Okay, so I just watched the episode and it wasn’t bad. Oddly enough, I actually really liked it. Obviously, the Bilquis stuff was on point. But you probably already knew that though, right? I’m sure something may have given that away. Yetide Badaki is amazing! She knows how to do a lot with a little, and I’m so proud because this makes me want to know more about Bilquis. It makes me want to know what it is that the New Gods want from her. I just hope she gets a chance to be fleshed out more in S2 like some of the other tertiary characters have been. And I really liked Easter. I gravitate towards bubbly characters more often than not; they’re a weakness of mine, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Kristin was absolutely perfect for this role.
I’m trying to figure out what the fuck happened in the middle of the season though. It started off strong and it ended strong, but those middle episodes were .. enough to make me quit. Those middle episodes weren’t compelling at all. Here’s to hoping S2 is a lot like the beginning and the end of this season, because those episodes work. They just do. When the show revolves around different characters in the ensemble cast and not just the same ones, it’s more enjoyable.
