    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    His motivation seems horrific to me. The Night King is comparable to a nuclear war, or a large asteroid hitting the Earth in our time. Even then we'd have a better chance of saving the history of our civilization than Westeros if The Night King wins. Bran and The Citadel are basically Westeros's internet/only library; when they go all the accumulated knowledge of Westeros will been gone forever. The Night King not only wants to commit genocide of every living being in Westeros, and possibly beyond, he also wants to commit the genocide of their memory. Thousands of years of history, hundreds of generations of families, countless individuals, erased; it will be like none of it ever existed. It would've been a coin toss if they believed him. These people need the truth to literally walk up and slap them in the face twice before they believe it's real.

    S01.E13: Recovering the Satellites

    I want Alex/Kyle too! I'm just not feeling Alex/Michael at all, but there's something there when Alex and Kyle are together. Maybe it's their longer history, troubled as it was, and because they're on the same page which let's them work well together that I can see their relationship becoming romantic. Alex and Michael always seem to be at odds and turn the angst up to eleven every chance they get; it's annoying and not very fun to watch. I'm not sure I can root for Maria/Michael as long she's kept in the dark about the trio, Michael in particular. It would help if Michael trusted Maria enough to tell her without her having to figure it out herself. Michael probably respects Maria more than anyone, but until I see him actively put her first, I can't support them as a couple. I was caught off guard because I did not recognize what song it was until the refrain, then it hit me square in the feels.

    I was intensely uncomfortable the whole time and loved every second. It was awesome watching two talented actors really go for it like that. I almost feel like their make up scene didn't quite calm the waves that fight made in their relationship. I think I know where Iris's head is at when it comes to Nora working with Thawne. She does care that Nora worked with Barry's mother's killer, but Iris is one of those parents who feels once they have children the parent's issues need to take a back seat. I think to Iris, Barry is selfishly putting his feelings ahead of their daughter's when they should be supporting Nora and helping set her straight as a family. I feel for Barry, but I think he was a hundred percent more emotionally compromised than Iris was. If he really thought Nora couldn't be trusted, and that Thawne was corrupting her, why did he put her back in a future where she's one of the most powerful people in the world? If Nora turns there are very few people around capable of stopping her. If Barry was thinking straight he would have kept Nora around long enough to figure out if she really is dangerous. Instead, he dumps her in the future and lets her be future!Iris's problem because BETRAYAL! His reaction was fueled almost entirely on man-pain. I hope not. I would be pleased if Nora bucks convention and acts in a way that doesn't make me wish Iris and Barry divorce and erase Nora West-Allen from existence. I would have liked to see future!Iris; find out if she remembers the new past Nora's presence there created. I liked the ice slide fight between Icicle and Killer Frost.

    Apparently. Might contain spoilers.

    Is it a books thing? No shade, but I don't remember any incest or even a hint of it happening to the TV versions of the Starks. Although, considering GRRM planned to pair Arya and Jon at one point, I realize I might have missed something.

    I think a lot of people in Westeros care about incest. It might not be a jail-able or capital offense, but it seems like the practice is at least frowned upon. And despite his bloodline Jon was raised a Stark; I don't imagine Ned and Cat raised their children to hand wave incest.

    Yeah, but Jon's feelings about the incest wasn't even on Dany's radar.

    I fully expected Dany to deny it was true, but I did not expect her to jump three hundred miles over the incest part of her and Jon's relationship and be all about who gets the crown. What's a little incest compared to the Iron Throne, right? Jesus. Sir Brienne of Tarth. I like the sound of that.

    S04.E13: The Seam

    To me The Magicians has always been an ensemble. Q was never my entry character because I did not like him until season 3. I kept watching despite him being the "lead" character. I'll miss the fuck out of Quentin, but I will be watching next season because I love the other characters just as much as I love Q.

    I was fine until they sang together, and it was so beautiful. That's when it really started to hurt. I hated Q in the beginning. I hated everything about him. Now, I'm sitting here ugly crying because he's dead. And apparently Fen and Josh might be dead too. Wonderful. This finale is going have me sad for a good, long while.

    Instead they make her an immature fuck-up. I'm still trying to figure out why they're allowed to torture him on what seems like a daily basis. Preach. I'm at the point where the sound of her voice grates my nerves. She did great! I think she could have given the actors in the smaller roles more life, but her direction of the mains was on point. I have to say Kathryn Gallagher as Lia was the only thing that made the future parts bearable. I was sorry to see her go.

    I hope seeing the Night King's army with their own eye makes them finally face reality, because I'm sick and tired of their ignorance.

    I thought I wanted Arya and Jon's reunion more than anything until I saw Jamie meet eyes with King Bran. I'm with Bran: They don't have time for Sansa and Dany's mean girls bs. And I have no sympathy for the People of the North complaining about Jon bending the knee. There's a fucking zombie army coming to literally eat the world, who gives a shit about a crown? Worry about it after (if) you survive the zombie apocalypse. Everything else is nonsense.

    Karen is the worst. I was not disappointed by Danny The Street. I wish we got to see more of Dannyzens having a good time and living their best lives, but I love what we did get to see. I also loved the songs. I had tears in my eyes during People Like Us and was a little heartbroken it was all in Larry's imagination.
