose exorcism opens Evil’s fourth episode, “E Is for Elevator.” At one point, he was boiling like a mad dog. Next, she gave David one of the most memorable eyebrows in TV history.

Townsend has been delivering moments like this week after week (who could forget “yum yum”), so much fun for this recapper. David, on the other hand, is not happy about it. Worse, there is no end in sight, as this is only the first of several exorcisms for Leland that David must help.

While David deals with Leland, Kristen and Ben investigate the disappearance of Wyatt, a teenager who carved a pentagram on the floor of his bedroom and carved “EL Game 8-4-2-13-1” on his desk. With the help of Kristen’s daughters, they learn that it refers to the Elevator Game, a Japanese ritual in which pressing buttons on an elevator in a certain order takes the rider to hell. Failure to follow the rules of the game results in a person being haunted, and those who are haunted are ordered to carve a pentagram.

Kristen, Ben, and their daughter view security footage the last time Wyatt was seen, which shows him getting into an elevator and never getting out. Police believe he took the elevator to the roof, where there were no cameras, descended the stairs, and fled. But Kristen and Ben decide to cheer up the Elevator Game theory and give it a try. However, the building does not have a 13th floor, stopping them from completing the game.

As they leave, they run into one of Wyatt’s friends, who reveals that Wyatt’s girlfriend, Felicia, also disappeared while playing the Elevator Game. He gives Felicia’s audio recording in the elevator also struggling to figure out what to do about the lack of the 13th floor before she can be heard screaming as if she had fallen to her death.

Back at the church, David gives Leland a beaded rosary to prepare him for the next exorcism. Leland returned the favor by mocking David about the lack of representation of Blacks and his racist past. David was able to ignore it, but when he decided to talk about race and slavery for his first homily, he faced some resistance from his pastoral instructor for talking about “controversy after controversy.”

Ben calls on active and inactive Vanessa (Nicole Shalhoub) to help understand the Elevator Game, which takes him on a ghost tour of NYC. There they learn about Teke Teke, a 14-year-old girl who was cut in half by an elevator and now haunts the Wyatt building. The ghost’s name comes from the sound she makes with her fingernails as she drags her body across the floor, a sound Kristen happened to hear that same night at her house. However, it turns out that only Sheryl is watching something on her computer.

Kristen returns to the building to test the Elevator Game again, this time stopping between the 12th and 14th floors as a fix for the 13th-floor issue the team continues to face. As Kristen investigates, she hears the sound of teke teke and wails of monsters. Kristen was able to free herself just in time and gave Dr. Boggs calls, blaming the “hallucinations” on the recipe he gave her.

David spends his evenings with Kevin, a fellow black pastor in training. The two attend a soirée with some dissident Catholics, where David gets into a fight in defense of his faith and the Church. This caught the attention of a pastor from the Gospel Church, who invited David to stop by. “Come here and you’ll come home,” he said to David. “What the Catholic Church doesn’t do, we do.”

Ben decides to try the game himself and learns that Felicia and Wyatt pressed the buttons for the first and third floors, thus making the number 13. The elevator takes him to the basement, where he finds the decomposing bodies of the two teenagers. , who starved to death after the elevator doors closed, trapping them — and now Ben — below.

David, meanwhile, was permitted to deliver his full homily, but the crowd was less than expected. Whether the Church interfered or not is unclear, but there were Christians there, which mattered most to David. Also present was Leland, who was sitting in the back, happily eating his popcorn like he was returning to the theater after more than a year of quarantine.

Still trapped under the building with his cell phone battery dying, Ben begins typing the final will, writing tearful farewell messages to his family and friends. As if things weren’t going well enough, he is also visited by Abbey, his demon friend, who calls him out of his hypocrisy after he starts praying to Allah. “You’re all right now, mate,” Kristen says to a sobbing Ben. His words should be comforting. New episode streaming Sunday on Paramount+.

Masters of the Universe Proves Why He-Humans NEVER Became King of Eternity

King Randor’s life is at stake and He-Man has traveled through time to save him.

and Masters of the Universe. With adventure, enemies, and new worlds to explore, Dark Horse’s prequel to the upcoming event of the same name is a great place to visit for both new and returning fans. readers why Eternia’s greatest hero shouldn’t be her king.

This matter was open to the concerned King of Randor to see his kingdom in the middle of the night, unable to sleep due to his concern over the unpleasant electric buzzing he had heard. Prince Adam quickly sprang into action with the Sword of Power as He-Man and chased the creature away, but not before leaving his father in a coma from his psychic poison. In an attempt to save the King of Randor, the Sorceress sends He-Man through the Cosmic Corridor and into the past, bringing back a piece of Orlax that could hold the key to undoing the damage he inflicted. As He-Man returns to his gift, he witnesses the moments through which time unfolds before him, including the conversation he recently had with his father. In particular, which reminded him why he would never be able to uncover his own deepest secrets.

