Take Three: Peacemaker

Peacemaker: Season 1, Episode 3 “Chapter 03: Better Goff Dead” (B+)

We’re stuck in the same place as Peacemaker, knowing not much more than he does and finding it out along with him. In the case of the butterfly, seeing how Senator Goff’s family walked like zombies and then ate their honey goop with long tongues was appropriately enlightening, as was seeing the butterfly crawl out of his face after Peacemaker finally shot him. Not having his signature emblem etched onto his weapon did a number on him, and he’s going to have to reconsider whether he’s cut out for the work he’s supposed to be doing. Vigilante had no trouble just getting in there and taking the shots for him, but he ended up getting tortured as a result when he got taken into the house and unmasked while Senator Goff tried to extract information from Peacemaker. Judomaster’s banter with Peacemaker was pretty entertaining, and I don’t think we’ll be seeing any more of him thanks to Economos’ quick actions with no one else around, an occurrence that seems to be happening with startling frequency. I enjoyed Economos and Murn talking about how’s never shared a feeling and then both arguing with Leota about her very correct point that it’s Berenstain Bears, not Berenstein. Leota has some work to do with getting the team to trust and respect her, and if they ever find out who her mother is, she’s just going to have to start over.
