    I just thought of something while I was watching the JLU episode: "Panic in the sky" when Galatea said she was going to set the reactor to overload, it dawned on me... how could she do that if she had NEVER been on the watchtower?

    I don't  know if the writers of this episode thugth about that. But I found it to be sorta odd.

    Because she had been fully debriefed on the Watchtower specs and blueprints so she knew exactly what was on the satellite and where to go. Cadmus has spies on the Watchtower, remember? In Task Force X, the group knew exactly where to go to create a diversion and retrieve the armor.

    Everything isn't thoroughly explained, but they count on the viewers to connect the dots.

    You should just buy the brilliant DVD sets, Nevada.

    Speaking of, Worlds Finest now has reviews up for the upcoming JLU and BB sets! The Cadmus: Exposed commentary clocks in at over half an hour, and we're getting mini-commentaries for "The Great Brain Robbery", "Ancient History" and "Alive!"; all this and a music-only track for "Destroyer"! What an awesome send-off release for this show!

    Either that or they are somehow able to see from each other's thoughts/actions as if they were psychically connected.

    If you remember, in "Fearful Symmetry", Galatea said to Supergirl, "It's like you're reading my mind... which is actually the problem and why you have to die". Later, the Question explained to Galatea that she was unable to kill him or Green Arrow because Supergirl's conscience was affecting her mind. In his words, "It bites having someone in your head".

    I'd definitely remember that. For the sake of it, I'll probably watch the episode again.

    I didn't like "Fearful Symmetry" at first (all of the other episodes with Question are better) but when I saw it again on DVD I realised it was great.

    I felt the same way. In addition, I've always wondered who that guy was in the shadows that received and executed the order to destroy the company. After some research, this is what I found: Link

    That was damn funny. I've been wondering about that since I first saw "Fearful Symmetry". So it wasn't Luthor? Huh.

    And Shay, it's not one of my favourites either, but I like it too.
