Alternate Samurai Jack Season 5 ending (SPOILERS)

For those who weren’t feeling the Gurren Lagann ending.

Likened to the show, Aku rains death down on everyone, the 300 and 1, and Scottsman’s daughters even are looking like they will die, and some of them are wounded to the point of it.

Aku cackles in victory as the last piece of the puzzle is laid waste at his feet, Ashi is about to deliver the final blow to Jack.

It’s then that like in the show, his words “I love you” trigger something in her to find strength enough to resist him. She defends Jack and counters Aku with his own power.

She regains the sword for Jack and creates a portal in time upon the revelation of the ability to wield darkness like he can.

Aku tries to stop him but he slashes him hurting him, and…although Jack doesn’t notice it, Ashi winces as well, but ignores this.

Either way they both jump through the portal.

But Aku noticed, and as they vanish, in thought, he finally cackles again, knowing what’s to come. He knows he still will win, even in the past.

“Foolish Samurai!” he bellows as the rest of the legions of the resistance look up at him in confusion as to what he means, except for Scottsman; The Scottsman spoke to Jack of who has his heart, and knows what waits Jack in the past.

Scottsman:“Oh…laddie….” he says in remorse.

Jack and Ashi arrive in the past moments after Aku has banished the previous Jack, shocked at his soon return.

They do battle again, this time on the roof tops of the castle Aku has possessed, and Ashi fights with him.

Aku:“What?” -while fighting- “Who is this ingrate….who dares challenge me…along with you- ? I can tell by your scent you are a creature of mine!”

Ashi:“I am Ashi, and you will not wield me any longer, I am free of your sorcery and your hold on me…”

Jack:“You will never hurt her again…”

He strikes Aku down to the ground again like he did all those years ago, at his mercy, no energy in him again for another time portal to cowardly escape his fate.

But….

Now, Aku realizes she is birthed of his black magic, and cackles victoriously, Ashi is confused but it chills Jack to the bone.

Aku:“No , but…YOU will, foolish Samurai…”

Jack’s hands shake holding the sword.

Ashi:“What? What is it?”

Aku:“He has realized, if you are indeed my daughter, from the future…however that came about…what will happen to you, if HE slays ME…”

Jack:“……………..No…..”

Aku:“Defeat me at the cost of the life of your friend…destroy her, she means nothing to me….but to you? HA! She means everything, I sense it with every shiver down your spine samurai….”

Jack roars loud enough to be heard across the valley.

Aku:“Ahahahahahaha! One way or another Samurai, I win. You have a choice to make…throw in with me….or let me escape to my own devices, far from here…and i will let her live in happiness with you…or condemn your friend whom you love to death…”

That’s where the ghost’s of his ancestors or the samurai appear again.

They tell him, do it anyway.

They say it was his time to FINALLY kill Aku, and fulfill his purpose but he refuses again, and they warn him if he doesn’t, if he refused as he did before which lost him his magic sword in the first place, Aku will still reign and all will be undone.

Jack:“my sword will not kill an innocent!”

Ancestor:“She is no innocent Jack, she is a killer and part of Aku. Lord of Darkness! It is the only way:”

Jack:“No! It CANT be the only way, I won’t let it!”

Ancestor:“Has your time in the future filled you with such arrogance? Ungrateful one! You dishonor your fathers memory! Destroy Aku, restore balance to our world!”

Jack:“Arrogance? Arrogance! I was the one who gave up everything to learn to kill Aku, I was the one who went 50 years into the past and experienced the countless lives lost, trying to save "your world” as well as mine! Who lost my father, and my mother to this madness. I have been going mad for the sake of everyone and you call me ungrateful! You do not know my father if you believe questioning this would dishonor him!“

Female Ancestor:"Jack….your fathers sacrifice will still be in vain, all the same if you do not…”

Ashi puts a hand on his shaking shoulder.

Aku just chuckles to himself and begins to crawl away while he’s distracted.

Ashi:“Jack, it’s alright …I’m not worth it! Save the world…save your family…I’m part of Aku, they’re part of you, like your sword…”

Another portion of Aku forms a bow and aims it at Jack while he’s distracted.

Jack:“Your part of me too Ashi….I can’t - wait…that’s it!”
He suddenly springs into action. He slices the arrow in two, running full tilt after Aku. Aku tries to flee but Ashi, not missing a beat, uses her power to keep him steady.“

Aku:"No! Daughter! My child! What are you doing! Let me go! Release me or we will both die! We will cease to exiiiiiiiiiiiiiist-”

He’s struck down and banished from the world forever, and it resounds across Japan. Ashi wails and falls to the ground clutching her gut.

