[S3E6] About Face


Towards the end of the episode, Soldier Boy, Billy Butcher and Hughie Campbell all faced off against Homelander, and although the antagonist was able to make his escape at the end it was still a highly dramatic affair.




[S3E6] About Face



One fan described the battle as "Probably the best fight scene in a comic book property for about a decade" while another went even further by calling it "One of the best fight scenes in the history of television. "


Afterward, Jamie meets his connect, Lizzy, in a clandestine spot; she is concerned about the acid attacks though he replies saying he took her advice: not eliminate but scare away and incorporate the rival gang. Lizzie also refuses his advances, saying that their affair was a one-time thing. She believes Jamie is looking for a mother figure in her. He assures her the gang was is under control.


Jaq and Kieron struggle to obtain new workers as the local kids are either frightened or focused on school. Kieran is told off for his approach and told to try harder. Lauryn attempts to get the gossip on Dushane from Shelley, then ridicules her sister Jaq about Maude as she thinks the name is old-fashioned.

I started Wherever I Look back in 2011 and have aimed to be that friend who loves watching various forms of media and talking about it. So, from bias, strong opinions, and a perspective you may not have thought about, you'll find that in our reviews.


In the wake of last week's news that the current president is not running again, the Roys descend upon the secretive political gathering where the Republican nominee for president is to be effectively anointed (the primary process, in which voters believe they are the ones who choose the nominee, aside). Siobhan is horrified when Roman talks Logan into supporting Mencken, whom she considers a budding fascist, but is it enough to make Siobhan turn on the family? Naaaah. She just wants to stand far enough away that she can feel better about herself.


Logan's priorities are to avoid DOJ prosecution and go after tech because it's a threat to his company. But he also seems to still be trying to punish Shiv for making him seem unnecessary last week. And he always wants to have his ring kissed (which is really about his fondness for people who will humiliate themselves for him), which is why he goes through the whole thing about demanding Boyer bring him a Coke, and then pretending he was kidding. He's also more and more familiar with Kerry, who is now willing to insert herself into his conversations.


One of the things I find interesting about this week is contemplating whether Logan was serious, ever, about proposing they pick Connor. I assume not, and I'm still 80 percent sure of that. But it's not like that level of power doesn't appeal to Logan, given that it would certainly solve all his regulatory problems.


Kendall is such a jerk in this episode. As we've discussed, he's spent this season lining up women to advise him who he ignores and mistreats. Certainly, he's not happy about Lisa telling him that he doesn't have quite the ironclad case against Waystar that he thought he did based on the papers he has, but that's not her fault!


Things get worse for Greg when he starts telling the story about suing Greenpeace and finds himself a local hero at the conference. You might expect Greg to be able to pull some shred of his morality out of the fire with his statements to the family that he's not 100 percent comfortable with the way they're trying to pick the next president in a hotel room, but all that really means in this case is that he knows better than they do why what they're doing is bad. It's not like he's going to do anything about it. Instead, he winds up hoisted on the shoulders of some of the conference revelers. And that seems like it would be disconcerting.


I may wind up being in the minority on this, but I didn't care for the literal political storyline here that much. I actually like Succession less when it's as explicit about its connections to our current crises as this episode is. Roman mocking Shiv and sarcastically threatening to get "cis white male stank" on her is just another day in any internet comment section. And I think the bit where they think Boyer is a secret vegetarian is just a little ... you know. A little '90s, let's say. I think you can establish that rich people sit around making cynical decisions about politics in ways that are a little less explicit than this.


Mesk is basically Worf (Michael Dorn) from The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, an outsider raised by humans who has responded by leaning hard into the performance of an archetype of his birth culture. Worf was always a fascinating character because he got into thorny questions about cultural identity and performance. He knew everything there was to know about Klingon culture, but it was all academic. In some sense, he was overcompensating for his background.


Matthew is still concerned about the running of the estate. He tells Robert the capital of the estate is leaking into the cracks because of bad management. Robert avoids all conversations about the estate and resents the implication that a fool and his money are soon parted. Even thought Matthew never said as much.


Putting the central premise and mystical elements aside, The Leftovers is a series about systems of belief; what are the things people turn to explain the inexplicable and why? Whether you believe a giant egg in a volcano is going to hatch a monster that will end the world or that a series of aboriginal songs are the key to stopping the impending flood of the earth, belief systems help make sense of the narratives that we construct for ourselves and serve as a coping mechanism when we come face to face with things we cannot understand.


Thomas is soon lead to a car with Father Hughes who tells him he has his child. Hughes tells Thomas to blow up the train himself and that there must be casualties. He also tells Thomas he's found out about the tunnel digging, and that all of the jewels, including the Faberge Egg, will be given to Hughes.


Thomas starts accusing everyone in his immediate family Ada, John, Polly and Arthur telling that any one of them had leaked the information out as they were the only ones he told about the Faberge Egg. Thomas in the end tells Polly it must be Reuben Oliver, her new lover, as she must've leaked it when she was drunk. Polly in her anger takes a knife and tears her portrait painting to shreds.


Michael tells Thomas not to shoot Alfie as it would be bad for business. As the heated argument continues, Alfie reprimands Thomas to shoot him like an honourable man, recognising how many innocent people Thomas has killed himself. Thomas tells Michael to get Inspector Moss. As Michael leaves, Alfie confides in Thomas that he actually did not know about the abduction of Charles.


Michael finds Father Hughes with Charles and points a gun to his head. However, due to hesitation, Hughes catches him off guard and knocks the gun out of his hand and starts punching him. Michael takes out a knife and slashes his eye and as he has Hughes pinned down, the two Peaky Blinders (who Michael told to stay in the car) come in to shoot Hughes. Michael stops them and says he has to do it himself. Michael plunges the knife into Hughes' neck and kills him. Michael brings Charles home where Polly sees the blood stains on his face.


Arthur is hesitating to set off the explosives on the train, but when John offers to do it for him, Arthur refuses and says that he will complete the task Thomas set him to do. Just as he is about to, Finn comes running behind the train to say that Charlie is safe. However it is too late, and the train blows into pieces. They then proceed to burn off any remaining pieces of evidence.

Hello again, dear listeners. Thank you for joining us for this engaging episode of Pedagogo, where you all and I get to learn from an experienced expert on restorative approaches to academic integrity, Dr. James Orr. As you know, season three of Pedagogo has been all about big ideas and trends in education. And one of the big issues that has come up this past year with COVID-19 in play and remote testing gaining prominence has been the issue of academic honesty and integrity.


So, we are here to learn from you about what we can and should do as educators to facilitate and promote academic integrity. I know we want to hear your thoughts and gain your insights about best practices around how to address violations as well.


But before we begin this conversation, let me tell our listeners a little bit about you. Dr. James Earl Orr Jr. is a senior higher education administrator with over 16 years of experience serving on the leadership teams in academic affairs, student affairs, and strategic enrollment management across multiple universities.


Right. So, if you were to translate this to then to higher ed, how does, how does it translate? Are we talking about students who possibly engage in violations as, as then having to explain or justify their actions? Could you draw the parallels for us?


So, what I like to do is to think about it as taking the concepts of restorative justice, this idea that we want to be learning-centered, and that we want to have an opportunity to be restored back to the community and doing that through a conversation and saying, how do we establish our responses to academic dishonesty around those, those big overarching principles? 041b061a72
