    The Venture Bros. ‘Red Means Stop’ Recap

    March 22nd, 2016

    The Venture Bros. 'Red Means Stop' Episode

    The season six finale of the Venture Bros, “Red Means Stop,” starts off with what looks like a chained-up man waking up in a filthy room. As the shot pans out, it becomes a clear reference to the first “Saw” movie. Another chained man stirs and they both start screaming about how they want pants. That’s not their biggest concern, though. The room also has a pile of dead bodies.

    With that weird scene ended, we see 21 and the Monarch talking about how the Guild is being sequestered. With Dr. Mrs. the Monarch not around, the Monarch plans to gather information about the Venture’s next arch, Red Death.

    At the park, Colonel Hunter Gathers is sitting on a bench. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch comes up and they begin planning to have the OSI and Guild work together to take down Blue Morpho. For added security Brock is also there. After the deal is made, a confused Phantom Limb shows up to start negotiations.

    Back at the “Saw” room, the men argue over the lengths of their chains. When one of them goes to break the chain with a pipe, the other gets his finger smashed. This leads to a “pull my finger” moment. The injured man assures the other one it’s just not a gag, but when he fixes the jammed finger, the true meaning of the phrase rears its smelly head. At this point, we still have no idea what these men have to do with anything.

    The Venture Bros. 'Red Means Stop' Episode

    The Monarch goes in disguise as a dad to a playground. He sits down next to Red Death, a Red Skull looking villain with no skin. As he tries to make conversation, Red Death points out his daughter, a little skinless girl with pigtails. However, he knows exactly who the Monarch is. He even gives him praise for turning Rusty into a marionette in season four’s “Self Medication.” Red Death also warns him that it’s important to separate work and home life, something the Monarch fails at miserably. Back at his house, he tells 21 about his meeting and how Red Death is “the sweetest man in the world” and a “treasure.”

    At the Ventech Tower, poor Uncle Hatred is STILL on the mend from all of his misfortunes this season. As the Guild walks into the building, he tries to stop them with a flashlight. The OSI soon follows, with Brock and Shore Leave. As everyone tries to get the sting operation going, Rusty hits on Dr. Mrs. Monarch yet again and Hunter pulls a gun on Phantom Limb. Watch and Ward have the honor of impersonating Hank and Dean. Their clothes are awful and full of fringe. Hank has an idea, though. He’s going to dress them as “classic Hank and Dean.” Shore Leave is Brock’s decoy, complete with the mullet. Billy, Pete, and Rusty are getting ready to hide out at Billy’s mom’s house for the duration.

    In the “Saw” room, a chicken dinner is on the floor. The first man points out that it even has the “little hats on the chicken legs.” The second man tells him that the food is poisoned. How does he know that? Well, we find out that he’s been there for weeks now. He’s been eating the butts of the dead people in the room. Of course, the first man freaks out and starts screaming about being trapped in there with a “butt eater.”


    Hank, Dean, and Shore Leave are out on the town for the night. Shore Leave wants to take the boys to the Limelight, which of course, is closed. He then mentions taking them to CBGB’s, he’s going to be in for another disappointment. Meanwhile the Red Death flies over them on a fiery horse. Shore Leave laments that even when he’s Brock, he still wants to be Brock. Hank consoles him, telling him that how he felt his whole life.

    Meanwhile, 21 and the Monarch are disguised as Guild agents. They go to Red Death’s house and convince his wife to take the kid and go to her mother’s house. Without batting an eye, she agrees.

    At Billy’s mom’s we get another horrifying flashback into Rusty’s childhood. The Action Man is playing with little Rusty. Instead of pulling the Action Man’s finger, he pulls a grenade pin. Scamp 3 goes running towards the grenade. Rusty dives to ground to protect his dog, only to be impaled by the gag “Bang!” stick that came out of the grenade. Back in the present, Colonel Gentleman starts calling Action Man a savage baby killer. Action Man argues that he killed a baby werewolf or maybe it was an ocelot.

