Recap / Jackie Chan Adventures S 3 E 2 The Powers Unleashed

Go To

Valmont's enforcers and Daolon Wong simultaneously go to Section 13 to get the talismans. Jackie decides to destroy the talismans with a laser, but by doing so causes their powers to be unleashed and seek out new hosts; namely the 12 noble animals of the Chinese zodiac from which the powers originated. So, the hunt for the talismans begins all over again. Because Uncle imprisons Wong's Dark Chi Warriors, Daolon Wong turns the Enforcers into his new Dark Chi Warriors. The Chans quickly locate the first animal nearby, a dog hosting the power of Immortality, which Jade names Scruffy. After successfully stopping Wong and getting Scruffy back to Section 13, Uncle creates an anti-Dark Chi barrier so the noble animals, the rest of which are still to be found, can remain safe from Wong inside the vault until new vessels can be created to hold the powers.


This episode provides examples of:

  • Badass Adorable: Scruffy is a cute little dog with the power of immortality, so when Daolon Wong blasts him, he doesn't get a scratch on him. And the look on his face screams "you can't get rid of me that easily!"
  • Evil vs. Evil: The Enforcers end up in a struggle with Daolon Wong and his dark warriors when both break into Section 13 simultaneously.
  • Evolving Credits: The scrolling screen with the seven Demon Sorcerers and the Talismans has been replaced with the original Talisman screen from Season 1 (the demon screen will return for the final season). The Dark Hand screen also now is a still screen with just the Enforcers and no Valmont, and they turn into the Dark Chi Warriors and Daolon Wong comes down in front of them. The Pan'Ku box in the "tossing" screen has also had the original Talisman return to Jade's hand, and the three Enforcers take Hak Foo's place in the "Punch-out" scene.

  • Here We Go Again!: Jade sums it up that by destroying the talismans, Jackie started the Gotta Catch 'Em All quest all over again. She's ecstatic about it.
  • It Only Works Once: Upon encountering the Enforcer Dark Chi Warriors, Jackie asks if they can be imprisoned like the other warriors. Uncle comments there was only one mystic urn and it was filled.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Jackie shouts this when he realized that destroying the talismans was not a good idea.
  • No MacGuffin, No Winner: What Jackie attempts when he destroys the talismans. Too bad for him it doesn't work.
  • Reality Ensues: The constant traveling to find the Talismans and free the Demon Sorcerers, and repeated failures, has completely depleted the Dark Hand's fortune.