His tower falls , everyone cheers, Jack emerges from the ashes, everyone cheers louder.

“It’s Jack, he came back to the past!”

“The shoguns son has returned!”

“He saved us all!”

“There is his magic sword!”

“Hurrah for Jack!!”

But he runs past everyone carrying her weak body.

She gets weaker and weaker and wakes up on the back of a horse with him with the sky starry and dark above them.

Ashi:“You did it Jack…*cough* you killed Aku..you saved the past…*cough*.go back to your people, let me go…”

A bit of her fades.

Jack:“I vowed to not to kill just Aku, but to save everyone from his evil…that is what I will do now.”

She blacks out seeing her body fading a little more.


Finally She looks up and sees them in the temple where the sword was forged. He hold up the sword above her after putting her on the smithing alter.

The three Gods Appear.

Gods:“You have come to return the sword…or claim it for another time of need…”

Jack:“Neither.”

Gods:“What.”

Jack:“I do not relinquish it back to you.”

Vishnu God:“Your journey is done your mission is completed you have no need for it now.”

Set God:“it is not an item for decoration, for your hall of samurai, it is a living embodiment, and must be honored until called for again.”

Jack:“True, yet untrue, I still need it for one more thing. It is forged with the spirit of humanity, with the strength of my father, the love of my mother, and all our ancestors… in the end it was enough to save the world, and to slay Aku…”

Ashi:“Jack- *cough*…please…”

Jack:“….so it must be enough also, to replace him.”

Odin God:“You would give up the most priceless weapon on earth of unimaginable power, and good…”

Vishnu God:“When it could be used to prevent further dangers that may arise?”

Set God:”To win countless battles?”

Jack:“I would. It’s last sword swing will save a life, not take it.”

Set God:“….He truly is chosen…”

Odin God:“It is done…the darkness in her is now displaced with light that she may live…without it…”

-the sword turns with light and descends into Ashi as darkness seeps out of her and fades away like ash-

Gods:“Your sword will truly be by your side for all time.”

Jack holds her hand as she cries out shaking until the transfer and merging is complete.  Finally she opens her eyes, the glow in them leaving and turning to normal. She looks up at Jack.

Ashi:“….Jack….”

Jack:“It is fitting as you were the one who helped me to kill a Final blow to Aku. And were at my side and helped me find my way when it was not…”

We cut then to the wedding ceremony where she is walked down the Isle to the Daimyo Lord; Jack the Samurai who saved the world.

We pass by a tapestry depicting Jack as a child with his parents…and then One with him as the Lord, with Ashi, and their princes and princesses.

Finally we go outside to the hill under the same red leafed tree, where we find them old, and grey, holding out their hands for lady bugs.

Myth: Fast-tailed black girls. Fact: Issa Lie

It’s time for another conversation about how black girls are set up to fail from the start. Black girls aren’t allowed to just be, to dance, sing, laugh, play, wear clothes, play dress up, play with makeup, without some raggedy ass adult projecting adultness onto them or falsely assigning promiscuity to them. Black girls can’t seem to be carefree and do anything without it being sexualized. Smiling. Being happy. If a black girl does anything to express joy for being a damn girl, there’s an assignation of a sexual context. Sick ass individuals even do this gross shit to BABIES! I’ve seen the screenshots.

Myth: Fast-tailed black girls: Ask questions. Blow kisses. Wiggle their hips to music. Want to wear their hair down. They’re being grown if they speak up. They’re being fast for laughing and interacting with the world.

Fact: Black girls are sexualized and labeled fresh-tailed, fast, grown, and hot in the ass, in order to groom them for, and condition them to, internalize their sexual abuse. A girl child shouldn’t be running around wearing…cute, frilly, short or tight clothes. Those budding breasts could cause a man to stumble and slip his ashy hand down a girl’s shirt, even though it is he who is supposed to pluck HIS eye out of it should cause him to sin. The onus is placed on black girls to absolve uncle Otis and his leaky dick, so he can keep attending the family cookouts and tell the girls, including the teenagers how “thick” they are and what he would do to them if they weren’t related and so mama can pretend to not to know that her crusty ass bf, Donquavius Marshawn Hall, III, “Don Don” or “Lil D” as he’s known on the streets, is sneaking his predatory ass into her daughter’s room at night after he’s finished with mama. When she does “find out”, because her daughter gets pregnant or tests positive for an STD/STI, mama can accuse her daughter of trying to steal her man and have a perfectly clear conscience while doing so, while refusing to hold accountable the male she chose to take up with, and Quavi’s mom can declare with absolute certainty, “#notmyson”. Stop worshipping black dick, ANY dick really, and protect your daughters. Protect black girls! Fast-tailed black girls don’t exist. What the fuck is wrong with y'all?

