Recap / Marvels Spider Man S 3 E 4 Spider Man Unmasked

Go To

  • The Bad Guy Wins: Dr. Connors successfully gets Max fired from Horizon and takes over the school. He even has Spider-Man banned from entering school grounds.
  • Death Glare: Gwen and Anya do this together to Miles, suspecting that he knew all along that Peter is Spider-Man. Miles being a Bad Liar to defend himself didn't help things.
  • Hate Sink: Dr. Conners officially wanders into this territory. He destroys any hope of Max's name being cleared and exposes Peter as Spider-Man to the school board.

  • Internal Reveal: At long last, Gwen and Anya found out Peter is Spider-Man.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: His attitude may be uncouth, but Connors has a point that Peter's prescience in Horizon High has attracted a lot of trouble which make Max unfit to run the place as principal.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Miles telling Gwen and Anya about Peter stopping Rhino before switching it to Spider-Man has led to Dr. Connors putting two and two together the secret which led to the reveal to them and Max getting fired from Horizon High.
    • Of course it's not directly confirmed if he already knew beforehand.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Dr. Connors does this thrice: one when he found out Peter is Spider-Man from eavesdropping Miles' conversation with Gwen and Anya on who is pursuing Rhino; second when Spider-Man unmasks himself to be Peter Parker; and third when he gained the position of intern principal from Max.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: The Head Administrator is willing to keep Spider-Man’s identity a secret and allows Peter to continue attending Horizon so long as he isn’t seen in costume on school grounds.

  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: After having Max ousted from Horizon High, Dr. Connors is given full control of the school.
  • Wham Episode: Spider-Man’s Secret Identity as Peter Parker is finally revealed to Gwen and Anya, as well as to Horizon’s school board. Max is fired from his job and Dr. Connors becomes the new principal of Horizon High.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gwen and Anya are at first not happy at all with Peter for not trusting them with keeping his Spider-Man identity a secret. Especially since he fought with villains directly by their side.
