Who killed Retro Girl ?
Let me start by saying it’s great to have Powers back! Powers season to me was a show that had so much potential but was lacking due to its low budget quality. From the new intro to the overall look of the show it just looks better thus far. While it’s still not to the visual level of let’s say the Flash it is a noticeable step up from the bad green screens of last season.
This season starts off with the untimely death of Retro girl. The show last season did a great job of making you care about the relationship between her and Walker so when the audience sees Walker looking at her motionless corpse we can feel his pain. This episode did a good job with not only establishing the new characters for this season ( Michael Madson’s SuperShock being my fav thus far. It also does a good job of setting up the mystery of Retro Girl’s death. With Walker not on the case for obvious reason and Pilgrim for the time being with a new partner. The show had a great dynamic of them separately looking for Krispin who was left to his own devices by Kaotic Chic.
This led to the ending scene that while shocking I’m quite sure there is more than meets the eye with it. Calista’s side story of her adapting to her powers was cool even if some of the scenes suffered from bad CG.it was an intense moment when she found her father and beat him within an inch of his life for what he did to her mother. We also got to see Zora’s powers return as the flew out of the hospital. Overall this was a great start to the season.
Score 8.5 out of 10
