Storyline

Injured during Chase's payback prank, Adam's confidence turns upside-down, leaving him in extreme fear for his personal safety (enough to quite the team). Meanwhile, an emergent ability strikes Bree, enabling her to vocally imitate whatever she hears. Leo talks her into harassing Principal Perry with it, but she eventually goes too far, ends up in trouble, and counts on her superpowers to get her out of it. Written by statmanjeff

Quotes

Donald Davenport: Look, Chase, I know this is fun for you, but if Adam stops going on missions, we as a unit are in trouble. The only way to fix this is to stop tearing down his confidence and start building it up again.
Chase Davenport: I can't do that. If he gets his confidence back, I'm just gonna go back to being his punching bag.
Donald Davenport: Or maybe now that Adam knows what it's like to be picked on, he'll treat you differently.
Chase Davenport: Yeah. I don't know if you've noticed, but Adam isn't really the best at learning... things.

How to get a bully to stop
30 November 2017 | by flarefan-81906See all my reviews

In this ep, Plot A sees Adam losing all confidence after he gets hurt by a prank Chase pulls on him, while in Plot B Bree discovers her hidden ability is imitating other people's voices and uses it to get on Principal Perry's bad side. Both could have been done better but ultimately win my approval.

Plot A opens up the potential to explore the complex relationships between siblings: Chase cares about his brother and wants him back on the team, but realizes that restoring his confidence will allow Adam to go back to bullying him. That potential is more touched on than explored, and I really don't like how they try to make Adam's physical abuse of Chase into a joke. That said, there is at least a smidge of real heart in this plot thread, and Adam's climactic resolution to stop thinking got a sincere laugh out of me, a laugh that drew equally from humor and the lovableness of Adam's character.

The requisite lip-syncing of Plot B is often inadequate. More crucially, I can't buy that Bree's uninspired pranks would fool anyone as well as they do. However, this is redeemed by the hilarious final act, in which Bree combines her speed and voice mimicry to hold up two sides of a phone call. Davenport's unexplained appearance at the school is a huge plot hole, but not enough to sink this portion of the ep.
