Throughout the first half of the episode, Leti and George have solely imprecise recollections of the previous night time, and no reminiscence of the monsters in any way. They fear that Tic has misplaced his thoughts, when he recounts to them what occurred. Tic is satisfied they’re below a spell, which he occurs to be proper about. And, to show to Tic that “not all us white people are out to get you,” Christina removes the spell. Then one after the other, Leti, Tic, and George are haunted by previous traumas and heartbreaks.
Leti bears her feelings to who she thinks is Tic, however when their kiss escalates, she has to battle off the hallucinated-Tic and his serpent penis. Tic, in his room, is ambushed by a Korean soldier, a girl, the exact same one who appeared because the pink martian princess from his dream within the final episode. They battle, till he subdues and finally kills her. George has a dance with the love of his life, Tic’s deceased mother Dora. She implies that Tic is his son, and George ends the dance, realizing shortly that she’s not actual. The lads Samuel gathered for dinner have been watching this all play out, which is unsurprising contemplating that the majority awarded and lauded tales about Black people are centered on their trauma.
After dinner, Tic n’em discover Montrose and attempt to escape within the silver Bentley. Once they try to cross the bridge, they collide with an invisible barrier. Samuel shoots Leti, who dies. Then he shoots Uncle George. Leti is revived on the contingent that Tic willingly participates within the ceremony, which he agrees to. As Tic is ready for the ceremony, he and Christina speak about carving out their very own future. She will be able to by no means be a Son Amongst Sons, like Tic is by nature of being born a male descendent of Titus Braithwhite. It turns into clearer that Christina desires extra out of this than making certain her father’s success.
There’s a compelling energy dynamic at play right here. Functionally, Christina is a wealthy, white lady who can actually wield magic. However for all intents and functions, Tic is above her on the hierarchy, regardless of being Black and a muggle.
The spoken-word poem “Whitey on the Moon” by Gil Scott-Heron scores the magical ceremony at episode’s conclusion. Samuel and the opposite Sons of Adam chant their spell, and the gates to Eden seem to open, as lovely flora emerge from the newly-formed portal. Tic is at first overwhelmed by the ability, and being consumed by it. Then he seizes management of it, and pushes it outward, turning all people else within the room to mud, in a satisfying show of “yo ass thought.” The blast destabilizes the very basis the lodge is constructed on, which causes your entire construction to break down. You like to see it.
