Strange Angel – “The Hanged Man” (This is a recap of the 5th episode of Season 2 of Strange Angel. There are spoilers so proceed with caution!)
Ernest sits on a floor as lightning and thunder rip through a dark night outside. He’s dressed in a white vest and shorts, surrounded by candles in a room. It almost looks like a cabin. He’s reading a large, heavy looking book that rests in his lap.
Lightning strikes again as Virgil walks into the room, threatening Ernest. His hand is bloody where Ernest drove the nail into it and a red stream drips onto Ernest’s book, across the page titled “Making The Crossing.” Ernest tries to remain calm and tells Virgil he is not afraid, but you can still see some fear in his eyes.
Ernest’s thoughts disappear, and he is brought back to reality. In reality, he is dressed the same and sits with the same book. He looks down at the bloody scar on his chest from a fresh symbol carving. He gently touches it and looks up pensively, giving us a fantastic close up of his beautiful face. The shadows lightly cover half of his face, and you can see a hint of a cleft chin and that well-discussed procheilon.
