Grogar sends his legion of doom on a mission to become allies, but his plan works too well and they almost become friends.

I can't wait to hear Grogar's mental gymnastics on how allies are different than friends. :smirk:

so, somehow this episode is out already.

It's not the Italian version that aired earlier this week, it's in English, but I can't seem to figure out it's source. Treehouse is apparently doing 2 episodes a weekend again, and might catch up in a few weeks, but this..

Image

There's a blurred out watermark, so maybe it's a production leak and that's the time code or something.


edit: apparently you can watch the English version on the Italian streaming service, so the next two episodes after this are also out.

Was that the only episode of the whole show that didn't have a main 6 character or CMC in it? :ponder:

I really liked this one. It was cool to see the villains working together and using thier strengths to get up the mountain. Certainly there's more to come as we saw at the end.

Chrysalis inhaling the love energy and then cocooning the monster was creepy, even though she had done it in the past. Image

I think there's a tiny crack in the villain armor, the way they talked about friendship for a moment. And Chrissy willingly gave Tirek her magic, knowing it would make her helpless. I guess we'll see. Image

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode from start to finish. Cosy Glow got to demonstrate what a mercurial little psychopath she is, Tirek that he is considerably more than brawn, but especially Queen Chrysalis shone.

That was a damn funny episode. Plus leaves openings for all sorts of mayhem.

I smell a redemption for all of them at the end of the series.