Womp Woooomp

I’m honestly sad about the fact that Ashi couldn’t get a chance to actually explore life. She was there to serve a purpose for Jack. She helped the plot along (from trying to kill him to breaking free from her brainwash,  to helping him out on his journey, to falling in love with him just to be taken over by Aku and then freed again….just to die). She was never able to fully see what life had to offer and I think that’s my biggest disappointment with the finale.

Jack was able to get back to the past. He was able to see his family again and save the world from Aku and be the hero. Ashi on the other hand lost her six sisters and her mother and her power from her father (who albeit was Aku) and all she gets is death (which to me really sucks). She was a fun character and it was nice to see her progress and grow but it really sucks that she’s dead (just to help serve as storyline). So I think I will miss her the most, but ya know 

he’s back to the past so that matters…

and he’s what? Samurai Jack

anonymous asked:

You know what the biggest tip off for me was that Jack and Ashi were going to be a thing? There face profiles are like puzzle pieces that fit together. His forehead protrudes slightly and leads right into his nose while Ashi's Jaw and nose protrude out past her forehead. Look when they get up in each other's faces when they're in the belly of the beast and he has the beard pointing down and her hair is sticking up. It's some yin-yang stuff going on right there.

Boy oh boy anon am I ever glad you brought this up! I apologize in advance, for I have a lot/too much to say so be prepared and please be patient with me!


This stuck out to me quite a bit in episode four as they were actually being forced to spend time with each other. I’m stuck on a mobile, but I’m sure we all remember when they were arguing and their faces got close to each other. They literally fit into each other like a puzzle piece just like yin and yang. Not to mention, as you also pointed out, the way they wear their hair also goes along with that. Jack used to have a beard and wore his hair down, while Ashi had worn her hair up. Later, we see Jack (unfortunately) lose his beard and he starts to wear his hair up again while Ashi is wearing her hair down. Let’s also not forget Jack’s gi is white whereas Ashi’s… um, burnt flesh was black. Literally their whole appearances contrast each other which, as you said, is some yin and yang shit going on.

BUT WAIT- THERE’S MORE!

When you think about it, just about everything they do is some sort of a parallel to each other. For starters, the reason why the two exist at all are for opposite reasons. Jack was born to continue the emperor’s bloodline which includes to complete the occasional task of defeating Aku until his usual inevitable reappearance. Ashi was born to do the exact opposite- to kill whoever fights against the demon she once worshipped, which of course means Jack. We have seen both characters go grow up in their respective environments. Despite being royalty, Jack had a good ‘normal’ upbringing. He had loving parents who treated him like a normal child and supported him. Ashi, on the other hand, had an abusive upbringing. Her mother was unsupportive and literally does not give a damn about the lives of her daughters. However, none of these stay perfectly in place. As seen in episode three of season five, Jack’s playtime is interrupted by several assassins looking to kill his father. Of course, his father stands up for himself and his family and fights. Jack rushes away from the safety of his mother’s arms to take a peek at the action, only to see nothing more but miserable violence followed by his face being splattered in one of the assassin’s blood therefore giving the poor boy a glimpse of the darkness the world holds. Later, as his father is cleaning him up, his father is giving him words of wisdom and comfort like any good parent would. Ashi, unfortunately, wasn’t this lucky. As seen in the first episode of season five, her mother doesn’t give her or her six sisters a normal upbringing. They’re forced to learn how to fight in a dark, depressing environment. Eventually, ‘Mother Dearest’ brings out a very large and brutish enemy to force her daughters to fight. Of course, they try but are too small and weak to do any damage. At one point, Ashi rushes away from the fight to get a glimpse of the outside world. It is then she sees the warmth and beauty of the world. For once in her miserable childhood, Ashi gets to see the light the world holds at times and she smiles. However, that doesn’t last long. The High Priestess coaxes her back out only to mercilessly grab her by the throat and fling her back into battle. Jack’s childhood was full of light and happiness except for the one unfortunate incident where he saw how messed up and cruel the world can be meanwhile, Ashi’s childhood was full of darkness and misery except for the one time she saw how beautiful and bright the world can be.

