Oh no! Evilness! And CGI bats!
Good lord. Did we really need to spend a quarter of the episode on that bit about how Alisha can talk to Sorey's invisible friends when they have absolutely nothing to say? Seriously. "Hey, we can talk." "K. Bye." Except it took five minutes to get through and then they went off to the real fun, talking about their spider sense, poking at walls, and council meetings. What a thrilling and enthralling first half. They couldn't even let "you stumbled across a secret door" go without question and explanation.
Unfortunately, the 'action' this week was exceptionally phoned in. They fought a bunch of CGI bats by flailing at a cloud until one of them said screw it and fireballed the whole thing. And then they spent a while blathering on about how difficult walking and breathing is for him and how he needs to conserve his power level. All this leading up to the reveal of the grand quest to… go on adventures and defeat the evil overlord. But only if he's strong enough to do that. You're causing me physical pain with this BS, guys.
