'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 6: [Spoiler] hurts Charlie Manx, fans are elated he finally 'realized the truth'
Spoiler for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 6 'The Hourglass'
In this episode, Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) makes his way to Christmasland with Wayne McQueen (Jason David) in the back seat. As Wayne's mother Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), his adoptive father Lou Carmody (Jonathan Langdon), his grandfather Chris McQueen (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) recovered in the hospital and were sent home, Wayne was deteriorating in the Wraith. His teeth start to fall off and he kills a butterfly, as he morphs into one of the children that live in Christmasland.
Vic, who was T-boned by Jonathan "The Hourglass" Beckett (Paul Schneider) ended up rupturing her spleen in the previous episode, and during that accident, her knife which is her bike named The Triumph was completely destroyed. The bike is the only way she can get through The Shorter Way to save her son from disappearing into the world of thought, into Manx's Inscape, Christmasland. Interestingly enough, when Manx was so close to getting away with the kidnapping, one of his "loyal friends," comes to gas him elating so many fans. "OMG NOW THE WRAITH IS STALLED VIC CAN FIND WAYNE!," tweeted an excited fan. For now, Wayne's family has been gifted some time to find the youngest member of the family.
Even though it was towards the end of the episode, it was probably the one that impacted the show a lot. With Maggie Leigh (Jahkara Smith) destroying The Hourglass Man, one threat was out of the way and now with Manx's plan on halt, Vic has a chance of finding her son - they just need to fix the completely obliterated bike first. You must be wondering who stopped Manx before he was about to make the last ride in the Wraith to reach Christmasland — ah, yes, Bing Partridge! (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson).
"Dang, I guess Bing just realized that he was NEVER gonna go to Christmas land! Only children are allowed. #NOS4A2," wrote one fan, with another replying, "I'm so glad he realized the truth and did that but like f**k him I just want Wayne safe and he helped unknowingly hahah."
This was a huge relief, and fans were so happy because Wayne is safe, for now. Safer than he would have been with Manx at least. Interestingly enough, Craig (Dalton Harrod), Wayne's real father who died in the Wraith in Season 1, appears to him telling his son that his mother is coming from him and that Manx is lying about Vic being selfish. In the moment that Bing gassed Manx as revenge for leaving him behind in the previous episode, Craig appears to Wayne and tells him to call his mother now - he knew that where they were parked, there would be signal. Vic was able to speak to Wayne and find out that the Wraith isn't moving, which is a great thing but now they just have to find out which junkyard Manx had hidden The Wraith and Wayne. "Did Bing finally realize he wasn't going to live in Christmasland? I didn't see him coming like that! #NOS4A2," wrote one surprised fan. Another wrote, "Bing is tired of being jerked around by Manx. He was promised Christmasland and keeps getting left behind. #NOS4A2."
Mind you, Bing is a huge villain and a serial killer that very loyal to Manx - he helped Manx come back to life, and he helped kidnap Wayne. So, this was a huge surprise. "Damn, never thought I'd cheer for Bing. #NOS4A2," tweeted one fan. Another wrote, "Sicko Bing turn the table on Charlie Manx. Damn! #NOS4A2." After all, all the man wants is to go to Christmasland.
