Piccolo tells Garlic Jr. that him acting like a mindless zombie was all an act in order to deceive him to free Mr. Popo and Kami. Krillin was also in it when Piccolo was able to grab hold of him before. Garlic Jr. tells them it's too late to save the planet anyways, but Mr. Popo proposes a plan; to unleash the sacred water within the seven air currents of the world, which are connected to the lookout. Garlic Jr. tries stopping them, but Piccolo picks a fight, as well as Gohan and Krillin. The three appeared to have won, until the Makio star appears above the three, enhancing their power tenfold.
Step up from the lackluster and craptacular servings of the previous episodes in this filler arc. Though that's only because we don't get to see more dragged out fighting between evil Piccolo and Gohan defending himself against him. The fighting in this episode still felt dragged out and didn't feel engaging at all. Only good parts were the beginning and the end, and also Vegeta owning all those squid like warriors on that comet.
