Nope. The VB crew isn't immune from cranking out the occasional subpar episode once in a while.
Pic most definitely related.
Hey guys, I haven't watched this ever and I know this isn't exactly the best thread to get a impartial opinion, but how good is this show and why would you recommend it to me?
This scene made the episode for me.
"Scene"/"P2P" groups failed to pirate the Eastern Time broadcast, so we had to wait until they pirated the Pacific Time broadcast.
I remember some episodes where the release groups completely forgot about Venture Bros and it took days for the new episode to show up. This show kinda flies under the radar.
Yes, it's very good. It's a show with an ongoing story, made by an extremely small team of people who do not compromise on quality for anything as trivial as releasing more than ten episodes per decade or believable animation for the first few years. The writing, comedy, voice acting are all very good and the characterisation and character interaction over short- and long timescales are probably the best out of all cartoons.
I get the feeling they wanted to end that story in the next episode to give it some breathing room, but decided to dump all the uninteresting stuff in this episode to tie up all the loose ends.
It's kinda weird. I wonder if doc and hammer forgot hatred was once Brock and hunters superior In the osi or just the characters. I thought it was cool though glad to see hatred leading the security team.
Both are bad asses who at the end of the day love the Ventures the fact they can put guild/OSI stuff aside for the greater good is one of the strongest parts of the episode. Plus I loved Hatreds arc not where else is someone like Hatred gonna get redemption
Oh shit! He does want to cuck arch the Monarch.
I'm so happy about this. Dr. Dugong was one of my favorite one-shot (heh) villians, and Wide Whale reminded me of him. Gotta say, this revelation alone made the episode worth it, plus it got Pete and Billy to NY.
So does the Monarch's parent's house having a lair in it confirm that they were villians (and probably arching Jonas Sr?). Feels like that would make the most sense for him being obsessed with Rusty.
So I was taking a crap and it came to me. What killed Jonas Venture was the Investors. The Investors were not new but likely millenia old in their affairs. Jonas' desperate call of love to Rusty indicated he knew his time was up, it was all coming to an end. Jonas had fame, money, all the pussy a man could want and 50% extra, the life of an adventurer/spy, and super science like no other. Jonas was a virtual god. I'm also betting Jonas was not born with that large stature and a dick so mighty it could traumatize children for decades. Look at Rusty, look at what is probably going to be his other son the Monarch. Both are of a slender frame. Or take JJ, twins are absorbed because they're weak and look at his cancerous final days. Look at Dr. Qynummy. She is also a bit of a let down, desperate enough to fuck Rusty, and having a severe seizure disorder. Jonas was not shooting the best DNA.
>select all images with trains
This day keeps getting better and better
This episode was too chaotic imo. Season one episodes could be recaped in a single sentence. "Venture family meets the Impossibles"; "Venture family goes to their space station."
This could only be summarized as "Billy and Pete fight their archenemy. Monarch and Henchman 21 attempt to win back the arching rights of Venture. The Venture family tries to fix their company."
I like the Greece episode a lot because it felt like one of the older episodes. A single plot episode essentially.
>Billy and Pete fight their archenemy
This was required for the build up in the next episode where Billy and Pete will start working for ventures and with their tech help them face Wild Wale
dugong was never part of the guild. he was always a super scientist doing good, it was wide wale that joined the guild by himself in the 80s. one brother was good, the other became bad. hatred say "HE" not "THEY"
Was I the only one who thought the last minute sale of Conjectural Technologies was tacked on? Couldn't they have done more with it if Billy and White went to work at Ventech and later all their contributions to super science get remanded to the custody of Augustus and the Guild by some legal precedent or the like? Billy and White already had no where to go, and no friends except Rusty, it was a logical choice for them to go to Ventech palms out and hungry for work.
I suppose the legal scenario could still take place under some kind of legal nonsense as part of the sale of CT.
The show has one of the most unique types of humor there is.
