  • A better look at beast.

    8.0
    I wasn't a huge fan of Beast of Bayville, but Retreat is a better examination of Hank McCoy. Here, he takes some of his students on a retreat out in the woods while he tries to accept his true nature. You can take or leave the conflict of having some hunters mistake him for big foot, but I think for what this episode is, it works. Kitty shines in a fun yet sensitive supporting role. There's also a sympathetic scientist who I enjoyed. Also, Wolfsbane and Sunspot get more to do. The show continues to do a good job with creatively using the X-Men's powers.moreless
  • The real McCoy

    7.8
    Hank feels like his animal instincts are starting to control him, so Xavier suggests he should take some of the other students on a trip to the rainforest, where no one can see him.

    Once there, a group of hunters and scientists see him and they think he's some sort of an ape-man. They manage to capture him, but with help from one of the scientists, who discovers Beast isn't "a dumb animal", he escapes.

    Afterwards, the other X-Men scare the hunters and they all return home.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Roberto: The first five samples will be like cake, and the others will be like icing, and I love icing!
      Rahne: I thought you put on some weight.
      (Roberto turns around, pulls up his shirt and rubs his stomach.)

    • Beast: You're coming too, Bobby.
      Bobby: But my grades are improving!
      Beast: Yeah, with the speed of a glacier.

    • Hunter 1: Where can I get one of those?
      Hunter 2: Go to the Bigfoot shop on 5th. Ask for Mulder. (X-Files music plays in the background)

    • Beast: I'm taking a few people who's grades are slipping on a camping trip. That means you too, Evan.
      Evan: Aw man, can't we just go to the park? There's green stuff there.
      Evan: (after some coaxing) Does this forst have any sidewalks?

    • Beast: As a young girl once told me, we are who we are for a reason

  • NOTES (5)

    • This episode along with "Shadow Dance," "HeX Factor," and "Day Of Reckoning Part 1 & 2" are available on the DVD X-Men Evolution: Mystique's Revenge.

    • This is the only episode in which we see Wolfsbane transform into her transitional (wolf/human hybrid) form. In all the other episodes, she's only changed into a normal, four-footed wolf.

    • This is the first episode in which Roberto (Sunspot) has dialogue.

    • This episode also aired with the title, "The Real McCoy."

    • This is the first (and only) episode where Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane) has dialogue. Kitty pronounces her name as "Ronnie", while in "Mainstream" Logan will pronounce it "Rain". She seems to be interested in Roberto (Sunspot), but due to the lack of focus on these characters, we won't see this combination again.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Hunter 2: The Bigfoot Trading Post on Route 5. [Whispers] Ask for Mulder.
      Fox Mulder is a character from the TV show The X-Files with an interest in paranormal activities.
