TV REVIEW: The Almighty Johnsons Season 2 Episode 6 – Folkmoot

After Colin tries to take revenge by burning Ty alive, Axl – as head of the gods – calls for a Folkmoot to decide his punishment. Michele approaches Mike with an idea, which has an unexpected outcome for Zeb, and Ty finally tells Dawn why he could not be responsible for Eva’s death.

This week, The Almighty Johnsons took us right back into the Norse mythology with the Folkmoot – a council that confers when a god has slighted another. This is brought about after Colin breaks into Ty’s home and uses his Loki powers to set a fire around his bed. After this, all the gods discuss what is to be done and, even though Agnetha tries her best to take him on, Folkmoot is called.

Loki is a vengeful god, and Colin still blames the death of Eva on Ty. It was only a matter of time before he returned to exact his revenge, but happily for Ty, this does not work. After the attack, Ty goes to live at Anders’s house and discovers that Dawn did not take the holiday she planned, and is still looking after the house for the absent god. This leads to some uncomfortable conversations between Ty and Dawn, and he finally confesses that he could not have killed Eva since he spent the whole night with Dawn after she was attacked. Aww. Ty and Dawn have their issues, but it is clear that the two still love one another. Here’s hoping they can work it out.

Meanwhile, Michele sees her chance with Mike and offers herself and her powers to him. Mike demands an example of her being able to attract people to one another, which leads to Stacy and Zeb having some very indiscriminate sex and some uncomfortable times for Axl and Gaia. This also leads to Mike and Michele forming a sexual and godly alliance, which not many of their fellow gods approve of.

The Folkmoot takes place as planned, but Ty throws the sentencing, by revealing Agnetha’s part in Eva’s death to Colin. Axl sentences her to a lifetime as a tree then takes on Colin in a sword battle as he rages against the decision. It seems that all is settled, but the Johnsons did not factor in Colin’s love for fire…

This episode of The Almighty Johnsons seems to have set the series back on track. Not only is Axl taking responsibility as head god, but Agnetha is finally called to answer for her crimes. Whether this means that Colin will calm down is another issue. In all, this was a complex but interesting episode of The Almighty Johnsons that reminds the audience of the quest the gods have undertaken, and the importance of Norse mythology in the show. Bravo!
