16. [livejournal.com profile] kikimay requested: TOP 5 RAGE/LOL/WTF STORYLINES.

Before we continue I want to say that when I posted this meme I wasn't ASKING for people to prompt nothing but salt, but that is how life has turned out, so.

WARNING: SPOILERS ABOUND BELOW for S4 of Angel/BSG/Doctor Who (what is it with TV shows and the season four), the last Potter movie, and the most recent episode of Reign.




In no particular order because I refuse to measure the degree of my confusion:


TOP FIVE "LOL/WTF IS THIS I DON'T EVEN" MOMENTS IN FICTION!!!!!!!




"WHY" #1: the last 5 minutes of Angel 4.15 Orpheus

angel415_1193angel415_1195

On my list of Characters Horrendously Fucked Over By the Writers, Cordelia Chase would make top five for sure. Mystical pregnancies are, as you can probably guess, MY FAVE PLOT DEVICE EVER, and the degree of damage it did to Cordy's character made Darla's Redemptive Motherly Sacrifice arc look forward-thinking and enlightened. At least Darla was a conscious and freely acting agent throughout! Cordy's return in season five's You're Welcome was a blessing, but redeem her torpedoed narrative it did not.


In summary:

motivational03


((((... Despite that I still maintain the Jasmine arc is one of the most compelling things to come out of that show. See, this is my problem with Angel: one totally enraging narrative decision is followed by INEXPLICABLE GENIUS (see also: season five).))))





"WHY" #2: Battlestar Galactica 4.22 Daybreak (parts 2 & 3) -- the whole thing, the entirety, ALL OF IT

I defer to P's WHAT THE FUCK?: post on the finale. The extensive WHAT THE FUCK? list at the end is particularly on point. WHAT THE FUCK all around!!!!!!

BUT ESPECIALLY:

NO FURTHER COMMENT.





"WHY" #3: the last 10 minutes of Doctor Who 4.13 Journey's End



lol, I've already shaded this IN GREAT DEPTH so I won't belabour the point. Just consider this your friendly reminder that the Doctor is the kind of commitment-evading ho who sets up his One Special Girl with clones of himself. #never 4get

(WILL I STILL BE LAUGHING ABOUT THIS TEN MILLION YEARS FROM NOW? PROBABLY.)

Honourable mention to the bewildering and incomprehensible trainwreck that was the entirety of series six. I'd elaborate but Eleonore and Myriam are none the wiser so let that be a pressed rant for a stronger soul than I.





"WHY" #4: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, part II -- WHATEVER THIS WAS

(Warning that the following edited clip is EXTREMELY WRONG!)



There are no words.

As far as I'm concerned Part I was a tough act to follow but by God, this scene was doing the most!





"WHY" #5: the last 5 minutes of Reign 2.10 Mercy



I was spoiled that Henry would be coming back from the dead and yet, I WAS STILL SHOCKED TO THE BONE! This is some Katherine Heigl/dead husband bullshit, man! (And I didn't even go there!) Of course, Reign's crazy always winds up making sense sooner or later (e.g. THE GHOST OF HENRY POSSESSING A MAID turning out to be Narcisse trolling Francis LIKE NO ONE HAS EVER TROLLED BEFORE, God bless Cissy), so I have high hopes for this storyline. And we know how I feel about Catherine/Henry. #and you cry and your tears are the blood of the innocents




IN CONCLUSION:

SENSE




Any amazing lol moments I missed? BY ALL MEANS SHARE WITH THE CLASS.
