Watch an all-new episode of HBO’s Lovecraft Country tonight at 9 PM ET.
Is it me or do Leti and Atticus love haunted houses? The duo may have escaped the mythical castle at Ardham, but the magic turned to horror in Leti’s new haunted mansion, the Winthrop House. Expect to get answers in the latest episode of HBO’s Lovecraft Country, which airs tonight.
The third episode was the “Jurnee Smollett Showcase” as Leti took center stage thanks to her purchase of the Winthrop House. Leti purchased the mansion on the North Side of Chicago, which we learn is very white and full of racists. Despite the unfortunate circumstances, Leti decides to turn the mansion into a boarding house and even invites her sister to stay in a room.
Fighting racism is one thing, but fighting the deadly spirits is another beast in itself. Leti learns that a handful of innocent black people were used in deathly experiments in the basement and their souls never went to the afterlife.
These souls want revenge and they even kill three white male intruders towards the end of the episode. However, with the help of Tic and Martine, Leti is able to team up with the tormented souls to defeat their captor, Hiram.