The main character is Rusty, who essentially is a parody of Jonny Quest. Then the ACTUAL JONNY QUEST shows up. The character that is parodied ends up in the very parody. This isn't the only time something like this happens. There's a parody of the Fantastic Four called the Impossibles. They end up winning best costume at a Halloween party for dressing up as the Fantastic Four.
Venture Bros., from my point of view, is basically /co/: the show (less tumblr than /co/ is).
post theories, about anything
The original Hank and Dean are still alive. They live with their mother. They are about 23.
Rusty couldn't handle having his kids taken away so he cloned them.
The mother is the true antagonist of the show and the original Hank and Dean work for her.

This episode had everything I've ever wanted.
Vendata is The Monarch's father.
>Going by other recent theories, the Monarch's father was a vigilante of sorts, an expy of Green Hornet it seems.
>Vendata is a robocop expy. RoboCop and the Green Hornet are both cop-like antiheroes who are, for the most part, killing their enemies.
>The Monarch's father could have easily been targeted by villains who found out his secret identity.
>The Monarch's father, who died in a plane crash, could have been assassinated. The plane intentionally blowing up rather than an accident.
>Rusty is implied to be responsible to some degree in the plane crash.
>Vendata was a former human
>In 1976, Vendata, his wife and child go on some plane ride
>The plane blows up
>His wife died
>He was saved from the wreckage by Jonas Venture Sr.
>Jonas, unable to cope with the death of his close friend, turns the Monarch's father into a cyborg called Vendata
>By turning him into RoboCop, Jonas is not just saving his friend but upgrading his weaponry and means of getting his revenge (VENdata)
>Vendata reacted poorly to the process, going into a berserk rage, where he ends up attacking Rusty Venture
>After the attack, Vendata goes rogue, loses his humanity and becomes a villain on the council of 13
>Vendata attacking Rusty remains one of Rusty's most traumatic experiences
-Vendata being Monarchs dad
-The Orb still having some unbelievable power and will play some key part in the overarching mythology
-Whatever god entity the Investors and Killinger are will definitely play a huge part, possibly a balance of good and evil ideology as was hinted at by his quoting Shakespeare in season 3 (and General Manhowers referencing the Bible thereafter)
Pretty sure he says "One of the" instead of "When the", albeit very fast.
If you listen to the rest of the quote, "When the Ong Brothers joined the guild in '87, ruthless", it doesn't make any sense
What if it's a creepy powerplay.
Like he brings in these badass Well Trained mercs, lays out a bunch of money on the table and says, I want you to dress like a Lobster themed villain from a bad Power Rangers knockoff.
And then they do it.
>This season isn't going to be all about watching Rusty predictably destroy his company
YES, YES, YEESSSSS!
This scene made me so happy.
Is St. Cloud just some lazy excuse for the writers to shove in references up the ass?
I loved that scene, and not just because it looks like he's going to stay out of the poor house.
I guess that's Rusty to a core - he's trying to live up to this image of his father that he both admires and resents, but without the basic practicality to achieve that. When he predictably fails to achieve his grand vision, he becomes depressed and everything falls to shit.
Sea Captain, you are the best.
he invented the joy can, brought a man back as a zombie-man, and made the OOO Ray. dr. venture is good at super science only when it's morally wrong super science, which is why Henry Killinger thinks he'd be a better super villain.
Brock's been with them since the twins were toddlers. You're bound to bond with them emotionally in that much time.
Hatred originally loved the Ventures just to spite the Monarch for stealing his shit. Who knows why now, though.
probably, but i mean the venture bros is pretty much based on references.
also being a NJ man, i`m glad to know the Monarch considered Newark worse than Paterson. fuck both those places but at least one is a cesspool compared to the other.
I guess Wide Wale is related to that one scientist the Monarch killed
Does anyone think Manolo will join the Monarch as a henchman?
It's all coming together now. He wasn't wanting Mrs. Monarch's cootch, he wants the guy who killed his brother. He may or may not know who killed Doug.
He was also in a bad place since his wife left him, actually NTR'd him. The man was starved for attention, and since Princess Tinyfeet was his crutch against young boys, he wound up playing den mother to the Venture twins after Brock left.
