I should be used to this given the MCU (and having watched the rest of the show), but I was continually tickled that names like "Melog," "Swen", and "Lynda D'Ream" were 80's Show canon.

Catra's familiar was part of her healing process. Someone who knew her only after she started to work on being a better person and loved her, showing just how far Catra had come from her bad old habits.

Dunno, felt more like circumstances once again twisting around someone who had fundamentally not changed. Feels less like Catra reached across and more like the entire world fell rear end backwards and they were all literally imprisoned in a space with Catra. Catra dosn't develop so much as she is given a figure who shows how she 'really feels' she isn't really forced to communicate honestly or actually do much differently. The tide changed, not the trash floating on it.

grand gestures don't mean poo poo irl OR in narratives. motives do, that was ultimately a self destructive action ON TOP OF being yet another way of pushing others away. Its like the most quintessentially catra poo poo.

Oh come on now. She did not sacrifice her life to be self destructive. She genuinely wanted Adora to be save there and knew that this won't happen if Glimmer is around. From her perspective, she was giving up everything for Adora, not at all expecting to get anything but a painful death out of it, because this seemed like the only chance.
If someone did that for me, I would definitely feel some kind of deep gratitude.
Pushing everyone away would have been ignoring Glimmer and stealing some shuttle to disappearing off forever before Adore arrived.

If there was anything likely to get Adora to come as quickly as possible, risking everything,it was the one-two punch of "I saved Glimmer for you" and "Don't come save me, I'm certainly dead by now, this is entirely different from what happened with Entrapta."

Horde Prime counted on it, and he only knew of Adora through interviews, video footage, and Hordak's memories. Catra would have known that too, if she'd stopped to think about it.

I agree with your first part, but the bolded part is laffola. She knew she was not in a position to escape anywhere.

Also, I like how everyone is forgetting that she teleported Glimmer to A RANDOM POSITION IN OUTER SPACE and basically gave Adora and team the ultimatum of be there or your friend dies with no idea on where Adora's ship actually was.

Plat is totally fine, how about we cut the loop down to just the "hellooooo" part so it's not as grainy. Basically cut out all the frames right before the scan finishes, that should help us get to a better quality.

Something I just realized about Spinnerella and Netossa is that for the first four seasons, they had strong couple energy. It wasn't until the fifth season that "yes, they are a couple" was made explicit on screen, when Netossa referred to Spinnerella as her wife.

It kind of makes me wonder what was going on behind the scenes there, because as I recall, Noelle Stephenson had to fight for the Catra/Adora kiss, and one of the arrows in her quiver was "we have been setting this up for four seasons, we either end it in the organic gay way or we do some contrived queerbaiting bullshit." So that makes me think that Spinny and Netty had to keep things relatively low-key on camera at first, but by season 5 they could go all in.

That's a fair point. I guess that would have been the thing which really cuts her out of Adora's life.

I think they were actually confirmed as a couple in season 1 but then they pretty much weren't on screen at all again until season 5. Noelle was probably allowed to slip those two in early because they were so unimportant and then she could say "Look, there was no backlash from that, so it's fine actually."

They were confirmed as a couple, but it was done on Noelle's twitter, I think. The actual in-show confirmation wasn't until 5.
