Episode Recap: Frigg Magnet

Agnetha continues trying to win the boys over to her side by taking Ty and Axl out to dinner, but when Ty gets 'detained' by Eva and doesn't show, Axl is left to face the dragon alone ... a task he manages relatively successfully, managing to steer Agnetha in the direction of affirming his decision to work on becoming more of a man. This, Axl has decided, includes knuckling down and working on his studies.

Unfortunately, when Axl decides to become a man of more dedicated learning, it coincides with the appearance of Colin in his building class as the most depressing (if not brutally honest) guest lecturer ever. Axl buttonholes Colin and gets from him the confirmation that he is on the right path, trying to become a better God through being a better Man ... though Colin doesn't think mucking round in the building trade is the way to achieve this. And Mike, for his part, thinks the whole "be a Man to become a God" angle is a waste of time.

Agnetha, meanwhile, is becoming increasingly worried about Ty and the detrimental effect Eva is having on his health and welfare. With the aid of Anders, she attempts to steer Ty, her most favored son, away from his wife ... and in the direction of Dawn, who clearly still loves Ty. This course of action, however, doesn't work, as Ty has it in his head that he and Dawn can never be together.

Ultimately, all both Mike and Agnetha manage to do is to steer their chosen charges in completely the wrong direction. Axl stomps off to meet Colin, who starts him on his Manliness lessons by getting him completely trashed at the bar where they found Kvasir in the last episode. The next morning Axl wakes up with a beautiful woman leaving his room and no recollection of events the night before.

Oh, Loki ... what have you done?

Whatever did take place that night takes a turn towards the dark side when Colin informs Axl that the woman, Brianna, a junior lawyer at Colin's firm, is claiming that some non-consensual sex took place. Axl freaks out as Mike and Olaf take control of the situation and head off to meet Colin.

As Mike and Olaf confront Colin, he admits that the allegations against Axl are bogus -- it was his mischievous revenge for Axl laughing at his offer of help in the last episode and a way to send the Johnsons a message to stop pretending to be Gods and leave God business to those who actually deserve to be called Gods. Mike, in a wager over Axl's massive bar tab from the night before, wins the bar ... which, it ends up, Colin owns (of course he does).

Thus it comes to pass that Mike finds a place to call his own, Ty is driven deeper into the arms of Eva (with a branding ceremony to prove it) and Axl is innocent of all allegations. But as Axl and Zeb celebrate the clearing of Axl's good name, they become aware of a new arrival at the flat: Gaia, looking for a place to stay.
