Plot Synopsis

THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS, a scripted one-hour series from New Zealand, follows the Johnson boys, four typical fun-loving guys who have inherited the power of Norse Gods. But these four brothers are no flashy superheroes, enduring everyday struggles -- searching for love, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling their God-like destiny -- while still enjoying a few beers with their friends. Syfy aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Friday, July 11, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. On Friday, September 5, 2014 at 11pm ET/PT, Syfy aired a two-hour season finale of THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS. In the first season's penultimate episode, "Hunting Reindeer on Slipper Rocks," Axl and Eva begin a hesitant relationship, which rapidly leads to an impetuous engagement. Zeb and Dawn suffer the consequences of being too close to Gods as one burns and the other freezes, while Ty suffers a broken heart as he realises he can never be with Dawn. Then, in "Every Good Quest Has a Sacrifice," the Season 1 finale, Axl starts having second thoughts about marrying Eva as he realizes that he loves his flatmate, Gaia, instead. However his decision to end the engagement is hampered by the revelation that the nuptial contract, given that it was signed in blood, will result in Mike's death if Axl backs out. To fulfill the contract and allow Axl to continue the quest, Ty marries Eva after breaking up with Dawn.
Syfy aired the U.S. premiere of Season 2 on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 11pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "And Then She Will Come to You," several months have passed and Mike is living with Axl and Zeb -- and appears to have abandoned the quest for Frigg. Meanwhile, Anders goes on a mission to Norway to secure a mysterious object.
