The Unseen

Shadow and Technical Boy team up to search for Bilquis, who finds herself captive and in the midst of a crisis of identity. Wednesday visits the local chapter of notorious biker gang Lords of Valhalla.

Tropes That Appear In This Episode:

  • Enemy Mine: Since both are looking for Bilquis, Shadow and Technical Boy begrudgingly decide that they would get farther together than apart.
  • Advertisement:
  • Mistaken for Aliens: When Shadow and Technical Boy get nowhere interrogating one of the guys that kidnapped Bilquis, Shadow has Technical Boy show off his godly powers and convinces him that they and Bilquis are a part of a Men In Black-style conspiracy way above his paygrade.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: Wednesday tricks Johan into blowing up the biker bar they were in so that Wednesday can fake a psychotic break, all to get himself committed into the same psychiatric clinic as Demeter.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: While Bilquis is being tortured in her imprisonment, she has visions of The Orisha, remembering that before she was the Babylonian Goddess of Love, she was one of them.
