Storyline

Thanks to Kentaurosmon's nick-of-time intervention, the DATS team arrive back in the human world. But saving the team came at a high price and Kentaurosmon has suffered serious injuries. The injuries cause him to digivolve back to his usual form. The team is shocked to discover that he is none other than Captain Sampson's Kudamon. Marcus spends time with his mom and sister, trying to make sense of what has happened to his father. How has father become King Drasil and why doesn't he recognize Marcus anymore? Reassured by his family, he realizes he is still his father's son and that he cannot turn his back on him. Gallantmon soon arrives and launches his own attack on the human world. His strength makes short work of MirageGaogamon, Rosemon, Ravemon, RookChessmon, and BishopChessmon. Even armed with the Geo Grey Sword, ShineGreymon proves no match for the Royal Knight either. Even badly injured, Kentaurosmon rises to the challenge to protect his friends and the human world. He ... Written by Anonymous

Headway for the story and some solid character insight moves the series back on track
11 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a good episode, with further revelations on the situation and lots of character development for Marcus. We finally learn that Kudamon is actually the ambassador for King Drasil between the Digital and real worlds, which I think is one of the better surprises in the series, as it puts a somewhat different spin on earlier efforts.

Marcus takes some time to process his discovery about Spencer, recollecting the day he left. This flashback, belated as it is, provides a bit more insight into Marcus' tough guy demeanor; toughness seemed to earn his father's approval. His development thus far has amounted to a haphazard series of shallow emotional jumps, so a kick for his one truly distinct trait is welcome. It's also nice to see Sarah Damon provide a few words, in this case pointing out that Marcus has been the one looking out for them since Spencer disappeared. All of this makes an acceptable foundation for Marcus' story…and that's the problem.

The effect of a parent's absence on one of the main characters is relatively new to this franchise, the closest exception being Rika, whose father is only mentioned once in the series. Had this transpired in the first act of the season Marcus' character arc would have had much more direction, perhaps outlining how he overcompensated for Spencer's absence by fighting.

It's cool to see Gallantmon join in on the action, but the fight with him is mostly routine and predictable, with the exception of the freezing scene and the best moment, when Shinegreymon futilely shoots him at point-blank range only to get caught in the blast.

With Marcus splitting off from the team, opportunities are laid out for the others to get the spotlight, which should do nothing but help this final story arc.
