No, but there's a good mystery up to the climax. Actually, a really good mystery. Even though every clue directly points to Ivy, she almost convinces the audience that she's changed. In fact, if I didn't know that Ivy would be a villain after this episode because the show's 22 years old, I would've believed her. I thought maybe it was the scientist that she was working with when she got her powers. I know he wasn't in the series at all, or even mentioned, but I think it would've been a good twist. Thankfully, the twist they do have is just as good if not better. Once the other scientist isn't mentioned before the episode's climax, I thought we'd have a Man-Bat situation, where Ivy's husband kept being transformed into the cactus creature. However, it turns out that Ivy's family are all genetic plant clones, not really far-fetched considering that this is a series where a woman has control over plants. The mystery is great, the twist is surprising, the action's cool, and it's all in one awesome episode.
