I loved this episode. Now Hank thinks he's invulnerable, the Monarch out-thought Dean almost immediately, and 21 & 24 had some more adventures. Can't wait to possibly see interaction between Jonas and The Monarch, but I have to think that JJ will *own* him.
Henchman 24: "Who the hell are you?" Dermott: "I'm Hank's friend." Henchman 24: "Yeah, I doubt that." Dermott: "Would you believe I'm... Brock Samson's long lost son?" Henchman 24: "If that were true, I don't think I would have caught you this easily." Dermott: "I couldn't run because I had a lighter up my ass." Henchman 24: "Ok, NOW I believe you're Hank's friend."

I may be imagining it where it doesn't exist but I wonder if they're trying to sneak a Wilhelm scream into every episode this season.
21 dusting off his Viceroy persona for the letter to Dean was callback of the week.
Actually, 21, 24 and Monarch all subscribing to Dean's paper was hilarious.
Dr. Dugong was a great character - too bad he had to die in the crash opener.
It was funny how the Moppets - sorry, Pupa Twins - repeatedly asked Dr. Mrs. The Monarch point blank what Monarch's issue was with Dr. Venture and she failed to answer EVERY time, to the point where even they said "c'mon" - before getting sidetracked by that fascinating discussion about what her underwear looked like.
After failing to recruit Dr. Venture as Jonas Jr.'s arch, it's nice to see SOMEBODY got the gig. I wonder when that'll get followed up. For that matter, whatever happened to the Order of the Triad's arch?
I wasn't paying attention and didn't see the Brock and Dr. Venture cameo appearances until the rerun. Dr. Venture sleeping with his vacuum cleaner makes all the sense in the world.

I'm really interested to see where Monarch arching Jonas goes. I mean, Jonas is so much more effective than Rusty: smarter, better team builder, more focussed, and so on. But the thing is, Monarch is maybe the only supervillain with any fire left in him, we've seen him kick some serious ass in the past, and, maybe most important, Jonas doesn't have Brock Samson in his corner. Monarch's men have repeatedly gone up against Brock, some of them even surviving the experience. You've got to think they'll be pretty well prepared for whatever Jonas has up his sleave.
They really wound up a bunch of potentially compelling plot points over the summer. Maybe having those play out would have been a nice idea? I think it'll take a lot for me to stop watching this show, but I'm nervous about this season.