Prince Adam hesitated to choose a crown from the myriad of gold-plated options before him. The King of Randor understood his son’s confusion, for he too had aspirations far from the station he met. In his youth, King Randor dreamed of becoming a champion like He-Man, but fate had other plans for him. There are of course some unrevealed stories at this point, but Prince Adam’s curiosity is left to await while his father instead reaffirms the importance of keeping the scepter and royal sword separate from each other.

As King Randor explained, King Grayskull himself was the last ruler to also preside over the Power of Eternity, and since then the two roles have been separated for the betterment of the two of them. As far as the King of Randor was concerned, the secrets He-Man had to keep and the burdens he had to bear were the kinds that would make the ruler of Eternia an even bigger target than they already were. The king even jokes that if he were He-Man it would be kept a secret, the irony of his comment being completely lost on the king not knowing he was talking to his son as well as the champion Eternia.

For as long as He-Man has saved the day on the small screen and comic book pages, he has been a prime target for villains like Skeletor, who is most often preoccupied with eliminating his foes rather than overthrowing the king of Eternia. While villains like Hordak and Horde Prime have made it their mission to overtake the rest of the world, the most classic villains He-Man himself have rarely been so ambitious in their endeavors. If Prince Adam ascended the throne as He-Man, King Randor’s prediction that it would only bring in more potential usurpers would surely prove correct. Then again, assuming He-Man was able to save his father’s life, how to rule over the same kingdom he swore to protect shouldn’t be a problem for a very long time.

GI Joe Has A Terrible Connection With The Forgotten Sunbow Cartoon

There’s a dark connection between the “weirdest, meanest, most mother-unfriendly” cartoons of the 1980s and the classic GI Joe.

Welcome to the special Adventure(s) Time installment, take a look at past animated heroes. This week, we examine the forgotten franchise from the 1980s and its obscure (and dark) connection to a much more popular line from that era. Just contact me on Twitter.

Debuting in 1986, Inhumanoids is a 13-episode animated series by Sunbow Productions. Founded six years earlier by Griffin-Bacal Advertising, the studio was among the earliest animated commercials for Joe Hasbro’s GI toy line and the accompanying Marvel comic books. The ad was an instant success, leading partners Tom Griffin and Joe Bacal to form Sunbow.

Griffin and Bacal remained close to Hasbro which allowed Sunbow to produce multiple shows based on the toy giant’s properties. Critics accused the show of nothing more than a toy commercial, but Sunbow did have a legitimate desire to make quality material, and well-known writers such as Steve Gerber, Marty Pasko, and Len Wein contributed scripts, and artists such as Russ Heath and Bruce Timm provided character designs. Many of these series maintain a dedicated following to this day, and the two main Sunbow shows, GI Joe and Transformers, have become mainstays of the DVD and streaming era.

Fans of the era consider Inhumanoids to be the last major series of Sunbow’s “toy commercial” days. The plot focuses on a group of scientists called the Earth Corps, and a monstrous monster named D’Compose found encased in amber in Big Sur, California. When the Earth Corps investigates the creature, they inadvertently unleash a great evil into the world. Subsequent episodes reveal even weirder monsters, such as Tendril and Metlar, hidden around the world.

Inhumanoids was animated by Japan’s acclaimed Toei Animation and features many famous voice actors that fans will remember from this era. Chris Latta, the iconic voice behind Starscream and Cobra Commander, plays the monsters D’Compose and Tendril. Michael Bell, the voice of the heroic Duke GI Joe and even Cyclops in the X-Men pilot Pryde, plays Auger, a prominent archaeologist and Earth Corps resident mechanic.

The series did not begin as a conventional half-hour cartoon, but rather as a six- to seven-minute shortlist, aired as part of Sunbow’s Super Sunday half-hour block alongside Jem and the Hologram, Bigfoot, and the Muscle Machine, and Robotix.

A “film” collecting the early Inhumanoids arc was later released, and the Inhumanoids was expanded into its full-length series, shown in syndication. It’s nominally a kid’s show, but Inhumanoids has become famous for its adult content. Years before X-Men: The Animated Series, the Inhumanoids attempted a clear narrative line that linked the episodes in sequence, while also introducing a subplot that paid off later. The visuals use bold shadows, emphasizing the inspiration of the horror film series.

Since the Inhumanoids villains are true monsters and not armed terrorists, the show gets away with some brutal content. Gore, amputation, corrosive acid that eats monster flesh alive… these are areas rarely seen in Sunbow shows. Writer Flint Dille called it “the weirdest, meanest, most mother-unfriendly” of the Sunbow properties. Another author, Buzz Dixon, has indicated that Hasbro doesn’t care about Inhumanoid’s content after the sudden end of the toy line. As long as Sunbow doesn’t produce anything rated X, the studio is free to do as it pleases.

