Oh my god, The Magicians. Did Eliot kill a dude? Like other than the kid with the bus? Was this when they were geese? Or before that? Was this why Margo went clubbing or whatever with that other boy? Or was it the other boy? Idk, he needs to get over it though. I swear, you miss, like, two mins of this show and completely skip over some majorly important plot point. I did not think I had to invest this much thinking into a show about college magicians. Also, like, worst administration ever? 40 time loops is a bit much. Esp when you're not telling anyone about them. I mean, that could have been going on for, like, 10 years or something. And who was the Filory girl that died? Like, who was she now? Is it one that got Q into Breakbills? And how did she die? Did we know about this? I think maybe syfy cuts things out. And I can't believe they went back to 1941 for a couple of days but wore their modern clothing. I mean, really.
Most importantly Hanna is the best god and I hope she comes back again and doesn't actually turn out to be evil.
And I kinda hope that Q isn't the purest of heart. Like, obvs, it should be Julia, she's god touched. But I secretly hope it's Eliot and it surprises him and helps him be okay with himself.
Next week's the season finale. Fingers crossed that they actually solve things.
Unlike The Walking Dead, which is awful. Even if JDM is fine looking.
Cheyenne met an older, too cool for school, bad boy marshal who saved his life, and then he shot a snake to save the marshal's life, and the marshal was all 'nice shooting, Cheyenne, shot the head clean off' and Cheyenne sort of batted his eyes and was like 'well, I was aiming for his rattle' and they laughed at each other. There was a lot of flirting that was going on, and the marshal asked Cheyenne to be his deputy, and got him a badge, and put his arm around Cheyenne, and Cheyenne was real into it. But then the townsfolk weren't cool with the marshal and were like 'Cheyenne, I'm surprised that you're hanging around with a guy like that' and Cheyenne pouted and talked about the marshal being a law man, so anything he did was okay. But then it turned out that the marshal shot all the guys he brought in on warrants, and then Cheyenne had to shoot him, because it was the right thing to do. Cheyenne doesn't have much luck with older guys who he thought he could respect. He also had trouble with an old sheriff who was bffs with Cheyenne when he was a tenderfoot deputy in Tombstone (Cheyenne also gets deputized a lot I guess), but now he raised cattle, but was actually rustling them, and Cheyenne had to find that out instead of letting it go and being on his way. Because Cheyenne just can't stay out of trouble.
These are his theme song lyrics, and they're amazing and tragic:
Cheyenne, Cheyenne, where will you be camping tonight?
Lonely man, Cheyenne, will your heart stay free and light?
Dream, Cheyenne, of a girl you may never love.
Move along, Cheyenne, like the restless cloud up above.
The wind that blows, that comes and goes, has been your only home.
But will the wild wind one day cease and you'll no longer roam?
Move along, Cheyenne, next pasture's always so green.
Driftin' on, Cheyenne, don't forget the things you have seen.
And when you will settle down, where will it be, Cheyenne?
Here's a wild review of the second season
Agents of Shield tried to explain fixed timelines and future vision with Flat Land. But no one pointed out the obvious thing, which was (regardless of their reality being fixed timeline or splitting timelines/multiverse) that the future was only happening the way it was happening because the person saw the future. No amount of trying to change it would have helped because everything that they did after they saw the future was a result of seeing the future, which, then, leads to the future that they saw. Explaining time as a fixed dimension that we can only see slices of doesn't even matter because of how the writers portrayed the first guy seeing the future ("I know who you are because I saw this happening"). Time in the AOS!verse could easily be splitting into multiple timelines depending on the choices made and not actually be fixed at all. Of course, the characters wouldn't know this because, kinda like Coulson's John Connor example, going back in time alters a new (split) timeline, which allows you to do what you did without changing your (original timeline's) past... seeing the future is the split that leads them to a new timeline.
Now, if you had a character who's power was to see all possible timelines... maybe you could "change the future" (skip over to a more preferable future outcome while still being, you know, original timeline you).
