This isn’t so much a recap of Strange Angel Season 2 Episode 6 “The Tower,” as it is a brief summary, with a focus on how the episode deals with Ernest’s death.

Oh, Ernest…the episode begins with the ruins of Ernest’s explosion. The scene is full of gray, and the congregants are all in shock. Of course they are taken back to the police precinct where they are interrogated about Ernest’s actions.

Detective Minsky: “What would you say was Mr. Donovan’s state of mind in night of question?”

Patty: “I mean the guy had a screw loose. Wasn’t anyone’s fault but his own.”

Detective Minsky: “In your opinion, why did Mr. Donovan commit suicide.”

Betty: “This wasn’t a suicide. Frater E.D. ascended. His body of light has become one with the universe.”

But according to Alfred, this was no ascension.

Alfred: “This was the demise of a broken man led down the wrong path.”

What’s Jack’s spin on things?

Jack: “Ernest wanted to die. I was the only one that tried to stop him. Let’s just say the Magus prioritizes the needs of some people over others. And unfortunately, Ernest slipped through the cracks.”

Ernest’s bloody mugshot is pinned to a cork board, along with pictures of what appear to be bones. The Coroner’s report indicates the bones found are from the goat, not Ernest. 

Detective: “We don’t have a body?

We learn Ernest used over 200 gallons of Class-A explosives, and that anything within 15 feet would be incinerated. Because there’s no body, there’s no case. (But then why were there bones from the goat? The goat was hanging in the garage near Ernest…hmmm…) 

The police continue sifting through evidence found at the lodge, and they discover Alfred’s recordings. Meanwhile, the members of the Agape wait in one of the rooms at the police station, with a police man watching over them.

Betty leads the group in a prayer.

Betty: “Let him greet the sun at dawn, giving the sign of his grade.” 

All: “And let him say in a loud voice: Hail unto Thee who art Ra in Thy rising, even unto Thee who art Ra in Thy strength.”

The entire group learns Alfred’s sessions are recorded when some of them are arrested for committing crimes. 

Alfred later burns all the photos he took of our beautiful Ernest.

Alfred: “For as much as thou hast made the Law of Freedom thine, thou hast lived in light and liberty and love.”

That pretty much concludes Ernest’s death, within the first seven minutes of the episode. Remember @snqa303 is currently on vacay visiting our beloved @frangipaniflower001, but she’ll gif the few glimpses we have of Ernest from this episode once she returns.

I’m not sure if Ernest will be mentioned going forward, but I’ll be watching! 

For those who want more details on the rest of the episode:

  • Jack’s security clearance gets revoked.
  • Virgil is still a scumbag, who now wears gloves. He helps lead community outrage over a “human sacrifice” at the lodge.
  • After Susan confronts Alfred about breaking her trust with the recordings, he turns himself into the police in exchange for releasing members of the Agape. He also basically admits he is just a man, a fraud.
  • Susan discovers she is pregnant (via a frog) with Alfred’s child. She visits him in jail to let him know.
  • Jack collaborates with the federal government to turn in Aleister Crowley in order to reinstate his security clearance, but then he discovers the man he’s been meeting all this time isn’t Aleister Crowley…or is he? Maybe Jack is just delusional…either that or Crowley is a master magician.
  • Jack deduces Susan is pregnant and puts the moves on Patty, cause Patty knows how to stroke his ego. THEY FINALLY FUCK, and we get to see Jack’s cute ass. Hey, it’s small consolation for no more Ernest.

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.

image

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.

IF THE LADIES OF FMRF WROTE FOR STRANGE ANGEL…

  • Episode 5, “The Hanged Man” would be named “The Hung Man”
  • And the entire storyline revolves around the agape learning through nude sunbathing that Ernest has a humongous dingdong
  • And that’s the entire episode
  • No rockets

Happy Hairstyle Appreciation Day!

        Over the years Rupert’s characters have blessed us with a variety of bitchin’ styles. So gents (and ladies!), the next time you’re at the barber, instead of a buzz cut or a high fade, please let the following styles influence you and ask for then by name…

“The Pretty Pucker”

“Talks to Random Cats on the Street” with bangs

“Dapper Drunkard”

“Buzzcut Blues”

“The Dirty Ernie”, in the south you can refer to it as “Satan’s Sidepart”

“Grease is the Word”

Love to @lizzyervs

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! St. Patrick’s Day, when Irish Americans parade and party, and non-Irish use the day as an excuse to get drunk because, well, why not? Celebrating my mostly Irish heritage made me think of Quinn (because everything makes me think of Quinn) which inevitably lead to a very important question… is Quinn Irish?

