Episode Summary

EDIT
Last Ditch Effort
AIRED:

The Z Fighters' sole good news right now is that they are still alive. Vegeta storms off to train harder and vent about his humiliating defeat. Piccolo also leaves, but is not forthcoming about why. Krillin, however, figures it out – he is going to ask Kami to reunite into one, powerful being. Kami is not surprised by this development, but he needs time to think about it. Tien decides to head off on his own, while Krillin and Trunks race to reach Goku's house. They have to get him and the others out of there before the three Androids arrive.

  • too much talk

    7.1
    Struggling to recover from their fight with the androids, Vegeta, Trunks, Tien, and Piccolo realize a grim truth: unless they can increase their powers quickly, they have no chance against the Android trio. In a drastic move, Piccolo flies to Kami's place high above the earth and makes a most unexpected proposal… he wants to fuse with KAMI!!!



    No fighting and too much talk but at least this leads back to piccolo bieng back into spot light.moreless
  • Well, I guess this ends the Maron fillers!

    8.2
    The androids make off. Krillin gives everyone senzu beans, and they wake up with disgruntled faces. Vegeta takes off, and Piccolo as well. Though Krillin has a hunch that he's going to Kami's lookout to reunite himself with him in order to become a stronger being. Piccolo arrives at the place, and Kami was fully expecting his arrival.



    Cluttered with filler, but the suspense was great. It did a good job of hyping up Piccolo's inevitable powerup. It's also even more exciting to see Piccolo finally being worthy competition ever since his last major fight with second form Frieza. The flashback of Piccolo's origins was pretty long winded, but in a sense, it did an all right job of suspense once again.



    The Maron fillers actually have done a good job of stalling things, and it also seems the Gohan, Yajirobe, baby Trunks, and Bulma, traveling have ended as well. They've all been effective fillers.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This is the first time in the anime that the term "Super Namek" has been named.

    • Vegeta was so badly wounded in his fight with Android 18 that he needed more than one Senzu Bean to fully recover. This is the only time in the series where someone has ever had to eat more than one Senzu Bean after being heavily damaged.

    • In the episode "Nightmare Comes True", Tien, Krillin, and Piccolo, split up the six Senzu Beans among themselves. However, in this episode, Krillin has all 6 of the Senzu when treating the injured warriors.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Trunks: I don't get it, it's strange. These androids are a lot stronger than the ones I fought in my time. The androids I fought were stronger than me but not by this much. The kind of strength these new androids have is off the charts!

    • Piccolo: Ever since Vegeta became a Super Saiyan, his ego has been out of control. Honestly, I think what that android hurt the most today was his pride. He is very ashamed of his defeat.

    • (After dropping Bulma off at her house and Mrs.Briefs offers them cake and cookies.)
      Gohan: I want to go see my father now.
      Yajirobe: No way! Cake and cookies first, then we go!

    • Vegeta: I'll show those androids! No one makes a fool of me! They'll pay for this. They should have finished me off when they had the chance!
