Caesar’s backstory is explained in a flashback, which is a giveaway sign that he’s about to die. Sure enough, he does die, at the hands of Waamu. But before he dies, he manages to get the ring that includes the antidote for Jojo. That means that the poison rings should no longer be a problem for Jojo, and thus we’ve solved that little conundrum.
But Jojo and Lisa Lisa break out bawling over Caesar’s death. Jojo can’t even find where Caesar died, even though there is a super-obvious block shaped like a cross laying right in the middle of the room.
Sadly, I couldn’t get into Caesar’s death as much as those two did. However, I did think it was a rather good episode. I just don’t really care that Caesar died. He, like his grandfather, was disposable. The story about his father was nice and all, but it still couldn’t get me to feel a bit of sorrow that he was now gone. I actually was kind of glad he did die, since it made the episode better, rather than him crawling out saying, “I’m still alive!” and then pulling out some miracle attack to destroy Waamu.
Overall, it was a good episode, I don’t have any complaints.
