Continuing with our recap of Amphibia, season two saw the show leave the confines of Frog Valley and show us the world of Amphibia at large. As Anne and the Plantar’s look for a way to get her home, they embark on adventures that they can’t even begin to imagine…and heartbreak that will haunt them forever…
In the season finale to Amphibia, Anne and the others are finally able to return home. However, when Sasha and Grime reveal their plans, a series of revelations shatters the world of Amphibia like never before as things are changed forever.
Okay, I’ve been saying this for close to a year now, but I need the soundtrack for Amphibia on ITunes! And I need it now, because this show’s got some crazy awesome beats to it. But before I go all fanboy, it’s important to note that this is the penultimate episode to the second season of Amphibia. On the surface, it may look like another light-hearted episode. However, when you remember the fact that the season finale will likely see Sasha turn on Anne once more, possibly even Marcy, then it makes this episode all the more heartbreaking. It’s the final moments that Anne, Sasha, and Marcy will likely have as friends for a long time before things get really, really dark.
Ever since the show started, fans have been waiting for the moment when Anne, Sasha, and Marcy would reunite. Thus far, it hasn’t failed to disappoint. Anne and Sasha’s reunion was tragically bittersweet with both sides gaining their own scars. In contrast, Anne and Marcy’s reunion was far more joyous, with the two’s friendship as strong as ever. However, that’s nothing compared to what we wanted to get out of the reunion of what I’m calling the “Amphibia Human Trio.” And this episode managed to deliver on that, even if it wasn’t as long as I wanted it to be.
I hope that everyone got their fill of wholesome in the last two weeks of Amphibia, because that ends this week as the show hops back into the overarching story. As Anne, Marcy, and the Plantar’s journey to the second temple, Anne comes to terms with her past mistakes and showcases some serious growth as a person. Meanwhile, Sasha has the chance to see how she needs to change, only to cast it aside and isolate herself even further.
