Ash vs Evil Dead – S01E10
Jamie and Shawn wrap up the first season of Chainsaw Reaction by lamenting how long they have to wait until the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead airs. They also strong debate about how the season ended in,
The Dark One. Listen to what they have to say.
The Dark One Recap
Ash is still coming to terms with Ruby being the one who wrote the Necronomicon, Kelly is desperately trying to peel the cover of the book from Pablo’s face, and Heather (Samara Weaving) is trying to survive not-Amanda and the villainous intentions of the cabin.
Ash is distracted by Not-Amanda as she attacks him with his own chainsaw. Pablo is being taken over by the Evil in the book as he pleads with Kelly to help him. Ruby smacks Kelly across the room. In comedic and spectacular fashion, Ash dispatches not-Amanda. In the aftermath, Ash sees that Ruby and Pablo are gone, but the door to the cellar is open. Ash prepares his weapons (and hair dye/shoe polish) to brave the basement.
After Kelly persuades Ash to let her come to fight in the basement, the Evil hits the house like a freight train knocking Ash into the basement, and locking the door behind him. Ash falls and seems to go back into time to the night he read from the book. Ruby is waiting for him and offers him a deal/way out. She claims she wants to rule to Evil to maintain a balance between good and evil. Ash turns her down before returning to his fall down the basement steps.
In the basement, Ash sees a ghost/demon child who disappears, but Pablo’s screaming draws Ash’s attention to a backroom. Meanwhile, Kelly tries to open the cellar door, and the cabin starts screwing with her and Heather. Heather wants to get out of dodge, but Kelly is unwilling to give up. After fending off various attacks, Kelly is thrown from the cabin, and Heather is left inside.
Ash watches Pablo, not partially possessed by the book, give “birth” to a demon child (much like the one Ash saw earlier). Pablo begs for death and Ruby appears to be writing new pages for the book. The demon child craws up through the ceiling and the soft earth leading outside.
Kelly tries to get Heather to open the door, but the cabin attacks Heather, mutilating her body, and eventually sending a river of blood to knock Kelly back. The cabin shuts itself up. Kelly declares war on it.
Ash gives himself a pep talk before squaring off against Ruby, but as he is in the middle of his conversation with himself, he is confronted with a demon child. The demon child attacks Ash and it takes a bit before Ash can get his grooviness together to dispatch it.
Kelly sets the cabin on fire. A demon child is shown running through the woods. After being attacked by Kelly, the cabin opens itself back up and she enters to save Pablo and Ash.
Ash comes in and shoots Ruby to shit, but Pablo (now possessed) turns on Ash. Pablo tries to get Ash to kill him, but the chainsaw goes dead. Pablo forgot to remind Ash to fill it with gas. Ruby’s wounds begin to heal. Pablo gets the drop on Ash, though Kelly shows up in the nick of time to save him. Ruby grabs Ash and tries to take his face (as a new cover for the book). Ash confuses her for a moment and turns the tables on her, using the magic dagger against her. Pablo is killing Kelly. Ruby offers her deal again, tempting Ash so that he and his friends can go free.
Despite Kelly and Pablo’s argument, Ash takes the deal, and as they head on their way to Jacksonville, it is clear Ruby was not telling Ash the truth.
