    S04.E16: Hey World!

    Not my favourite finale but crossover shout out, sing songs and that amusement park did all add to the sublime silliness we've grown to be accustomed to with this show, so there's that. Neron and Tabitha did seem a little easily defeated but they were fun baddies to watch all season long. Trading Zari for Behrad, I'm not overly keen on even though I'm curious to see the latter working with the Legends. Astra getting all those evil souls to play around with seems to be a good way of keeping Constantine around for the next season, so I'm happy with that. Other than that, it's a bit of a wait for Season 5 but I'm sure it'll be worth it, 7/10

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    I didn't hate this finale, I even enjoyed a lot of parts of it but again, it probably could've been better than what we actually got, though that can be said for the whole season. I will hate how Daenerys's arc turned, given the shoddy build up to it, but I saw Jon killing her coming a mile off. Drogon taking her body away and melting the Iron Throne down though I didn't quite see but should've done. Bran becoming ruler of the Six Kingdoms, I also didn't like but who else aside from maybe Sansa would've been a better option to be honest? I did like Brienne, Tyrion, Bronn, Samwell and Davos being his council though. Tyrion is really lucky to be alive. Jaime and Cersei managed to make a brief post death appearance lol. Jon's reunion with Ghost was sweet. Sansa, Jon and Arya all got solid endings. The remaining Starks did come off well from this last episode. Nice appearances from some forgotten characters as well. Too bad we'll never get to know the new Dorne Prince though. It wasn't a perfect series finale but no way does it deserve to be any worst lists either, 7/10

    S04.E15: Terms Of Service

    I do like Gary, but after this episode there needs to be some consequences for his actions for what he subjected the Legends to, regardless of how they've treated him and so on. Both Nora and John got played a bit too easily in this episode. John should've seen that Astra wouldn't want to be rescued by him and I don't blame him for choosing her over Ray given that he did try to save both of them. Then there was Nora getting tricked by Tabitha into becoming a fairy godmother. Nora being sent to hell though will probably work in saving the day for next week. I want to know all about that garden gnome though. Zari's younger self getting to see a dragon hatch was a good ending for the episode. Liked Zari and Charlie's team up in this one, 8/10

    S08.E05: The Bells

    Damn it, show. Even if it was "foreshadowed" with Dany, the way in which the series has conveyed her descent into madness and tyranny should've been so much better written and handled than this. Watching her use Drogon to sack King's Landing even after they surrendered was brutal and seemed to go on forever. There's no way she's going to able to keep that throne by the time we get to the series finale. Jon has a decision to make and pretty fast before Arya makes it for him. Where the hell did that white horse appear out of? Loved Arya's final scene with the Hound and Tyrion's with Jaime as well. I'm not mad with the way Jaime and Cersei's story ended and to the episode's credit, it did end Varys, Euron, Qyburn, the Cleaganes stories well enough I guess. Still though the destruction of Dany's character, damn it. 7/10

    S04.E14: Nip/Stuck

    A Constantine heavy episode as we lead into the finale. Works for me. Nice to see Matt Ryan getting to play two roles in this episode with his ancestor as well as a chance to give him a dodgy wig. Every scene with Constantine, his ancestor, Neron and the Pooka were the highlights of the episode. Constantine going to hell felt inevitable but it could work out in his favour and bring about Neron's downfall. Fairy Godmother being Tabitha was a bit of a surprise but it was nice enough twist though. Liked the scenes with the gang working together with Ray's cards and the Time Bureau stuff with Mona, Nora, Ava and Evil Gary worked pretty well too. Can't wait to see how the last two episodes wrap up the Neron story, 8/10

    S08.E04: The Last of the Starks

    Damn, that hurt. Poor Missandei but let her death be the last serious misdeed that Cersei gets away with before the show ends. I think Tyrion has paved the way for Euron to turn on Cersei with his little speech about children. Euron also can't die quick enough as far as I'm concerned. Protect Drogon and Ghost at all costs. Jaime and Brienne, everything was telegraphed with them. Same with Arya, Gendry and the Hound, though not a bad thing in the latter case. Dany really could become another Mad Queen and Tyrion/Varys conspiring can only backfire on them. Sansa has a right to express doubt over Dany/Jon but even I felt a little bad for Dany in this one, not to mention Grey Worm. Like last week, I'm not sure this episode needed the extra time but at least it wasn't bloody dark to watch though. 8/10

    S04.E13: Egg MacGuffin

    An okay episode but the last few minutes really ramped things up. Gary snapping and joining Neron made actual sense though. Right now, Neron has Ray as a host, Gary as an accomplice and Constantine as a hostage I guess. The team are a little bit screwed for now. Constantine showed up at the last minute and failed. Nora is awake from her coma, so I'm guessing she'll be the one to actually save Ray within the next few episodes. The book club bit was amusing only for Sara to get really into the book and Ava to be the one to tell her that it's not really much of a book club. Mona annoyed me during the Mick/Charlie subplot by being one of those type of fans at a convention. Nice to see Mick get more of a plot this week. Nate and Zari, it could be handled better but it doesn't bother me now. Ooh, a dragon egg, 7/10

