Emily certainly knows how to pick em.
If you ever felt the need to date a bad boy, the latest episode of Powerless is a great example of why it’s not such a good idea. Emily decides that it’s time for her to explore Charms City dating circle only to discover that it’s pretty slim pickings. Until she meets Dan the “doctor” and she falls head over heels for the guy. Oblivious to the fact that he’s one of Riddlers henchmen, she’s the last to figure this out, with her coworkers discovering this the second they meet the guy. All Emily wanted to do was meet a nice guy, but like Teddy says, Charm City is overrun with henchmen.
Teddy and Ron find a batarang at a crime scene and are dead set on meeting Batman. Van is also interested in meeting a Batman, because he thinks he owes him 30 thousand dollars. This was a hilarious premise, and Van even wanted to be the next Robin. Knowing that Batman and The Riddler are running around Charm City, yet we as the audience will never get to see them on the screen is a kind of frustrating but it makes sense. The show will never show us the people we truly want to see. No Batman, no Riddler, not even Condiment King will show up. I’ll be okay with this, because it’s almost a cooler concept knowing that these characters are around but just in the shadows.
This was another solid episode, the show keeps getting better. I think it’s finally discovering what it wants to be, and everything just seems natural. Powerless has some serious momentum right now; I really hope it can continue.
Check ya later.
