This is the second time ash receives a metal hand. See more »


In the final shot, as the car and trailer drive off into the distance, you can clearly see a white triangle painted on the left hand side of on an intersecting road. In New Zealand (where the series is filmed) a white triangle signals to a driver that they must give way to all traffic. It's on the left hand side because kiwis drive on that side of the road.

Shoot first, think later. Or don't think at all. Yeah! Shoot first think never!

Which is kind of the problem with this episode. They didn't think much.

Filler. This is the feeling I got watching episode number 5 of the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead. Or let me correct myself. Episode 4 and 5 could have been condensed into one episode and it would have been an improvement.

If episode 4 was Ash in a post, episode 5 is kind of Kelly in a post. I like Eligos as an enemy; it is creepy, it is dangerous, it wants Ash to go through hell, it is menacing enough. But you just can't keep it tied to a post for almost the whole length of an episode, while all three men just look at it from a distance.

Oh, and there are not many jokes and Ash is kept to the sides.

Middle-of-the-road. Which we kind of are at, being this episode 5. More craziness, please.
