Synopsis: An angry mob corners Ash and the time in Brock’s house while Ruby tries to summon the spell to send Baal back to hell.
Review: Picking up from where things left off. Ash and the team have taken shelter in Brock’s old house and Pablo is still somewhat sick from the Book of The Dead manifesting inside of him, but Ruby sees this as a chance to find the spell to send Baal back to hell and proceeds to set up a ritual that can achieve this.
Meanwhile Baal has gained influence over Sheriff Emery and has organised an angry mob to go after Ash.
Back at Brock’s house Ash’s long dead sister Audrey has shown up and proved to be somewhat of a pain in the butt and even goes as far as seducing Ash’s best mate Chet as only a Deadite can and then kills him.
While all this is happening Ruby is struggling to get the ritual right, but after a pep talk from Kelly. Pablo mans up and pretty much manages to produce the spell that Ruby needs.
Ash takes is family issues with his Deadite sister outside and shows the angry mob that he is fighting evil demons and not the murderer that they seem to believe him to be. The celebrations are short lived as Baal shows up and takes Ash on.
This was a fun episode, which revealed a few new things. Most notably. Ruby is now mortal having had to sacrifice her immortality for her now deceased children.
I liked the idea of Pablo manifesting the book. It only makes sense given that he was wearing the book cover for a face mask at the tail end of last year. Question is will Ruby be able to get the whole book from Pablo without killing him or will Pablo eventually gain control and be able to use the book inside of him to fight the deadites and be an asset for the team.
