8.02 What's Up, Tiger Mommy?

At Plutus' auction, Mr. Vili bids a bone from the frost giant Ymir on Mjölnir, but Plutus doesn't accept the bid. Mr. Vili then adds "5/8 of a virgin" (the remains of the bank employee) and buys the weapon.

After Plutus is killed by Beau and Crowley, Beau opens fire on Sam and Kevin. Sam grabs Mjölnir and uses it to kill him with a blow to the head. He then faces Mr. Vili, and realizing he killed a woman to get his "5/8 of a virgin," swings at Mr. Vili, killing him, leaving behind only a pile of clothes. It can be assumed that Sam took the weapon afterwards.

Mjölnir in Lore

In Norse mythology Mjölnir is a weapon of great power, owned by Thor, god of thunder. Mjölnir is described as being one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of levelling mountains. After Thor used the hammer and tossed it against a target, the hammer would levitate itself, returning to Thor. Thor could also cast and then generate lightning with Mjölnir. The hammer could revive animals or people or even create. The hammer could be magically shrunken to fit inside Thor’s shirt
