Constance is accusatory. Athos uncovers proto-revolutionary plotters. War refugees whine and are ungrateful. D’Artagnan has moral instincts. Lonely and sad people whine. TPTB did not do their considerable best with this ep. Constance spends most of her time on this show being disliked, badly. The prettification of history bores. This was so very boring. Louis knows his ‘son’ isn’t his. No implacable menace here.
“He’s the son of an army whore.”
“I’ve been sneered at by better men. They’re dead now.”
“Go back to the gutter.”
“Did that creature just speak to me?”
Non wants to remake Earth. Didn’t ‘Charmed’ do a similar plot with the Avatars? Myriad only affects National City. Cat makes a Harrison Ford joke. Where does Supergirl keep her phone? Max Lord and Cat are unaffected and team up with Supergirl. Indigo pouts. Dr Danvers (Helen Slater) babbles and sees a big green man.
There are author tracts, no super-bout fight, no narrative space and no earnest ruminations. Non has cool amusement as he is morally righteous. This was not evocative and had no wit, humanity or melancholy. The POTUS is a woman. Lord is a grown up and mean psychologically unstable nut full of insincerity and is of no moral significance. Indigo has cold and studied indifference and cold loathing.
People stand around Cat-co which is oddly undamaged from the Kara/Hank fight. There is a ‘Terminator’ ripoff and grunting. Is Jonn dead? There is eminently unsatisfactory dialogue. There is a cliffhanger as a mind-controlled Alex in a stupid suit fights Kara. It’s a ‘Batman vs. Superman’ ripoff!
“I know not your face human.”
“Once started Myriad can not be stopped.”
“Everything I have feared has come to pass.”
“He’s a shape shifter from Mars.”
“This doesn’t look like victory to me.”
“She choose wrong.”
“You missed one.”
“This evil can’t touch you.”
“Have you no shame?”
“Max’s moronic attempt to save the city.”
“To worship you, as I do.”
“I promise I will try, very very hard.”
“What are we winning?”
