‘Lovecraft Country’: Night at the museum

Our heroes go all Indiana Jones in the new episode of HBO’s creepy “Lovecraft Country” (Sunday at 9 p.m.), and there’s danger from the very last place anyone would expect.

Warning! Minor spoilers to this temple of doom follow! Beware!

In “A History of Violence,” teleplay by Misha Green, story by Wes Taylor and directed by Victoria Mahoney, Tic (Jonathan Majors) has had it with playing defense against constant supernatural threats.

He realizes he might be able to call on the powers in his bloodline to defend those he loves – if he can just figure out the right spells to conjure.

For that, he realizes he needs some missing pages from an arcane text that he believes are hidden in a Boston museum.

Time for a road trip!

No one is prepared for what they will encounter.

Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams) comes to a new understanding of his son.

Christina Braithwaite (Abbey Lee) thinks she just can barge into Leti’s (Jurnee Smollett) home. She is in for a surprise.

The supernatural threat seems to be extending its reach to those closest to Tic and Leti.

Hippolyta (Aunjanue Ellis) and her daughter, Diana (Jada Harris), seemed to be headed straight into danger.

Ruby (Wunmi Mosaku) suffers a crushing disappointment and confides in the very last person on the planet she should be talking to.

The hour ends with a shocking betrayal that changes everything.
