  • Ended well, with a moral too.

    Rath discovers a way to defeat Arakh; through his scorpian charm. Though it was left at the museum, and the exhibit was being shipped out due to unfortunate events in the past. The mummies do their best to retreive the item, but Scarab and Arakh get to it first. They initiate step two of their plan, which is use Kimas to lure Jakal into their trap. It was successful, and had Jakal laying on the floor surrounded by cheptes, but Kimas realizes the truth behind his father's hatred for his brother, and changes allegiances once again. The other mummies, suspicious of Kimas' character, came to backup Jakal, and did it well. Arakh and Jakal were going at it one on one, but Kimas took his father down, and destroyed the scorpion charm that sent both of them back to the Western Gate.

    The ending of this little arc felt like your usual Mummies Alive ending. Even though this was two more episodes longer than the usual servings from this cartoon, it felt liked it ended too soon. Maybe another episode and the ending would have felt more appropriate, but you can't help but feel there could have been more material inserted in between to expand upon the feeling. However, the whole moral and message of the heart of the arrow, which is also this episode's name, was brilliantly done. This idea of Jakal's was at first, contradicted because Kimas did indeed betray him, but he was strong enough to endure the evil, and held onto good. The ending of Presley firing the bow into the gate was also very well done. Overall, this small arc felt like it ended sooner than it should have, but it was still a pretty entertaining one.moreless
