Season 3, Episode 17, “All In” REVIEW: Amphibia
“It doesn’t matter who we were, Sash; what matters is who we are today.”
Review of Television
Anne’s days at school with Sasha and Marcy are flashed back in “All In.” For perpetrating a prank, the three are summoned to the Principal’s office. Sasha and Marcy are given warnings, but Anne is given an essay on who she wants to be. Anne was a pushover as usual, meekly agreeing with the prank since her pals wanted her to. Principal Murphy reminds Anne that she must choose the proper option rather than the easy one while assigning the assignment. Frobo frees everyone from the prison in the present, and they all fall to Earth as Andrias invades. Some of Andrias’ armies are recognized by Hop Pop as the huge herons that ate Sprig and Polly’s parents. The gang reunites with Anne’s parents and Mr. X, who have all been plotting Anne’s return and invasion. Anne and Sasha decide to headquarter their activities at their school. Meanwhile, Marcy is unaware that she is imprisoned in the Core while King Aldrich leads her about the fantasy realm she has always fantasized about. Andrias reflects on his bond with Marcy as the Core congratulates him on his redemption. The Plantars are unable to confront the herons until they attempt to devour Anne’s parents, at which point they go into protective mode. Sasha, Grime, Yunan, and Olivia assault the palace as Marcy goes further into her beautiful world with abstractions of her friends.
The Plantars use the Plantar Family Hunting Dance, AKA the one devised by Leaf in Andrias’ childhood, to knock Andrias’ collars off the herons and hypnotize them. Olivia and Yunan distract the robots on board the castle-ship so Sasha and Grime can face the Core. Andrias challenges Anne to a single fight, promising to stop the invasion if she succeeds. Anne rises to the occasion, confronting the King in front of the whole globe. Grime rushes at the Core to gain time for Sasha, but this backfires when Darcy chops his arm off. When Sasha and Anne declare they want anything Marcy desires in the Core, Marcy understands nothing is true. She refuses to enter the Core and rejects the dream world. Mr. X decodes Leaf’s letter with his spy glasses after Sprig dumps it on Earth. Sprig takes one of the herons to Andrias and reads him the letter, finally reaching him. Darcy is aware of this development, just as Sasha is. As Grime kicks her weapon to her, Sasha just needs this little diversion. She stands up and cuts the Core out of Marcy’s skull. Andrias surrenders the struggle, enabling Anne to rip through his circuits and expose that, after all these years, he’s mainly robotic. He orders Anne to rescue Marcy, and she returns to the palace in search of her companions. While Anne’s parents remain and pledge to inform the girls’ parents that they are safe, the team chooses to return to Amphibia and settle things out. All seems to be well in Amphibia, as Lady Olivia declares the major triumph and Anne assures Sprig that they can handle whatever change comes their way. However, in the distance, an ominous crimson moon rushes towards Amphibia.
What a thrilling episode! I had no clue the episode this week would be so lengthy or that it would air so soon after the series finale. It makes sense; 18 episodes with two hour-long episodes at the end equals the same amount of time as 20 half-hour episodes. I like how they finish the narrative with Anne’s school recollections. It shows how much she’s progressed as a character, and I like learning more about her backstory in this program. I can relate to Anne’s struggle in “All In,” since I’ve fought my whole life to say no or stand up for myself. This episode also provides a lot of background for the Plantar family, as it is ultimately shown that Leaf is their ancestor. We also find out what happened to Sprig and Polly’s parents, something the program has only hinted at or skirted around before.
This is when one of my favorite aspects of the program, and notably “All In,” comes into play: the relationships. Amphibia does such an excellent job of creating connections between its core and minor characters that I believe other programs may learn from it. I was almost in tears thinking about how far the Boonchuys, Plantars, and their supporters had come. Even a character with little screen time, such as Leaf, may be an important and fulfilling part of this massive fight. Sprig’s reading of Leaf’s letter flowed into her writing it, which made me tear up again. Leaf appeared in just one prior episode, “The Core and the King,” but her message to her pal and witnessing her grow up and have a family was really amazing. Amphibia and the message of this last episode are inspired by Leaf’s remarks to Andrias: to live life freely, trusting others and loving them without remorse. This, along with Anne’s words towards the conclusion, reminded me of Harry Potter telling Voldemort that he pities him. Andrias has shut off whatever love or pleasure he may have experienced in life, just as he did in that situation. His father’s oppressive control over him as a child is an explanation, not an excuse or justification, for his behavior. But I appreciate that he is aware of it. After all that has happened, the program offers no excuses for him as he exclaims that Leaf’s message is too late. I suspected there was something soft in Andrias that he was hiding from the beginning, and it’s nice not just to be correct but also to have it handled so effectively. The notion of transition is another major theme in “All In.” From blockbusters like Frozen II and Toy Story 4 to Tangled: The Series, Disney has been exploring this issue a lot recently. Marcy’s separation from her friends and Anne’s separation from the Plantars is heartbreaking. However, Anne’s argument that neither distance nor time can break these relationships was touching.
This episode’s designs are stunning. The vision of King Aldrich with the Core’s eyes is one I never knew I needed to see. This apparition hanging over Andrias encouragingly or roaring at Marcy in wrath, I’m not sure which was more scary. Although it’s a short little scene, I loved seeing how the friendship between Andrias and Marcy grew, no doubt reminding him of Leaf and Barrel. His eagerness to preserve his last companion revealed itself in strange and dangerous ways, such as turning Marcy into Darcy, the Core host body. It’s beyond creepy. There are also some stunning views and transitions, such as when Anne charges at Andrias and then changes to Sasha slicing at Darcy. Everything is being thrown against the wall by the animators, and I’m loving it. What are our plans for the next week? I have other series to watch, such as Young Justice and The Owl House, but Amphibia is in a class by itself, both artistically and philosophically. Although I couldn’t find a suitable photograph to show it, “All In” is heavily influenced by anime. Andrias’ armor design, particularly the noises it produces, reminded me of Evangelion. I wouldn’t be surprised if shows like Attack on Titan or Ghost in the Shell influenced the team.
“All In” is a fantastic episode that sets the tone for the rest of the season. I’m hoping to see more of Teri and Dr. Jan next week, since the feeling of community and camaraderie among the characters is one of the reasons I like this show. In the build-up to what should be an emotional conclusion, the script, voice acting, and animation are flawless.
