Lovecraft Country | Episode 2 Recap: “Whitey’s on the Moon”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) returns to join Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) and LaTonya Starks (@lkstarks) on their journey through Lovecraft Country.

The house comes down in “Whitey’s on the Moon,” the second episode of the HBO series. Literally! The house! It’s gone! A lot happens in week two, and the trio of Josh, Kevin and LaTonya are having only slightly less trouble than the trio of Tic, Leti and George figuring out what’s going on.

About Lovecraft Country

HBO’s Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), who is on the hunt for his missing father. Joined by his childhood friend Letitia Lewis (Jurnee Smollett) and uncle George Freeman (Courtney B. Vance), they travel throughout the country in the time of Jim Crow. They struggle to survive and overcome not only the racist terrors of white America, but also terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback. Aunjanue Ellis, Wunmi Mosaku, Abbey Lee, Jamie Chung, Jada Harris, and Michael K. Williams also star.
