Spirited Away is the nineteenth and twentieth episode of E-10: Horizons.
Hex goes after the Ergaleío of Despair, a weapon that can raise spirits from the dead to which the user can use to control them. But in order to activate it, he must request assistance from Ethan's most powerful transformation, Ghoulseye. Will E-10 and co. be able to make their last stand against Hex once and for all?
[The scene opened in the deep vacuum of space, with many distant stars and planets in view. The camera panned down, revealing a large white planet, then proceeded to zoom in. The camera sped along a plane of white sand, then panned up to see a large white plateau with a city built on top of it. The scene cut to the tallest building in the city, then zoomed into it. Inside, the room was aligned with several holographic computers and a large monitor at the front. Several red gremlin-like aliens wearing jumpsuits, which were known as Planchakule, were running around, checking the holographic computers and the monitor. A green light shot into the room, and a Planchakule materialized, wearing a brown aviator's hat, brown boots and a black jumpsuit with a white stripe. The Planchakule had silver and orange goggles wrapped around their eyes.]
Planchakule Scientist: Supreme Intelligence A’taenda! [Salutes]
A’taenda: At ease. So, I was told something urgent came up.
Planchakule Scientist: Ah, yes. You see, we just finally found the whereabouts of the Omnitrix, where it is, who it’s with, things like that.
A’taenda: WHAT?! And I’m just hearing about this now! Put it up on the monitor!
[The Planchakule scientists set up the monitor and the Omnitrix symbol appeared on the screen.]
Planchakule Scientist: Huh, that’s odd. It appears we’re tracing some sort of unknown amount of energy coming out of the Omnitrix.
[The Omnitrix symbol started flashing yellow. A’taenda took off its goggles to reveal golden eyes and long eyelashes. A’taenda rubbed their fingers against their eyebrows.]
A’taenda: Great, this is the first time we’ve gotten ahold of the Omnitrix after its initial launch, and after a year of radio silence, there’s something’s wrong. Of course!
Planchakule Scientist: What should we do about this, Supreme Intelligence?
A’taenda: Get me a ship, and program the coordinates of the Omnitrix. It’s about time I meet the person who’s been responsible for keeping my Omnitrix all this time.
[The scene immediately cut to black as loud snoring could be heard. The song ended.]
14 HOURS AGO...
[The camera panned to the right as it the setting changed to Ethan’s bedroom, where he was sleeping in a weird position and drooling everywhere on his bed. His phone began vibrating on the desk by his bed, and Ethan groggily got up and turned over to see it was his alarm. He turned it off, then took a look at his phone to check the time. The date on the phone was April 26. Ethan shut his eyes and smiled to himself. As Ethan spoke, everything went completely black]
Ethan: Heh, It’s almost time…
[The setting took place outside the Horizon campus. Ethan exited one of the buildings with his hands in his pockets. Ethan began to walk to where he usually sat outside, when he stopped to see Hannibal and Nikki sitting under the umbrellas as they were gazing into each other’s eyes and holding hands. Nikki was laughing at one of Hannibal’s jokes.]
Terence: Looks like they finally tied the knot.
[Ethan screamed and jumped back as he noticed Terence was standing right next to him.]
Ethan: AH! How did you get here?
Terence: I just arrived, same as you. Anyways, looks like after spending most of their entire lives together, Hannibal finally had the courage to tell Nikki how he feels. And it looks like Nikki was ready to start a relationship as well. About time.
Ethan: At least they didn’t spend two whole years being caught up in some love triangle online.
Terence: Did that actually happen to you?
Ethan: I don’t want to talk about it.
Nikki: Hey, guys!
[Nikki was signaling Ethan and Terence to come over. They smirked as they walked over to the two. The song shifted]
Hannibal: We got big news!
Nikki: [Grabs Hannibal’s hand] We finally got together.
Ethan: I noticed.
Terence: About time you two finally hit it off! Now, Ethan, I want my 50 bucks back.
Terence: We made a bet about who would be the one to confess their feelings to whom first. I bet on Nikki…
Ethan: ...and I bet on Hannibal. In our defense, you knew about the bet too, Hannibal.
Hannibal: No, I didn’t!
Nikki: I can’t believe you two made a bet off our relationship.
Ethan: We’re sorry, we just thought it would fun to gamble on who would be the one to confess in the relationship.
Terence: It worked out anyway, didn’t it? You confessed to her, and now you two are a happy couple.
Ethan: Hey, if it makes you feel any better, if I happen to get into a relationship with a close friend of mine, you two can make a bet off of that.
[Hannibal, Terence and Nikki looked away, whistling innocently. Ethan raised his eyebrow as he acted with confusion.]
Nikki: Anyway, I can’t believe the school year’s already over.
Hannibal: Yeah, a lot has happened this year.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: The first scene showcased the SACT and the group charging inside Gi-Kwan's base. We cut to Nikki, Alice and Heatblast fighting Ernesto Andromeda and the Gifted. We cut to Nikki dragging Hannibal out of the scene while Four Arms fought the Robots from Dimension 12.]
Terence: We fought terrorists...
Ethan: Robots… all sorts of stuff like that…
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: A strapped up Hannibal looked down to see Gi-Kwan was standing below him with an evil smirk.]
Hannibal: Not to mention, I actually got kidnapped by a terrorist.
Nikki: Oh relax, we got you back in one piece, didn’t we?
Ethan: We also went on many adventures together.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Ethan, Alice, Hannibal and Nikki wearing gear as they reached towards a restaurant filled with Zombozo, the Circus Freaks, and the entire town zombified. We cut to XLR8 defeating Epoch as his body glew white.]
Ethan: Like when the city was hypnotized by a deranged group of circus freaks.
Nikki: Or like when we travelled across time to save Hannibal’s life from a time bounty hunter.
Hannibal: That’s nuts.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Kraab cornering Ethan by a tree as he aimed his pincer at him. Then Alice and Terence ran in firing paint at Kraab, which created a short circuit.]
Ethan: Oh, or like the time that killer robotoid crab hunted us down at Splattown!
Hannibal: Which, thanks to you, got us banned.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: Ethan, Alice and Terence were eventually shot from behind with paint. They turned around to notice it was the Gaia group who shot them.]
Ethan: Shut up! You know it was because of Gaia shooting us down.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: King Nidarian jumped down to shore, who stood before Ethan and co.]
Hannibal: Oh yeah, remember that time those ocean people invaded the beach and tried to take over the country?
Ethan: Yeah, I had back sores for weeks after that.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Terence, Nikki and Ethan climbing up Mount Seratu. We cut to Terence taking a picture which the white light blinded the screen.]
Terence: Or what about when we hiked all the way up Mount Serautu to grab a picture of Silene periodicum.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Jonah Melville and his hunters arriving inside a cave where the Father, Mother and Baby Landageddeti, as well as Ethan, Terence and Nikki were hanging at.]
Nikki: Yeah, until those hunters arrived to try and take the Landageddeti.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: Diamondhead freed the child Langageddeti from its net, and hugged him.]
Ethan: And Diamondhead shut ‘em down! Haha, yeah!
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: The EXPO host gave Hannibal a trophy as the crowd cheered for him.]
Hannibal: We did a lot of growing this year. I won the Horizon Robotics Expo!
Ethan: Oh yeah, what did they ever do with that?
[The flashback ended]
Hannibal: Well, the developers are still looking into marketing and patenting. I should hear something from them by the end of the summer.
Terence: I know I didn’t do much this year.
Nikki: Oh, please! You got second place for the Capture Contest.
Terence: I should’ve gotten first…
Nikki: Well if it wasn’t for Hex being the man behind the sorority, Alice and I could’ve gotten our grades up.
Hannibal: Don’t worry, babe. There’s always next year.
Ethan: Don’t even get me started with Hex.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Hex creating a powder of red dust that went flying at four Arms and knocked him unconscious. We cut to Ghoulseye charging towards Hex at the campus.]
Ethan: He’s been trying to steal my watch all this time.
Nikki: And he wasn’t the only one.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We cut to Echo Echo fighting Kraab in the forest. We cut to even Lieutenant Steel using tools to try and rip off the Omnitrix.]
[The flashback scenes ended and Ethan kicked back from his seat.]
Ethan: Well, it doesn’t matter. No matter who tries to take the watch away from me, I’m going to kick their butts before they can even try! [Looks at the watch] Besides, it’s not like this thing can come off anyway.
[Ethan sat back down, reclined and staring at the ground.]
[The flashback scenes continued as Ethan reminisced with the others.]
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: The scene opened to Ethan waking up to see Alice in front of him, as she checked to see if he was okay. We cut to Ethan, Terence and Nikki having a conversation by a campire. Then we cut to Gi'Kwan's destroyed lair outside, as Hannibal shakes Ethan's hand, forgiving him for lying. We last cut to Alice jumping onto Ethan as she hugged him tight.]
Ethan: Besides, if it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t have had a place to call my own or had the friends I was always searching for. I always felt lonely, and coming to Horizons really changed everything. It’s made me become a better person than I thought I ever could be...
[The flashback ended. Ethan sat up as he had a moment of realization.]
Ethan: Hey, wait a minute. Where is Alice anyway? Shouldn’t she been reminiscing the great times we’ve had with us?
Nikki: Oh, she’s back at the library, studying for the exams coming up next week.
Ethan: [Stands up] AH! I forgot she was supposed to start tutoring me a few minutes ago!
[Ethan stood up and hurried to grab his stuff.]
Nikki: You better hurry, you know how she’s like when you make her wait.
Ethan: Yeah, I know! I’ll see you later!
[As Ethan ran off, Terence smirked and turned to the couple.]
Terence: So is our bet still on?
Hannibal: Oh yeah!
Nikki: It’s on.
[The song ended. Meanwhile, inside the library, Alice was sitting at one of the study areas, flipping through one of her books. Behind her, a green slimy creature was slithering up toward her. Alice heard the noise and turned to it, revealing the creature to be Goop as he took a humanoid form.]
Goop: Hey, Alice.
[Alice slightly jumped and smiled.]
[Goop tapped the Omnitrix symbol, became covered in green orbs, and transformed back into Ethan.]
Ethan: Huh, I thought that would’ve worked.
Alice: It would have if I wasn’t expecting you.
Ethan: [Sits down] Right, that’s kinda bad on my part… Sorry for being late.
Alice: It’s fine, I was just going over my notes to see what I needed to study for.
Ethan: You know you just missed a moment with the group. We were just reminiscing our time together and how much has changed since then.
Alice: Oh really?
Ethan: Yeah, if only you were there, it would’ve made the moment more special. Since ya know, all of us would’ve been together and everything...
Alice: Well, I’ve been busy studying. Ever since I’ve gotten into this major, I’ve been working extra hard to get to where I want to be.
[FLASHBACK MONTAGE: We flashback to a confused Alice walking with Alexia, Cassie and May as they discussed what they were doing. We cut to Alice's mother throwing a Younger Alice's art piece on the ground as she cried. We cut to present day where Ethan, Alice, Hannibal, Terence and Nikki were having a laughful discussion at their usual spot. We cut to Alice trying to report a story with the Hot Dog stand. We cut to Alice was discussing what to do with her life in front of Ethan, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki, who smiled and accepted her.]
Alice: When I first came to Horizon, I didn’t even know where I was going. All I wanted do was to get away from my mother and finally live the life I wanted to live. But now, with the love and support from my friends, I got the push I really needed to finally discover what I really want to be. And now I’m going to stick with the friends who’ve pushed me this far and become the best writer I can be!
[The flashback montage ended.]
Ethan: Good, because it wouldn’t be fun at Horizons without you.
[The two paused and blushed for a moment, and then shook their heads.]
Alice: Thanks. Umm… Oh! So, I’ve already signed up for next semester’s classes.
Ethan: Oh, that’s great.
Alice: Yeah! You’ve signed up for yours too, haven’t you?
Ethan: ...Yeah, I need to get work on that… [Scratches the back of his head.]
Alice: It’s just, after going through everything I did at Horizons, I really felt like I’ve changed as a person. Like, I finally found myself, ya know?
Ethan: Yeah, I get what ya mean. Truth is, Horizons changed me too, but it’s not just that. Ever since I found… the watch… all these endless possibilities have come to me. Thanks to this, I got the chance I was waiting for to finally go to an art school, to finally build up my confidence, to make friends, and be somewhere that I can call my own. Wow, I feel like I’m repeating myself…
Alice: Well, I’m assuming you just had this conversation with everyone else.
Ethan: Yeah. It’s funny, after this week, the school year would be over, and I would’ve had this watch for about one year now.
Alice: Really? That’s great!
Ethan: Yeah! Wait, great that the year is ending or great at the watch part?
Alice: The watch.
Ethan: Right. [Looks at the Omnitrix] If I hadn’t found this, I don’t know what would’ve happened to me. I probably would’ve stayed where I was, and never made it to my dream.
