Damn, the finale was pretty good.
The eventual problem solve was (to me) anti climactic, but everything leading up to it? Fucking great.
Ty’s powers working more like the comics version was nice to see. Not so nice for that dirty cop, though.

I remember discussing his cloak a couple pages back; i mentioned to my spouse how i thought his old hoodie would come into play in that regard, but when the comics looking one showed up, i didnt bother mentioning it here. Guess i wasnt too far off, and, a black kid in a hoodie w. a white cop shooting at him, surely was a conscious decision. But one that works visually, too, since its a better overall look.

Had to look up the O’Reilly cop after the end of the ep.
I think i only ever saw her in a Marvel handbook, as the pic from my image search is the only memory i have of her.

Wealth & Fame he ignores, breaking scourge, is his reward. Look out!

Yeah the problem solution was terrible every thing about it including the music choice.  Other than that really enjoyed the episode.

My only gripe was the song. And I didnt really hate it I just thought it was goofy for a show that was pretty serious the whole time. The ending seemed like it was going for a GotG feel.

It didnt fit, i agree. I would still call the fix anti climactic, but, a better soundtrack at that point would really have helped. Even something hokey like House of the Rising Sun.

Finally caught up with it. My original thoughts still stand; Tandy sometimes borders on being too unlikable, but Ty is the absolute heart of the show. Aubrey Joseph should go on to have a great career.

I think some things they left a little too vague. Just how did Connors frame Ty for killing that cop? When Tandy "steals someone's hopes," what effect exactly does that have on them? Etc.

Ty's gaslighting of Connors was one of the highlights of the entire season. Shame it didn't stick.

I think the other highlight was Ty and Tandy helping Mr. Hess escape the mental loop he was trapped in.

Can't wait to see O'Reilly come back. Love that tagline. "Season Two Will Be MAYHEM" indeed...
Truten forever!