    S08.E03: The Long Night

    This episode did not need to be 80 minutes and the scenes were too dark and that came across as a bit of a self indulgent direction choice but other than that, I did actually enjoy the episode. Lyanna, Jorah, Theon, Edd, Melisandre and Beric all got a variety of interesting and different deaths, though Melisandre's did feel a little anticlimactic. Then again, Davos really did want his revenge. Arya being the one to kill the Night King was fine by me though I can see why some were disappointed that Jon didn't get the chance. It'll be interesting to see how Dany handles things now that the main battle is over and done with. Bran was useless throughout the episode and I'm really glad we got Jaime/Brienne working together along with the Sansa and Tyrion scenes. The last three episode are going to be intense to watch, 8/10

    S05.E12: The Beginning...

    Well this show ended as busy and as madcap as it began. I made a note of rewatching the pilot episode before watching this to be honest. What we got were snapshots of things to come with the final shot of Batman and you can tell that David's face was digitally added at the last minute. Bye Ecco, you were too dumb to live but the next woman to get involved with Jeremiah will get the character growth off screen that you didn't get on screen. Jeremiah taking Barbara Lee to Ace Chemicals to taunt Jim before meeting Batman, I can see the logic behind that. I take it Jeremiah did recognise who Batman was though. The Catwoman costume needed some ears or a visor that would've worked as ears but overall looked okay. The recast was fine and I did like the BatCat rooftop scene as well. Penguin and Riddler's reunion was lovely along with their individual plans for revenge and recognition being too easily scuppered at times. I'm fine with Jim not having a mustache and I liked Barbara having longer hair in this one, even if it did look very Poison Ivy at times. Nice little scenes with Bullock, Alfred, Leslie, Lucious, Harper and Alvarez in this one too. The last shot of Batman and the symbol in the last title card was great. I'm going to miss this show but they were right to end it here, 9/10
  10. Okay, so that golden egg seems important then. I guess Ray as Neron is either holding John captive or forcing him to into helping him.

    S04.E12: The Eggplant, The Witch & The Wardrobe

    Strongest episode since the show's return. Ava's purgatory being an IKEA makes sense for her character and while the analogies with her and Sara were predictable, they were also executed rather well too. Nice to see the two of them on side again. Loved the Constantine and Nora team up against Neron and it's great that Desmond is alive, even if he's mad at John. Ray getting taken over by Neron should be interesting for the next few episodes. I wonder who will end up being Tabitha's vessel now. Nora probably. The amusement park bit, still keen not on and the Zari/Nate romance plot did feel a bit cartoonish this week with the love advice bits from Mona, Charlie and Mick, 8/10

    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    The episode started slow at first but it grew into one of the best episodes of the season. So many character moments really elevated this one. I think we're being made to question Dany's right to the throne and rightly so. Everyone is questioning or challenging her authority in various ways and her inability to yield or look at things from another perspective will be her undoing if she's not careful. I was on Sansa's side during their scene together and it'll be interesting to see how Dany handles the revelation about Jon's claim to the throne after their battle with the Night King is done. Jaime had some incredible scenes with the Starks, Dany, Tyrion and Brienne in this episode. The knighting scene with Brienne was the obvious highlight for me as well as everyone cheering Brienne on. Arya and Gendry are one of the few gentle relationships on the show. I thought the show did well with that particular scene. I don't see why it would generate any real criticism. There are obviously going to be so many deaths in the next episode to make up for the lack of deaths we've had in the first two episodes. I can't get either version of Jenny of Oldstones out of my head. Thanks Podrick and Florence, 9/10

    S05.E11: They Did What?

    That almost could've been a series finale but I am still glad we have one more episode left to go. While both Nyssa and Bane should've been better villains than they were, I'm glad they survived the day. I am glad that Barbara survived too and the baby was named after all three of her parents. Barbara and Lee had some good moments as well. There were a lot of great character bits here - Jim/Lee/Barbara, Bruce/Selina, Bruce/Alfred, Edward/Oswald to name to a few of them. Next week's series finale really does look like the pilot episode of a Batman series we won't get to see play out, 8/10

    S04.E11: Séance & Sensibility

    I liked this one more than the previous two episodes. The musical number and mashing together both Bollywood and Jane Austen worked pretty well in my opinion. They're going there with Zari and Nate and maybe it'll be fine but I did think she had more chemistry with Sanjay than Nate though. Charlie really is just down for whatever craziness happens and I love that about the character. Mona is slightly improving as a character but the Wolfie look is bloody awful. Sara having sex dreams of Ava while Ray and Nora were barely able to fight their own attraction to each other. They really did a heel turn on Hank in order to make Neron the bigger bad. I'm fine with that. I did like the last scene with Constantine and Neron. 8/10

    Now Apocalypse

    Watched the first two episodes so far and it's stupid fun. Not the greatest show out there by any stretch but fun enough with a likeable (if reckless) enough protagonist in Ulysses but the ratings don't seem to be the greatest for this one. Have Starz renewed it for a second season?
