These cliffhangers… After every single episode, I’m convinced that the next episode is going to be awesome. They always leave us hanging, either with a battle approaching or, for the last episode, a stowaway holed up on board.
But every single time this ends in an anticlimax. This week, they talked to the stowaway, and just invited her on board.
So this week’s cliffhanger has left me wanting more once again, but I fear I will only be disappointed once again.
Arrival of the Princess
At first, the princess seemed boring. A wealthy, beautiful little princess.
The most popular girl in school, with legions of crazed fans.
She does get a few points for running away from home to search for a ghost ship.
Then, when she snuck in the backseat of the car for the ride to the airport (how DID she do that?!) my opinion of her began to rise.
But what really sold me is her impeccable fashion sense. I hope she quits her job as a princess and becomes a pirate.
Nurse, I Hate You
This woman just pisses me off so much. If I knew her in real life she would be my arch-nemesis.
She’s COMPLETELY USELESS, but talks like she knows everything. Recall when the princess arrived. She acts like Marika isn’t being decisive enough, so what does she do? She says, “I don’t know anything. Does anyone know anything?” When no one answers, she orders them to “Get the information quickly.” Then she looks at Marika like she’s saying, “Hey, learn from this how to be a good captain.”
I might be projecting some of this, but I think my main problem with her is simply the way she talks. I absolutely can’t stand her.
How did he survive this, much less get in the car?
Marika is learning how to be a captain quickly. Now THAT is a pirate’s grin!
I liked this shot of them after the drive to the airport as well.
