    So it's not Ego...but Mandala? But not this Mandala, because I get the feeling Marvel doesn't own "Gemini" (or Europa); let alone the fact that the team is extremely obscure. :sweat:

    I thought the first half was a little too random and had some pacing issues. The second half was more focused and was better for it.

    Ronan's resurrection was kind of silly and undermines the movie a little, but whatever. I'll see where they go with this.

    Drax was pretty cheerful and upbeat in his pre-tragedy days. I never thought I'd hear an anti-revenge moral come out of his mouth.

    If they're really going to keep this in continuity with the other shows, which a few sources confirmed it was, Ronan will have to live through this season in order for his appearance in Hulk and the Agents of SMASH to not be a(nother) HUGE continuity error.

    Yeah, but then you have Quill changing personalities twice basically. He starts off as Chris Pratt style, goes to the more traditional Star-Lord style and then goes back to Chris Pratt.

    I really enjoyed the episode, a lot of great development and the return of Ronan. Was it just me or did I detect some jealousy from Nebula when Ronan recalls Gamora but not her? Does Nebula maybe *like* Ronan? I mean, I think it would make a lot more sense as to why she would resurrect him. I mean, she had the universal weapon and the Dark Aster. She could've gone after Thanos or gotten some other minions to do that herself. But she specifically went out of her way to resurrect Ronan on Mandala and submitted to his will. Just saying.

    Also, Mandala is meant to be Ego, right? Or Ego's cousin maybe?

    I am pretty sure this "Cosmic Seed" Created more than just 2 Living planets (Mandala and Ego) There are probably hundreds of them around the universe . . .

    Episode 10 was pretty awesome/enjoyable,

    The Guardians: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot(his Pokemon talk is fun), awesome/enjoyable with Star-Lord, best funny superhero with the best funny lines:D.

    Cool to see Nebula who's awesome/hot, but both Gamora/Nebula are sisters, sweet.

    Mandala was awesome who bees an anti-hero for the Guardians, another living planet like Ego, cool.

    Both Gamora, Drax, and Rocket Raccoon in their crazy early selves attacking poor Star-Lord was enjoyable, Gamora was a villainess to an anti-heroine, nice.

    Cool to see Ronan the Accuser resurrected with a sweet new design:D, both Thanos, Ronan, and Nebula will be the major enemies of the series, sweet.

    Drax saying an Anti-Revenge Moral who's obsessed with revenge on Thanos, hehehe.

    Gamora vs. Nebula, awesome female fight!!!!!!


    Cool to see my favorite awesome supervillains Thanos, Ronan the Accuser, Nebula, Titus, The Collector, and Grandmaster play major roles in the new Marvel series:D.

    Nice hearing the awesome Cree Summer(Nebula), Will Friedle(Star-Lord), Kevin Richardson(Groot), and Pamela Adlon(Ma Raccoon/Sis Raccoon) play roles in it, yaaaaaaaay.

    I think they hinted at that more subtly in "The Backstabbers." Here, she was a straight up jealous girl. Was anyone else reminded of this when Nebula suddenly showed up and started hammering the Milano?

    Pretty good episode, overall. There were some parts which felt kind of forced though, mostly at the beginning with the characters acting a little too childish, and the humor wasn't as good as in previous episodes. Other than that, I don't really have any complaints since this was still pretty enjoyable.

    I was expecting Ego the Living Planet to appear so Mandala was a surprise. The bit with the characters reverting back to their older selves while on its surface was a pretty interesting twist. It did lead to some fun moments, but again some of the humor felt forced. Mandala just wanting to play with its inhabitants and acting immature didn't really help either. But there were some good gags, the one that stood out the most was probably Drax's line about revenge being a waste of time.

    Ronan's resurrection was handled well enough. I don't think it was that necessary to bring him back after the events of the movie, but it should be interesting to see how his return will affect future episodes. He could be a great adversary if used right. The Nebula and Gamora rivalry was pretty good this time as well, so I'm looking forward to more of that.

    Yeah, Nebula admitted she had a fondness for Ronan. It's a neat and pretty surprising angle.

    Well, not a bad episode, but for a plot that featured the return of the main villain of the film, I can't help but feel it wasn't as epic feeling as it could have been. Like everyone else is saying, the second half was much stronger than the first.

    I'm in favor of it. Will like to see if they take it beyond this though.
