Is there just one more episode?

 

This season is definitely weaker than the first. It feels like it’s constantly building up to something but nothing happens 

 

The best bit was the start with the radicalised geek killing the store keeper. Sadly based on many a true story

How did she blow up the FBI lady’s head? She could only use the power once out of her cell.

 

That's why I'd discounted her.  I think she'll have a

I’ve assumed it’s still to be revealed as it’s far too embedded in key moments for it not be significant.

 

But if it turns out to have no plot significance whatsoever and has been some kind of mass marketing stunt that we don’t even realise what it has made us as viewers do then that would also be acceptable :lol:

Isn't it just a cult reference, don't drink the Fresca/koolaide

it's Edgar.

But outside of him, I'm not sure anyone makes sense. So someone new would be fine too.

Is Black Noire dead? Because it shows Maeve just casually sitting at the hearing after trying to kill him with an Almond Chew

Quite possibly. If it was Vought, then it was an act of sheer desperation as they will look highly suspicious right now.

I can totally see the church of the collective both saving and somewhat fucking Vought over in the same breath, though. It feels like, as Vought is making inroads into the U.S government, then the church is trying to do the same with Vought by filling the Seven with its ‘flipped’ heroes. I don’t think they’ll be able to hold onto A-Train, though, as he’s just enough of an independent thinker to be hazardous to them. 
 

Pretty sure Black Noir isn’t dead, but he could certainly be in a bad way. Depending on how long his anaphylaxis lasted for he could have some organ damage. It’s not clear that he’ll know who did it, though. Maeve choked him from behind and by the time she talked to Starlight he was already in shock. Any memories of the event could be shot to shit. Tbh, I think from a writing stand-point it was decided he’d had enough screen time this season, but we needed a reason for him to be absent from whatever ruck will be kicking off next episode. Would be surprised if we never see him again.
