  1. When Beth first appeared I thought they should cut one of Alice's fingers off so that they could tell them apart. At least put a tracker in one of them because you know Alice is not going to be happy to have a luckier doppelgänger (even beyond the whole plot-driven melting-brain thing). I assume that we will run through the standard CW doppelgänger playbook, and that Beth's Boyfriend in her old universe is Sophie's husband in this one.
  2. Garth: "What am I? A supporting character?" (paraphrased) Me: "Comic relief."
  3. I thought the obvious solution was Chainsaw-Bear-Mondays. There's nothing like the threat of a little evisceration to sharpen your wits and make you appreciate your first milkshake on Tuesday. But seriously, read "Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven" for Mark Twain's take on the problem of an acceptable afterlife.
  4. I really felt sorry for the Anti-Monitor. He gets sucked into a universe where he can't interact with anything and apparently spends 13 billion years stuck in that wasteland with a bunch of CGI Dementors (who probably aren't great conversationalists "whoooOOOooooo"). The Monitor was a jerk and the Anti-Monitor became a jerk with a chip on his shoulder. If they had just sent him back to his anti-matter universe everyone would have been happy. If only someone had the ability to travel in time.
  5. Jason isn't limited by reality because he doesn't understand it. He is very creative, and he just blurts whatever is passing through in his stream of semi-consciousness. You shouldn't arbitrarily dismiss his ideas because he occasionally hits a homerun from the dugout.
  6. Does anyone know why Osric Chau was called Ryan Choi instead of Alternate! Kevin Tran? Supernatural has alternate universes, including Earth negative-several-zillion, where the brothers are stars on a cheesy TV show, Also, why did no one say, "Would you rather hug your wife and child while they die, or try to save them?" CWverse motivation often boils down to, "you should do this because my life sucks too". I'm pretty sure that the ending to this crossover will be Ashton Kutcher awaklening John Cryer on "the couch" and telling him that he was having a bad (or good!) dream. That, or obvious time-travel shenanigans.
  7. "And then the true meaning of [Dean's blood] came through, and the Grinch found the strength of ten Grinches plus two." With apologies to Theodor Geisel.
  8. I blame the writers. The "Rifle!" could have shot Batwoman with a tear gas bullet (United States Patent 2920566), cut his feet free, and escaped. Instead, he escaped because the heroes were being stupid. Plot driven stupidity is a hallmark of bad writing. Nuanced handling of adult relationships is difficult for competent writers so I wouldn't expect to see it here. The CW's shows are targeted at teens, so most relationships are fumbled and most parents are either clueless, jerks, or dead (and often all three). I did like Kate's reaction to Mary's mention of their parents divorce. I could see she was thinking, "What? There's a B plot? Isn't my drama enough for this show?".
  9. Batman would have brought a gas mask if he knew he was dealing with poison gas. That is how you become a superhero without superpowers. It would be nice if the writers were at least able to simulate competence in their heroes. I guess you can't really imagine things you don't understand.
  10. RE: the deer skull. Shouldn't the antlers have tipped someone off? Kate, don't let your crazy sister set the agenda. She is apparently smarter than you and she plans ahead. I'm assuming that Ruby is intentionally playing Kate as wooden and emotionally closed-off. That would fit the stoic/loner/warrior archetype.
  11. So let me see if I've got this straight. Belphegor absorbs half the escaped souls then mouses into the empty beardy daemon meatsack so that Cas thinks he (and the first trump) are baked. Then Rowena absorbs the other half of the souls and makes a dramatic exit to join up with Belphegor in hell. I've heard that souls are power once or twice. I guess we'll never know what might have happened since they are both dead. I mean you can't come back once you’re dead, right?
  12. Jacob Kane: (hearing cello music on the phone) "Who's this?" Me: (leaning forward) "Bach!!" He really isn't much of a detective.
  13. I had a similar preoccupation in high school. (Full disclaimer: an appreciation of frilly dresses does not always equal the desire to wear one ... sorry.)
  14. When I first saw Hope I thought, "Hourglass figure! That's CW's preference for female villains".
  15. My headcannon is that they are bipaternal.
