American Gods Season 3 Episode 8 Recap

The eighth episode of ‘American Gods’ season 3, titled ‘The Rapture of Burning,’ brings some major revelations and power shifts. Laura and Salim arrive at the Grand Peacock Inn in the present day. Almost immediately after arriving at the inn, they split up as Laura goes looking for Liam Doyle. Meanwhile, Salim grapples with his inner demons and tries to come to terms with his past. His attraction to a handsome bellhop, Kai, eventually turns into a hook-up, and Salim has sort of a spiritual awakening.

Laura tries to convince Liam to help her find Odin’s spear with the help of Sweeney’s lucky coin, and he agrees after making Laura promise not to use the weapon for destruction or violence. Laura also has a moment of self-awakening and finally accepts that Sweeney is dead. She begins to grieve after sprinkling Sweeney’s ashes in a river. Liam arrives with the spear and hands it to Laura, who has a specific purpose planned for the weapon – using it to kill Mr. Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Shadow is kidnapped by Dr. Tyrell and taken to his hideout. He summons Wednesday, and two come to blows in their complete God appearances. Seeing the two fight, Shadow intervenes and distracts Tyrell allowing Wednesday to finish off Tyrell. Wednesday tells Shadow that he is now free to live a normal having completed his promise, and disappears.