Alice: Oh, I’m sure you would have! It just wouldn’t have happened the same way. Actually, I think if you weren’t here, I would never have figured myself out, and I would’ve ended up going back to my mother.
Alice: I think you were destined to have that watch, and I think in some way we were destined to meet. I mean, we both had a hard time making friends and we struggled to even get to where we are now, we changed each other for the better. What I’m saying is, I’m glad I’ve met you, Ethan. So...
[She stood up and bowed to him.]
Alice: Thank you for helping me change my life.
[Ethan paused and blushed for a moment.]
Ethan: Whoa, you… don’t have to do that…
[Alice sat back down.]
Alice: Sorry, it’s a force of habit…
[Ethan looked to the side and thought of something to cheer her up.]
Ethan: [Smirks] Is it because you’re Asian?
Alice: Shut up, you racist! I’m only 1/16, and you can’t even notice! Anyway, let’s get to studying.
[We zoom out and away from Ethan and Alice as they began to study. The song ended. The scene shifted to the two leaving the library with their stuff as the sun was starting to set.]
Hannibal: Hey, guys!
[Ethan and Alice saw Hannibal and Terence waving at them. Ethan and Alice approached them.]
Alice: Hey, where’s Nikki?
Terence: She had somewhere she needed to be.
Hannibal: I miss her already… Anyway, Terence and I thought about grabbing a bite to eat. You guys wanna come with?
Alice: Yeah, sure!
Ethan: Sounds great.
[The four began walking down the sidewalk, heading for the parking lot.]
Hannibal: Oh, you know what sounds good? That burger place down by Main Street.
Ethan: Aw, man! That place makes the best burgers!
Terence: I could really go for a burger right now.
Alice: That sounds so great.
Hannibal: Yeah, I heard their new Monster Bacon Burger is the best one in town.
[The conversation began to fade as Ethan walked past a figure wearing a brown coat. His shoulder bumped into Ethan’s. Ethan noticed this and turned over to take a look.]
Terence: No way! The Cheddar Onion Slice Me Burger is way better than that.
Hannibal: Oh yeah, prove me wrong.
Alice: Sounds like we’ve got ourselves a bet!
[Ethan’s eyes widened as he saw Hex’s face. The two past each other as the others finished their conversation. Ethan turned back as he shouted with an angry facial expression.]
[The others turned around surprised to hear Ethan shout. Hex threw the trenchcoat off him, as his palms glowed with red energy. The other three gasped.]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES... NEXT!
[Ethan’s eyes widened as he saw Hex’s face. The two past each other as the others finished their conversation. Ethan turned back as he shouted with an angry facial expression.]
[The others turned around surprised to hear Ethan shout. Hex threw the trenchcoat off him, as his palms glowed with red energy. The other three gasped.]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NOW!
Hex: My turn!
[Hex launched a wave of water at Ghoulseye. To his surprise, he was hit and went flying toward the ground.]
Hex: Ah, why hello Ethan, and children!
Alice: Hello! We’re not children. We’re in our 20s.
Terence: Actually, I’m still 19, so...
Ethan: Sneaking back into colleges again, are we? You really think we would fall for that for a third time?
Hex: Actually, I wasn’t posing as a teacher this time. But seeing as you saw through my disguise, I have to say, you’ve colored me impressed!
Ethan: Whatever you’re after, whether it’s the watch or whatever magic artifact you have hidden around here, you’re not getting it! It’s Action Time!
[Ethan scrolled through the Omnitrix, as he turned from Goop’s icon to Heatblast to Ghoulseye. Ethan slammed down and he transformed into a bright green light. The light faded and Ethan revealed to have gotten the wrong alien.]
Heatblast: Aw, Heatblast? Did you have to pick now to give me the wrong alien?!
[Hex surrounded Heatblast in a red aura and lifted him in the air.]
Hex: I don’t have time for your childish games today, E-10. While you do have something I need, retrieving it now would be futile without the final piece to my weapon!
[Hex blasted Heatblast into one of the buildings and he fell to the ground.]
Alice: Hey, leave him alone!
[Alice, Hannibal and Terence threw pebbles at Hex. Hex, irritated, launched a small wave of magic, throwing them backwards. Suddenly, Hex heard a roar of fire and turned to the noise.]
Heatblast: Get away from my friends!
[Heatblast was flying toward him like a rocket and raised his fist at him. Hex raised his fist.]
Hex: Orter Sibalitenv!
[Hex waved a red energy blast, and Heatblast was thrown back. Heatblast fell down to the ground and landed on his feet. Heatblast raised his arms and launched fireballs from his hands. Hex created a forcefield and blocked the attack.]
Hex: Really, Wellington? Is that really necessary?
[Heatblast stopped and clenched his fist. Heatblast placed his palms into the ground.]
Hex: Now, if you may excuse me, I have other things I must attend to.
[Hex put his forcefield down and started floating away. To his surprise, a geyser of lava burst from the ground.]
[The lava died down and Hex was revealed to be surrounded in a magic dome. The dome disappeared and Hex fell to the ground, severely damaged. Heatblast flew over to him.]
Heatblast: You're finished, Hex. Come quietly, or I’ll fry you into a baked potato.
[Hex’s grimoire floated above and the pages spun to a specific page.]
Hex: Recovery magic… Sanitatem Corporis!
[A green ray shot from the ground and his whole body began to heal in a bright light. Heatblast blocked himself from the light and turned to see Hex floating back in the air.]
Hex: So long, Wellington! I’ll see you again shortly!
[Hex snapped his fingers and a cloud of red dust appeared. Heatblast began to cough and waved his arms to wipe away the dust. The dust cleared and Hex was nowhere in sight. Heatblast powered down back into Ethan, and he turned to the others as they approached him.]
Ethan: Scatter! Check every glimpse of campus for Hex and see if you can find him! I’m not letting him out of my sight tonight!
[We zoom in towards Ethan’s angered expression as the song ended. The scene shifted to nightfall as Nikki stepped out of her car in the parking lot. She ran over to find the others still searching for him.]
Nikki: Any luck?
Hannibal: Nothing yet.
Terence: I don’t think we’re going to find him with an angry Ethan pacing back and forth.
[They turned to see Ethan constantly hitting the Omnitrix. As nothing happened, he screamed in irritation.]
Hannibal: Man, I haven’t seen Ethan get this angry before. Can’t say I blame him.
Nikki: I mean, he’s been fighting Hex all year, it had to get to him eventually.
Terence: Plus, every time we’ve gotten close to catching him, he always slips away from under our noses. Not to mention there was that one time where Hex kidnapped him and strapped him to a torture table. Man, I don’t wanna know what goes on in Hex’s mind.
[Both Alice and Nikki smacked Terence from the back of the head.]
Alice: I’ll go talk to him.
[Alice walked over to Ethan.]
Alice: Hey, any luck with the watch?
Ethan: No. I’m guessing you haven’t found Hex yet?
Ethan: Ugh, this is stupid! I should’ve gotten Ghoulseye! At least then I would’ve been able to finish him off for good.
Alice: It’s going to be okay, we’ll find him.
Ethan: How? He always manages to slip away! Even if we manage to find him, he’s going to get away again eventually. Besides, none of my aliens but Ghoulseye have been able to defeat him. Ugh! I swear, I’m sick of this thing giving me the wrong alien. What’s the point of having a dial if I’m always going to end up with someone else? I should’ve kept switching until I had finally gotten Ghoulseye.
Alice: And what if you did? Can you really guarantee you would win with Ghoulseye?
Alice: Then stop acting like a child and stop blaming your watch or your transformations for this. It’s like what we talked about, you can’t become too dependent on one particular form. You may not be able to control what alien you want or when, but you can control the outcome of your situation if you just focus. So, why don’t we focus on finding him instead of waiting for the watch to recharge.
[Ethan took a deep breath.]
Ethan: You’re right. I’m sorry for snapping.
Nikki: You know, I just thought of something. Doesn’t Hex have some kind of evil lair hiding somewhere around here?
[We cut to the group arriving inside the library as they walked passed a group of bookshelves.]
Hannibal: Hex had an evil lair at campus?
Nikki: Yeah, when Hex was working as the school’s librarian, he used to keep all his special belongings deep inside some underground basement.
Terence: Why didn’t Hannibal and I know about this?
Nikki: You never asked.
[They arrived to a bookcase standing before them.]
Ethan: Okay, it should be around here somewhere.
[Ethan looked around the shelves as he tried pinpointing which book was the switch.]
Ethan: If I remember correctly... it was... this one!
[Before Ethan grabbed the book, the bookshelf split in two and began opening to a set of stairs below. Ethan turned over to see Alice was holding a book.]
Alice: Guess I got it.
[The five entered downstairs and Nikki turned on the light.]
Ethan: Alright, everyone, look around! Hex should have some kind of magic clue hidden around here.
[The group began searching all over Hex’s basement. Nikki was looking through drawers and Terence searched through the files scattered on Hex’s desk.]
Terence: This place is a pigsty! How is anyone supposed to find something in here?
Ethan: Wait ‘til you see my room.
Terence: Why does that not surprise me?
[Hannibal searched underneath Hex’s desk as Alice was searching through a small bookshelf. Hannibal pulled something out from the desk and found a small box containing files, books and artifacts.]
Hannibal: Hey guys, I think I found something!
[Hannibal sat the box on the desk as the others walked over behind Hannibal to take a closer look. They looked at the objects and sat some aside.]
Nikki: I don’t mean to sound like Captain Obvious, but this must be the place where he kept all his important artifacts and papers.
[Alice held a stack of papers.]
Alice: Hey guys, look! Hex has a checklist of every artifact and spell he was going to go after in the next 5 years. Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D. Wow… It’s like he knew some of his plans were going to fail.
Hannibal: He must’ve had a contingency plan for everything in case one of his plans were to go sideways.
Terence: That’s smart. Never know what’s going to go wrong.
Ethan: Does it say anything about Hex’s current plan?
Alice: It only goes up to the hidden necklace in the library, sorry.
Ethan: Well to be fair, when Hex was here, he wasn’t planning on grabbing the watch or going after me at the time.
Hannibal: But this might say what he’s currently going after. He said he was going after a weapon, didn’t he? I think this might sum it up.
[Hannibal laid a book wide open, and the pages in front of them revealed drawings of three different kinds of weapons. One being a piece of stone with a magic glyph surrounding it, a staff with large engravings, and a sharp sabertooth surrounded in energy.]
Hannibal: The Colossal Stone, The Staff of Vibrius and Agniacius, and the Sabortooth Relic of Imperium. Once these core items are merged together, they can create the weapon that can reshape the world. Those who know of it fear it as the ultimate weapon, The Ergaleío of Despair. Once put together, it can reshape living matter, control the living, but most importantly, be able to summon and manipulate the spirits of the dead.
Terence: So wait, it can summon spirits?
Ethan: Just like how Ghoulseye can summon spiritual weapons. He must be going after something that can double that power.
Hannibal: I’m not done.
[Hannibal turned the page revealing people bowing over the person holding the weapon.]
Hannibal: The one who wields the Ergaleío of Despair will be worshipped like a god. But the ones who defy him will suffer the consequences.
[Hannibal turned the page to reveal a group of souls going flying into the scythe.]
Hannibal: If one defies him, their body will be burned to crisps and their souls will go flying into the weapon, for the ruler to manipulate and control for all their lives.
[Ethan prepared to walk up toward the exit.]
Ethan: We can’t let Hex go after this! C’mon guys, we have to go!
[Hannibal, Terence and Nikki gasped.]
Alice: Wait a minute, Ethan!
Nikki: I think you need to see this!
[Ethan turned back and his eyes widened. The page revealed a figure looking similar to Ghoulseye.]
Terence: Wait, is that… Ghoulseye?!
Hannibal: Before anyone can wield such power, they must be accepted by a Ghoul Overlord, particularly being Sha’Rrow. Sha’Rrow is from an alien race known as a Vapenterisk, they come from the planet Tryelle. They are known to be carefree party animals due to the lack of the rules or government. Sha’Rrow was different, however. Sha’Rrow was originally set on planetary conquest. He would make others do his bidding or they would be sent to a shadow realm for all of eternity. However, once the other Vapenterisks stepped in line, they banished him into an energy core for all of eternity, made up of Angelic Energy.
Ethan: That’s weird.
Hannibal: And in order for an outsider to be granted such power, they must be chosen and accepted in order to wield the Ergaleío of Despair. Once they’re allowed this power, the wielder can do as he wishes, but if refused he will be banished into the weapon for all of eternity.
Ethan: But what does this have to do with Ghoulseye?
Alice: Think of it, Ethan. If Ghoulseye comes from the same planet as Sha’Rrow, he will be able to be grant him that power.
Ethan: Then he has a lot of making up to do if he thinks I’m going to allow him that kind of power.
Terence: Unless he has some kind of plan to make you do it, then I don’t see why any of it is necessary. Plus, you can totally change his mind and trap him inside, then you won’t have to deal with Hex.
Nikki: None of this makes any sense.
