At the end of the day, our feet hurt and the girl was pouting because she had no Minecraft or Dragons: Riders of Berk equipment to take home with her, but considering her burgeoning love of Clue, Settlers of Catan, and colorful dice, I feel confident she will one day be the gamer I want her to be.
I like how when Morgana became evil her hair morphed into a living, breathing creature. It entrances me almost as much as Merida’s in Brave and I bet it takes way longer to make it look like that than actually making it look neat. I would like to be evil, too.
If Metatron cast the angels out of heaven, doesn’t that mean he is the only one up there and therefore driving the bus? Does that make him God? Who is God anyway? Why did he bail? Where did he go? Who is he (I know, he’s Morgan Freeman, right)?
Emotionally powerful moments were the hallmark of this finale. I honestly don’t think I was prepared for it. I was so impressed by the interaction and display of emotion in this final scene that I forgot I was watching a TV show. I nearly cried and I am not a crier. We can only guess now at the ramifications of this move.
You know what, this week’s Arrow was so exciting I nearly puked. No kidding. That is how I respond to tension. But that’s okay because it made for great tv…not the puking, the tension and suspense.
I must say, the last couple of episodes of the show have kinda felt like old times, you know, the good ole demon-blood-drinking days of the apocalypse. I am not sure why, perhaps it’s Sam being the center of strange activity, or once again, the many trips to Indiana.
We were shown a lot of backstory this week as Malcolm and others in the group planned “the undertaking” and we witnessed the launch of the Queen’s Gambit on its fatal voyage. The worst part about these flashbacks: Oliver’s hair. College-age Oliver was truly creepy, like some Ted Bundy-like serial killer.
Don’t get me wrong. I like Felicia Day and all she stands for, but a little of her goes a long way. Kind of like Sriracha sauce.
This episode would have been better titled something like “Broken Promises” or “Leaving is the Hardest Part” because it was chock full of goodbyes.
