Heat Stroke, huh? That sounds boring. Why would I even watch this? How Evil is the 11th episode of Cells at Work?
This was different. The story begins with what looks like a drought inside of the body. A once beautiful area looks like a desert and all the cells are being forced to march down some cramped tunnels to help remove heat. To make matter even worse, the system that produces sweat isn’t working at all. This means that the temperatures are only going to get higher. Red is stuck directly in the mess along with her senpai.
White even gets stuck in the tunnels when he chases a germ into the situation. He gets strung along with the rest of the cells in the effort to cool the body. This gets interrupted by a germ I’m just gonna call Troll-G. Troll-G is a fast-moving germ with a very good sense of humor. He spends the majority of the episode trolling White and any backup he calls for. It was actually kind of amusing watching Troll-G do his thing. I especially loved the way he got White to forget to keep himself hydrated and then taunted him for it.
With White weakened, Troll-G pretty much has free reign to do whatever he wants. White keeps trying but, in his condition, he can do little more than delay Troll-G. He does that until he gets thrown off a cliff. With the world on the brink of destruction, Troll-G celebrates prematurely. And that’s when hope appears.
From out of the sky comes what looks like the needle point of an IV? It releases water and other things the body needs to recover from the Heat Stroke, restoring it to a relatively normal state. Oh, one of the commanding cells actually tried to summon rain with a rain dance. The funny thing is that the IV showed up almost right after that. So does that mean it worked?
With the world saved, Troll-G is at a loss for words. It seems the world coming back to life wasn’t in his plans. He seemed a little out of it, watching all of the body’s cells rejoicing because of the new found moisture. He got even more distraught when someone grabbed one of his tentacles. Big Surprise it was White, apparently back from the dead.
White was less than happy about everything Troll-G had done. He emerged from a body of water like a terminator. Troll-G was so terrified that he couldn’t even think about fleeing for his life. We didn’t even get to see how White killed him but judging from the amount of blood Red saw, he overkilled him.
Overall I’d say this episode is about as Evil as a Super Villian! (10). I love how this show can take something that might sound boring and make it this entertaining. Hmm, two episodes left. Here’s hoping Cancer makes a glorious return. Oh and we’ve reached over 200 followers now! Go ahead and leave us some questions when you have the time. Todays the last day. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
