Well, the first half of this episode was good. Running through an ancient ship, exploring the ruins of a bygone era, and watching out for enemies while racing for the treasure. It’s exciting!
Then, when they finally reach the treasure… oh no! The enemies have arrived! And we’re about to have an awesome battle! In fact, we see five seconds of an awesome battle…
But then we wake up. Marika and the leader of the other ship had plotted behind the princess’ back to resolve thing peacefully. Everyone is now happily driving the ship together towards Serenity.
Come on! An occasional anticlimax can be surprising and clever. But this… this is just trolling. Please can we get one story arc where we don’t cop out and magically make everyone get along? I don’t want everything to just work out, even if you’re a pirate!
