A Lifetime of Love in 1 Episode
28 May 2018 | by KolorgasmSee all my reviews

I can't describe how much I love this episode. I'm glad to see that it's the season's highest rated episode. The Magicians should write more episodes like this. Ever since that threesome with Margo, Eliot and Q on Season 1, I just had a feeling that is not going to be the last, and I can't believe, for once in my life, I was right! It's been fun to watch these crazy misfits go on their separate adventures, which the usual pairs and partners in crime but and seeing Eliot and Q pair up for an adventure of their own warmed my heart in so many ways. I love how this episode explores love in all forms which is not that common in fantasy shows. Seeing Eliot and Q live out their lives with a family of their own in a separate timeline deserves a lot of praise and recognition; it was also unbelievably insane! (Who lives out their whole life arranging mosaic? That has to drive you nuts!). Hopefully, this is not the last we see of Eliot and Q together.
