This drama is unsustainable. Philip and Elizabeth are disrupters and have rueful self-knowledge and little affection. Paige feels terrifyingly urgent feels after watching the horror unfold in front of her in ‘The Day After’. Oleg broods and do they sincerely regret anything? Elizabeth does nasty things to her unfailingly polite ‘friends’. This was indigestible and not a virtuosic confection. Pastor Tim bores and offers no constructive guidance. Pastor Tim is all pomposisity and parasitism. Certain perceptions are held. People are miserable most of the time and Elizabeth does more vile things.
“It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”
“Nobody needs this!”
“I don’t trust us with this.”
“Making that poison for us.”
“Dropped the atom bomb. Twice.”
“This is why we’re here.”
A Kilgrave support group is set up. If Jessica would explain things instead of screaming and smashing stuff people would listen. The cop aka Simpson and Trish bond. Malcolm the neighbourhood junkie seems to have no point. Kilgrave causes paranoia and panic. I am increasingly disillusioned with this show. Trish is not nice. These are awful people and terrible memories of Kilgrave come out.
“Take sex pictures.”
“My mum blew half the jury to get me that award.”
“Wound up dead in my elevator.”
“I was committed to the scenario.”
AKA The Sandwich Saved Me
Kilgrave has a sense of entitlement. There is an absence of a general narrative thrust. There is no merriment. When was NY rebuilt after Loki and the aliens trashed it? An attempt to nab Kilgrave does awry. Kilgrave has minions. This was mediocre and there are unclear flashbacks. Kilgrave slimes and is ungallant. He has no Byronesque magnetism. Jessica acts erratically. This was of no consequence. Jessica is a hostile presence, acts unreliably and treats people like dirt. I have no deep faith in this concept.

“You bore me. Leave.”
“Try not to miss the toilet.”
Where is Max Lord? This was initially upbeat and full of technobabble. Cyborg Superman is acquisitive. Where are the LCorp staff? Maggie is injured. The Luthors are besmirched. There is no admirable honesty or solace for Lena. She and Kara defy their families desired wishes. Kara is an arbiter of disputes. Winn and James have ceased to have meaning. Hank overacts. Both of them. This was good. What is the Well Of Stars? There are cop-outs regarding the Maggie/Alex and J’onn becoming a White Martian plotlines.
