An astounding number of fans kicked off New York Comic Con by filling up Manhattan Hall’s Hammerstein Ballroom to see Bruce Campbell and the rest of the cast of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. And when I say “astounding,” I mean the line wrapped halfway around the block. If this turned out to be the most popular panel of the day, I would not be surprised.Once everyone was inside (somehow), host Doug Benson wasted no time bringing out the cast. Familiar faces Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo, were joined onstage by newcomers, Lee Majors and Ted Raimi.Those of you who caught the first episode of this season know that Lee Majors plays Ash’s dad. For those of you who didn’t… Let’s just say that now we know where Ash gets it from. Campbell spoke about how perfect Majors is for the role, saying Lee was known to be a ladies’ man back in the day, so of course, that’s the kind of person to have raised Ash.Lee Majors and Bruce Campbell in Ash vs. Evil Dead.

When he heard they were interested in having him join the cast, he said he rushed through the first season and, he says, loved it.Fans of the movies might recognize Ted Raimi, even if his character is new. Raimi bragged that this is actually his sixth role in the Evil Dead franchise. Not counting the “Fake Shemp” in the first movie, he played Henrietta in Evil Dead II, a warrior, a villager and an S-Mart clerk in Army of Darkness, and Sam in the Evil Dead: Regeneration video game. Chet is a slightly larger role for Raimi. According to Campbell, Chet is the loser who never left his small town, and we’ll find out why that is as the season goes on. It also sounds like there’s a plan to keep the tradition going. Whether Chet survives this season or not, there “may or may not” be more Ted Raimi characters to come.Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi in Ash Vs.

While they don’t trust each other now, Lawless said Lucy will eventually weasel her way into Pablo and Kelly’s hearts, and vice versa. Lawless herself feels as though she is already officially part of the group, having been finally drenched in demon vomit like everyone else. It’s a rite of passage on that show, apparently.We’ll also get to see much more of Pablo this season. Literally. Ray Santiago teased that Pablo, while still trying to be the best sidekick he can, is in a very dark place after giving birth to those demons in the season two premier. Somehow, that means he will spend a significant amount of time this season running around naked. Do with that information what you will.Bruce Campbell after “the scene” in the second episode of season two of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. (Photo: Screenshot via Youtube/Starz)To conclude the panel, we saw an early screening of episode two. I won’t give away too much here, but the gist of it is Ash and Co. have brought Lucy to Ash’s old bedroom to interrogate her. Lucy reveals that she hid the book inside a corpse at the hospital morgue (dead flesh masks the smell of the book). Ash and Kelly go to retrieve it while Pablo stays behind to interrogate Lucy about what happened to him.Before the episode began, Bruce Campbell warned us there was a truly disgusting scene that we almost wouldn’t be able to watch. “I dare you to keep your eyes open, I double dog dare you,” he said. He wasn’t lying. Again, I don’t want to spoil it for those that want to be surprised, but it involves male corpse nudity, an intestine with teeth and every bodily fluid you’d expect to find in those organs. It may be the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen on TV, and I can’t wait to see if they can top it.
