Joe and Danny’s scene was superb, superb, superb. In your smug face, Joe. Danny’s loyalty and compassion are impenetrable to your manipulation and instrumentalism! MAWHAHAH!

I think if there’s one thing that got pummelled into us today is that every one of Steve’s parental figures is a horrible human being. Doris, because ultimately the fact that she wanted to be a mother doesn’t mean she was actually cut out for it. Jack, for abandoning his kids once Doris decided she’d rather have adventures than be a teacher and full time mom. Joe, for his manipulative ulterior motives and using Steve like a tool for his own gains.

Always with making Steve a tool and making him feel worthless, huh, parental units.

Chin shouting at Kono to get out moved me a lot. Chin’s eyes, my god, berserk and worried and he’d fly to Hong Kong right now if he could.

The sat-phone is the most obvious thing in the world, the Yakuza could have snatched her right there, seriously.

However, I was mainly bored by this episode.

I wasn’t interested in Billy. I’m not interested in Cath. I’m not interested in Steve/Cath, so the focus of the ep and the procedural left me distracted.

Oh, except when Steve espoused his stupid sexist ideas regarding motive (“Woman scored” and “unrequited love”?). Seriously show, seriously. A little humanity is all I ask for.

And then I got angry about the Navy and the Military and the fact that show loves them a little too much.

I’m really sick of the show’s veneration of dead soldiers. We get it, the US Army and the US Navy do important work and should be honoured and blah blah blah.

I don’t agree, by the way, that the military is an institution that should be idolised to the point in which it is, accountability tends to fly out the window and it’s no questions asked when it comes to the bullshit global the military-industrial complex pulls.

Lives lost is always tragic, but venerating a life inside a uniform as opposed to a random shcmuck who ended up as “collateral damage”? No, I that’s just supremacy. Not to mention that showing us another full dress uniform right after the one in the previous season rubs me the wrong way, because I’m sick of seeing of this celebration of death and the uniform.

And that’s my unpopular opinion of the day.

Not as unpopular as one might think, as all of those things are true and need to be addressed.

Another person saying it's not an unpopular opinion, since I agree. But then again, I'm not really watching the show any more. But I kind of wonder if this veneration of the military was a factor in that. They relentlessly shove that down our throat on the show and I feel like it's kind of an easy emotional beat for them.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.

*KABOOM!*
