The Red Clothed version of her is one where she's putting on a facade. The Black Clothed version is basically her where she doesn't need to hide behind an illusion. Stop forcing something when deep inside she doesn't really care that much about everything else.

Black Clothed version is basically her with her bankai on at all times.

Bajie dropping Henry off at Lydia's then dipping out quick was funny

The Master sending Minerva for a trip inside herself. She looked good in red and The Widow vs Widow fight was dope.

Cressida giving Pilgrim more than advice this episode, lol . Dude had been cranky and needed relief

Nyx smarting up when it comes Pilgrim. Her stopping his fatal punch with her hand was a cool moment.

can someone remind me - does Sunny have the special power? (but he's forgotten?)

I don't believe so. A good indicator is from earlier in the series, when the Abbotts were tracking down M.K. and their emitter device led them toward Bajie but not Sunny.

But then he was able to activate the chamber as the catalyst, so it could be a reveal coming up.

No but it wouldn't be surprising if Sunny does have some sort of power(s). He's obviously a really important figure for Pilgrim and not just because they're brothers.

Remember that in the comics/manga/graphic novels world that a person's offspring having powers is a huge indicator that their parents have powers of some sort. Shit maybe Sunny has special sperm or something, lol.

Oh right, didn't Ankara say that it's passed down in Season 3, Episode 5? And Bajie makes a comment something along the lines of, "Well, I don't think he got it from Veil."

Edit: From the sparse Wikipedia synopsis: "She tells Sunny someone powerful dispelled his Gift as a child, and in doing so, made him a Catalyst, from where the dark gift flows through him. She also declared that Sunny may be the most powerful of them all."

Caught season 3 on Netflix. Don't think I'll be watching the 4th. When even the fights are getting seriously long in the tooth I'm not really sure what there is left to like.

I was so ready for the new episodes, but felt that they fell a little flat on narrative. I do like the Pilgrim character, but the rest of the plot elements felt like they were trying to focus on too much. I suppose the main thing though is that I felt the fights so far were subpar compared to the first half of Season 3. Though, still better than Season 2. Well, the monk vs. Widow fight was pretty cool at least. Great choreography.

Still, I'm interested to see where they take the plot, and hopeful that they're gearing up for some amazing final fights.

This and American Gods is giving me a visual treat for the ages. Jesus, love this show's use of color outside of the dreary undergrounds (I swear Quinn's lair and the Azra lair are the same sets). And I'm digging the fight scenes more compared to last season and even some of Season 1.

Widow fight scenes are always bad ass
Still wanna see her vs Sunny rematch. It's gotta happen before the end, right? Even if it's more a friendly match or whatever, because it's not like the last one was really all that deep, it was just "you're in my way". So they gotta do it again before the end.

I would like them to do Super Widow and Super Sunny (if he gets the power up)

I found the premiere episodes to be fairly tepid. Action was decent (though it's a tad frustrating that they're still cutting a lot and over relying on slow mo), but the plot moved a little too slowly for what is the final stretch of episodes (sticking the Widow in dreamland for an entire episode was a bad idea, even though the Widow vs Widow fight scene was cool).

And I have no idea what's going on with MK - early on in the series I thought that they were building him into the co-lead alongside Sunny, but he's never really grown out of his petulant supporting character phase. I didn't mind it too much initially, because I assume he'd grow out of it, but now it's starting to wear thin.

What’s the point though - Black Widow is great. But Sunny is the god damned legend
