So, the Consuls know each other?
That seems...pretty badly planned out for an evil organization that has probably existed for at least a century without anyone hearing a peep until now.
Then again, I'm just a fan boy. I don't really know the the level of practicality in keeping everyone isolated, yet directing the goals of an evil terrorist organization while not really knowing what each individual member of High Command is capable of. That issue alone would require at least some of the Consuls to know each other. But each one to know all of 'em? I don't know.
Cobra Commander is bat crazy. By killing the Consuls, he's eliminating major contacts in government and major corporations. He's reducing Cobra's influence on the power structures of the world...sure, he'll be in command of Cobra...but a much less powerful Cobra. This Cobra Commander is now like ARAH Cobra Commander post coma: complete sociopathic narcissist.
I wonder how the Prime Consul will react. Hopefully, there's a good story in there about Cobra splintering between surving Council members, Serpentor, and the Commander. That should have been the true Civil War story.
On a final note, the Baroness is making good on her plans for revenge against the Council. She promised all the way back in the first season that she would pay them back for delaying her rescue.
