Starlight: You fired Ashley?
Madelyn Stillwell: It was actually a mutual decision. She wanted to explore different career paths and, um, we wished her well.
Madelyn Stillwell: So, I would like you to take this in the constructive spirit that it is intended.
Starlight: [frowns] Okay.
Madelyn Stillwell: You are a selfish, arrogant child.

Bring back the laser baby!
28 August 2019 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

After the brilliance of last episode's laser baby scene and Billy Butcher's hilarious anti-god rant, the chance that this episode would seem a little disappointing was always going to be high. 'The Innocents' is still good TV, but it doesn't have any outrageously OTT scenes, instead developing the character of Starlight and her relationship with Hughie, and introducing mind-reading supe Mesmer (Haley Joel Osment), who is called in to try and find out more about The Female (Karen Fukuhara).

Mesmer's introduction at a meet-and-greet event is the funniest moment, for he is sharing the limelight with stars such as Billy Zane and Tara Reid (both regulars on the autograph circuit), but on the whole this is probably the weakest episode of the season so far.