Ethan: There’s a bigger picture we’re missing here. Is there anything else inside?
Hannibal: [Turns page] Nothing, it just takes me to another spell.
[Everyone’s phones started going off and they received an Amber Alert on their phones. The Amber Alert said: “Mad Magician attacks Museum Ultima. Subject appears to be a tall male, assuming to be in his mid 30s. The magician is armed and very dangerous. Stay Safe.” Ethan began heading for the stairway.]
Nikki: Ethan, what are you doing? You know he’s going after the Ergaleío of Despair! If he makes you use Ghoulseye, it’s all over!
Ethan: That’s only if he has all the artifacts. Besides, many lives are at stake, if I don’t go, people are going to get hurt.
Alice: Then we’re coming with you.
Terence: Why do you always assume I’m in on the matter?
[Nikki smacked Terence from the back of his head.]
Ethan: This is Hex we’re dealing with.
Hannibal: Yeah, the same Hex we’ve managed to defeat time and time again. Not like anything’s different about this time, except we’ll catch him!
Ethan: You guys really know how to lighten up a situation. [Raises fist] Alright, let’s go!
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES... NEXT!
[Hannibal opened a book and the others glanced beside him to see what was inside.]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NOW!
[Hex was standing before Ethan and a mysterious blue figure while he spoke.]
Hex: The entire world will be at my mercy!
[We opened to the next scene outside Museum Ultima, where police officers and police tape surrounded the entire area. Meanwhile, near the entrance, a group of bushes began moving toward the doors. Hannibal popped his head out of the bush that was nearest to the entrance. He signaled Ethan, Terence, Nikki and Alice as they ran inside. Hannibal made sure everyone went in first before he did, then ran inside. The armed guard turned around thinking he heard something, but shrugged it off. The five ran down the halls as they made their way to a corner, they saw a trail of bloody corpses lying on the floor.]
Nikki: Oh my god…
[Alice turned away to look as tears dropped from her eyes. Nikki was shaking in horror, while Ethan had an angry look on his face as he made a fist. Terence cleared his throat and held onto his neck.]
Terence: I think I’m going to be sick…
[Terence turned over to see Hannibal vomiting on the side of the floor. Ethan began breathing heavily.]
Ethan: Let’s keep moving.
[The five turned to the other direction of the hallway, and made it to a large room where the moonlight from the glass ceiling lit up the entire room. A dinosaur exhibit was destroyed, a glass globe was cut in half, and many other ancient artifacts were destroyed. Dead human and animal bodies were strewn around the room. Hex was surrounded with red energy, as he was floating in the air. He turned to them as the Sabortooth Relic of Imperium was floating near his fingertips.]
Hex: You arrived, just as I expected you would. I guess smartphones really do know how to alert people after all.
[Hex held his phone in the air and placed it back into pocket as he floated to the ground.]
Hex: I give it was only a matter of time until you showed up. Now, there’s something I need you to do for me.
[Hex lifted his arms in the air, and the three objects were surrounded with red energy, as they floated in the air.]
Hannibal: He has all the weapons!
Hex: Unfortunately, I cannot merge the weapons together until a Vapenterisk allows me to wield it. But then I remembered something… You have one in your arsenal.
Ethan: Even if Ghoulseye is a Vapenterisk, do you really think I’m going to allow you that kind of power?
Hex: Oh I think you will!
[Hex raised his arm out and Hannibal, Terence, Nikki and Alice became surrounded in red energy.]
Hannibal: What’s going on?!
Terence: Let go of me!
[They were lifted over to a corner and were trapped together in an energy cage.]
Hex: Clearly you haven’t understood that the more you bring your friends to these fights, the more danger you put them in. For someone who is 21 years old, I thought you would be quite intelligent enough to know that by now. What a shame! Now, transform into your Ghoulseye persona, and grant me the power, or I will turn them into eggs and scramble them for breakfast!
Nikki, Alice: Don’t do it, Ethan!
Terence: Kick his ass!
Hannibal: Come on, man! You got this!
Hex: Zip it!
[A zipper formed around their lips and their mouths were zipped shut.]
Hex: So what’s it going to be?
[Ethan with a terrified look on his face, it suddenly changed as he began to laugh out loud. Hex made a confusion.]
Ethan: Oh, man! I’m sorry, it’s just… do you really think that’s going to work on me? We’ve done this dance before Hex, and it never ends well for you. Do you know how many villains I’ve to face every week who do the same thing? “Oooh, I’m an evil bad guy, and I’m after this rare artifact. You cannot stop me from my never-ending world changing conquest!” You know the more I look at it, my life is like a Sunday morning anime, or maybe even a Saturday morning cartoon…. Eh, same thing!
Hex: Enough! I’ll give you one last chance. Surrender yourself to me, and this will all be over.
[Ethan began to sweat as he took a look at the Omnitrix.]
Ethan: Ghoulseye is the only transformation I know that can win this. As long as I don’t give into Hex, my friends will be safe.
[Ethan dialed Ghoulseye’s icon on the Omnitrix.]
Ethan: I’m sorry guys, but this is the only way for me to win!
[Ethan slammed down and a green light blinded Hex’s face. Hex gave an evil smirk. Meanwhile, the red zippers faded from Alice, Hannibal, Terence and Nikki’s mouths and gasped. The song shifted. We zoom up to reveal that Ethan transformed into Ghoulseye.]
Hex: Yes! Now give it to me… grant me the power!
Ghoulseye: Nah, how about instead we fight for that weapon instead?
Hex: As you wish…
[Hex and Ghoulseye flew towards each other. Hex launched red energy blasts as Ghoulseye dodged the attacks. Ghoulseye launched an arrow from his sticky ectoplasm bow from his cloak and it went flying toward Hex. A green cloud of smoke appeared on impact, and as the smoke faded, Hex was revealed to have created a dome shield around him. Hex flew in the air and began charging his energy.]
Hex: My turn! Surup Sucnohr!
[Hex launched a wave of water at Ghoulseye. To his surprise, he was hit and went flying toward the ground. Ghoulseye looked up in shock.]
Hex: MAJORUS GROTHIA!
[A giant energy fist that was twice the size of Hex was formed out of thin air. Hex launched towards Ghoulseye. It landed right next to Ghoulseye and exploded. The cloud of smoke quickly faded, and to Hex’s surprise, Ghoulseye was nowhere in sight.]
Hex: Where did he-?
[An intangible Ghoulseye appeared from the ground and held an ectoplasmic scythe.]
Ghoulseye: Behind ya!
[Hex turned in time and created a riot shield to block the attack. Hex took deep breaths as sweat dripped down his face. In a green spinning background, Ghoulseye created a largely shaped bow out of his cloak and ectoplasm. He then summoned multiple giant arrows.]
Ghoulseye: SLIMY SINISTER ARROW BLITZ!!!
[Ghoulseye launched the arrows and they went flying towards Hex. Ghoulseye also charged towards Hex as well.]
Hex: This attack? AGAIN?!!!
[Hex’s palms began to glow red as the arrows blasted him. Ghoulseye’s body, surrounded in an energy field shaped like an arrow, made its impact. The arrows and Ghoulseye created a large energy explosion around Hex. The explosion created a large gust of wind, shattering all the glass in the skylight. The energy cage that surrounded Hannibal, Terence, Nikki and Alice faded as they dropped to the ground. They began to slowly get up as a cloud of dust faded, with Hex struggling to stand straight. Hex began taking more deep breaths.]
Ghoulseye: I GOTCHA THIS TIME, HEX! There’s nowhere left for you to run!
Hex: No, this isn’t over… Not by a long shot! I still have one trick left up my sleeve...
[Red energy circuited through his palms as he began to chant a spell.]
Hex: Transforma Eliberare… [Charging] Transforma Eliberare…
[Hex went flying toward Ghoulseye and Ghoulseye prepared another arrow to his bow.]
Ghoulseye: THIS FIGHT IS OVER!!!
Hex: TRANSFORMA ELIBERARE!!!
[The song shifted.]
[Before Ghoulseye could fire his final attack, Hex grabbed the Omnitrix symbol and red electricity began shooting out from it. The Omnitrix began to make malfunctioning noises as Ghoulseye screamed with his whole body surrounded by electricity. A white light shot out from Ghoulseye’s eyes and mouth.]
[Ghoulseye’s entire body began to glow white and a white light blinded the screen. A cloud of smoke surrounded the area, as Ethan went flying out of the smoke cloud. Ethan’s body was covered with scrapes and tears in his clothing as he panted heavily. The Omnitrix began beeping from Ethan’s wrist as he turned to it, noticing it flashing yellow.]
Ethan: Ugh… What the hell…
[Ethan slowly began to get up. He heard small laughter in the background.]
Ethan: I don’t know what you did, Hex, but you better not have damaged my watch! Especially since this thing doesn’t come with a warranty!
[The laughter grew louder.]
Ethan: Huh…? ...AH!
[The cloud of smoke faded as Hex was standing beside Ghoulseye.]
Ghoulseye: [Laughs] Finally… I am free!
[Ghoulseye flew higher into the air.]
Ghoulseye: I'M FREE! [Laughs harder]
Ethan: Aw, man…
Ghoulseye: No longer am I trapped inside that obtrusive watch or that energy core that’s trapped me there for centuries!
Ethan: Wait… you’re…?
Ghoulseye: Yes… I have ascended… I have been reborn… I am...
[Ghoulseye’s Omnitrix symbol shattered to pieces as he began transforming in a blue spinning background. His pink armor changed to blue as his armor transformed into a more vicious appearance. His horns turned white, and his arms grew blades. The star on his stomach changed as it transformed into a spiritual spinning vortex and moved into the place of the Omnitrix symbol. He stood and struck a pose with his arms raised out.]
[Everything stood silent as everyone, except for Terence was shocked and surprised.]
Terence: Oh, you gotta be fucking kidding me!
Sha’Rrow: My kind thought they could trap me inside their angelic core! But thanks to the person who created that set device on your wrist, they managed to use that exact same one which trapped me in the first place! For months now, I had my DNA randomized and was trapped as some young adolescent’s play thing! Pulling pranks on kids, dragging myself onward for such pathetic useless fights, and touching myself in places I suspect are inappropriate!
Sha’Rrow: Now… I am free! And the first thing I shall do now that I’m back in command is to destroy that thing so I will never be trapped in it again!
[Sha’Rrow began flying toward Ethan, as he reacted swiftly toward the Omnitrix and slammed down. Nothing happened.]
Ethan: Uh oh… AH!
[Sha’Rrow attempted to strike him with his fist but Ethan stepped backwards to dodge the attack. Ethan ran backwards to dodge more of his strikes. Sha’Rrow charged his fist with the spiritual energy circling his chest and struck Ethan with a super charged attack.]
[Ethan went flying back into the ground and Sha’Rrow turned his cloak into a bow and fired an arrow. It formed into a net and trapped Ethan inside. Alice, Hannibal, Terence, and Nikki were watching the fight from afar.]
Alice: C’mon! We have to go help him!
[Hannibal grabbed Alice by the shoulder.]
Hannibal: We can’t.
[We zoom out of Alice’s worried face as the scene turned back to Ethan as he noticed the Omnitrix was activated. He began turning the dial as Sha’Rrow floated to him.]
Sha’Rrow: What are you doing?
Ethan: Well, your weapons are made out of spiritual energy, right?
[AmpFibian’s icon appeared on the playlist.]
Ethan: So I thought I’d go ahead and do… THIS!
[As Ethan slammed down on the Omnitrix, a white light blinded the screen, as Sha’Rrow blocked the light. Once the light faded, the net shattered into particles as AmpFibian stood up with his arms charged with electricity. AmpFibian fired EMP blasts at Sha’Rrow as he turned to dodge the attacks. Sha’Rrow launched his ectoplasm and it stuck AmpFibian to the wall.]
AmpFibian: Not cool, dude! I just took a shower two nights ago!
[AmpFibian zapped his way out of the ectoplasm and broke free.]
AmpFibian: You know how much of a pain it is to keep this silk clean?
[Sha’Rrow struck AmpFibian and sent him to the ground.]
AmpFibian: I guess you’re not one of those sense of humor kind of guys…
[AmpFibian flew up in the air, and absorbed all the electricity in the room. He supercharged it into a turbo blast.]
AmpFibian: Let’s see you take on this!
[AmpFibian launched a giant ball of blue electricity, and it created a cloud of smoke. The smoke faded and Sha’Rrow stood there with no damage taken.]
AmpFibian: No way!
Sha’Rrow: Is this your attempt to defeat me? The poor reckless skills of an Amperi! The way you use your aliens, you don’t even use them to your fullest potential!
[Sha’Rrow fired multiple arrows and AmpFibian kept dodging the attacks. AmpFibian charged his arms and Sha’Rrow grabbed him by the chains and sent him to the wall.]
Sha’Rrow: You could’ve been using Ghoulseye all this time to conquer this world. In fact any alien inside could have the potential to at least wipe out a city. But instead, you sit there playing childish acts just to think you’re making something of yourself. Pathetic!
