Alien Von Stalker, bart. says he needs more time to figure out where the weapon is being built. He puts his hands back on the Egg of Erised, and I notice that his hands don't have fingers. They're like lobster claws -- he might have a third digit in there, but they look as awkward as his voice sounds. Hoshi asks about the Egg of Erised, and Alien Von Stalker, bart. tells her it's his telepathic antenna. His parents gave it to him when he was exiled, and he used it to find Hoshi. I can see that thing breaking during a routine dusting. He offers to let Hoshi try it with his guidance. Right, "guidance." Alien Von Stalker, bart. hands her the Egg of Erised. Now I can see his hands more clearly -- he's got a thumb, a forefinger, and a middle finger. However, what would be his ring finger and pinky are fused together as one. Circus freak. As Hoshi's hands touch the orb, it glows blue. However, it's really more like it blinked on blue, which really detracts from the magic. The effects people should have had it gradually swirl up to a blue, not just make it look like they turned on a nightlight. Alien Von Stalker, bart. gives her some instructions on using the Egg. Hoshi sees lots of images from past episodes -- over forty scenes, but they went by way too fast for me to conjecture if they showed a shot representing every episode they've aired in the last two years. The first one is the Earth shot in the opening credit sequence, and the last one is a Snake Eyes looking right at her. Hoshi gasps and opens her eyes. She asks how Alien Von Stalker, bart. makes sense of everything. "It takes practice," he tells her, putting his other hand over hers. "Try again." Hoshi pulls away and says, "Maybe later." Maybe never, freakazoid. Hoshi leaves him to his work, and Alien Von Stalker, bart. invites her to return if she'd like some company.
