American Gods | Season 1 Episode 3 Clip: Ifrit / Jinn | STARZ

American Gods | Season 1 Episode 3 Clip: Ifrit / Jinn | STARZ

What is it?

A scene from the television show American Gods (Season 1) episode 3 (Head Full Of Snow).

What is it about?

This is how Fandom describes this scene:

Salim is a young Muslim man selling trinkets and souvenirs for his brother-in-law. He sits all day long at a company called Panglobal, waiting to meet with Mr. Blanding who never shows. He asks if he can make an appointment for tomorrow and the assistant tells him he has to phone for appointments. He walks out into the night rain and hails a cab, giving directions to his hotel. The taxi driver speaks Arabic and they discuss Oman, where Salim is from, chatting about the Lost City of Towers, which vanished thousands of years prior. The taxi driver apologizes as he has been driving for 30 hours straight and Salim tells him about how he just arrived in America a week ago and is selling worthless trinkets to people who won’t see him.

They get stuck in traffic and the taxi driver falls asleep. Salim reaches over the seat and gently rests his hand on his shoulder to wake him. The taxi driver awakens and Salim catches a glimpse of fiery eyes in the rear-view mirror. Salim recognizes him as an ifrit, a person of the fire that his grandmother once told him about. The Jinn tells him that he does not grant wishes and his life has been reduced to this terrible job as a taxi driver. Salim reaches over to once again touch his shoulder in comfort. The Jinn caresses his hand in return.

Running From A Giant Orc-Like Genie (Jinn)-Like Entity

I stayed up too late until I got too tired to finish my normal night routine, and I accidentally fell asleep on a living room couch so I never did get in bed but I still managed to save part of the end of two dreams even though I had more.

Dream 1

The end of this dream took place during the evening or night at a slightly fictional version of the of the parking lot and field area between the D Junior High School and the KRH Elementary School, and I was there with some other adults (maybe some former classmates of mine and some other people) and some young adults and some kids.

Generous Genies

Daily Prompt

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Generous Genies, and this is what it said:

Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes?

Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp.

You can give your three wishes to whomever you want.

Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?

And this is my response:

Leto Atreides II, because his other memory and prescience would allow him to better choose his three wishes and the best use of those three wishes.

Dream

I got awakened by a loud radio this morning that was so loud that I could not even focus on trying to remember my dreams, and so I forgot almost all of my dreams except for barely part of the end of my last dream; and so all that I can remember of this dream is that it was inspired by the video game Fallout 4.

At the end of the dream I was inside a multi-floor multi-purpose building that was probably a combination of a hospital, train station and/or subway and/or airport, and several other things that I can not remember; and I remember spending a lot of the dream comparing clothing from the video game Fallout 4 trying to pick clothing that could go under armor.

I was comparing stats and the look of clothing trying to find the best combination, while I was doing this different strange things happened that I can not remember, and I was also doing this while I walked around the building; and my parent’s were with me at some point.

At some point there were feral ghouls and maybe some other threats on certain floors of the building, we had to avoid and maybe fight some of them as we tried to escape the building, and I remember us meeting my female cousin ME; and she joined us as we tried to escape the building, and avoid the feral ghouls and any other threats.

There were other people in the building, not everyone knew about the threats or where they were, and so some people went to floors with feral ghouls and other threats and probably were killed; and I remember trying to figure out which floors were safe, and which were not safe while also thinking about things involving Fallout 4.

I remember successfully figuring out that a few floors were not safe but I was not sure if the first floor was safe or not, but I woke up as we were trying to figure this out.

The end,

-John Jr
