Still! The creators filled this episode with genuinely funny, awkward moments, coupled with a lot of action. Watching them dance around each other's emotions while trying to take public transit on a giant camel contrasted nicely with the more emotionally fraught scenes in the last two episodes. Genndy Tartakovsky and his team paid as much attention giving their closeups affection, nervousness, and warmth as they paid to the angry intensity you see in their eyes during fight scenes. Samurai Jack does The Notebook, but with hotter leads.
It didn't hurt that two big fight scenes distracted them, too. Venomous slugs chewing through Ashi's clothes felt like a bit much -- just as Jack's red-faced, stammering about how, "men and women are different" and "private things" felt like like a bit much, but at least Ashi called him out on the latter. But violence and peril threw them together in the first place. It's only fitting that they'd kill a stupid hive-mind slug monster and end up sweaty, breathing heavily, and too DTF for words -- or the classic will.i.am ending theme. Every couple has a song, and "Everybody Loves Somebody" hits "Jashi" squarely on the nose.
