He's come a long way since the blue haired, spoiled, careless teenager we were introduced to at the start of the first episode. In being forced to kill Skeuver to defend his mother's honor, we're not only seeing Alak is a different sort of Castithan (revenge killings are generally NBD) but also has a soul.
Nolan and Amanda Have Sex
About damn time.
Nolan The Hero
It was awesome to see Nolan get applause after saving Stahma, but we're more fans of the Nolan/Stahma interaction. They've got an interesting dynamic (how great would it be if they had an affair. Imagine Datak learning THAT), so any shred of interplay between the two is a plus.
Yewll Drops A Digit
First of all, gross. Second, Pottinger clearly doesn't play. And that's awesome.
The Tables Are Turned
The whole "do something bad, then play the hero in order to win favor" is a clever move, but also a staple of any good TV schemer. USUALLY it works. But in the case of Pottinger, he saw right through Datak's attempt to "play hero" and get out of prison, and flat out denied him. Datak's reaction and Pottinger breezy dismissal was a two-fold dose of awesome.
