Wait. Kenya's alive? We saw Stahma kill her last season. WTF?
I Hate You, Let's Have Sex
A television staple that we'll never tire of is hate sex. You know, two characters (in this case, aliens) can't stand each other so much that bickering turns to copulation. Joan Collins really mastered this on Dynasty. Datak and Stahma are really carrying on the tradition well. This scene is especially wonderful because Stahma's so boss in it AND it happens in a trailer.
Moral Dilemma, Amanda Style
We love a good moral quandry - in this case, Amanda's was to save New York City or save her long-missing sister, Kenya. Given Amanda's upstanding nature, to see her choose her sister over millions of other lives was a nice surprise and provided some nice friction with Nolan. Bonus points for concocting a smart plan for getting the Votanis Collective spy she needed to trade Kenya for out of prison.
Reunited And It Feels So Good
We're saps for a good reunion, and seeing Amanda's face when she saw Kenya for the first time was primo. Kudos to Julie Benz.
The Calm Before The Storm
Up until this point, Irisa has been pretty actively fighting "Irzu" (the name for the....thing that's inside her) and its control of her. Like, hello, she tried to kill herself to escape. But Irisa's eerily calm acceptance of Irzu's presence, the number of "followers" that have showed up and Irzu's promise that "Arkrise" is coming has us colored intrigued.
