    This episode is about the warriors getting along again. After finding the Mind Reader Conch, each Warrior uses it to see what the other thinks about them, which only continues their problems. Jack introduces his latest invention, the Molar 2000, which he uses to break into the Temple vault, stealing most of their Shen-Gong-Wu. The Warriors team up with Jack's visiting cousin, Megan, to try and retrieve what's rightfully theirs. This was a very, very good episode because it was cleverly plotted. I mean Megan is not evil is just one of the great things about the family of Jack. Another thing that is also good about the family of Jack is that they are actually truthful by saying he is weird which is shown in another episode. This episode is very similar to royal rumble but with a better plot Though this episode is similar to royal rumble it's still better and it shows parts of jack's family (her cousin) Megan and Megan should join the monks cause she really knows how to beat up Jack and she even knows how to use the shen-gong-wu than jack does at all(this is proved when Megan uses the ju-ju fly trap to attack jack to keep his jack-bots helping her play skip rope, if you don't belive me about this ask wuya she,ll tell you all about it, this review is done by kguelman, yours truly he, that is all by now Megan is chubby, talented and bold! This is another epi where the main character is a strange Shen Gong Wu. The Mind Reader Conch lets you, instead of listening to sea waves, hear what people are thinking. This is really unpractical since people are thinking of many things at once and it will really confuse you. Megan is really amusing and ought to be a xiaolin warrior even though she does not know much martial arts. She could be protector of the Shen Gong Wu or something. This episode carefully narrates each warrior's thoughts and emotions upon hearing others' comments about him. This once again makes them quarrel and they forget that teamwork is the key to victory.

    This story was quite interesting. Brings me back to Royal Rumble where the Warriors were having trouble working together. This time, as Xiaolin Apprentices, not Dragon In Training anymore. They get together at last and finally found out that their teamwor The show starts out with the Warriors each busy doing their own business. Raimundo was hearing music, Kimiko was combing her hair, I forgot what Clay was doing. But, Omi was distracted because of a fly?? Anyway, when Master Fung ordered the Warriors to break the dummy, the Warriors quickly mess up the training. Soon, after that, the Mind Reader Conch revealed itself. The Warriors get to the island first only to be met by our favourite villain, Jack Spicer. Once again, their lack of teamwork almost made them lose another Shen Gong Wu. But, Dojo saved the day. Back at the temple, each Warriors used the Conch to hear what the other thinks only to worsen their situation as they insult each other. Later, next morning, their quarrel allowed Jack to steal all their Shen Gong Wu. They quickly travelled to Jack's lair only to meet his cousin, Megan. They found Jack but they can't seem to beat him as he has the Mind Reader COnch. Eventually Omi challenges Jack to a Xiaolin Showdown. Omi asks his teammates to insult Jack to distract him from reaching Omi's thoughts. Omi wins and the Warriors go home. During the next training, Kimiko messes up thanks to Clay. With the efforts of Raimundo and Omi, the fire she conjured was put out. Later, Master Fung gets angry with Omi when Omi said,"Master Fung does not know..." great episode and the mind reader conch is cool This episode was awesome a new shen-gong-wu- actives The Mind Reader Conch which allows you to read minds(but wasn't that obvious) they go find it and have to search on a island that has a bunch of conchs when they finally find it Jack comes and a battle begins at the end Dojo saves them. When they go to the temple they all each use the conch and are angry at each other. Then Jack goes to the temple to steal the mind reader conch and some other wu,but the monks are to busy arguing to go fight Spicer. Master Fung then tells the monks to thank each other for there flaws are something.. then they go to Spicer's lair to get the shen-gong-wu and it's a showdown bewteen Omi and Jack the showdown is whoever yells uncle frist loses and Omi wins. Similar to Royal Rumble, but still good. Hear Some Evil, See Some Evil was a good episode of Xiaolin Showdown.



    In this episode, theplot is similar to Royal Rumble with Kimiko and Clay, OMi and Raimundo disliking the respective pair to great intensity.



    The humor by jack was great and Megan was a great minor character.



    But, so far I have yet to see a showdown with anyone else but Omi and Raimundo so I am slightly disappointed with that.



    And the ending was not really what you would expect. Their friendship didn't immediately make their moves improve which is good because reality is not like that. The ending in ths episode is similar to "The Shard of Lightning" when Omi gets the closing iris gag. Mind Reader Conch! The Mind Reader Conch was cool!, I've always thought it was cool! It let's you read others mind. Which would give you a high advantage in showdowns!



    When Megan, Jacks little cousin comes. She causes an uproar. She's a smart little girl that knows ways out of everything.



    When the showdown occurs Omi acted like Spider-Man which was awesome but, this time in the showdown Jack had the Mind Reader Conch and he could read Omis and others minds. They threw insults and bad comments at Jack to psych him out and make him yell 'UNCLE'! Megan was so funny at the end when Jack was small and Megan wanted to play dolls. Xiaolin Showdown has done it again! This is a superb episode, well written by the writers and thought out well. The gang complain that they are incredibly bored, and start to get on each others nerves. Dojo finally senses not one, not two but FOUR Shen Gong Wu! The gang have to split up to gather the Shen Gong Wu, Wuya decides they need reinforcements to help so Jack Spicer and co. head out to stop the gang and get the Shen Gong Wu no matter what.



    If you have not seen many episodes before then this one will help you understand the series in general and get you hooked. Which is a good thing!

    It wasn't my favorite episode but it was cool anyway! I liked Megan! Hope she comes back later! She can whoop butt with the Ju-Ju Flytrap and Jack's Rolling Shield The Mind Reader Conch looks really cool with its tan color and black markings! I've always wanted to hear what others were thinking! I wish I had it!



    The Showdown was sort of unfair to me because I don't think Omi would evercry uncle. Its unlike him him to say that! I love Megan she is the frist to use the ju ju flytrap In this episode a new wu is showen the Mind Reader Conch can read anyone mind and they used the slik spinner and Megan used the ju ju flytrap and she is smart on using it on jack and the showdown is good they all make funny of him in thier mind and made he now play attentionmoreless

    • In this episode, Omi and Jack says "Gon Yi Tanpai" in a Xiaolin Showdown, before the enviroment changes. Usually in other episodes the characters are suppose to say "Gon Yi Tanpai" after the enviroment changes.

    • Kimiko and Raimundo changed positions when they were practicing.
