I love how in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them soundtrack, one of them is entitled “Newt Says Goodbye to Tina.” It starts out a bit sad and slow, but then it becomes kinda upbeat? I don’t know how to properly describe it, but I think that it reflects the scene at the harbor. Newt and Tina know that something about their relationship has changed, but before they could figure out what it is, here they are having to part ways. Add to that the issue with Leta Lestrange. However, Newt tells Tina that he’s changed, and he touches her hair and asks her how she would feel if he gave her a copy of his book in person. And then we see Tina leaving with a playful skip to her steps. I don’t know about you, but I think their relationship is so precious, and I want to see more of it.
So in the new Avengers Assemble episode (3x21) among other stuff that happened (Hulk getting collared and becoming a hobo for one), Steve most definitely flirted with Tony! OK? I have no other explanation for the scene in which Tony’s like: “I don’t like Red Hulk, he’s a maniac, I don’t wanna work with him…” and Steve smiles at him and says “You know, I thought you were a maniac when I first met you.” And he alsotouches him, full hand on shoulder touch action! And Tony’s like (thinking) “Ok, I’m not quitting the Avengers. God why you have to be so cute, ugh…” and just follows Steve like a good half of a battle couple.
Okay. The scenes with Len and Jasper, pre-breakup was so cute! I was literally squealing as I watched it. Jasper, Eleanor and Sarah Alice are literally family goals. Ugh I hate Jasper’s father. I love that Jasper was willing to give up his only chance of happiness to make sure that Len wasn’t made to be in a different light. I almost started crying when Jasper was talking to his father and said “you don’t know what you just cost me.” I firmly believe that Sarah Alice or James is going to give Lenny that story book and tell her that Jasper only broke up with her to protect her. You could see when Jasper was hugging Sarah Alice, he was trying so damn hard not to break down and not worry Sarah Alice. I really hope that Len and Jasper figure things out and get back together. I also hope that Jasper tells Len why he did what he did. Here’s hoping next week is a bit better.
BITS AND PIECES OF SUPERGIRL 210 THAT I LOVED OR HAD FEELINGS ABOUT – a list compiled by me
i loved a lot of things, which was a massive plot twist even to myself.
UGH SPACE FAM <3
SPACE DAD AND HIS CRIME FIGHTING DAUGHTERS <3
“to be your friend” ;________;
“i’m here with you, i see you” ;_______;
(enjoy your new space mom, girls)
(SHARON LEAL IS TOO GOOD FOR THIS SHOW. THAT SCENE WAS TERRIBLE AND SHE MADE IT GOLD. I CRIED, YOU GUYS. ACTUAL TEARS.)
KARA DANVERS, CATCO MAGAZINE.
“like having a deadly penpal you see once a year.”
only kara would find having a nemesis cute, and then… follow through on it kind of being cute. it was weird, and totally bonkers, but entirely consistent for kara. “you did this one good thing so you get a gold star and a chance to escape!”
KARA LIKES HAVING A NEMESIS OKAY, THAT’S KIND OF ADORABLE.
“that was nice of you. stupid, but nice.”
“i will punish him for you”
KARA HONEY. your heart is in the right place.
and i forgive her because leslie was on fire this episode:
“this is copyright infringement asshat. i’m going to sue you, and then i’m going to murder you.”
“your cosplay sucks.”
“you know what i love? little boys who think they can do a better job than the woman who’s an actual superhero. it’s pathetic.”
this was fucking hilarious, but also true.
but i also think it was supposed to be the mission statement of the episode, which they totally failed on with james and winn. i don’t want them to quit, which is a total turn around from how i’ve felt about this storyline all season. they can’t have us believe mon-el is doing this for the wrong reasons, set james’ motives up as the right ones as a contrast, and then still want us to believe he shouldn’t be doing it. i don’t think that anymore, which leaves unanswered: why does kara think they shouldn’t be doing this? that they’re putting themselves in danger doesn’t cut it for me. no one at the DEO has powers and she happily works with them. her own sister is the one on the front line with her more often than note (side note: NOTABLY ABSENT THIS EPISODE WHEN SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FRONT AND CENTER and tbh that’s how you know kara’s position is false because okay this is not a side note this is important we’re leaving this parenthetical behind– alex proves kara doesn’t actually feel this way, and they had to sideline her so it wasn’t glaringly obvious (or bad writing but you can’t change what you’re given to work with okay)
WHY DOESN’T SHE WANT THEM DOING THIS?
