Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 episode 7 last night, I’m wondering why the Elk Grove police department has not instated some type of curfew yet. After all, two local people are dead and a lot of weird things continue to happen, but I guess the best thing for everyone to do is to gather all in one place at the school dance. Seriously I don’t know what this town would do without Ashy Slashy. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Twist and Shout,” Brandy puts on her sequins and heads to the school dance with some chaperones, Pablo sees an unexpected guest in the rift, and Ruby tries to steal the show. My top 5 moments from Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 episode 7 are:
“I’m not sure this is the time to be playing Barbie dress up.”
And you know what…Ash has got a valid point. Not to say that I want to take away Brandy’s chance to shine on the dance floor, especially since she is wearing her mother’s favorite dress, but it seems like this is just bringing evil exactly what it wants. Brandy explains that this is her chance to lure Ms. Prevett out in the open and to finally see her for what she truly is. Ash accepts but is clearly hesitant about this plan, explaining that “from now on you’re rubber and we’re glue.” After all, “that’s what super cool dads do right?”
Ruby takes her plan to the next level.
Ruby’s new and improved demon Ash is born or hatched? Not sure which is really correct, but either way this identical version of Ash calls her “mother.” Ruby explains that his role is to make Brandy truly believe he is her father. This includes cutting off his own arm so that all of the details are just right. Talk about commitment. Ruby tells Brandy that her father, Ash is a demon and tries to get her to turn on him. If Brandy kills her own father, Ruby’s heir will become the true prophesied one and then she will be able to pretty much bring all hell to earth…literally.
“The real Kelly and I did kiss and it was freakin awesome!”
While Pablo is still in the cellar at the hardware store, he hears a voice calling his name through the rift. Pablo is shocked to see Kelly trapped inside and she tries to explain that she must be dead. Pablo is clearly heart-broken by this news but recognizes that Kelly’s soul is in immediate danger and knows that it is his responsibility to do something to help her. When Pablo arrives at the school dance, he is even more confused to see Kelly there alive and well. Only, he begins to see through this impossibility and tests her by claiming they never shared a kiss. When Kaya fails the test miserably, Pablo lets her know that the kiss they shared was “freakin awesome” and the two begin attacking each other. Pablo cannot kill the vessel and escapes in just the nick of time, but it’s clear these two are not done just yet.
“There’s a very handsome but demented version of me running around here.”
Ash is shocked when he sees the demon version of himself running around the school hallway, leaving a pile of messy dead bodies behind him. It is clear that Ash is being framed for this, but he is not about to let Ruby’s plan be a success. Ash says, “I’m going to save my daughter.” When he comes face to face with Brandy, she is beyond angry and waves the dagger around to show that she is not messing around. Ash tries to explain that “it wasn’t me…it was the other me,” which isn’t as convincing as it sounds. Ash fights off the demon version of him, explaining that “Ruby went to Kandarian Kinkos and this asshole popped out.” After destroying the demon, he looks to Brandy, hoping that she will believe him.
“You were right.”
Brandy has flashes about her recent memories with her father and she cannot end his life, ruining Ruby’s plan. After the demon Ash is eliminated, Brandy sees Ruby for what she truly is and says, “you were right.” Ruby’s anger comes screeching to the surface and she throws the Kandarian dagger at Ash, only Brandy jumps in front of it to save him. Brandy dies in Ash’s arms, breaking his heart completely and it seems like all hope is lost. Or is it? Brandy wakes up in the rift and sees the same monster that seemed to be after Kelly. After watching the preview from next week, it appears that Ash and Pablo are ready to go into the rift to save them. While it seems like the first step is to save their souls, is it possible that Brandy and Kelly can be brought back to life? I’m hoping so because it seems like our favorite characters are dropping like flies. Stay tuned to find out!
