Episode Summary

EDIT
As the spiritual powers of Ben Hawkins evolve, Management exposes him to the cataclysmic disasters that await the world if he doesn't identify and conquer his nemesis, Brother Justin. In order to do this, Ben must find his father, the elusive Henry Scudder, who holds a crucial link not only for Ben, but for Justin as well. Continuing to function as Ben's cover from the law, the Carnivàle troupe follows his lead further west. Meanwhile Justin has employed a new "Apostle" to aid in his search for Scudder: a prison inmate named Varlyn Stroud. Justin and sister Iris spread the word drawing throngs of weak and impoverished masses into their spiritual web. With time running out, Ben and Justin are thrust into high gear - and onto a collision course that will ultimately determine the fate of mankind.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The sign in front of the church where Norman collapses says United Methodist Church, etc. is 34 years too early. The United Methodist Church did not become a church until 1968. Before that it was 2 entities. The United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church.

      • Apollonia's body was burnt to the bone, yet the tarot deck only got singed, except for its cover. And even though the cover got burnt, the string holding it together has not gotten burnt.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Brother Justin: Ye offspring of serpents. Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

      • Wilfred: But you bleed like a man.
        Justin: What?
        Wilfred: He's still alive.
        Justin: Who? Who is still alive? Tell me.
        Wilfred: By the hand of the Prince, the Prophet dies. Upon his death, the Prince shall rise.
        Justin: Stop babbling and tell me who!
        Wilfred: The Gospel of Matthias. Chapter 3, verses 26 through 28. You have to kill him. You have to kill him with your own hands.
        Justin: Who?
        Wilfred: Scudder. Henry Scudder.
        Justin: And then what?
        Wilfred: You'll be the Prophet. The Usher.

      • Samson: Someone picks a number for this, it's gonna be me.
        Ben: That ain't right.
        Samson: No, it ain't. It just is. And in Management's book, that's the only thing that counts. Things like right and wrong... (uses his cane to push Lodz's body into a ditch) it ain't even decent show bets.

      • (after Management shows Ben a vision of an atomic bomb test)
        Ben
        : That thing. What was it?
        Management: A weapon. A false sun wrought by the hands of men. It is the last link in a chain of events unfolding even as we speak. You must break that chain.
        Ben: How the hell am I supposed to do that?
        Management: By destroying the preacher you've seen in your dreams. Find Scudder and bring him to me.
        Ben: What does he have to do with this?
        Management: He was to me what the preacher is to you. My enemy. You saw my failure in the war.
        Ben: You're the Russian?
        Management: Yes. My name is Lucius Belyakov. Scudder knows the true name of the preacher as I knew yours, Ben Hawkins. You must bring him to me.
        Ben: I've already bloodied my hands once for you and I ain't gonna do it again.
        Management: You can't run from this.
        Ben: I ain't gonna do it.
        Management: Millions will die!
        Ben: I can't stop that! I'm just one man!
        Management: Then run, coward. Run as your father did before you.
        Ben: I'm not him, you son of a bitch!
        Management: If you try to escape your destiny, the world will not escape its terrible fate!

      • Samson: On the heels of the skirmish man foolishly called "the war to end all wars," the dark one sought to elude his destiny. Live as a mortal. So he fled across the ocean to an empire called America. But by his mere presence, a cancer corrupted the spirit of the land. People were rendered mute by fools who spoke many words but said nothing, for whom oppression and cowardice were virtues and freedom an obscenity. And into this dark heartland the prophet stalked his enemy. Till, diminished by his wounds, he turned to the next in the ancient line of light. And so it was that the fate of mankind came to rest on the trembling shoulders of the most reluctant of saviors.
