The first season of American Gods ends with an image that compacts the many themes of the series into one odd moment.

Without giving you any spoilers, I can say that this scene captures American Gods' perspective on religious faith in America.

But this series, based on Neil Gaiman's 2001 novel, has managed to create a spellbinding story about how true belief rests on healthy skepticism.

Though we've seen pieces of many gods' biographies, we finally see a god's life cycle from birth to death to rebirth.
