I remember when I was a kid watching Digimon and saw Patamon do this
I was like
I wasn’t because they basically showed him digivolving into that guy in the theme song literally before every episode before he actually did. So like all the suspense was killed because we knew that the higher the stakes got, we knew exactly what would happen. Not just that they would defeat evil, but exactly how it would happen.
The episode where Angemon digivolves into Magnaangemon was much more suspenseful and subsequently fulfilling.
I have so many feels about the new Doctor Who episode because there were so many references to previous episodes and plot lines, both obvious and subtle, as well as a significant amount of potential foreshadowing as to the way future events will unfold. While I don’t have as many problems with Moffat’s writing as some other people do, the last season did have me missing Davies at certain points. However, after watching this episode, I’m quite hopeful for the rest of the season.
