  • June must fight her friends that have been posessed by Viking sprits.

    In this episode, Juniper must fight her friends and get them back to normal.

    It starts off as June and her friends sing at a reteriment home. Roger then accidently comes across a cursed viking medallion that ends up posessing the eniter chours. The now possesed kids take off to find the other half of the medallion to make this change complete. June manages to chase them to an outlet mall on an island in the middle of the bay. There the vikings are searching for the medalion. the climax is a fight between June and the posessed Jody for the medallion.

    This had enough action, but the plot line wasn't one of my favorites. It seem more like a filler episode then anything else. Like it was just some idea someone through out there and they went with it. It was good, but just not one of my favorites.moreless
  • June goes Medieval

    As much as June tries to hide her activities as the Te Xuan Ze from her friends, those duties seem to find them on occassion.

    Here's the premise of this episode - June and her classmates (including Jodie, Roger, and Ophelia), are singing chorus for a retirement home, when Roger finds a broken medallion - being the poor judge of character he is, he decides to wear it, and before the first song is played, a curse causes evil Viking spirits to possess June's friends! (Their leader, naturally, chooses Jodie.) Now June has to find the other half of the medallion before they do, or her friends' bodies will be stolen forever! In the meantime, the Vikings use the kids' bodies to good use, tearing the town apart.

    Of course, it isn't easy trying to fight your friends; the climax of the story is a fight between June and the possessed Jodie. You kind of expect it to end with June trying to get through to her and Jodie resisting. You'd be wrong - the episode doesn't do that, and June has to break the curse completely to save everyone.

    There are a lot of laughs, as usual. We find out that Monroe watches soaps, and we get a look at the stranger side of Orchid Bay. (Apparently, someone decided to build an outlet mall in the middle of the bay.) The Vikings interacting with the citizens (some are scared of them, some are indifferent), are pretty funny.

    I give "It Takes a Pillage" 8 out of 10.moreless

  • NOTES (6)

    • When the episode was redubbed for Brazilian viewers, the "Bingo Tuesdays" sign was mistranslated as "Bingo às Quintas" (Bingo Thursdays). The correct translation would be "Bingo às Terças".

    • The worker of the Viking Casino was throwed to June's ship, and leaves the boat with the tourists. But at the end of the episode, he's back in the viking ship, and the tourist are in the water. Why was he saved and not the tourists?

    • At the end of the chapter, when June falls and Juniper saves her, June have not a shoe, but when she runs to the mall, she have both.

    • Credits: The tourists are still on water waiting for another ride back to the surface. Ray Ray and Monroe are steering the boat back home.

    • The song the chorus starts to sing (before they are possessed) is "Aba Daba Honeymoon," which was first written in 1914, and made an appearance in the 1930 musical The King of Jazz, released by Universal. Twenty years later, the song was a novelty hit as it was sung by Debbie Reynolds and Carlton Carpenter in the movie Two Weeks in Love.

    • Main Villain(s): Viikings of Kragnarok Ghosts.
