I actually kinda liked that episode...

Capaldi’s acting was fantastic, and the writing wasn’t too bad. What was good was that they explored the whole meaning of identity thing, Theseus’ paradox and all that.

Before DW seemed to be about confusing storylines and who can talk the fastest and sound the cleverest, but things seem to be coming together now…

It’s like when you watch a Star Trek episode and learn something from it; we need to inject more of that philosophical material into Doctor Who.

Also the awesomeness that is the Vastra and Jenny power couple.

And just, Madame Vastra’s line: “You might as well flirt with a mountain range” just really puts what The Doctor actually is into perspective. I really agree with this line of thinking, and exactly why I believe that shipping The Doctor with a human is, well, a tad nonsensical (Sorry Ten/Rose fans.)

This doesn’t mean I think The Doctor can’t love, or care about humans, it just means that for a human to truly connect emotionally or mentally with him is nigh on impossible.

Just my two pence.

“GUYS! CUT THE OVERHYPED PRE MANSEX/MASSIVE DUMP-TAKING GROANS AND LET’S GO. WE HAVE FUCKING WORK TO DO. GOD.” - Zhao Yun

I’ve never been more happier to see him at this point in the story.

Can someone explain to me Jin’s historical route? I tried to make it a hypothetical, but it didn’t quite work out.

I know Jia Chong is trying to push Sima Zhao into something, but I’m not quite sure what it is, if I knew it, I’ve lost it. And the ending, they were just staring at each other. Someone mind explaining what exactly happened?

While I was iffy about KOEI adding the Guans, Fan Castle is really already looking better. The cutscene with Guan Yu narrating and looking at his children, there’s something about his expression that’s just so powerful and a bit sad. Like he’s a proud dad through and through but….ugh. ;w; Papa Yu

I don’t care if you get all the hate because Shu junk, I love you even more now you’re amazing okay

SHAKING AND CRYING

not really

but SGHSDFGJKHDSFKGJHKJHKJ XU SHU BBY YOU’RE BACK IN SHU

from what I saw, he actually was wearing Wei colors during the battle of Chibi, but was NOT attacking Zhao Yun (or Zhuge Liang or Liu Bei since they’re the other two options). Zhao Yun more than likely asks Xu Shu to come back with them, and we get this scene.

My verdict so far is that the Wu side of Chibi is the better side by proxy. It’s really a highlight of Huang Gai and there’s no way KOEI would take that and add it to Shu highlights.
