  • This episode was kind of good.

    I had high hopes for this episode, but I was not that disappointed. I hoping that they would get there new outfits in that episode but they did not. I was also hoping that would be new monsters but there was not. But it was still a good episode. It was the best season opener yet. In this episode, Jeremie and Aelita recreate Sector 5 and William is devirtualized. Also Sissi decides to make herself "editor-in-chief" of Kadic News, much to the dismay of Milly and Tamiya. She bothers Aelita trying to interview her, but is stopped by William. Then William kidnaps Aelita and takes her to be thrown into Lyoko's digital sea, but Odd manages to stop him and William returns to the digital sea. Jeremie concludes that this is Xana's new strategy, and that they must be careful. This was overall a good episode and I can't wait for the rest of Season 4.moreless

  • New episode after a long time.

    This episode was great after the long wait for a new episode. William sort of returns, but is actually XANA. It’s weird how no one figured it out after the whole encounter before. So anyway he takes Aeilta to Sector 5 to try to get rid of her and toss her into the digital sea. His plain is foiled when Odd saves her though. William falls into the digital sea, but he is not gone yet. My favorite part of this episode was when Yumi fell down and it was so dramatic and everything. I also like the fact that they don’t have to press the button when they go into Sector 5; it was smart of Jeremy and Aeilta to do that. So, it was a superb episode.moreless
  • william returns clearly controlled by xiana and tries to do away with ailita

    clearly the best episode so far I can't wait for the next episode this clearly is going to be the best season yet hope they can keep it up hope they don't have a lot of filers I just hate when the creators do that it's what changes a good show into a bad one I wonder how jeremie is going to re design lyoko and if he's going to change the way they look there to william of course has clearly had a make over this might be the season where they finally so what the net looks like I'vebeen waiting for that moment for forevermoreless
  • Aelita and Jeremy are able to revive Sector 5. In doing this, William returns; but as a prisoner of XANA.

    That’s awesome how Aelita and Jeremy can recreate Lyoko using Franz Hopper’s data. Too bad they were only able to recreate Sector 5 for the time being. It is cool how they were able to get rid of the key that would turn off a time limit. That was always really stressful. Millie and Tamia still get on my nerves. They were cute and funny in the beginning, but now they’re just plain annoying. I can’t believe Sissie wanted to become the editor in chief of the school paper. I feel sorry for Odd because Sissie overheard him talking about Jim being a disco dancer and she put it on the front page of the paper. I felt even sorrier for him when Jim tried to make him dance the same scene in front of him. It was funny seeing all those girls run into the gym to see Jim. They liked his video and they were fans. At the end of the episode, he even gave a show for the kids to enjoy. It was funny how Odd was poking William to make sure he wasn’t one of XANA’s ghosts. I think my heart skipped a beat when William came into Aelita’s room and told her that he was now a prisoner of XANA’s. I do like how he has the XANA symbol on his chest. It makes him look cooler. His “super-smoke” power is cool. It reminds me of Ulrich’s super sprint. The scene in the desert sector (or what was left of it) was scary. William wanted to throw Aelita into the digital sea. Yumi tried to help her, but she fell off the overwing. Odd was there to hit her with lazer arrows so she was devirtualized and not lost forever. He was also there to catch Aelita when she fell off the manta.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Even though William's long sleeve undershirt is red, you can see it briefly turn to black when he does a knocking the head gesture while explaining what he remembers of his trip to Lyoko.

    • As Aelita is being virtualized into Lyoko, her wire frame is bent over and the arms are down, but her avatar is unchanged in other episodes.

    • The part where a relieved Jeremie falls back in his lab chair is a recycled scene from the first season episode, Log Book.

    • As William is flying over the Digital Sea and Yumi is giving chase, Aelita wakes up. However, there is a shot after Odd devirtualizes Yumi where you can see that she is out again.

    • Aelita was clearly knocked out by William when he was preparing to bring her to Lyoko, yet she was standing up in the scanner while the two were being virtualized.

    • After Jeremie say that he and Aelita have to work on recreating the rest of Lyoko, you'll see that Odd's pink undershirt is missing in the next shot.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Sissi: (to Hervé and Nicolas) Quiet, huh, I can't hear anything.
      Hervé: Well, if you can't here anything, then we should speak louder, shouldn't we?
      Sissi: Dork, it's not you I want to listen to.

    • Yumi: Anyhow, you're just in time for a quiz in math.
      William: Timing huh? I haven't studied at all.
      Yumi: So? Since when have you ever studied?

    • (After William plunges into the digital sea)
      Ulrich: You think William's gone forever?
      Jeremie: No. I think he just went back to his new master--X.A.N.A.

    • (William escapes and Ulrich is now surrounded by creepers)
      Ulrich: And I thought this was going to be easy.

    • Odd: I didn't get here too late I hope.
      Jeremie: Odd, it's about time! What were you doing, huh?
      Odd: I was taking a disco dancing class.
      Jeremie: Right, now get to the scanner room. You're going to go on a little trip.
      Odd: Funky.

    • Odd: Bonzai!
      (Shoots a few arrows at William's Manta... then catches Aelita after she's knocked off)
      Odd: I hate to cut in William, but Aelita has always preferred the company of a real gentleman.
      (Fires another laser arrow destroying the Manta)
      Odd: Sorry, but I hate being tailgated.

    • Odd: Aelita, Jeremie, you guys are gods.
      Jeremie: Well, almost, but not quite.
