Let's discuss the episode here: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/09/the-strain-season-2-episode-9-review-the-battle-for-red-hook
"Haha! I tricked you!"
"Haha! No you didn't, I tricked you!"
This actually could have been a really fascinating two-parter if they just let the audience in on the secrets instead of bashing us on the head with everything in excitable exposition at the end. It's like being given a puzzle with pieces deliberately held back and then talking down to us like we should have figured it out without them or be impressed that the pieces were hidden. The whole thing hit peak laziness with Missy's "I've got a clever idea!" line. It's like they aren't even trying.
Only part that I found decent was Missy trying to trick the Doctor into killing Clara. But even that was ruined with the whole "mercy" thing. I'm too lazy to look but I'm almost positive we've heard Daleks say "mercy" multiple times in the past, including in front of the Doctor so I was confused as to why it surprised him so much.
I don't get why Moffat is so terrified of the Doctor genuinely being tricked once in a while, it'd be a nice change of pace from the run-of-the-mill "What clever thing did Moffat decide to not tell us that lets the Doctor get out of this one" plotline. I feel like Who is kind of scraping the bottom of the creative barrel at this point, though it'll probably never get as bad as Dinosaurs On A Spaceship again, which is hollow solace indeed.