[Sha’Rrow went flying towards AmpFibian. Before AmpFibian could make any sudden movements, Sha’Rrow was surrounded in spiritual energy in the shape of an arrow and he launched himself toward AmpFibian. There was explosion on impact, and AmpFibian was sent flying outside into the police cars. Sha’Rrow flew outside as the officers aimed their guns at him.]
Commissioner: Shoot ‘em down! Shoot ‘em down!
AmpFibian: Wait guys, don’t!
[The officers fired their bullets at Sha’Rrow. He used his intangibility to let the bullets phase through him. Sha’Rrow began to raise his arm in the air.]
AmpFibian: NO, DON’T DO IT!
[Sha’Rrow finished raising his arm, and suddenly, the officers bodies began to shake and collapsed to the ground as clear white souls were lifted from their bodies. They were floating in the air with AmpFibian staring in disbelief.]
AmpFibian: You… killed them…
[Sha’Rrow signaled them to attack AmpFibian. The souls turned blue and their faces became mutated and demon like. The souls began attacking AmpFIbian as he struggled to fight against them.]
AmpFibian: NO! NO! GET OFF ME! STOP! AH!
[They kept trying to grab AmpFibian as he kept blasting them with electricity. AmpFibian charged his arms and stood up to launch an electrical wave at the souls. The souls faded away like smoke and AmpFibian took deep breaths.]
Sha’Rrow: …You killed them.
AmpFibian: No… I wouldn’t…
[Sha’Rrow made a devious smile.]
AmpFibian: That’s it… [Jumps] I’m so gonna-
[AmpFibian glowed in a yellow light and transformed back into Ethan. Ethan spat blood out of his mouth and collapsed into the ground. Ethan was unable to move his body.]
Sha’Rrow: Now, I’m going to take your soul and destroy that watch so that no other alien would be trapped inside again. A shame for the other DNA samples inside, but a sacrifice for the greater good!
[The song ended. Sha’Rrow raised his palm up in the air and Ethan struggled to move. Before anything could happen, Hex called out to him.]
Hex: Wait! There’s no need to kill the boy. He won’t stand in your way now, he is defeated. After all, he won’t survive in our new world order.
Sha’Rrow: Our new world order?
Hex: Yes. Join me and grant me the power to wield the Ergaleío of Despair.
Sha’Rrow: Why would I do that?
Hex: Because together, nothing will stop us. Think of it, you were trapped inside that watch because your kind. And only I was capable of letting you out of there with a transfer spell.
Sha’Rrow: Are you saying I owe you a life debt?
Hex: No… I’m saying, if we team up together, the whole universe will be at our fingertips. You can get revenge on your kind, and I can reshape this world into the perfection it so rightfully deserves. All you have to do is trust me, grant me the power of the Ergaleío of Despair, and the entire world will be at our mercy.
Sha’Rrow: Normally, I would trap you inside and be rid of you. But since you did release me from my prison, I guess it’s only fair. Very well, if you value your life, you would trust yourself and your allegiance to me. If you can do that, I will accept your offer.
Hex: I will.
[Sha’Rrow smirked and lifted his fingers. The three items that were laying inside the museum began floating in the air and went flying towards Sha’Rrow. Sha’Rrow raised his hand out and began transforming the items. The Staff of Vibrius and Agniacius attached itself to the Colossal Stone. The Sabortooth Relic of Imperium attached itself to the staff and it transformed into a deadly energy scythe, glowing out of blue energy. Ethan gasped. The Ergaleío of Despair went flying into Hex’s hands.]
Sha’Rrow: It is yours…
[Hex began to laugh maniacally.]
Sha’Rrow: Now Hex, bring back the lives of this planet’s dead souls. Truly let the world know who you really are.
[Hex raised the Ergaleío of Despair with his hand, and a purple light blasted into the sky. Alice, Hannibal, Terence and Nikki ran outside, as they stood by the doorway to see the purple ray be shot into the sky. The laser faded and for a moment… nothing happened. The song ended.]
Hex: Nothing happened?
Sha’Rrow: Wait for it…
[Suddenly monstrous looking souls came flying out of the ground as Sha’Rrow began to laugh. Inside a small bedroom, a child was struggling to sleep. He opened his eyes and saw a soul ascending before him and the child screamed. Meanwhile, inside a family’s house, a soul ascended from the dining room table and the family screamed. In Downtown Merridale, cars stopped as souls began ascending from the ground. People went outside and ran away as the souls tried to grab and attack them. Back outside the museum, The screams of civilians could be heard everywhere and Sha’Rrow laughed harder.]
Sha’Rrow: Well done, Hex. Now, let us prepare for the new world order… Shall we?
Hex: Yes, let’s. It’s been fun, E-10, but I can’t wait to hear what happens when those blood thirsty souls drag you to hell!
[Hex laughed louder as he opened his grimoire, A red light blinded the screen as Hex and Sha’Rrow disappeared.]
Ethan: Agh… Dang it! What have I done...
[The particles floating in the air, reformed into the souls Ethan blasted from before.]
Ethan: Well, at least I didn’t actually kill them.
[The souls started attacking and grabbing Ethan. A portal appeared from the ground as they tried to drag Ethan deep down inside.]
Ethan: NO! AGH!
[Alice, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki ran toward Ethan.]
Nikki: Hang on, Ethan!
Alice: We got you!
[They tried pushing the souls away as Ethan kept getting dragged further into the hole.]
Ethan: Come on! Please, guys!
Hannibal: We’re trying!
[They struggled to pull Ethan, and Terence and Nikki lost their grip.]
Hannibal: C’mon man, I got you! Just push harder!
Ethan: Aghh… Hurry!
[The Omnitrix started beeping and flashing yellow. Alice and Hannibal eventually lost their grip and Ethan was pulled into the hole. The portal began closing.]
Alice, Nikki, Hannibal: ETHAN!!!
[Before the portal could completely close, Heatblast appeared shooting himself out of the hole. Heatblast flew into the sky and attempted to make a safe landing, but he transformed back to normal in a yellow light. Ethan fell down with his face hitting the ground. Hannibal and Alice grabbed Ethan.]
Ethan: Agh… I think Hex broke the watch…
Hannibal: C’mon, we have to get out of here before more of those soulsuckers grab us!
Terence: And where exactly are we going to hide?
Alice: I might know a place! Hurry!
[The five began running out into the streets. Ethan glared at the Omnitrix as it continued to flash yellow. Everything went black as the Omnitrix blinked a few more times into the screen.]
GHOULSEYE HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM THE OMNITRIX!
[Sha'Rrow raised his arms and laughed maniacally.]
HOW WILL THEY BE ABLE TO RETURN HIM?
[Sha’Rrow began flying toward Ethan, as he reacted swiftly toward the Omnitrix and slammed down. Nothing happened.]
[Sha’Rrow attempted to strike him with his fist but Ethan stepped backwards to dodge the attack. Ethan ran backwards to dodge more of his strikes.]
STAY TUNED... NEXT!
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NOW!
[The group was inside Hex's abandoned lair, Ethan stood up while the others looked at him.]
Ethan: Let's keep moving.
[The scene opened at night, where the silhouettes of five people ran down the dark concrete streets. The sounds of heavy breathing could be heard. They passed by dark buildings and stepped near a lamppost. The silhouettes were then revealed to be Ethan, Alice, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki. Nikki turned around and her eyes widened.]
Nikki: They found us!
[A group of monstrous white spirits were chasing after the five with their arms raised out and mouths wide open.]
Terence: Over there!
[They turned into an alleyway and the spirits followed them down the path. The spirits began closing in as the walls thickened. After making three turns down the alleyway, they spirits suddenly found themselves back on the streets. They looked around to notice none of them were in their range and flew off. Meanwhile, from the side, Hannibal peeked his head out to notice they flew away. He ducked his head back in and turned to the others.]
Hannibal: Okay, we lost them.
Alice: Anytime now, Ethan.
[Ethan turned to the Omnitrix as it was still blinking yellow.]
[Ethan slammed down and nothing happened.]
Terence: What’s the hold up?
Nikki: Let me guess, Ghoulseye broke your watch?
Terence: Great, that’s just great! Now how are we supposed to put up a fight against these soul-sucking specters?
Nikki: We’ll figure something out, Terence.
Terence: Can we? This is bigger than any threat we’ve faced. Not to mention, Ethan let Hex take his most powerful transformation away from him. We said for you to not use Ghoulseye against Hex, How could you let this happen?!
Alice: Terence, stop!
Hannibal: No he’s right, you practically put the entire world in danger! We told you not to do it and you still did it anyway, and for what, just to try and prove a point?!
Hannibal: I have a family down here, Ethan. And for all we know, they could be in Sha’Rrow’s clutches right now, just waiting to be his next victims! I’m going to call them.
[Hannibal searched through his contacts, while Ethan, looking away, turned to notice his Omnitrix began to make more noises. The noises began to sound more like an alarm.]
Nikki: Ethan, shut it off!
Ethan: I can’t… I…
[The Omnitrix glowed yellow, and his whole body became surrounded in a yellow light. In a flash, the spirits turned over to have found their location. Ethan was revealed to be Diamondhead.]
Diamondhead: Uh oh… Run!
[The spirits chased after the group, Diamondhead turned around and began to fire shards from his hands. They hit the ghosts, turning them into particles, and they quickly reformed.]
Diamondhead: Oh, you have to got to be kidding me!
[Diamondhead ran away, and caught up for the group.]
Diamondhead: Head for cover, I’ll do everything I can to distract them!
[They ran to the side while Diamondhead stopped in the middle of the streets. An army of spirits floated toward Diamondhead.]
Diamondhead: Hey, you big ugly ghosts! Come get me!
[The spirits charged toward Diamondhead, and he made blades from his hands.]
Diamondhead: Alright... IKUZE!
[Diamondhead raised his blades. Alice, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki were watching from afar by the back of a building. They gasped, and before Diamondhead could strike, a cluster of bullets went flying through the air and went through the ghosts. The ghosts turned around and roared at what hit them. It was revealed to be a SACT tank and a group of armed soldiers firing at the spirits. Lieutenant Steel’s truck pulled out with somebody else driving the vehicle as he was shooting out the ghosts from the window. He popped his head out.]
Lieutenant Steel: Come on! Let’s get a move on!
[Alice, Terence, Hannibal and Nikki ran towards them as Diamondhead began running toward Lieutenant Steel’s truck. Diamondhead randomly changed into Wildmutt, and shifted to running on all fours. Hannibal made it to the vehicle in time and grabbed Nikki. Alice and Terence were running behind the two, and Wildmutt ran to them. Alice and Terence stopped and climbed onto his back. Wildmutt jumped onto Lieutenant Steel’s truck, and they had managed to get away. The song shifted]
[Meanwhile, at Hollywood Hill, a newly built fortress was standing at the top of the hill. The camera zoomed inside to reveal Hex and Sha’Rrow were inside.]
Hex: How do you like your new lair?
Sha’Rrow: It works, for now…
Hex: My spirits are fast builders, it only took merely an hour to assemble this together.
Sha’Rrow: Some of the pieces look unstable.
Hex: I think it’s a fine work of craftsmanship.
Sha’Rrow: Coming from somebody who used to teach at an art school, that really says a lot.
[A vein popped out of Hex’s head and he took a deep breath. Hex looked down below as Sha’Rrow was watching the spirits beginning to take many lives.]
Sha’Rrow: Look at them all, running down there, like Faisma Birds during the Month of the Hunt. Those humans are so much more fun to traumatize compared to my own people.
Hex: Now, that you’ve been released, what do you plan to do with this planet? I mean of course we are ruling it together, but you know...
Sha’Rrow: I plan to make to continue where I left off. You see, where I come from, my world was filled with life and energy. Every ghoul would come out to do whatever they wanted and whenever they wanted, but they mostly used it to bond with one another and have the time of their lives. There was no government besides general morals. It was despicable, but all of that changed once I took over. I saw a planet that needed to be reshaped. I saw a planet who so desperately needed a turn around. I saw a planet that needed to be grounded with some sort of government. And that’s where I came in. I turned that world into into a planetary dictatorship under my rule. Everything was grounded, everything had order, everything was… perfect. However, that all changed when the rebellion came along… Now, I plan to take my revenge and trap the ones who had imprisoned me 5,000 years ago, Once I turn this planet upside down, the citizens of this world will cower with fear, the spirits will become the new ghastly army to run my new empire, and I plan to take my throne back from Tryelle, and take over other worlds until the entire universe is mine. And it’s all because of you, Hex. You managed to make this all possible. I still don’t know how to thank you for this.
Hex: You can start by letting me join you as we take over this world together.
Sha’Rrow: I think that can be arranged.
[The two shook hands and everything began to zoom outside of Sha’Rrow and Hex’s lair. The song ended. It then cut to to a camera footage as a news reporter was standing outside.]
