Mimi Rogers Shines (Despite All The Blood) In ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead’

Most of the deadites encountered so far in Ash vs Evil Dead have been secondary and tertiary characters. Suzy’s arrival, however, presents the series with its first uncertain case. Plus, she’s the mother of one of the protagonists, a potentially heartstrings-pulling narrative device not unlike the evil’s first victims in The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II, who were Ash’s friends and girlfriend. It’s one thing to kill the deadite version of your awful boss, but a possessed loved one? All the feels.

Rogers excels as Suzy Maxwell. The moral conundrum posed by her character’s murky position in the story is enough to push the show into uncharted territory, but Rogers’ performance seals the deal. Is she a deadite? Or is Ash being too paranoid? These questions drive “Bait” until the very end.
