Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 6 - Thoughts

I have seen the original anime in both it's dubbed version and subtitled several times through, although I'm really bad at remembering the Japanese character names so I'll be referring characters as their westernised names within this post, I have also read a few of the mangas but not all because I've never had the cash to be able to justify completing my collection when I have so many other things I want or need to get first. I have unfortunately never managed to find a dubbed or subtitled version of the live action Sailor Moon. from what I've read Sailor Moon Crystal is a lot closer to the manga than the original anime is.
In order to compare the episodes respectively I watched both the original anime and Sailor Moon Crystal ( you can watch SMC on Hulu in some countries, I couldn't get that to play here in the UK so I googled and found a stream of it on another site, however I'm not sure how legal the stream is so I'm not going to link to it).
From this point onwards THAR BE SPOILERS!

So the episode opens pretty much where the last one left off, with the girls inspecting the new wand. Following that it turns out that unbeknownst to each other Serena and Darian have been having the same dreams from different points of view, except that they're not dreams are they Neo?
Next we find out that Tuxedo Mask has been telling the media that he has been committing crimes to try and find the imperium silver crystal Oh noes!
This confirms Luna's feeling that Tuxedo Mask is evil, although the girls aren't so sure, Serena notices that her new wand is very like the wand Sailor V has in the video game and wonders if perhaps Sailor V is one of them?
Meanwhile Queen Beryl is pissed that she doesn't yet have enough energy to bring back their leader, Nephrite begs for another chance and Zocite offers his services as King of Europe.

Back on earth Sereyna crashes into Darien yet again, and the girls ask who he is and if she maybe has a bit of a crush on him!
A mysterious woman appears on television talking about how everybody should look for the imperium silver crystal and everybody besides the scouts and Luna becomes hypnotised and starts frantically looking for the crystal.
Luna takes the girls to a secret room under the games arcade.
In the secret room Luna discovers that the source of the strange TV broadcast is the TV station (how strange!), and theorises that it must be Tuxedo Mask!
Serena refuses to belie this and runs off on her own whilst the others head off to face down the mysterious TV lady, who who would have guessed it turns out to be Zoicite in disguise!

Meanwhile Serena runs out of energy and faints, but is saved by Tuxedo Mask! The two talk about how powerless they feel and give each other their confidence back and head off to help the others, who Zoicite has managed to all but defeat, even Queen Beryl has come to to harvest their energy by the time Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask get there. Tuxedo Mask encourages Sailor Moon to use the new wand, which heals the other scouts and injures Zoicite meaning Queen Beryl has to carry him off like some kind of demonic angel!
Sailor Moon passes out again and Tuxedo Mask kisses her (dude she's unconscious, that's a bit creepy) and then carries her home, where he still is in the morning when she wakes up and finally twigs that the guy that looks like Tuxedo Mask without a Mask is in fact TUXEDO MASK!
