We're back on the Frontier track for Duskmon's intro and the Sakkakumon arc! The kids get trounced by EmoEyeballmon, Takuya tries to play hooky, the side characters finally get some development, and then are quickly forgotten once Takuya and Koji get some main-character-exclusive evolutions.

In this episode, we compare Takuya's homecoming episode with Tai's in Adventure, discuss imagery of darkness and reflection, speculate about alternative Frontier leaders, and analyze the bizarrely consistent theme underlying almost all of the kids' character development.