    Back at Ventech Tower, the Guild and OSI agents are in position. There’s two agents who are getting chummy on a rooftop with holding sniper rifles. Red Death flies onto the scene and we see more decoys on the Venture balcony. Hunter is Rusty and they also decide to use Phineas Phage as H.E.L.P.eR.’s decoy. Instead of using fake rounds, as per the sting operation’s rules, Red Death is using live ammo. Everyone scatters in shock.

    The Venture Bros. 'Red Means Stop' Episode

    The bickering continues at the “Saw” room. The men realize they are both villains. One of them is Maestro-Wave, a villain with a microwave type power. He’s the butt eater. The new guy is the Termite. When it’s suggested that the Termite can just eat his way out, he pulls a Tigerriffic and confesses he doesn’t have his powers without his helmet.

    21 and the Monarch are back at the Morpho cave. They call Red Death, who is still at the Venture’s. Using a voice changer, the Monarch informs him that he has his family. This prompts Red Death into Liam Neeson’s “Taken” speech. It’s so damn menacing that 21 and the Monarch completely freak out and even apologize to him.

    Colonel Gentleman starts talking about Blue Morpho. Jonas was heartbroken when he died. Even Kano cried. This confuses Rusty and Billy points out that Jonas’ Kano and Morpho’s Kano were the same person. Gentleman them not to believe everything he reads about the old adventures, expect for when it’s about him kicking ass, because he really did kick ass.

    The Venture Bros. 'Red Means Stop' Episode

    Red Death pays 21 and the Monarch a visit in the Morpho cave. He knew exactly where they were, even down to what pods they were hiding in. He’s scaring the crap out of both of them. The Monarch tells him to just call his mother in law, his family is safe there. Quickly switching back to loving husband and father, he talks to his wife. The Monarch then explains that he hates Rusty and must arch him. Red Death tries to give him advice like “rules helps us hate.” He also tells the Monarch to just kill the Venture family and get on with his life. That’s what he did with his arch, he crushed his skull and burned his house down.

    At the Venture’s there’s a pool party going on. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch isn’t joining in on the fun, though. She tells Rusty that she will find and kill Morpho herself. When Rusty sees the party he wonders what the hell is happening but then offers to make drinks (oh god no) and jumps in the pool.

    The Venture Bros. 'Red Means Stop' Episode

    Here’s where we finally find out what’s up with the “Saw” subplot. 21 really hasn’t been murdering all of the villains like everyone thought. He’s been hiding them in the unfinished first floor bathroom in the Monarch’s house. He doesn’t seem to be checking on them, since he’s shocked most of them are dead with their butts eaten.

    After the credits, we see the Guild sniper talking to his OSI pal on the roof. They’re sad they won’t be working together anymore. It’s revealed that the OSI agent is a woman and the Guild agent has a plastic skull. So maybe it will be easy for these crazy kids to find each other again.

    Other things:

  • While this is the season finale, there are still plenty of loose ends that need to be tied up. Hopefully, we will get an hour special soon-ish.
  • The Monarch pees in the sink while 21 complains he’s late for supper.
  • Brock and Shore Leave arguing about rock, paper, scissors.
  • Phantom Limb leaving the pool party volleyball game in a huff, with Hank taking his place.

    The Venture Bros. ‘A Party for Tarzan’ Recap

    March 16th, 2016

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'A Party for Tarzan'

    In this week’s episode, “A Party for Tarzan,” we get a crazy opening that starts with Dr. Mrs. the Monarch sniping Rusty from Wide Wale’s balcony. This goes right into 21 narrating the story about how he became a Monarch henchman. Way back in season one, we briefly heard that he was kidnapped as a teen by henchmen. Gary Fisher, as he was known as back then, was mistakenly taken. The real target was Senator Nighthorse Campbell. The Monarch was convinced that somehow a senator would help him make the “Venture” name illegal. Of course, his men kidnap a kid instead. The scene quickly switches to present day 21 and the Monarch who reluctantly plans to “thwart” Dr. Heinie, a low level villain who is on par with him.

