Episode Summary

Act 4, Scene 15
In order to win Rose's affection and set up a number of dates with her, Jake enters the school play "Anthony and Cleopatra", with him and Rose playing the leads. However, there is a kissing scene (Act 4 Scene 15) and when rehearsing with Rose, Jake freaks out. To make matters worse, the Huntsclan are after a scarab beetle that Jake has, so Rose (a.k.a. Huntsgirl) naturally sees it when Jake brings her to the shop. What follows is a series of close shaves and hints to true identities, but neither of them guess the truth.moreless

  • Not the best episode but pretty good.

    In order to get closer to Rose Jake plays a lead part of a play so that he can be with Rose. Meanwhile both he and Huntsgirl (aka Rose) are both after a magical scarab beetle which can restore life and health to the sickly, dead, and dying. Despite the many close shaves with each others alternate idenities neither figures it out which sets into motion the plots for future episodes.moreless
  • Rose and Jake try out roleAct 4 Scene 15 . Huntsman try to capture the magical beetle that can bring back the dead in attempt to revive Huntsclan past generations . Jake suspicios Rose being Huntsgirl ?moreless

    Hmm this one really almost crack my stomach lol . I like it best when Jake and Rose were practicing Act 4 Scene 15 and they went across the Beetle . They change and wen after them , the thing is , they are together and they DIDN'T know a thing !!! We get to see Huntsclan past generations too . One of them was wearing a goat skull or something . IT didn't even look like a dragon skull . no Really !! Man this is really a funny episode . Too much humor and you can't miss it !!moreless
  • one of the best episodes soooooooo far!!!!

    this was a clasic epsacaily when rose was in tht arcade that was freakin hot!!! just the reason why i watch this series this was also the episode that i started to watch this series... another good part was the part when jake got his first date with rose witch was taken place in the begining of the ski trip . the sad parts where when rose/thorn hurt her knee , jake didn't get his first kiss with rose witch took place in the episode The Academy it was also sad that rose/thorns idenity was almost revealed

    it was revealed in the episode The Hunted that what i half to say about this episode peace outmoreless
  • Jake and Rose :D

    Jake and Rose star as Anthony and Cleopatra in a school play and one thing, they have to kiss. Jake and Rose are excited about this, but, they are both nervous. Also, Jake meets Rose's uncle, who she says to Jake is dangerous ( you will know why in later episodes). Jake and Rose try to kiss multiple times, but everything gets out of hand. Jake/Rose as mortal enemies always end up going outside and fighting eachother not knowing who either is. So Spud ends up in the play instead of Rose because of a broken leg and no kiss, but later, maybe.moreless
  • jake joins the school play

    this was an ok episode, the stuff with rose was cute but i would have prefred if he just told her, seeing her house was cool, and jakes nervousness was adorable. im glad he asked her on a date though, hes still unbelievably clueless, but that adds to his charm, so this one was only ok

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (10)

    • In the flashback showing the girls Jake has kissed before, his Aunt Patchouli is seen, however, Jake refers to her as "Aunt Patty".

    • When Jake sees the cast on Rose's leg at school he probably remembers that that was where Huntsgirl was shot and thinks it pretty unnerving.

      Or at least he should. He doesn't seem to notice.

    • When Huntsgirl is shot in the leg at the fight, as she reaches for her leg, her glove suddenly disappears, revealing her bare hand. The minute she grabs her knee, the glove is back!

    • Since Rose did not make it to the play and only Jake did, not knowing that Spud was taking over, he had to kiss him.

    • When Trixie spotted Jake and Rose practicing in her house and talked with Jake, Rose's bandana turns light blue until she turns her head.

    • While at Rose's house, Jake pulls a book off a bookshelf, and another bookshelf to the right of the viewer moves inwards, revealing some sort of tapestry. (Of course Jake replaces the book without knowing). Moments later, the Huntsman pulls the same book, but this time the bookshelf to the left moves inwards, revealing the same tapestry.

    • When Rose and Jake are at Trixie's house they see scarab beetle and go outside. When they come back in, how does Rose have time to change her hair back to normal?

    • When Rose/Huntsgirl and Huntsman disappear, didn't Jake notice when Rose was gone?

    • In this episode there is a full moon for five nights, full moons only last three nights.

    • Rose is shot in the upper thigh, but holds onto her ankle. Her cast is also put on her ankle.

  • NOTES (8)


    • In Shakespeare's times, female roles were played by men (similar to how Spud played Cleopatra).

    • Voices

      Coincidentally or not, Dante Basco (the voice of Jake) and Mae Whitman (Rose/Huntsgirl) also play arch enemies Katara and Prince Zuko, who like Jake has magic fire power, on Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    • Title: Star Wars: Epsiode V
      When Huntsman's helmet being lowered down onto his head it looks a lot like a scene in Star Wars: Episode V, where Darth Vader's helmet is lowered onto his own head, pretty much the same way.
