  • A death of a loved one.

    This episode was a bit boring at first. Seemed like any other episode. Zack getting an assignment on time. Belding making a deal with Zack. Beating Valley. Had all of the usual formulas of every episode. But then it turned out to be something way more than that surprisingly, counting on the fact how bring it was. Zack's homework helper dies & Zack can't run which sucks for his team, but then he gets a message from the dead. Did they beat Valley? The world may never know. Seemed a bit long as well. Jessie's ancestor's being slave traders, that's a bit unusual plot to go along with. An okay episode.

    Zack's ancestors are Native Americans, and Zack will find out the sort of hard way, and something hits him in the end. This episode was very sad, and it teaches you a lesson about loss. This episode also has some things that can leave you laughing, but mostly it's a sad episode that you might want to avoid if you dislike these types of episodes from the series.

    Zack is forced by his teacher to meet a friend of hers to tell Zack about his ancestors. After he discovers that that man dies after helping him through a lot of things, he decides not to run a race that he was supposed to run. Oops, didn't mention that. What ever. Anyways, he feels depressed but he then finds something that makes him happy...

    I recommend this episode, it was very excellent.
