The Episode Review

Emily Blunt is breathtaking in the episode that explores Cornelia’s complicated motives as well as the immense hurt she’s carrying. She’s hiding something and Blunt wonderfully portrays the hurt and desperation bubbling under the surface of Cornelia’s life before she pushes the issue back in order to be in a position to accomplish things. And she definitely is a shrewd entrepreneur.

Cornelia’s savvy battle with Black-Eyed Mog is the most satisfying ending of the series (even if it is not able to quickly resolve what happens to a person who was just introduced). The whole encounter was satisfying due to the fact that it was selfless as was all Cornelia did.

The exchange reveals the differences between the two quests to get revenge. Mog seeks out uninvolved, impersonal murders in response to something that happened to her many years ago. While Cornelia’s goal is to protect her son. The motivation is personal and focused on the responsible, specific person. The displeasure she has for Mog isn’t just a ploy to be hypocritical, however, she is merely revealing her nobler motives.
