Interesting episode. Certainly not what I was expecting.
The whole thing with Red Axe was odd in that he at first appears to be a total slimeball, just cashing out on the Samurai Flamenco thing for all it’s worth. Then he is moved to tears and does a complete about face.
The policeman thinks he’s lying through his teeth, but I’m not entirely sure. Well, he certainly is lying through his teeth about his motivations. There’s just no way that teaching our hero a lesson was anywhere in his plans. However, his apology does seem genuine.
Claiming Samurai Flamenco is his “student” at the end was pretty funny. This guy’s great at PR.
The weirdest thing about the whole episode is how the manager refuses to cash in on this new found fame. What does she have against superheroes? Seems like the perfect opportunity to turn this guy into a full-fledged celebrity. Yet she seems to want to avoid all the attention. I don’t get it.
