In this episode, Ash drinks 'Shemps' beer. Shemp (or Fake Shemp) is a term coined from the original Evil Dead referring to any secondary actor/actress that portrays a previously established character. This would be in the form of a limb (close up shots of grasping etc) or in heavy makeup. The term was created by Sam Raimi in reference to the Three Stooges who, at times, used a secondary actor to play Shemp; the actors role was called 'Fake Shemp'

Ted Raimi reprises his role as the Deadite Henrietta from the original movie, a role he initially undertook due to his brother, Sam, director of the first movie, having run out of actors

When Ruby says to Kelly in the woods outside the cabin, "It could have been worse", she is referring to the Evil Dead movies where the trees sexually assault Ash's sister, Cheryl..

When Ruby is reading the incarnation to send them back in time, the words Ruby(Lucy) is saying is actually the 'Funeral Song' that Lucy sang as "Xena" in "Xena, Warrior Princess".

Back in 1982 the team drives past a cinema. The marquee shows the double feature "Friday the 13th III" and "Poltergeist".

    Fato

    This series represents the evil things called "memory" (so that you won't move on), or "bad friends and habits" (the activities in the cabin will hunt Ash until his death), or "idle searches for selfish reasons" (like the professor, going after the book) that keep us busy in life away from appreciating "real beauties."

    And it does it well in this episode. You.Are.Stuck.In.Past!..

    In this episode, Ash and his "entourage" go back in time to change the reality as Ash wants Pablo to be "resurrected" in a way. But make no mistake, the Necronomicon may have given the idea to Ash in the first place while it has gone back to 1982 before Ash have a say in matters.

    Yes, it may seem lazy writing, maybe it is to some extent. But the reason we fell in love with the movies of "Ash" is the crazy stuff happened in "the cabin" in this episode and they have done a very good job to remind us of that fun we had.

    Yes, one might reply with an answer stating how the series could have yet explored new possibilities for the show in originality. We say to that; we have seen "Baal"s and such original turns in the show, but we do not like that taste very much.

    Therefore, this "back-in-time" execution is only a two-episode-kind of an option for the show. We mean, it was real good and there is a feeling (and a strong hope / request) that they are going to explore some new dimensions in the third season.

    Keep the good music, you gentlemen! (Thou: Ivan Raimi, Sam Raimi, Tom Spezialy)

    I give the episode a "9,1". Wow.

    "Naught is the life of the world save a pastime and a spot. Better far is the abode of the Hereafter for those who keep their duty (to Allah). Will ye then not understand?" says the Gracious Koran (the 32th Verse in the Chapter of "Cattle")

    Devastated over the death of his friend Pablo, Ash travels back in time with Ruby and Kelly (and Pablo's corpse) to try and change the future.

    Bringing the action back to 1982 and the cabin where it all began, this episode is pure fan service and as such doesn't do much other than deliver stuff that we already know and love about The Evil Dead.

    There's some familiar slapstick when Ash tries to suck out the evil from his infected leg only for it to get inside his stomach; Ash ventures into the cellar where he meets Henrietta; and Ruby and Kelly are attacked by demonic trees (although they avoid being raped, as happens to Cheryl in the original movie). At the end of the episode, Ash releases Henrietta only for him to realise moments later that she is a deadite.

    All told, it's reasonable fun for Evil Dead fans, but does nothing very new.

    If you haven't left anything to say, go to the basics. It will be just a repetition of what we have already enjoyed a hundred of times before, but at least we know that we have enjoyed it.

    That's what the last before the last episode of the second season of "Ash vs Evil Dead" offers: as with the first season, we go back to the cabin. With a twist. Because this time we also travel in time to the moment before Ash first read from the book. And then the show homages itself with Ash vs Ash, Ash and the cabin, trees that move a lot... It is fun, it has zero originality, it could have been left out.

    "Home Again" is a fun episode, but offers little, close to nothing. You could rewatch any of the movies, and you would have anything that happens in the episode already covered. Lazy writing.
