Are you kidding me?
The first half of this episode was ungodly terrible. About five minutes of sitting in his room, listening to monotone exposition, followed by a date montage with the same monotone exposition over it, before back to the room for more exposition. That's how the entire first 12 minutes of the episode went. Just one excruciating almost completely uninterrupted infodump. What the goddamned hell is wrong with you, Troyca? It was pure crap on a very short stick, and the less said about it the better.
The second half was more or less back to similar quality of the first episode, which is to say, not great, but at least you could sort of tell a few people were trying, and both the new (fighter) characters introduced have more life to them, or willingness to cause wanton property damage, than the entire rest of the cast put together. Unfortunately, the fight was once again largely flying around at random with CGI projectiles tossed in after the fact. This time, they were giant pink hearts. And that's when they weren't just glowing dots hundreds of feet away. It absolutely was helped by sidelining the horrid protagonist, who existed to do nothing but scream a girl's name when she was heart-bombed. Maybe next week, they can simply kill him and be done with him entirely. Along with all the other characters from episode 1.
