Oooohhh.......

Spoiler:
Kree Warriors!!! I heard these guys are badas….wait… Nevermind. Although I am kind of glad at how they did that. Turns out, the mysterious Kree artifact wasn’t the MacGuffin after all. Nice.

And I like Hive’s plan. There seems to be no way he can accomplish it on a mass scale, since he doesn’t have nearly enough Kree blood (even with what he got from the Kree warrior and what he can potentially get from Daisy). Still, he can probably create a good number of new Inhumans. With that, plus the existing Inhumans, he’d have enough to do some damage.

I’m glad they’re making the Fitz and Simmons relationship work (so far). Both of them are among my favorite characters.

I applaud Lincoln wanting to save Daisy, but he’s kind of an a%!~+#% about it.

I wasn’t happy about the reason the town was abandoned, but I wasn’t surprised. At least they kind of glossed over it, instead of shoving that crap in your face.

Poor Mack. It was sad to see him get that dose of reality to the heart from Daisy.

I’m excited to see how they’re going to resolve this season.

Well, at least now…

Spoiler:
We probably no longer have to wait to see how Wally and Jessie will get their powers. I have to wonder, however, how the writer’s will work around the fact that neither one of them had the chemicals in their system that Barry had – an acknowledged key ingredient to giving Barry his speed power. To me, it seems like they had it figured out – the wave of Dark Matter hit Barry and seemed to change color (or my eyes were playing tricks on me) before flowing out to eventually hit both of them. So maybe Barry’s body sort of catalyzed the energy, changing it into something that could impart the same (or similar) powers to Jessie and Wally. I hope they at least mention something along those lines.

So….a supervillain takes over an entire city, kills a bunch of police officers on camera, and…nothing from the outside world? I mean, I understand that this is all about The Flash, but this nothing response kind of defies reality a bit too much.

At least the writer’s had Barry channel their inner stupidity about having him surrender his powers in the first place.

Also, seems to me, the Barry I thought I knew wouldn’t have hesitated for one second about risking his own life to get his powers back so he could save innocent people.

Rupture was kind of lame.

When the hell is Cisco going to start learning to use his powers the way his evil counterpart did. If he were doing that, he and a powered Flash could probably have whupped Zoom together, the way Deathstorm and Evil Cisco did to the Flash over on Earth 2.

Please don’t tell me they’re going to go the route of Earth1 Caitlin turning evil after Zoom’s little speech. Some clichés are better left not done.

Next week’s episode is apparently directed by Kevin Smith. That could be cool. I kind of wish he’d start writing some titles for DC again. I still fondly remember his work on Green Arrow.

Are there any DC characters with Medusa- or gaze-like powers?

Off the top of my head, the only two I can think of are Psycho Pirate and Johnny Sorrow.

The second Pyscho Pirate had a Medusa Mask which was capable of projecting emotions onto people. So, in truth, it was the mask that had the power.

Johnny Sorry had been sucked into some kind of Lovecraftian dimension and returned transformed. After that, he had a mask which concealed his new, more monstrous face. This face could kill people who looked at it, if I recall correctly.

Gastell the Tamer is a half-elven ranger living in the wilds. Years ago, after spending several months being hunted and toyed with by a pack of wilderness-dwelling natural werewolves, he went mad. Developing an insane theory that werewolves could, like natural wolves, be domesticated, he began capturing lone werewolves and studying them. He also began studying alchemy, thinking it could hold the key to his eventual goal. His most current research is an attempt to develop an elixir that will reduce any intelligence in a transformed lycanthrope to more of an animal level, while at the same time making the creature more docile. He dwells on the edge of the woods, in a cabin built against a cliff. The cabin is built in front of a cave entrance, and he’s set up various cages within where he keeps his test subjects.

Woot! My favorite gothic horror show is back for round 3!!!

Spoiler:
Damn! Miss Ives really let herself go. It was almost sad to see her living that way. I like them bringing back Patti Lupone to play Dr. Seward. What a transformation! The scene between the two of them was really good. You could see a bit of the old Miss Ives shining beginning to re-emerge.

I was glad, though, to see Ferdinand Lyle return. That character is so awesomely flamboyant, yet badass. He and Ethan are my two favorites.

