    Tjhis looks like they are continuing along with good storytelling and fun. I really like how the season opens up not focussing on she-ra but rather the important developments with Glimmer. Her character arc seems much more important in the present plot and it shows. And OMG Catra is going full on awesome. I know she is the villain but normally they would not play this character up to a boss like that, but she is a bad ass villain.

    Oh, and interesting note I saw a number of she-ra cosplayers at AWA, but none of them were white. That was awesome in that I am glad that people are identifying with the hero despite the color and finding the show inclusive. Also, they either wore wigs or went with natural hair which IMO shows they are not seeing the need to alter themselves harshly though hair straightening chemical abuse to be the character. At least it seemed like they were not trying to be white.

    A lot of the more disillusioned Voltron fans, having been shafted by their feeble attempts as rep, gravitated to She-Ra in it's early seasons. The rabid Voltron bashers who didn't actually enjoy the show andaonly used SPOP to bash on the former have finally seemed to gone quiet on Tumblr, leaving the discussion to the rest of us.

    But yeah, a whole lotta twists and turns. The central part of the show being that there's no whole good or bad characters, only people who can choose to be better than what they were and to break out of toxicity, which honest? I find far more refreshing that "people good" or "people bad."

    One of the things this show does best is find ways to bust on itself. Swiftwind was making some great comments about the good guys, but the new shapeshifter has gotten me multiple times by ripping on our heroes with catra. It gives you a sort of a connection with the bad guys when you can laugh with them when they nail the dorkiness of the main heroes. When he made fun of bo not having any shirts that covered his abs I had to pause to stop laughing. Catra and him are the only two characters not so caught up in their own shit that they screw everything up. Even Catra sort of gets too caught up in her shit.
