  • Oh Razer, what have you done???

    Green Lantern "Cold Fury" was an amazing episode but the heart of this story is Razer and Aya - I still can't get over how Razer suddenly changes - from loving Aya the way she was - artificial intelligence and all - to suddenly using the lame excuse of "I only said that because you look like my dear Illana," or "I can not love a machine" - All throughout the series, it was implied that Razer KNEW she is a computer, that Razer KNEW that she is a machine, and yet he loved her irrespective of whether she looked like his dead love or not. In the episode "in Love and War," he was transported via the Star Sapphires directly to her - not his dead wife, but to her - Aya. In "Prisoner of Sinestro," he made a pass at her even if he was under the influence of an alien force, and even worried if he hurt her in any way towards the end of that episode. Every episode where they had scenes together, it was implied that he loved her just as she was - an artificial intelligence with emotions. So I agree with Aya when she said; "Your actions are not consistent with what you said" - Just the previous episode, he wanted to kiss her and she was still in "robot" form. So it does not make sense that he does "not" love her any more. What a quick change of heart - when all along he has shown so much concern and feelings towards her - machine or not. I believe that he did that because he can not face yet another loss - did you notice how he had to clench his fists before he "lied" to her about not loving her? It's as though he was forcing himself to say the very things he never meant to say. The man suffered 2 great losses already - both died in his arms - both were killed. To have to endure the pain of loss, his only way out was to shut himself down literally. Withdraw from Aya, protect himself and his own emotional stability. That seems to be the only logical reason why he had to hurt Aya, he had to push her away not realising the consequences of his actions. For Aya's part, I really can not blame her for fusing herself with the Anti-Monitor, for shutting down her own emotions too, to escape pain. The interesting part is that her emotions were shut down, not completely switched off. Her actions were of anger, rage, despair all rolled into coldness which all reek of emotions - they are still there.

    I just hope now that there is some kind of "happy ending" for these two characters. That somehow, Aya regains what she used to be and that she is free of pain because she does deserve more than this. When she kept on saying: "Processing, processing" I just wanted to reach out and hug her. And when Razer said: " I can not love you," I wanted to shake him! What? You can't confess your love one episode only to take it back the next episode! If Hal was there he'd probably say something like: "That is not what you meant, you mean you do not want to get hurt again, you do not want to go through losing someone you loved" - that I am sure is what was behind all this. It would be interesting to see how the series really ends.moreless
