This might be my favorite episode so far, mostly because of Future-Simon's glow-up, and because, not only do they have Superhoodie's HQ look like a scaled-down version of the temporary Batcave from The Dark Knight, and not only do they show F-Simon working out, but they even have very Batmanesque theme music playing while they're there.

I also dug Vince's power (although a power that literally leaves a mark on the people it's controlling would seem to have limits), and, even though I was frustrated that, again, the fight could have been so much easier if Simon had cloaked beforehand, the nut-bomb was a funny idea (The Boys will steal this idea eventually) and I thought of ways that Vince's power could be used for good, if, you know, he could be convinced not to be a dick.

So cool. Surprisingly. It worked.

This episode is when I really started to love this show.

After seeing Benedict Cumberbatch in Atonement, I couldn’t watch anything he was in for years, until finally Sherlock blotted out his creepy, creepy character. Same with Iwan Rheon and GoT so I really liked his shower scene. He became a whole new person, Ramsey who?
