Great to see Fancy again. His delivery of "Sexy people have feelings too" was priceless, completely without irony, with an on-the-verge-of-tears quaver at "feelings". I'm sorry we lost Zeph's restoration so quickly; it was so nice having the core team back together again. I mean, I assume she'll get her memories back again soon, but, her remembering Pippin and Dutch was so good, I don't know how I feel about having to see another version of it in a different episode.

Fancy is priceless. I think we may have lost Zeph. The episode seemed like it was giving her a sense of closure and that Stinky may be a character whose arc resolves in her death. Come to think of it I am wondering if John makes it through the season. I have a suspicion that we may lose a quite a few friends in this last season.

Fast paced, plot advancing, a punch in the feels (Pip!) that was a rollercoaster of an episode.

I think it was a missed opportunity aging up the actress who plays the Lady so quickly, but I understand why it was done.

I suspect that Kline will not make it out of the season alive and this time his Death will stick.

I'm enjoying Khlyen this season. I'm not sure if the Lady drained his powers, or if she's just so much tougher than him (along with whatever is in that ankle bracelet) that he can't take her on head-to-head. Either way, he can't just fight and/or sneak his way out. He's genuinely trapped. But he's centuries old, a lot of it doing stuff that makes the Lady's plans look kind of simple (he spent twenty years getting Dutch ready for the Green, but the Lady wants to do Waverly in 27 days. What, did she only rent the ship for a month?), so it's fun to watch him keep her off balance until he can figure out what to do next.

Fancy was/is absolutely perfect and everything else was very solid. My only gripe is that I feel like if we have too many scenes of The Lady ineffectually threatening Khlyen without getting anywhere she's gonna start to seem a lot less scary. Her ratio of "dramatically storming in/dramatically storming out" to "actually accomplishing anything meaningful" this episode was...not great.

I think we may have lost Zeph. The episode seemed like it was giving her a sense of closure and that Stinky may be a character whose arc resolves in her death.

It did not occur to me that might be the last we see of Zeph. I gotta think that Team AwesomeForce will make at least some effort to track her down now that the rest of them are fixed. In the long run, though, you may be right - this doesn't seem like a show where nobody will die towards the end, and it does feel a bit like Zeph's shot at a lasting happy ending died with Pip.

Johnny sure as hell better survive though! Still waiting for him to be properly reunited with his one true love, Lucy. (Lucy passive-aggressively giving Davin all kinds of unhelpful "help" was another standout hilarious moment from this episode.)

Of course we will see Zeph again. She carved the symbol of the No Entry sign on her arm, which will led Stinky to her lab and she will restore her memories.
