Geek Embassy Watches Marvel’s Runaways Seaon 1 Finale

Greetings Geeks! The latest in the TGE Watches series: We discuss Marvel’s Runaways, the latest in the MCU airing weekly on Hulu. For our first episode, we discuss episodes 1-4 of the series. We meet our heroes and our villains. See things that cannot be unseen. Watch and wait as the story unfolds. See our insights about episodes 1-4, episodes 5-6. and 7-8-9.

Official Marvel’s Runaways Description

There are times when pretty much every teenager thinks his or her parents are evil — but what if it was actually true? That’s the situation six Los Angeles teenagers find themselves in when they stumble upon a terrible secret and realize that their parents have been lying to them for their entire lives. The offspring begin an investigation to try to figure out what their guardians are after, while the adults wonder if their kids are hiding secrets of their own. The unlikely crew of teens bands together — led by de facto leader and primary strategist Alex Wilder — to stop their parents before it is too late. The Marvel series is from executive producer Josh Schwartz, whose resume of young-adult fare includes “The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl.”

Dante’s Opening Description

We begin with five houses, all alike in dignity, in fair Malibu where we lay our scene.  From ancient gods break new mutiny where innocent blood makes parental hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these five foes, a group of starcrossed children uproot their lives; whose misadventures change their minds, hope with their deeds bury their parents’ Pride.

Our Discussion

We start our discussion with our predictions from the last episode. Then we cover all the action and inaction of the episode. We enjoyed the finale even if we didn’t get a big fight scene at the end.

To Discuss

Are you all in on Marvel’s Runaways? Looking forward to the second season? Or did it not grab you?

Until next time, get your geek on!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
