'Kali Yuga' -- SH 2x14
Warning: Spoiler Alert
Why does anyone trust Katrina at this point? Almost everything she does seems to be shady now. Her actions may have come from the desire to save her son, but they've morphed now so that it seems like she would be willing to do other people harm if it meant that Henry would be saved. And at a certain point, it would seem as though she should realize that the things that he's done have been awful, and maybe she should walk away from her effort to try and redeem him (since the lives of everyone else on the planet might be spared if she didn't try so very hard to make sure that she keeps trying to remind him that she's his mother). Yes, it would have to be a hard thing for her to do ... but she has to realize that in all likelihood the chances of him not eventually doing something so horrible that it wipes out a huge amount of people might make it worth it to not try so hard to save him at the expense of everyone else. Sure, he ended up killing Moloch, but we don't know what happened to him, or if he's becoming the new Power for the dark side now.
I don't believe her for a second when she says that Henry's influence can't be felt on Irving anymore. It's not just the flashes that she got when she was doing the whole "let's give you an aura cleanse" thing ... it was also the expression that she had when she said it (and when she was looking at Irving getting happy about it), and let's not forget the fact that Irving doesn't have a reflection now. No good is going to come from that. None. It makes me think too much that he might be the new Horseman of War (and that Henry may becoming the new Power). I may be reading that all wrong, but that's the impression that I'm getting.
I can't say too much that I'll be sad to see Hawley go. I've enjoyed him in the episodes that he's been in, but sometimes too much of a good thing and all that. Maybe we'll see him some more later on, when there's a big fight or something, but I'm not going to be holding my breath on that one. And even if I kind of like the idea (right now) of Jenny and Hawley getting together, I think that if there was too much of that in the show, it would end up annoying me to no ends, and I would end up wishing that the writers had never put it in there.
Good on Captain Skinnyjeans and Abbie finally having a real talk with each other and airing things out between them ... and it only took nearly dying for the two of them finally went, "you know ... maybe we should fix this before things get so bad that we never are able to make peace with each other." Stupids. Makes you want to smack their heads together, no? But hopefully the two of them will be stronger for this, and we will see them be the ultimate tag team that they are supposed to be ... provided that the show can get back on track and give us Team Witness Fighting the Good Fight ... instead of Population Family Dramaville.
