'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 6: Fans cheer for Maggie as the Hourglass finally 'meets his match'
Spoilers for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 6 'The Hourglass'
The last episode of this otherworldly thriller saw the official kidnapping of Wayne McQueen (Jason David) by the Strong Creative, Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) as Lou Carmody (Jonathan Langdon), Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) and Chris McQueen (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) neared death at the hospital. All these events that took place in Episode 5 'Bruce Wayne McQueen', set the course for the upcoming episode that many were anticipating, and it definitely delivered.
The Hourglass, another Strong Creative has a power that is more dangerous than Maggie Leigh's (Jahkara Smith) tiles and Vic's Inscape, The Shorter Way. In this episode, we saw how after he almost killed three people in the last episode, he now tried to murder Vic again, but this time, Vic wasn't alone. Fans say that Jonathan "The Hourglass" Beckett, has met his match because Ms Leigh plays no games.
Maggie finds The Hourglass man, seducing him so she can try to figure out how his power works. Maggie has always been loyal to Vic and fans were so happy that even though Maggie suffers Tonic-Clonic Seizures after she uses her tiles, she decided to find the truth anyway. "Man get you a friend like Maggie Leigh b***h is the best friend there is," tweeted one fan. There weren't many who doubted that Maggie could get answers, and they were right. "Hourglass ain't going nowhere he boutaa die you've met your match you sob Maggie isn't here to play games," tweeted another fan.
After getting the Hourglass Man to show her his powers, she had to continue to pretend she was interested in him so he doesn't kill her. Turns out the man wanted to find out if he could achieve immortality like Manx - Maggie's tiles can give him that answer if Maggie simply asks them. The Hourglass Man teaches Maggie to control her seizures, and then she asks her tiles his question, they reply "No".
Getting greedy, he catches Maggie trying to leave and asked her to re-ask the tiles the same question. When Maggie refuses, he threatens to "make her do it", using his Hourglass — his power is that he can make people do whatever he asks, for the duration the hourglass has emptied its sand on one side. But, it affects his memory — another part of the puzzle Maggie figured out. "Maggie just owned his ass. I'm screaming. #NOS4A2," tweeted a fan.
"The way my jaw dropped. Maggie channeled Sailor J and said “I think tf not you trick ass hoe. We stan. #NOS4A2," wrote a fan. Another tweeted, "NOS4A2 the #HourGlassMan didn't stand a chance against Maggie #NOS4A2"
When Maggie tries to leave with his tiny hourglass, The Hourglass Man tries to kill her but like Maggie said "My tiles never lie," and she was right. Stabbing the Strong Creative with a fork and crushing his hourglass, Maggie says, "I tried to warn you, John, my tiles are never wrong. This is for Vic." By doing this Maggie took away a huge threat. "#NOS4A2 Thank god she was able to overcome the Hourglass Man. That’s one less threat for Vic and Maggie to deal with," tweeted one fan. Another tweeted, "Maggie kicking ass and taking names in this week's #NOS4A2. "That's for Vic." #RenewNOS4A2."
