I loved it. Definite "girl power" stuff, and a few things in the last few minutes were a little cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised. One thing you neglected to mention in the review that I thought was pretty bad-ass. Superman in all of the movies (not sure about comics) had a handful of people from Krypton to fight. Kara has an entire maximum security prison of villains with the same strength as her. Holy crap! The most unbelievable moment for me was when her sister was in the hallway talking through the door. She's a secret agent yet having a totally confidential conversation in a public hallway? HUH? Calista Flockhart's character will need depth soon, but I think she can bring it. LOVED the chemistry between Kara and both James and Winn. I knew he knew lol. I also liked how they really set the stage well here - not spoon-feeding us info. We already have a lot of answers, and a good number of questions, to maintain our interest. I agree that the main actress is refreshing and believable.
Yeah, it was hard to take any of the rambling complaining after that sentence seriously. Most of it didn't even make sense.
Sorry, wrong thread dude. Take this stuff elsewhere.
He's like Peter. Peter could only hold one at a time. Sylar could hold them all.
I enjoyed the episode and was alarmed at the Director NOT taking Red up on his offer, so I'm sure we'll find out why later. All good theories. I realized when they aired the news that the finale was coming up soon that we have had NOOO progress on the "who the hell is Red to Liz" storyline. I thought we were coming close when they were standing on the shipping crate on the boat, then nada. I'm getting a little frustrated by the sidelining of that. Anyone else? Or am I just being cantankerous today? :)
I only have one major complaint about the episode, and that is that Noah was SO insistent that he check Claire's head, that if that is blocked, it could be preventing the healing. Just because the doctor said it was a cardiac thing, per the logic of her power, shouldn't matter. She can regenerate any tissue. Her multi-story falls aren't just bones, it's squished and ruptured organs, etc. Theoretically, a heart attack should not kill her (or any other cardiac "event"). So. He's in the morgue. He has her. He HOLDS her. And he doesn't LOOK??? It was such a jarring lapse in logic to me that I actually couldn't enjoy much for a while after that. Did anyone else see something/know something I missed that makes that actually make sense? I had the same reaction you all did too re Tommy (Nathan)'s mom. Well-played, mom.
I think it is nearly unanimous... this episode was well-done and interesting to watch, but it was really hard to invest as much as I'd like with SO much hanging in the balance.
Yup. I thought "awesome, let Belle be the hero! She's always been more brave anyhow!" aaaaand then NOPE. Damsel in distress.
I had mixed feelings about Will (that got mixed-er after reading the reviews and round table). 1 - he could have been halfway hideous, but as the only human (we think?) on the planet, falling in love was almost a foregone conclusion.2 - timeline wise it makes sense - think of the most serious relationships you've had, you knew sooner than how long she was there if you were in love, and that's often with a casual start. Add the seriousness and exclusiveness of their situation and of course they'd be in love. About Fitz and betrayal, I don't feel like Jemma betrayed him. I feel like the writers betrayed us shippers lol. But, as someone pointed out, she never felt the same for him. I was hoping that had changed upon her return - and maybe it did?. I am afraid she has some "element" of the darkness in her now from that thing. I do hope Will is not involved in the evil thing but it's possible. Amazing episode though. Elizabeth Henstridge was mesmerizing.
I didn't want to go there... but...Had the same thought like holy crap don't make a baby on the scary planet.
