Dr. Z pieces together the story of how he made Vendata for his Guild cohorts — by refurbishing Venture’s now destroyed Venturion (Jonas Ventuee Sr.’s reconsteucted Blue Morpho android using his dead friend’s parts). If it wasn’t creepy enough check out this hilarious, Venture-Style design flaw.
After being dispatched from the front of Ventec by the NYPD prepping for the parade The Guild holds an informal meeting to discuss the past and what lead to the current events, with Brock in toe, at a knockoff version of New York’s famous Starlight Diner. They reveal an unexpected twist that Sphynx didn’t kill Jonas Venture in the Gargantua 1 mkvie night massacre, but the guild did as an accident caused by Venturion/Vendata/The Blue Morpho and the Sovereign framed Sphynx using his shapeshifting and ignited the Pyramid Wars that shaped OSI history. The revelation feels more informational than influential considering the remaining Sphynx members died in season 4. It could serve as a catalyst to spark change or a development arc for Brock, which we feel is necessary because the ” he is not in familiar territory while in the city and keep making mistakes and being less badass” bit is getting tired (highlighted in the mistakes made early on where he himself blocks the entrance after a fall that tore the V logo off of Ventec Tower.
Of all the bothersome death filled plot twists, one was predicted long ago. Dr. Orpheus predicted Action Man’s stroke back in season 1 episode 12 and it finally came to fruition. Even at the best joint efforts of Mr. White and Orpheus himself, they were only able to get Action Man to the hospital where he is now in a comma. It’s sadder when you consider the possibility that Billy’s mom will be alone again, but at least we got the “Toast!” Exclamation out of it?
The more dramatic, supposedly “shocking” (mostly frustrating) ending, is the Vendata/Jonas standoff turns stupidly stalemated double death when Jonas goes too ham trying to steal the robot body, but scoops up Rusty and Malcolm into the fray and when the robots crash the Monarch gets to claim the kills of the Blue Morpho and Jonas Venture in front of everyone, so we can expect his guild rank yo skyrocket. He isn’t bothered though, so we foresee more drama coming when he reconciles with Sheila.