Anybody else sign up for this seasons shirt club? Already in love with the Quizboy/Pink Pilgrim idea and fucking stoked its on a shirt.
It will be a failure.
Nothing will really pan out or be as good as they were hoping.
The Speculative Branch will remain an unending pet project of Ventech industries unendingly
unceasinglychasing windmills because they're men of hope.
He considers Newark better, plus he has a mansion. Though it's really a midget dwarf situation since he openly thinks it's a shithole.
Atleast neither is Camden
First time subbing to the t-shirt club. I was kinda hesitant to drop 200$ on a bunch of random shirts, but the first couple have all been really really good.
Really like the Batman thing they did with this one
He's like a totally morally bankrupt Hank Pym but can't actually give enough of a fuck to be a villain. So he tries to be a crappy scientist with least amount of effort needed to be one.
>Monarchs parents are doing SOMETHING secret with the lair
>Baby Monarch sees the lair, they go to Jonas Sr for a mindwipe, which he does
>Pic of Rusty and Monarch is right after the mindwipe, Rusty being a spoiled brat probably stole Monarchs toy or something
>Monarch could possibly hate Rusty for a childhood dick move that snowballed into arching
The batcave Monarch finds reveals what really happened. His parents were killed by members of the Guild, who may have also been the real reason Jonas Sr. died.
Thus, the Monarch becomes an assassin not because of an overreaction to the Guild not respecting him, but to avenge his family for the life that was taken from him.
Either he was unaware that him and Rusty are good friends
which wouldn't make sense since he saw them at Spanikopita together.Or he wanted to gloat over flipping a penny into a million dollars, or he just wanted the money and was fine with having humiliated Billy that once
He's hardly ever used guns, and it's not like he was depressed, just either on edge most of the time or restless because of whatever new shit Doc was making him do.
His little getaway from the Venture family pretty much gave him a chance to reassess things and get his head back in the game
Yeah, and the fact Billy is also probably his kid, and maybe the Monarch (His eyebrows and whatever else goofy shit he's got) if this is true, then JV SR was probably a much more capable phantom limb type, who in turn used his powers for good.
I don't really know where you're getting it from other than maybe the "when was the last time you went to the zoo" but the implication was pretty clear he got the idea to steal a polar bear.
I think the point is to show maybe that OSI is forcing him to take things seriously.
Hypothesis: Monarch's dad was a Batman-style vigilante and reserve member of Team Venture. He will become a vigilante, killing or disabling the Rusty arches on the list ahead of him.
When Wide Wale finds out Monarch killed his brother, shit hits the fan.
Bonus points if Wale goes through Guild procedure and becomes Monarch's new arch.
>2nd episode in a season (technically 3rd)
Why are people jumping to crazy conclusions like Samson being suicidal and not the fact Billy/Pete, Ventures, and the Monarch all lost their homes one way or another and have become crazy important people in the universe (Monarch and 21 finding underground lair and Billy/White working for Venture)
he was off the wagon for, like, half an episode. i dont even know why they bothered doing it in the first place. I think they're keeping him clean now. We've seen that what haunts him is the people he's failed that he cared about, so now we're probably gonna see him give it his all.
So the running idea is that blue 'Green Hornet' is the Monarch's dad. His wife dies in a plane crash while also believing his son perished too. Turns him into Vendetta and then somewhere along the way he dies. Then his friend Jonas Sr. makes him into Vendetron. So is that about it? Man that guy had a rough life.
Remember the first Season 6 promo? The one where Watch and Ward (love those guys) warn you about the guy killing villains who looks like Doc? I think it could be the Monarch. This episode gave him a motive to kill villains, to get back to arching Venture. Would he turn to murdering his fellow villains?
St. Cloud of course
Though he actually wasn't that bad during this episode
>It's a "Jackson and Doc try hard to be professionals and talk about the episode" track
I mean I guess I kind of admire how anal Doc can get about some shit, I already know he's going to get so anal ravaged on every closeup of Wale because you can clearly see it's just a vertical line pattern imposed over him, I don't even think it moves correctly with him, but I love how they just go off on random tangents.
