Samurai Jack: Spoilers
« on: March 12, 2017, 07:55:33 AM »

The animation is a thing of wonder! Those shots of a silhouette of Jack in the rain, great stuff! Nice seeing the 3D animation blend fluidly with the traditional 2D.

Aku has a cult that births disciples to honor and serve him.
Jack has guns and a sick motorcycle. He has not aged as a side effect of time displacement.
He's haunted by vision of his family berating him for abandoning them.

Yeah.

Jack's losing it as he's seeing visions of his father and all the innocent people he hasn't been able to save because he hasn't stopped Aku.

Jack lost his sword and Aku doesn't know. And Jack, taking out the Sammy Davis Jr. Bot's phone, wants to keep it that way because...well, Aku can probably decide to just find Jack and kill him now.

The daughters of Aku are trained sisters (even see their births) since birth to kill Jack believing he's a force of evil.

Jack with no sword sucks for him. I'd be lost if that happened. :(

Also, wonder how the daughters plan to res Aku...

Aku can spy on Jack anytime he wants, so he should be able to figure it out on his own.  Though right now it's unclear where Aku even is, since the cult keeps talking about him like he's been away for while. 

I'm also wondering since there's been a 50-year time-skip if we're going to see an older crotchety Scotsman at all.

I think I saw the Scotsman in a trailer. He was old and in a wheelchair, I think?

And maybe Aku is just busy now. I mean, wasn't he expanding his empire out of earth at one point?

When in doubt...google Samurai Jack wiki.

Here's what I found in the Aku section:

Hungry for more power, Aku established the Earth as a space-faring world, opening his ports to surrounding worlds in order to plunder and conquer worlds beyond as well. The influx of aliens, ranging from enslaved species to rough immigrants, have made the Earth a hodge-podge of a dystopian society primarily run by tyrants and gangs. The few bastions of peace and hope typically remain out of Aku's wide field of vision.

Okay, so yeah. He has expanded his reach off-world.

Maybe the masked rider is just the representation of Aku's tyranny over the past, present, and future. Or just some mook like the slavers from the very first episode.

And I can't wait to see what the Daughters of Aku can do.

It is and Hulu hates anyone who isn't American, apparently.