Quinn is an Irish surname. It’s believed to be from the Gaelic ‘Ó’Cuinn’ (descendants of Conn) meaning ‘wisdom’ or ‘chief’. God that fits him perfectly. Wisdom indeed!

There are other signs that point to Quinn being of Irish descent. While we don’t actually know if Quinn was his real last name, he clearly had some sort of Catholic upbringing or influence. Quinn does the “sign of the cross” going into the church for Sandy Bachman’s funeral.

image

And of course, we’re all aware of his love for whiskey, specifically, Irish whiskey. 

image

I like the idea of Quinn celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with some buddies in a bar. He’s drinking beers and having fun, cursing a ton, even more than he usually does and making his stories last much longer than they should — the true Irish way.

Whatever his heritage, Peter Quinn is the finest damn man on the planet. Please enjoy some pics of him wearing green — sláinte!

Announcement From FMRF

In the past couple of days, we have received many Asks regarding the recent exchange between Rupert and our dear friend of the blog @aimeemullinsfanblog on Twitter.

Initially, we were all very concerned about our friend. We know Angela to be a very sweet and dedicated fan of both Rupert and Aimee. We wanted to show our support for her as the lovely human being that she is and recognize her countless hours of dedication to posting Rupert and Aimee content. 

Were we disappointed at first by Rupert’s response to Angela’s tweet? Yes, because initially, it felt unnecessarily harsh, especially since Rupert rarely reacts to posts from fans. 

But we learned something – Rupert, being a puny human like the rest of us, is going to disappoint us at times. Whether it’s because he doesn’t interact as much with his fandom as we would like, (although he certainly doesn’t owe it to any of us) or because he interacted with a fan in a way we thought was ungracious. 

And maybe we’ll disappoint him. Maybe we already have. We should all realize how difficult it must be to live in the public eye. To have your life — the best and worst of it — out there for everyone to see; for everyone to judge. 

And here’s something else – a lot of nuance and context can be lost in emojis and tweets. Social media is fraught with miscommunications and incorrect assumptions. We think Angela got it right. She understood and accepted what Rupert was trying to convey to her. And this blog, as her friend, and as his devoted fans, should accept and respect that as well. 

So do we still love Rupert and his work? Fuck, yeah, and we won’t exacerbate things by posting and answering any Asks regarding this situation. This post serves as our response to this entire Twitter debacle that spiraled completely out of control and got unnecessarily nasty. 

Thank you for following the blog, and thank you for understanding.

‘Strange Angel’ Review | Hollywood Reporter:

findmyrupertfriend:

”… Parsons’ new neighbor Ernest (Rupert Friend), who moves in with a bleating goat, a creepy lack of personal boundaries and an assortment of slogans like “Do what thou wilt,” which prove enticing for Jack, no fan of establishment constraints.”

And here is some great praise for what Rupert adds to the show as Ernest Donovan:

There’s a slight drag that sets in when Jack and Susan are pondering money woes and delayed dreams — supporting performances by Hope Davis as Jack’s eccentric, formerly wealth mother and Michael Gaston as Susan’s stern stepfather help — but dissipates when Ernest shows up. Friend, who spent so long being questionably served as the eternally endangered Quinn on Homeland (OMG YES FINALLY SOMEONE CALLS IT LIKE IT IS), gives a performance of amusing weirdness and a creepy-crawly intensity that may be menace or just zealotry. Both Reynor and Heathcote, whose Susan has the feel of a guesswork-fabricated character, are more interesting with Friend than they are together. Friend gives Heathcote some taboo erotic sizzle and Reynor some crazed inspiration, keeping his co-stars’ performances from becoming too cold or too bland.”

🙌🏼🙌🏼 Loving that Rupert has an opportunity to continue playing diverse and intriguing characters. Rupert described Ernest quite well at ATX TV Festival: Ernest is a weirdo that sucks you in!

HOT DAMN! This review gives a great glimpse into what Rupert is bringing to Strange Angel! Love how descriptive it is 👍🏼👍🏼

“Friend gives Heathcote some taboo erotic sizzle…”

This sounds very promising!!!
