The premiere episode of Ash vs Evil Dad series was well received by both fans and critics for the perfect introduction to the aging Lothario and stock boy Ash. The Halloween special episode also set a perfect premise for the upcoming gory fights between the show's protagonist and the Deadites.
The second episode promises to unravel the mysteries behind the grisly murder of the partner of the disgraced police officer Amanda Fisher, who believes the aging Lothario to be the prime suspect. On the other hand, the chainsaw-handed monster hunter will continue his fight against the deadly plague that is threatening the survival of humanity on earth.
While helping him in the fight, his loyal sidekick Pablo will kill some of the monsters while Kelly will unravel some major mysteries regarding her family. The duo will accompany Ash on his blood-filled adventure as he embarks on a journey to decode the Necronomicon (the book of the dead) in order to end the horror plague.
The official synopsis of episode 2 titled Bait reads: Special Agent Fisher is tracking Ash. Pablo gets his first taste of blood in a manic showdown, and a revelation changes Kelly's life forever.
Click here to watch the second episode live on Starz's official website. The series begins 30 years after the 1992 blockbuster Army Of Darkness, the third movie in the Evil Dead series. However, show runners are not focusing on the past of the chainsaw-wielding monster hunter.
"We don't talk a lot about past things," Craig DiGregorio told IGN about the plot of the popular Starz series. "Like we do say, yes, he did release things from the book way back when. He has been sort of hiding away from them for a long time. He re-notified them as to where he is, re-summoned them, and now we're back. We talk a little about backstory, but we don't dwell on the backstory. So I think all of the actions that have happened to Ash in the past are still there in his head, but we don't talk a lot about them."