Reporter: It’s been only 3 hours since the spirit outbreak, and nearly thousands of people have been found or reported dead. Spirits have awakened from the afterlife as they come back to haunt us for who knows why. The evil mastermind behind it all appears to be this mysterious cape-wearing spectre character. It is safe to assume has control of the spirits. Nobody knows how this creature is doing this or what his purpose may be. Officers have been standing by outside his new evil lair at Hollywood Hill, and they are ready to burst in and raid the castle any moment. Only time will tell what will happen next, more answers to come in the next half hour.
[We zoom out from the screen, as it appears that Lieutenant Steel, Alice, Terence and Nikki were watching the program inside a dark storage center, surrounded by equipment.]
Lieutenant Steel: So much for keeping matters like this secret. We were only able to keep situations like the Tideslayer incident quiet for so long. But now, thanks to this, there’s no going back now.
[Meanwhile, Hannibal was standing to the side on a phone call.]
Hannibal: Okay, Granny. I know, I know, I’m okay. Look, you and Naomi stay inside and I tell you when it’s safe alright? Thank you.
[Hannibal ended the call and walked toward the others.]
Hannibal: They’re okay. As long as they stay inside for the time being, they should be safe.
[Hannibal turned to the side where the group heard Four Arms lifting a heavy object. Four Arms sat it down and wiped his face.]
Four Arms: There, all set...
[The Omnitrix symbol began flashing yellow as static electricity shot out of it.]
Four Arms: Oh, man. Not again…
[Four Arms transformed into Heatblast, and standing looking at himself. He transformed into Goop began as his feet were standing on Heatblast’s scorch marks. Goop jumped straight into the air.]
[Goop transformed into Wildmutt. Wildmutt whimpered dueto Goop’s acidic slime covering his front paws.]
[Wildmutt transformed into AmpFibian and flew into the air out of his control.]
[AmpFibian transformed back into Ethan and went plummeting into the ground.]
Lieutenant Steel: You mind telling me what’s going on?
Alice: Hex freed Ghoulseye from the watch, and he turned out to be some deadly entity named Sha’Rrow. Now Sha’Rrow is using all his power to take over the planet. Judging from my hypothesis, his release triggered Ethan’s watch, and now he has no control over his transformations.
[Ethan stood up, as he began to groan and hold onto his stomach.]
Ethan: I could… [Transforms]
Heatblast: …really use… [Transforms]
Diamondhead: Some help right now...
[Diamondhead’s face became bloated, and he transformed into Echo Echo. Echo Echo spat out a sonic blast, destroying part of the ground and shattering the glass from the windows. Echo Echo transformed back into Ethan and fell to the ground as he took heavy breaths.]
Ethan: Can I die now?
Terence: If he keeps transforming like this, he’s going to give away our location.
Lieutenant Steel: That’s definitely going to be a problem.
[Ethan grabbed onto his throat as he felt like it was on fire.]
Nikki: He can’t go on like this. Is there anything you can do to help?
Lieutenant Steel: We have some experts at the lab who could help, but I don’t think they can do much.
[Ethan transformed again, and stood back up as Lodestar.]
Lodestar: Maybe I can use some of the tech in here to build something!
[Lodestar raised his arms and began lifting many metallic objects up from the ground. In a flash, he transformed into Goop and the objects went flying into the ground, making a loud clang.]
Lieutenant Steel, Alice, Hannibal, Terence, Nikki: SHHHH!
[Goop slithered onto the ground, and transformed into XLR8.]
[The song shifted.]
[A green light began appearing from the side of the room.]
Nikki: Uh oh…
Hannibal: It must be one of Sha’Rrow’s minions!
Terence: They found us! Dammit, Ethan!
Lieutenant Steel: Everyone, get ready!
[Lieutenant Steel raised his weapon, as XLR8 stood up ready to attack. Everyone else stood in a defense and fighting position. The green light faded and it appeared to be a small gremlin standing before them.]
Terence: Uh, what is that?
Hannibal: It’s not a spirit, that’s for sure.
XLR8: It must be one of Hex’s minions. I’m going to knock that thing back out of existence!
[XLR8 transformed into Four Arms]
Four Arms: With three hands tied behind my back!
[Four Arms charged toward the gremlin and it rolled its eyes. It grabbed a device from its pocket and tapped the button. Four Arms timed out back into Ethan and fell to the ground.]
Ethan: Okay, that hurt a lot…
Gremlin: You really think that was going to work on me? Is that any way to treat the creator of your device?
Alice, Nikki, Lieutenant Steel, Hannibal, Terence: Huh?
Hannibal, Lieutenant Steel: I’m sorry, what now?
[Ethan looked and stood up. Ethan took a closer look at the gremlin, noticing some of the gadgets on the utility belt.]
Ethan: Wait a minute… Are you?
Gremlin: That’s right. I’m A’taenda, and I’m the creator of your Omnitrix.
[Ethan widened his eyes, as he was frozen in shock.]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES... NEXT!
[A shadow casted around Ethan, revealing to be Sha'Rrow rising before him.]
Ethan: Oh man...
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NOW!
[Hex raised the Ergaleío of Despair in the air as energy spiked out of it. Hex also began to laugh maniacally.]
Nikki: I’m sorry, you said you were the creator of his what now?
A’taenda: Oh my... Didn’t you hear me? I’m the creator of his Omnitrix! You earthlings can be so dumb sometimes.
Alice: What’s an Omnitrix?
Ethan: The thing on my wrist. I’ve been meaning to tell you guys… But when I was captured by Hex, I had a sequence of visions playing through my head over and over, most notably chanting the name Omnitrix. It was mentally nuts, and I thought I was just dreaming, but when Kraab came over and attacked Splattown...
Hannibal: That was when he going after the watch!
Lieutenant Steel: You knew about this the whole time and didn’t tell anybody! Why?!
Ethan: I’m still trying to process over everything that happened. There’s some stuff I still don’t fully understand, but it had something to do with each and everyone of you. I think… I think I saw Hex trying to take Ghoulseye out of the Omnitrix, too. I don’t know...
Alice: Ethan, we’re supposed to tell each other everything. How could you keep this secret from us, from me? You’re the one person I tell everything to! How could you not tell this to me?
Hannibal: We made an agreement not to keep secrets from anybody, and the fact that you kept something this big from us!
A’taenda: Oh, enough with the drama! I didn’t come all this way to Earth just to deal with some sappy romance novel. Now, if you would give me the Omnitrix, I will be on my way.
A’taenda: It’s thanks to you, your planet is in great danger. Why should I trust somebody to keep my Omnitrix if it means the entire universe could be destroyed?
Ethan: Because we can still save it!
A’taenda: Look, I haven’t had any contact with my Omnitrix since I was forced to take it offworld. There are people out there searching for this thing, and when my homeworld was nearly invaded by several attacks, I was forced to send it to the only planet I could think of where I thought nobody could ever get their hands on it. Since then, I’ve had no contact with my Omnitrix for the last year, and just when the device finally goes online, I notice there’s something wrong with it.
Nikki: The Ghoulseye Glitch!
A’taenda: Exactly! Thanks to the removal of your DNA sample, the Omnitrix is now malfunctioning, without a 10th slot to keep it in line, that watch is now a deadly hazard to you and everybody around you. So give it here!
A’taenda: Excuse me?
Ethan: I’m not giving up the Omnitrix. I’ve had this thing for over the last year and nobody knows it better but me.
A’taenda: That’s funny kid, but if you think you-
Ethan: And my planet is also in danger! I won’t allow the Earth to be taken over by one of my transformations. I caused this mess, so I need to be the one to clean it up.
A’taenda: You really think you can save your planet from a rampaging peak-condition Vapenterisk?
Lieutenant Steel: You’d be surprised. This kid is capable of things that no man thought were possible. He’s fought up against many threats and saved the lives of many to make sure that this planet would remain safe. Sure he’s had a few slip ups, but time and time again this kid has proved that he’s capable. I would suggest you give him the chance to fix things before you decide to let this planet to become a wasteland.
A’taenda: Alright, fine. I guess I’ll give you this one chance. After all, if I let this problem escalate any further, who do you think they’re going to blame for this mess? C’mon kid, let’s fix your watch. If I let you continue transforming out of your control, that’s going to cause problems for both of us and it’ll scramble your DNA. And trust me, that will not look pretty.
[The song ended. Moments later, we pan to the side where A’taenda was holding a lighter, trying to attach a blue gadget onto Ethan’s dial. It zapped Ethan while the Omnitrix made a buzzing noise.]
A’taenda: That should do it. Now you should be able to control your amount of transformations. However, it won’t last for long. So be careful, Ethan!
Ethan: Great, that’s just the pep-talk I wanted to hear...
Lieutenant Steel: We’re almost done setting up the weapons. We should be able to have a fighting chance against these spirits, but I don’t know how long for.
Ethan: We’ll do everything that we can.
[Ethan noticed the others preparing their own weapons, while Alice was sitting on his phone. Ethan put up a straight face and walked over to them.]
Ethan: Hey, are you guys okay?
Nikki: We’re fine, Ethan.
[Ethan noticed Hannibal and Alice weren’t talking to him. Ethan sighed.]
Ethan: Look, I’m sorry. I know we made an agreement to tell each other everything. And I even told you, Hannibal, I was going to do that from now on. But you have to understand, I was worried about your guys’ safety.
Hannibal: Our safety? OUR SAFETY?! Ethan, we fought up against terrorists! [Shoves] Warmongering ocean people! [Shoves] And now you just decide to worry about our own safety, over some stupid dream! [Pushes harder.]
Ethan: I didn’t know what was going on at the time! I didn’t know what was going to happen or not! I’ve been focused on figuring that out the last 3 months.
Nikki: Yeah, and you realize you could’ve come to us to help you. We could’ve helped you saw this sooner!
Ethan: Do you realize how hard this was to tell you, to tell your friends you watched them die in front of you! I saw suffering in my visions, I saw Nikki screaming for help, I saw Hannibal on the verge of tears holding a dead body, I saw Terence being beaten to a bloody pulp, I saw that Alice was about to wrapped around some murderer’s fingertips! Do you think it’s easy for me to come out and say that at some point it will be my fault that you all get killed?!
[Everyone stood there with complete silence, as Ethan shed a few tears.]
Ethan: Everything I saw in there was a mix of good and bad, but to watch you guys die… I couldn’t say anything… I wanted to but I just couldn’t…
[Ethan slid to the ground and curled himself into a ball.]
Ethan: I thought it was all apart of Hex’s mad dream… But then, Kraab told me about the Omnitrix, and Hex summoned 10 monsters to attack the campus. Not everything in those visions have been accurate thus far, but if somehow any of those visions manage to come to life, it will be my fault for letting it happen.
[A’taenda walked over and smacked him in the face. The song shifted.]
A’taenda: Stop feeling sorry for yourself! If some of those visions haven’t came true yet, that means there’s still a chance to save your friends’ life. Right now, we have bigger things to worry about, so get a grip on yourself and stop worrying about everything! [Turns to the others.] The same goes for the rest of you. Ethan may have had his reasons not to tell you, but based on my understanding, it’s only because he cares about you. Arguing with each other and sulking to the ground isn’t going to help right now! So let’s put our differences aside and focus on stopping Sha’Rrow before he takes over the rest of your planet. Deal?
Hannibal: Yeah, alright. I get it, man. You were just trying to have our backs, and we didn’t realize what you were going through. Well now we have yours.
Nikki: Whatever you need us to do.
[Ethan smiled and noticed Alice still hasn’t said a word.]
[Alice stood back up and turned to him. She slapped him on the other side of his face.]
Alice: Don’t ever do that to me again!
Lieutenant Steel: Now that we’re done with the drama, can we get a move on? I have army tanks set out there waiting for my instructions.
Ethan: Yeah. You guys stay here, I don’t want anything happening to you.
Hannibal: No way! We just told you we have your back.
Terence: Come on, man. You can’t just ditch us out of all the action!
Nikki: What’s up with that?
Ethan: Alright, if you’re going…
[Ethan activated the Omnitrix core and slammed down. He transformed into Lodestar and lifted up his arms, as many objects around the room floated in the air. Lodestar began transforming the metallic objects and they began forming around the group. In a bright white light, the light blinded the screen. The scene shifted back to outside Sha’Rrow’s lair as Sha’Rrow was watching from afar. Hex nearby was holding a magic globe as he was able to see through parts of the world.]
Hex: Good news, over one third of the Earth has already been taken over by the spirits. The world shall soon tremble within our fingertips. I can already imagine, a world ruled by yours truly! Isn’t this so exciting?
Hex: [Grabs staff.] What’s wrong?
Sha’Rrow: I sense him.
Hex: Sense who? The boy with the magic wristwatch?
Sha’Rrow: Yes, he’s here.
Hex: How? That’s impossible!
Sha’Rrow: Oh but it isn’t. You see, I was trapped inside the Omnitrix for years, so I’m able to sense his whereabouts. I swore I sent my minions out to get him… Hmm... it appears the boy is stronger than I had realized, even without my power...
