There were two more pictures that I didn't post:

The first one seemed spoilery ... and hilarious!  :howling:  I'm guessing this is the anachronism:

And I will hide this one too, because I am sick of this guest character.  (Also, this his really not his look. :rolleyes:)

I wrote yesterday in the "Supergirl" thread how I wished the ending of that episode would have been much darker (go read what I mean here). But, just to clarify, I wanted that ending to be darker, since I felt the gut-punch would have been so much stronger, and the ache of having to wait five weeks for the next episode would have been that much bigger. But, I don't like it all to be dark, not everything, not the whole show, not the whole season. It's "Supergirl", it deserves to be one of the lighter shows. But sometimes, it really should have to hurt, and it could have hurt more in that moment than it did.
Why am I writing this? Because, heck, I do love to have fun with an episode, and, boy, did my body literally hurt from laughing so hard at all the scenes with Beebo. :) :) :howling: :howling:

When Beebo got introduced as the Vikings' new God, all dolled up on his "throne", I had to turn the episode off, I just couldn't go on from laughing. :D  This episode was the perfect mix of fun and seriousness. They never made Stein's death the butt of a joke, but sill managed to get so many hilariously funny scenes there, and both moods co-existed perfectly together. You have to watch out for director Kevin Mock, who probably is brought in when an episode needs a light and funny touch. He also directed the episode, "Phone Home", which was a wonderful homage to the 80s and its movies.

It's a bit sad that the show loses another cast member so soon after Victor Garber left. But story-wise, it's probably for the best, because I feel that Jax wouldn't have worked without Stein, and just having someone else partner with him as Firestorm, or him becoming Firestorm all by himself, would have felt like a disservice to the character of Martin Stein. It was nice to see his younger version again, and true form when he decided not to open the letter.

Now, we'll have to wait until February to see what Constantine brings to the show, and what dimension Sara was dragged to shortly.

I don't think it's clear yet whether Jax has really left the team for good or just as a cliffhanger or a break of a couple of weeks until something brings him back. I mean, it was announced months ago that Victor Garber was leaving the show, but nothing was announced about Franz Drameh leaving. If they could keep only one of those departures secret, surely Garber's would've been the better one to conceal.

^^Well, according to EW, his exit seems permanent, with the door being open for the occasional guest spot. As for concealing Garber's departure, that was the intent, until Garber's husband posted the news that his spouse would be starring in "Hello, Dolly" on the stage. That made it clear that Garber's involvement with the show was coming to an end.

Hmm, given how much time they spent setting up the arc that Martin wanted to leave the team, I figured they expected all along that Garber's departure would be announced in advance and were trying to make us think Martin was just going to go home.

Well, that's too bad. I was finally warming to Franz Drameh as an actor -- he really killed it in his scenes with Garber in "Crisis," and he's been a core part of the cast for so long that it won't be the same without him. And they spent so much time setting up Jax's desire to remain a Legend and find a way to continue contributing to the team that writing him out seems like an abandonment of that character arc. Plus, just in general, losing two series leads within a week of each other is a pretty big blow.

There's precedent in the comics to have a "rotating Firestorm," if they wanted to keep Jax around; just have him find a new partner, but this time he's the one stuck inside Firestorm's head being the mentor-voice.