    Next, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch narrates a Guild meeting where we learn a ton of backstory about the original Blue Morpho. He was the “junkyard dog of the Ventures.” In 1973, Dr. Z thought he was having an affair with tennis star, Billie Jean King. However, it turns out that it was the Blue Morpho the entire time. Dr. Z still doesn’t know how Morpho pulled off the stunt, but he asks everyone just to chill out since it was the ‘70s. Dr. Z also says the Sovereign took out Morpho in 1976.This of course, is the same year that Vendata was built, adding more credibility that Morpho was turned into the former Guild councilman.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'A Party for Tarzan'

    At Ventech Tower, Rusty is giving a speech on how many times the family as been attacked lately. He then begins to tell a story about how he went to a party with Billy and Pete. At the party, he sees Christopher Lambert of “Highlander” fame and talks to him. He agrees to go to Rusty’s lunar eclipse party.

    At the Morpho cave, the Monarch puts on his old costume in order to pay Dr. Heinie a visit. 21 is left to deal with the next Venture arch, Wandering Spider. He lures the spider into helping him load a couch into van, much like Buffalo Bill in “Silence of the Lambs.” He then knocks him out by shooting him with a blue mist.

    Rusty and Dean are at the tailor, Enzo’s, shop. Rusty asks for a speedsuit called “the patriarch.” Since the suit is a “bitch” to make, Enzo tries to get Rusty to settle for something else. Once he leaves the room, Rusty spies Morpho’s suit hanging up. Rusty being Rusty, he steals it.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'A Party for Tarzan'

    On the subway, the Monarch narrates the beginning of how the rating system in the Guild came to be. Years ago, a villain named Turnbuckle tried to kidnap a young Rusty at the Venture Compound. The Action Man put a stop to it by pistol whipping the hell out of him. When the villain revealed he was still conscious, Action Man shot him. This led to the ranking system where villains and their arches would be paired up by how important or well equip they were. The Monarch remembers when he had a full crew, and the Cocoon. He was a level 9. Now being that he’s riding the subway and is down to one henchman, he’s a 4.

    At the Monarch house, Dr. Z and Dr. Mrs the Monarch are examining a gun with the Venture logo on it. He mentions that Rusty’s arches are being killed off one by one. They try to reach the Wandering Spider, but get his voice mail. Meanwhile, 21 as Kano has Spider in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, which is where the Monarch’s plane went down when he was a kid. Kano wakes up Wandering Spider and tells him to leave a message to the Guild saying he was kidnapped by Blue Morpho.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'A Party for Tarzan'

    Pete and Billy did a pretty crappy job decorating for the party. Rusty calls it a “baby shower for a teen mom.” However, they convince Rusty that the hats and masks they made are necessary for the eclipse. Rusty, being a total idiot, somehow believes them. Once the lamest party ever starts, Billy is completely drunk early on. Hank’s playing bartender and Rusty asks him for a Ruddy Bottom. The drink sounds disgusting. It mixes rum, tomato juice, and grenadine. Hank confesses he can only make drinks that have the ingredients in their name, like gin and tonic. Rusty teaches him to make it, and promptly spills it all over his fancy Morpho suit. He then goes outside to watch the eclipse.

    The Monarch is arching Dr. Heinie and has him tied down with a hemorrhoid laser pointed at him. He’s pissed he can’t get a perfect angle to take a selfie. Kano looks like he’s burying Spider’s metal arms. Meanwhile, members of the Guild are on Wide Wale’s balcony. Wale thinks Rusty’s drink is blood and he urges her to shoot him. She hesitates and Wale digs into her. When she finally does shoot, she regrets it.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'A Party for Tarzan'

    We see the bullet hit him, of course. Since he was wearing Morpho’s suit it’s bulletproof and he’s not dead. The Monarch narrates the scene and claims he returned the suit to Enzo.

    After the credits, Dr. Mrs the Monarch spots Christopher Lambert trying to get into Ventech Tower. At last he came, even if he can’t get in.

    More things:

  • 24 is one of the henchmen who kidnaps Gary. And Monarch and company are wearing their costumes from the pilot episode.
  • This episode is chock full of flashbacks, callbacks, and “Casino” style narrations.
  • Rusty’s next arch after Wandering Spider is Mr. Energy, who apparently electrocuted himself while watering his lawn.
  • 21’s story about the video game Berserk is completely true.
  • Did Kano really kill Wandering Spider? We don’t actually see his corpse being buried.
  • Battleaxe isn’t dead, just banged up.

