Goliath is dead-set on vengeance against the Hunters. He’s about to have an unexpected ally in that quest: Demona. But is even her help enough against these determined foes? What will be the price for their attack on the Hunters? It may be too rich for the clan’s blood when the blood of others flows.

Miss last week’s? Read The Hunter’s Moon part 2 episode review.

Spoilers are in the 20/20 moments. Info from Ask Greg is in the According to Greg bits.

That. Thing. Is. YUGE.

The Hunters’ airship is prowling between buildings. Somehow air traffic control has allowed this giant craft to trundle between skyscrapers, far too low to be safe. Isn’t the city restricted airspace? Or is it because this is a vertical takeoff and landing craft that it’s okay?

Inside, the Hunters confirm that yes, they do want to attract attention. Mission accomplished, because Brooklyn, Lexington, and Goliath have seen them.

We rollin’. Haters gonna hate.

Goliath is after vengeance, so he breaks into the ship. Lex and Brooklyn think this is a little bit much. They should really get reinforcements.

In the hall, they run into Demona. Yep, Demona.

She’s just as surprised to see the clan as they are to see her.

They have a bit of a scuffle, but she assures them that she is here for revenge as well. It’s like a giant revenge party! Everybody has grudges against everybody else.

The Hunters show up, but there are only two. They manage to take the gargoyles down. Then they put them in a cage. Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am. They would kill the gargoyles, but the Hunters feel that their third member should be present.

Thus they commit a classic villain blunder of leaving their prey unattended. You should always, always kill the hero when you have the opportunity. If you don’t, they will get loose. I guarantee it.

Demona says that the family these people belong to destroyed the last gargoyle clan a thousand years ago in Scotland. She’s not sure why they keep hunting her. She’s so unaware of how her evil has affected other people. At the moment, Demona hates them more than she hates Goliath’s clan. Demona wants to take out the Hunters so they do not kill more gargoyles.

But…if they killed Goliath’s clan, she wouldn’t be heartbroken. (Excluding Angela, though.)

Goliath shares her desire for revenge, and not just a little of it. He wants full-on.

She approves, but she thinks anger is clouding his judgment. She quotes Oberon there. Right now, since the element of surprise is gone, they should escape. But the bars are electrified.

Electro bars, ever a favorite. Xanatos’s beam bars were the best, though. Nobody shorted them out!

Lexington finds the wiring underneath the floor. Demona decides they can divert the current, and gives her armband to the cause. It works.

They break out, and make a run for it. But the Hunters intercept them. Four gargoyles vs two humans leads to the predictable outcomes of the humans getting tossed.

Ready to catch some air, guys?

Goliath wants the leader who almost killed Angela, not these two. Goliath, if you have an enemy at your mercy, kill them if you want revenge.

Turns out that these two are Robyn and Jon. So that’s why we have the new characters! Apparently they’ve let the gargoyles go for reasons.

Plot twist!

Gargoyles leave the ship. Demona congratulates G on his desire for revenge. That should be a tip for him to reevaluate his plan.

He lets her go, because she helped, and because he has other business. Okay, that’s dumb. You should slap her back in the Labyrinth.

The Hunters’ leader arrives. He’s enraged to learn the gargoyles have escaped. Ah, but it’s all right. Robyn knows where Demona is, and they’re about to follow the clan back to their lair.

The leader is still pissed. He pulls off his mask and reveals himself as Jason. Well, that was unexpected. Now we have an easy solution to the Elisa/Jason/Goliath triangle.

Hunter!Jason is way more buff than Cop!Jason.

Jon says that he thinks the gargoyles only attacked because the Hunters first attacked Angela. Jason doesn’t care.

They follow the gargs back to the clock tower. An argument ensues: Robyn thinks there might be a bunch of them there, but Jon thinks there are only 6, the same number of gargoyles Xanatos brought over with the castle from Scotland.

Jon suggests they should wait until morning and then destroy the gargoyles. Jason and Robyn are in a yank to get this over, though. Robyn shows evidence of Demona turning into Dominique.

They’ve really done their detective work if they’ve figured this out. How could they have found her?

This means the gargoyles might be able to turn into humans too, eliminating the “shatter them while they’re stone” option.

Jon doesn’t like the idea of blowing up the place. People could get hurt.

20/20 moment: It’s ironic that Jon is the one who cares about people. Then again, the Quarrymen are his idea of protecting humanity…

But Jason is okay with it. He’s done with this garg crap.

Seriously, look at the size of that thing!

Just as they’re about to blow the place, Elisa goes in. It’s too late, though: Robyn has hit the missile-launch button.

The missiles are massive too.

The clock tower goes out with a bang.

The Hunters really think they’re gonna get away with this? The authorities just have to track the radar and cameras…


Final Thoughts

Whoa there, son! Did they just blow up the clock tower? With the gargoyles inside? We’ve got one more ep left, and they’ve got some major wrapping up to do. Way to up the ante, though. These Hunters mean business in a way few other villains in the Garg-verse have.

Jon is with the media, and Robyn is with Nightstone. I have a feeling they’ll put those connections to good use.

Then there’s Demona’s plot. Why does it depend on the Hunter’s Moon?

Tune in Tuesday for the start of the last ep. It’s been a long trip, but we’re almost at the end. And what a twist of an ending it’ll be!
