Recap / Static Shock S 4 E 3 Out Of Africa

Go To

Sharon and Virgil reunite with Dr. Akoye from "Static in Africa," and help him set up an exhibit. Unknown to them, he sneaks an amulet into Sharon's bag before the Osebo the Leopard attacks him. Anansi returns, and explains he needs the amulet to fuel his powers. They need to find it before Osebo does, and save Sharon.

Tropes for this episode include

  • Bavarian Fire Drill: Anansi disguises himself and Static as doctors so they can talk to the hospitalized Akoye after visiting hours. Surprisingly, it works!
  • Advertisement:
  • Damsel in Distress: Osebo and Onnini kidnap Sharon for the amulet.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: Richie assumes that Osebo is tiger-themed because of the stripes. Virgil corrects him, while Anansi admits he wondered the same thing.
  • Hastily Hidden MacGuffin: Sharon finds the amulet in her coat pocket after Dr. Akoye slips it in there.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: Anansi uses the last of his illusion powers to create dozens of spider amulets to confuse Osebo and give Static an opening to attack.
  • Something We Forgot: Sharon only realizes she forgot the dishes when her father calls her and says she's doing them for a month.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Both Richie and Anansi wonder why Osebo is leopard-themed and has stripes.

How well does it match the trope?
