The Blue And The Gold - Episode Discussion

Once again, second_batgirl has weekend travel, so I get both posts this week.


-Oh, Kevin. You're trying, but you aren't going to convince anyone Antonio is more boring than you.
-TRAIL OF TEARS WHAT. WHAT. NOT COOL. Oh, show.
-Antonio. You just go reunited with Jayden. Why creep on Kevin now?
-Dayu/Deker? I can get behind this.
-SAM THE PANDA. Not only do Bulk and Spike get tied into the plot more than usual, CONTINUITY. :D
-Bulk an Spike have a "Spoils of War" shelf. That Sam was on. Awww.
-"Did you hear that, Antonio?" HEEEEE
- Octoroo, your US face tentacles could use some work. Pretty sure that mouth is there in Japan, but it's not so... visible.
-We're finally getting extended shamisen music out of Dayu! Even if it's not the tune from Shinkenger I've been waiting for, there was a variation on the MMPR theme in there once, so it's cool.
-Dayu/Deker. Seriously.
-"I've got a bad feeling about this." Well, now we know Ji didn't keep Jayden from movies or something uber-sheltery.
-HEEE, Kevin knows how boring he is.
-KEVIN IS ONE MINUTE LATE SOMETHING IS SUPER WRONG. I love it.
-"Start with the coolest toy!" Octoroo, you are so devious.
-God, Antonio's Mega Mode is pretty.
-"...Not!" The writers really do have a 90's nostalgia directive, don't they.


I love this ridiculous, ridiculous show.

I wouldn't have been so against it if her first line hadn't been "Oh! Dekker!"

That line definitely stood out for me, too. There are so many intonations on "Oh, [name]" and they each shift the meaning. I think she was aiming for a reading at the sympathy/disappointment end of the spectrum, but she kind of landed in the bedroom. It was definitely off, but I still generally like the direction it's going, as long as there's no Dayu defining herself by her relation to Deker.

It felt like the line was left hanging, I almost expected "my lover!" in there. And the "you remember anything else?" made it even more glaring.

If they are changing the dynamics of this couple, like you said, I hope her character is not defined by her relationship to and with Deker. I see a lot of potential in it, as long as it's not strangled by the romantic aspect of any partnership they may develop.
