ToG’s Rewatch - Ben 10: Omniverse S2E8 - Rules Of Engagement

Series: Ben 10: Omniverse

Season: 2

Episode: 8

Air Date: March 23rd, 2013

Synopsis: Looma attacks Ester’s village, forcing Ben, Rook, and Julie after capturing Fistina to stop her.

Fistina’s just broken out of a jewelry store with an expensive necklace, but XLR8 and Rook are on the case, they manage to catch her, (she’s showing some signs of being into Rook), and Ben sees that Julie is back in town and heads off to see her, leaving Rook to take care of the prisoner. And when Ben gets there, it seems Julie has hooked up with some new guy. So Flashback to during UAF times (Ben still has the green jacket), he’s playing a Sumo Slammers game, picks up the phone (Julie’s calling), and doesn’t I don’t know…PAUSE THE GAME?! So instead, he ends up yelling nonsense about the game at Julie too. Ben tries to talk to her, but then Ester shows up. The Kraaho Hotspot is under attack.

So it’s up to the unlikely team of Ben, Rook, Ester, Julie, French dude, and possibly Fistina to save the day. And guess who it is? It’s Looma Red Wind. cue a long fight, some yelling, some confusion, Fistina decks Looma in the back.  Looma kidnaps the rest and calls for a ship, leaving only Ben and Fistina to be our heroic duo of the day. Jury Rigg takes the parts of Rook’s truck and builds what I think is the Tenn-Speed Cycle, and Fistina can track her missing arm, so the two set off. Meanwhile, Looma visits the Tennyson Home, offering her bag of people (“Something conquered, something bruised, something severed, and something blue.”)

So more fighting, blah blah blah, Looma declares Julie her rival, Julie calls in Ship. so now it’s Looma, Battle Julie, and Fistina, while Ball Weevil’s stuck to a wall. French dude decides to take some shots of the fight. Ship gets tired, so Julie ends up using Ball Weevil (stuck in an explosive ball) as a tennis ball, and serves it to Looma. Since Julie beat her (Technically), this gets Looma off of Ben’s back. And as of today, there’s no ill between Ben and Julie anymore. (Also, there’s a great joke about Julie never actually liking Mr. Smoothie anyway). So he heads off with Ester to help clean up the Hotspot, leaving Rook and Fistina to themselves. Rook arrests her and presumably takes her back to the Headquarters.

7/10. 4 points down for Ben’s stupidity, but 1 more because Looma, this one was alright. FINALLY ANOTHER OV REVIEW DONE THOUGH, IT’S BEEN FOREVER.

Join me next time for the Season 2 Finale of Ben 10: Omniverse, “Showdown”, Parts 1 and 2!
