Plot Summary

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident. Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, he is greeted by a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.

Trivia The character of Vulcan (played by Corbin Bernsen) was not in the source novel; he is a new addition to the TV adaptation. The character is based on the ancient Roman god of fire, the forge, and metalworking, but the inspiration for the new character did not come directly from ancient mythology. Instead, the idea came from a story that Neil Gaiman told showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green about traveling through Birmingham, Alabama, and seeing the 56-foot-tall cast-iron statue of Vulcan that overlooks the city on Red Mountain. In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Green said that Gaiman was told that during Birmingham's heyday as a steel town, one steel mill had had a policy that it was cheaper for them to pay restitutional damages to the families of workers killed on the job rather than to pay to ensure their safety. The "torch" in Vulcan's hand would light up one of three colors to communicate the safety of the Mills - a green torch indicated that no employees had been injured during the previous 24 hours, a white torch indicated minor injuries and a red torch signaled there had been a fatality in the previous 24 hours. Green said that Gaiman characterized that policy as "as modern a definition of sacrifice as there might be". See more »
Goofs Mr. Wednesday's Missouri license plate starts with the number 3. In Missouri, only trucks have license plates that start with a number. His 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham would start with a letter, or better yet would be eligible for Missouri historic vehicle plates. See more »
