Western! And a wedding! And Damien Darhk! And puppets! And not!MrRogers! And ... Gary-the-unspeakable-train-abomination?!!
How did they fit all that in one episode??
"Is Mr. Parker getting tipsy?"
"He's filmed 4,000 hours of kids TV, he's earned it."
Something of a theme here between two of the plot lines, about troubled father-daughter relationships.
Mick has a lot of issues to work through before he accepts that he can act as a father. Though I know he wouldn't even contemplate it if he hadn't already worked out some of his issues with his own father. He really has transformed so much over the course of the series.
Damien however ... Oh dear. The entire lessen they had him learn here, and he didn't learn it at all!!!
The lesson was supposed to be: He wants Nora to be happy, but the best way to do that is to let her decide what she wants for herself, and support her in that. Not
to decide for
her based on what he thinks
she should want. And he supposedly learned that!
So what does he do? He turns around and makes another
decision for her behind her back
! Deciding what he
thinks is the best way to live her chosen path! Seriously!!!
(BTW, there are a few things going around the internet of Brandon Routh saying he is unhappy with how Ray and Nora's exit was handled on the show. Apparently he and Courtney didn't choose to leave, the show-runner ordered it and that was that.
I don't know all the details though.)
Anyway, so many funny and awesome little moments in this episode, I just feel like listing them!
Constantine spitting in the library!
: "What are you still doing here?"
Gary tied to train tracks!
And then he gets turned into a train! Which he said cured his fear of trains ... was he always afraid of trains, or was that caused by being tied to the tracks?!?
Damien called Astra's plan a "Soul harvesting pyramid scheme". He's not wrong!
Zari, *reading Mick's book*
: "This is extremely pornographic."
: "Thank you."
Sarah and Ava as "Hench-people"!
"Do it for book club!"
Why does he keep changing his shoes?
Oh, changing his shoes is a soothing ritual which takes him from one space to another.
Do you need to change your shoes?
I think I do.
Quote from transcript: https://tvshowtransc...86beae63fae791d
"My standards were low and his sperm count was high."
Ray trying to mime "moose"!
And apparently, there is no chocolate in hell!
All the proposal hijinks!
"Dad, I am not a child! You can't just kill my friends anymore!"
So much baggage in that one line.
All the scenes once they were in the "Mr. Parker" TV show!!!
Damien talking gibberish!
Gary train: "Chugga-chugga whee!"
Nate as the sun, just giggling!
And the wedding!
Gary did get to be the Flower boy!
Oh, and Sarah & Ava! Sarah is willing to get a real job and apartment, to settle down with Ava.
Only to find out that Ava is very happy with them living together on the Waverider!
PS. RJ I will reply to your comments in a bit.