    The Venture Bros. ‘It Happening One Night’ Recap

    March 8th, 2016

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 - It Happening One Night

    “It Happening One Night” starts with a “Legion of Doom” type structure rising out of the river. Inside there are 10 super villains that are unfamiliar. As an announcer goes around introducing everyone, the camera settles on Wes Warhammer. He announces that they should get Venture.

    At the penthouse, Brock is staring at a TV that’s showing the outside of Ventech Tower, much like Andy Warhol’s eight hour long movie “Empire.” There’s also a brightly colored Box of Doom! and a not so cryptic message about how the family will met their doom later that night. The Ventures really don’t care, especially Hank, since he’s finally going on his date with Sirena.

    The Guild is is discussing who Blue Morpho might be. Phantom Limb accuses Dr. Mrs. the Monarch of being as obsessed with Rusty as her husband is, since she is certain it’s him in that blue costume. Meanwhile, the Monarch is sneaking out of the Morpho cave as the meeting ends. In order to get 21 out without being noticed, the Monarch distracts her. It’s a pretty brave move to use secret passages while your wife is teleconferencing with the people who are hunting you down.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 - It Happening One Night

    Hank’s on his date. He’s wearing Michael Jackson’s “Bad” outfit, but he calls it his “good” outfit when Sirena comments on it. In true Venture fashion, we see Dean, Billy, and Pete desperately try to make the date more interesting while in disguises .Pete tries to “rob” them so Hank can come to the rescue. Dean plays the bongos while Hank joins in with his bass. Billy’s in a baby carriage, but we never get to find out why.

    Back at the Venture building, Rusty and a still very banged up Hatred are playing Team Fortress 2. While Brock is trying to get everyone in the panic room, Hatred rats out Hank and Dean. Brock leaves to find the boys and Hatred gets hit with a tranq dart. The guy really can’t catch a break. At the park, Brock runs into Sirena’s bodyguard, the only Wide Wale henchman he left alive a few episodes back. The trade insults. Brock calls him a “water bug” and he retaliates with “Brock’em Sock’em Robots.” Of course, they decide to team up to find the kids.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 - It Happening One Night

    At the Monarch’s place, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch is dressed-up in a farm girl costume, complete with a blonde wig. The Monarch goes along with a Southern accent. Instead of their usual role play antics, the Monarch shoots her right in the ass with a dart. He then goes into the cave to find the Doom Factory. As he and 21 hop on the Morpho scooters, he can’t seem to control it and it just goes around in circles.

    We see Hank and Sirena getting accosted by photographers who, of course are just really Dean and Pete. They make their way into a Ninja themed cafe. Their waiter is no other than a costume-less Brown Widow. And Sirena used to date him.

    The Doom Factory villains make their way inside the Venture penthouse. They really don’t arch in the traditional sense. Instead, they redecorated and the place looks like it was taken over by Warhol himself. Villains are just hanging out on the couch with mounds of pills. Rusty asks where Hank is and he’s asked if Hank is the name of a pill. When Rusty finally makes his way into the panic room, Warhammer is already there. He starts filming Rusty, telling him to “be himself.” When asked to take off his shirt, there’s a problem. He’s wearing a onesie.

    Brock and Wide Wale’s henchman are now sitting in the Charger, and the pissing contest continues. He gets in some good ones like calling Brock’s hair a “Tennessee Tophat.” They pull up to the restaurant and Rocco takes some more jabs, this time about Brock’s unloaded gun. In the restaurant, Hank gets paranoid and accuses Sirena of using him. She reminds him that they ran into “four different albinos,” but she still likes him and they leave together.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 - It Happening One Night

    Kano and Blue Morpho are scootering through the sewer. When they reach the end, Morpho falls off and in the water. Just then, the Doom Factory comes rising up. They break inside and Blue Morpho reveals he has a ton of explosives. He promises to “fuck up his lair” and tapes the bombs everywhere. As they go to run out, Morpho’s coat gets caught in the factory. The bombs petered out, but he’s taken away by the flying factory.

