    I'ma Friend You

    The mystery is half the fun on an adventure, as long as it doesn't involve a used toilet. 

    Van and Emily both have to figure out what to do after they are lied to, specifically by the people they are close to, although the way they go about it is different because Van has no idea what being chill means.

    On Powerless Season 1 Episode 6, Emily finds out that Jackie needs some extra cash but when she tries to help it turns out that she wasn't as honest on the first try. Meanwhile, Van wants to find out who visited his toilet and left their magazine there, which means he will stop at nothing to find his version of the truth.

    The Emily and Jackie relationship has been steady, but it's nice to see them work things out like most friends have to at some point, although I am wondering why Jackie hid this from Emily in the first place.

    She said it was because she has too many boundaries, but Emily has shared so much with her. Why didn't Jac...

    Wayne Dream Team

    Things aren't as boring in the office as one would think, especially when there's no internet to distract yourself with.

    Trying to be both a boss and a friend never ends well because there's always something that prevents that from actually working out.

    On Powerless Season 1 Episode 2, Emily learns the hard way that she can't both motivate her team to work and be their friend once the work day is done. Van also learns a lesson about memes and how quickly they can spread.

    The office setting is establishing itself well, following different conflicts from within. The one thing that could get more attention is the invention part of their job.

    Now, Emily could have been too positive of a presence, but I actually look forward to her scenes. She's upbeat and inspiring yet it's not in a very annoying way.

    Usually peppy characters border on horrible because they are forced so hard on us, but Emily really turns that around.

    Emily Dates a Henchman

    Dating creates chaos, especially in a superhero scattered city where Tinder profiles probably don't reveal who is or isn't a henchman. 

    But can there be an exception for guys who watch Gilmore Girls and play a human/zombie on iZombie? 

    On Powerless Season 1 Episode 4, Emily pushes herself to get back out into the dating world after her ex-boyfriend announces his engagement. Meanwhile, Teddy, Ron, and Van try to meet Batman with one of them trying maybe a little too hard.

    The show really seems to be creating something for itself. The office relationships are feeling more and more honest, making it much more fun to see all the different kinds of interactions. 

    It's also great to see the others looking out for Emily, filling her in on who she was dating when she was getting in too deep. 

    They are growing closer at work too, but it might be worth seeing the group outside of the office too. Emily was left alone, and that's h...

    Relationships in the office hang by a thread, especially if there are no boundaries in the first place.

    Teddy/Emily and Ron/Van find that out the hard way when they get a little too involved in each other's lives. Or at least Emily and Ron get involved and then have to figure out where to go from there.

    On Powerless Season 1 Episode 5, Emily submits Teddy's invention into a contest in which he didn't want to participate. That resulted in her meeting Teddy's family, including his older brother that came out on top regarding accomplishments.

    As for Ron, he wound up helping Van with something personal. Building something for the son of the woman that Van wanted to date didn't start or end well for Ron.

    Office interactions are the core of this show, so watching Emily and Teddy butt heads was the highlight. 

    Emily taking over and thinking that her submitting Teddy's invention was about him led to some interesting discoveries...
