I’m beginning to get a little concerned about the League of Evil, y’all. Do they need ELQ because they’re so collectively broke that they can’t even afford a decent lair? Because I’m not sure how else to explain the fact that they are STILL keeping Luke in the basement of a house where they KNOW people are going to keep wandering around.
Speaking of stupidity, I don’t know what was funnier — the look on Julian’s face while Sonny sang Shawn “I’ve yet to actually succeed at a single task you’ve given me” Butler’s praises?
Clearly thinking: “This is the crack team
that’s foiled my every plan?“
…or Lucas trying to guilt Michael into forgiving Morgan by reminding him that his brother is so useless and stupid that he will probably wander out into traffic or climb into the back of a stranger’s van if left to his own devices for too long. (Let’s face it, this is not an inaccurate assessment.)
But nope, sorry. The Morgan conversation was good, but nothing could ever be more hilarious than listening to Sonny seriously try to claim Shawn is in any way competent. (Actual dialog: “He’s not an idiot!”) The fact that Julian restrained himself to only replying that Shawn has a terrible track record instead of laughing hysterically for five minutes straight says a lot about his self-control.
Good thing for all the criminals in town that pretty much no one else is operating at full logic levels either! And good thing for me that there is no level of blatant police incompetence that could ever stop me from enjoying these two gorgeous goobers making puppy dog eyes at each other:
ANNA: Look, I know we haven’t always seen eye to eye. but I really respect you. I think you are an excellent officer.
JORDAN: My resume may not be as extensive as yours, but I know you’re the best I’ve ever seen.
You know that was some hardcore flirting because “the best Jordan’s ever seen” recently dropped an international terrorist in a hole in someone else’s lawn and then forgot to check on him for a year. And Anna’s “excellent officer” has spent a year not figuring out who she’s actually working for while literally sleeping with the enemy.
JUST KISS ALREADY, YOU TWO.
