    Sym-Bionic Titan
    Episode 17 -
    Number 117

    Under the Three Moons

    Opening: http://youtu.be/be9o3_kD1ls



    This week on Sym-Bionic Titan...
    Ilana feels homesick as winter arrives in Illinois.

    Last time on Sym-Bionic Titan...
    Spoiler:
    The events leading up to the trio's departure from Galaluna were recalled. Ilana attended the opening of a school in a tribal region of Galaluna with her guardian, Hobbs. Meanwhile, Lance went on a mission to rescue hostages from an observatory. His commander told him to return to his post, but he snuck in to the observatory as the Muddradi Leader was talking to Modula (unknown to Lance) and was imprisoned for getting the hostages killed (even though they were beforehand). Meanwhile, the King was seen finishing building Octus. At the dungeon, Lance tried to explain to the king about what happened, but he turned his back on Lance. After, the invasion began and Ilana and Hobbs made a desperate race back to the palace. Lance escaped from jail and discovered the invasion was actually a coup by a number of officers, including his commander, who was revealed to be a traitor. Lance killed his former commander after a long sword fight. Meanwhile, Ilana and an injured Hobbs hijacked a Mutraddi tank and shot their way through the cordon of Mutraddi troops attacking the palace. Just as Ilana and her father entered the palace, they were ambushed by the Mutraddi, when Lance to swung in and saved them. Lance informed the King about the truth of the attack, and the king led Lance and Ilana to an escape rocket. After presenting Octus, he told them that he was staying behind to lead his people. Ilana tearfully refused to leave him, but he forced her to go. He then apologized to Lance for not believing in him, and gave him a new Manus control unit. The trio then boarded the rocket and successfully managed to enter the Rift gate, being sent off into the unknown....

    Wow, didn't know some people use the word "tubular" anymore.

    Ilana missed a good decade.

    IT'S SNOWING!! (Incidentally, we got some snow this week here in the DC area).

    Not another flashback episode! ....Oh, guess not.

    Funny you should say that.

    Dang. Newton could give Dexter's dad a run for his money in snowball fighting.

    Why... didn't Octus think of that sooner? Then again, it wouldn't make for interesting enough character designs.

    Heck, couldn't he just have manifested his own tuxedo?

    But hey, Slim Newton is cool.

    Okay, that twist on the hold-up-the-boombox cliche was pretty damn good.

    Good deal on mattresses, cause they couldn't get the rights to Peter Gabriel.

    Well that's a downer for Octus.

    I just love that his expression never changes when he holds up the boom box. That's what makes it funny to me.

    Now Octus knows he has a heart. Because it's breaking.

    Maybe going to that mattress sale will cheer him up.

    It is a bitter sweet episode for me. I thought it was well written, it had some funny moment and yes Octus is becoming human, first of all was he reaction to his prank on Archie, and than the snowball. They should have done an episode when robots want to enslave humanity and try to put peer pressure on him to join his kind.

    But Newton and Kimmy broke up, my favorite couple, NO, NO, NOOOOOOO! God dam it, they should bring that henchmen back to life and kill him again, it is all his fault.

    My same thoughts exactly.

    Ok, maybe not the Dexter's part, but the snowbeatdown was awesome.

    I suppose he couldn't project one right out in the open, and blow everyone's cover. He was already being fitted by the tailor (who should have know better).

    On one hand, i do feel bad for poor... whatever robot type Octus is. Human emotions are hard enough to deal with already. A robot trying to understand and use them is tough. Add to the mix that his (ex?) girlfriend is right - Octus is keeping secrets from her. How can there be a true bond of trust, when that secret needs to be kept for her safety?

    On the other hand, it does avoid some particularly weird relationship issues.

    The breakup between Octus and Kimmy is really sad. They genuinely care about each other, but keeping this secret and having to leave before going to the dance was just too much for Kimmy to handle. Their relationship is my favorite aspect to this series since it does make Octus more human, so seeing the breakup is pretty sad. Hearing Octus call Kimmy all of those pet names at the beginning still makes me giggle. Illana using the dance to create her own harvest festival dance and not getting there in time was pretty sad, but at least that led to a nice moment between Lance and Illana.

    If there is a flaw for Sym-Bionic Titan, it's that they ignore Ilana's character arc in comparison to the other two, so she was hurting for an episode. True, most of the heartwrenching and emotional impact is the Octus/Kimmy romance, though that was equally as engaging. I adore them together and to see them break up is upsetting. However, I also love that Kimmy does have a legitimate justification for ending it instead of something cheap; Octus is keeping secrets from her and it's become so frequent that she suspects. He's not telling her - he can't tell her, and that's why it won't work out. I have no idea what would have happened between the two should Season Two had existed, but they've both come a long way to becoming better, rounded characters.

    However, they didn't skimp on Ilana's story either, even if it's a bit subdued in comparison to the Octus/Kimmy plot. She's homesick and the best way to cure the blues is to express her culture through a school dance. She puts so much effort into it with smashing success, so it's even more bittersweet when she doesn't get the chance to see how well it went. That's why this may also be my favorite ending of the show; Lance approaching Ilana to dance (especially after all his negativity earlier) as a kind gesture shows how far these two have come as well. It's a great feel-good moment and definitely one of the most heartwarming.
