[S2E13] Begin the Begin
At the same time, Meredith mopes about Derek, whose hair is in far better shape than his marriage to Addison. She really hates living in the trailer... and the fact that he is still into Meredith. But she agrees to ride it out. Richard, meanwhile, visits Dr. Ellis Grey in the home she's staying in, and recommends to Meredith that she begin a new program for Alzheimer's patients.
They begin discussing the friends they left back home, such as Eclair and others, as they continue heading on their journey. The discussion is interrupted by the beginning of the sunrise, which makes for an unforgettably beautiful scene in the otherwise disappointing episode.
Raphtalia suddenly begins laughing, remembering their time in Mikakage shopping for clothes together. This begins the first recap-esque scene of the episode, which at least offers some new content for viewers to digest.
Kizuna also picks up on this and offers to help Raphtalia shop and dress, enlisting Rishia for the same. This begins a montage of changing outfits, complete with lolicon jokes and unrequested fan service.
Returning to the beach, she makes friends with a ball that is on the island with her, drawing a face on it in true Castaway style. This seems to help her mental health as she begins boiling seawater to get salt to season her food. This parlays into the scene in which fans are introduced to Kizuna, as seen in Episode 7 of this season, before returning to the present.
Host Shayna Terrell of the Center for Black Educator Development and Dr. Carr begin the episode by defining what "a quality education" is and looks like in practice and whether or not it is actually a constitutional right.
While Skyler and Junior continue monitoring the donation counter on SaveWalterWhite.com, Walt calls Saul and demands to know where he can find Jesse. Mike drives Walt to a dilapidated trap house known as "The Shooting Gallery". Against Mike's advice, Walt enters and locates a passed-out Jesse. As Walt insists on getting him help, Jesse begins to sob in the belief that he killed Jane. A saddened Walt is conscience-stricken by Jesse's anguish.
There was so much happening in the conclusion that it's difficult to figure out where to start, but it's never a bad idea to begin with Holden. I loved seeing him come full circle as the captain of the Roci and how he was changed through and through because of his experience with the Protomolecule. When he finally came face to face with one of the Proto-beings, it was really rewarding. That scene where he was pinned against the wall was intense.
Renard enters the trailer to find the key, but he can't find it. In the station, they find footage of the hotel where Monroe (face unseen) is followed by the Hundjägers. Monroe calls Rosalee (Bree Turner) so they can work on a cure for Juliette and Renard. Renard visits Juliette and they continue kissing, something Nick is watching from distance. He gets out of the car, planning on confronting them but receives a call from Monroe, who claims that Rosalee can find a way to cure them. In the house, they begin agreeing or disagreeing about having sex, so Juliette takes Renard's gun and begins shooting in the house so he is forced to leave.
Nick McHatton from TV Fanatic, gave a 4.0 star rating out of 5, stating: "'Face Off' was really a culmination of payoffs all of us have been waiting over a year for. Juliette and Renard's actions are beginning to make some sense, Adalind continues to be a great villain, and, most importantly, Nick and Renard finally tip their hands to each other."
Josie Campbell from TV.com wrote, "But what really made 'Face Off' great was that it got right back to the fast-paced info-dump from the beginning of Season 2. Secrets were revealed in a way that felt satisfying and also gave rise to more questions; characters were thinking as fast as they were reacting, crashing headfirst into the changing status quo. Though I'd be happier if Monroe and Nick had more gradually pieced together the Hexenbiest/Juliette's Memory Loss puzzle over a few episodes instead of figuring it out all at once, once things started to dawn on them, a lot of fun was had."
To investigate the matter of princess poisoning Oshtor deployed Ougi to the fields. He is now in stealth mode and trying to collect all the information he can. Ougi brings the information of Kiwrus troops that are approaching Ennakamuy. They are ambushed by the animes therefore, Oshtor deployed an army of 500 soldiers as an aid to their allied groups. Now the battle begins!
The battle is about to begin. Oshtor and his troops entered the battlefield to help the troops of Kiwrus. We can expect a battle till death in the next episode. It seems Oshtor and his troops with the upper hand in the battle rest we will see in the upcoming episode.
