So, you're offering me your services to help me in my quest to destroy Wander?

— Sir Brad Starlight

While trying to reunite both halves of a sword, Lord Hater runs into Sir Brad Starlight, who is attempting to do the same. Their rivalry over this is soon interrupted by Wander who's playing Hide and Seek, so the two work together positively and negatively to see who can capture him.

Episode Summary

I'll call my new planet whatever I want! I'll call my new planet whatever I want!


This article, transcript, or section is incomplete and needs to be completed. Any user is obliged to do so.

At the Lost Temple of Tagathoria, Lord Hater seeks the light half of the Sword of Synergy, which he plans to combine with the dark half he stole from the Warrior Monks of Malakar. However, when he approaches the place where the half should be, he finds that Sir Brad Starlight has stolen the light half of the sword and the two duel it out. Wander comes in and says he is playing hide-and-go-seek with Sylvia and invites them to play as well. Hater and Brad are surprised that the both of them see Wander as a common enemy, since Wander destroyed Brad's wedding and thwarted dozens of Hater's plans, one of which also happens to include his wedding to Sylvia in disguise. Hater reluctantly offers a partnership with Brad to destroy Wander since they share a common enemy. However, they soon find themselves to be playing hide and seek much like Wander wanted them to do.

Quotes

Hater: Here, follow me.

Brad: Great idea. The scout goes first, the leader takes up the rear.

Hater: (stops short) What? No, I'm the leader! That's why I'm in the front! Leading.
Lord Hater: Hey, if we're doing traps, I should totally be the one in charge. I'm, like, the best at traps.

Brad Starlight: Fine. Set your own snare. We'll see who snares Wander first. It shall be me to snare him. I shall be the snare-master!

Lord Hater: STOP SAYING SNARE!!
(Starlight is roped to a tree in drag while Hater is also dressed in drag.)

Lord Hater: THIS IS THE EXACT SAME PLAN!

Brad Starlight: It certainly is not. My high cheekbones make me a much more effective lure. Also, I'm a redhead.
Wander: Even though this may be the end, I'm just so happy the last thing I get to see is good and evil putting aside their differences to work together.
Hater: Hold on! If anything, I converted you to the side of evil!

Brad: Please! I demurred for the sake of compromise, but I am clearly the dominant force in this partnership!
Hater:Are you kiddin' me?! Look at him! He's a good guy! A helpful, friendly good guy that you're helping me destroy for the forces of evil!
Brad: Nuh-uh! I'm the hero! And heroes fight bad guys, and kiss pretty ladies!
Hater: Ugh! Working with you was a big mistake. Give me the sword! I'll destroy him myself!
Brad: No! I want to do it!
(They both fight over the sword.)
Wander: Aw, even when you guys fight, it's clear you make a really good team.

Brad and Hater: We do not!

Background Information

Trivia

  • Sylvia counts to 5,000,000 while Wander plays "hide-and-seek". This amounts to roughly 1,388 hours, or 57 days of counting by Earth standards.

Continuity

  • Brad calls back to the events of "The Hero", saying Wander ruined his chances to marry Princess Demurra. Also, Lord Hater calls back to the events of "The Date", where Wander supposedly "ruins his wedding" and references Sylvia's Lynn disguise.

Errors

  • Brad states that Wander ruined his wedding, but it was actually Demurra who handled him.
    • Moreover, both he and Wander ruined Demurra's wedding with Drakor.
  • The stitches Brad shows on his cape disappear in the following scene.

Allusions

  • Star Wars - The two halves to the Sword of Synergy bear similarities to the lightsabers from the Star Wars franchise. Even Hater and Starlight's duel is similar to the final battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
  • He Man and the Masters of the Universe/Blackstar - The Sword of Synergy being a two-part weapon fought over by good and evil, its halves divided between the two forces, gives it similarity to both the PowerStar sword from the series Blackstar, as well as the original concept for the Power Sword from the Masters of the Universe franchise. Brad Starlight and Lord Hater joining forces to destroy Wander resembles a similar situation in the He Man mini-comics where He Man and Skeletor joined forces against a common foe (Trapjaw) by uniting their halves of the Power Sword against him. (The fact that Hater resembles Skeletor not withstanding.)