Hex: What should we do?
Sha’Rrow: Not to worry, even if he manages to get past the ghouls, he’ll be no match against us.
THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!
[Meanwhile, outside the Sha’Rrow’s lair, a group of SACT army tanks and trucks drove up Hollywood Hill.]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NEXT!
[FOUR ARMS TRANSFORMATION: Ethan’s face change and he stood back as he raised his arms out while the background faded behind him.]
THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!
Ethan: [The core pops up] There's still one alien you haven't met yet! [Slams down]
THE E-10 SPECIAL MOVIE EVENT: SPIRITED AWAY, CONTINUES NOW!
[Meanwhile, outside the Sha’Rrow’s lair, a group of SACT army tanks and trucks drove up Hollywood Hill. An army of spirits ascended from the ground, guarding the area. The vehicles stopped, and Lieutenant Steel stepped out of his truck, cocking his gun.]
Lieutenant Steel: We’re here.
[Ethan, Terence, Hannibal, Alice and Nikki each stepped out of the other vehicles, as they prepared their weapons.]
Nikki: He brought his army here.
Alice: He must’ve been expecting us to come. Fine by me. Little do they know, I’m a great shooter.
Ethan: Those bio-suits I built should be able to take on Sha’Rrow’s ghouls. With A’taenda’s help, I was able to build in electrifiers and other cool stuff.
Alice: Like that one suit I wore back when we fought the Gifted?
[A’taenda hopped off a truck in the background and walked over to them.]
A’taenda: You’re welcome. Oh wait, Ethan, there’s just one more thing. Once you get close enough to Sha’Rrow, set the Omnitrix to capture mode.
A’taenda: The yellow setting. Tap the side buttons a couple times and press down on the dial. That should activate the setting and you will be able to restore Ghoulseye back inside your Omnitrix.
Ethan: Perfect! Thanks, dude!
A’taenda: Uh, I’m sorry, did you just call me dude?
Ethan: Yeah, what's the problem?
A’taenda: Uh, hello! I’m a female!
Ethan: Wait a minute…
[Ethan took a closer look at At’tenda and realized she had a more slender figure.]
Ethan: ...A GIRL?!
Nikki: [Whispers to Alice] Even I couldn't have predicted that.
A’taenda: Yeah, I'm a girl! What you got a problem with that?
Ethan: No it's just... I thought....
A’taenda: Oh, I get it! No one has an issue with the female Tetramands being stronger than the males...
Ethan: Wait, what?!
A’taenda: But all of a sudden a device like this gets made, and it has to be a man that does it. I figured this galaxy was past this. I guess I was wrong, I suppose.
[Alice chuckled in the background while Lieutenant Steel walked in front of them. The song shifted.]
Lieutenant Steel: Alright, enough chatter kids. We have a ghost to attend to.
Ethan: He’s right. I know that after everything we’ve been through together, none of our opponents have been nothing like this. But I believe that we can do this, because no amount of threat is stronger than all of us combined. Even without my most powerful transformation, we can do this. So are you ready?
Alice, Hannibal, Nikki: Yeah!
[Terence crossed his arms and smiled.]
Lieutenant Steel: Just say the word.
[Ethan turned around facing the castle. Ethan turned the dial and selected Four Arms’ icon from the Omnitrix. He raised up his arm.]
Ethan: It’s Action Time! [Slams down]
[FOUR ARMS TRANSFORMATION: Ethan began spinning around as his body grew bigger from his back. Ethan raised his arm out as his hand turned red, with black fingerless gloves surrounding his palms. He made a fist and spun to the front as his arms extended to create an additional pair. Ethan’s face change and he stood back as he raised his arms out.]
Four Arms: FOUR ARMS!!! [The transformation background fades.]
At’tenda: Now, if you may excuse me, I’m going to hide over there! Good luck!
[At’tenda ran to the back of the van. The SACT soldiers began charging towards the spirits as the spirits did the same to them. The soldiers grabbed their weapons and fired lasers at the spirits. They faded into particles and reformed to start attacking them again. Four Arms, at the back of the truck, put on two pairs of shock gloves. Four Arms ran toward the fight and began punching the spirits, leaving an electrical shock. It threw the spirits back and more flew their way to Four Arms as he continued punching the group of spirits. Hannibal fired energy bolts at the other spirits and they faded into particles. A spirit began closing in on Hannibal from behind him, and he turned around and gasped as he had little time to react. Nikki jumped over and fired an energy shock of her own, throwing them back.]
Nikki: Wooo! Mega Girl back at it again, saving Mighty Man’s life!
[From behind, the spirit reformed and prepared to lay its claws onto her. Hannibal fired an energy bolt, blowing the spirit into particles.]
Hannibal: Not before Mighty Man gets another blow in!
[The two stood back to back as more spirits began to surround them.]
Hannibal: Hey, once this is over, why don’t I officially take you out to dinner.
Nikki: That is fine by me.
[Alice fired multiple energy bolts at the spirits. The spirits began fading away and Alice noticed one of them was behind her. She jumped and charged her energy bolts, and gave the spirit a karate kick and a shock punch to make it disappear into particles. She took deep breaths and wiped her face.]
Alice: One of the few good things my mom made me do…
[An army of ghouls went flying toward her, Alice raised her fists.]
Alice: I think I’m going to need some help…
[Terence charged at the other spirits and began punching the souls left and right. They each disappeared into particles but reformed around him. Terence continued punching and spoke to Ethan as he fought.]
Terence: How’s it going over there, Wellington?
Four Arms: They just keep coming left and right! I can barely clear a path!
[The blue gadget shattered off the Omnitrix symbol and static electricity began shooting off it.]
Four Arms: Uh oh…
[Four Arms transformed into Heatblast in a yellow light. The shock gloves melted off.]
Heatblast: HEATBLAST! Now I can do something about that!
[Heatblast raised his arms and launched a flamethrower from his palms. The spirits were caught in flames and began disappearing.]
Heatblast: If you can’t stand the heat, then get out of my way!
[More spirits from behind kept striking Heatblast.]
[Heatblast fired multiple fireballs as others kept trying to attack him. In a flash of yellow light, green slime dropped to the ground and fists punched them out of the way. It reformed, revealing Heatblast transformed into Goop.]
Goop: I said… get out of my way!
[Goop suddenly shot out goopy tendrils, sending multiple spirits back. Meanwhile, Alice made it to the back of a semi and opened the of the truck. Glowing red eyes shined from the inside.]
Alice: Hey, it’s okay girl, I’m here.
[It felt out of the semi, revealing to be Hypnotick as it hugged her and gave her a kiss.]
Alice: I missed you…
[Alice strapped herself on the back of Hypnotick and flew off into battle.]
Alice: Okay, spirits! You just messed with the wrong girl!
[Hypnotick screeched and lashed its tongue to attack the spirits, sending them back.]
[Alice flew past Hannibal and Nikki, surprised to see her riding it.]
Hannibal: When did she get that thing?
[Goop watching from beside, Goop switched into XLR8. Lieutenant Steel stood from the side, firing at the other ghouls.]
XLR8: I’m going after Sha’Rrow! [Zooms off]
Lieutenant Steel: Okay. Good luck, Ethan.
[The track ended.]
[XLR8 ran past the other ghouls and knocked away any that were in his way. XLR8 made it inside and ran up the stairs.]
XLR8: This is just like when I ran up that burning building! Ah, the good ol’ days.
[XLR8 made it up the stairs and looked around.]
XLR8: Hello! I’m here! Is anybody actually in here, or am I just wasting my time?
Sha’Rrow: Why yes, yes you are.
Hex: Back for more I see? Didn’t we teach you a lesson about six hours ago?
XLR8: Yeah, that losing bites! But I’m not here to wallow about the past. You’re going back inside the Omnitrix, Sha’Rrow!
Sha’Rrow: Never! I’ve been trapped inside that angelic core for 5,000 years! In fact, I wasn’t the only one. Did you know that the Omnitrix contains over millions of samples from all over across the galaxy? And have you ever wondered why the Omnitrix only allows you to become aliens for only 10 minutes at a time?!
XLR8: Really? It feels so much less than that.
Sha’Rrow: It’s part of the failsafe, so that the DNA of the alien lifeforms trapped inside the Omnitrix don’t overwhelm you and take you over. A failsafe that can be easily overwritten if someone knows the Omnitrix well enough. Another reason why I wasn’t able to take you over as Ghoulseye was because the DNA was randomized to create a completely new entity entirely. But now that I am free, I will be able to continue where I had left off and get revenge on my kind for stopping me from taking over my earth!
XLR8: Oh we’ll see about that! Get ready to face the wrath of… [Transforms]
[Diamondhead’s arm formed into a shooter and fired multiple shards at Sha’Rrow and Hex. The diamonds phased through Sha’Rrow, and Hex ran toward him, striking Diamondhead with his staff. Diamondhead’s other arm turned into a blade and blocked the attack. Hex smirked and ducked as Sha’Rrow fired an arrow above Diamondhead. It exploded upon impact and sent Diamondhead back, and raised his hand onto the ground to grab his landing.]
Hex: Fabecio Kai!
Diamondhead: Hey, whoa whoa! AHHH!
[Diamondhead’s body melted into a puddle of goo, and in a flash of light, it turned green. Its fist raised out, striking Hex from below. Hex went flying and the puddle morphed into Goop.]
Goop: Shapeshifting, it’s what I do! [Transforms]
Wildmutt: RRAAAHH-RO, RUFF!
[Wildmutt jumped towards Sha’Rrow as Sha’Rrow constructed a staff. The staff then transformed it into a scythe and Wildmutt grabbed on the blade. Sha’Rrow swung him back, and Wildmutt transformed into Heatblast upon landing on the ground. Heatblast stood up and launched a fireball. Sha’Rrow dodged the attack and flew towards him, preparing to strike. Heatblast transformed into Four Arms, and Four Arms tried multi-striking Sha’Rrow, but the attack phased through him.]
Four Arms: Hey, no fair! I can't phase!
[Four Arms was blasted from behind by a red laser and transformed into Wildmutt as he went flying into the wall. Giant pieces of rumble fell onto Wildmutt.]
Hex: You sure can't. I say that was the best way of putting down a mad dog. Now let’s finish him…
[Heatblast bursted from the piles of rock, and unleashed a massive heatwave, throwing Hex back. Hex got back up and aimed his staff.]
Hex: Enough! Aquata Risa Spackwata!
[The ground began shaking below Heatblast and a waterspout shot out from the ground. In a green flash of light, Heatblast fell to the ground, transforming back into Ethan.]
Sha’Rrow: Is this really what Earth has to offer as its protector? Pathetic! And I here I thought you would oppose a bigger challenge for me.
[As they talked, Ethan struggled to move. He attempted to get up but dropped to the ground. He tried turning to the Omnitrix, but it appeared to be recharging.]
Hex: It’s sad really, after everything we’ve been through together this last school year, I thought you would have learned something in that thick skull of yours. I guess I was wrong. You really are weak, Wellington. You can’t even save your own planet. Pathetic…
[Ethan gave Hex a nasty glare while tears dripped down his face. The song ended.]
[Meanwhile, as Alice was riding on Hypnotick, Hypnotick was pushing more spirits back with its tongue. Alice fired a few energy bolts at the spirits that came her way. Lieutenant Steel down below, prepared a blast from his tachyon cannon. It began charging blue.]
Lieutenant Steel: TAKE THIS YOU ECTO-CREEPS!
[A giant blue laser fired and it launched a huge blast, wiping out the spirits from the battlefield. Smoke and small particles floated around the scene.]
Lieutenant Steel: That should give us about at least a half hour before they regenerate.
Nikki: I don’t think so! Look, more are on the way!
[From below the hill, a group of spirits were headed their way.]
Hannibal: Looks like we don’t have time to wait around.
[As the group prepared into fighting stances, Lieutenant Steel pressed on his com.]
Lieutenant Steel: Sargent, this is Lieutenant Steel, head of the Alien Containment Team Commission, send in Squad Section Alpha Niner Tango, asap. I repeat, Alpha Niner Tango. We’re gonna need ‘em.
[Alice glanced her eyes to the side looking at the castle behind her. She turned to Hypnotick, and rubbed her face.]
Alice: Stay here and be a good girl. Fight as many spirits off as you can.
[Hypnotick stared at Alice with a worried expression.]
Alice: It’s okay, I’ll be safe. I promise.
[Alice snuck off from the group and ran towards the direction of the castle.]
Hannibal: Guys, the spirits have already begun to reform!
Nikki: [Looks around] Hey, wait a minute! Where’s Alice?
Lieutenant Steel: Too late, here they come!
[The spirits went flying towards the group as it roared in front of them. Meanwhile, Alice made it inside the castle and climbed up the stairs. She heard Hex laughing in the background, and once she made it to the room, she hid to the side and watched from afar. She gasped and saw Ethan laying on the ground, as he tried to get up.]
