The 100: The Dying of the Light

"Faith doesn't just die. It gets carried forward."

Credit where credit is due, this was a great episode. Riveting, actually, this is the word that kept coming to my mind after I finished watching "The Dying of the Light." I don't remember the last time I watched an episode of The 100 and found it riveting. The final minutes were edge-of-your-seat good.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: A Simple Investigation

Odo: "I don't have a heart."
Arissa: "You could have fooled me."

By nature I love brevity: An interesting premise with a lot of potential and an interesting if slightly derivative conclusion, and in between... yeah, they kind of forgot the 'in between' part.

Doom Patrol: Sex Patrol

"I’m in a full blown psychological crisis, and you’re offering me ecstasy."

Oh my.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Doctor Bashir, I Presume?

"What do you want me to do?"
"Just stand there and look like a doctor... if you can."

I expected to love this episode from the title alone. I also expected it to be another homage to Bond and take place in the holosuite and focus on the aftermath of the major events that happened over the last two episodes.

"When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change."

The 100: The Stranger

"I don't trust you. I do, however, trust the love you have for your friends."

That line, said by Cadogan to Clarke, is Clarke in a nutshell. Her allegiance shifts in a heartbeat if that's what it takes to protect and save those she's chosen as her family. You want to be on the lady's right side. Now we are watching Clarke search a way out of war and do all that is possible to take her loved ones out of danger for the last time. Will she get it done? More importantly, can she get through to Bellamy and save him from himself?
