Owl House spoilers as of S2E16
The fan wiki says that Darius is a secret member of the Covens Against the Throne but I'm not sure where that was established in the show? It's clear that Darius isn't 100% on board with Belos' plan and is secretly undermining him, but like. The wiki goes into a lot of detail about stuff that I just plain don't remember happening, even having just watched the episodes it took place in.
Is this just, like, COVID brain damage or something?
Anyway the final 5 episodes of season 2 go to D+ in about a week and a half, at least.
And it looks like the episodes are available at https://disneynow.com/shows/the-owl-house but of course that requires a cable subscription to access that.
Or there's always rarbg :P
okay NOW I'm caught up, hoooly cow
@fluffy after watching the S2 finale I was literally speechless for like 2 minutes. It was too much.
@vikxin Apparently the show finale is going to be in the form of three 44-minute specials, which is about equivalent to 6 normal-length episodes. I hope they can finish the story properly in that time.
The reason they're only getting a brief miniseries to finish it out is infuriating.
@fluffy yeah I heard about that. They were expecting at least 10. That must be one hell of a scramble considering how much backstory we still don't have for several major characters. You know they were expecting to have more time for exposition...
@vikxin the animation business has a serious problem of caring too much about demographics. it’s the same thing that killed the original Teen Titans cartoon :(
@vikxin I mean at least it wasn’t “sorry this show is too gay,” it was just “sorry this show is getting amazing ratings but it’s not from the specific demographic we wanted to get the ratings from”
@fluffy oh, that wasn't what I thought it was. I thought it was "this isn't the kind of show we want" without making it clear what kind of show they were talking about (maybe the demons, maybe the gay)
@fluffy you know, that's absolutely bizarre and definitely leaving money on the table, which is not the usual fare for Disney
when can I buy a King plush?
@vikxin Dana Terrace made it sound like it was really just the decision of one shitty executive who cared more about Teh Demographics than about having a show that everyone liked.
@fluffy yeah after re-reading it I think you're right, which is a boneheaded decision from pretty much any way you look at it.
@vikxin yeah, it’s frustrating when large media corporations care more about branding than making things that people actually like
and this is literally what happened to Teen Titans too (Cartoon Network didn’t like that it was more popular with teenage girls than 12-year-old boys)
