The show's best character finally gets a spotlight moment
After 4 sub-par chapters, the Deva arc finally delivers with this quality episode, also notable for furthering Impmon's story, which has so far only amounted to him hopping around being mischievous. Not to mention, it avoids the plague of intrusive subplots by making the conflict with the Devas relevant to his issues. We begin to see that all of his past behavior is really just an attempt to hide his insecurities about his power level (though I found the scene where he shot at a bunch of young girls to be uncomfortable). The scene where he challenges Indramon reveals the extent of this. Watching him fight so futilely, all the while continuing to spout smart-alecky remarks, you can't help but pity the guy. This defeat will set in motion a character arc for him that, unlike Rika's, won't be stingy with detail and significant experiences.
Aside from this, we are also formally introduced to Henry's sensei, who provides some interesting information concerning the Devas in mythology. This works because it goes along with one of the more successful aspects of this season's story: the origins of the Digimon themselves. Indramon is pretty cool, probably the most intimidating Deva since Mihiramon, especially given how he so easily knocks out the 3 champion level digimon.
