I have a lot of criticisms about this episode on the basis of writing- some of these criticisms span into overarching qualms I have over the lazy writing devices they’ve put into work this entire arc, which has made all of season four suffer in narrative quality. Others just don’t make sense to me in this single episode- what exactly, for example, was so shocking about this episode? and why all the build up and reluctance in terms of a specific potential reveal just to give us a non-answer? why the last scene, which didn’t follow the beat structure of this episode in the way it should’ve?
But I will say this:
- the scenes were brilliantly done, immensely well written, beautifully orchestrated, and i completely understand why Luke would consider that the best writing of the season
- Madi was a goddess amongst men in this episode. she is absolute proof that the women of this show are fucking amazing and i wanna marry her now, my dudes
- Flint and Silver looked handsome af during those scenes, fam lmao
