HR is from Earth 19. Iris sticks her nose in. Barry is contentedly awful. I think I had unrealistic hopes for season 3. This show and ‘Supergirl’ may be a spent force. This was tenuous. Snow’s mom has no esteem or affection for her. HR wears a dumb hat and mutters. Snow’s mother is not gravely concerned. There is no cold shiver of realisation that Snow could be this year’s big bad. A monster walks. Julian has a gun. Snow shows off her Killer Frost. Joe lectures. Cisco, Iris, Barry and Snow whine. Everyone worships at the altar of Barry’s sweaty jock. This was dull.
“Called ‘Sweaty Men’.”
“He didn’t really do anything did he?”
“You’ve been burned. Twice.”
“You’re just going to have to accept that.”
“Shaded the truth.”
Mary has unreal expectations for herself. Greer recalls her husband but not her stepchildren. Elizabeth has a portrait of her father and mutters about his jubilee. She plots against Lady Beatrice, who did not exist. Robert Dudley lurks. Elizabeth is predisposed to vengeance, Narcisse gets his shirt off and Catherine stomps. Greer’s husband is rescued from his oubliette. He doesn’t mention his children either. Women didn’t have bags in the 16th century as such. Nobody cares where Kenna is.
Charles hangs out at a casino. There are modern day attitudes to security. There is drama and Elizabeth’s long standing conviction about her mother’s innocence is shattered. This turns into a fight club episode at one point. Lola makes baseless assertions. Elizabeth is wiser than Mary. Lola is exasperatingly stupid. Francis’ bastard is in England - as if the Valois would let that happen.
This was good, the first good ep in ages. Greer and her husband reunite and she immediately demands he be a father to her unborn bastard child. He is browbeaten into it and they head off together. Bash tells Mary he’ll go to Scotland with her because he loves her still. There is poisoning and suspicion and people rationalise their own bad behaviour.
