The Good: The episode did very well at pushing the story line along. I thought it was pretty cool how the blades came to be created. I thought the Mumm-Ra vs Lion-O fight wasn't as one sided anymore. Mumm-Ra for the past while has been going through exactly what his 80's incarnation faced and that was being a major chump. It was just sad to see Mumm-Ra get trounced throughout the series and his lackeys end up doing better. Seeing him with the Sword of Plun-Darr seemed to finally make things more even. Pumyra isn't a jerk anymore by the end of the episode which is good. It is safe to say she is now a full team member and I am happy at that. The dialogue was good, the effects were awesome as usual and the story is back on track. So far, no disappointment.
The Bad: While it was cool to see the swords were created, I felt like the episode spent too much time on it. Also, Pumyra is bi-polar. She is mean the first time we see her (understandable), mean yet much nicer to Lion-O the next episode then back to angry, I hate your guts at Lion-O. So I'm glad at the end of it they seemed to move past that.
Overall: Good episode. It pushed the story line. Mumm-Ra obtaining the sword will hopefully balance out future fights with them instead of him jobbing so often and even doing it in places that upped his strength (Astral Plane, his ship, The Black Pyramid). Outside of those places the fights seemed more balanced like at the ToO or in today's episode. If they can nail this the series is even more golden.
