Carnivàle, S01 E1 - Milfay

Before the beginning, after the great war between Heaven and Hell, God created the Earth, and gave dominion over it to the crafty ape he called man. And to each generation there was born a creature of light, and a creature of darkness. And great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between good and evil. There was magic then, nobility, and unimaginable cruelty. So it was… until the day that a false sun exploded over Trinity, and man traded away wonder for reason.

Ben Hawkins + Brother Justin Crowe: Carnivale Season One

2

On the heels of the skirmish men foolishly called the War to End All Wars, the Dark One sought to elude his destiny, live as a mortal. So he fled across the ocean, to an empire called America. But by his mere presence, a cancer corrupted the spirit of the land. People were rendered mute by fools who spoke many words but said nothing. For whom oppression and cowardice were virtues, and freedom… an obscenity. And into this dark heartland, the prophet stalked his enemy, till, diminished by his wounds, he turned to the next in the ancient line of Light. And so it was that the fate of mankind came to rest on the trembling shoulders of the most reluctant of saviors. – Samson

Ben Hawkins + Brother Justin Crowe: Carnivale Season Two

Hey there Carnivale fandom, are you there?

I got a question.

Is Scudder an “avatar” like Ben and Justin? (Is Justin like an evil avatar?) Also Belyakov? This is my second time watching this show. I was a kid when it first came out so its been awhile. Also I started watching less towards the end of the show because Justin’s black demon eyes scared me and gave me nightmares.
