Mr. Wednesday isn’t going to start any war on Starz American Gods unless he has Gods willing to fight and take up arms for his side. That’s where Czernobog, played by the infamous Peter Stormare, comes in. He’s an old Slavic god of darkness and evil with a love for a little carnage.
In this clip, Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) makes a little wager with Czernobog as Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) reluctantly watches. If Shadow loses this game of checkers, Czernobog gets to kill him with his signature weapon, a hammer. If he wins…well, you’ll have to tune in Sunday to find out.
Check out the clip below:
