That wasn’t the ending I wanted or expected, but it wasn’t bad. How Evil is the 13th episode of Cells At Work?
Cells at Work
Studio: David Production
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
I think it’s obvious that I wanted Cancer to be included in the ending. He wasn’t, but right now I don’t care. That was an okay ending. Not only did they raise the stakes considerably, but they also gave Red a major part to play. And boy she protagged like a boss. I do have a few questions though. How is this body still alive after everything that keeps happening to it? Also, just how unlucky do you have to be to have all of these problems? I know, I know, that doesn’t even matter to the story but, dangit, now I’m curious.
Where was I? Oh yeah, the episode… Well, we finally know what happened to all those missing red blood cells that disappeared. White found a cell that told him everything that happened. The head wound sucked the red blood cells out of the body, causing the number of red blood cells to drop to an extremely low number. In other words, the body suffered major blood loss. And when I say major, I mean zillions of them are gone.
To make things even worse, the body loses even more when the cells in charge decide to crank up the blood pressure to speed up the red blood cells. With a low supply of red blood cells, the body is dying slowly. If you’re wondering what the end of the cell world looks like, just think of an ice age. With the world freezing over, there is little hope for survival.
This is where Red comes in. Red and her underling are still delivering oxygen even with the world crumbling around them. They’re acting a lot like the United States Postal service. What was their motto again? “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” Yeah, that fits. Just look at their determined faces.
That determination doesn’t last though. Red and her underling end up being some of the only red blood cells still delivering oxygen left in the body. And in the frozen wasteland that was once their home, they die… Yeah, this isn’t Cells At Work Black. The Duo is saved by a blood transfusion at the very last second. Honestly, I was dreading that they would actually die this episode. I’m so glad it worked out this way. I do have to say this wasn’t as good as it could’ve been. Some might take it a bit further.
The transfusion was kind of silly. The new red blood cells looked and acted a bit differently than the ones they replaced. I think the word I’m looking for is eccentric. At the end of the day, they combined forces and saved the body. It’s kind of funny what the transferred cells thought of their own situation. They had no idea how or why they got there.
Overall I’d say this episode was about as Evil as a Super Villian! (10). I can tell the end of the season review is gonna be tough. I’d say this whole series is the same rank as well. This is gonna leave me with a tough choice come time to choose my number one of this season. If you’re looking for an interesting read check out Voyager’s Happily Ever After Editorial. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