But the BEST part is when they come up with stuff they actually use during the commentaries.
And he became a robosexual because I guess that's something that happens in the Ventureverse
Does anyone else want to start tucking their tie into their shirt?
Been meaning on listening to more Duran Duran lately too.
What the fuck is Killinger?
Because he's terrifying.
A magical friend of Richard Nixon and headless Agnew.
I dunno, i'm scared if VB ends then Jackson and Doc will never be heard from again. But they say they have a movie in mind but it will be 2525 before it sees the light of day im guessing. So until J&D come up with another hit show I say keep the Venture Brothers going. Plus every season has been a slow burn for the most part. This one seems to be a running story.
It still makes me wonder why we have not ever heard from the guys who write Harvey Birdman after the show and those guys are super talented. I dont want that for Jackson and Doc
I'm guessing he's a bit of both.
Seriously though, I love how well they portray him as being equal parts horrifying and compassionate, and still make him funny. I just rewatched The Doctor is Sin and it's golden.
Also, since I'm rewatching all the old episodes, I finally found out who this fucker was.
Half-theory: The ball Billy and Pete saved was the real orb that Sandow broke
It is actually incredibly easy to repair, but Jonas was killed when he tried to "fix" the decoy instead.
>during a "friendly" dinner wherein they discuss the arching rights to Rusty
>Wale: You know, I've always wondered why you hated the good doctor so much.
>Monarch: Eh, you wouldn't understand.
>Wale: Did he murder your brother?
>Monarch: What? No. I-I don't have a brother.
>Wale: I did.
She should have given Monarch a seat on the Council to keep him happy.
Doctor Girlfriend should know by now that if he's not allowed to arch Venture, bad shit happens. Give him some power/a seat on the council (there are like 5-6 openings!) and that would let her keep an eye on him and probably soothe Monarch's ego enough for him to let go of Rusty and not make trouble.
Yes, Killinger will probably have a huge cow but hey! There is your new storyline for Sheila (Killinger not liking her going against him and giving Monarch a council seat) and there would be talk and whispers about it being nepotism, but hey they can have Doctor Girlfriend justify it by claiming Monarch's roll in stopping Phantom Limb's coup alone justifies giving him a council spot.
Monarch kills his men willy-nilly and despises Phantom Limb for being his ex-boss and for fucking Sheila without his consent. Let him on the council and he'll be dead within a week after killing half of the not-13 for startling him.
This episode with him discovering the cave is probably how he becomes the blue guy murdering villains, using all that old pulp gear.
They could get some mileage out of Phantom Limb and Monarch being forced to work together and eventually becoming friends.
Also, they could go the angle of Monarch actually being GOOD at being the head of a super-villain cartel and have Sheila become jealous because her husband has found his niche and she no longer has the position of being the "competent one" of the pair.
Just reiterating what other people found.
Recently released with all sorts of fun goodies.
I remember listening to the commentary for S1-3 and hating them. Doc and Chris are just terrible to listen to sometimes. IIRC, they didn't really say anything funny or interesting. To be fair, I had just listened to the Futurama commentaries and those were awesome, so I had high hopes.
Haven't listened to the other seasons, but yeah.
I don't know, Sheila actually enjoys when the Monarch is competent as well, like when he "crushed" Doctor Venture.
I could see Monarch and Phantom Limb becoming not-enemies.
The thing I'm looking forwards to the most is the inevitable MCU Iron-Man expy.
>This was required for the build up in the next episode where Billy and Pete will start working for ventures
Not required at all and could really use some Checkov's Gun (the REAL Checkov's gun: "remove everything that is superfluous to the plot")
Doc could have bought Conjectural Technologies directly, WITHOUT having to go through St Cloud.
That entire plotline was done for comedy, but it wasn't funny. They could have spent that time with more hwhacky drug addict pirate jokes.
