Cards on the table: this episode is roughly 50% plot and 50% stinky feet jokes. Which, fun fact, none of us actually remembered until we were about five minutes into the episode!
And the weirdest thing about that is, it's still just as poignant as we thought it was back then. It gives us a ton to think about as far as Aelita's relationship with her father and her memories of her past, a big moment of tension with her and Jeremie, and one of the greatest moments of emotional maturity Odd has ever exhibited. But also there's foot stink. Just all of it, all the jokes.
(But don't worry too much about that - we're still making our OWN jokes! Including one that made Ben literally spit water all over his room.)
