Recap / Static Shock S 4 E 7 Now You See Him

Go To

  • All the Other Reindeer: At science summer camp Eddie was picked on by the other nerds.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Deconstruction. Eddie Felson met Daisy Watkins at science summer camp. He developed a crush on her because she was the only person at the camp that was kind to him. However, his crush on her becomes an unhealthy obsession, with him stalking her and stealing luxury items to give to her. What made it worse was it was implied from Daisy's reaction to seeing him again and from the way she talked about him is that she did not like him even as a friend and whatever kindness she ever showed him was out of pity.

  • Death by Secret Identity: Somewhat. Speedwarp discovers Static and Gear's secret identities, which he uses to blackmail them to not interfere with him or he'll reveal it to the public. In the end, Speedwarp gets his abilities inverted, causing him to slow to a snail's pace to the point he may not be moving, thus preventing him from revealing anything.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Eddie, who has abused the power of speed for the better part of the episode, ends up in his own time warp where he's slower than everything around him. It goes Up to Eleven when one bears in mind that what caused this to happen was Eddie stealing Static's own timewarp belt, despite Static's warning not to let the two timewarp devices get too close.
  • Mutually Unequal Relation: Implied. Eddie Felson met Daisy Watkins at science summer camp. She was the only person at the camp that was kind to him, so he developed a crush on her, which turned into an unhealthy obsession, with him stalking her and stealing luxury items to give to her. However, Daisy's reaction to meeting him again calls into question whether she was ever kind. While she does not hate him, Daisy was not happy to see Eddie again, and unhappy when she mentions she thinks she's seeing him again because he has a crush on her. And this was before she knew he was stalking her and stealing items to give to her. It should be noted that when Eddie revealed his powers to Daisy and mentions that she was the only one in camp that was kind to him, she did not deny that. However, it's possible she was only nice to him out of pity. Either way, it shows that Daisy does not truly like Eddie, and was glad he was defeated and out of her life for good.

  • Rule of Symbolism: Speedwarp slows down time so he can personally talk with Daisy and confess his feelings for her, symbolizing he wants to speed up their "relationship". Daisy says she just wants thing to go back to normal.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Eddie Felson.
