‘American Gods’ Clip: Anansi Comes To America
DwayneD   |  

American Gods Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy /Anansi

On April 30th, when STARZ aired the American Gods premiere, they opened not with leading stars Shadow (Ricky Whittle) and Wednesday (Ian McShane). Rather, the pilot episode began with a period tale about Norsemen, adventuring abroad from Iceland, to the Western Hemisphere. It was about their utter failure at establishing themselves on these “New World” shores.

What I’m getting at is that American Gods is as much about fantastical super-powered beings as it is about the mechanism by which they arrived here: migration, voluntary or otherwise. Tuesday, STARZ released a clip of Sunday’s new episode, “The Secret of Spoons,” in which showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green use their platform to take a true-to-life look at the migration stories of America, warts and all.

Below we see the West African trickster god, Anansi (Orlando Jones), in both spider and human form, talking to enslaved Africans in the hold of a 17th century ship as they make the trans-Atlantic voyage to their new world: one bereft of freedom.
