Sense8 season 2, episode 12, “Amor Vincit Omnia”
– We love seeing everyone in the same place, even if it’s super confusing.
– But did everyone seem a little bit like a caricature of themselves?
– Wolfgang isn’t being tortured anymore!
– But he’s still got some demons.
– Then again, he could be doing worse.
– Jonas is kind of the worst, but then again so is Angelica.
– Is she redeemable?
– Will is totally the den mother. But Sun takes care of them, too.
– They’re living together and no one has died yet? WHAT IS THIS MAGIC?
– “To be clear, that is a Star Trek reference.”
– Was the first half of the episode a little slow?
– Reminder: Love conquers all.
– Sun and Mun are EVERYTHING.
– But Mitch has a couple that even eclipses these two.
– Rajan is here.
– Does anyone have plot armor?
– Did anyone think Bodhi was evil?
– Dani was terrifying AND WE LOVED IT.
– The Mr. Hoy cliffhanger was the wooorst.
– It’s a little late to introduce so much lore, but it was kind of necessary.

– The train sequence is a hot mess, but it was still delightful.

– Puck could’ve been a cool character, but they ruined it.
– Too bad we couldn’t get more of Puck’s cluster.

– Did we need to lose a character?
– We kind of forgot about Diego’s family.
– The science isn’t always consistent, but what can you do?
– Wolfgang makes things go boom.
– Is the ending too perfect?
– Mr. Hoy is still alive! Silas was totally there.
– Sun’s ending is NOT too convenient. SHE DESERVES THIS.
– Will meets Riley’s dad and it is delightful.
– Amanita’s parents freaking out Nomi’s mom was perfect.
– But pot brownies fix everything.
– Everybody bangs. But, like, with some class.