    At the penthouse, the arch party is still in full swing. Rusty’s really getting into being filmed and his rolling around on a bed in his underwear. The villains actually start doing something villainous and steal his inventions. Someone mentions that “Hank” is now the name of a pill.

    Brock and the bodyguard try to raid the Ninja restaurant. Brown Widow shows up in his costume and impresses his fellow waiters. Hank’s not there and to make matters worse, Brock accidentally punches Pete with all his strength. Meanwhile Hank and Sirena are near the water. She jumps in and he soon follows. She mentions that she must be in water every six hours due to her “condition.” They kiss and float to the bottom of the river.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 - It Happening One Night

    The stealing continues and Rusty’s feelings are hurt. He genuinely thought that Warhammer felt he was special. It’s okay, though, because Warhammer gives him a gold watch that lets him talk to god. It turns out that it’s just Rusty communicator watch. The Doom Factory flies up and Warhammer gets in. As it’s leaving, it finally does explode when the trigger falls out of Morpho’s pocket. He’s safe on the balcony and he’s happy with the beauty of the explosion.

    After the credits, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch is waking up. The Monarch is on the floor wearing his robe. She immediately thinks Morpho attacked both of them. She contacts Phantom Limb and he promises to help her catch the mysterious Morpho.

    Some other things:

  • So many Andy Warhol references. From the villains themselves to Warhammer’s speech about using the watch to talk to god.
  • Hank using the old trick of everyone dressing up as different characters was endearing and awkward in the only way he can be.
  • Hank’s line to Sirena “you had me at crazy.”
  • Kano and Blue Morpho just shouting “Dude!” repeatedly at each other as he flies away on the Doom Factory.

    The Venture Bros. ‘Tanks for Nuthin’ Recap

    March 1st, 2016

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    “Tanks for Nuthin” starts with the Monarch and his wife fighting over the arching rights of Dr. Venture. As she’s getting dressed, she reminds him he’s only a level four and Venture is a ten. He needs to hire more henchmen, build a new cocoon and get out there “with his henchman.” After she storms out, the Monarch goes down in the Morpho cave.

    Then we find Brock waking up in Warriana’s bedroom with a whip in his ass, as he tries to sneak out, he makes up some excuses about not want to disturb her. Uninterested, she tells him he’s welcome to a cup of coffee and maybe he should make it to go.

    Back at the Venture building, Guild Strangers are collecting the body of Harageutan as Dr. Mrs the Monarch is interrogating Rusty. She’s convinced Brock killed Harageutan. She asks for the video surveillance tapes. Rusty says no. Brock walks past Rusty who asks why he’s walking funny and that they don’t need another olean fiasco. Watch and Ward are poking fun at everything as Dean runs into Dr. Mrs. the Monarch with a hand full of flowers, (meant for uncle Hatred) she smack the out of his hand.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    We move to Billy having a god gas meltdown. (Hasselhoff style) It’s being watched by Pete,Colonel Gentleman, Action Man and Billys mom. Billy staggers into the room pleading with Pete to take the video down, but Pete says it has over 80,000 views. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch knocks on the door and Billy’s mom says there’s a Nazi here to see him.

    Over to the Newark mayor’s office, a janitor is vacuuming and hears a ringing, he finds a phone in a bust. He answers and we see 21 on the other end hanging up. He’s looking through the remaining Venture arches. The Monarch wants to continue to snuff them out. He even mentions killing Manolo, when 21 states he’s not a murderer, he changes the subject to getting the Blue Morpho car out of impound.

    The Guild is reviewing the death of Harageutan. Dr.Mrs.the Monarch tells the Council Billy stated that Blue Morpho was his savior. However, Phantom Limb says Blue Morpho has been dead for decades. Wide Wale is certain he can get the video tapes through bugs he put in the Venture building. First though, she needs to inform Harageutan’s wife of his death. She goes to a bar owned by Harageutan. His wife, Battleaxe, begins to sob over missing his smelly breath and abusive nature. She also wants to know the whereabouts of the Harangeutank. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch promises she will get it back.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    We find Dean at college taking a test under a Nietzsche quoting professor. At the end of class, professor stops Dean to tell him he’s a very bright student, even though his test was crap. He’s worried Dean may very well be distracted by problems outside of class and should avoid such distractions to study. (especially tonight) Dean thanks him, when he leaves the classroom, the professor opens a secret room holding his tank. He is Rusty’s new arch Think Tank!

