  1. I believe that the show is implying that the old gods exist because humans love to project human attributes onto the natural world. Because we like to attribute these powers to divine beings, deities are brought into existence and gain power over said aspects. Greek and Norse both independently attributed the thunder and lightning of storms to a god striking an anvil, because we had no other way to explain such phenomenon. Since people still attribute Easter with the start of spring and new life, they gave those powers to Ostara and she was able to use that faith to take it away.

  2. I assumed Mad Sweeny controlled the rabbit that killed dead wife, cause rabbit’s feet are good luck charms and he has power over that? And it’s just a coincidence that rabbits are also Easter related. But I don’t really know.

  3. Can’t wait for you guys to heed Nancy’s words, get yourselves some queens, and come back for that promised season wrap.
