Magi 2 episode 15
I’m feeling it. I’m getting that distinctive feeling that a person gets right before all hell breaks loose. You notice it when the story gets really tense and the comedy fades into the background. It’s about to get really good.
I’m glad that they continued to follow Aladdin and his friends. Last week’s ended with a major cliff-hanger and I have been dying to see the rest of it. I kind of hoped that Aladdin, because he simply isn’t strong enough right now, would have taken out that stone in his arm in order to use his full power to save those people. Too bad, I guess that’s reserved for later.
I was actually quite shocked when that crazy old man asked Aladdin about his former teacher, that busty witch from Sindria. He knows. Old man Mogamett knows everything. He probably knows who Aladdin his and what he is. This complicates things. There’s no way that Aladdin can snoop around anymore.
I’m pretty sure that the old man is going to try to recruit everyone to his side, Aladdin included. He, from what I could tell, had a difficult past where all the non-magical people enslaved wizards and witches to be their loyal tools whenever it suited them. He lost his wife, his daughter and many friends during those days. That’s why I really can’t blame him for looking down on those that cannot use magic. Also, I think he made a fair point when he said that he wasn’t really holding those people down there captive. I mean, they were boozing, doing drugs and god only knows what else. Are there really viewers out there that sympathize with them? I sure don’t.