    Back at the bar, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch tells Battleaxe she has found the tank, and all she needs to do is pay the outstanding parking tickets. Battleaxe is once again is sobbing her eyes out. So a “concerned” Dr. Mrs. the Monarch offers to accompany her to pick it up. As Battleaxe goes to “put on her face,” Dr. Mrs. the Monarch receives the video of Harangeutan’s murder from Wide Wale. At the impound yard, Blue Morpho darts the guard as Kano unlocks the holding area. They run through the impound yard searching for the car. The guard wakes up, only to be hit with an axe. The ladies find the Harangeutank, which is a gaudy Winnebago. Battleaxe opens the door, whiskey and beer bottles fall out, as does a horrible stench. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch spots Blue Morpho across the lot and she goes after him.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    Think Tank shows up at the Venture’s front door. He scans Brock and decides to bypass him, scaling the wall directly to Rusty. He tells Rusty he’s not there to kill him but to enjoy the arch by matching wits with him. He breaks out a chess board and Rusty confesses he’s more of a Parcheesi man. Brock makes his way into the room and finds Think Tank. Rusty is on the phone with the Guild bitching about his new arch. Watch and Ward are on the other end screwing with him. Brock is in full battle with Think Tank. They go back and forth mocking each other when Think Tank blasts Brock out of the building. Flying around the NYC skyline, Warriana catches a wayward Brock. She tries to smooth over the morning coffee encounter saying she’s no good with pillow talk. After hearing about Think Tank, she quickly turns around back to the Venture’s.

    Back at the impound garage, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch is on the heels of Blue Morpho just as he makes it to the car. She brandishes her gun demanding that he turn himself in. Battleaxe is waiting in the tank and opens Dr. Mrs. the Monarch’s laptop. She sees the death of her beloved Harangeutan by the hand of “Rusty.” She speeds off as Blue Morpho hits a button and turns the car into the Morpho Jet, flying out and away from his wife. She runs to her limo demanding Watch and Ward to follow that blue plane. She finds it’s headed straight for the Venture building as Blue Morpho requested to Kano, so he can take a dump in the pool.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    Meanwhile, Brock and Warriana are wrapping up the fight with Think Tank. Rusty’s disgusted after being the phone and having the call get dropped. He sees the Morpho Jet heading towards him as he goes to get Brock. Dr. Mrs. the Monarch is at the bottom of the tower and sees the Morpho Jet fly over the building. Battleaxe crashes into the building and straight into Think Tank. That building is a magnet for villain deaths.

    After the credits, we see that Dr. Mrs.the Monarch is home. The Monarch is shaking, scared stiff under a blanket. However, she’s impressed about how the house is coming along and says she’s sorry. She knows who the real enemy is.

    The Venture Bros. Season 6 'Tanks for Nuthin'

    Some other things:

  • Hank popping up everywhere as a waiter or delivery boy.
  • The Captain was great on that CNN type show trying to undo the god gas damage. Of course, that was Warriana’s alter ego as the host.
  • Yes, the Monarch really did poop in the Venture pool.
  • Once again, Rusty and Blue Morpho are confusing everyone.

    The Venture Bros. ‘Rapacity in Blue’ Recap

    February 22nd, 2016

    The Venture Bros. Rapacity in Blue Recap

    “Rapacity in Blue” starts with Rusty being woken up by a hologram of Jonas Jr. It reminds him that the Science Now convention is days away. Rusty needs to find something to present. This leads him to Pete and Billy. Rusty first tries to just rename a Segway into the “zip arounder.” We also find out that he’s been banned from the convention for the ill-fated Boom Broom from season three.

