  1. At the end of the series, the only people I still liked were Hutch, Chloe, Petra and Brandon. Basically the young "legacy". The old guys are all various degrees of disappointing. Except maybe Skyfox/George who is probably Dead All Along, murdered by Walter and framed as a supervillain. I hope the show gets renewed because despite some slow parts, it is an interesting premise that I've never seen explored before, and I want to see what happens next.
  2. There are a lot of problematic aspects of race dynamics in this show.
  3. You managed to put into words something that has niggled at me for a while but I've been unable to articulate: while Daphne's actions tend to be rationalised by her inexperience and the time period she exists in, criticism of Simon's actions are viewed by modern lores, and downplay his trauma.
  4. The duel is closing the gate after the horse or however the saying goes. If the story gets out, it won’t restore her reputation. It would just leave one man dead and another a fugitive but the scandal remains. Also at the time, they didn’t realize anyone knew about the garden encounter. If anything, news of the duel - which will get out what with one man dead/injured and the other fled - will make people ask questions that they might not have asked. Whichever scenario, the duel doesn’t help solve anything but Anthony’s pride. That’s why she’s pissed.
  5. OMG, your entire comment got me in stitches. So does anyone think Mary/Luke is still happening or just me?
  6. I'm sorry but.. what? Sex wasn't invented in the 21st century! For as long as humans have been smashing genitals together (read: forever), there've been more frisky business than a moment that was, IMO, rather vanilla dirty talk.
  7. I'm glad I'm not the only one that was taken out by Julie in the backseat urban legend. I loved Mary coaching Ryan through the heroic pose. Ryan writing to Kate is a nice nod to season 1, but I wish they'd figured a less hamfisted way to start it. I think that's the problem with this season and the recast of sorts - it's all a bit hamfisted to fit Ryan into a story/world that was built for Kate. It's still enjoyable, but there are already dangling threads like Sophie, beginning to fray.
  8. In the Pilot, I think Kate asked Luke to modify the Batman suit to fit her so it’s really the same suit.
  9. Consenting to sexual intercourse does not automatically include consenting to ejaculation into a vagina, and conception. That’s why birth control exists. Non consensual condom removal - including intentionally damaging a condom - is a sexual crime and is classed as reproductive coercion, sexual assault or rape in different countries. This is actually victim blaming, which seems to be exactly what the show runners were going for
  10. This seems like an opportunity to genderbend Sophie and establish Benedict in a gay OTP. I would love to see an mlm spin on Cinderella.
  11. I want to see more of Anthony and Simon's bromance. They're practically shippable, their chemistry is that good. I imagine happily-wedded Simon and bride-searching Anthony having some great banter. If they can do this while shirtlessly wrestling, even better. I'm still holding out hope for Eloise/Penelope endgame and gay or bi Benedict.
  12. I also could have done without the Numbers speech. But the new season premiere wasn't bad. I like that the fake!Bruce is out of the picture because without Kate, that storyline won't have had the same impact. So who else thinks that Ryan Wilder has some superpowers now?
  13. Daphne is 21. I will always remain confused how Simon's decision not to immediately disclose years of psychological abuse to her became equivalent to lying. He always made it clear that he couldn't have children. If he had promised Daphne the opposite or at least given her the impression that their "conjugal efforts" would lead to childbirth, then this would be a lie. Not explaining the details of not having the children is just that - not giving her all the information. Lying means giving her false information. This insistence always feels like victim-blaming to me. A way to fram
  14. She wasn’t angry, she was frustrated. She hadn’t had a proper conversation with him. She didn’t know if what he told the Queen was true or just another part of the ruse to get the license. She didn’t know if he hated her for forcing him into marriage. She thought they’d get to clear the air on their wedding night and he puts them in separate rooms! Daphne probably thought that for like 2 seconds before Simon made it painfully clear that just because he liked kissing her didn’t mean he wanted to marry her. They say why in their big love declarations. Simon feels sick with