Speaking of Ethan – that was an interesting, and bloody development. Apparently, Daddy Talbot doesn’t see completely eye-to-eye with either his son or the law. Nice to see Hecate hanging around. She’s a definite hottie.

Sir Malcolm is, as always, a completely badass mofo. And Wes Studi’s introduction as Kaetenay was f*$*ing awesome! The scalping was brutal. It appears, however, that he is a genuine warrior against the darkness type. As Sir Malcolm was and shall be.

The scene with the Creature on the ice-trapped ship was brutal, yet poignant in its own way. Rory Kinnear continues to be amazing in his portrayal. Now that I think about it, I have to add him to my list of Ethan and Ferdinand as favorites.

Frankenstein and Jekyll – I was wondering where they were going with the casting of Jekyll, but as soon as they had Victor and Henry sitting down talking, it became clear, and clearly brilliant. It makes sense that someone from India would have that kind of prejudice against him during that time period. And that prejudice would have him be full of rage (as Victor notes that he was in the past). Very clever way to do things. Can’t wait to see where they go with it.

Finally – Dracula and Renfield!!!!

The Man in the Iron Mask could be Hunter's Dad. Or Jay Garrick.

That really needs to be cleared up by the end of the season. It's getting tedious. Mysteries are fun to speculate about but they should be advanced over the course of a story; in his case, we know no more than we did at his first appearance. He's still a guy in an iron mask, held by Zoom for unknown reasons. The one clue to his identity -- tapping out "JAY" in prison code -- gets us nowhere because it remains uncertain whether he was identifying himself or asking about someone else.

Did Barry not tell Caitlin about that? All the time she was in Zoom's lair, Iron Mask never managed to communicate a single word to her? Is he an idiot? Since she can see him, maybe he should just try drawing letters in the air? Or injuring himself and writing on the transparent wall in blood?

I'm cool with Spider-man taking over a spot which might have formerly been reserved for the Inhumans, especially with Marvel obtaining creative control. Kevin Feige will work his magic and give us something beautiful.

Aber,

I'm convinced that the attempt to give Barry back his powers has a similar effect like Flashpoint did, it almost kills him.

Yeah, judging from the preview for next week, I think you are correct. It'll almost kill him, perhaps burn him really badly before he heals, and maybe even give make him a bit faster.

4. I'm guessing the reason the Kree didn't get to use the Hive killing weapon is probably because they never got the chance. The Inhuman uprising probably caught them off guard, they fled and left the weapon behind. The other Inhumans (probably the Royal Ones, Black Bolt, Medusa etc), kept the weapon but didn't use it because they decided banishing Hive was better and more humane. Plus they probably used it more as a threat than a weapon.

This is something I'd love to see them explore further. Sadly, I recall seeing an article the other day saying they had removed the Inhumans movie from the roster of MCU flicks. So anything they do would have to be on TV.

Maybe one day......

Things are heating up (pun intended)….

Spoiler:
Hive is really f*&+ing creepy. The actor is doing a really good job. I love the explanation of how his powers affect other inhumans. And now we have a mysterious Kree artifact that is, apparently, “the only thing that can kill me” in Hive’s own words. Soooo…why didn’t they use it all those centuries ago, instead of banishing his parasitical ass?

Also, isn’t it a bit sad that so many “inhumans” look pretty much…human. I guess Disney has cut back their budget for making weird looking characters.

Damn, Phil! Love the shield. Reminds me of the energy shield Captain America used for a bit, lo those many years ago. I think Mark Waid was writing at the time. Sorry, though, Director Coulson, your hand is no longer the new hotness of cool enhancements.
Huzzah for Fitz and Simmons! Finally doing The Nasty!!!! The Horizontal Mambo! The Beast with Two Backs! The Hunka Chunka! Another fine job by both actors in all that verbal foreplay. I loved Fitz’s reaction when Simmons first mentioned them having sex.

Hey! That was the goofy brother from the Mummy movies! I’m guessing Hive wasn’t actually too afraid of the dude being able to hurt him. Seems like he needs him for…whatever. Sounds like Hive is planning to genetically modify more humans to be able to become Inhuman.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hrmmm….

