    This was my favorite episode when I was a kid, but now it's just a good episode. I have other favorites now. But the reason I think I loved it so much as a kid was because of the Panther Queen story at the beginning of the episode. I really like how the story was engrained into the regular Gargoyles episode. It had a different animation style to it, which made it work very well. I really like the fact that we have a pair of parent/child relationships going on in the episode. The only difference between them is that Angela is demanding more from Goliath while Elisa's mom, Diane, is the one demanding more from Elisa. All Angela & Diane want is more trust & truth, while Elisa & Goliath are having a hard time with the concept of changing their ways. Everything works out in the end, which is nice. Goliath finally acknowledges Angela as his daughter, which is something she's been after for a while in the show, & Elisa finally tells the entire truth about the gargoyles to her mother. I also like that Anansi was thrown into this entire mix. What's a good story without a trickster at the heart of it?moreless
