Gorecast #66 - A MEMORIAL FOR ASHLEY JOANNE WILLIAMS
Friends, demons, countrymen. Lend me your ears! A dear and cherished friend was lost to all of us this week. So I and my co-host have decided to hold a memoriam for the one the only Ashley J Williams tonight www.facebook.com/TheGoreCast tonight 23:00gmt/20:00est
The final episode of Ash vs The Evil Dead aired last Sunday and with that brought our final look at Ash Willams as Bruce Campbell announced last week that he will no longer play this iconic role.
Campbell said in a statement at the time. "Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime. It was an honor to reunite with Evil Dead partners Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi to give our tireless fans another taste of the outrageous horror/comedy they demanded."
The protagonist, Ashley Joanna "Ash" Williams (Bruce Campbell) is the only character to appear in every installment of the original trilogy, with the exception of his main love interest Linda, who appears in Army of Darkness during only the prologue. The original trilogy includes The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead II (1987), and Army of Darkness(1992), all written and directed by Raimi, produced by Robert G. Tapert, and starring Campbell. The franchise has since expanded into other formats, including video games, comic books, a musical, and a television series which we will be touching on a little bit in the show tonight as well.
Mostly as part of memoriam we will be reviewing the final season of Ash Vs The Evil also having a discussion about the final scene of season 3 THERE WILL BE SPOILERS.
The third season finds Ash's status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby's fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn't done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!
