Stranger Danger was, I guess I can't say it wasn't what I expected but it was sure the bare minimum.
I like Eclipsa a lot so far, she's obviously grooming Star but not being so obviously evil about it that it's unreasonable for Star to want to hear her out. She just slips little things through like "I did what I had to do (for me)."
This episode is definitely the worst use and portrayal of the Magic High Commission yet, they're a bunch of bumbling stooges who can't be taken seriously at all. It works for Rhombulus but I don't know what the other two are doing.
Omnitraxus Prime still seems like a cool guy and he got a good line in about Eclipsa but he's so damn underdeveloped compared to the others.
Hekapoo's personality defaults to "bitch" which is fine, but what's not fine is how much it can vary. Generally she's been portrayed as the sort of de facto leader, fiery and demanding, willing to confront Moon aggressively. In "Running With Scissors" she was much more a laid-back trickster type, which was excusable because maybe that's just how she is in her free time. In this episode she's stoic and clinical, like she's Moon's secretary or something. Maybe she's being extra professional but that's not really her type, and I at least expected her to say something to Star when she attacked Rhombulus.
I'm already sick of retard!Glossarcyk.
The status quo with Eclipsa is just kind of weird.
They let Eclipsa stay in the tower above the rose garden, with just a bunch of locks on the door and two ordinary guards. This is really all the security afforded to the Queen of Darkness?
And after they freaked the fuck out just because Star was alone with her for a few minutes, stating Eclipsa could corrupt her body and mind with evil just by being around her, she's then allowed to visit her unsupervised? Is this going to be a regular thing? I sure don't mind more Eclipsa but this was just handled really sloppily.
5/10 bad episode, only saving grace was Eclipsa
