"And until we meet again boys and girls, know that wherever evil lurks in all its myriad forms, I'll be there with the hammers of justice to fight for decency and defend the innocent. Goodnight." - Batman
I'm pretty sure Ghia'ta was made up for the show like Razer and Aya.
Giancarlo Volpe tweeted she may be Aga'po's niece but she's also half-Maltusian...
Volpe also reports4.1 in our target demographic for the Star Sapphire episode! Which means boys 6-11 will watch a show about pink lanterns
Nice to see Carol transform in Star Sapphire. Although Brief she was used well.
Wouldn't surprise me that in a future episode the Queen Zammaron tries more brainwashing
on Carol as revenge on Hal.
Also love the musical score for the Zammarons. Had a rather haunted-love sound to it.
Jennifer Hale was more than brilliant as Carol and Star Sapphire. I hope we get to see more of her if the series gets a second season.
Something about the pacing of this episode kind of throws me off, lest of all the ending with the Queen's niece when she claims she has much to teach and it just cuts off like it's about to go on commercial break.
Otherwise, it's the nice character moments I really like. Poor Kilowog. He left his girlfriend, but even though he misses her, he has a chance to be happy, then BAM! The Star Sapphires nab her. This will interesting to see when they meet up again and I hope they meet up again. Poor Kilowog deserves happiness. So does Razer. Dang, he was slowly starting to tolerate Aya, but now that she's essentially taken his wife's face, will their bond deteriorate? This guy goes from one big issue to another. Only Hal has a happy conclusion. I love that Carol understands what true love is and that she accepts Hal, his secret identity, and mission. I really hope she regains the Pink Lantern Ring again; it's too good of a plot not to!
You can read the page about the SS from Blackest Night #0 here:
So it stands to reason they can 'port a new recruit to home base if their love is there as part of their love-based ability. It's not like they can grab just anyone or go just anywhere. It has limits so I'm fine with the power.
Other colors can be read about:
I don't know if that would be considered spoil-y or not, so your choice.
I don't think it would have worked without Carol as the one to do it. They could have tried with Killowog's girlfriend but that would make her more powerful than Carol and that doesn't work for canon as Carol is usually depicted as the strongest of the Sapphires.
I like that it wasn't too tied up as Giata still has to teach them, so we don't know how long it will be. It probably won't be in this 13 ep season, maybe the next 13.
Been slowly going through this series with my sister. Since I didn't comment on this episode the first time around, here are a couple thoughts:
-How cute was it to see Razer and Aya fighting back-to-back? I love those two. I agree with the others previously who said that Aya has turned into a fantastic character, clearly more than just a "soulless machine" as Aga'po put it. Razer makes a perfect foil for her too.
-We now know that the trip from Earth to where they were was the longest teleportation they'd ever done and had side effects, but it would've been nice to see an extra little indication of that in this episode. Maybe Aga'po straining a bit to get it done?
-And oh yeah, I could listen to Jennifer Hale's voice all day.
I loved how the pink ring provides a cool costume and a hair extension!
Jennifer Hale did a great job with Carol's voice and I liked her "I'm going to miss the boots" line when she returned the ring.
Too bad Mattel cancelled plans for an action figure line for this show. Aya and Carol (Star Sapphire and/or business suit) would have looked nice on my shelf.
