Book Vs. Movie Podcast
Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap
Episode 8 “The Law of Nature”
Plus: Our “Top 5 Stephen King Casting Choices”
We are finally seeing the end of Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, they choose their own “Top 5 Casting Choices in a Stephen King Production.”
The podcast clip is at the bottom of this post but here are the basics of this week’s show:
Kevin (Morgan Spector), Bryan/Jonah (Ozekie Morro) Mia (Danica Curcic) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are in the car and running out of gas. As luck would have it they are on Adrian’s block. He wants to check on his family and Mia & Bryan/Jonah want to look for gas.
Kevin wants to hide out in the car parked in the garage as this all seems like a bad idea to him.
Mia and Bryan/Joah have a hot encounter in the backseat of a car. (Kind of like Jack & Rose from Titanic except they are hiding out from The Mist and not an enraged Billy Zane.)
Adrian sees his awful father who casually tells his son that his mother is lying dead on the couch. Then he admits to his father that he was the one who raped Alex.
He shoots his father and then gets kin a tussle with Kevin who found the date rape drugs at the house. Adrian knocks him out and then heads to the car which now includes excommunicated from-the-mall Vic (Erik Knudsen) who somehow has avoided The Mist all of this time.
Adrian tells them Kevin is dead but IS HE????
Alex (Gus Birney) and Jay (Luke Cosgrove) are enjoying each other’s company which is causing whispers at the mall and making Alex’s mom Eve (Alyssa Sutherland) really unhappy. In fact, with a nod to Wendy putting Jack into the pantry in The Shining, Eve locks Jay up in a closet. (Because, that’s a sustainable plan!)
Meanwhile, Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) is having a very hard time keeping law & order at the Mall. Shelley (Alexandra Ordorlis) finds out about his hidden stash of food. He “brains” her and then chokes her to death!
Being a class act, he blames this on Alex.
Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and Connor the cop (Darren Pettie) have a deep discussion about his parenting abilities. He confesses that he believes his son is capable of raping Alex and blames his lack of being a good role model as the main issue.
Natalie thinks The Mist maybe just what the town needed to clear out all of the bad people and sets off to take everyone to the mall and check out what is happening there.
What will their reception be like at the mall? We most likely will find out in episode 9!
Personally I am just looking forward to what Deana picks for the weekly Stephen King Top 5.
Topics covered :
- How lucky they are to have Frances Conroy on this show!
- The way sexual assault and mental illness are handled
Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Casting Choices”
