Brock Sampson IS BACK.
It’s been what six episodes since he’s last appeared and FINALLY the man god of death and destruction is back. I have to admit the length of seems longer, but at long last Brock Samson is back. Not even five minutes and we witness glorious death from his glorious hands. GOD IS IT GREAT TO HAVE BROCK BACK! Even better, it looks like he’s back longer term again with S.P.H.I.N.X. moving into an area of the Venture Compound due to the latest scheme of the Monarch’s (which of course blows up in his face).
Though Brock is only the topping of this highlight of an episode, which again continues upon Henchmen 21’s rise to glory and also insanity. It’s really good to see just how far 21 has gotten with a mono-e-mono fight with Mr. Sampson himself in this episode. Who’d thought this wimp of a lackey would last more than thirty seconds against the death god of the show? Especially after his three second fight with Sampson in Season One. Not only that but we’re introduced to a new Guild member whose gimmick is quite an amusing idea.
But back to the madness I knew 21 was having problems cooping with 24’s death, but geez instead of getting better it’s worsening. We get the title of the episode from his increasing delusions, or could it be fact. With events in the Venture Universe I’ll keep an open mind if 24 is a figment of 21’s mind or really a ghost. Plus with the added knowledge that he has the hots for Doctor Mrs. Monarch this is so going to make things more awkward for him later on if ever the Monarch or the Mrs. Catches on. Oh, that’s beauty though of this show. Just when you have things figured out Publick and Hammer take a u-turn in the other direction. I am seriously beginning to wonder where they’ll go with 21’s storyline once they continue on with season four in a couple of months.
That brings me to the only negative I can have with this episode. THIS IS THE LAST ONE FOR LIKE A FEW MONTHS! Damn Cartoon Network for stretching out this season. The wait for this will be beyond frustrating. Regardless, such a petty thing cannot bring this episode down for me. Sgt. Hatred was kept at bay with a tiny appearance. Plus out of nowhere Doctor Mrs. Monarch dissing her once beloved Moppets. In the end, this episode truly show’s that no matter how many things have changed, so many things have remained the same. Welcome back Brock, we so missed you.
