"The Night Before" (8/17/02)
The first episode of the new season starts with Yugi, Joey, Mai, Bandit Keith, Tristen, Tai, and Bakura in the Pegasus's Castle. One of the henchmen explain to the finalists that they must have one of two cards to duel in the finals, "Glory of the King's Hand" or "Glory of the King's Opposite Hand". The King's Hand is needed if one wants the 3 million dollar prize the Opposite Hand is for dueling Pegasus for the championship. As we all know, Joey has neither card because he wasn't suposed to be in the tournament but Yugi helped him out to get him in, and once again Yugi is of course going to give Joey one of his cards, The Glory of the King's Hand so that Joey can get the money for his sister. Bandit Keith also has neither card and needs to acquire one somehow. An eyeball appeared in everyone's soup, and in the eye, a letter. The letter determines who will duel who. Yugi will duel Mai, and Joey will duel Bandit Keith.
After dinner, everyone heads to their respected rooms, but not everyone intends on sleeping. Joey is sound asleep. But Tristen and Bakura head to Taia's room and find her not sleeping either. They believe that Pegasus is a cheater and cheats in his duels. They intend to go search for a way to expose Pegasus, so they head to the Duelist Platform. They find a small hole in the wall and moonlight is shining through. Its lined up so that the moonlight would hit cards if somone was holding them standing on the platform while dueling. Across from the hole is a tower with a window facing the hole in which they gang decides to investigate. They scale the wall of the tower and enter through the top. Once inside, they find a giant painting of a mysterious lady, the same picture they saw in the dining hall. They are then discovered by Pegasus! He uses his Millenium Eye that sends them to a temple, where they hear chanting. The room is filled with hooded people, two of them dueling with giant stone cards, one of them is Pegasus. The three are soon discovered. Pegasus explains that every soul he sends to the shadow realm increases the power of his millenium eye. His goal is to be able to control life over death. He attempts to send them to the shadow realm with his millenium eye, but is in shock when Bakura's Millenium Ring stops him. The dark Bakura remains, and stops Pegasus and he makes everyone forget what happened.
Meanwhile, Yugi hears his grandfather and follows his voice, which is telling him to beware of Pegasus and his shadow powers. Yugi finds his grandpa's soul card in a courtyard along with the soulcards of Mokuba and Kaiba. They all warn him of Pegasus. His grandpa explains that Yugi must learn how to harness the power of his Millenium Puzzle. The three stone pillars which the soul cards were on are then engulfed in a white flame. Then Yugi wakes up and realizes it was a dream.
Mai is busy fixing her deck to arrange it for the best strategy. And Bandit Keith sneaks into Joey's room (after he returns from his adventure and is sleeping) to take his card. He is almost caught, with Joey's mumbling in his dream, but Bandit Keith easily eludes Joey. Next week we shall se the first part of the finals. stay tuned...... - AceX88
Episode 26- Preparation
Yu-gi-oh episode appeared on Saturday, August 17, 2002.
"The show begins with a banquet and Yugi, Tristan, Tea, Joey, Bakura, Bandit Keith and Mia seated at the table. Eyeballs, much like Pegasus's right eye, float to the surface of the soup of the four competitors: Joey, Yugi, Keith and Mia. They all contain slips of paper with a letter on them. The letters decide who faces whom in the mini-tournament. This tourney, explains Pegasus's henchman, has a grand prize of the honor of facing Pegasus himself. That is, if the winner has "The King's Opposite Hand" (I don't remember the exact name). This special card is completely blank, and resembles the soul cards that Pegasus has trapped Kaiba and Grandpa and Mokuba in. The other special card, "The King's Hand," is required for winning the 3 million dollars. It is just a bunch of treasures and gold, interesting to look at, but not nearly as mysterious as the Opposite Hand. A screen floats down from the ceiling (that happens alot in animes, I've noticed), and displays a graph indicating Yugi playing Mia, and Joey playing Keith. Joey is upset because he has neither card so he cannot win the $3M to save his sister. Yugi gives him the King's Hand but keeps The Opposite Hand for himself.
They all go to their rooms inside the castle. Yugi is awakened (or dreams) by his grandfather and follows his voice to a sanctuary where the souls of Grandpa, Kaiba and Mokuba reside. Grandpa tells Yugi about Pegasus's plan and how he gets more power for every soul he traps. He adds that Pegasus will rule the world if he gets all seven Millennium items. He has so much power with one item already, imagine what would happen if he gets Yugi's, or Bakura's, or all of them! Grandpa commands Yugi to learn as much as possible about his Puzzle before his match with Pegasus, for that is his only chance to win.
Tea is up in her room, complaining to herself how it's her first night in a real bed and she can't sleep. There's a knock on the door and Bakura and Tristen pull Tea outside. Tristen suspects foul play on Pegasus's part, and the trio go investigate the dueling field, where they discover a hole in the wall, just big enough for a person on a tower outside to peep in and see Pegasus's opponent's cards. They hypothesize that Pegasus gets the message by a receiver hidden under his hair. (They're half right, the tool he uses _is_ under his hair, but it's not a receiver.) The only way to be sure, Tristen decides is to go up to the tower and find out. They leave the field, but not before noticing a picture of a woman on the wall--the same woman who was on the wall of the Dining Hall next to the painting of Shadi (Egyptian looking guy with the Millennium Ankh).
When they get up to the tower they see no telescope or peeping paraphernalia. But they _do_ notice another painting of that strange woman. Pegasus enters the room and reviles his special eye. The colours of the scene turn purple and red while the floor melts below the Tristen and the others. They are sent to the shadow realm, where they see the ancient Shadow Games being played, between Pegasus and some guy in a robe. Pegasus has a stone tablet with a BEWD on it. They see that same picture of the strange woman. The trio is spotted, but when confronted by Pegasus, Yami Bakura awakens and (perhaps with an ulterior motive) saves them from Pegasus and erases their memory--though not entirely. They still remember a bit, but think it might be a dream. Yami Bakura is now awakened for good, and remains to live inside Bakura. So ends the most exciting scene in the episode.
Mia fine-tunes her deck and adds several new tricks, because she knows Yugi knows her deck almost as well as she does. Bandit Keith works out how in the world he will manage to get The King's Hand. He decides and slips into Joey's room. He steals Joey's card out of his pocket while Joey lies there, dreaming about incredible donuts and capered pizzas.
Yugi ends the show asking himself how he will go about mastering his Puzzle."
