(spoilers for Ladybug episode titles)
I saw a few people talking about how they would have to “watch the episodes out of order” because Riposte’s English dub came out before La Befana’s, etc.
So, I felt it was a good idea to remind everyone that, just like last season, there is no final order of episodes.
With the exception of obviously plot-specific ones, eg. Volpina, this show is episodic. For the most part, broadcasters choose the order in which episodes are aired. Thus, with the exception of major plot points, you can watch most episodes (at least those aired thus far) in just about any order.
What does this mean for the episode numbers? It’s gonna get real confusing real fast as more countries air episodes, but it looks like thus far we’ve been using the same method that we started season 1 with: what I call “international episode order.” This is the first worldwide premiere of an individual episode, regardless of country or language.
Here is this season’s order according to international order:
- Collector/Le Collecteur
- Despair Bear/Doudou vilain
- Prime Queen/Audimatrix
- La Befana
- Dark Owl/Hibou Noir
Keep this in mind when seeing numbered episodes! Also don’t feel the need to necessarily limit yourself based on which episodes you have and haven’t seen (though this is subject to change based on the events in future episodes). We can wait until the end of the season to try to work out which episodes appear chronologically in a timeline, or at least figure out what an intended viewing order would be.
tl;dr: there is no episode order. Refer to episodes by their names
