|Recaps/mini-reviews of each episode|
s01e05 - Wolf in the Fold
Lampre, that female beast commander has another plan... they go and attack while the good guys are holding their first war planning council... and she possesses the unconscious Tekla's body to try and get close enough to Graveheart to kill him. Jade and the fire prince's guardian are immediately suspicious of her... nobody catches on that she already knows Feemer's name when Tekla never met him before. except for the fire prince's guardian.. who asks how she knows Feemer but not the prince.
Tekla joins the council meeting... "Before we can come up with a unified strategy. I need to know what you are all capable of, including the full details and schematics of all your weapon systems"
Graveheart seems gullible the whole time, and not listening to Jade at all.. but eventually even he gets suspicious of her, and attacks her and says there's no way Tekla could've known about Rock's battle moons.
Feemer gets mad and leaves with Tekla sneaking onboard before he finds out that Lampre is in control of Tekla's body.
s01e06 - Mind War
Tekla is now tricking Feemer into thinking the others betrayed them. The fire prince says we need to rescue Feemer, and Graveheart is worried about rescuing Tekla. Cryos says that Graveheart may be more important to winning this war than Tekla is.
Tekla has a mind battle with Lampre, and tries to steal her secrets to get even with her. meanwhile Tekla's body is going bonkers and she starts beating up Feemer... Feemer's assistant enjoys watching this... Graveheart doesn't know what to do when Feemer stops shooting at them, so Cryos has to fill in and lead everyone for a bit.
"Graveheart, destroy us while you still can"
"Together we can prevail"
okay... sometimes the writing in this show is decent I guess...
s01e07 - J'accuse
Jade goes fire a walk on planet fire while the council is having a meeting... Lampre lurks around in the shadows making Jade on edge and getting her into a bunch of fights with fire people.
Jade gets accused of a murder afterwards... the prince decides to give Graveheart some time to investigate before holding the trial. Bone comes to Jade's defense...
"Loin to lie"
meanwhile Cryos and Tekla who are monitoring Fire's orbit, see the beast drones fly in... "The Beast Drones always attack from within first. We need to warn everyone"
They attack just as Pyrus and Graveheart discuover the beast's weapon proving Jade's innocence. Graveheart tries to lead the prince to safety.. leads them into a dead end alleyway.
"Hey, it's YOUR world, I don't have a map"
Graveheart then kills all the drones by pushing a big garbage bin through the alley which somehow kills them on contact and they are too dumb/slow to run away from...
Vezier has now seen first hand what the beast drones are capable of, but he's still paranoid about this alliance.
s01e08 - Blood is Thicker...
Cryos' daughter goes missing when they are having a council meeting on Ice... Toad is the only one who doesn't wanna waste time looking for her and instead wants to focus on defending against the beast planet.
Graveheart had to stop Cryos who was about to physically grab a beast drone... apparently they can't touch beast drones at all without getting hurt... I think they only have Tekla's people as evidence of that so far though... what if it's just their technological bodies that makes them specifically vulnerable to that shadow skin...
yep, they're literally video game enemies
Cryos feels like he failed not only his daughter, but also his people at this point... and then the brute forcer Beast Commander vidmessages them and forces Cryos to choose between saving his daughter or saving the planet.
The gang splits up in this ep... Jade takes Cryos to look for his daughter, while Graveheart and Tekla defend the palace... and Pyrus and Toad are uh, I dunno defending the skies I guess. Pyrus has to force Toad to engage the beasts and not just hide from them... but they get shot down.
"Thank the glacier I saved you, daughter. But at what cost to our people..."
"For honor's sake, a king must always choose duty over family... But when faced with that choice, I knew there was nothing more important to me than my daughter."
so Cryos steps down as king of Ice.
Wow the drama in this episode is getting really intense...
... and lemme guess, next ep will be the "revisit to Bone" ep... 11 will be a space ep, then fire... cycle starts again from there on Ice, etc...
"I do hope lord Mantel will be more receptive to joining the alliance than he is about seeing you again."
Cryos wisely decides to stay behind on their council meeting on Rock because of how he's not his planet's king anymore...
so what they couldn't get the new Ice king along on the alliance?
now that Tekla and her assistant are conscious, they now have proof, and show Mantel a projector video of planet water being devoured by the beast planet. Tekla snuck into one of Rock's computer outlets long enough to hack in and disable the battle moons... once Feemer got control of the moons for himself, he blasted Tekla out..
Mantel tries to have Jade executed, but Pyrus says she's under his royal protection.
"Pyrus to Feemer. We need help from the battle moons. You're the only one who can save us now."
The alliance goes to beg for Mantel's forgiveness, while he asks to have Feemer brought in for execution... Mantel just blames them all for bringing the beast drones to his planet, and tells them to get lost...
starts off with random spaceshooting videogame footage. okay...
Pyrus to Cyra... "haha yea right... so you're a warrior princess? that'll be the day"
these 2 kids start fighting over control of the ship.. and crash land on Bone...
or some other dead planet I think? Cyra (I think her name is?) tries to take command in this situation since Pyrus is weakened by this planet's atmosphere... but he doesn't have faith in her to lead. she starts worrying about him who stays with her even while the lack of oxygen is weakening him...
they get inside some place with oxygen, and find that this is a beast drone base.
"we have to notify the alliance"
"not while we're maruned hear, idiot"
Cryos and the rest eventually rescue them, and Cryos tells his daughter he'll now Jade train her to be a warrior.
"Just remember child, you asked for this."
Pyrus: "Good because we're going to need all the warriors we can get."
