Meanwhile things are heating up in the mall. Remember the two guys from the video game store? The ones that rolled out the dead soldiers in shopping carts in the mist just to see what happened to them? Well they now want to be heroes and get them back. To do that they use a harpoon and when it gets stuck one of them goes out to wheel it in. Needless to say he isn’t coming back. When his friend flees he lets the monster in and it attacks Alex and a young girl who is in the bookstore (no King books in site as far as I could see), looking for something to read.
The monster in the mist attacks them and kills the young girl. Alex, for some reason, is spared. The monster itself is like a black mist that takes on a shape of a big creature that opens what looks like a big mouth that it places over its victims face and “eats” it. The guy who let the monster in is banished from the mall and cast out in the mist. I guess we’ll find out what happens to him later on.
Over at the church Natalie is going crazy looking for her God. Finally she finds him in the form of a spider. She raves on about it and finally Father Romanov takes matters in his own hands and kills the spider. But is it dead? Well it looks like it but it left a huge number of baby spiders in its place.
Things are heating up and finally we have seen more of the monster in the mist. I’m still not sure what it is or why it’s here but I’m sure we’ll get a better look in upcoming episodes. One thing is certain though. It’s not the same kind of monsters that’s in King’s story. Not so far at least but they might show up as well.
