Episode 8 of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 airs Sunday, April 15, and we have an advanced preview of the episode titled, Rifting Apart.

We are nearing the end of Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 and the stakes are higher than ever. Ruby is still out there and Ash is down a few team members. He has lost a lot of loved ones in his life but losing Brandy might be the most devastating. Ash’s main goal this season was to protect his daughter and he failed to do so.

With Kelly also gone, Ash and Pablo will do whatever it takes to get the girls back. Although dangerous, the rift might be the key to getting them back. Unfortunately opening the rift alone won’t be enough so they must come up with a bigger plan to lead their loved ones back.

Here is the official synopsis for Sunday’s episode, “Rifting Apart”:

"Ash and Pablo realize the rift in the cellar is the key to saving humanity, and devise a plan to save the ones they love."

The dark place

As we saw with Kelly in last week’s episode, the dead are transported to another realm. This realm now houses the recent dead from the school dance, including Brandy. Anyone who is killed by evil is sent to this realm so that also means that Dalton is there. Brandy runs into him and he gives her an idea of what is going on. There are some shadowy soul-sucking creatures wreaking havoc so it’s best for Brandy to stick with Dalton. They run into a few more allies and do what they can to get out of this deadly place before they are gone forever.
