Axl and Freki contemplate the stalled Frigg quest over beers. (Zeb has started calling himself Freki, the name of Odin's trusty wolf.)
Axl urges the newly bearded Anders to continue with the Frigg quest, though his older brother is more interested in his upcoming trip to "somewhere cold."
Ty is a bit too busy with his new bride Eva, who's looking to christen every square inch of their new house, to worry about the Frigg quest.
And Mike's occasionally dangerous enjoyment of his newly single life doesn't leave too much time for questing.
Axl vows to find Frigg without the help of his brothers as his trusty wolf Freki howls in approval.
Axl now has to be the older brother as the wild lifestyle of his new flatmate Mike is making for a disruptive household. Hey, at least the God of Games is never short of cash for rent.
... that is, when she's not stalking her ex-beau, Ty.
Meanwhile, there's still no love lost between Eva and her ever-scheming lawyer father Colin ... aka, Loki, the God of Fire and, uh, Mischief.
At least he's trying to bond with his new son-in-law.
Mike claims the reason he's been rendered useless on the Frigg quest is because he "can't hunt without a scent." While out and about with Axl, he seems to get one ...
As Anders is "somewhere cold" (actually Norway), Agnetha shows up at his PR office and claims she's taking over the business in his absence ... much to the surprise of Dawn.
Zeb, Axl and Mike are the first guests at Ty and Eva's housewarming party. Stacey is still acting as handmaiden to Eva ... even though it's been revealed that Eva is Hel, Goddess of the Underworld, and not Frigg as everyone thought in Season One.
The Goddess of the Underworld and the God of All Things Cold make for the ultimate goth couple.
Oh, look who's here ... the Lady in Red herself, Michele. Wonder who she's gonna hook up with this time?
Colin surprisingly offers Axl his help on the Frigg quest, claiming he's "all about the love." What's he up to this time?
Oh look, Mom's here. Yes, let's not forget about Agnetha's revelation to Anders at the end of Season One -- though it's news to the rest of the Johnson boys.
Well, this was bound to happen.
The "tree sabbatical" ended when Elisabet took on the persona of an unfortunate woman who'd been murdered in the forest, thus becoming the Agnetha we all know and, uh, love.
As the Goddess of Prosperity, Agnetha has created a financial empire that would allow the Gods and Goddesses to put aside their differences and make their own personal Asgard here on Earth. Why bother looking for a Frigg who probably doesn't exist?
Not trusting the woman who abandoned them as kids (and recently tried to kill Axl), Mike finds new enthusiasm for the Frigg quest. His latest scent leads them to yet another bar ...
... where they meet Kvasir, wisest of the Gods ... and an old enemy of Olaf.
Kvasir makes a run for it but the boys soon corner him in an alley, where it's revealed that if a God asks him a question, he has no choice but to answer. When Axl asks him how to find Frigg, he responds, "You don't -- she'll find you."
And how will the Goddess find her God? The God must first become a Man ... worthy of being a God. Axl is understandably confused.
Before Axl can get further clarifiation, Kvasir gives him the slip by pissing into a drain -- as a God made from the saliva of all the other Gods, he's able to turn himself into liquid. Quite the nifty escape tactic!
