(Sigh)…I'm sorry. I am so sorry. I am so, SO sorry. I'm so sorry that this took forever. I have no excuse. I'm just lazy. In hindsight, I probably should have chosen something else to be my first review. I just haven't been in a "Miraculous Ladybug" mood, ya know? Well…now that I'm done apologizing, let's go over the basics!
So, here's how the Impromptu Reviews work;
First, I go over a brief recap of the thing I'm reviewing, so of course, sometimes, there will be spoilers. Then, I discuss my thoughts and feelings about the thing, and finally, I rate the thing out of 10 random things, and then I do the thingy-thing, and then I thing-thing. Now, without further ado, let's start this thingythingthingathing!
Okay, Brief Recap!
Alya is trying to figure out Ladybug's identity again, even though it's BLATANTLY OBVIOUS who she is, and comes to the conclusion that Chloe is Ladybug when she sees her carrying around Ladybug merch. When she tells Nino, he doesn't believe her, so she tries to look in her locker to prove she is right…only to get busted by Chloe, who blackmails the principal into suspending Alya. Alya's all depressed, Hawkmoth's all like, "Well, that's just perfect!" And Akumatizes Alya. Alya is now Lady Wifi, who will stop at nothing to find Ladybug's true identity(Which is still totally obvious, by the way.). She starts by getting revenge on the principal for suspending her by recording him admitting it and then "pausing him" in time. Marinette(Who is the girl that's obviously Ladybug AND Alya's best friend)realizes that Alya is Lady Wifi…by looking at the keychain on her phone. And not her voice. Or her hair.………SO NOW Ladybug and Cat Noir(Both of their identities clear as day)are trying to save Alya from herself, and meanwhile, Lady Wifi figures out that Chloe is, in fact, NOT Ladybug, and is just wearing a costume(I mean, she still looks NOTHING like Marinette.). So, she goes chasing after the REAL Ladybug and Cat Noir in some fancy restaurant(Don't worry, it's closed.). Somehow, Cat Noir gets locked in a freezer and reverts back to Adrien(Who is OBVIOUSLY Marinette's crush), and Ladybug is paralyzed so Lady Wifi can unmask her. However, since the mask is magic, it won't come off. So, instead of removing her earrings, Hawkmoth tells Lady Wifi to unparalyze her so can use her lucky charm so she'll revert back to her true form…ANYWAY! She complies to save Cat Noir, and now, she doesn't have much time before she turns back. So it's up to Cat Noir to stop Lady Wifi. He destroys Wifi's main transport, thus cutting off the signal allowing everyone to watch what's happening. That's when Ladybug finally swoops in, breaks Alya's phone, thus releasing the Akuma(Though, seeing how his ring represents destruction, that should be Cat Noir's job), and saves Alya. After they escape, Cat Noir asks Ladybug to show him her real identity(At least ask her to dinner first, goodness!). She says that even they can't know each other's identities…and he obliges(So close!). The next day, Alya KSNR figures out Cat Noir's obvious identity(Why doesn't anyone care about him, anyway?)and shows Marinette, who denies that Cat Noir and Adrien are the same person…*face-palm*.
Wow, that recap really wasn't that brief, huh? Oops.^-^'
So, I really liked this episode overall. I felt genuinely bad for Alya when she was falsely punished, and Lady Wifi is one of my favorite villains in the show so far. I especially find it romantic and sweet how Adrien agreed to let Ladybug's identity stay a secret to him. It shows how much he loves her, even though it's kinda sad how even though it's so clear who both of them really are, NEITHER OF THEM CAN TELL THAT THE CRUSH THEY'RE CHASING IS THE SAME PERSON THEY KEEP PUSHING BACK AND/OR IGNORING FFUGSENRDIDSCQGKOJXNM--As I was saying, even though this episode was very enjoyable, it was nowhere near perfect. For starters, did I mention how OBVIOUSLY OBVIOUS both superheroes' identities are? I also have no idea how the flop Adrien wound up in a freezer. But that's a nitpick. Let's discuss the stupidest scene in the entire episode, heck, the show as a whole! When Hawkmoth tells Lady Wifi to make Ladybug use her lucky charm. WHY? You could have just told her to remove the earrings and the episode would have been a LOT shorter! No wonder the villains never win! Because they're freaking idiots!This episode of Miraculous Ladybug has been brought to you by Plot Convenience! Preventing Bad Guys from winning since 1927!(Pre-Order now to get a free Idiot Stick!)
But, anyway, aside from that, this episode was really good, and I recommend it for anyone who is interested in the series(I mean, it's as explanatory as the first episode. :/). 8 connection bars out of 10!
And that concludes my very first review! Once again, I'm very sorry for taking so long. From now on, I think it's best I get my priorities in order and stop making so many announcements at once! Thank you for being patient and for reading this, and remember, Acceptance Is Bliss.
