Finally. Finally! Badass Ghost Annie from the ends of S1/S2 returns
Finally! I knew that was the right season for that, as it started with a reminder of who's (potentially) the most powerful creature there. (We already had it spelled out on this forum years ago: in this show's universe, a vampire can easily kill one dozen men; a transformed werewolf can easily kill one dozen vampires; a ghost can easily kill everything on its path
I liked that Hal, who's an Old One and all, was actually scared by what she did to Kirby. It wasn't even fighting, it looked like some freaking, Dr. Manhattan-like, "I command your atomic bonds to break"!
She was actually scary tonight.
Not to mention super-hot. Almost hard to recognize in that light and with that expression on her face. And Lenora Crichlow should really wear light-colored contact lenses.
Both Tom and Hal lunged out of the door and physically attacked Kirby -- a ghost! And he was physically attackable
They are, by other supernatural creatures (of course they can just teleport away if they want). Annie was struggling to be material to normal people, never to supes.
Future!Eve (if she is, in fact, Eve)
I never had any doubt about this. Doesn't she said it herself in Episode 1? Like, I'm going to kill myself? And also, one of her soldier called her "the Saviour" (or whatever) and recounted how he was excited to know her, or something.
is trying to manipulate the past to kill her baby self. However, the only reason Hal came into contact with Annie, Tom, and baby Eve in the first place is because of Future Eve's manipulations.
Not from the future, though. She had first to die, go to the other side, then started manipulating. Her storyline might have already changed, but I assume she can't be affected by the changes from where she is. Plus, she's already dead in her storyline, so it's not that this would matter too much, unless by bringing Hal to the house she will have already accomplished the mission along the road (you can argue whether she's able to watch all her life moments simultaneously. But maybe it's important that she dies while she's still less than is 1-year old, and not 2 or 5 years from now).
Why not keep pushing Hal into giving in to his dark side in the hopes of killing off baby Eve, if she at all thinks Hal is the key here?
Maybe it's not a vampire that has to kill her. She saw something in the new part of the scroll, something that pushed her to think that they did it all wrong. But maybe it's not just about her not living to grow up. (By the way, she has to have had a hell of a life and education, if she grew up to be so tough and strong-willed to sacrifice herself that coldly).
I like your theories about Eve and Ha (especially her discovering to be the Antichrist instead of the War Child). Maybe Hal was one of the leaders of the apocalypse in 2037, and now Eve is trying to change his destiny too, but that wouldn't gel with her making him lose his support system through Kirby (and since she ordered him to kill the baby pronto, therefore presumably dooming herself to oblivion, it doesn't feel like she was planning to rescue Hal later. Maybe she wants
for Hal to lose control in 2012?).
Kirby's victory dance was simultaneously funny and creepy. He had some old school disco moves happening.
That actor was hammy but very effective. I've also liked his Scooby Doo ghost monologue, and that he longed for the "terrible movies" they would have made of him if he had been a more famous serial killer.
As for Annie and her power, my feeling has always been that although she has a tremendous amount of power, she represses it
She said "I have this rage inside". Hope we will see it unleashed more and more! (After all, the ghostly sfx aren't surely the most expensive, and they can be very enjoyable nonetheless).
They know damn well they're missing a third of the skin, why are they assuming they can read it correctly?
Are you doubting the VAMPIRE RECORDER? :)
