Peter feels the most like DEAD LIKE ME’s Reggie of anything else in Fuller’s catalogue, and I do enjoy it (though I think the episode around it could have been stronger / fed off that energy better).

The first watch through I was really wondering how much She was manipulating him. Then I remember when I got to the end I had a polar opposite conclusion. Now on my first full rewatch since the show ended, I’m finding myself seeing how it could definitely go both ways as written, and Emerson’s cues are super, but of Read more

I’d like to imagine they wrote it in the script, and production just nixed it because of the absolutely bonkers prospect of having to clean up and reset glitter (and get it out of costumes! and wigs! and makeup! and equipment! and every crevasse imaginable!) between takes.

Between crossover duties and directing duties, Caity Lotz had more than enough going, so makes sense to have given her two episodes break in a row.

Holy wow, I hadn’t thought of the hemophilia angle! That would have been brilliant.

If they continue to work in / address the whole Ava-is-a-clone-and-some-emotions-are-still-short-circuiting bit this season, this take on Ava’s response works a lot better.

While Dinah has been iffy for me as well in various iterations / timelines / combinations-with-other-characters, I liked her here. She and Not-Laurel had a fun **** Moms vibe going, so I think it could work. Read more

This comment actually saves it for me. I was with some other commenters in not liking the ending, I just saw “oh no they’re going to have to try a clever ‘so funny it’s painful / so painful it’s funny’ gag at the end, the harder ending would be to just have him walk out, they’re going to go for a twist and cap off 20 Read more

I appreciate you answering this (and multiple other questions on this post), and the attention you paid, but it does drive home the point that, despite being painfully expository, so many pieces of the finale (and the arcs / plot points / devices in the last season) don’t really land.