Ethan: Ergh… ergh… When my Omnitrix recharges, you two are so going to…
[Hex stomped on Ethan’s back and rubbed his foot onto his back. Ethan screamed from the top of his lungs.]
Hex: How does it feel to have everything taken from you, knowing that you’ve lost?
Ethan: Funny, coming from the guy who just got himself hit in the nuts!
[Ethan punched him in the nuts as Hex screamed and stepped off Ethan as he held onto his groin. Hex raised his arm and threw Ethan from all the way to the side of the room.]
Hex: You think... hitting me in the crotch is going to save you? No! In fact, it only makes me want to kill you even more.
Ethan: Then, why don’t you do it?
Hex: Because I’d like to torture you for after everything you did to me. You took my job, my life! I figured I would pay you with satisfaction as you suffer a slow, painful and miserable death! It’s sad really, seeing that nobody has arrived to watch you meet your demise. I actually thought your so-called friends would be sad to see you go, I guess they don’t really care about you at all.
Ethan: No… they…
Hex: Oh, please! They’re just a bunch of college students who are busy worrying about themselves. Did you really think you would’ve actually made friends by attending Horizons? In this world, all people care about is taking what is there’s and making it to the top. Nobody has time for something as redundant as friendship. If you can honestly tell me that there’s someone out there who truly cares about you, then maybe I would believe you. But you can’t now can you?
Hex: Then that only proves me right that no one would truly care if you were gone. So say goodbye, E-10...
Ethan: Wait, let me just say one more thing.
Sha’Rrow: You are both wasting my time here! Hurry up!
Ethan: You’re right. How could I think that if I went to Horizons, that I would instantly make friends right off the bat? Well, guess what, I did… and I let them down… First, I had to keep my powers a secret from the public, and that resulted into getting my friends nearly killed, then I didn’t tell them about the visions I had in my head. Now they’re probably putting on a straight face when realistically they hate me for it. Everyone hates me.
[Alice watching from the sidelines, she turned away to wipe her face.]
Ethan: But whether that’s the case or not, I can’t let the whole world down, not now! Even if Alice, Terence, Hannibal, Nikki hate me… I care a great deal about them! From the moment I first ran into Alice, that moment changed everything for me.
[Alice turned back and gasped.]
Ethan: She helped me make Horizons become the very first place I can call my own. She helped me realized things that I could never realize myself, and if you think for one second I’m just going to let you two come in and take everything away from me, then you’ve really pissed me off. Because I’m not going to let that happen! I can’t lose now! Not with everything that’s in stake! My home, my friends… none of that!
[The track shifted.]
[Ethan struggled pushing himself up, until he finally stood up. He raised his arm up and stood his leg back.]
Ethan: So go ahead, do your worst… but if there’s one thing you should know...
[The Omnitrix recharged, and Ethan transformed in a yellow light.]
Heatblast: …It’s that I’m not done yet!
Sha’Rrow: Oh great, now you’ve done it! I knew I shouldn’t have let you two go on for that long!
[Heatblast shot a flamethrower from his palms. Hex unleashed a white energy blast and the two attacks collided. Sha’Rrow flew towards Heatblast and created a scythe. He lashed the scythe at Heatblast, who jumped to dodge the attack. Sha’Rrow made multiple more attempts to strike Heatblast, as he jumped a bunch of times to dodge the attacks. Heatblast transformed into AmpFibian, who wrapped his tentacles around the scythe and electrocuted Sha’Rrow, throwing him back. Hex flew above AmpFibian, raising his staff in the air.]
[AmpFibian shot a jolt of electricity, throwing Hex back. Hex landed beside Sha’Rrow, as Sha’Rrow created multiple energy arrows and levitated them in the air. He waved his hand and all of them went flying towards AmpFibian. AmpFibian, noticing the attack, tried flying away as fast as he could. The arrows followed after AmpFibian, and AmpFibian turned into Lodestar. Lodestar slid onto the ground and created a forcefield to block the attack. The arrows exploded on impact, and Lodestar let down his forcefield safe and sound. Metallic objects went flying towards Lodestar, two of them knocking Lodestar back. He looked up to notice Hex was controlling the objects. Lodestar used his own magnetism to launch the objects back at Hex, and Hex created a dome to block the attacks. Sha’Rrow threw his ectoplasm at Lodestar. Lodestar transformed into Goop, and Goop splat to the ground then morphed back up.]
Goop: Ew! Your cape’s all dirty! Let me clean that for you!
[Goop jumped over and shot his acidhose attack, melting through Sha’Rrow’s cloak.]
Sha’Rrow: AH! MY CLOAK! You insolent wretch!
[Sha’Rrow tried striking Goop with a ghostly kunai, but he switched into XLR8 dodging the attack.]
XLR8: Can’t catch whatcha can’t see!
[XLR8 ran away from Sha’Rrow and Hex raised out his hand, glowing in aura.]
Hex: Facio Gravis!
[XLR8 suddenly stopped running and was forced to stop. He was unable to move.]
[Hex and Sha’Rrow both flew towards XLR8. XLR8 switched into Four Arms and Four Arms smashed the ground, sending chunks of the floor flying toward them. The whole ground collapsed under them. Sha’Rrow, Hex, and Four Arms went flying towards the ground. Alice began screaming as the floor crumbled beneath her, and Hypnotick flew in to catch Alice and she landed safely to the ground.]
Alice: Thanks, girl.
[Alice petted Hypnotick as it rubbed its face against hers. Hex created an energy mattress and fell straight onto it. Sha’Rrow phased through the ground to soften his landing. The mattress disappeared and Hex glared at AmpFibian floating before him. AmpFibian and Hex fired their energy attacks at each other and their blasts collided.]
Hex: You think you can defeat me so easily?
[AmpFibian switched into XLR8 as he ran around dodging all of Hex’s attacks.]
Hex: I am Hex, I am the greatest sorcerer of all 17 dimensions. You cannot stop me!
[A giant metallic object went flying into Hex and he went soaring across the room.]
Lodestar: Think again, Voldemort! [Transforms]
AmpFibian: After everything I’ve been through! [Transforms]
Heatblast: And after all the experiences… [Transforms]
Diamondhead: …I’ve made with my friends! [Transforms]
XLR8: And no matter what you say or what stands in my way… [Transforms]
Four Arms: ...even if it’s you two ugly cabalists… [Transforms]
Goop: I’m not going to back down now! [Transforms]
[Wildmutt roared at them, and transformed]
Lodestar: So give up now...! [Transforms]
Diamondhead: ...and let’s end this!
[Diamondhead created a blade from his hands and Sha’Rrow phased from the ground.]
Sha’Rrow: You won’t win, silicon scum! Stand down and your murder will be mercifully brief!
Diamondhead: Fat chance, ghost-freak!
Sha’Rrow: Then I’ll see to it that you’ll be dragged to hell!
[Sha’Rrow summoned an army of spirits from the ground and they tried grabbing Diamondhead.]
Diamondhead: Oh no you don’t!
[Diamondhead transformed into AmpFibian, and AmpFibian began supercharging himself.]
AmpFibian: TIME TO AMP THINGS UP!
[AmpFibian fired an electrical shockwave, and the spirits transformed into particles.]
AmpFibian: And I’ve just had about enough of you today, Sha’Rrow! You’re going back inside the Omnitrix, whether you like it or not!
Sha’Rrow: Hah! And how do you suppose you’re going to do that?
[AmpFibian tapped the Omnitrix and he transformed back into Ethan. Ethan tapped the side buttons and turned the dial. Ethan raised up his arm, revealing the Omnitrix was glowing yellow.]
Sha’Rrow: Wait a minute? Is that… THE CAPTURE SETTING?!
[A yellow laser shot from the Omnitrix and it began absorbing Sha’Rrow.]
Sha’Rrow: No… this can’t be happening!
Ethan: Oh don’t give me the cinematic crap, it’s over!
[Sha’Rrow began fading away, and in a white light and a cloud of dust surrounded the area. Hex stood back up and looked around.]
[A figure appeared in the cloud of dust and it faded revealing to be Ghoulseye back in his original form.]
Ghoulseye: Actually, I think you mean… GHOULSEYE!
[Ghoulseye raised his bow and fired multiple arrows at Hex. Hex began flying from the arrows and began blasting them one by one.]
Hex: No! I don’t know how you were capable of bringing Ghoulseye back into your Omnitrix, But I’ll just have to take him again!
[Ghoulseye went flying toward Hex, surrounded in a green spiritual aura.]
Ghoulseye: Oh! Not this time!
[Ghoulseye launched himself at Hex like an arrow, and Hex went flying back into the wall. Alice was cheering in the background, and Ghoulseye noticed, smiling. Ghoulseye flew over to Hex’s body. Hex began to wake up and he noticed he had an arrow aimed at his neck. The song ended.]
Ghoulseye: It’s over, Hex! Surrender!
[To Ghoulseye’s surprise, Hex suddenly began to laugh maniacally.]
Ghoulseye: Don’t test me! I’m not in the mood to play your games today!
Hex: Oh, I’m not testing you. I’m just surprised you didn’t realize that I still have the Ergaleío of Despair.
Ghoulseye: Oh, sonuvabitch!
[The song ended. From a purple flash of light, the Ergaleío of Despair appeared in Hex’s hands and he began to laugh once more. Meanwhile, outside, Terence was taking deep breaths.]
Terence: Okay, that’s all of them.
[Suddenly, a large group of more terrifying spirits appeared before them.]
Nikki: Maybe not!
[Meanwhile, inside, Hex was thrown back by Ghoulseye.]
Hex: You see! I don’t need Sha’Rrow anymore, when I can still take over the Earth myself!
[Hex striked a purple blast at Ghoulseye, and smacked him with his staff. Ghoulseye transformed back into Ethan, and Alice began helping him up.]
Hex: I should thank you really. Now without him standing in my way, nothing will stop me from reshaping the world into my rightful image!
Ethan: I’ll still stop you, Hex!
Hex: How? None of the aliens you have displayed possess the power to stop me or my army of spiritual monsters!
Ethan: There’s still one alien you haven’t met yet!
[The core raised from the Omnitrix and Ethan slammed down.]
[ECHO ECHO TRANSFORMATION: Ethan raised out his arm, and a white material began surrounding his arm. Ethan’s face then started to change. His ears formed into headphone pieces and cords began sticking out as they plugged into his back. Everything zoomed out to his front as Echo Echo raised up his arms, striking a pose. A bright flash shined at the camera, and the green light faded.]
Echo Echo: AND HIS NAME IS ECHO ECHO!
Hex: [Laughing] What’s that puny thing going to do to me?
Echo Echo: Cover your ears, Alice!
[Alice covered her ears, and Echo Echo duplicated into a group of clones to surround Hex.]
Echo Echo: WALL OF SOUND!!!
[The Echo Echo’s launched their wall of sound attack as they blasted Hex’s ears. Hex began screaming and began wiping each clone with an energy blast.]
Hex: Spirits, awaken!
[A group of monstrous spirits phased from the ground and began attacking Echo Echo. Echo Echo duplicated a group of clones as they ran away from the spirits. One of the Echo Echo’s turned back and screamed a soundwave, it caused the spirit to poof from the scene.]
Alice: Echo Echo can actually affect the spirits…
Echo Echo: Aw yeah! Now that’s what I like to hear!
[The other Echo Echos turned around and fired their sonic attacks at the spirits.]
Hex: What?! That’s impossible!
[More Echo Echo’s began wiping away Hex’s spirits, as they each poofed from the battlefield.]
Hex: This cannot be! How is sound supposed to be able to defeat my spirits?
Echo Echo: Guess your spirits aren’t as powerful as you thought!
[Echo Echo screamed his sound waves at Hex, throwing him back. Hex fired an energy jolt at the Echo Echo, as he ran away and jumped from the blast.]
Hex: Rava Eelartas Gallametroy!
[Hex’s spell created a giant wave of wind, and the Echo Echo clones went flying all over across the room. Alice hopped onto Hypnotick as Hypnotick stretched its tongue toward part of the wall hang on for dear life. Hex snapped his fingers and the gust of wind stopped. All the Echo Echo clones went flying to the ground, and they all disappeared one by one until only one remained standing. Hex flew toward the remaining Echo Echo. Echo Echo gasped as the song shifted]
Hex: You know what, Wellington? I don’t have any duplication spells in my book! I think this would be the perfect opportunity to go ahead and do this!
[Hex grabbed onto the Omnitrix symbol and red aura and electricity began surrounding the two of them.]
Echo Echo: Wait, no… stop!
[Echo Echo’s body began to crack, as it revealed a green glow was coming from the cracks. The cracks grew further and Echo Echo began screaming for his life.]
Alice: Not this time! Get him, Hypnotick!
[Hypnotick lashed its tongue out at Hex and it threw him across the room. As Echo Echo’s body finished cracking and a green light appeared before them. Ethan was thrown back to the side of the room, as he saw a cloud of smoke appear before them.]
