Jesus... those fucking TALKING GILLS!!!
The control that Starlight takes in the tense situation with A-train seemed perfect to me. and to think that she seemed the naive, deadbeat of the group. I love the script of this series and how they develop the characters.

The deep subplot is extremely lame so far
the Starlight’s bag plot is ridiculous, like it was written by 10 years old boy. anyway, this is second episode, and I don’t care about what’s going on my screen, too much baby drama
The writing is so dumbed-down and literal. Even this episode's best moments, Stormfront's rant in front of the cameras and Kimiko's heart-to-heart with her brother, it feels like the show is talking to 10-year olds.
We finally got Meave without the costume! She looked so pretty in regular clothes!I don’t know what’s the endgame with Deep... he is a rapist who instead of jail or a real punishment he just got sent away to a nice apartment with a paycheck, so I don’t have any sympathy for him and I don’t the purpose of showing his life after being exiled.And I’m getting a little tired of A-train, if he’s gonna be the same as season 1 then there’s no point of having him, nothing new and after a while these type of villains -the ones obsessed with a conflict even tho it’s been proved it’s their wrongdoing- get annoying, so maybe they shouldn’t have saved him.I don’t trust Stormfront, if Mr Edgar appointed her there must be a reason why!I don’t blame Frenchie for not getting “that’s my brother” out of the word ‘boy’ like I just assumed the supeterrorist was a little boy, not her brother.
The episode wasn't bad but so far this is not as enjoyable as Season 1.. I don't know if is it the plot or the dialogue, but it seems like there is something missing.. And those talking gills! :confounded:
"Just drop the mask once in a while. Feels good. You can finally breathe."
I have a feeling the creators didn't know how these few lines would have a different meaning by the time this episode airs opposed to when they innocently wrote this dialogue, but boy, it is not good.
These first couple of episodes this season certainly haven't been bad, but they're far from being anything memorable or fantastic like the first season.
Great character development with Starlight this season. Glad we've seen some more from Queen Maeve too.
Anyone else really dislikes Butcher or is it just me? He's such an as*hole and I don't even feel sorry for him. The show's way better when he's not on the sreen.
I was less entertained while watching this episode than I was while watching the premiere. And I think that's a bad thing. The premiere felt slow, but I was sufficiently entertained. This episode felt like nothing happened ─ no progression or hardly any, that sort of thing ─ and I wasn't as entertained. If I'm entertained more while watching this episode, that would mean I'd become invested in the season a little faster. Usually, it takes a few episodes for that to happen ─ with any show, I think. I mean, there are probably shows that I'll end up watching sooner or later that will take fewer episodes for that to happen.
This show, specifically, or rather ─ this season, isn't going to be like that, I feel like, which is why I think it's a bad thing that I wasn't as entertained or more entertained while watching this episode as I was with the premiere. It means that I won't become as invested in the season as I would've liked.
Preferably, I would like to be invested enough with what I'm watching to where it's on my mind, frequently and consistently ─ and to where it's always brought back to my imagination, in some way, as quickly into the season as possible. And I think watching an episode every other day with a day in-between of not watching an episode is good, in general, and mentally, and should help with that desire of mine as well.
Now, I'd like that to start happening around the second or third episode, at minimum. But I feel like, in this case, it may not start happening until after the third episode, which worries me. Oh, and if it wasn't obvious already, I don't think it is happening yet, not with this episode. Anyway, I hope that despite it possibly happening in a few more episodes and not the next episode, I'll still find watching this season as enjoyable as it is.
Moving on, a theory of mine that I thought of yesterday happened to be true, which I was a bit surprised by. I wish I thought of it the day before, as I was writing my thoughts about the premiere so I could've added it. Basically, I thought of two theories about what The Female/Kimiko was trying to tell Frenchie after finding that origami figure near the boat in the premiere.
a.) She figured out that the Supe(r)villain is a kid
b.) The origami figure that she found was something that her brother did, suggesting that the Supe(r)villain is her brother
I figured that the first theory wouldn't make much sense, given how she cared so much about trying to tell Frenchie something. And with this episode, that was proven to be true, along with my second theory being true as well. The more I think about it, the more predictable that "twist" seems to be, you know? Granted, it was entirely by luck that I thought of it, but still. Regardless, I was a bit proud of myself for calling it.
Annie's playing with fire. Sure, good for her and all that for being brave and taking Stormfront's advice, and whatnot, but she's playing with fire. A-Train has no reason not to rat her out with how she has some Compound V to the higher-ups at Vought along with other things. I know that there's the fact that he killed Popclaw ─ and, yeah. That's seemingly more than enough reason not to.
But I feel like that's not enough, and maybe not anything at all. Homelander knew about it. Furthermore, he's the reason A-Train did it, right? And that was related to Homelander's plan to create Supe(r)villains, which Stan is aware of, as proven in the premiere. If it weren't for Homelander, A-Train never would've killed her. I think he truly loved her. Or am I misremembering things?
I get that Homelander isn't necessarily apart of this specific picture, in that Annie wouldn't go to him with that information, or Vought, for that matter. She said it herself. She's smart enough to know that it wouldn't matter if she brought that to Homelander or Vought. But why does she think that bringing it to Sports Illustrated will be any better? Vought probably has spies throughout every company, news outlet, and so on. Not to mention, they must be smart enough to keep enough tabs on what their heroes do to where she'd never get that information to them in the first place.
Anyway, that's all I can think of to write for this episode. I don't think it was a bad episode, but I wasn't as entertained while watching it as I was with the premiere. But this is only the second episode of the season. I'm sure it's going to increase in the entertainment category.
I liked Stormfront, but her attitude was a bit too bitchy in this one. On one hand I can understand it, as Starlight does come off that way, but for Stormfront seemingly questioning everything and being reflective, her being this dismissive of Starlight not just being your regular blow up doll seemed rather low. Double standards much?
Homelander is still fantastic at giving people the creeps.But no show without the Homelander, so I guess we have to endure a bit longer.
This show does not hold back on the violence and good moments between Maeve and her GF, revelations for Starlight and Stormfront and epic action for the boys!
Glad to see our fucked up friends again as much as our fucked up Supes! I have a feeling that's gonna be fucking heads exploding and chopped up limbs great season!
