    Rocket and Cosmo actually getting along, and Rocket being pro-Cosmo, was certainly a fun change of pace. I guess not having to think of Cosmo peeking into his head with his telepathy, not to mention Cosmo managing to save the day in the last episode, really changed his opinion of the 'mutt. At least until Cosmo got his powers back of course, and ruining Rocket's big, emotional, speech. Though somehow I'm sure deep-down he and Cosmo are pretty much friends now ;).

    So...how exactly did the Believers turn the populace into zombies under their thrall? They never really explained that. It seemed to have something to do with the ship being lodged into the Celestial head, and the sparks that were flowing through it, but it wasn't really addressed. And how were the Believers able to get the Cocoon out of Xandar, and out of the Nova Corps. custody, and onto their flagship? So many questions :confused:.

    I was wondering how much experience with Zombies Quill could have given how young he must have been when the Ravagers abducted him, and probably before the "zombie phase" the media had entered into to where he would likely have been more exposed to that kind of content...and then it turns out his biggest influence was Thriller :p.

    I half expected them to play Thriller in this episode, but they probably don't have enough money to cover the royalties for that, I'm guessing. At least they managed to fit in a Michael Jackson alien, right down to the moon-walking :rolleyes2:.

    I wonder if all the Guardians have wanted to inflict bodily harm on Quill at some point? Not that I should be too surprised, I guess :sweat:.

    Did anyone else notice Peter seemed to be resisting the Believers' control over him? He seemed to be struggling with what he was doing more then the others were, though nothing seemed to come out of it before everyone was freed from under the Believers' power o_O.

    I was wondering how the Guardians were going to get by without their leader for most of the episode, but (unsurprisingly) they seemed to manage pretty well, though Quill still ended up contributing to the group's overall victory :cool:.

    (Gulp). Looks like it's time to finally sees what lies inside the Cocoon :eek:.

    My least favorite of the batch. I'm not a fan of most zombie films (and yeah, these weren't literal zombies, but still). Peter's Zombie Survival tape was a funny idea, though, even if Drax is the only person who would take it seriously.

    This was a fun zombie episode with Peter, Gamora, and Cosmo's infections slowly reducing the team. I enjoyed the Thriller reference. I really liked how Rocket started to appreciate Cosmo more and more over time.

    The ending was quite exciting when Cosmo seemingly sacrificed himself, but instead, overloaded his powers. I knew the cocoon opening up wouldn't be a bad thing, but for the characters, it was certain doom if it opened and they had no way to stop it.

    This had an interesting concept for a zombie attack but overall I didn't find the episode as exciting as the others before. Still it had some nice moments. Quill's zombie survival guide lead to some pretty amusing scenes, especially when Drax tried to follow those rules. And it was cool that Cosmo got his powers back already, and another neat cliff-hanger ending.

    Cast list:

    Will Friedle - Star-Lord A.K.A. Peter Quill
    Trevor Devall - Rocket Raccoon, Gate Operator, Zombies
    Kevin Michael Richardson - Groot, Broker, Blood Brothers, Zombies
    Vanessa Marshall - Gamora, Zombies
    David Sobolov - Drax, Zombies
    James Arnold Taylor - Cosmo, Knowhere, Zombies
    Jennifer Hale - Mantis

    I was highly amused by one of the Believer zombies chucking Rocket like a football, and also more furry bromance between Cosmo and Rocket.

    I must've missed it, but how did the Believers get the cocoon back on Knowhere from the Nova Corp. HQ? Can the cortex so easily zap it out of there? Seems awfully convenient.

    Uggggggh, zombies. Hell, even comedy zombies are stale at this point.

    ...Does anyone know how they got the cocoon? Is that explained in the next episode?

    I kinda laughed at Cosmo entering the Avatar State at the end of the episode.

    They didn't. They also didn't really explain how the zombies happened, so this was more of a "just go with it" kind of episode :sweat:.

    It was a little clunky. I think the implication was that the Believers used Cosmo's cortex (his teleportation zap device) to get to the Nova Corp. HQ where they retrieved the cocoon and stole it. But it all happened off-screen, so it was tough to connect the dots. I was highly confused by this as well.
