Fred the Fugitive
I really liked it. 8.5/10

I am amused that people confuse this show for Marvel Comics. It's not. It's Disney. Disney is not going to kill off a bunch of characters to make a thematic point about the ambiguity of superheroes. People are expecting this show to be darker than Disney would ever allow it to be.Um, hey, Chief Cruz?
Stop raising those death flags!
When you begin talking about what happened to your father in regards to superheroes and supervillains, and then say that "superheroes can't save everyone", you are tempting fate so that someone - most likely YOU - is going to get axed off in the season finale. And I really don't want to witness Megan's reaction to that happening, it'll just be too painful...
This is a show that was spun off from a movie that had death and how to cope with the grief that it causes as a major theme.I am amused that people confuse this show for Marvel Comics. It's not.

I disagree. The movie was an origin story, which means Hiro needed a personal death to give him a reason to become a hero. I don't see this show ever leaning into the tragedy of the characters, even tertiary characters like Chief Cruz. It's not fitting with the tone of everything else.This is a show that was spun off from a movie that had death and how to cope with the grief that it causes as a major theme.
Obake was (apparently) killed in the Season 1 finale right after we found out that his villainy was due to a condition that wasn't his fault and right after he still chose to do a selfless thing by releasing Baymax to go save Hiro from drowning.
The story arc from the first half of this season centered around characters literally named Liv and Di, with the latter being obsessed with curing the former of a terminal illness.
I think you might be underestimating what this show is capable of. It's obviously not that it's the kind of show that will go around killing just anyone: the main characters, kids and comic relief types are safe. But prominent secondary characters, who are usually also antagonists? Once death flags are raised on them, anything is possible.
Fred's mom is married to Boss Awesome, so her knowing that Fred is part of BH6 is very much possible, especially with Fred's big mouth and BH6 having a few of their meetings at Fred's house(which would most likely have security cameras).First you had Megan, and not Fred's mom, I am telling you by the end of the season, there will be no secret identity, it will be public knowledge, that is what we are building towards.
I knew something was up with Major Blast and that he wasn't a true villain, but yeah, Fred's Mother, I did not see that coming. I was thinking it was gonna be Fred's father testing his son.Did not see that coming either. Bravo, Big Hero 6 writers.
I think he's definitely the Big Bad for the finale, since it'll be about Chief Cruz dispatching these new Krei Tech robots...and if you remember Hardlight's true identity and what his job was, it should be obvious where things are headed from there.I was figuring that Hardlight would've been the big bad of the season.
