Ep6: Goddesses, Axl, Come in all Forms
Road trip!When an old woman, Selma Hansen, getting
killed by a meteorite sparks an Oracular reaction in Olaf, the boys mount up
and Axl, Anders and Olaf are off to Whangamaungamoa, in heartland New Zealand.But the Goddesses have had a similar reaction
to the event and Michele and Ingrid are also on the road, heading for the same
Thus it is that
there is the first face-to-face summit meeting of Gods and Goddesses, outside
the church where Selma’s
funeral is being held.May the best
deity win, is the general consensus, as the two sides set about following any
signs of the Frigg being here.Instead
who they find is Thor, God of War, in the form of Derrick, a goat farmer.
This is a problem
for both sides, because Thor is clearly barking mad – and also very scary, with
his hammer in his hand.But Thor is
thrilled to find Odin/Axl is in his house and announces that their search is

Dawn, but when he gets the impression she not only sees him as a ‘friend’ but,
thanks to some lies from Anders, as a ‘gay friend’, Ty hits the roof – and in
doing so Dawn learns that not only is Ty not gay, but he regards her as someone
he could fall for in a big way.After
some initial confusion, it seems that she feels the same way about him – and
they kiss, there in Anders’ apartment.
The next morning

and of Ty watching her sleep, lest she feels the cold he emanates in his
passion.When Dawn assures him that she
doesn’t feel the cold, Ty is the happiest man on the planet.
This is more
than can be said for Anders’ tropical fish, as they have succumbed to Ty’s

been replaced by a box of fish fingers – a message from Ty about telling lies.
