And we're back to ships that aren't shipping, but totally should be. I'm running out of ships to write about, but I was hoping to make it an even ten... I'm sure I can come up with some more couples to complain about. If you happen to miss it, we're up to part seven, and the couples that came before this were: Part One: Oliver and Felicity on Arrow, Part Two: Charlie and Monroe on Revolution, Part Three: Emma and Hook from Once Upon a Time, Part Four: Skye and Ward from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Part Five: Wade and Zoe from Hart of Dixie and Part Six: Aria and Ezra on Pretty Little Liars.
Today we're not talking about just one ship, we're talking about a whole confusion of ships that are pretty much in a mess. So forgive me if this post ends up making no sense whatsoever.
So, if you don't know, The Tomorrow people is a new/old show. Apparently there was a version of this back in the 80s or something, that possibly didn't go so well. Unfortunately, it seems the remake isn't doing much better, and while I do enjoy this show, I've heard it probably isn't going to see a second season. The confusing mash of characters may have something to do with it. For those of you who have absolutely no clue, the show is based on a group of late teens/early 20-somethings, who are the next step in human evolution, though they call themselves a separate species, which I think is kind of dumb. Anyway, these people have what they call the three T's -- telekinesis, teleportaion and are also telepathic. However, some special people, like the main character Stephen, can also stop time.
So all these people are hiding out from this shadowy organization called Ultra, who basically hunt down the people with these abilities and either strip them of their power or force them to become Ultra agents... there is one other option, but that's death, and who wants to chose that? Oh, and a select few get sent off to a lab for studying.
Cara and John start having some issues, and then randomly one night when John is off elsewhere, Cara decides to take Stephen out for a spin... and by that I mean they teleport to some fancy-schmancy hotel room and get naked.
The ships got pushed to the side for a while, until in the past few weeks, sparks started flying again.
Stephen realized that Astrid was in danger from Ultra because she knew the truth about him, which may have forced him to really consider how he felt about her. Stephen had to be elsewhere, and sent John to watch over Astrid, though Cara argued that such precautions weren't necessary (jealous much, Cara? Annoyed that the two guys you've been stringing along are focused on someone else for five minutes?).
Of course, Astrid did end up in danger, and John was forced to save her, which resulted in him getting
shot. Unable to teleport them out of the building they were in because of his injuries, he and Astrid had to hole up in a supply room, and Astrid had to remove the bullet from his side.
In the end, Cara rescued both of them. In the following episode, John then made it clear to Cara he still had feelings for her, which she kind of brushed off with the reasoning that because she was now the leader of the Tomorrow People (having recently ousted John from that position, but apparently he was cool with it... I know, what the hell, right?) she couldn't be with him and still make impartial judgements or some bull crap.
The episode ended with John defying orders to save Stephen (one would have thought Cara would be on board with that, but no, she would have left him to his fate, crazy bitch... and these two guys still want to win her over?), the result of which was Cara kicking John out of the hideout.
So, what did I get out of these episodes? Well, before I actually wanted Stephen to forget about Cara and realize what he had in Astrid, but then Astrid's scenes with John totally blew that out of the water. Hello chemistry! At the moment, John is in the wind, though I'm sure he'll still be checking in with Stephen since they two of them have become all buddy-buddy like. And what I'm really hoping for, is that he writers noticed the sparks Astrid and John had going and decide to do something with it, because what this show is really lacking is a good angsty love story line.
