This week on LITTLE DEMON, teen-Antichrist Chrissy spends the weekend in a Thunderdome-like alternate dimension with her father, Satan. At the same time, her mother, Laura, reluctantly goes on a girls’ night out with her spunky, unphasable neighbor, Darlene (Oh my Satan, I love this show!).
In the series’ third installment, we get a little bit of the episode-of-the-week treatment, but that’s not a bad thing. Some father/daughter time gives us a chance to get to know Chrissy and Satan better. The real-life father/daughter voice-acting duo Lucy & Danny DeVito brings tenderness to some really fun, bloody battle sequences. Keep an ear out for the vocal talents of Arnold Schwarzenegger and DRAG RACE’s Shangela.
Meanwhile, Laura and Chrissy’s well-meaning but very pushy neighbor Darlene (Lennon Parham), has dragged a reluctant Laura (Aubrey Plaza) to a singles bar in hopes of establishing more of a friendship. One thing leads to another, and before you know it, they find themselves in another dimension on the run from an overly-confident monster (William Jackson Harper). Seems like creating a bond through trauma is the theme of the episode.
I’ve gotta say, of the two storylines going on this week, I found myself more drawn to the Laura/Chrissy duo. Their bickering is amusing, and I want to know more about them. For a show that’s named after the teenage Antichrist lead, her mom currently has a more interesting draw. Maybe it’s because we don’t know much about her yet. Where did she meet the devil, why did she become a witch, and where did all the prison tats come from? I hope we’ll find out soon.
Be sure to stay tuned for a post-credits scene that, honestly, seems like it really should have been pre-credits.
LITTLE DEMON is available to stream on HULU/FXX.
