Spoilers for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 3 'The Night Road'
While this episode was quite scary for Lou Carmody (Jonathan Langdon) and Wayne McQueen (Jason David), there was some danger and oddities brewing in Christmasland as well. Millie Manx (Mattea Conforti) is quite upset with her father Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) who seems to always leave her alone in his Inscape as he finds children to bring back home in his Wraith. This season is delving more into the Millie storyline and from what we see so far, it doesn't seem like Millie is aware of how her father's world works. In this episode, she also finds the very much alive corpse of her mother, whom she had killed by biting her face off. What was Cassie Manx (Celeste Arias) doing on Candy Mountain?
"Millie is really going to get on Charlie's naughty list. She doesn't understand he isn't her father he's a selfish psychopath. He only takes the children so he can live," wrote a fan after Millie blatantly disobeyed Charlie to end her curiosity about a little light she saw on top of Candy Mountain. "Is that Millie's mother in that old house on Candy Mountain? #NOS4A2," asked a fan as the house atop Candy Mountain matched the one in Episode 2 'Good Father' where we saw the birth of the Wraith and Christmasland and the death of Cassie. "Looks like Millie is starting to rebel against her father and defying his wishes. Charlie Manx better watch his back #NOS4A2," wrote another fan.
The start of the episode saw Millie see a light far away and she decides to go to it; She sees a home and takes out her sword but the home seems empty. In the empty and eerie home, Millie makes her way to the bedroom and there she is visited by her dead mother. Her mother makes her look into the mirror where she looks like her old self - without the vampire's teeth, the Wraith ride had given her. Millie runs out in fear. Toward the end of the episode, we see her go back into the home and leave a cut off Reindeer's head at the door. She then bangs on the door, leaves the head in front of it and runs. The door of the house opens and reveals her mother who says 'Millie.'
"Millie is becoming quite the rebel. Cutting off a reindeer’s head is not cool!! Manx will know. #NOS4A2," wrote another fan with another viewer replying, "The Millie story is super intriguing. #NOS4A2." Season 2 did promise us more on how Christmasland, Charlie's Inscape works and it only makes sense to also extrapolate on Millie's narrative considering she lives there."Millie is about to rock the house #NOS4A2," wrote another fan.
"What happens if Millie is on the naughty list? Sounds scary for her and Christmasland. #NOS4A2," asked another fan because well, we simply just don't know. Millie is very loyal to her father, but it seems that her loneliness has got to her and she's not ready to feed her curiosity of the world she lives in. "We all know who can run Christmasland? Millie!! #NOS4A2," wrote another fan.
'NOS4A2' Season 2 episodes air Sundays at 10 pm ET on AMC.
