All the Arrow reviewers and recappers I checked out seemed to think Maseo's
comment was just too obnoxious, but I laughed SO HARD. And yes -- the
Thea-Oliver relationship is so great! This writing team is so good at all
sorts of relationships except the romantic ones (sigh). And I am not an
anti-romance person! I like romantic storylines! These are just ... not
good romantic storylines.
The 100 - My grimdark complaints are really more about the Ark, I guess,
and how we seemed to be meant to see Jaha and Kane's actions, or Abby
turning in her husband, as horrible but justifiable. Seriously, every time
Abby compares turning in her husband to something Clarke's done, my
response is: Uh, no. No, it is not like killing Finn to prevent him from
being tortured. No, it is like sacrificing people to maintain a long-term
strategy (whether or not that sacrifice is necessary or justifiable). You
turned someone in for wanting to tell people something they had a right to
know! You killed someone for nothing! This is not comparable!
I was so glad to hear Kane acknowledged that Clarke's actions are driven by
the Ark as much as (or more than) the Grounders. I feel like I've been
waiting for someone to acknowledge how barbaric the Ark is since I started
watching the show. You're right that there's been some implicit
acknowledgement of the Mt. Weather people demonizing the Grounders, but it
would be good to see more acknowledgement of the Ark people doing so.
I am really afraid the season will end with Clarke ordering a massacre of
Mt. Weather. I am also afraid of Lexa dying and passing the leadership on
to Clarke and/or Indra dying and passing the leadership on to Octavia, for
Agent Carter - A few weeks ago, everyone seemed to be predicting
cancellation. Now people are backing off a little, but it still doesn't
I hadn't thought I was that into the Peggy-Jarvis dynamic, but it was SO
MUCH my favorite part of the last episode. (That and Peggy wanting a
second chance to keep Steve safe. :((( She couldn't save her fridged
boyfriend! OH, PEGGY.)
Jane - Why is this a week with no Jane? My life is dark and joyless.
