That was so the best opening of a superhero show ever. I kid you not, my first note said if the entire episode sucks it was worth it for that opening. If you missed it, basically Chloe, Alek and Jasmine are running all action sequencey and then Chloe fucking doubles over in pain, wheezing for air. Fabulous!
I really appreciate the insistence on training. A lot of shows (and movies) tend to have the supernatural mastered quickly. I found it refreshing that not only is Chloe forced to consistently train but that her superpowers don’t instantly mean super-muscles. She’s sore and tired and I like the realism. (Yes, I’m aware that I’m talking about realism on a show about an ancient race of cat gods.) The consistent training throughout the episode greatly improved my impression from last week. Sure it wasn’t totally badass supernatural stuff but it was supernatural and furthered some of Chloe’s powers. Works for me.
Brian just got all kinds of intriguing to me this episode. I want to know more about his mom.
I still say Paul is adorable. The actor has like no range but I do think it’s adorable that he wants to be a sidekick.
Let’s just assume that I love Chloe’s mom until I say otherwise.
Can we trade Amy for Lana? Sure Lana’s bitchy but with good reason. Amy’s just a bitch. And Lana has better fashion. Also, very much appreciate that Lana was the one to finally take Jesse out. Sure she was dumb about it initially (or naïve) but I like that it wasn’t just the super-heroine that got to save the day.
I love the idea that Brian’s dad is just another flunky for The Order instead of a big name in the organization.
Alek was cracking me up this episode. I know he was supposed to be all serious (and he was) but he was also hysterical with his close talker business and actively trying to annoy Chloe.
Jasmine became waaay more interesting in this episode. She was nice and friendly and had a personality. She can stay.
My pet peeve impression improved slightly by Valentina’s creepy threats about Brian. Not because I want Brian getting hurt but because it makes her more interesting.
Um, a round of applause for Chloe standing up for herself to Amy. *Applause* And again. *Applause*. Once more. *Applause*. That speech was awesome and so well deserved. Chloe was like tough and self-assured and awesome. Why can’t more female characters be like her? You know, besides Buffy and Caroline. Also, the fact that Chloe forgave Amy makes her equally endearing. My favorite superhero women are as forgiving as they are badass.
Witty retorts while kicking some lame guy’s ass? Perfection.
First, the name Valentina. It’s bad enough to deal with Valentine in The Mortal Instruments but now this. Valentine is not an interesting name. It’s one of the most annoying fucking names on the planet. Which leads me to people named Valentina. Equally annoying. Cathy mentioned that they thought Valentina was possibly evil and I fucking hope so. Otherwise she’s just pissing me off for no reason.
AMY IS A BITCH. And seriously at dinner, is she sitting at a table, with no tablecloth, with her legs spread in a short skirt?! Who the fuck does she think she is, Sookie Stackhouse?! But on the positive side, maybe this means Amy can be off the show soon? Pretty pretty please with a hot boy on top? (Hell, always a hot boy on top.)
My deepest apologies but there is no Cute Boy of the Week Alert. That Jesse guy was kind of cute in the store but then he turned into a violent, not even worth being called a douche, scumbag so no one wins. Alek was cute all episode just not pause the show so I can take a good long look at that kind of cute.
So with Chloe. Unfrosted corn byproducts taste like shit. I’m a Cinnamon Toast Crunch girl.
If this show pulls some sort of crazy ass shit where Brian is Chloe’s half brother, I will be so pissed off.
