Somebody posted this on Tumblr, about what happened in those final minutes of the episode, when they're all back in the lab.Strangely_Scott wrote:Yeah, why are they surprised when she screws up? If they're are going to withhold information then of course Laura's going to make bad decisions.Snickie wrote:Heck, the group should've given her more details on Lyoko and stuff and I bet Laura would've had second thoughts about asking just William to go to the Cortex.
This makes me really upset. William agreed to go with Laura knowing it was against the group's wishes (and knowing why, something Laura didn't). To me that's even more traitorous than what Laura did because she was clueless. And yet they acquitted him while condemning Laura.WIlliam thanked the group for saving him and that with this he knew he could trust and count on them. Meanwhile, Jeremie announced he devised a new return to the past trip that would surely erase Laura’s memory. They agreed to vote Laura out of the group and Laura was like, you can’t do that! Jeremie’s last words in the episode are “Oh yes I can" and the scene cuts to end credits.
This reminds me of episode 49 when the LWs all turned against Jeremie because of some falsified bad news the fake Franz Hopper gave them. Or episode 62 Nobody in Particular when he somehow managed to lose Ulrich while trying to virtualize him directly into sector 5.
I was referring to when Laura was trying to bring up the Megapod initially and there were still no monsters in sight. William used supersmoke to get through the Cortex safely before, when he was back on digital turf for the first time in episode 2 after Jeremie had offered him a vehicle. What stopped him from doing it this time?Strangely_Scott wrote:I think William started to panic. When freaking out it's easy to forget the obvious solution (Granted it didn't stop me from yelling at the screen in frustration).Snickie wrote:Also: WILLIAM, WHY DIDN'T YOU USE SUPERSMOKE TO GET THROUGH THE CORTEX?! You didn't need the Megapod! And Laura clearly wasn't delivering. Which, if Laura's such a computer expert, then why did she keep having problems materializing the Megapod while Jeremie came in and did it without a single hitch?
As for Laura I found that stupid too. But it might have been bugging up or perhaps Jeremy had withheld the materialization process for the Megapod, perhaps a code or password was needed to enable it. I can't exactly fault them completely on that since I don't know exactly how the programming works. It was definitely clunky and plot convenient though. Maybe it was an off day for her, even Jeremy breaks the computer every once in a while.
And if Jeremie had put a code or password on the Megapod, why didn't he do that for the virtualization too? That could've avoided a whole lot of mess.
