American Gods Season 3 Episode 9 Recap
The ninth episode of ‘American Gods’ season 3, titled ‘The Lake Effect,’ sees Shadow return home to his lakeside house and find that Derek has hung himself. Chad and Shadow are both devastated at what looks like a suicide on the troubled kid’s part. However, when Shadow finds Allison’s coat in Derek’s room, he and Chad grow suspicious. After a little psychedelic trip of Shadow’s trademark visions, we learn that it is Anne Marie who has been kidnapping the kids and offering them as sacrifices to the Norse Gods.
A gun-toting Chad arrives and fires at Anne Marie, who is invulnerable to the bullets. Shadow grabs the knife hanging on the wall, which was once used by the Norse gods, and slits open Anne Marie’s throat while she is distracted by Chad. With Anne Marie dead, the town slumps back into its previous state of bad luck. Elsewhere, Laura is learning to use Odin’s spear under Doyle’s guidance. However, she doesn’t make a lot of progress, and Doyle lends her his lucky coin so she won’t miss her mark when she comes face to face with Wednesday.
Laura longs for companionship, considering this could very well be her last day, should she fail to kill Wednesday. She tries to have sex with Doyle but changes her mind as she realizes it’s a bad habit she’s used to. Wednesday approaches the leader of New Gods, Mr. World, and tries to hold peace talks. Mr. World instead asks Wednesday to surrender, which prompts Wednesday to recede in his peace talks. As he steps outside the planetarium, Laura arrives and hurls the spear towards Wednesday. With the help of her lucky coin, her aim is immaculate. The spear pierces through Wednesday, and he falls to the ground, seemingly dead.