Pulaski theorizes that as they move closer to the time in which the other Picard left, his internal body clock is realigning, and that when normal time intersects with the time in which he left, for that instant he would begin to function normally and there will be two Picards. Troi begins to feel emotion from the future Picard and realizes that his one wish is to urgently leave the Enterprise.
Still on course to Endicor but not far from a meeting with fate, the other Picard is now more coherent. The present Picard begins to question him, becoming frustrated at his counterpart's abandonment of the Enterprise. Troi tries to reason with Picard, saying that the other is afraid. Picard, now disgusted at his other self, denies all familiarity with him and leaves sickbay. Pulaski then tells Troi that she will relieve the present Picard of duty should his judgment become impaired which Troi assures her it won't. Pulaski hopes the counselor is right about that and Troi leaves sickbay.
In order to avoid being pulled in, La Forge has to hold the warp engines at 30% just to maintain their position. After being probed by the center of the vortex, Picard decides to stay and investigate, but then begins to worry that staying may have been the mistake which caused the destruction of the Enterprise. He decides to leave immediately, but trying to escape the vortex only results in the Enterprise being pulled further inside.
The black Dalek demands that the trio identify which is least important which Rose refuses to answer, but Dr Singh volunteers, knowing he is of no importance compared to the two time travellers. The black Dalek orders him to kneel down, saying that they need to know everything they can about current Earth history. Singh begins to respond but the Daleks say that speech is not required. Three of the Daleks place their plungers around his skull and stretch his brain. A few minutes later, his mutilated corpse drops to the floor. Rose yells at the Daleks that they didn't need to kill him, but they state they didn't need him alive either.
In the area the Cybermen were hiding in, sparks and screams are coming from the Torchwood personnel as they are converted into Cybermen. Yvonne explains to Jackie that their brains are going to be placed in the Cybermen shells, angering Jackie who screams that Torchwood have doomed all of humankind. Yvonne is taken away, and she willingly walks into the upgrading stations to be upgraded. Shortly after, the Cybermen receive an update that the original Cyber-Leader has been killed and begin to download its files into another Cyberman unit. Jackie uses this distraction to slip away from the Cybermen and escape down a stairwell.
Dalek Thay returns to the Sphere room, suggesting that they should concentrate on the Genesis Ark before attempting to battle the Cybermen. The black Dalek orders the other Daleks to begin the awakening and all four attach the ends of their manipulator arms to four spheres which are positioned on the Ark's four sides.
Dalek Sec gloats that Time Lord science will ensure the supremacy of the Daleks, and orders the Doctor to open the Ark. The Doctor laughs off the suggestion and produces his sonic screwdriver. He explains that, while it cannot kill, wound or maim, it is very good for opening doors, a fact he demonstrates by using it to explosively open all the doors leading into the sphere chamber. The Cybermen enter and open fire on the Daleks using the modified energy rifles, temporarily disrupting Dalek Thay's shields and weapons and giving the Doctor and humans time to escape. However, the Daleks quickly adapt and regain control of their weapons and return fire without mercy, concentrating their attacks on the Cybermen. As the Doctor and the humans rush out of the chamber, Mickey is knocked into the Ark by a damaged Cyberman and his hand presses against its surface. After the Daleks easily exterminate the Cybermen, the Ark is primed, steam gushing from the bottom vents, but Dalek Sec says that it needs a space of thirty square miles to activate. The Daleks begin to escort it out of the chamber.
The Daleks and the Ark move into the Torchwood storage area, battling another force of Cybermen. Some human soldiers break in and add to the chaos. The Doctor stumbles into the area as well, grabbing two magna-clamps before leaving. As the Daleks blast their way through all opposition, the new Cyber-Leader calls for reinforcements, commanding all Cybermen to report to the tower. Dalek Sec overrides the roof mechanism, and elevates upward with the Ark. As the Doctor and the others watch, the Ark opens above London and starts spinning, disgorging Dalek after Dalek. The Doctor realises that the "Time Lord science" Dalek Sec referred to was the fact that the Ark is bigger inside than outside: the Ark is a prison ship, containing millions of Daleks. As hundreds of Daleks line up in aerial formation, an army of Cybermen marches through the street. The Cybermen deploy their wrist blasters and begin firing on the Daleks. The Daleks and Cybermen begin fighting on a much wider scale, with the human race caught in the crossfire. 041b061a72
