And now we come to an episode with a major character moment and a major revelation.
So Bender's mortal now, since no backup of his programming exists. Of course, why they can't just MAKE one, I don't know.
The major twist comes at the end when we find out that Hermes is the one who approved Bender on the day he was built. I appreciate what they try and do here, but I have a little trouble with one thing. Hermes is Jamaican, mon! What would have brought him to work in Mexico? Can't help but wonder if they'll revisit this at some point?
The character moments are nice, but the Sith-al War had some great moments, too. Supreme Diggity!
Rick has been needing a big moment like that for quite awhile now, good for him. This is by far the most graphic human on human violence episode thus far, no? Little tiny and the machete to the head were both pretty brutal.
