Aquaman “Pilot” (part 7 of 11)
Establishing shot of—hold the phone, it says Tempest Key Hospital! Those morons, they got the dialogue wrong back in the rescue scene, after all. And don’t tell me there are two hospitals, because we’re about to find out that John “I’ll show you my glowing seahorse if you show me yours” Doe from the raftwreck is here, too. This show not only doesn’t know what it’s about, it doesn’t even know where it takes place.
Inside, A.C. is pouring Torres a glass of water (see? He is Aquaman! Or possibly Busboyman). She wakes up and says, “It’s you!” Well, she’s got him there.
He tosses some quips at her, which drop to the floor with a thud, and then asks if she remembers anything. She remembers a flash of light, and then flying through the water, being carried by A.C. “We were going so fast,” she murmurs blissfully with her eyes closed, making me wonder if being rescued by A.C. actually made her experience the Big O. Not even the movie version of Mary Jane Watson is this into being rescued.
