So, my fellow misfits, are you ready to have another episode unleashed upon your fragile psyches? Because this episode contains a twist that will scar you for life, possibly leading you to do an Oliver from The OC and need intense therapy.
It’ll make you wonder how well we really know the people we sleep with.
But you’ll love it, because it is a Nathan-centric episode. Yippee!
I’ll drink to that!
Before we kick off the recap, I should ask the obvious question: what superpower would you most like to be saddled with if you were suddenly struck by a freak lightning storm while doing community service?
Curtis’ ability to re-wind time doesn’t really appeal to me, because I’d be too wary about going back and accidentally screwing things up and spinning the world off its axis or something. Kelly’s telepathy could heighten your empathy for others and enlighten you about your more taciturn friends and family, but there are just some thoughts you don’t want to know other people are having about you. Simon’s invisibility power could be fun, if I was in close proximity to the CW boys’ locker room, but I think it might be too heady an experience to visually not exist. Alisha’s power is the worst of the lot though – I mean, who wants the power to make people want to rape them?
The ability to body teleport onto the sets of the Vampire Diaries when either Ian or Paul or Michael is shooting a shirtless scene is much more up my alley.
Or maybe something out of leftfield would be more awesome. Like a wine connoisseur superpower where I could show how cultured I am without years of getting red wine headaches (they are a bitch, amiright?).
On a more diabolical day, I love the idea of an Inceptionesque power, where you can implant ideas into other people’s minds. What can I say? I work in PR, which is all about emotional manipulation, so it would make my life easier.
What about you? What superpower would you choose?
