[S1E8] The Long Fuse



At the precinct, Holmes shows Gregson that he's found the impression of the word "Novocaine" on one of the scraps of newspaper used in the bomb. Even though it's not Knowles' handwriting, Gregson believes he's the bomber. Since the threat against Vanowen SC wasn't made public, Holmes believes an employee may be the bomber. Gregson refuses to get him a subpoena so Holmes will need to get the employee records on his own. Watson and Alfredo wait for Holmes at a coffee shop but he texts that he can't make it. Alfredo advises patience and his calm demeanor surprises Watson given his gang appearance. He says he can help Holmes once given the chance.




[S1E8] The Long Fuse



With the ominous promise of change hanging in the air, Tourmaline says goodbye to Vignette who leaves with Rycroft. However, thanks to the radicalized Puck, all fae and puck are to remain inside the city, prompting Imogen and Agreus to be told to head home, which they refuse. Watching the outline of the city grow fainter, they sail away together while Ezra remains in the city alone.


Proof of that is seen when Miles lets her into The Engine only to have her dance within steps of the oblivious Javi. Her ransacking of Cavill's belongings and theft of the photograph is even more short-sighted than usual.


But knowing that her word would never be questioned -- and there are SO many questions that should've been asked -- Layton calculates correctly that providing her with the opportunity to see for herself that Mr. Wilford is not on board will be the spark to light the fuse in First.


So, to have the curtain stripped away in such an ignoble manner and confronted with the humiliating truth of being fooled for so long, her collected cool is smashed, and her rage is solely directed at Cavill.


Cavill: Wilford wasn't who you thought he was, Ruth. He was a fraud.Ruth: He built the Eternal Engine.Cavill: No, he didn't. I did. I built this train, Ruth. I put everything I had into it. Everything. And Wilford sold tickets! He didn't believe it was possible to save humankind and he was never even going to try. He was going to waste it. All he wanted was to live as well as he could, for as long as he could, surrounded by accolades and booze and whores in the Night Car. We wouldn't have made it one revolution.

At the movies, Miguel vents to his friends about not being able to see Sam due to Daniel's hatred of Cobra Kai. As Hawk throws Milk Duds at the girls sitting in front of them, he tells Miguel to just go over to her house and talk to her, which he describes as an "alpha move." Meanwhile, Johnny visits his stepfather Sid and gives back all the money the old man ever gave him, telling Sid he no longer needs him in his life.


Daniel returns home to find that all is well between his wife and mother, thanks to Sam's mediation. As the family sits down to dinner, Miguel arrives unannounced to see Sam happily conversing with Robby. Confused and angry, Miguel walks away.


  • Calling the Old Man Out: Johnny visits Sid to return money to him now that Cobra Kai is thriving to the point of financial stability. Sid claims that his stepson will be back for more, but in response, Johnny quips that he no longer needs his stepfather in his life."I never needed your money. It's just the only thing you had to give. Goodbye, Sid."

  • Did Not Think This Through: Louie really should've thought twice about torching a car belonging to a guy he knows a) is a karate master of an aggressive style, b) has a very short fuse, and c) already loathes his family with a passion. Daniel isn't giving Louie a pass on this one.

  • Foreshadowing: At the family meal it turns out Louie has a bad habit of advertising new business ventures with random people using the LaRusso name to gain traction, which Daniel does not like. At the end Louie brings some biker thugs with him to vandalize Johnny's car in retaliation for the billboard tag, and does so implying Daniel was the one who told them to do it. This sets Johnny off to confront Daniel directly, which happens in the next episode.

  • Generation Xerox: As though Hawk's new aggressive nature didn't make him enough of a next-generation Dutch, he throws Milk Duds at girls in the theater, unwittingly aping Johnny's recollection of Dutch's own teenage antics.

  • Green-Eyed Monster: Miguel starts to show signs of this when he sees the LaRussos enjoying a dinner with Robby.

  • Jerkass Has a Point: While Johnny omits a number of important details about his teenage feud with Daniel (tripping Daniel at soccer practice, running him off a hill, almost killing him with the Halloween beating), he's not entirely wrong that Daniel hotheadedly did more than his share of escalation, too (butting into Johnny's argument with Ali, sucker-punching Johnny after he had asked "Had enough, hero?", turning a hose on Johnny when he was minding his own business smoking weed, etc).

  • Made Out to Be a Jerkass: When Johnny recounts his side of the story about his first encounter with Daniel, he insinuates that Daniel was the asshole for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong when he interrupted Johnny and Ali's conversation.

  • Meaningful Name: "Molting" is what a snake does when it sheds its skin; in this episode, Miguel starts the transition from bullied to bully when he sees Robby eating dinner at the LaRussos', and we see the Green-Eyed Monster start to appear in him.

  • Obnoxious In-Laws: Daniel's mother, Lucille, proves to be one to Amanda.

  • Perspective Flip: Johnny tells Miguel about the events of the first Karate Kid film, showing that from his perspective Daniel was the cocky new kid moving in on the girl he loved and Johnny was just trying to get him to back off. Unreliable Narrator is still in effect, as he leaves out things like pushing Daniel into the sand to talk with Ali before Daniel responds with a sucker punch, or how he was smoking weed in the bathroom before Daniel pulls a water hose prank.

  • Self-Serving Memory: Johnny in his memory leaves out several details, like the fact that Ali had broken up with him before Daniel even moved in, or that some of his antics toward Daniel could have killed the younger boy. Considering how many critical details Johnny left out when detailing the events of his fateful interactions with Daniel, there is reason to doubt his version of events with Ali, from how they met to the break up.

  • Start of Darkness: It in this episode where we see Miguel's dark side begin to emerge thanks to his jealously over Robby eating with the LaRusso family, specifically with Sam.

  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: The lake that Daniel had originally trained at has dried up thanks to the long California drought.

  • Training from Hell: Exaggerated by Johnny to get his students ready for the All Valley Tournament.

"Hey, asshole! Burn in hell!"


DAN SHOTZ While it was such a struggle over the long run and just making sure Jeff was okay, it allowed the story to ferment. Time is sometimes a blessing. We got to spend that much time with it and look at it and figure out those reveals and where they all wanted to go.


It could be Section 31. It could involve a Vulcan from the mirror universe, who would have extra mind control powers, such as the ability to plant telepathic suggestions during mind melds. There might be a Vulcan who has mastered the ability to communicate telepathically over long distances, the way Michael Burnham and Sarek could, without leaving a portion of the katra behind in each target. Or maybe Oh leaves horcruxes in strategic people.


I think that Oh is from the mirror verse, hence the sunglasses, and routinely forces mind melds on people, implants suggestions, then wipes their memories. She might also be leaving a bit of katra behind so that she can telepathically affect them over long distances.


The Hovervan showcased the Top Gear trio's love for bad ideas and chaos. After mating a Ford Transit to a hovercraft, the presenters went about causing as much anarchy as they could along the River Avon. In one stunt, they soaked diners at a riverside restaurant, with the powerful propeller blowing away their tables. The customers appeared furious, with some of them even shaking their fists in anger. 041b061a72
