Martin is as mad as a bad of badgers and Malcolm is not far off. Malcolm has racing, intrusive thoughts and altered assumptions as well as contending with his serial killer psycho dad. The girl in the box is the season arc and Jessica sneers. Why does Malcolm wear 3 piece suits? Dani broods. Did Jessica divorce her husband? Jessica isn't warm and caring. People deny Malcolm's experience of and perceptions of his own life. Everything is a grim reminder of his childhood and the sister's obsession with psycho dad grows. Is something more sinister there? Molly dealers die. Why does Malcolm have such trusting guilelessness with his psycho dad? He should be wary of any interaction with psycho dad.
There was melodrama and Malcolm is opposing psycho dad's legacy. There is no overall of positivity. How profound an influence was psycho dad on Malcolm? Gangs lurk. This was underlit and Malcolm is preoccupied with psycho dad. This was next to useless and Jessica's shunned by the charity mafia. She still has her married name. Eve shows up. Jessica says Martin is her ex. Eve can't act.
Dani talks of her undercover days. Malcolm trips. Why does he have 6 axes? Jessica burnt all of psycho dad's photos and momentos. Malcolm had a secret box as a child. Jessica claims she burnt it, but she didn't. Where are Jessica's family the Miltons? Malcolm's secret box shows up. Who feeds his birds? Who took the photo of psycho dad and Malcolm by the psycho-mobile? Malcolm loves a good root through a shoebox.

All Souls And Sadists
Malcolm's obsessed with the psycho-mobile. It's one week since 1x04. Ainsley wants to interview psycho dad. Ainsley lacks cool dispassion. Psycho dad mocks SJW. Ainsley is mired in resentment that she's not the favourite child. Malcolm looks for the psycho-mobile. It has lots of space for a body. He freaks out a car salesman. Ainsley has a boyfriend and a big glass apartment.
Malcolm's shrink worries about his faded impressions of life and does ominious warnings. It's coming up to Halloween. Malcolm is scared of psycho dad and psycho dad has given Malcolm good reason to be. Ainsley isn't scared and she isn't his priority. A stab victim is found in the woods.
Ainsley annoys and Malcolm hallcinates psycho dad. What is psycho dad doing in a loony bin doing group thearpy with no restraints? Psycho dad annoys unsparingly. Gil broods and Malcolm goes on about a jocasta complex. There are implications and a storm of anger. Malcolm has an uncompromising stance as he probes the darkest recesses of his memory. Someone has sheer anger and this was not utterly endearing.
Jessica has no sense of boundaries. The psycho-mobile is found. Ainsley whines that she was never a debutante. This was improbable. The obvious twist is obvious and it finally shows up. Malcolm runs around the city with a plastic bag containing a victim of a 12 year old nutjob. Why is the 12 year old left with his mother's boyfriend? There are negative connotations and this didn't go well. This was completely irritating and Malcolm had the wrong perspective. The 12 year old has no future.

The Trouble With Maggie Cole 1x04
Maggie causes havoc on her family yet thinks she she makes friends wherever she goes. It is dispirting beyond measure that Maggie thinks her 'community contribution' should be forgotten and she has indifference to her own racism and snobbery.
Maggie whines about her pariah status as though she had nothing to do with it. She's not contrite and rubbish gangsters lurk. The bitchy secretary bitches and Maggie has no competence or empthay. Maggie waxes indignantly, frequently and at considerable length about her 'victim' status. Maggue has unbelievable petulance and is tearful. This was not gloriously gloomy and she has intended complacency.
One doesn't care about Maggie's dramatic fall from grace. Unpopular decisions are made and things are falsely ascribed. A jerkass plots. Maggie is shamed in public. WTF is she being shamed for?
“Drugged up workshy waste of space.”
“Made me chop down the plum tree.”
“It's like 'The Wicker Man'.”
The Female Of The Species
We get flashbacks to a happy naked Butcher. The Deep whines. Random edgelord stuff that I DO NOT CARE ABOUT happens. Butcher blathers, people lurk and Homelander and Queen Maeve do something gross involing a hijacked plane. I've no idea what this ep was about. The Deep does something stupid involving a dolphin. People are epically untrustworthy and this was crap. Homelander is a psychopath.
Good For The Soul
A-Train is vile and murders Popclaw. Nobody adapts their behaviour to avoid conflict and chaos. Hughie and Starlight continue their boring relationship. Elisabeth Shue is orange. Hughie is dumb. Queen Maeve has a drink problem? Stargirl does a speech. Butcher uncovers the supes' secrets and uses a baby as a weapon. Stargirl is such a bitch. Homelander gets more disturbing. This was crap.
“I miss you.”
“You don't get to say that to me.”
There is a terribly cheesy ad for The Seven. Homelander is vile some more. Queen Maeve is really awful. Butcher gets angry. The Deep is kicked out of The Seven. Seth Rogen has a cameo. We see a hasbeen supe hanging out with other hasbeens like Tara Reid and Billy Zane. Haley Joel Osment plays the hasbeen supe! Butcher does feelings. How DO you defeat an invincible lunatic like Homelander who grew up in a cell? Melrose from 'GLOW' is in this ep. The supes are creating their own super-villains to fight. This was okish.
