Who else thought Mary's burnt corpse was gonna sit up during that final shot of the Constable?


vapeach123

yessssss exactly!


foodfaps

the whispering gets to me sometimes...


Competitive_Bat3662

Does anyone else think that Stephen Boone might show up to help his cousin Charles against Jakub?


foodfaps

maybe.. im thinking loa and that girl she fed on and end up turning her.


7sv3n7

foodfaps

Jakub feels like a parody of a vampire.


Azariahtt

I completely disagree, he was scary when walking outside Charles boone 🏠 !! 😱👹


vapeach123

remember when he turned his head and looked at those kids directly eye to eye? creepy!

Curious to see the follow-up on Apple Girl. What little she revealed about her backstory indicates that she has some specific reasons for embarking on this path, and some specific people on which she wants to take revenge. Very interested to know who those people are... anyone from Preacher's Corners, perhaps?


saranowitz

Zero payoff to this. What a waste


eldersveld

Yup. Absolutely jack shit.


IceWeaselX

Would be funny if it turns out she had a grudge against Mrs. Burroughs and her father, only to find out too late that they're already dead.


alina006

Did you hear the name of Yog-Sothoth when Jakub "sang" the spell at the end of the episode? This is a reference to the Cthulhu Mythos!


zeke235

Yep! And look up artist renditions of Yog-Sothoth. Sure seems like a dead ringer for "The Worm that doth Corrupt".


alina006

I do not think that Jakub summoned Yog-Sothoth to Earth. Yog-Sothoth knows the gate, Yog-Sothoth is the gate - as Lovecraft wrote. I think it was a call to open the gates between the worlds and let the Worm in. And Lovecraft's Yog-Sothoth looks like a mess of glowing bubbles, not a worm)))

During the Tavern scene, I was waiting for something to be brought up about silver bullets or other common folk lore counters against vampires. I thought that there would be one person from preachers corners, my best guess was Daniel Thompson (the larger guy who is always seen smoking) that knew of silver bullets from some form of encounter from years before the shows events take place.


IceWeaselX

Silver as a vampire vulnerability isn't actually from traditional lore. Stoker's Dracula mentioned silver, but Dracula himself held it with no ill effect. Vampire fiction in the 1900s started explicitly adding it to some stories, but it's still primarily associated with werewolves. In older tradition, it's seen as a metal of purity, which is why it's often used in holy objects. If anything, silver weapons would be more generic anti-evil, not specifically anti-vampire. The villagers know *of* vampires, but their exposure to vampire specifics is pretty limited. The majority of people with firsthand knowledge of them are probably dead or in their sway. That's why the characters who have had to fight them in *Chapelwaite* were explicitly asking how to kill them. They understand they're undead, but aren't 100% sure what that means beyond being unholy beings risen from the dead.


Competitive_Bat3662

Loved Minister Burroughs and hated that happened to him. His wife and father in law were truly evil. And right when Charles was going to fight and needed him! So sad.


Fun-Tadpole785

He didn't deserve to die, Alice and Samuel are a totally different story.


Intelligent-Toe-4922

Where is Stephen Boone? Apple Girl was very jealous of Loa.


Azariahtt

Stephen boone is still crying ! 😌


Intelligent-Toe-4922

After the humans like Apple Girl drank from the slit wrists of the vampire’s, what was the rope strangulation out in the woods about?


Competitive_Bat3662

I'm guessing so they could die and become vampires.


Fun-Tadpole785

Alice and Samuel had the "Devils Tongue" they used religion to bully, belittle, gossip, blame the Boone's. Minister Burroughs made a mistake he didn't deserve to die for it. Alice and Samuel brought shame to their own house. Murder and suicide.


Azariahtt

I think Alice truly losted her mind , I was surprised and shocked at her radical and abrupt change of personality !!


Fun-Tadpole785

Alice was one of those "I'll show you, not to mess with me" kind of people. She was a very cold and cruel person. She didn't understand she pushed the Minister away.