WHAT IS KARA’S DEAL?
i have some theories. i’m not saying they’re doing this well if it is what they are doing, but there were two shots in this episode that screamed something that i’ve felt they’ve been trying to set up all season long: KARA IS SO ALONE RIGHT NOW.
and we got kara as supergirl standing alone in the middle of the DEO, and kara as kara sitting alone without her glasses on in the middle of her apartment.
cat’s gone. clark stopped in for a second and then bailed. alex has her own stuff going on. james didn’t revert back to friend!james, he basically disappeared from her life. winn is working at the DEO but the superfriends are completely over.
and yes some of that is her own doing LOOKING AT YOU, JAMES, I’M SO SORRY BUDDY.
every scene where he talked about mon-el like he hadn’t been cast aside for that dude in kara’s life HURT ME.
but it makes the whole mon-el thing… slightly more weighty.
because okay i was going to save this for later but kara to me in that scene where she confronted him about why he was doing this looked hurt. because in the absence of anyone else, mon-el at least wanted to work with her on this path she’s chosen. everyone is off doing their own thing and he wanted to do her thing. and then it turned out he just wanted to do her. that’s not a team mate.
and her sad, sad face at the end knew she’d lost him as a team mate too. :(
so back to winn and james. them being out there without her is more dangerous than being out there with her. but remember how she learnt a small lesson earlier this season about her path not always being the right path?
(side note to say i wasn’t a fan of what i think was an accidental implication that powers are what make them powerful when she shut down james and then turned to leslie. if that’s something they were going for then this show is fucking lost. but i don’t think it was.
“you two were heroes to me way before all this.”)
and how everyone else is off on their own paths at the moment?
last week kara worked out what kind of reporter she wants to be. and this week we saw her having a little adventure with that and then getting completely sidetracked by her nemesis, but if wishes were horses the way this is going is kara realising she has to step out of everyone’s shadow and cast her own. that everyone’s shadow is slowly drifting away from her. supergirl is an ideal, according to cat, but kara has to live inside that ideal and i don’t think she’s ever put any thought into her actual purpose.
maybe now she will?
(it’s there, there is good stuff in this season but god the execution is just appalling and making me sad.)
ALL THE OTHER STUFF:
THEY DIDN’T EVEN HAVE CAT IN THE PREVIOUSLIES. OUTRAGE.
MAGGIE AND ALEX BETTING ON KARA. SHARED BB SISTER.
MAGGIE IS A VEGAN. thank you cliche.
i love winn so much these days, who even am i?
he called siobahn leslie’s girlfriend!
“…and they are also maybe captured.”
j’onn and m’gann’s faint-and-catch was so OTT my eyes turned into hearts.
what is this arbitrary prison facility leslie was being kept in? wasn’t she locked up by the DEO?
kara asking the important questions - why was she in a human facility?
GUYS YOU’VE LOST CONTROL OF YOUR SHOW’S INTERNAL COHERENCE. REMEMBER WHEN ALIENS WERE A SECRET AND THE DEO WAS CAPTURING THEM ALL?
“i’m the other superman.” I LAUGHED. VERY HARD, I LAUGHED.
AND NOW A REENACTMENT OF MY THOUGHTS DURING THAT LAST SCENE:
oh no he’s waiting for her and there is music.
SHE’S NOT INTO THIS.
THIS ISN’T GOING WHERE THE MUSIC SAYS IT’S GOING.
WE ARE BEING PLAAAAYED OH MY GOD IT’S OVER AND IT DID NOT HAPPEN OH MY GOD.
(this is either the worst romantic setup in the history of television, yes including every terrible example you are currently thinking of (maybe), oooooooooor they are geniuses and this is possibly the first case of straightbaiting in this post-UST era. PLEASE BE THE LATTER, PLEASE BE THE LATTER.)
