Most watchmen like episode
30 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is my favorite episode because of the great character development. It is very Watchmen like in that the story is told through flashback and current events both synchronizing so that feelings displayed or actions happening have a double meaning.

It is also very much like issue five of Watchmen, Fearful Symmetry, in that the episode is symmetrical. Terry spends the first half of the episode trying to permanently distance himself from his friends, his girlfriend and Batman. By the end of the episode he is trying to make stronger, more empathetic connections with these people. He goes from feeling like Bruce Wayne's hubristic backup plan, to being an ideal that is better than his predecessor in some ways.

The nicest touch is the what happens twice in the episode with the pill bottle.

I also love the scene where Batman stays with Ace and how he has said to countless supervillains who have had terrible experiences in their childhoods that he knows how they feel, but Ace is the first to know that he is telling the truth because she can see in his mind.

Finally, nothing beats a Timm drawn on Black production and this one is perfect.
