ONE OF THE BEST PARTS IS THAT THE PURE SMILE HE MAKES IN THE FIRST BLESSED IMAGE

IS BECAUSE HE SAW A BIG FISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND HIS BROTHERS ARE HAPPY SEEING HIM HAPPY AND IT HURTS ME BECAUSE THIS EPISODE IS REALLY PURE FOR THE MOST PART

You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.

Okay so I actually finished watching the episode and wow it was good. Probably my new favorite episode this season (bar the lack of Alex and Maggie). Because lets really talk about it

  • Lena and Kara’s friendship! It’s just so pure and good. There was a bunch of healthy communication about Jack (except of course when Lena lies about going to see Jack which was no bueno but also expected as fuck. And anyone trying to compare that to M*n-El lying about being the Prince of Daxam needs to step off). 
  • Lena’s backstory. While I wish they had left Lena’s sexuality more ambiguous, I don’t think this dictates that she’s certainly straight. Rather Jack was (probably) her first love and I think everyone who has been in love knows that you always have feelings for your first love, even if they’re messy and complicated. It’s not as black and white as people make it out to be. 
  • Lena’s moral leanings. I’ve always been a proponent of anti-hero or morally gray Lena. I think at heart, she has the same general goals as Supergirl, helping people. But Lena and Kara have vastly different ways to go about it. Lena is more underhanded and sneaky about getting what she wants. Which is often connotated with being evil. Something that should be noted about that couch scene is that Lena acknowledged what she was feeling wasn’t good. And that she was going to be scared of what she could turn into. I think that’s a certain sign that she doesn’t want to be evil. But grief can make people do odd things. I will be interested to see if they take this in an H.G Wells/Warehouse 13 sort of direction. We know H.G was generally a good character that struggled with grief and her past and did some bad things before Myka eventually stopped her through their relationship. I hope that if they are going to play through this game of Lena being evil, it will be more akin to that arc, rather than just flat out evil. It would be far more interesting and compelling. 
  • Jack Spheer. I’m actually kind of okay with his character. He obviously made Lena happy. And ultimately, I just want my poor smol child to have happiness, even if it isn’t with Kara (though it should fucking be). He had good intentions but bitch Beth Breen had to step in and be evil. I’m also glad they didn’t make him evil per say, rather mind controlled, which I suspected was going to be the case. Since they floated Beth’s name once and then didn’t really bring it up again, rather pushing Jack Spheer. I also am glad they didn’t make the racial minority guest actor the bad guy. So overall, I think Rahul was certainly right about his character in terms of his role in the Kara/Lena dynamic as well as his impact on the episode in general and Rahul deserves kudos from the Supergirl fandom for playing a great character. 
  • Mon-El was actually being helpful and supportive of Kara. Their relationship seemed more toned back and less forced. If their relationship was like that all the time, I wouldn’t mind Karamel actually. I wouldn’t ship it certainly, but I would be okay watching Mon-El/Kara on my screen. Unpopular opinion with both sides I’m sure, but it is what it is. 
  • James & Winn bromance. I’m glad James got some screentime, especially as Guardian and agreeing to bring Lyra in on everything, especially for his bro, Winn. It’s good to see James mature as a hero. I hope we start seeing him more. 

Basically I just really liked the episode and am wishing (but not getting my hopes up) that we’ll see more of this in the future. Because Rhea and Lena business deal sounds pretty ominous, especially if Rhea is playing on Lena’s grief over Jack. But we know Lena is strong in the face of manipulation and I just hope if she does become evil, that it’s a compelling storyline, and not because she’s grieving over Jack and Rhea offers her a way out. 

Anyway, I have a lot more feelings about this, these were just the ones off the top of my head.

Yeah I loved how the earlier seasons revolved around Ali's disappearance. The flashbacks etc were amazing. And it created so much mystery. But when she came back it didn't feel right. The liars had changed and I don't think her character fits with them anymore. So I'm really hoping A.D. isn't another reveal which is Ali based.

Yeah you’ve explained that really well. Ali still, 2.5 seasons after her return from the dead, doesn’t fit in. I STILL see her as the outsider to the group. When I think of PLL at its roots, I think of the 4 girls lying on the dirt with Aria doing the shhhh. I just still don’t picture Ali as a natural fit to the group. And a part of this is because of how TERRIBLY they handled her return. In flashbacks she was the devil in disguise and then she comes back, instantaneously a saint? What happened? Why the change? I dunno. I just really liked the episode because Ali wasn’t in it. It felt great. I kind of feel bad saying this given my love for Sasha but this has nothing to do with her and her amazing acting abilities - it’s just about the character she plays.

And actually, I hope she IS AD! Not only will Sasha slay it but it’ll make up for the boringness of her character (amongst other things like how much it’ll make sense, the evident clues, etc)

Can we talk about he samurai jack s1 finale where Aku tries to connect with the youth by telling them stories and inserting himself into the narratives as the hero and jack as the Collin and all the kids were like “that? Doesn’t make sense?? Jack wouldn’t do that wtf” and Aku’s plan just fails MISERABLY because the kids aren’t stupid and they k n o w jack is a good person. Idk I just really liked that episode. Also the part where Aku says little red riding hood has “GREAT FLAAAMING EYEBROWS”

I just watched Last One Out Of Beach City again (it played after Onion Gang on tv) and that episode is so pearlmethyst like dude
The new thing I noticed is that Pearl was doing the socializing-with-humans thing to impress Amethyst. I mean, it was mostly that up until the car ran out of gas, and then she started getting frustrated over not being how she used to be, but that’s a whole diff thing
“I already think you’re cool,” and Pearl being endeared was so cool and just. Yes.
I’m all for amethyst being protective and pearl liking it but needing to branch out for her own growth. I just really liked this episode okay

WHY I LOVED THIS EPISODE

Spoilers for 5.5

  • As much as I love Patsy I was delighted to see Delia doing something aside from her and being something other than “Patsy’s secret girlfriend”. I’ve always wanted Delia to train as a midwife, and she might now! Just thought she was excellent in that scene. Although there was nowhere near enough Patsy and Delia (especially Patsy) this episode.
  • The whole scene with the woman delivering her own baby whilst Delia talked her through it was fantastic, I don’t know I just really thought it was really something special.
  • I also really liked it when Patsy walked through when Delia just got off the phone and gave her that look of just being proud of her. Also she did that look when they were all clapping Delia around the table and having top banter. For the hundredth time (or fourth probably) everyone is really funny this series.
  • When Nurse Crane was telling the woman about her mother I was almost crying, but then again I cried at Deathly Hallows Part.2 on Friday night even though I’ve seen it countless times so maybe it’s just me.
  • Tim is the best I love him, he researches psychology like I do which was awesome to see, it’s also really nice to see someone almost my age being right and having their parents agree with them if that makes sense. Lots of the Turner family tonight! 
  • I just really liked this episode everything was great including Tim and Nurse Crane my all time favorites. Looking forward to next week where I’m assuming we’ll see more Patsy, Delia and more of the younger midwifes in general.
