Gargoyles: Metamorphosis – Episode Review

Change is good, so They say. Derek Maza agrees – at the moment. Life is good as a Xanatos Enterprises employee. But after the radical life change he’s about to experience in this episode, his opinion might change just as much.

Elisa will have to face his change as well. She’s reaping a crop from the seeds she planted in the beginning of Her Brother’s Keeper.

This episode grates on me. It’s like a puzzle piece that almost fits but doesn’t. Or like a Sliders parallel dimension that’s almost identical to the true Gargoyles-verse, but the characters are just a bit darker. They feel…off. Through the episode review, I’ll do my best to grease the gears and file the edges. It might take some mental acrobatics, but I’m a pro at rationalization/justification.
