Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 42

Continuing on with the rewatch of Digimon Adventure for the Digimon subreddit in the leadup to the Digimon Adventure Reboot coming in April, here’s my Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 42 review!

Opening thoughts

I feel like my memory of this episode is completely merged with my memory of the previous episode.

“Under Pressure”

Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 42 Review

Continuing on from the last episode (but also, not, because the English dub actually takes this scene from the end of the last episode in the original release), Whamon shows up to carry the chosen away to safety to a distant island so they can rest and fish.

MetalSeadramon launches a search lead by himself and his Divermon henchmen.

On the island, Gomamon hears from his fish friends that Divermon have been seen hunting the chosen down. Whamon and the chosen escape and swims to a high pressure part of the ocean where Divermon are not able to follow with their oxygen tanks (which are part of them, body horror, much?).

MetalSeadramon follows them and Whamon surfaces. Agumon warp evolves to WarGreymon and the episode ends with MetalSeadramon trying to vore WarGreymon.

This cliffhanger, similar to how the previous episode ended with Whamon showing up to rescue the children, ends with Whamon’s sacrifice and MetalSeadramon’s defeat.
