We are so not looking forward to a weekend without 'Ash vs Evil Dead' now that season one has wrapped and we have no idea when to expect season two. A re-watch of the final episode may be in order, just to get a glimpse of creator Sam Raimi's last homage to his horror hero Wes Craven.

Sam RaimiSam Raimi shows true respect for Wes Craven

Raimi has always been a huge fan of Craven, with his movies 'The Hills Have Eyes' and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' getting honourable mentions in various contexts within his 'Evil Dead' movie series. Now with the latter newly reprised as 'Ash vs Evil Dead', featuring the return of star Bruce Campbell 30 years later, he's seemingly made one last tribute to the late Craven by featuring the glove of 'Elm Street''s Freddy Krueger in the basement of that old cabin.

It was almost a tear-jerking moment; it hasn't been five months since director Craven, who is also known for the 'Scream' franchise, passed away at the age of 76 following a struggle with brain cancer. So, to see his ultimate protégé still thinking about him during his writing is truly heart-warming.

The first time Raimi paid tribute to Craven was in 1981's 'The Evil Dead' in which he featured a poster for 'The Hills Have Eyes'. Since then it's been a back and forth thing between the two, Craven responding with a mention of 'The Evil Dead' in 1984's 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. After that, Raimi featured the Krueger glove in 'Evil Dead 2', and Craven added footage of 'The Evil Dead' to 'Scream'.

A small, rather poignant detail of note is that the first time Raimi used the Krueger glove, it had blades attached to it. Now, since Craven's death, the glove hangs on the wall of the cabin in 'Ash vs Evil Dead' blade-less.

Aside from that, final episode 'The Dark One' left the whole series wide open - literally. The crew drive away to the safety of Jacksonville, not totally convinced that the evil is totally under control. After all, that basement door remains very prominently open. Spooky.
