    Toonami premieres yet another Total Immersion Event, and it's not another copout sequel to The Intruder this time!

    [​IMG]

    Previously: TOM had vaporized The Intruder once and for all--along with the Absolution--and narrowly escaped with SARA to a desert planet and settled in a secluded base called the Vindication. After staying on the planet for a year, they encountered strange weather phenomena and the sandworms that inhabited the planet's underground. After fully bringing SARA back online, they realized that the Vindication is actually a giant spaceship and the sandworms were warning them that the planet was dying. They escape and bring along with them the last surviving member of the species, whom they name Georgia.

    Now: A bomb is discovered on the Vindication, which is set to explode in 24 hours, and TOM is attacked by his own Clydes. TOM has to make sure the Vindication is safe and the bomb doesn't go off.

    Enjoy the four-part event starting tonight at 11PM! Only Toonami.

    Nothing. Adult Swim will be playing the ATHF Movie after Toonami ends.

    This has nothing to do with the British game show, I take it?

    I hope we don't lose the Vindication. I like the Vindication.

    Kuroneko 68 or Kamineko 68?

    Ah, I remember Toonami art submissions.

    Well...that's one way to get things going.

    What just happened? That was a strange first episode. Surely the second episode will explain what's going on.

    It's either time travel or alternate dimensions...

    It looks like some sort of time travel shenanigans.

    This TIE has an interesting hook in that the first episode is quite ambiguous. Is that an evil TOM from the future/alternate dimension, a well-mentioned extremist TOM?

    I took it as TOM was stuck in the past for a long time and came back after being gone for years. It could be an alternate version of TOM too. It was a more interesting first episode than the previous event had.

    The Clydes can talk now, huh?

    Future TOM is so confusing.