Hasbro’s Inhumanoids toys provide every member of the Earth Corps with action features and a “shine in the light” gimmick. However, the stars are meant to be villains. Metlar, Tendril, and D’Compose are 14-inch tall figures that are now expensive collectors’ items. At the time, however, parents were complaining about retail prices, and many kids didn’t see much game value in giant pieces of plastic. Huge Inhumanoid monsters also took up a lot of space on store shelves. All of those factors accelerated the end of the line after just one year.

The series’ lead author, Flint Dille, is frequently asked about Inhumanoids. One of the highlights that surfaced during an interview with the Excelsior Journeys podcast involved the Inhumanoids character Saber Jet, who was meant to be an action figure in the canceled second year.

Saber Jet was introduced in Episode 12, “The Masterson Team,” in which tabloid-TV journalist Hector Ramirez – a parody of Geraldo Rivera who appeared on several Sunbow shows – put to save the Statue of Liberty from Metlar.

The scene cuts to the hospital, where recovering Air Force pilot Brad Armbruster, apparently only his head encased in damaged metal, tells of how his plane was crashed over Cambodia by Metlar’s ancient rival, Slither.

That leads to the Earth Corps’ investigation into Sslither’s one-time rule over the Inhumanoids.

Many fans over the years have noticed the Saber Jet being given the real name Brad J. Armbruster, who is also the real name of Ace, the famous GI Joe fighter pilot (packed with the 1983 Skystriker XP-14F vehicle, and a mainstay in the animated series). Are they meant to be the same character? Some fans were against this, pointing out that Neil Ross voiced Saber Jet, while Pat Fraley played Ace in GI Joe. In the interview, however, Dille insists that Saber Jet is meant to be an Ace… with the addition of some pretty gruesome information.

Dille told Excelsior Journeys that, after the Ace plane crash, the robotic skeleton of the seriously injured pilot was built from the crashed Skystriker XP-14F jet. Presumably, there were more Skystrikers than Aces left after the crash. As Dille puts it, Ace “was so fucked up, they used his jet as body armor.” That’s the fate of Ace, following the original episode of GI Joe: He was mortally wounded by a monster and destined to live as a cyborg, in his beloved Skystriker jet. It’s a pretty cool cybernetic suit, but still, a shocking fate for the character.

This was the pinnacle of hardcore fan trivia, and this point of continuity was never recognized in the comic book or subsequent animated revival of GI Joe. link Ace, or the character GI Joe, to the Inhumanoids.

Seems like this trivia are too obscure for the current creators to realize — assuming there’s a huge fan base for Inhumanoids these days, given the short show and meager DVD releases. But it’s a clear relationship between traits that don’t exist.

Keri Russell y Ray Liotta protagonizarán ‘Cocaine Bear’

La directora Elizabeth Banks ha terminado de audicionar a su elenco en la película ‘Cocaine Bear’.

“La película se describe como un thriller basado en personajes inspirado en hechos reales que tuvieron lugar en 1985”, dijo Banks según lo informado por Uproxx.

Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr. y Jesse Tyler Ferguson protagonizarán este proyecto cinematográfico, que se inspira en los acontecimientos que tuvieron lugar en Kentucky en 1985.

La película se basa en una historia real, según informó The New York Times en 1985, que un oso negro de 175 libras consumió el contenido de una mochila que contenía más de 70 libras de cocaína arrojada desde un avión por un traficante de drogas local, Andrew. Thornton. El oso de 73,9 kilogramos, llamado Pablo, fue encontrado muerto más tarde por una sobredosis de la droga.

El narcotraficante más buscado, Andrew Thornton, arroja cocaína desde un avión al hábitat de Pablo en el Bosque Nacional Chattahoochee, Georgia, Estados Unidos. Thornton, quien también saltó del avión, fue encontrado muerto porque su paracaídas no funcionaba correctamente.

En ese momento, la policía no encontró evidencia de contrabando de cocaína cerca del cuerpo de Thornton. Pero tres meses después, los agentes encontraron la cocaína cuando encontraron a Pablo muerto. La policía sospecha que Pablo, el oso, murió de una sobredosis luego de ingerir cocaína.

Una publicación reciente de Banks en las redes sociales revela que el actor y director se mudaron a Irlanda para comenzar la producción de ‘Cocaine Bear’.

Si bien la historia real que describe la película tiene lugar en Georgia, nada requiere que Banks filme allí. Pero Irlanda fue hasta hace poco el hogar de muchas áreas de bosques y colinas verdes que se asemejan al Parque Nacional Chattahoochee. Será interesante ver a todo este elenco reunirse, ya que cada uno ha demostrado talento en sus películas anteriores.

Jimmy Warden escribirá el guión del thriller, que se rodó en Irlanda a finales de agosto. Los detalles de la trama en sí todavía se mantienen en secreto.
