Episode Summary

EDIT
Wolverine suddenly vanishes, as the Brotherhood members team up with the X-Men to defeat Magneto. They take off to fight him, leaving behind the new recruits. As soon as the ships take off, the institute goes into self-destruct mode. Before it can close off the doors, Amara gets out and is narrowly saved by Tabitha from the institute's weapons. They find Scott, who stayed behind because he felt too angry to stay with the team, and enter the mansion to help the others out. But as they reach the control room, the clock is counting down from 10 seconds...moreless

  • Gambit! Sentinels! Pyro! Collosus! The Mutants go public! The show is picking up steam!

    8.5
    X-Men Evolution finally takes things to the next level with the introduction of the Sentinels and Bolivar Trask. I liked how they divided up the heroes with different stories. The Brotherhood is even brought in to help stop Magneto from his next move. I didn't really like how Professor X was behaving in this episode- way out of character, but it's revealed to be Mystique so that's okay) But I did like Quicksilver's backstab, and Scarlet Witch's display of power. In fact, alot of the powers were used in cool and inventive ways.



    Meanwhile Cyclops nearly quits the team, but ends up rescuing the younger kids before the mansion blows up.

    But most importantly, GAMBIT has arrived!! Great cliffhangers! I remember thinking I can't wait to see where the show goes from here!moreless
  • The X-Men are divided... will they be also conquered?

    9.5
    The episode begins with Wolverine chasing Sabertooth in the sewers. He finally finds him, but he escapes with help from Magneto and Wolverine is captured by a scinetist named Trask and his men.

    Meanwhile, the other X-Men are training in the Danger Room, getting ready to fight Magneto. Xavier seems to be getting on their nerves, by not letting the even take a break.

    Xavier suggests that the X-Men should team up with the Brotherhood; this is the last straw for Cyclops, who decides to leave the team.

    The X-Men leave together with the Brotherhood on their mission to stop Magneto. They arrive at a construction site where they fight Magneto's acolytes.

    Meanwhile, in an underground laboratory, Trask unveils his latest invention, the Sentinel (a giant robotic mutant hunter) to Wolverine.

    Wolverine fights the Sentinel, but he seems to be no match for the robot.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (13)

    • When Lance shakes the house and makes the pizza fall on Blob, you can see he's not wearing his gloves. But when Mystique enters the room, Lance is wearing his gloves again.

    • Trivia: This is the another episode that shows Mystique's ability to turn into animals. Mystique turns into an owl.

    • In the Brotherhood's house, when Pietro and Blob are playing cards, Blob was bald. But afterwards, when he was fighting Collossus, his mohawk was back.

    • How did Storm and Beast know where to look for Wolverine?

    • If Wolverine was in the sewers, wouldn't he have seen or sensed any Morlocks or the Power8?

    • In the scene where the X-Jet is leaving the institute, Amara runs out after it wearing her X-Men uniform shouting "Wait!". Mystique (disguised as Xavier) already said that he/she wouldn't be using any of the New Mutants due to their lack of experience, so why did Amara think that she was going with them?

    • When the mansion went into lockdown and Cannonball charged at the steel doors, the metal buckled somewhat, so that suggests to me that the metal can eventually be breached, if enough force was applied to the metal. Also in "Retreat" we see Bobby freeze one of the hunter's guns and then just smash it like it was made from ice. Why couldn't he just do the same to the metal doors.

    • Since when does the X-Jet or the X-Copter have that many seats.

    • At the end when Acolytes and Magneto are walking away and then to a close up on Magneto, you can see the Sabertooth is cut and edited out of the shot very quickly in a choppy manner.

    • Magma said she hates the metric system, as if it's something new to her. But in "Cruise Control" she says she's from Brazil, and Brazil goes by metric.

    • The rigorous training session Xavier has the X-Men going through results in their being splattered with orange paint, clearing indicating their failure at their objective of getting Magneto in the simulation. When the Professor has Scott and the X-Men meet with him immediately afterward, all the paint on their uniforms is gone.

    • Magma's X on her shoulder pad and belt is always black, but at one time when she, Scott and Tabitha are walking in the mansion they are both red.

    • When Magma, Scott and Boom-Boom are getting attacked, Cyclops shoots a beam at the machine that's blue instead of red.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Spyke: Why are you guys volunteering for this anyway? You don't like us anymore than we like you.
      Quicksilver: We got our reasons.
      Toad: Yeah, maybe it's be kind to losers week.
      Avalanche: And from what I've seen it looks like you people can use a new team leader.
      Cyclops: Yeah, well guess what "Shakedown", you can have the job. I'm done with this

    • Kitty: Professor, are you serious? After what they did to us?
      Quicksilver: Hey, we won, you lost. Try to get over it!

    • Boom Boom: (Upon entering the mansion from the back) Wow, so what do you call this ... the X Cave?

    • Toad: Hit the Toad and win the prize. Miss, and get body slammed!

    • Magma: Meters! I meant meters! I hate the metric system.