Hell, for those who remember Jack’s training montage in the very first episode, compare it to Ashi’s. Jack got to see the world and meet knew people and got to experience so much, whereas Ashi was trapped inside during most of her life and never got to know anything different.

For those who say “Jack and Ashi shouldn’t be together because Jack acts like an adult whereas Ashi acts like a child” there is a reason for this. Literally the short blurb I said above gives a lot of explanation. People who see or get to know the world and different people tend to gain a lot of experience and tend to act more mature. People who don’t do those things tend to have an ignorant viewpoint and do tend to act childish. However, have any of you actually noticed that Jack and Ashi have helped each other act like their own actual ages? Literally, throughout the course of the episodes Jack has slowly started to begin looking and acting like the 25 year old man he is. Ashi’s presence and companionship has helped him regain his youth. (For fucks’s sake Ashi helps Jack’s hallucinations decrease/go away). Jack does a similar thing for Ashi. Jack has pushed her into the right direction for her to understand things more on her own. Ashi has become much more mature than when Jack was forced to be with her in episode four. Thanks to that, she now actually acts like a real 18-21 year old (or however fucking old she is) adult. Ashi would have never made it this far without Jack and Jack wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for Ashi. Why is that? Because they are yin and yang! They are the missing puzzle piece to each other. They literally complete each other.

“BUT THERE WASN’T ENOUGH BUILDUP!”

It’s a ten episode continuation of a storyline that hasn’t been touched in 13 years, which by the way, was SUPPOSED to have a total of 13 episodes but Adult Swim was a greedy bastard, so we can only have ten. When you have a 13 episode plot planned out but are only given ten episodes, that’s not an easy squeeze. Approximately, he had to squeeze in about an extra 60 minutes worth of whatever was going to happen in the last three-ish episodes? (Tbh, episodes five-to-seven seemed just as rushed as episode eight but no one has complained about that.) So what can he really do? Drop the romance he has wanted to do for a really long time? Pfft, I wouldn’t want to do that! My guy, if I would make my intentional ship happen no matter what had to take in order for it to happen.

Also, about the amount of buildup, there was quite a bit:

- The buck and doe kissing
- Jack carrying Ashi bridal style in episode four
- “What did you expect, a hug and a kiss?”
- Witty/playful banter between the two
- The ladybug scene (although this can be debatable)
- The sea serpent scene (very Disney, lol)
- “Uh, I like your hair…. and your dress!”
- The way Jack held Ashi when he saw she passed out.
- The way Ashi looked at Jack when she regained consciousness.
- “Jack, you got your sword! And a little shave and a haircut…”
- The VAs teasing it on Twitter
- The entire (fairly obvious??) yin and yang point I made above
- All of episode eight LEADING UP to the kiss

Let’s also not forget that a lot of time goes by in these episodes and that it’s up to us, the viewers, to fill in the blanks ourselves. Of course as they’re traveling they’re going to grow closer! That’s just a thing that happens.

“EPISODE EIGHT WAS POINTLESS FILLER!”

…And? Literally every show I have seen NO MATTER THE LENGTH has at least ONE. Also, that argument isn’t completely true either. What if I told you that perhaps their relationship is important to the plot? I don’t know about you, but them developing a romantic relationship will deeply effect how Jack will feel about completing his mission. Ashi being this important in his life will effect and possibly reshape his goals. If that isn’t something any of you deem important to the plot, then I am at a loss of what to tell you at this point.

Jack and Ashi not only complete each other, but they make each other genuinely happy in a way that the two of them have either had very little experience with or no experience at all. They both understand the mental baggage the other carries and support each other. They are both consenting adults with an age gap AT LARGEST seven years apart (physical age and mental age are both things that go together and are hardly separate unless there’s some elaborate fantasy-novelesque reasoning for it) so it’s not like either of them are so out of loop to know what they’re doing. They both obviously care about each other, saved each others lives, and see each other as an equal. They capture just about all the aspects of what makes a healthy relationship (love, respect, trust, loyalty, etc.) and, again, they have been through so much both on their own and together. Don’t you think they deserve to be happy?

Anyway, this is just my “two cents” on the issue (although more like 50 bucks holy fuck do you see all this shit I wrote???)

I’M SO SORRY ANON THIS PROBABLY DROVE YOU CRAZY TO READ THROUGH!!❤️❤️❤️

(Also, psst @to-my-ovaries and @silentserenityy I think you guys might want to see this lmao)
