Oh, another good, distinctive episode. This one felt like a 60s sci-fi movie. And Aujanue Ellis was wonderful.
I especially enjoyed the writing in this one. The dialogue, Hippolyta's ruminations all just resonated to my soul. And yeah, just beautifully written.
Also, I couldn't help but contrast Hippolyta's journey of self realization with Ruby's. They both started at the same place -- that feeling of being 'not seen' and small and the societal limitations artificially placed on black women. But Hippoltya's journey was characterized by logic, intellect and discovery. Whereas Ruby's was based on deceit, bitterness and raw emotion. I believe when we see Hippolyta again, she will have gotten more from her journey than Ruby got from hers.
Speaking of Ruby, how boss did she look in her shorts outfit and her super cool shades? I loved her and Leti's conversations... again the writing in the episode as stellar.
And finally the threads are starting to knit together. It was frustrating that everyone was working in silos and not telling anyone anything. But the lines are starting to converge.
Finally with this episode, I am realizing that although pre-release the show seems to suggest that Tic was most important character. And in some ways he is, because a lot of stuff does revolve around him, but it is the women -- Leti, Ruby, Hippolyta, Ji-Ah -- and next week, possible Dee --- who are becoming really central to each episode and really bringing their A-game.
And finally, next week's 'genre' looks like a Stephen King thriller. Can't wait.
