Cersei Lannister needs to watch her back. Sansa is shaping up to have a warg for a brother, a Faceless Assassin for a sister, Petyr Baelish as an ally, and the power of The Vale behind her. Sansa Stark may wind up being the baddest b!tch in all of Westeros. SANSA GOT SWAGGER!
Well, players are moving into place. It’s going to be interesting to see how the pieces come into play. We are halfway through the season and it’s going to be interesting how all these threads come together.
The show does like ending episodes with me wanting to scream at the screen. Geez. While they are great at toeing the right level of tension, the scene in the bathroom just kind of fills you with terror.
Sansa dont’ front. It’s been a long road and it took a sniveling child, but Sansa is finally standing up for herself. Good on her for smacking Robin after he had a tantrum and destroyed her little snow Winterfell. That kid is an obnoxious cretin.
Not to be outdone by any stunt team in the history of television, this show’s team outdid themselves in every fight scene created. Case in point: the Arrow version of West Side Story. Seeing the line of Team Arrow and Friends advancing on Slade’s army brought metaphorical tears to my eyes and I half expected them to break out in song. Which song was the real question as Staying Alive was the tune in my head at the time. I know, I have a problem with disco. Go ahead, I dare you to rewatch that scene and not hum the tune.
Really, Disney? What? You’re not selling enough copies of Frozen on DVD and other Frozen related merch?
This episode got me thinking about musical iconography.
In three seasons, we’ve been from the Enchanted Forest to Wonderland to Neverland to Oz. We’ve also been to Black & White Movie Land and have been up the beanstalk (Heh. UP YOUR BEANSTALK!!!!). Where to next?
They finally got it right! I’ve been wracking my brain for the past 48 hours, trying to determine how best to articulate just what was so right with this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but in truth, I’m still at a bit of a loss. Was it the action? The character development? Further expansion of the plot? The return of Cobie Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
