In Death's Kingdom we get deeper in to each character and the plot thickens. David Hooman, the guy who hit Peter Rickman while he was out running is getting a better look at the hospital in this episode. The confrontation between Dr. Stegman and Sally Druse hits full force, Dr. Hook gets to hear what Sally hears and Antubis (the anteater) gets to show his teeth once more.
There have been some speculations on whether or not Antubis and Oy from King's The Dark Tower series are one and the same. King has now stated that this isn't the case. There has also been some critic about Antubis that he looks like Alf or one of the Muppet's… Well, each of us can think what he/she wants but personally I never saw either Oy or Alf with fangs like Antubis's…maybe one of the Muppets has fangs… Seriously though, I don't have a problem with Antubis. I look forward to see what his role in this will be. You do get a hint in Death's Kingdom but nothing solid.
What also strikes me while watching Death's Kingdom is how nicely done this series is. I mentioned this in my review of the pilot as well but it gets more notable the more I see of it. It looks really fresh and the characters all feel so strange and odd, in a good way.
