So to continue jenfullmoon's comment from last episode, the circumstances around the hideout is pretty weird, realistically, right? I get that it's a comic books show, but the fact that they stumbled up on this place with no other squatters is already impressive. But then Chase attracts the city's attention and the workers get scared off by a dinosaur and we expect the city to just leave the mansion alone? Even if power is back on in that area thanks to Chase, I'd imagine those workers would also report what happened to somebody that will at least come take a look.

Other than that quibble I liked this episode. I liked that the fight felt so awkward for the kids because they literally have never tried to find together against someone competent like Tina. Also holy hell Tina really needs to stop using that staff, she went from 0 to murder in like 2 cuts.

All the romance stuff is nice and cute, but I wanted another on screen kiss between Karolina and Nico. More non-cis kissing, especially from teenagers, please!

I could not remember why Alex was separate from everyone else for several episodes for shit.

Poor Gert.

I don't even know what to make of Tina, who in one moment is trying to kill a kid and the next moment is all "oh, shit, my ultimatum didn't work?"

I normally like dreads but for once I prefer Alex's hair with poof. It's more "mad scientist," which seems appropriate for the show.
