Apparently Zeb dreams of awful sexist beer adverts when thinking of finding Frigg. He takes his master plan to Axl and even he realises that it’s dubious and nothing about the Frigg prophecy guarantees Frigg’s bra size. Unfortunately, as he talks Axl decides running auditions for a fictitious advert for a fictitious beer “Odin’s Ale”, requiring actors fit the model of Frigg is somehow a good idea.
In one way this is very true to Norse Mythology. The Aesir aren’t the brightest bunch around.
To Anders’s office where Dawn is happy they’ve got rid of Colin (the wanker), but that they still need business – and she pokes for more information about what actually happened in the alley. Anders ducks the question and is rescued by Axl and Zeb arriving with their not-so-masterful idea about finding Frigg and wanting to talk in private (poor Dawn). Anders hears their plans and tells them exactly how utterly awful they are – but he will help them find Ingrid (who has gone missing) because her genealogy isn’t the worst idea – but no way is he setting up an advert that the real Frigg will run screaming from.
Is it shallow of me to want to give a small award to Dean O’Gorman’s tailor? Or a not-so-small award?
At Mike’s, Michele is glowing and happy despite putting in long hours at work – apparently on a medical research project (she is a doctor). Mike doesn’t believe her – he and Olaf go making money with his Ullr power and discuss the inscrutable secretive ways of conniving women when men don’t bother to actually ASK them if something’s going on. (Y’know, if he really wants to know, he could just have Olaf says “I bet you can’t guess what Michele is doing all day”). Mike decides that since she’s content, not guilty, it’s probably secret goddess stuff and, therefore, something he should stay out of (especially when Olaf points out Mike isn’t exactly telling her about the money he’s making using his Ullr powers)
Anders tries to get Stacey to tell him where Ingrid has got to. From there he goes to a swanky looking hotel, the same hotel Michele has been visiting and sees there’s an event called “The goddess healer speaks”. And Ingrid is the receptionist for the event (and collecting fees). He breezes past Ingrid to see Michele giving an empowering, but rather generic new agey presentation to a room full of women.
Anders confronts her afterwards about how it’s all generic new agey stuff and she’s really healing everyone with Yggdrasil – and to make lots of money. And he wants a part of it – she ignores him, so he asks what Mike thinks of the whole thing, to which she brings him on board.
Zeb and Axl continue their awful advert idea on social media, get a large number of women auditioning and borrow a set at a local theatre to “interview” potential Friggs.
