WATCH-ALONG! Swamp Thing Episodes 9 & 10 FRIDAY, October 30th @5PM PST/8PM EST

It breathes. It dreams. And, at night, beneath a low-hanging fog, it shambles through the shadows with its red eyes and funereal soul. The swamp has a spirit, and it walks on two legs. A monster that was once a man…

Alec Holland was an idealistic scientist who was synthesizing a top-secret chemical in his hidden lab in the marshlands. But after a bomb in his office explodes, the young scientist is murdered. Or so it seems. Because rising in his place is the Swamp Thing, a creature made of vegetation that’s absorbed Alec Holland’s memories, personality—and grief.

The monstrous Swamp Thing can control every iota of plant life on this planet, from the fungus on stale bread to forests of towering oaks. Superhumanly strong and grotesque, he can grow himself a full array of titanic bodies from even the tiniest sprout of green. A living embodiment of the power and terror in our environment, the Swamp Thing protects both humanity and the environment—usually from each other.

Beyond The Watch-Along:

This week we’re pairing up with the inimitable DC History Club, who is doing their own deep dive into all things Swamp Thing, from their first appearance through Alan Moore’s transformation of Swamp Thing’s identity, all the way into the character’s modern telling by Tom King. Supplemented with polls, interviews, and analysis, this is one swim through the swamp you won’t want to miss!

Please read on below to prepare yourself for how this works:

The only DC History Club fact we have right now, this are two great episodes to finish this series. Nothing better on the eve of Halloween than watching Swamp Thing.

I am glad the show ended on a somewhat closed note. There was no massive cliffhanger or anything like that, not to mention there was a very sweet Abby and Alec moment to end the series on.

It appears I am going to be making a night of WALs tomorrow! This one and then the one in the lounge. I might be WALed out before tomorrow night is over. Who am I kidding? I love watching these WALs with all of you. Can’t wait to see these episodes tomorrow night.

If there is, I don’t want to know about it because this is All Hallow’s Eve perfection right here.