It was plenty funny. Despite the three being all giddy about becoming part of the costume adventuring, Billy and Pete, and St. Cloud are just a trio of geeks goofing around compared to the likes Rusty deals with. And that's saying something given now Rusty has to deal with a serious 10 on the villain scale for once
I do wonder where Orpheus is staying now. Did every building in the compound go up in smoke, or just the main building and those by it? Because if the further ones didn't burn, he might shack up in there like Hunter and SPHINX did.
Though I could see him winding up in Outrider's house for a few weeks.
>Tries to dote on Triana once more while Outrider and Tatyana just let her do whatever
>Has to deal with hearing Outrider and Tatyana going at it at 3 in the morning
>More annoyed by the fact that Triana's room is nearby and exposing her to their "noises"
We already know this from an entire five seasons of seeing how geeky they are and how inept the Monarch is.
A recap consisting of "these guys sold all of their assets in exchange for a red rubber ball" is redundant, and personally I didn't find it funny at all, just boring. "Oh he's using a hand puppet to wash his groin/butt, hilarious."
Orpheus is one of the few characters in the series that actually has gainful employment. He could probably find an apartment anywhere.
If there's a takeaway from this episode, it's "you can't live on your father's/brother's money forever, you have to get a job."
The concept of falilure has been an overarching theme through every season.
This season though, is looking different.
If you look at how things are going, even in the first 3 episodes, it appears that we may finally have a season where the Ventures achieve, ACTUAL, great things.
So many fucking archs in this show.
Eh, they've been showing some measure of success with certain characters here and there all the time. Monarch's life was practically rising from the end of season 2 until the end of 5.
>Reconciled with the love of his life, marrying her
>Became partners instead of the boss and his #2
>Got a nice house in a gated community
>One of his most incompetent henchmen turned himself into a professional, as far as more henches go
>Wife started to get into the higher echelons of their group
Hell, the only real failures are the strain Mrs. Monarch's responsibilities have put on their relationship, and Monarch losing all but one of his henchmen to a freak cocoon fire.
And depending on how you look at it, Brock taking a break from babysitting helped him regain the zest for "crazy, mind-blowing weirdness" he had been kind of losing interest in late into season 2 and through a chunk of 3.
Yeah, people can't distinguish between "theme" and "constant eventuality." The show can have the theme of failure without everybody failing all the time.
Almost everyone on the show is mostly-successful.
I would say Doc was in a gradual tumble. He was pretty much just skirting by on the military hardware or whatever he did while trying to hawk his inventions. And it does seem like the whole costumed villainy/arching biz was stagnating, which is likely why "Bowie" decided to blow the whole thing for a kick.
Like any good arch-nemesis he knows that if he completely destroys Billy it'll be the end of their relationship. He still won but provided Billy with some hope that things will get better so that he can knock him down again.
Do have to wonder if he'll try to bother Rusty with his crap. I'd imagine he might almost step on Wale's toes, since we can assume Billy and Pete are now going to live in the new building. Though of course, Wale might very well bust Cloud's ass if he does anything to bother Venture/violate the arching laws
I really hope the Monarch gets what he deserves.
This scene has always rubbed me the wrong way. A lot of people are a part of the Guild and the super science community as a hobby. The Monarch and Phantom Limb are the only true villains I feel. The Monarch doesn't even care to have the Guild in arching Venture. Where as all the villains are assigned someone to arch, the Monarch's arching is probably the only personal one.
Dr. Dugong seemed like one of those people who was just having fun with everything. He was presented as childlike, sweet and naive ("I have a tank full of gentle cuttlefish"). Definitely did not deserve to die.
It's implied all the time that this arching thing is dangerous and leads to violent death.
Sgt Hatred killed all of The Monarch's henchmen (except 21). The Guild has helicopters and assassins and whatnot. OSI operatives have a license to kill.
Dr Dugong had it coming.
Anyway none of this "universe" makes sense because all these paramilitary organizations exist while the actual government and the actual military exist too. So the government lets all this killing happen and does nothing about it.
It'd be more believable if the Guild and OSI and whatnot had a strict "no killing or maiming" policy, but that would lower the stakes so much to make it literally a LARP society.
