So….I have to say, I’m just really happy about this. I know there’s a lot of the “it was never really Lovelace anyway” hype, but honestly? I’d rather have it this way. One of my closest childhood friends spend our entire childhoods calling me an impostor and pretending like I was a copy of “the actual person” and asking where “the real one was,” but after all those years she said to me one day that even though I wasn’t “the real one” she preferred me to the other she’d been elevating for all of those years. And that meant a lot.
And really, that’s how I feel about Isabel Lovelace. She might not be “the original one,” she might “be just an alien with no doubt nefarious purposes,” but she’s still the one we know. The same brave, smart, sassy Lovelace we know and love. Might she have been copying OriginalLovelace’s personality? Maybe. But…if her mission was to bugger off to Earth the first chance she took for whatever reason, she had her chance. She still took that injury to protect Minkowski. She still turned around from the space craft to donate blood to a dying Eiffel. (And what effects might that blood have on Eiffel…??)
She was miserable when Eiffel was presumed dead. Guilty. She still took that bullet for Eiffel (which still counts even if she knew she would be able to come back to life). She chose them as her people, and no matter who she “really is,” she still did all of those things when she didn’t have to. She cares. And whatever she was pretending or falsifying….she’s still our Lovelace. So she’s not the Original…but she’s ours. She doesn’t need to be “the real one.” She’s all we’ve known and loved, and she’s back. And that, I believe, is call for great celebration!
Eiffel wishing (hoping) that someone as bad as Hilbert, someone who’d ruined as many lives as he had, could still come back from the dark side… HE WASN’T TALKING ABOUT HILBERT. AND NOW I’M CRYING AGAIN.
Performed By Conductor Adam Fischer And The Hungarian State Orchestra
Boléro became Ravel’s most famous composition, much to the surprise of the composer, who had predicted that most orchestras would refuse to play it. It is usually played as a purely orchestral work, only rarely being staged as a ballet. According to a possibly apocryphal story from the premiere performance, a woman was heard shouting that Ravel was mad. When told about this, Ravel is said to have remarked that she had understood the piece. 😊
In the episode released on Christmas day, the crew of the Hephaestus is visited by three ghosts. Lovelace reminds Minkowski of her past failures, Maxwell addresses Hera’s confusion about how to live in her new present, and Hilbert reminds Eiffel of the worst-case scenario for his own future.
The Death of Isabel Lovelace: A Poem in Three Parts
death comes not with his scythe and robe and bones
death is not cold
instead, death burns like fire into your quiet sleep,
roaring with solar wind
as the ice around you evaporates instantly.
it scalds your skin,
before the heat melts it off your bones.
there’s no time for last thoughts
just enough to scream
(mindless, an animal noise from your human mouth).
then you are reborn.
death comes not on wings of night and shadow
gliding towards you in silence
(like you deserve).
instead it rides on the sonic boom of a bullet
burrowing into your skull
too fast to see
and your last thought
(because now there is time, now you are not asleep)
(you have had time to prepare),
your last thought is,
“could it really have happened any other way?”
then you are reborn again.
you are reborn again, and you see their faces
the disgust and fear twisting their features
the revulsion that makes them grit their teeth
and avoid your eyes
(you note that there are fewer of them than there were before)
you see them
and all their fear
and you wonder,
“how long will it be before death comes again?”
WELP… season 3 ended, we got clousure to the most dramatic event this series has had… and then 2 minutes of scream between “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH”, “I KNEW IT!” and “DO NOT END THE EPISODE THERE YOU PIECES OF…” so anyway time for my thoughts under the cut due to spoilers and the like:
