Xiaolin Showdown

Season 3 Episode 13

Time After Time (2)

Aired Saturday 9:00 AM May 13, 2006 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Ever since the Moby Morpher was found, Hannibal Roy Bean was the only person to ever use it.

    • Omi never says "Orb of Tornami, Water" after episode "In the Flesh".

    • The first and last showdown of the series was over 'The Eye of Dashi'.

    • Wouldn't the destroyed Sands of Time undo every change someone did by using it or destroy the universe?

    • This episode was made in a way that it could be a season finale or a series finale.

    • Wuya before being trapped into the Puzzle Box, Wuya didn't seem to be full powered as she was in Day Past or Citadel of doom, as she did use only martial arts while fighting Chase, Guan and Dashi.

    • When Dojo first told the story of Hannibal Bean, Chase had the outfit he has in the present. But now he was wearing different clothes.

    • Chase was a lot weaker without the Lou Mang Lone Soup.

    • Good Jack's outfit here was a gardener suit, but in Saving Omi he was in a sweater suit.

    • In Days Past and in Journey of a Thousand Miles it is said Dashi defeated Wuya alone. However in this episode Wuya is beaten by Dashi, Chase and Guan.(Dashi, Chase and Guan defeated Wuya's army together. It's possible that they were referring to how Dashi was the only one who faced Wuya herself).

    • In Journey of a Thousand Miles the ancient scroll shows Dashi attacking Wuya on 1 cliff and Wuya on another. However Guan, Chase and Dashi are clearly fighting at the temple.

    • This is a third different way in which Wuya is sealed in the puzzle box. In every episode where that happens it happens differently.

    • In the previous episode, Dojo told Omi to travel to the future to get the sands of time,and that gave Omi the idea to freeze himself.However,in the next episode during the'previously on Xiaolin Showdown', Dojo says to Omi to "Do what he did when he got stuck in the past.

    • In Days Past, Omi had travelled to the time when Dashi sealed Wuya, but in this episode, Dashi looked at Omi like he recognised him. So in Days Past, Dashi had not yet sealed Wuya.

    • In Journey of A Thousand Miles it is revealed that Dashi used his Shen-Gong- Wu to defeat Wuya however in this episode he doesn't use one.

    • When good Chase and the others were captured by Hannibal and his minions, why didn't Omi just use the Shen Gong Wu, they had the Cannon Blaster to shoot them out And they had the Kasuzu Atom as well, instead of busting free through Chase drinking the Lou Mane Lone soup.

    • This is the first time since Saving Omi that we see Wuya in her ghost form.

    • In the first episode The Journey of a Thousand Miles, the ancient scrolls said Dashi defeated Wuya with Shen-Gong-Wu. But during the fight, Dashi used no Shen-Gong-Wu at all.

    • How can the Good Chase Young still drink the soup if it has been around for 1500 years? Soup that old should be stale or evaporated. (Reply: The Lao Mang Lone Soup contains mystic properties and can probably last for a very long time.)

    • Since drinking the Loa Ming Lone soup turned Chase into a lizard and Guan into an insect, it seems it has different forms for each person who drinks it.

    • Omi's plan should have backfired. If he had really seen himself in the alternate timeline he would have caused a time paradox and destroyed the universe.

    • Omi used the Sands of Time to return to present, but Clay had already been made leader, which meant Omi had overshoot his destination somehow. If it really was the present, a leader wouldn't yet have been picked.

      Edit: In the Alternate Present, Master Fung was never rescued from the Ying-Yang World, so he was not there for his announcement of leader choosing. It is obvious Clay either appointed himself or else was voted on by the other monks.

    • After the Sands of Time was destroyed, Dojo said there was no way back. They seemed to forget that there is another Sands of Time hidden in Egypt.(Note: in the Episode it was a second false wu not the Sands of Time and it would no longer be around then.)

    • How could Chase still be alive in the future? The dragon soup is supposed to make its drinker immortal which is why Master Monk Guan was still alive. So shouldn't Chase have died years ago. Also if Chase was alive, logically, Dashi should be alive. Also how come young Chase looked exactly the same after fifteen hundred years? (Reply: Chase probably did what Master Monk Guan did to stay alive that long when he was good, and if Dashi isn't alive, it's probably because he's about 5 or 6 years older than Chase Young and Master Monk Guan. Also during the earlier part of the episode Chase refered to his soul as being immortal which would explain why he hasn't aged despite 1500 years passing).

  • Quotes

    • Jack: Hold me!
      Good Jack: No, hold ME!

    • Dashi: Dojo, you look different. Kinda... chunky.
      Dojo: Hey! That's muscle!

    • (Dojo is distracting Good Chase)
      Dojo: Go ahead. Pick any card! ... It's the Queen of Hearts!
      Good Chase: Seven of Spades.
      Dojo: How did that happen?

    • Master Fung: I hope you have learned well from your quest.
      Raimundo: I'm not quite sure what happened, but I know I'll never forget it.
      Omi: Did whatever happened really happen?
      Jack: AAAAAAHHH! I wanna go home! AAAAAAHHH!!

    • Good Chase: You expect me to trade my eternal soul for pea soup?!
      Hannibal Bean: No! This is a trick!
      Good Chase: Here's another one. I call it "the vanishing bean"!
      (Drops Hannibal into a pot and kicks it)

    • (Reptillian Chase, Wuya, Guan, and Hannibal have ganged up on Kimiko)
      Kimiko: Hey, no fair! Only one player at a time!
      Hannibal: So? We're cheaters!

    • Omi: I cannot believe that evil trickery of Hannibal Roy Bean!
      Dojo: Kid, when you've been around as long as me, nothing surprises you. Well ... the platypus. What's that about?!

    • Hannibal Bean: I must thank you for delivering Chase Young to the dark side. You did what I failed to do years ago!
      Raimundo: No! I didn't come this far to lose! We will find a way to win. It's our destiny!

    • (Final lines of the series)
      Master Fung: Now that you have risen to Shoku Warrior, your job has only begun. The survival of the world depends on you.
      Dojo: Not too much pressure there.

    • Good Chase: This may not be the future I would choose, but it is the future that must be ... for the greater good.
      Good Jack: (crying) That is so beautiful! I haven't cried like this in ... hours!

    • (After being promoted to Shoku Warrior)
      Raimundo: I (pause) I don't know what to say. Except I never thought it would be me. (Kimiko and Clay give him a look) Well, maybe a little.

  • Notes

    • This is the second time there was a Xiaolin Showdown over the Eye of Dashi. The first time was in the first episode, The Journey of a Thousand Miles. Also, Omi was involved in both of these showdowns.

    • This is the fourth time a Xiaolin Showdown happens at the Xiaolin Temple. The first time was in The Deep Freeze. The second time was in The Year Of The Green Monkey. The third time was in Omi Town. Also, this Xiaolin Showdown did not happen at the Bamboo Grove. It happened in the Heylin Seed's Vault.

    • This episode marks the first time that Omi gives Raimundo a sign of respect as a monk with a higher rank than him.

    • In the alternate universe, the group works on a farm, and Chase is a good guy.

    • Omi probably didn't get promoted to leader since he is prone to evil influences (As revealed in Wu Got the Power?) and makes decisions without thinking it through (Revealed in Time After Time Part 1) Not to mention a very high egotist. Kimiko probably didn't get promoted to leader because she mentions she didn't do a very good job of being leader. And Clay probably didn't get promoted because whilst leader in the Evil Guan universe, he did nothing to combat evil when Omi and Raimundo were saying they should. Raimundo probably got promoted because, even though he turned evil, he redeemed himself, after knowing it wasn't right. As well as him becoming more responsible as the series went and because he's starting to get better at planning things out before acting. But most importantly, it could be because, out of all the monks, he's the last one to admit defeat, even when things are at their grimiest. All of this would no doubt serve him well as leader.

    • In both this episode and Citadel of Doom, Wuya changes back into her spirit form before she gets locked into the puzzle box. But in The Journey of a Thousand Miles in the ancient scroll, she doesn't change until she's sucked in by Dashi.

    • At the end when the monks rush out to see whats going on, Raimundos bandages on his hand are gone, but when it switches back to them after showing the lineup of villans, Raimundo is seen taking the bandages off.

    • Unlike Chase Young and Master Monk Guan, Dashi didn't shout the names of his attacks as he did them.

    • When Chase Young said that Raimundo must "lead the others and find the frozen Omi", he hinted that Raimundo was to be the Leader.

    • The reason why Chase wanted Omi on his side in Season 2, even after the time space continuum, is because he felt that he already knew Omi, which, in the future, makes him a powerful ally.

    • This episode's Xiaolin Showdown features all the main villians of the series (besides Master Monk Guan), except perhaps the most main villian of the entire series, Jack Spicer.

    • Proving the ability to be leader during the Xiaolin Showdown, by telling the Monks who goes in, and when he tags in for Kimiko to protect her and fighting Master Monk Guan and Wuya, Hannibal Bean, and Chase. At the end how he acted like a Xiaolin Warrior, and how he has grown since the beginning, may have been the reasons why he was chosen as the leader.

    • This episode marks the first time that Omi has willingly admitted that someone is better than him. It also marks the first time Jack changes clothes after going into the ying-yang world. But it marks the second time there is a change of clothes from two evil people, after coming from the ying-yang world.

    • Unlike the first time Jack went into the Ying-Yang world this time his good clothes are different then the ones he wears when he is evil.

    • The good Jack wears a yellow garding outfit with a green bow and matching hat and has long red hair. The bad Jack wears a long black coat, his stange glasses and has short spiky red hair.

    • This episode marks the second time that Kimiko kisses Raimundo.

    • After Master Fung says his speech about evil the world on Raimundo's shoulder his eyes turn from green to blue.

    • Unlike Chase's jungle cat army, which is made up mostly of tigers, Evil Guan's appeared to consist mainly of panthers.

    • First aired in Canada on YTV on May 21st, 2006. It was supposed to air the day before, but was postponed due to a Superhero Week Special.

    • As there seemed to be no tension or reluctance to work together between Hannibal and Evil Guan, it's possible that, unlike Chase, Guan didn't trap Bean in the Ying-Yang World.

    • Ironically, Omi was the only monk to not be leader at some time. Kimiko believed she was in the Omi-less Future, Clay was in the Evil Guan Present and Rai was in the original Present.

    • When Omi changes Chase's path, he takes Master Monk Guan's path of life and He takes Chase's path of life.

    • Just like Chase Young, Master Monk Guan has a creature form. He becomes a giant scorpion.

    • It is revealed that no matter what is done to prevent it, Chase Young always ends up evil.

    • Raimundo's new Shoku warrior wardrobe features black robes with a dragon design down the left arm, a white undershirt, red pants, and a yellow sash.

    • All three warriors, Master Monk Guan, Chase Young,and Grand Master Dashi worked together to take down Wuya.

    • Marks the first time Raimundo gets a higher rank faster than the other monks.

    • Evil Master Monk Guan has a scarred eye in his human form.

    • It is revealed that the Moonstone Locust can not only devour the Heylin Seed, but can devour other plants as well.

    • Marks the 3rd use of the Ju-Ju Flytrap & the 2nd time of the Moonstone Locust in a Xiaolin Showdown.

    • The alternate version of present day Wuya still has her powers, which she uses to bring stone gargoyles to life with during the Xiaolin Showdown.

    • As of this episode, through some way, all the monks, except Omi have been made leader.

    • This marks the first time the Ju-Ju Flytrap was used by a male.

    • Raimundo has been upgraded to Shoku Warrior.

    • No new Shen-Gong-Wu were revealed in this episode.

    • When Omi turned Chase good and returned to the future, Clay was chosen as the leader.

  • Allusions

    • The way Omi traveled down the castle with his Orb of Tornami is similar to the way the Marvel superhero Iceman travels.

    • The winged monkeys Wuya summons in the Xiaolin Showdown are very similar the ones in The Wizard of Oz.

    • Dojo: It seems our work here is done, Tonto.
      On the 1949 television series The Lone Ranger, Tonto was the Ranger's faithful Indian companion.