Spoiler:
Yeah, Barry deserved the verbal assault Harry laid on him. He was a damned idiot for giving up his powers.

I’m getting pretty tired of Barry always needing the help of Team Flash to solve a problem. Yeah, it’s nice to have a support network, but just once I’d like him to show how damned awesome he is supposed to be by beating the villain of the week entirely on his own.

More references to Jessie Quick. Methinks she’s going to end up being the Flash of Earth-2. Which is cool. She’s a hottie, and smart as a whip.

I’m starting to like Wally more. He definitely showed he’s got character and is (at heart) a really good guy).

Caitlin and Evil-Caitlin. That was interesting. What’s her face did a really good job with the dual roles. And that scene where Zoom impales Killer Frost to death was pretty well done.

The dude playing Zoom/Hunter is doing a pretty good job as well. He looks to be slowly loosing it – getting more and more chaotic. And, of course, now he’s decided to go all Ghengis Khan on the multiverse. Good times.

After this b$&*%+#+ story of Flash so easily and stupidly giving up his powers, I really hope the payoff is worth it.

A river goes over a high cliff at about a 30-40 degree angle, falling into a large, circular lake before continuing on through a narrow channel. The angle of impact of water creates a constant whirlpool in the lake. Rising from the center of this lake is an ancient tower - originally of elvish origin, but now home to a school of wizardy whose headmaster is a devil.

This devil is known only as The Foresworn Devil. The curricula and philosophy he espouses is decidedly neutral. None know his true name, nor whence he came from (other than Hell), nor why he is there.

Very sad news. I really liked his music, and consider him to be one of the better all-around musicians the industry has ever produced. He's also easily in the top 25 of guitar players, I think. When I got home yesterday, I found out MTV had suspended all regular programming to play Prince music videos. First time I willingly turned to that channel in well over a decade.

I really enjoyed this episode….

Spoiler:
The whole whodunit thing was fun, but I knew it wasn’t Lincoln. That was just screaming “set-up”. Still, the growing sense of paranoia and distrust was well done. I like that they made it Daisy. It makes sense. Ward had history with her, so Hive was likely affected by those memories. Of the four of them, she’s arguably one of the more powerful (along with Lincoln), so would make a great minion.

Although, in truth, I was half-wondering if the “traitor” was going to end up being revealed as one of the human agents, and that Hive can control them as well.

So, Daisy is bringing Hive the Kree sphere and the Terrigen Crystals. I’m guessing the sphere is some kind of amplifier, and his plan is to disperse the Terrigen Mist across the planet in one big shot – a sort of mass kill-humans/convert-more-inhumans move.

I’m also wondering if Lash will prove immune to Hive’s control, and be shown as the ultimate weapon against him.

I still love the show, but this is getting kind of annoying….

Spoiler:
Oh, awesome! This tachyon thingamajig will make me faster than Zoom! Now I can beat him. Except when it doesn’t, and you can’t. I think part of the problem is they introduced Zoom too early and didn't have enough filler plots and stories. So now they have to stretch out the Big Bad fight in ridiculous ways.

And now Wally is a prisoner. Is Man in the Iron Mask Earth-2 Wally? Maybe he was Kid Flash? I’m almost done trying to guess, because whatever the answer is will probably be annoying.

Time remnant? I convinced him to let me murder him? Seriously? However, if the plan all along was to kill his “time remnant”, then why (right after it happened), did Zoom talk about the death creating complications?

You know what? I’m just going to stand over here and wait for the space-time continuum to collapse upon itself.

Damn, those Flash villains just love to kidnap Caitlin. Maybe Zoom will try and convert her into Killer Frost.

Deep thoughts.....

Not really.

Hey, Max just said we've only got four hours until this Myriad signal kills every human. Why don't I waste some time by changing back into my civilian garb and saying heartfelt goodbyes to my co-workers.

I did like that final showdown with Non and Indigo. Both our heroes kicked some ass.

Oh, Supergirl! You can't fly Fort Roz into space. There's no gravity! you can't get thrust! Since f@$!ing when? Superman flies through space all the f@~&ing time.

They did throw me for a loop with the new ship. It definitely looks Kryptonian. If it's a younger Supergirl, though, and they try to do some freaky time paradox s!&$, I'll be pissed. Or maybe they'll play up the alternate Earths some more....

