I just watched the episode because I was out last night and the whole time I was thinking that we're finally going to find out some secrets about the team members. Though no one's past came up, we did get to see new characters, action scenes, and new possibilities.
The beginning scene was very interesting, the audience was introduced to the new villain Harm. To me Harm didn't look scary, he just looked like he too was dressing up for Halloween lol. Plus the whole "third point of view speaking" he was very....non scary for me. But he was an interesting character and I wondered how Artemis and Zatanna was going to defeat him. Also thanks to YJ fan Kayla G. I would of never known he was quoting Beowulf and I studied Beowulf in my British Literature class and still didn't recognize it lol I'm not surprised though, I hated that class :p
The next scene with Wally, Conner, and Megan getting ready for the Halloween party at Happy Harbor High was my most favorite scene. I loved Wally's costume, I thought he did good as Teen Wolf! Megan's costume was a duh lol she would dress like bride, but hey at least she was a zombie bride. Now Conner's costume was hilarious ahaha poor Conner. I thought it was cute when Megan was dressing him as a mummy <3 Which reminds me of Zatanna and Artemis' costumes, I liked Artemis' costume, the vampire look was not what I expected from her, but Zatanna's costume was predictable, she was a witch right?
Now I became confused during the scene when Zatanna asks Artemis if SuperMartian were a couple. Artemis says no but then sees them flirting with each other, she then gets upset. Does Artemis like Conner? Or she is pissed that Megan didn't tell her? My dad told me maybe it's because Artemis likes Megan....but I don't think Cartoon Network would allow a lesbian couple to be shown on their network. So I think it's either the first two options and hopefully Artemis is mad that Megan didn't tell her because I want Artemis to like Wally <3
Oh and before I forget I felt bad for Captain Marvel lol he's always left out!
I want to write about the scene with Batman, Robin, Aqualad, Red Arrow, and Red Tornado. I'm happy they are trying to find out who is the mole and let out the bag that Artemis isn't Green Arrow's niece. Batman thinks Superboy might be the mole because no one really knows what happened to SB when he was in Cadmus. I do somewhat agree that SB could be the possible mole and be giving out info without even knowing it but I'm hoping that's not true. Red Arrow was suspicious of Artemis because of her mysterious past and I think he also was suspicious of Miss Martian. When we all heard more about Miss M's past, like how she only met Martian Manhunter 5 months before she came to Earth and that Martian Manhunter has a lot of nieces and nephews, I kind of felt like maybe she had the more possibilities of being the mole but then again she's so nice and good it's really hard to figure if she's the mole or not. Aqualad and Robin seemed distraught over the whole thing and I like that Aqualad was sticking up for the team!
The fighting with Harm, Artemis, and Zatanna was fun to watch :] I really like Artemis, I feel with her character fans can relate to her and plus she's bad ass! Zatanna needs a lot of more practiced in my opinion, I felt like Artemis had to really take control but I do like Zatanna :) I wonder if Robin knew she was around the cave? Though I don't think Harm was a scary villain, his background or past was crazy! Like I can't believe the girl who kept saying "secret" was his sister. That was surely a twist at the end. You know I change my mind, Harm is a scary villain, especially since he did some psychotic shit and killed his own sister. Towards the end after Zatanna and Artemis defeated Harm and promised the ghost girl that they would give her a proper burial, Artemis almost slipped when talking about sisters and how Harm killed his sis, and she seemed very distraught, obviously she was thinking about Cheshire and I think Artemis really cares for her. I was hoping Artemis would open up to Zatanna and Zatanna knew Artemis was lying when she said she didn't have any secrets but I guess we'll just have to wait till Artemis wants to tell about her life. I do think Zatanna and Artemis are going to become a great friends!
Episode 18 was very interesting! Some of my predictions were wrong and some were right but overall there was a lot I didn't expect to happen. What are everyone else's thoughts on this episode? Write them down in the comment section. :]
