Spoilers for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 3 'The Night Road'
In today's episode, we saw Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) try to get Wayne McQueen (Jason David) in his Wraith. With Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) having run away in Episode 1 titled 'Bad Mother,' Wayne and his step-father Lou Carmody (Jonathan Langdon) were vulnerable to an attack from Bing Partridge (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) and Manx. Lou has been the perfect father to Wayne and an overtly understanding partner to Vic.
Vic, on the other hand, has lost herself in the need to murder Manx, and in the process has started to drink leading to dangerous situations with Wayne like the fire in Episode 1. This episode not only showed Lou's strength and bravery but also showcased him standing up for both Wayne and himself, and fans couldn't get enough.
After the Colorado police called Vic, who was at her mother's home, about the attack on Lou and Wayne, Vic arranged for them to be taken to FBI agent Tabitha Hutter (Ashley Romans). She decides that she has to go kill Manx and it was here that Lou told her it's not heroic for her to go off and leave her family behind. "Be here now," he tells her, to which Vic replies, "After I'm done with Manx."
"Lou dropping some hard truths that Vic still refuses to hear #[email protected] @NOS4A2 @joe_hill," wrote a frustrated fan. "Lou is the man mother's want for their child. Kind caring selfless compassionate and full of love. #NOS4A2," wrote one fan with another adding a bit more of Lou's dialogue with Vic, "'Wayne doesn't need you dead. He needs his mother with him.' So true, Lou. Vic has become so obsessed with killing Charlie Manx and redeeming her mistakes that she's lost all sense of herself. #NOS4A2."
To this many fans had one thing to say, as the tweets about this scene continued to increase. "Lou speaking the harsh truths Vic needs to hear. #NOS4A2" wrote one user while another added, "Lou is telling Vic calmly and nicely what we’re all screaming at our televisions #NOS4A2." Some were trying to get the point into Vic's head, tweeting, "Exactly he needs his mother Vic. Lou could have been killed. #NOS4A2". Another user wrote, "Thank God for Lou. Vic doesn't deserve him #NOS4A2"
Of course, as the episode went on, Manx and Vic did face-off, but Vic was unable to kill Manx. She decides to go see her man and her son at Tabitha's home where her friend Maggie Leigh (Jahkara Smith), also Tabitha's girlfriend, lives. Lou asks her if she's staying or visiting sarcastically, to which Vic replies she's staying. It seems as though if there were one person that could help Vic see reality, it would be Lou.
'NOS4A2' Season 2 episodes air on Sundays at 10 pm ET on AMC.
