Gargoyles: Grief – Episode Review

Disney Gargoyles logo with Goliath grief

There is only one word for this episode: WRONG. I think I said the same thing about the last episode the Pack was in, Upgrade. Seems to be a theme with them.This episode takes the cake, though – and it takes Anubis, God of Death. We’re talking about the Egyptian god, not the one from Stephen King’s work or Stargate SG-1. He who controls Anubis controls life. And death. Xanatos doesn’t care about that, he simply wants immortality. The Pack is along to see his will is done by the Emir, a man skilled in the ways of Egyptian lore and magic. But when you play God, you often summon the Devil.

The Battle of Britain is about to break out, and it’s up to a handful of pilots and two gargoyles to defend London from the Nazi horde. Are they enough, or will their efforts only get them killed?
