There’s a full cast of characters when both Josie and the Pussycats and the Archies travel to Tokyo for a concert with the other band from Riverdale set to be the Pussycats’ opening act. Although it’s a bit of a struggle to find room for everyone, there are some fun moments here including Val and Veronica bonding over clothes. The trouble starts, however, when the comic begins to fracture that hard-won peace between Josie and Alexandra.

game-of-thrones-season-twoGiven the ending of Season One in which Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is literally reborn in fire while returning dragons to the world, I had high hopes for Season Two of Game of Thrones to raise its game. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Daenerys has become my favorite character, but due to circumstances beyond her control mean she spends nearly all of the show’s Second Season begging and whining (“Where are my dragons!”). Thankfully, by the end of the season, she seems to throw off her belligerent tantrums and take another step forward in her goal.

It’s the season’s penultimate episode which is the most memorable. While previously skirting around the larger battles around control for the Seven Kingdoms, the attack on King’s Landing provides the most action we’ve seen in the series so far. The episode also offers a big hero moment for Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). I can’t say the same for the boring Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) whose goal to lay siege to the city ends in disaster thanks to Tyrion’s cunning and bravery.

Negotiations between the representatives of independent worlds turn out to be just the distraction Ryo (Alex Mallari Jr.) needs to put his plan into action. First, using his new programmer, he hacks into the Android‘s (Zoie Palmer) programming giving his team control of the ship and a way on-board using the Transfer Transit pods. The crew’s former teammate is a little less murderous than we’ve seen him recently, choosing not to harm his former friends. However, his inability to capture Five (Jodelle Ferland) proves to be his undoing as the girl hides aboard the ship and works to take back control of the Raza.

batman-2016-27-good-grief

“The War of Riddles and Jokes” continues, although without the flashback narration from Batman. This time the central character is not Batman, nor the Joker, nor the Riddler, but an inventor and mechanic of sorts who gets trapped in the games between the other three parties. The ridiculously-named Charles Brown is used as a pawn by the Dark Knight Detective and the Riddler both to draw out the Joker. The plan blows up in everyone’s faces, and costs the low-rent thug what he prizes above all else.
