    The Xiaolin Warriors are back in Texas to look for the Sphere of Yun. They end up meeting The Black Vipers and to everyone's surprise (even Clay's), Jesse Bailey is the leader of the all-girls motorcycle gang. We also learn about how Jesse was jealous of her brother (honestly, who wouldn't admire him?) and this brings to light one of Omi's stupidest moments in the series. When Jesse was talking about when it came time for one of the siblings to go to the temple, Omi asked "who?". Later, Jesse's slyness tricks the warriors into finding the shen gong wu for her. In the showdown, she does the most dishonorable thing. When Clay saves her life, she pushes him off the motorcycle, thus winning the showdown. She later regrets it and returns every wu except the Wings of Tinabi (which is never returned).moreless

    The Warriors travel to Texas once again looking for a new Shen-Gong-Wu but run into some trouble as soon as they get there. The Black Vipers, an all-girl motorcycle gang, capture the Warriors and keep them prisoner in a cave. Clay learns that one of the bikers is his sister, and that she's been holding a grudge against him their whole life. Can the Warriors escape unharmed? Yes is the answer. My favorite part of this episode was when we see the xiaolin showdown and Clay saves his sister in the showdown but suddenly she tricks him and the xiaolin dragons lose. At the end of the episode Clay's little sister returns the Wu that she stole except one which is okay with the xiaolin dragons.moreless

  • We meet another of Clay's hilarious relatives.

    Truth be told, I suppose Clay episodes are peaking up since Like A Rock! This episode reveals another bit of Clay's family background. Jessie is really chubby and Clay realy cares for her very much. This shows the essence of sibling rivalry with a twist. Clay is the sibling being targeted at! We learn how the other party feels when he is the cause of your jealousy. I like this episode because it's been the best in a long time. I hope more such touching episodes appear soon to add life and soul to the characters and stories. Well done for this one!moreless
  • We met Jessie, Clay's younger Sister.

    The Xiaolin monks return to Texas to obtain another Sheng-Gon-Wu, the Sphere Of Yun, but they end up running into trouble, this time its not Jack Spicer, its Clay's sister Jessie, who uses those texas sayings just as much as Clay does.



    Jessie is the leader of the all girl biker groug known as the Black Vipers, and though out the episode her and her groupies outsmart and outwit Clay and the rest of the gang.



    When Jack shows up he actually gets the best of the vipers, and becomes their queen, er king.



    The tables turn later on in the episode wgen Clay has to fight his sister in a showdown, and almost wins, if clay hadn't saved her he would have.



    Great Clay episode, saw a bit of sibling rivary, with Clay and his sister, Jessie is jealous of Clay because her always got everything, I like that she finally say the error of her ways at the end and returned the Shen-Gon-Wu.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (13)

    • When Jack arrives in Texas, his helmet has the presumably self-handwritten words "Boy Genious", which shows that Jack is anything but!

    • When Kimiko is yelling: "Will you two please stop abusing the english language!" Raimundo's eyes are blue.

    • When you see Omi inside the keyhole in the cell that they are locked up in, Clay and Raimundo are in their Xiaolin robes.

    • When the Black Viper ride around the warriors on their bikes they are riding to our right. However, later on 1 of them is riding to the left.

    • When Raimundo is being held by the Jack bots and says "sarcasam" his t-shirt's yellow sleaves are missing.

    • After escaping from their prison at the the Black Vipers', Dojo said he sense the Sphere of Yun and took out the scroll of the Shen-Gong-Wu out of thin air.

    • If Jack had the Glove of Jisaku how come he didn't just use it to take his and the other stolen Shen-Gong-Wu back from the Black Vipers by simply using its power and helipacking away?

    • The Bullhorn Blazer was shown in the cactus along with the warrior's other shen gong wu, yet it was never and still hasn't been featured in the show- it's only in the card game. It could be a little easter egg for fanatics or a subliminal message.

    • How did Jesse know about the Shen-Gong-Wu? Clay never told her about them, and she didn't have a cheat sheet which was how Pandabubba found out. And she mentioned them before she met Jack.

    • The warriors did not seem so powerful in this episode. They just let Jesse and her gang to push the warriors around. Coulnd't they have used their elements to break free from the ropes?(Reply:Since one of the Black Vipers is Clays sister, Clay probably wanted the warriors to go easy on them.)

    • There were only two girls seen cheering for Jesse to win during the showdown. However, the Black Vipers consist of four girls. Where was the fourth one?

    • Jack had the Glove of Jisaku last. How did Raimundo have it?

    • The address on the package Clay receives only says, "Clay, Xiaolin Temple, China" and doesn't give a last name, city, or specific address.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Clay: I uh,I'm sorry Rai, couldn't help it, and smell my favorite meal and all.
      Kimiko: Every meal is your favorite meal Clay.
      Raimundo: I can't belive your first loyality is to a pork chop

    • Jack: I can't believe it!!We won!
      Wuya: Yes! For once you have done something right!

    • Black Viper: (after being defeated by Jack Spicer) And because you have defeated us, you are know the leader....of the Black Vipers! (they all bow down to Jack)
      Jack: Cool! I guess that makes me Queen! (everyone stares at him) Oh, I mean King!

    • Jesse: (to Kimiko talking about Jack) Man, I can't believe how girly this guy is!
      Kimiko: I know! Can you believe he wears eye-liner!

    • Jack: This is the last time I come to Texas! (flies off)
      Black Viper: Yeah, don't mess with Texas!

    • Jack: You got a name?
      Jesse: Is a cow pen full of sod?
      Jack: I like that. Though disrespectful, it smacks of a deep-seated inner evil.

      Kimiko: Will you two please stop abusing the English language!?

    • Clay: Nope. I'm sorry, but I can't hit a girl.
      Raimundo: She doesn't even look like a girl! She looks like you! But, with lipstick.

    • Jesse: Well, it looks like our uninvited guests have decided on an extended stay in the hospitality suite.
      Omi: Uh, why, thank you! That sounds most inviting! Where do we go?
      Raimundo: Omi, we're already in the hospitality suite.
      Omi: Oh, I see. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the meaning of hospitality.
      Kimiko: Or the meaning of sarcasm!

  • NOTES (12)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Kimiko and the three stooges get sent underground by Jessie, several things are seen as it pans down below the earth's surface - first we see a group of Morlocks from H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, then there is a lizard creature which is a Sleestak from the 1970's show, Land of the Lost and finally a guy saying "Can you still hear me?" which is a parody of the Verizon wireless "Can you hear me now?" commercials.
