  • A lesser Nautilus episode buoyed up by its build up for the climax of this arc.

    Jean's latest mini-glider goes out of control and accidentally alerts Gargoyle to the Nautilus. Nadia's detestation for Nemo and his crew intensifies, as does her misplaced jealousy of Jean's friendship with Electra. But she realizes she may have been wrong about both the Nautilus and Jean's reasons for spending time with the First Officer. Meanwhile, Gargoyle's forces prepare to close in on Nemo and the Nautilus.

    This is probably my least favorite of the Nautilus episodes. It's good, in that it provides some interesting turning points, but after the wonder that was the last two episodes, it's a bit disappointing that this one is less lively and not so imaginative. That said, it does benefit from having a solid build-up for the climax of the "Nautilus" arc; the last few minutes where the Garfish prepare to attack is quite a cliffhanger.moreless

    • (Nadia lashes out hideously at Nemo and the crew)
      Electra: Nadia, I find your behavior at this moment quite offensive!
      Nadia: All of you grown-ups are the same! Whenever we say something inconvenient, you say our behavior is unacceptable! That's not fair! WELL, I HATE THE WHOLE LOT OF YOU!!!
