this one should be good. I mean it stars Jasiri, and Jasiri is the best new character introduced by the show.

Ep was the best of the three so far...

Also I like how they hinted towards Janja and his clan turning against Scar and joining the hyena resistance.

I swear they need to be able to solve problems without Ono magically seeing the problem. Yes, he's the Keenest of Sight, but some episodes make it seem like he can see halfway across Africa. Although maybe they really were just five seconds away since that's how long it took Kion and his friends to get there and rescue Jasiri.

It was a good episode. I shouldn't nitpick.

Hopefully Janja and his clan are redeemed, as they've really worn out their welcome as villains and I think having them be good guys in season three would be a refreshing change of pace.

Actual plot stuff happens, so that's cool. Having Jasiri's clan actually involved in the conflict is a pretty logical next step so I wasn't exactly surprised by it, and the way the rest of the episode plays out makes it fairly routine fare after the resistance is formed. The moment at the end with Janja was the more significant and interesting part in my opinion, although I somehow doubt they're going to make a move on that any time particularly soon; the only saving grace in that regard is that the skinks were conveniently around to foreshadow Scar learning about this, but we don't really have a solid idea of the relationship between the two characters; the most interesting stuff happens offscreen. Still, I get the sense that this'll be the turning point against Scar, having his forces basically fall apart beneath him. Whether this happens before season 2 ends I don't know, but I do wonder if he'll replace them. (Perhaps with a certain group of lions?)

Overall, better episode than the previous two in more or less all regards (I really like the score in the montage bit with the repeated failed attacks) although it wasn't as much as I expected.

Side note, I find it weird how nobody's really been explaining how Scar has "returned". Like, Jasiri tells her clan that (verbatim) and everyone just accepts and presumably knows what that means without question. Are they that familiar with ghosts/spirits that it's just common knowledge that this sort of thing happens?

This is exactly what I was afraid of...

Otherwise a decent episode, better than the last two at least. Song was nothing special, but they haven't been for a long time. Some of the extras in Jasiri's clan were cute, I'd like to maybe see some development for them. Maybe the Hyena Resistance could eventually be formed into a proper Hyena Guard.

THAT was a really AWESOME episode, MUCH better than the last one. I enjoyed it, and I liked how it showed a good example how its right even help your enemies, out that is a high positive for the kids to see that we should love our enemies am I right?

I see where you are coming from and I agree with you ;)

It also shows what a wonderful Hyena Jasiri truly is to save an enemy that tried to kill her (and two innocent cubs) without a moments hesitation. Granted she then tried to recruit him into The Hyena Resistance, but when Janja called for help. All Jasiri did was react with genuine concern.

I absolutely loved this episode, we got to see (I assume) what Scar was planning in the previous episode.

The Song was Awesome :thumbsup: :egojasiri:

This episode also leads me to believe things that I had only speculated on or doubted before.

I am quite certain that Simba does indeed know about Jasiri and the fact that she is a Hyena.

I now Believe that Jasiri is The Leader of her Clan. Thus I assume that Wema and Tunu were orphans that were taken in by Jasiri's Clan.

Another thing I liked was while I am sure the operatives on The Hyena Resistance can and do alternate between the members of Jasiri's Clan. The Hyena Resistance Team itself consists of Jasiri, Madoa, and 3 Others A total of 5 like The Lion Guard.

As for Janja It is most likely that he was trying to cover his own tail, but by allowing Scar to Believe that Jasiri was dead. Could he have been protecting Jasiri?

Like others have said The stage has definitely been set for Janja's Clan to switch sides. If that should happen I agree with Panpardus. Scar bringing in The Outsiders would make the most sense. I would love to see Scar and Zira interact. However I think Zira would want to keep Vitani, Nuka, and especially Kovu out of Scar's army. As letting her cubs see Demon/Scar would destroy the image of Scar she wants them to have. Therefore what would be done with them during Zira's involvement in Scar's War would be an issue.

As for the possibility of Jasiri and Janja falling in love...That now seems like much less of a stretch story-wise than I thought. Seeing as how Jasiri harbors no ill will toward Janja.
