American Gods Season 3 Episode 5 Recap
American Gods Season 3 Episode titled ‘Sister Rising’ saw Bilquis reconnecting with her powers as she gets guidance from Oshun. Oshun was a fellow ancient African goddesses – The Orishas. Getting her deep-lying powers, Bilquis bursts through the floor of the cell to drown the guards. That’s how Shadow and Technical Boy find her as she steps out gracefully from a cube of water. Seeing the dead guards floating behind her, it quite clear that Bilquis does not need to be saved. During her time in prison, she realizes she has been locked away for thousands of years. As Bilquis and Shadow later stroll down a sidewalk, she tells him how she finally sees her true self. As she grants Shadow with a powerful piece of wisdom, both of them part ways.
Meanwhile, Laura Moon, who had just gotten resurrected for the second time, goes on her own quest. She was going through an existential journey of discovery. And for that, she heads from New Orleans to Cairo, Illinois. There she gets back to the Ibis and Jacquel Funeral Parlor. Mr. Ibis had been stuck with heartbroken Salim, but Laura tells him to quit moping and do anything that makes him feel alive. As for her quest, she plans to hunt and kill Wednesday as revenge for ruining her life.
As for Wednesday, he has feigned a mental breakdown so that he could enter Demeter’s facility. While doing so, he strikes a deal with Demeter. She will allow Wednesday one day to convince her why she should accompany him if he can stay in the facility for seven days. During this, he convinces Shadow and Cordelia to pull off a “Number 37,” which was a code for a split-screen heist. And the goal of this heist was to free Demeter by getting her funds away from the clutches of Larry Hutchinson.
Cordelia was initially skeptical of this whole plan but is later convinced by Shadow. They were suggested by the hacker that they should copy the data from Hutchinson’s laptop. And this could work as a bargaining chip to force Hutchinson to listen to their demands. With the mission accomplished, Shadow returns to Lakeside to find his wife Laura waiting for him.
