This was not searingly brilliant. Moss is a pathological deceiver. This is not a penetrating psychological study. Otherwise decent people have moral failings. Emily has relentless satisfaction, much like the utterly unrepentant Moss. It is said that Moss’ sidekicks acted unbeknownst to him. But did they really?
This is consciously theatrical. Moss is affronted at being accused of involvement in the racist flu. Season 3 was an improvement after the ghastly saga of season 2. Aaron copies his woman’s haranguing tone. Aaron’s woman needs to go, like Lyor. Kirkman has a justifiable defence for his actions in this ep. Emily whines. Kirkman is credibly ruthless in inevitable unavoidable fashion.
Moral boundaries are crossed. There is no terrifying urgency. Dante smugs. This was not emotion packed. The government still block Kirkman. His nearly being assassinated in season 1 is forgotten. Kirkman and Emily are fundamentally divided in their opinions.
Kirkman is elected POTUS. Mars wants his junkie wife to run for office. Aaron’s woman whines. Moss whines. Emily does something stupid. Aaron’s woman is pregnant. She’s cumbersome. There are arrests. What have you done Emily? This was mediocre. My mood response is undecided. There had better be a season 4.

“You couldn’t even kill your poor momma right!”
Adam West seems demotivated. Whenever a baddie shows up in Gotham, the result is invariably chaos. Batman controls every aspect of Robin’s life. There is no credibility or sense of drama. There is incaution and Robin is an automaton who submits to Batman. There is yet another full on brawl. Why does Batman have such absolute and total control of Robin?
“That’s a bum trip.”
“Make a bad scene.”
“Man-eating lilacs have no teeth Robin!”
“He’s thrown himself into the man-eating lilacs.”
“They’ll mob me.”
Sisko has homicidal fury toward Eddington. The holo-communicators debut but soon would never be seen or mentioned again. Eric Pierpoint guest stars. Sisko crosses a line, Dax thinks this is hilarious and there is techno babble. This was dull and not mesmerising.

“It would appear not.”
“A churro sabre.”
