Did You Know?


The original idea for the episode was to be an hour-long season finale in which Sun Park was set to die. However, due to the darkness of the scene, Disney axed the scene. Executive producers Eddie Guzelian and Matthew Negrete were told if they wanted it to be a two-parter, if would have to be humorous and have nothing to do with their original idea for the story line. The result of this was the episode being shortened to a 22 minute episode, while still keeping the plot of Rose being blackmailed by the Huntsclan. See more »


The 13th Aztec skull has yellow eyes throughout the battle to obtain it. But when Grandpa, Fu, and Jake line up the three skulls they have (including the recently-obtained 13th), none of them have yellow eyes. See more »

Devastating. It looks like the end, because it's the beginning of the end.

Throughout the run of "American Dragon: Jake Long" I often wondered just how many seasons Jeff Goode, and the rest of his staff wanted for it, and if you had asked me back then, I would be surprised that it would be more than two. Looking at this episode, it's far too obvious that two seasons will be the limit.

The Huntsmaster is about to steal the last of the 13 Aztec Skulls, that can grant wishes when they're all put together. Needless to say he's going to use them to eliminate all magical creatures, including dragons, so Jake has to stop him and the rest of the Huntsclan. But the Huntsmaster suspects he has a mole working against them, and he finds out that it's Rose. Additionally, it just so happens that both were nominated Millard Fillmore Middle School's Homecoming King & Queen. Jake is psyched-up for this, but Rose is scared, because she knows the Huntsclan will punish her. Fortunatley, Jake offers to take her away from the Huntsclan and help her find her parents. Unfortunately, the Huntsclan blackmails her by forcing her to steal the skulls from Grandpa's special hiding place with the promise of keeping her family alive long enough to reunite with them. Not only is the question of whether the magical world will survive this latest ordeal, but of whether Rose chooses the boy she loves, the cult that raised her, or something else. On the lighter side, there's a mishap at school that leads to the possibility of Spud and Trixie becoming more than friends.

I said in my review of the episode "Half-Baked" that Jake loves Rose, and it's not just as eye candy. For those of us who are way past the show's target demographic, it's hard not to think of Sting's first solo hit "If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free." I also must concur with my fellow IMDb user "americandragonfreak" that this episode may be inappropriate for younger viewers. Jake's rage after saving his beloved is the kind of thing I was talking about when I was referring to what I expected in "The Hunted." Frankly, I don't think it deserved the TV-G Rating it received. But this couldn't possibly change the fact that it's one of the better episodes at least.
