Welcome to episode 4 of theStephen King’sThe MistTV series and in this special bonus ep of theBook Vs. MoviepodcastMargo D.andDeanaof theTwisted Philly podcastoffer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production.
Now we are at episode 4 titled “Pequod” which is the name of the whaling ship inHerman Melville’sMoby Dickand it was named for the Pequot tribe that was based in New England.
This episode has a bit of everything-- paranoia, mist beasts, foul language, dead kids and a little bit of “end of time/wrath of God”-type stuff. The action takes place in three places: A gas station, the mall and the church and people are at various levels of stressed out and frightened.
In essence for each location the following is happening:
The Gas Station:Kevin (Morgan Spector), Mia (Danica Curcic), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian(Russell Posner) can’t seem to get their car moving so they meet up at a gas station. There they find Clay (Teagle F. Bougere) who is armed and knows Kevin because Eve is his son;s teacher. Clay wants to stay and he gives his survivalist care to the gang. (He thinks he will reunite with his son at the station. Poor Clay…)
Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) confesses she is glad Kevin isn’t there because she blames him for Alex’s (Gus Birney) rape. Alex takes a young child to the bookstore to hang out and forget their troubles for a bit. The game show bros think it would be a fine idea to get a harpoon and bring the dead bodies from the parking lot. The mist shows up and causes one death and one bro getting kicked out for good. Also, the mist has no interest in Alex (!)
Father Romanov (Dan Butler) thinks it is the end of times and wants his new parishioners to join him in fighting the mist with faith and prayer. Natalie (Frances Conroy) thinks a spider she caught in a jar is God. Father Romanov thinks that is bunk and squashes it.
