In this episode, a dramatic save, a fiery sibling exchange, several evolution sequences, a mode change and the inevitable build up to the most important lesson of them all: adulting is hard.
In this episode, while everything builds to a boil in the real world, Mysterious Man throws Taichi and Daigo into a spontaneous morality game with no good outcomes. Live or die- it’s your choice.
In this episode, the barrier between worlds weakens and Taichi poofed away before everyone’s eyes. Best thing you can say about the team’s mentality is they haven’t split up yet to get stuck in a restaurant, castle, or dimensional void. That’s an improvement!
In this episode, Taichi’s fall leads everyone to go full protagonist- the new girl wants her partner dead, the mid-season addition prompts a dark evolution, and the rival wears the goggles.
In this episode, the eight digidestined cope with their lack of control by sitting down and projecting all their problems onto the new girl. Daigo meanwhile projects all his onto the eight digidestined.
In this episode, everybody's trapped in their own happy world where their families are either reunited or removed and where they can watch themselves get crucified in peace.
