    this episode is awesome and two people overcome thier doubts in it this episode proves that tai makes the best decisions and that matt deserves the crest of friend ship and sora the crest of love. it surprises me that matt can be so caring. no wonder he married sora at the end of season 2. but wish all the chosen digimon could transform to mega level not just agumon and gabumon. digimon is truly one of the greatest animes ever and it trul deserves an award. i dont usually say this but kudos to digimon. (man writing a review is so fun)moreless
  • Matt has a problem with himself and he's gonna overcome the darkness. How is he gonna do it?

    Great episode! Okay, let's see what this episode is about. Tai's Agumon digivolving to WarGreymon to fight Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters but is having troubles with the fact he's powerful!!!!!! Meanwhile Sora and T.K is trying to find Mimi, Joe and Matt. Matt is seen with Gabumon in this episode in his darkness, turns out that he has problems that he thought T.K needed him and he had to protect him but instead is the opposite........He thought he was alone and that nobody cared for him ever since his family broke up.......Luckily Gabumon helped him overcome the darkness in him in the end. Matt is kinda like me since I don't like to socalise too much and that's why he's one of my favourite characters besides Joe!!! I won't spoil the episode too much now, but it's great to watch. You don't have to be a Digimon fan to watch it(since I can't remember all the names of the Digimon)......the thing is you will enjoy the episode!!

    Final rating: 8.3 to 8.5moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Not long before Matt and the others show up, Piedmon attacks WarGreymon with his Trump Swords attack. However, he does not use this attack but instead shoots a powerful gust of wind and rocks at Tai and WarGreymon.

    • At the very end of the episode, when it shows WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon stepping forward, the plates on Wargreymon's calves turn gray.

    • When WarGreymon is fighting Piedmon by himself, he uses only his 'Great Tornado' attack, yet when he uses it, he calls it 'Terra Force' and then later calls it 'Mega Claw' this was stated in "The Ultimate Clash" episode.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Tai: (about Piedmon) I've got him right where I want him. He's exhausted!
      Izzy: But I can help you!
      Tai: I'm fine!
      Izzy: That's funny. General Custer said the exact same thing at Little Bighorn.
      Tai: Thanks for the history lesson.

    • Matt: I've never let anyone get close to me before, not since my family split up. Ever since then, I've been alone. I figured if my family didn't want me, then I would just keep to myself and never tell anyone what I was feeling, and I swore I would never let anyone see me cry. (voice cracking) But really, all I wanted to do was cry.
      Gabumon: Then cry.
      Matt: (sobbing) I hate being alone!

    • (Matt and Joe try to move Sora, but she doesn't budge.)
      Matt: She's stuck!
      Joe: It took four of us to get my grandma off the toilet like that.

    • Matt: Let's make a promise that we'll always be there for each other no matter what happens. Gabumon and Matt, friends for life!
      Gabumon: Mmmm.
      Matt: What do you say? Do we have a deal? A handshake makes it official.
      Gabumon: Will a pawshake do?

    • Gabumon: Don't you understand, Matt? You've got to quit comparing yourself to Tai. You're not him. It's like ice cream. He's vanilla, and you're rocky road.

    • Matt: I'm no good. I can never go back to being their friend.
      Gabumon: You have to! Don't you understand that if the eight of you don't get back together the digital world will be destroyed forever?
      Matt: They don't need me, and besides, seven is a luckier number than eight.

    • Matt: I've been living a lie.
      Gabumon: You're not a real blonde?

    • Piedmon: Once upon a time, there were these digidestined. And then Piedmon destroyed them all. The end.
      Izzy: No offense to your story-telling skills, but I'd like it better if the ending were different.
      WarGreymon: It will be!

    • TK: Hey, Matt, you look different. Did you cut your hair or something?
      Matt: Nah, I just haven't been using as much gel.

  • NOTES (5)


    • Sora: There's no place like home, there's no place like home...