This makes zero sense (but most of the stuff on the shoe doesn't make sense anyway)
You might have some rich crazy bastards running personal armies, but covertly. The Monarch has openly killed several people and openly shot tranquillizer darts into several more people, this isn't the sort of thing normal governments put up with.
Which means either the US government in the Venture universe is incredibly corrupt - taking kickbacks from the Guild that even killing and assaulting innocent people is ignored on all levels - or it's incredibly inept and can't even arrest The Monarch.
We get to see a hint of this in Momma's Boys, where the police hand over Hank and 21 to an asylum because 21 cites some Guild byline.
>By Guild of Calamitous Intent [memo?] 28 3 21 M H, we are both clearly obsessively insane and we demand a Guild representative to take us to Duwich asylum.
The police acknowledges and respects Guild rulings, which means this is all legal (or corrupt)
Hunter Gathers and the other OSI boss seem to suggest this is all legal too (or the corruption goes all the way up to the President and the Secret President.)
Which means the police and other law enforcement give fuck-all about private armies and innocent people getting killed.
Remember the original guild had some of the most influential people of the day in it. Chances are the guild is basically intertwined so deeply with the governments of the world that they can't expose or remove them without causing irreparable damage to themselves. In the last big special OSI seemed to be tasked with simply observing them to make sure they didn't go crazy.
Oh and Phantom Limb's grandfather (?) founded the Guild (during Teddy Roosevelt's presidency?) which kind of makes sense because "super science" was really coming into its own in the early 20th century.
So the government goes "okay we got mad scientists running around everywhere, maybe we can form a union and let them do their thing under certain conditions" which doesn't work for me, since this means the government accepts that people can openly murder one another.
Maybe the theme of failure is just a individual focused thing but that the setting as a whole is a failure. In the Venture universe, the patients are running the asylum. It's a totally upside down world that kind of still somehow finds a way to function.
That feeling when you get aroused seeing Doc Hammer as a women
God i wanna fuck her
It IS legal, Brock more or less says the only real way to get cops to come down on you in the Venture verse is to kill a cop.
Anon is neglecting a few things with the Guild.
It's not just that the Guild is the crazy rich and powerful
sometimes literally, but there are also SCIENTISTS and guys on the good guy side that like the game too. Jonas probably found all the nonsense sporting.
The OSI before Gathers ontop of being compromised by the Guild didn't seem much to care about what they did.
Then there's the fact three OP as fuck immortal demons were literally running the thing from the shadows.
I'm not sure it would be as accurate to categorize him in that sense, maybe more in the lawful sense (though he is clearly affiliated with evil). Him keeping an order to things doesn't automatically make him good though.
I hope there's a scene of him happily playing with Cuttlefish, maybe even suggesting someone else play with it for its therapeutic affects.
Outright Evil was probably the Investors, still living probably Moltov. Good probably Dean and Hank.
Killinger is simply an agent of self-actualization, evil and good have no meaning to him. He wants to help people be the best villains they can be or help them realize they're not villains at all. Either way, super nice guy.
Though putting Venture characters into neat little good and evil boxes is mostly useless since good and evil has more or less been turned part game part business, the parts that aren't just play fighting the great moral struggle are ridiculously grey. Hunter has and will unashamedly ruin innocent lives for what he thinks is the greater good.
>or help them realize they're not villains at all
I fully believe that's what he was doing with Rusty. Even if he wasn't originally written for that to be the case, it would make so much more sense.
The Monarch. Every other villain seems to be doing this for enjoyment. The Monarch is a villain because of pure hatred. He just doesn't seem to be outright evil because he's too much of a joke.
That's dumb reasoning. "Enjoyment" can still include malevolence and malice, and Monarch's hatred extends mainly to Rusty, is mostly the equivalent of a schoolyard rivalry, and even then he's pretty lax in that hatred half the time.