Ethan: Ugh… that hurt more than the last time!
[Ethan rubbed his head, and as the cloud of smoke faded, he saw a green energy being looking like Echo Echo, floating before him.]
Ethan: Oh, man. Not again!
[Alice gasped. Echo Echo flew towards him and Ethan screamed and covered himself. For a moment, nothing happened, Ethan opened his eye and realized Echo Echo was giving him his hand.]
[Ethan moved his arms and gave Echo Echo his hand, as Echo Echo pulled him up.]
[Hex pulled the large pieces of rumble off him and floated in the air as he was channeling himself with red energy. He gasped as he saw Echo Echo flying beside Ethan, as it stood in a fighting stance.]
Ethan: Oh-ho-ho, man! You just made a big mistake, pal!
Hex: I don’t know what you are! But can’t you see? I freed you from your prison, you should be obeying me! Now destroy the boy, and let us take over the world together!
Ethan: I don’t know, what do you think?
[Echo Echo shook his head.]
Ethan: Yeah, I thought so. Now… go get him!
[Echo Echo dashed toward Hex at sonic speed and began punching Hex a bunch of times, sending him backwards. Hex got up and fired red electrical attacks, which Echo Echo swiftly dodged the blasts. Echo Echo smacked Hex again, and Hex went flying back. Hex looked up at the charging Echo Echo and created a red energy dome just in time before Echo Echo could strike him again. The green and red energy collided, and Echo Echo’s energy broke he dome and sent another sonic boom at Hex. Hex went flying into the ground, spitting blood out of his mouth. Echo Echo floated, waiting for his next action. Meanwhile, below, Hannibal, Terence, Nikki, Lieutenant Steel and A’taenda ran inside, making their way to Alice and Hypnotick.]
Nikki: Hey! Is everything alright?
Hannibal: Did Ethan manage to get Ghoulseye back?
Lieutenant Steel: What in blazes is that?
[A’taenda looked at Echo Echo floating in the sky and turned to see Ethan was watching the fight from nearby.]
A'taenda: Don’t tell me…
Alice: Yeah, that right there is Echo Echo’s true form.
Hex: Reanima Verdanica!
[Giant vines sprouted from the sides of the walls and began to wrap around Echo Echo. Echo Echo struggled to break free from the vines, but then created a green energy burst to break free from the vines. Echo Echo looked down as Hex bursted at him before he could do anything.]
[Hex began crushing Echo Echo against the wall.]
Hex: You think just because you’re freed from the Omnitrix means you can stop me? Think again! I have personally defeated all of Ethan’s transformations! What makes you any better than the rest of them?
[Hex’s magic continued crushing Echo Echo and he was struggling to break free. Echo Echo charged his energy, and unleashed a group of his energy clones to strike and attack Hex. Some of the clones began punching Hex all over across the room, and another one of the Echo Echo’s helped him out. The two Echo Echo’s joined back into the fight and, at light speed, sent Hex everywhere across the room. They eventually stopped and he took deep breaths.]
Hex: You… haven’t won yet! I still have the Ergaleío of Despair! I still control every spirit living on this planet! I am invincible!!!
[The Ergaleío of Despair went flying into Hex’s hands, and the dozens of Echo Echos screamed their echo chamber attack together.]
Echo Echo's: ECHO-ECHO-ECHO-ECHO!
[Hex covered his ears, and noticed the Ergaleío of Despair began to shatter.]
Echo Echo's: ECHO-ECHO-ECHO-ECHO! ECHO-ECHO-ECHO-ECHO!
[The Ergaleío of Despair shattered, and Hex tried powering himself up.]
Echo Echo's: ECHO-ECHO-ECHO-ECHO!!!
[Hex screamed and a sonic boom sent flying Hex into the ground at fast speed. Hex created a giant impact on the ground, and it created a cloud of dust. The cloud of dust faded and Hex was unconscious with his arms and legs spread out. Meanwhile, outside Hollywood Hills, the spirits began going back into the ground. The purple clouds surrounding the sky began to clear away, and daylight shone down. Outside a family’s house, the spirits went back into the ground. Meanwhile, outside Museum Ultima, souls went flying back into the officers bodies. The officers had awakened and realized they were okay, and began to cheer. Back inside Sha’Rrow’s lair, the Echo Echo’s formed back into one and flew down to the group as everyone cheered for him.]
Nikki, Alice: Woo!!!
Hannibal: Yeah! We finally managed to defeat Hex!
Terence, Lieutenant Steel: About time!
Ethan: Nice work, Echo Echo.
[The song ended. Ethan raised out his hand for Echo Echo to shake. But before he could make any sudden movements, Echo Echo’s body began to sparkle around him.]
Ethan: Echo Echo?
[Echo Echo’s body spreaded into particles until eventually he disappeared from existence.]
A'taenda: A Sonorosian can only stay out of their containment suits for so long on specific planets before their bodies destabilize. And given that Hex removed from him the Omnitrix…
Ethan: That means… Echo Echo is gone...
Hannibal: Echo Echo sacrificed himself to save all of us.
Lieutenant Steel: Not just all of us, but the entire planet.
[Everyone looked down, and Ethan looked at the Omnitrix.]
Ethan: Echo Echo was my most powerful transformation and I didn’t even know it.
[Ethan turned around, facing the others as gave them a smile.]
Ethan: Echo Echo's sacrifice was not in vain. Let’s all remember what he did for us. He gave us the fighting chance we needed to defeat Hex once and for all.
[Everyone looked up and smiled.]
Lieutenant Steel: He’s right. Echo Echo did a lot of us, it’s only fair we honor him.
Hannibal: You know, he may have been small, but he always manage to pull through for us.
Terence: If it wasn’t for him, we would’ve been dead 6 months ago.
Nikki: Even with that loud mouth of his, he sure was something.
Alice: We’ll miss you, Echo Echo!
[Ethan turned back around, and looked at the last of his particles disappearing into the sky.]
Ethan: So long, old friend.
[To Ethan’s surprise, the Omnitrix began beeping and flashing yellow.]
A'taenda: Welp, that’s my cue!
Ethan: Hey, what?
[A'taenda climbed up Ethan, and removed the Omnitrix from Ethan’s wrist.]
A'taenda: There, that should stop it!
Ethan: Wait, what are you doing?
A'taenda: Well now that your Sonorosian DNA sample has been removed, I have to completely fix the Omnitrix by hand, and especially to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.
Ethan: I’m sorry…
A'taenda: Oh, don’t you beat yourself up kid. Relax, you have proven your worth as the Omnitrix bearer. You may have caused this problem, but you managed to fix it on your own. That’s just what like a Planchakule does, they break their valuables and they do everything they can to FIX-FIX-FIX things! You did good work today, kid. Now, if you may excuse me, I’m off to my home planet, until we meet again!
[A'taenda tapped her belt buckle and she transported off in a green light. The song shifted.]
Ethan: Wait, does that mean my powers are gone?! Oh, man! I don’t want to return back to my normal life!
Hannibal: Hey, don’t worry, man. You still have us to hang with!
Lieutenant Steel: And there’s always a place for you at the SACT. You are still a part time agent after all, and everything we’ve been through, I see there’s no reason to kick you out just yet.
Ethan: Thanks! Wait a minute, Hannibal… Does that mean?
Hannibal: Yeah, we’re cool again.
Terence: After all, Alice heard your little speech when you went up against Hex and Sha’Rrow. She told us everything and caught us up to speed.
[Ethan’s eyes widened as he turned to a smiling Alice.]
Nikki: Look, just because you kept something from us, doesn’t mean we’re going to let you off easy. But don’t bring yourself down about it either, we’re always going to be your friends, Ethan. It’s not like we’re going to abandon you or anything. Didn’t the Gary Stew situation teach you anything?
Ethan: Ugh! Quit reminding me that happened! I hate hearing about that guy.
Lieutenant Steel: Alright kids, let’s take you guys back to campus. After all, you got a lot of studying to do if you’re gonna pass your exams. Meanwhile, my team and I have got a lot of cleaning up to do.
[They began walking down the hill. The song shifted.]
Nikki: How are you going to clean this up?
Lieutenant Steel: Don’t worry, we have our ways.
[Ethan grabbed Alice by the shoulder, and she turned to them.]
Ethan: So, Alice. You heard everything, huh…
Alice: Yeah… I did.
Ethan: Even the part about-
Ethan: I uhh... [Blushing] Wow, I have no idea what to say right now.
Alice: I do.
[Alice walked up to Ethan.]
Alice: I think what you did there was the sweetest thing you’ve ever said.
[Alice kissed Ethan on the lips as his face turned red. He shut his eyes and kissed back. Everything zoomed up into the sky as the sun was shining on the screen. The song ended.]
ONE WEEK LATER...
[Everything transitioned to outside the Horizon campus. We zoomed down to see that buses and cars were parked outside as people were stepping inside, while others were waiting for their rides. A bus pulled in front of a few students and Alice. Alice stood up and grabbed her luggage. Nikki, Terence and Hannibal were standing beside him.]
Alice: Welp, guess my bus is here.
Nikki: We’re going to miss you, Alice!
Alice: Don’t worry, I’ll be back in 3 months!
Terence: Good, because if you don’t, you won’t hear the end of it from me.
Nikki: Are you sure you don’t wanna stick around for the summer?
Alice: If I do, I won’t hear the end of it from my mom. Oh well, maybe next summer. But wait, Terence, you don’t actually live here?
Terence: Yeah, but I actually want a break from my parents. Unlike you all, I’ll be busy taking other courses over the summer. That and I’ll be traveling to Europe.
Alice: Wow, that’s cool.
Hannibal: So, Alice, what are you going to do?
Alice: I don’t know, probably improve my writing skills. I know I have a lot to do if I’m going to become a great writer. Thank you guys, you’ve really turned my life around over the last year, and now… I can’t wait to see what next year is going to be like!
Hannibal: Me too… Although, after all the alien attacks it’s going to be nice to finally relax for a while.
Nikki: I’ll say. I get to soak up the sun and visit my Hanny-boo everyday.
Terence: Boy, I’m going to throw up… [Gulps]
Alice: Hey, speaking of which, where is Ethan?
Nikki: Oh he said he couldn’t make it. He wanted to start the summer early so he rushed on home a few hours ago.
Hannibal: Same old Ethan. He could’ve at least stayed to say goodbye.
Alice: Yeah, I’ll just give him crap about it over text. I‘m going to give him one hell of a guilt trip.
Terence: Oh boy...
Nikki: Take care, Alice!
Alice: You too!
[Alice stepped onto the bus and the bus began taking off as Hannibal, Terence and Nikki waved goodbye. Meanwhile, at Ethan’s house, Ethan arrived inside and threw his bag onto the couch.]
Voice: HEY, IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU GOT HERE!
[Ethan recognized the voice and ran to it’s direction. Ethan entered his room, with At’aenda standing on his bed.]
A'taenda: Finally you made it! I was wondering where you were.
Ethan: A'taenda? What are you doing here?
A'taenda: I teleported here, but that’s not important. Check this out!
[A'taenda turned around grabbed a device from the side, and turned back to the front to reveal to Ethan she had a new Omnitrix waiting for him. The design had more golden features and a new dial laid onto it.]
Ethan: The Omnitrix? I thought you were never going to give it back after I busted the thing and nearly destroyed the entire planet!
A'taenda: Are you kidding me?! You may be reckless, but you humans sure are interesting.
Ethan: Haha, well I am- Wait, what?
A'taenda: You’re a unique guy, Ethan. You managed to fix your mistake, while others would have just sat back and done nothing. You are probably the best candidate to bear the Omnitrix, Ethan. I believe there’s more good you can do with it than anyone else.
Ethan: Really, sweet!
[Ethan bent over, and A'taenda strapped the new Omnitrix on Ethan’s wrist.]
A'taenda: And, since Echo Echo’s no longer on the active list, I thought this would interest you.
[A'taenda dialed up a new alien icon on the active list. The icon revealed to be a long-necked figure standing on all fours.]
Ethan: Whoa, no way! A new alien?! Oh I’ve got to try this out!
A'taenda: Then what are you waiting for?!
Ethan: It’s Action Time!
[Ethan stood up and activated the Omnitrix’s core. He raised up his hand and slammed down with a light blinding the screen. The song shifted.]
[Meanwhile, Alice was sitting on the bus in an empty seat, as she finished an angry text she sent to Ethan. She looked to the side of the window and watched the buildings go by. Suddenly, she saw XLR8 ran past by her, and gasped. Alice raised the window down, and the others gasped at XLR8. XLR8 raised his visor, smiling and waved to her.]
Alice: Thanks for everything!!!
[XLR8 stopped as Alice’s bus left the road into the interstate. XLR8 became surrounded in green orbs and transformed back into Ethan.]
Ethan: This is going to be the best summer of my life!
[Ethan raised his fist and everything panned up to the sun as it shined brightly at the screen.]
