  • Arukenimon sends the DigiDestend an e-mail, wanting them to meet her at the Giga house. She also sends Ken one. Davis, Ken and Cody enter first, overcoming dangers, and eventually come face to face wih Arukenimon, who traps them on a giant web, while themoreless

    I think this episode was way cool. Mainly because of the way Cody helped Ken and vice versa. I also liked the way the scenes led up to Arukenimon trapping them on the web. What I found most odd was that a tape recorder was out in the open, and recorded the DigiDestend like that, and it was just convient for Arukenimon to be out there and happen to see it. It was just ironic in my opinion. I don\'t blame Ken for wanting to go in alone, but I could see where Davis was coming from, but, then again, I like a little Ken/Arukenimon tension.moreless

    • The plot of the episode could be an allusion to the popular tale of: "The Pied piper of Hamelin"

      The man who played the flute used his flute to control and lure the rats to the river where they all drowned. The Townspeople had promised him to pay him, but at the end they failed at their promise. The man left angrily, but returned later seeking revenge. This time, he used his musical magic to attract the children of the town. One hundred and thirty boys and girls followed him out of the town, where they were lured into a cave and never seen again.

    • Davis: It reminds of this book called Gulliver's Travels, it's about this kid sells an old cow for some magic beans and ends up fighting this giant.
      Cody: Nuh-uh, that's Jack and the Beanstalk, silly

      Cody's is right. Jack and the Beanstalk is an English tale published in "English fairy tales" by Joseph Jacobs in 1890.

      Gulliver's travels is actually a Parody/Satire Novel written in 1726. The Novel satires Human nature and it's a Parody of travelers tales. It was written by Jonathan Swift.