This could actually be the Monarchs father in his suit, a kind of green hornet/dick Tracey type guy, which would make sense, with his tons of money and under ground layer. Who's to say he doesn't have a side kick like Kano that could be 24
Brock would be deadlier if he used Guns, Gary and the other butterflies even said that was an issue when Hatred took over the role since he actually shot them and they had no body armour.
Hell, Rusty went from trying (and failing) to hire illegal immigrants, to hiring college interns, to inheriting JJ's business ventures. There's definitely been an upward swing to the whole series.
Their bit seems to be "make a deal" then down the line they murder the fuck out of you/take something so they can use it in another deal.
King Gorilla signed away his heart so he could die on the outside.
Or maybe they gave him cancer in the first place
Somehow I doubt they'll ever truly answer everything about him. Hell, the most we learned in the season 6 premiere special is that he's not the only of his kind, or even remotely human.
True, but we didn't know he had a brother back then. Or at least, it wasn't stated his brother was one of the most famous villains alive.
Still, wish some people would stop being cunts over people not getting everything right away. This kind of shit borders on the levels of obnoxious Dark Souls fans
That was nearly 20 years ago. The man clearly fell on hard times, even before becoming Rusty's arch during season 3. Hell, he probably wasn't even a 6 or 7 given Rusty barely acknowledged his attempts, and his henchmen just seemed slightly more competent than the murderflies.
Killinger's refusal of a Council seat to The Monarch was to push Monarch down the road of his destiny: to uncover the truth about his past and parents, prove his skill via triumphing over the best the Guild has to offer as the villain-killer, and eventually take his rightful place as the Guild's new Sovereign (I mean Monarch and Sovereign basically mean the same thing, and Meteor Majeur has the stylized M theme going on in its Council room.)
As the Sovereign, the Monarch will be perfectly placed to make outrageous archings against the still 'top client' Rusty Venture, who is now supersciencing with the money from his brother's Angry Birds business model, succesfully ran by the Captain. Rusty and the Monarch's relationship will become the focal point for the war between the Guild and the OSI.
Also, St. Cloud on the Council.
On a tangent: I could go for a whole episode of literally nothing but St. Cloud mocking the Quizboy.
While I'm not too sure about Malcolm taking the role of Sovereign, especially after Sheila and the others decided to abolish the concept, the idea of Killinger denying him a seat to essentially lead him to the not-Batcave is a fun possibility.
I don't know, they seem pretty set on it and probably aren't going to let some just take control since most of the guild is envious and would break into a fight if one attempted to just jump the ranks like that.
Though I could see it that they place Monarch in control when they realized the Guild just isn't the same without a figurehead, and they let him take the position because most of the guild hardly acknowledges him
>probably aren't going to let some just take control since most of the guild is envious and would break into a fight if one attempted to just jump the ranks like that.
Well that's kinda what I was getting at. The Guild is in a tenuous position, what with them trying to figure out who to bring onto the Council, and trying to re-establish themselves, so power plays could crop up. Monarch could get drawn in and emerge top dog. Would also feed into potential GoT references, if Hammer and Publick even still care about that. Though it would be difficult ground to cover with such short seasons now.
>they place Monarch in control when they realized the Guild just isn't the same without a figurehead, and they let him take the position because most of the guild hardly acknowledges him
Although, yea, this is way more likely to happen.
He tries to leave the house, and they're standing outside with knives trying to threaten them. He says something to the effect of
>"I'm only going to say this once: I don't like you two, and if you EVER try to give me an order again, I will personally kill you two and feed you to the neighbourhood cats"
and they both let him pass.
I came in here to see if anyone else thought he wanted revenge for Dr. Dugong
Nobody liked them.
Not the fans.
If anything I think it was just a reason to write them out of the show because they didn't like them nor did they have any plans past "they're midget creeps."
Though they died off screen, followed by a big explosion. So if Doc and Jackson get any ideas they're easy to resurrect but until then they're probably hanging out with Kim trying to fix the ORB.
One season to learn nobody liked them, another to get them the fuck out of there. Seems pretty simple. I mean they were barely in their second season and they had the only character who liked them say she was getting fed up with their shit.
Then they died.
