favorite scene from the finale

“I think it’s actually like what Eurus says - the emotional turmoil is actually worse that gore. We wouldn’t want to do that anyway. Particularly the scene with Molly is really a gut…really puts you through the wringer. And, actually, nothing happens except a ticking clock and he [Sherlock] has to say something he can’t - she [Molly] has to say something she can bring herself to say and he can’t bring himself to say and it’s really powerful. And, that’s the way to do it.”

Mark Gatiss on The Final Problem

“I’ll tell you what’s interesting about that scene is it was a completely different scene. It was a completely different scene there. And two people liked it and that was me and Mark, and absolutely everybody else hated it. And we kept saying ‘no, it’s good’ against a title wave of ‘we don’t like this scene.’  And, on the very last day we spent writing this episode we looked at each other and said, ‘Look, you know what, everyone thinks this is shit, except you and me. Let’s just go to our office and think of something else.’  So, we did. And, it was just written in the morning and we came out saying ‘That is the BEST SCENE in the episode!!!’ We always said the other one was flawed.”  Steven Moffat

“Sherlock finally understands he’s stronger and smarter than Mycroft, in a way. Not because he actually is smarter, because he is less smart, but because he is, uh, his emotions, his connections to other human beings, um, the wisdom he’s gained from the connections he has gained in the world make him stronger. He sees that partly because of the extreme of Eurus, who has no connection to anything. He’s just pure brain, not understanding anything of what it is to be human, makes him realize that everything he has worked towards, everything he has tried to step away from himself and tried to deny about himself, is what makes him the strongest one. He isn’t as smart as Eurus. He isn’t as smart as Mycroft. He’s just always going to win against them because he is better and stronger and that it him becoming the Sherlock Holmes of Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett. The one we’re used to. The wise old man of Baker St. Who’s still terrifying and still cold, but has a heart you never doubt.” Steven Moffat

My favorite scene in Young Justice will always be from Alpha Male, when Kaldur finally gets fed up with the team acting like children and just tells them to shut up and listen to him while they’re fighting evil.  The look on everyone’s face said it all, like even telepathically they didn’t know Kaldur could get that loud outside of a fight.  Sort of like the first time a good babysitter has to raise their voice because the kids are just being too bratty

The confrontation between Benvolio and Escalus is my second favorite scene from the finale (after The Kiss) because of all it establishes about Benvolio’s devotion to Rosaline and the strength of their bond, but I was also thinking about how that interaction affected both men’s actions and mindsets afterward in significant ways. Escalus was the most visibly taken aback by their conversation, and we see how it later influenced his decision to save Benvolio and actually believe in Rosaline’s word. But I think Benvolio also gained some insight about the lengths Rosaline was willing to go on his behalf. He realized that her pleading his case could have long-lasting consequences even after he’s been executed, and so I think that’s what motivated him tell Rosaline she should let him go; that she shouldn’t burden herself (in his view) with helping him. And that, of course, was what sparked that epically open moment between them.

That confrontation was a turning point for both characters: Escalus received a wake-up call about how he was failing Rosaline, and Benvolio learned of the depth of her commitment to him and wanted to make sure the points Escalus brought up wouldn’t come to fruition. That scene was the catalyst for their biggest moments in the episode, and it was just so good.

a few highlights from the turn panel:

  • alexander rose asking (and i’m paraphrasing on this one), “what self-respecting actor would really want to wear those wigs?” was priceless. nick was first to respond with, “no one.” ian followed with, “everyone.”
  • ian still has that wig, too. they joked it’s under his bed now.
  • when alex began asking the actors questions, he had to decide in which order they should go. they decided rank, but he still had to muse, “i could go with heather first. ladies first and all.” he paused, considered profusely… annnd carried on with ian. 
  • they did mention the music featured on the show, but nothing of the releasing soundtracks, only how they went about choosing. that said, they were playing full tracks from the first three seasons before the panel began.
  • “love is patient, love is kind.” it was this verse, heather said, which was her inspiration for anna strong.
  • nick’s favorite scene was the rob/arnold moment from the season 3 finale. he thought it was beautifully written and exciting, knowing how robert would be risking his life once more.
  • ROBERT WILL EXPRESS HIS MOTIVES THIS SEASON. nick was excited for this, and rightfully so. 
  • nick also went on to say rob has some of his best scenes this season with with james rivington and abraham woodhull. ngl, my heart soared.
  • alex posed the question of, if we were living in a alt universe where turn got another season, what would it be? of course a musical came up, thanks to hamilton, and someone pitched jamie’s dancing. nick was all nods and grins to that, then pitched his own: a buddy comedy. “like cheers, but with james and robert. he gives one-liners and robert grunts.”

There it is, my favorite scene from the manga finally animated. I always felt a connection to Sasha, what with her being kinda clumsy and with her determination to be polite in order to hide something about herself, but I remember reading this monologue and taking it not only as a straightforward advice from Sasha to the shocked kid, but also as a metaphor. Sasha has been afraid of befriending people her whole life; she doesn’t like people, and she’s a loner. Yet, in the 104th, she found both people who would call her out for her actions (Ymir) and people willing to accept her as she was (Historia).

She found friends, and even if I’m not into SNK as I was years ago, I’ll always be emotional about this.
