Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1.17 – Turn, Turn, Turn: I love how the show has grown since the pilot and I definitely care much more about the characters than I used to, despite how Coulson and May have always been my favorite. I even found myself caring for Simmons this time. I didn’t see the new Captain America movie, so I knew I would get spoilers for the film with this episode. I was in for a shock regarding Fury, and it saddened me. The episode was a game changer as announced by its trailer. It was Marvel and Whedon epicness at its best in my view. I liked how it was so important for most dynamics within the team. And it didn’t feel gratuitous at all! The whole Clairvoyant and Hydra aspect was very good and made for solid, albeit crazy twists! I’m very curious to see how much mess the team will have to go through between the shock regarding Ward and the crisis they are facing.
Game of Thrones 4.01 – Two Swords: I loved the episode and I found that it was a better season opener than the one for the previous season. It felt as if we really saw (almost) everyone and it felt more complete as such. I loved seeing how big Daenerys’s dragons are becoming. I know they are dangerous but I still find them cute and the big black being with his head on his mother’s lap for a moment reminded me of Toothless in How To Train Your Dragon. I still really like her second, Ser Jorah. I never liked Sansa but this episode comforted me in that feeling. She just annoys me. It isn’t about how she should be wielding swords and running away or whatever. She could have had been different in many other ways. I felt bad for Tyrion when he tried to even make her think of her mother and how Lady Stark would have wanted her to carry on. I also feel bad for Shae as this is one huge mess. The new threat in King’s Landing will probably cause lots of trouble in this season. I felt like slapping Cersei when I saw how she treated Jaime and was all “me, me, me” as always. I was happy to see Jaime stand up for himself with his father and even Joffrey. The scenes between the Hound and Arya were priceless and having a bit of a laugh at times was relaxing. Arya continues to grow up well. I was glad to see both Brienne and Jon still be the great characters they can be. I can’t wait to see the next episode.
The 100 1.04 – Murphy’s Law: I admit that I didn’t get many of the characters’ mindset in this episode. Many of them just baffled me. Clarke was growing on me but she annoyed me in this episode. I mean I understand how she tries to be just and protect everyone, but the way she was all about protecting Charlotte after she admitted murdering her childhood friend she had just patched things up with? Well, I scratched my head. Sure, Charlotte was a child, but at the same time, nobody knew why she had been imprisoned in the first place. On the other side, Bellamy confirmed becoming a really interesting character. I liked Abby as always in the episode, even though I am angry at her for having been responsible for getting her husband airlocked. She is an interesting character and I understand her better than her daughter at least. I liked Raven and was glad that she refused the offer that other woman made her to get the piece. That scene disgusted me especially with how the older woman seemed to think it wasn’t shocking, and was rubbing it in about how Raven’s mother had gone for it several times. As for the ending with Raven being close to crash on Earth and of course, her boyfriend Finn and Clarke jumping each other, it made me shake my head. Why is there always a need for love triangles?
