HG!!!!!!! Back with a bang, and smart as ever. I cannot stop gushing over just how smart she is, okay? It took her a moment to figure out what everybody else is trying to make sense of even now, and of course she told Mrs. Frederic -- the combined force of HG + Mrs. F is downright scary. It might also explain the white strand in Mrs. F's hair and why she's decided to train Claudia right now. However, show:

NO KILLING MRS. F AND HG AGAIN NO

Ahem.

I am, however, tickled by the increasing amount of HG/Artie parallels, down to the 'we made a good team' with Dr. Calder (what do you mean HG/Myka isn't a canon pairing?), and am happy to note that I was right about Artie's sekrit phonecall being to HG. The parallels don't bode well for Artie, but then I've grown very fond of the 'Artie IS the big evil' theory. He and Helena have similar less-than-stellar pasts, and as Myka reminded us, the Warehouse has its way of turning its agents crazy. (I have always loved that sense of history about the Warehouse.)

I still can't tell what Myka's emotional arc this season is. There have been various moments of her being compassionate and willing to consider different points of view and why people might do evil(ish) things -- which I have, naturally, read as love letters to HG -- but what is it leading to? I want to know!


ALSO. I TRUST EVERYBODY HAS SEEN THIS PROMO FOR THE GOOD WIFE S4? MY EXCITMENT CANNOT BE TEXTUALLY RENDERED \0/

You have no idea how much I squeed at HG's line about how time travel had been a bit of an unhealthy obsession for her. It was just everything I love about redemption arcs that have people recognising destructive patterns of behaviour and changing without going all manpain-y about it.

And on a totally shallow note: looking good, Helena.

I had not seen that promo, omg thank you!

The HG/Artie parallels are stacking up - Artie is not quite as good at the secrecy as HG, but pretty much up there on the masterminding - but I agree with your GIANT TEXT! NO KILLING!

Hi! I am subscribing to you because I keep seeing you on my network talking about stuff I like (comics, tv, comics and tv) and I need more squee in my journal about W13 and The Good Wife this autumn. Hope that's okay, and hi! :D
