This would also account for why he is the way he is in ''Ash vs. Evil Dead'': living in a Streamline trailer, still working a dead-end clerk job at Valu-Mart, having meaningless sex with random women and only one co-worker he happens to sort of like. The events of what he went through in the films has pretty much made him want to keep nearly everyone at a distance out of fear of caring for people he could potentially lose (this also accounts for his change of heart when the Deadites attack him, Pablo and Kelly, even more so when Kelly asks him to help her). When he says he prefers to be a lone wolf and Pablo asks him if he ever gets lonely, though he verbally denies it, his eyes give a different answer. So, the reason for him acting like an arrogant A-hole is a self-defense mechanism to try to keep from losing more people he cares about.

[[WMG: The "Hail to the King" ending of ''Army of Darkness'' takes place ''before'' he left for the cabin.]]
It was pointed out that the woman who flirts with Ash about his story has a nametag that reads Linda, and that the actress was actually replacing Bridget Fonda who could not return for a cameo due to scheduling conflicts. With all this evidence, plus the fact that this woman does not seem to recall Ash, leads to the conclusion that when Ash returned to his own time, he returned ''before'' his own time! Or alternatively, a time where Ash never existed to begin with. Both are possible considering Ash "basically" said the words right this time. The words in question were meant to take Ash to his own time, but because Ash botched them, he got flung to one of the two possibilities mentioned above.

The look he gives Linda seems resigned, implying that he knows who she is but also what happens to her at the cabin. In fact, it's almost like he's thinking, "Yeah, right about now is when I'd be cutting your head off with a shovel..." Maybe it ''is'' supposed to happen right now? What if ''Scotty'' and his girlfriend still went to the cabin? After all, it was Scotty's idea in the first movie. Ash or no Ash, he would probably still go with Shelly, still find the recorder, still play it, and still unleash the Deadites! Once he and Shelly are dead (since Scotty decided to book it in the original film and got shanked), the book has not been burned and the Evil is still on the loose, and Ash can't catch a break.

* Even more so is possible with ''Ash vs. Evil Dead''. Ash mentions events from the first two films, but nothing about the events of the third film, as well as the Necronomicon still being intact and Ash having a wooden hand instead of his gauntlet (let alone a functional replacement). One could interpret this to be that the show takes place in an alternate timeline where Ash didn't destroy the Necronomicon during the first night (ED1), Annie read from the book (yet still died the same way as she did in ED2) and sent the Evil away instead of opening a time-warp to send it back in time, and Ash has been carrying the book to ensure that no one else goes through the same trauma as he's had.

Come on who else would simply put "Chop the motherfucker." of all things into the book. Where did he get the blood? From the corpses of the friends he killed.

[[WMG: Ash's behavior in ''Army of Darkness'' and the subsequent ''Ash vs. Evil Dead'' is a self-defense mechanism.]]
The reason why Ash seems so arrogant and rude to the "primitive screw heads" in AoD could be the end result of the last 48 hours he's gone through. When all three films are edited together into a singular continuity, you can see him go from a nice guy to an a-hole, possibly from a combination of having to practically kill his sister, friends and his girlfriend, get possessed (twice), the Evil tormenting him psychologically for two nights in a row, forcing him to chop off his hand and happen to lose a second group of people who came out as well would be enough to psychologically break anyone. Ash may have been a caring guy in the start of the whole thing, but when the events of AoD occur, the emotional turmoil he's gone through may have made him begin to act like an A-hole to the 12th Century people because he doesn't want to care about anyone and only to lose them again. This would account for his change of heart after Sheila was taken by the winged demon and lead him to help Arthur, because he's still a man who cares about people.

This would also account for why he is the way he is in ''Ash vs. Evil Dead'': living in a Streamline trailer, still working a dead-end clerk job at Valu-Mart, having meaningless sex with random women and only one co-worker he happens to sort of like.

In the first, Ash is a college student traveling with his friends to a creepy cabin in the woods, and at the end burns the Necronomicon/Demonicon, which is alive and well throughout the second movie. In the second, Ash only brings his girlfriend and perseveres through different -- but also similar -- events in the recap at the beginning. His shotgun also goes from a single-shot to a double-barrel and instead of an axe he acquires a full-out chainsaw. In the third, Ash undertakes a massive personality shift and the events he undergoes at the beginning are different than those at the end of the second movie. Also to be taken into account is the game Evil Dead: Regeneration, which is set in another alternate universe, where Ash is committed to an asylum instead of going back to the Middle Ages. All of this means either NOTHING is canon in the Evil Dead movies, or EVERYTHING is.

All of this means either NOTHING is canon in the Evil Dead movies, or EVERYTHING is.



Each movie and game after the first Evil Dead tells of a diluted version of his origin. While the first movie shows him with his friends, the second and third only show him and Linda during flashbacks. The first and second movies shows them as College graduates, the third shows them as former (Ash being current.) S-Mart employees. Granted one can argue that they have the jobs to pay off their student loans, but it wasn't mentioned until Army of Darkness. The famous laughing scene has been diluted in more ways than one: First of all it was heavily implied that the stress from his fighting the deadites has made him insane, and subject to hallucinations. While in the game Evil Dead: Regeneration has shown it was the deadites and ash had to shoot them all. Also in the game unlike the scene in the movie, he is seen with his chainsaw hand on, while in the movie; moments away from Knowby's daughter (whom helped him build the chainsaw.) from arriving, he only had his stump and the boomstick. In the game as well there have been no signs of the supporting characters from the second movie as either characters or deadites while there were plenty first movie deadites to kill. Lastly and this is the big one to prove my point. There was no narrator for Evil Dead, Knowby narrated Evil Dead 2. Who narrated Army of Darkness and so on? Ash Williams. Though it is hinted that the deadites and the killings are true, however despite being the hero, he is the one responsible for diluting his own story. Evil Dead 1 had hints of him going crazy with the mirror water. Evil Dead 2 had him being strangled by his reflection while inanimate objects laugh at him. Army of Darkness had an elaborate story involving time travel and a demon war. The games just piled on the crazy. There is no continuity error of the series. Ash has been so screwed up by the terror of the deadites that even he can't get his story straight. Now if a Bruce Campbell look-alike went up to you and said. "Hey man did I ever tell you the story about the magic book and the demons posessing my friends, and I killed them with a chainsaw. Then I traveled back to the past and King Arthur and I have been fighting demons?" Would you believe that story?

Their one night stand resulted in a line of Deadite infected badasses. The reason both Mia and Ash had to fight evil versions of themselves, genetics.
