Lovecraft Country Season 1 Episode 5 Recap

In the previous episode of HBO’s Lovecraft Country, Ruby went home with William, and Montrose killed Yahima. In Lovecraft Country Season 1 Episode 5, William introduced Ruby to magic for a favor, and Tic worked to decipher Titus’ pages.


Ruby woke up by herself as the white woman guarding the tower in Ardham. She wandered the streets, and the police picked her up and returned her to William. He showed her the potion he’d given her after she painfully and gruesomely shed the white woman’s skin. He left it for her with a large wad of money. Ruby only needed the potion to enjoy the day. She used the potion to get an assistant manager job at the Carson’s department store, going by the name Hillary Davenport.

The other white women working at the department store wanted Tamara, the only black employee, to take them to the South Side. Ruby witnessed the manager, Mr. Hughes, sexually assault Tamara in the alley. With Christina’s encouragement, Ruby used the potion to seek revenge on Hughes. She let the white woman skin fall off her as she violated him with the heel of her shoe.

Inconsequential Favor

In exchange for the potions, William wanted Ruby to do a favor for Christina. Ruby had to attend a party at the Chicago Lodge as a server to plant a rock talisman in the police commissioner’s office there. Christina told Ruby that the commissioner’s seat was rightfully William’s. While planting the talisman, Ruby found a mutilated man in the closet. She hid in there with him when the commissioner and other Lodge members arrived.

After the incident with Mr. Hughes, William arrived home, and Ruby demanded to know what was in the basement. He shed his skin, revealing that he was Christina all along.
