    This episode was excellent. But I think this show need season 3 because I think the story is incomplete.
  • Great episode and the series finale.... for now

    This was one of the best episodes there was in the series but it didn't really seem like that Rose moving would have been the best plot back in Homecoming. However this episode shows that they were still able to make a great "series" finale from it. So this episode is basically where Jake, Gramps, Jonathan, Susan, Fu, Spud, Trixie and Haley all go to Hong-Kong on vacation, But Gramps is kidnapped and Jake must figure out a way to save him. Jake also remembers that Rose is in Hong-Kong and it is great of how they were able to tie Rose back into the show. I'm not going to spoil the ending, but although this wasn't the best episode to be the "series" finale it was a great episode nonetheless.moreless
  • Great plot but too rushed

    8.0
    I honestly admit that it was awesome! Dark dragon is back and Gramps is captured and Jake needs to put a mind control potion into the meeting of all the dragons in the world and in order to defeat the Dark dragon he must find someone who is more experienced on fighting dragons and that would be Rose and he tries to regain her memory but fails but he leaves his picture with rose in her apartment, thus making rose remember and help him, meanwhile Jake's dad finds out the truth and it all leaves to a happy ending.



    It was really Rushed it all happened in one night and what happened to Jake and Rose in the end? were they reunited? it just doesn't summarized everything but it was a good endingmoreless
  • Visit to hong kong, secrets revealed, return of the dark dragon, world class betrayel and lovers reunited lets face it... ITS AWSOME!

    The episode was the pinnacle of the American dragon series. The role of all charecters were fine. I was quite antisipating Roses return. The selection of the #1 most greatest threat to the magical world(dark dragon) as the final villian was awsome. Ever since i read about the summary in wikipedia i was waiting for its rerun(i missed the first airring of all episodes). Its really a great episode.Althogh the ending and length of the episode dissapointed me.Its still a great finnale. Without a doubt(for me)it is the best american dragon : jake long episode in any way or in any day.moreless
  • Jake's family and friends take a trip to Hong Kong for some relaxation, sight-seeing, and dragon business. But when the Dark Dragon and Chang show up and kidnap Grandpa, Jake's given the ultimatum.moreless

    This episode would be good for a season finale, but as a series finale, it was just weak. The plot was not written believable enough, too many facts were squeezed into this one episode. I must admit, I enjoyed some of these facts like Jake's dad finally becoming aware that he married into a family of dragons and the return of Rose. Unfortunately there will be no ongoing plot of these new plot changes due to the fact that Disney ended the series. These changes would have been perfect to segue into a new season, though this did and will not happen. Jake's new life will no longer be explored upon by Disney.moreless

    • Rose's parents don't speak at all, despite being in this episode.

    • Fu Dog says that the Dark Dragon is the only dragon that has ever turned evil. However, Chang, who is also a dragon, is evil. (Reply: It's possible that Fu meant that the Dark Dragon was the first dragon who ever went bad on his own. While Chang was no doubt corrupted by the Dark Dragon)

    • Rose returns in this episode.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Jake: Dad, you just found out today you married into a family of magical reptiles. You seem to be taking it pretty well.
      Jonathan: I don't know. I guess, deep down, I always knew there was something magical about my family.
      Jake: Trust me , there something magical about you too.

    • Jonathan: Jake! Where is he?
      Fu: He's in some serious trouble John, can I call you John? We haven't really talked much before now, but I...feel like I know you.

    • Jonathan: (Driving) Okay one more question, are unicorns real?
      Fu: Sure.
      Jonathan: Fairies?
      Fu: You bet.
      Jonathan: Gnomes, Elves, Mermaids?
      Fu: Yes, yes, and yes.
      Jonathan: Santa Clause?
      Fu: Just keep your eyes on the road and your foot on the pedal will yah!?

    • Jonathan: I have another question, it's just bothering me, when they turn into dragons what happens to their clothes?

    • Spud: (To Dark Dragon) Question, is the bad guy laugh really necessary? I mean come on, it's such a cliche, or...is it a stereotype?
      Trixie: Spud! Now is not the time!!

    • Jake: It's just...you won't believe me.
      Rose: I'm pretty open-minded. Give it a shot.
      Jake: Okay, here it goes... the happy life that you're living now is an alternate reality that I wished for you. You're actually a mythical dragon slayer who was kidnapped by the Huntsclan, and trained since birth to fight and slay dragons. I need you to come with me tonight to Victoria Peak, to slay the Dark Dragon in order to save my grandfather and possibly the entire Magical World!
      Rose: Yeah, I'm not that open-minded.

    • Jake's Mom: Would someone please tell me what's going on here?
      Fu Dog: Long story, short. Gramps has been captured by the Dark Dragon who's forcing Jake to slip a mind control potion to all the worlds dragon at a secret meeting tonight!
      Jake's Mom: Oh. You'd think I'd get use to this kind of thing by now.

    • Jake: We have to rescue grandpa before the eclipse tonight. It's our only chance!
      Spud: Yeah, we gotta fight the Dark Dragon! And by we, I mean mostly Jake and the other dragons.

    • Fu: Yeah but here's the good news, the eclipse only lasts a couple of hours. Kinda like most of my romantic attachments!

  • NOTES (8)

    • The soundtrack of the scene in which the Dragon's Temple starts to disappear and the vortex opens to swallow it is the same one from "Batman: The Animated Series".

    • When Rose makes her comeback at the temple, she wears a new huntsgirl uniform. Instead of a Huntsclan uniform, she wears a dark-purple shirt and pants, a belt, a leather jacket, a pair of black gloves, and a pair of black boots with heels. She still braids her hair though

    • This is the only episode that doesn't take place in America whatsoever.

    • Credits: Shown were some scenes from previous times we've shared in the second season. References from "The Doppelganger Gang", "Nobody's Fu", "Something Fishy This Way Comes", "Furious Jealousy", "Haley Gone Wild", "Bite Father Bite Son", "Switcheroo", "Year of the Jake", "Being Human", "Young at Heart", "Magical Enemy #1", "A Befuddled Mind", "Hairy Christmas", "Half-Baked", and "Love Cruise" were all presented.

    • This is the first time we see Councilor Omina in her dragon form.

    • Apparently, the Huntsclan was a worldwide organization.

    • Rose regains her memory of her alternate-reality past in New York by looking at the dance picture Jake was carrying in his pocket.

    • This is the proposed series finale although it wasn't advertised as such on the Disney Channel.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The title of this episode, "Hong Kong Longs", is similar to the episode "Hong Kong Nights", in which the Dark Dragon also made an appearance.
