Episode Summary

EDIT
Karl Ziktor is planning to demolish the Old Growth Forest, and thanks to the weak-willed Mayor of Cross World City, he's got the permits to do it! Little does anyone suspect that his alter ego, Grimlord, wants the forest removed simply to clear an area where the reality barrier is weakest, allowing his virtual troops to march through. The Old Growth Forest happens to have been a favorite of Ryan's missing father, so the Troopers take a special interest in trying to get it saved, leading to VR Ryan facing the deforestationing Chain-bot, VR Kaitlin a load of Skugs, and VR JB an especially angry General Ivar! Will what's currently eating Jeb somehow be able to save the trees?moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • The press release summary mentions a scene either cut from the final episode, or just not filmed, where the Troopers try to get Mayor Rooney to stop the deforestation, but Ziktor somehow convinces Mrs Rooney the forest is full of savage animals and she pushes her husband to destroy it because of that. Also, it's claimed Ziktor is forced to build a park, the Mayor congradulates the teens for getting the federal injuction, and Jeb infects Mrs Rooney with fleas (in the finised version, it's Percy who gets infected).

      • Ryan plans to give Jeb a flea bath to rid him of the Blue Fleas, yet it was made clear that they're rare and an endangered species. As such, he'd be killing a federally protected insect!

      • VR JB & Kaitlin aim their Laser Pistols at Ivar, but there is no laser discharge shown, it merely cuts to Ivar sparkling with electricity, and exploding. Even odder, is he rapidly appears in different areas before blowing up.

      • When VR Kaitlin flips toward General Ivar, she ends up falling and rolling down a hill in the quarry, yet she was hit by nothing and hit nothing in the jump!

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (4)

      • First full exterior appearance of the Air Castle, base of General Ivar. Also the first time it's seen on land (or rather, rising out of water).

      • VR Ryan gains the ability of an image multiplier, allowing him to create holographic doubles of himself in battle.

      • In airing order, this marks the first time the Trooper Teens come face to face with Karl Ziktor (in production, it was "The Dojo Plot"), but overall, it's the first time they've been to the Ziktor Industries building at all.

      • This marks the first time General Ivar fights a Trooper in physical combat (this being VR JB), without using his tank.
