    After helping the Warriors acquire a new Shen-Gong-Wu, a Russian vendor named Vlad joins the Xiaolin Dragons-in-training. When Omi uses the new Shen-Gong-Wu, Crystal Glasses, he sees that he becomes evil in the future. Upon seeing this, he quickly leaves the Xiaolin Temple, deciding that he can no longer continue to be a Xiaolin Dragon-in-training but what he didn't know was that Vlad is working with Jack spicer and that Vlad put the reversing mirror in front of the crystal glasses when Omi was using them just to trick Omi. My favorite part of this episode is when at the end Omi realizes that he was tricked by Vlad.moreless
  • This is what I call a good episode! Omi turning evil, hahaha!

    Usually only 1 episode in each season gets 9 and above for a rating, and this is one of that. Crystal Glasses is cool, funky, awesome, creative and totally the best episode this season, up to now that is. Vlad puts on a good show to pretend that Omi, the best, most virtuous warrior in the temple, is bad, and being exceptionally virtuous, Omi runs away and the whole place is in chaos. I don't really think Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay are so weak that they can't survive without Omi though. In the end, Omi realises he is fooled and comes back to help his friends.moreless
  • Obviously Vlad choose bron over brains.

    The Crystal Glasses go active, and the monks go to Russia to get it. Jack almost gets away with it, until a vendor named Vlad stops him. Vlad agrees to go back to the temple with the monks. Everyone wants to try the Crystal Glasses, but Master Fung says no. Then Omi is looking at them, and Vlad tells him to try them on. He does and sees himself destroying the temple. Then Dojo discovers Jack's Reversing Mirror in Vlad's backpack. Vlad sees him and conks him on the head and throws him in the woodbox. Omi runs away, thinking that he will become evil. Rai finds Dojo in the woodbox, and Dojo explains that Vlad is working for Jack. Then they find out that Omi's missing. They go and find him. Then a treasure trove of Wu goes active. Omi gets into a showdown with Vlad for it, and Vlad tells him that what Omi saw was a trick of the Reversing Mirror. Omi beats him, and the day is saved.moreless
  • Omi's episode. I was kind of surprised when he saw that his future was to become evil. I taught he was going to become the best and wisest monk there ever was. But, the story is quite good.moreless

    The show starts off with the Warriors trying to meditate, but is irritated by the noise f Dojo scratching his back. He explains that the time has come for a lot of Shen Gong Wu will reveal itself all at once. The Crystal Glasses was the fist to reveal itself. The Warriors wishing to bag the Wu, quickly flew there only to know that Dojo has blisters on his rash. They quickly bought a remedy from a man in the place. Dojo was temporarily comforted by the remedy. But, as the Warriors approached the Crystal Glasses, Jack Spicer comes again. Jack almost bags the Wu but just when he was about to walk away, his robot crashed causing him to lose his balance and fell down into Clad's cart. Vlad quickly beat up Jack and returned the Crystal Glasses to the Warriors. All of this was a setup by Jack to steal the Warriors Shen Gong Wu. When Vlad finally joined the Temple, he tricked Omi into believing he was evil by using the Reversing Mirror. Omi leaves the temple and was found once again(thanks to Raimundo with his agile thinking of using the Crystal Glasses)just before the Shen Gong Wu rash that Dojo had begin to blister. All the Shen Gong Wu has revealed themself. The Warriors arrived there only to have Omi daydreaming about the days of him becoming evil. He soon learns that he was tricked and challenges Vlad to a showdown. Omi wins and eventually returns to the Xiaolin side. Good job!!!moreless

    9.1
    Not a bad episode it started with the monks going to russia to find a new shen-gong-wu The Crystal Glasses. While there they run into Vald and he shows them where the shen-gong-wu might be. After a fight with jack spicer(who Vlad beat)the monks go back to the temple and bring Vald with them but they don't know he is really working with Jack Spicer. After a while Omi goes to the shen-gong-wu vault to get the Crystal glasses to see the future and sees his friends defeated and the temple destoryed and is wondering who did this and sees himself who caused it and conclues that he has a evil side of him. He tells his friends about what he say but they kinda don't belive him and after hearing Vlad saying he should leave and never come back Omi listens and leaves. After the other monks figure out he is gone they use the Crystal Glasses to find Omi. Meanwhile Dojo trys to find some onmient that Vlad has and figures out he works for Jack but gets knocked out.
