Fridge / Hancock

Fridge Brilliance

  • Mary says that she and Hancock are siblings. He says "That's a lie - brothers and sisters don't kiss the way you kissed me last night." But moments before she said that they were known as gods in some cultures. Now take a look at the family tree of almost any major pantheon. It is entirely possible they were married and siblings.
  • During one scene, Hancock uses the word homo extremely liberally. It Crosses the Line Twice that he says it while in the modern day when homosexuality and same sex marriage are accepted. Then we figure out he's immortal and his last memory of his life was in the 1930s, a time where among most things, homophobia was accepted behavior. So he was really just saying what would be expected from a Fish Out of Temporal Water.
  • Mary eventually uses Hancock's "Call me _______ one more time" catchphrase. Makes sense; spend over 3,000 years with someone, and you're bound to pick up some of his habits.
  • The earliest incident Mary mentions to Hancock in the hospital is them having been attacked in Sumer. Combined with her describing her and Hancock as having been known as Gods and Angels to various cultures, it's worth pointing out that there was a Goddess in Sumer that was later known as Mary, Asherah. Asherah was the wife of the Sumerian god Anu, the equivalent to the Ugaritic god El, who became later known as Yahweh. Yes, THAT Yahweh. Guess who the only two deities of that pantheon still active in modern times are?

Fridge Logic

  • When Hancock has sex in the Unrated Cut, it ends up being Destructo-Nookie, and he almost kills his partner. How was Mary able to conceal her powers since she was married?
    • With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.
    • Maybe she fakes it.
  • When Ray is introduced, he apparently has some hot reputation that is immediately dispelled by his actions at the meeting. How did he get his rep in the first place?