    At the Monarch’s house, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch is talking to herself since her husband and 21 are in the secret cave. The Monarch wants to call the place “the eggsack.” Of course, 21 thinks it’s a horrible idea. He eventually convinces the Monarch that by using the stuff in the cave, they can arch Venture’s enemies without anyone knowing. Their plan is almost discovered by Dr. Mrs. the Monarch, but the two close the passageway to the cave and cover up their tracks by doing an awkward tango.

    Back at the Venture’s Pete and Billy take turns showing Rusty some inventions. Pete has a silent washing machine and a way to create free electricity that’s been compared to slave labor. Billy has Prometheus gas which can regrow a liver. Unfortunately, it keeps growing livers and lab mice are exploding because of it. His second idea is a “god gas” that causes religious visions. It doesn’t take long for them to realize it’s basically mind control gas.

    Henchman 21 finds something in the cave that the Monarch should view alone. The scene is one big reference to “Empire Strikes Back.” 21 is wearing “geek robes” and serves as Yoda. 24 even chimes in for a minute as the ghost of Obi Wan. In the cave, we see a video of Jonas with Blue Morpho. They’re playing it up for the camera and joking about whether Morpho is a hero or villain. Two girls enter the room and it’s clear there is going to be some key party type action. The scene ends with Jonas’ “Go Team Venture!”

    The Venture Bros. Rapacity in Blue Recap

    Next we see Pete, Billy, and Dean experimenting on mice with the god gas. Throughout the rest of the episode, the mice develop their own society which includes a golden idol with Billy’s head and setting themselves on fire.

    Meanwhile Brock is giving Hank relationship advice for his date with Wide Wale’s daughter. Hatred’s voice over the com interrupts them with a “code green.” It seems Hatred has been taken hostage by Harangeutan, a villain that is more like a huge annoying humanoid than ape.

    Outside the Monarch’s, he’s on the phone with his wife who is asking about Guild forms. She wants to present his case to get his arching level back, but he can’t be bothered by the paperwork. Manolo tells the Monarch he doesn’t care about his problems, but he just takes the indifference as advice. Next, he’s back in the cave, preparing to become Blue Morpho. It cuts to them arguing about directions in the car. They mark Harangeutan as their next mark. 21 tells Monarch he needs to shave the goatee and he does.

    Billy, Pete, and Rusty argue over what to do with the god gas. Pete made a gun for dispensing it, Rusty wants to test it on humans, and Billy doesn’t think it’s ready for anything. Meanwhile outside, Brock is fighting Harangeutan. Warriana shows up and takes the villain down with one shot. Brock’s not happy and Hatred’s in the hospital. Rusty decides to test the gas on Harangeutan. But, the gun explodes and gas fills the room. Harangeutan sees Rusty and Billy as devils. Billy sees Rusty as he was in his boy adventurer days. Brock runs out of the building with Rusty following him. Blue Morpho and Kano show up and save Billy from the villain. 21/Kano kicks him down a pit.

    The Venture Bros. Rapacity in Blue Recap

    Brock is seen in another building using a doorman as a door knocker. He’s at Warriana’s apartment and freaking out from the gas. After a weird seduction, she takes him inside. Back at the Venture building, Billy tells Rusty that his secret is safe with him. Billy completely thinks the Monarch was Rusty.

    After the credits, We find out that the Blue Morpho’s car was towed since there was only a few old coins in the costume’s pockets. 21 and the Monarch walk into the house to find Dr. Mrs. the Monarch home early. It was supposed to be their date night and she’s pissed the Monarch was gone. They cover up their outing by saying they went on date night instead.

    Some other things:

  • Pete heats a burrito in an autoclave.
  • That awkward moment when Brock’s teaching Hank how to kiss and leans in “like a cobra.”
  • The “Super Friends” style intro of Blue Morpho and “not quite Asian” Kano. Also, how 21’s alterations to the costumes were featured.
  • Pete doing nothing to help during the gas explosion and just hides.
  • Blue Morpho calling everyone “citizen.”
  • While it hasn’t been confirmed, this episode certainly gives a lot of credit to the theory that Rusty and the Monarch are related. Perhaps they are half brothers.