Either way, I find myself hoping they get renewed for Season 2. Unless they have already, and I missed the announcement.

Hive is just plain old, f$*$ing creepy.

But I'm glad he killed the daughter and not the Powers Boothe. I like that dude.

Also, the ease with which they captured some of the most bad-ass SHIELD agents was very sad to see.

Considering we are fast approaching Civil War, I have been wondering if they might do a guest spot at the end of this season, with a certain Armored Avenger appearing to lay claim to the directorship. That would be cool.

I own many of the Warner Premiere movies: I'm missing a few older ones, some of which I had on DVD and haven't yet gotten on Bluray. I've also refrained from buying some of the more recent Batman ones because I really despise the Damien Wayne character.

Some of my favorite are:
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (James Woods as Owlman!)
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (cool anthology)
Batman: Year One (one of the best adaptations of a comic story)
Superman vs The Elite (watching Supes Unleashed was awesome!)
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (duh!)

I'm really looking forward to The Killing Joke - it's only one of my favorite Batman stories ever. Really looking forward to Mark Hammill doing this version of the Joker.

I'd love to see them do Batman: Year Two, where he takes on The Reaper. That could be really cool. And maybe the old Gothic Story from Legends of the Dark Knight - Mr. Whisper was terrifyingly badass. Another good adaptation might be the JLA/JSA crossover story Virtue and Vice. The Great Darkness Saga would also be awesome! So would Crisis on Infinite Earths, but that would definitely be a multi parter.

Regarding the trailer - just from this alone, I've got some raised hopes for this movie. It had the "feel" of the original trilogy to me (if that makes sense), with the seemingly all-powerful and pervasive Empire, and the desperate Rebel forces.

I loved seeing Forest Whitaker. He's always awesome. And I read that Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk will also be in it, which makes me happy. Not sure who the lead chick was. I checked her out on IMDB, but I don't think I've ever seen anything she's in. Still, there was a hint of the Princess Leia toughness about her, maybe with a dash of Han Solo "rogue".

All in all, I've got some positive vibes about this.

Prophetic visions and talk of time predicaments sometimes make my head hurt….

Spoiler:
Still, I thought they pulled this episode off rather well. I especially loved the bit where they thought Coulson was going to shoot Daisy, only to have him shoot her reflection.

For a moment, I thought that homeless dude was Jeff Daniels.

I love Ward/Hive. So far, the dude has done an awesome job of blending the two characters. I wish they’d settle on just what his power(s?) are. And it was nice to see the reactions of Coulson and company when they saw him in the video. Fitz, as his usual awesome self, quickly pointed out that this was not completely Ward, and that the Maveth monster had succeeded in his escape.

It seems like Malick is finally getting the hint (a) Hive has his own agenda, (b) that agenda doesn’t involve humans in any position other than cattle or fodder, and (c) the other inhumans Malick has recruited no longer give a s@*! what he thinks. It’ll be interesting to see how long before this fractures the bad guys.

Poor Andrew – finally gone for good. It seems like they might be setting Lash up as a potential weapon to stop Hive. If that’s turns out to be the case, then it makes the whole “inhuman powers develop as part of a plan” narrative a bit more interesting. If Lash is intended as a planned evolution to counteract Hive, and he got his powers before Hive even returned to Earth, then it begs the question of how did whatever force is behind the not-so-random inhuman development know that Hive would soon return? It might, in part, be due to the activation of the obelisk portal (when Simmons was sucked in). This happened before so many inhumans started popping up (and presumably before Andrew was exposed to the Terrigen Mist/Crystals). So that portal opening could have triggered something.

I look forward to the next episode. From the preview, it looks like they’re going to show Hive’s comic book look.

Dannag Stonecaller is a wandering dwarven monk, mystic, and seeker of knowledge. As a youth, he was trapped for four days by a cave-in. During that time, he claims to have had a vision of the fallen Elemental Lord Sairazul, the Crystalline Queen, in which she commanded him to seek out the Moaning Diamond and find a way to free her essence from that prison artifact. Most in hi community considered him to have gone mad. Shortly thereafter, he left home to try and fulfill his quest.