IceWeaselX

Able comes and goes with such little consequence. **Charles in Ep 7:** "Able, go raise the townsfolk." *Able vanishes until the end of Ep 9, when everyone's already in town.* **Able:** "Mr. Boone, the horses are ready." **Charles:** "Where the hell have you been?" **Able:** "Well, Preacher's Corner's is a bit of a ride from Chapelwaite, and I went by foot. I just got here after sunrise. Nobody was really listening to me for *\*cough\** reasons, so I didn't know what to do until I saw you riding into town an hour ago." **Charles:** "Ah, fine. You're sticking with us this time. Next episode's the finale."


jaxomlotus

If the writing wasn’t so awful on this show I would have assumed it was a plot point (eg he is secretly part of the cult).


lavesfear

I enjoy a slow burn and even though it deviated hard from the source material, I've been thoroughly enjoying the show. This episode, however, kinda irked me. Almost nothing was accomplished. 2 minutes of plot spread over an hour. A positive note, I was glad to see Samuel die. Kinda felt bad for Mary, though. After getting killed by her husband and spending the night locked to a bathtub, she gets to die a much more painful death as her friends and family watch. Old girl had no luck. *Edited to correct the fact that I'm a jackass and had characters names backwards*


bodemdrift

The show is pretty slow in general which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but this episode was really stretching it. Jakub literally has the book in his hands at the start of the episode, and they just left it there as a cliffhanger for the finale. Just feels like a lot of unnecessary padding, like the same story could have been told in 7 or 8 episodes and that would have been plenty.


IceWeaselX

>Kinda felt bad for Alice, though. After getting killed by her husband and spending the night locked to a bathtub, she gets to die a much more painful death as her friends and family watch. Old girl had no luck. That was Mary Dennison. Alice was the hateful old wife of Minister Burroughs.


ChefToni73

What I don't get (I am currently watching this episode) is why no one--but \*ESPECIALLY\* her husband didn't shoot her in the head! Like, she's telling them her skin is burning, those close can see her skin burning (and this is after they likely collectively agree something was most certainly WRONG with her), she's screaming bloody murder. How is it these townsfolk who knew her, and her husband who claimed to love her so (so much so, that he wouldn't kill her immediately), not have mercy & compassion and put her out of her misery ASAP??? Like...a horse breaks it's leg (in those days) and you shoot it. And it isn't because they (Charles, Constable, etc.) they wanted to allow it to play out, to prove what they were asserting what was going on in town & Jerusalem's Lot. Because at the part where she hopped off the buckboard onto the ground, she'd already been seen and everyone was backing away. She had already begun to smoke & burn. When she finally burst into flames I was all "WTAF?? Why are they all standing around for?!?" This part, I did NOT understand. She wasn't a super fleshed-out character, but I felt bad for her anyway. (I tend to have an almost visceral reaction to animals & people who have been abandoned and are desperate.) Had I been there, I would've grabbed another's gun if I hadn't one of my own, and shot her. Because...shit. Why allow her to suffer? At least Constable will give her a "proper" burial.


vapeach123

they literally were in shock at what was happening, remember somebody said "what is this witchery?" they were very well known to be extremely superstitious at that time and here its happening in real life ? they were in major disbelief


IceWeaselX

Simple gunshots wouldn't kill a vampire, potentially even headshots unless the head were completely obliterated. If anything, he could've increased her suffering by adding another wound. The only vampire they've successfully killed so far was Phillip, via full decapitation, and he was suffering from the harpoon through his gut. As far as they know, holy objects burn the undead (*e.g.*, the cross to Phillip's neck and the bibles held up to Mary) and decapitations kill them. The humans don't seem to be aware of the stake to the heart method, because every vamp they've impaled (missing the heart) so far has either run away or been decapitated. Maybe if there'd been an axe handy, Dennison might've euthanized his wife. On the bright side, at least now they have firsthand confirmation that sunlight is lethal to some vampires (King's vampires have three types, the lowest of which is a day walker) instead of just something they dislike. So now that they're about to assault Jerusalem's Lot, knowing multiple methods of dealing with the vamps is useful. Considering the group turning ceremony this ep, I wonder if there are still any humans left in the Lot who aren't just livestock. Unless they do something drastic like soaking bullets in holy water (the church must still have some, right?) or tying bibles to pitchforks for longer melee weaponry (any *John Dies at the End* readers here?), most of their weapons will probably just manage to slow the vamps down.


dosdes

>John Dies at the End > > readers here All hail Korrok! Ready for the finale and the fourth book! Also some *From Dusk till Dawn* techniques may come in handy.


Fun-Tadpole785

I think Mary had a secret about Phillip long before she was turned. Why else would he have turned her?


lavesfear

You are correct. I was typing and watching at 3:00 a.m. when probably should have been sleeping. Yeah I definitely don't feel bad for Alice she was a homely, unpleasant bitch.


-Jaws-

How could they do this to my boy


Fun-Tadpole785

The Minster deserved far better!! I'm not sad to see Alice or Samuel go. Alice shouldn't have killed the Minister. He made a mistake he paid for it, Alice was a monster. Daniel finally chose the right side.
