If you’re new to the blog or just want to revisit from the beginning, click HERE to read the review for “Tourist Trapped”.
Previously on Gravity Falls: Twelve year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are spending the summer in Gravity Falls, Oregon, a little town where the strange and supernatural are almost everyday occurrences; Dipper and Mabel, usually along with their friends Soos and Wendy, have encountered everything from ghosts, zombies and demons to shapeshifters and time-travelers. One in particular has a bone to pick with the Mystery Twins after using him to mess with the space-time continuum…
“All right, but what I don’t get is how did the police know you were stuck in one of Stan’s weird displays?”
“It’s quite simple. You see, if my good friend President Trembley hadn’t spied our dear Miss Shelf in the Mystery Shack and informed me of her wrongful imprisonment, we wouldn’t have been able to alert the authorities and she would still be trapped in that glass tomb.”
I owe you both my life. One more round of tic-tac-toe with Mabel and I thought I’d lose my mind.
“Think nothing of it. Should you ever need my services again Miss Shelf, I am always happy to oblige.”
Thank you, Baron.
…Actually, there is something. You say you’re friends with Trembley?
“We do have opposing thoughts regarding the public visibility of knickers, but yes, I consider him a friend and ally.”
Would you be able to reach him quickly and deliver him here?
“Of course. Why do you ask?”
Trembley said he’d return when this country needed him most, and I’ve got a feeling that day’s not far off…it’s time to get ready.
Oh, wait. There’s a review to do first.
The episode opens in the year Twenty-sneventy…you know, I haven’t the courage to try to spell it. Here it is.
A shadowy figure dodges through the streets of a futuristic hellhole chased by Lolph and Dundgren, officers of the Time Police. They catch up to him and reveal the fugitive is former Time Officer Blendin Blandin, recently escaped from time prison after being incarcerated for wreaking havoc in the 21st century. Before he can be carted away, Blendin shocks those present by publicly invoking “Globnar”. The officers put away their handcuffs and ask who it is that Blendin wishes to challenge – Dipper and Mabel Pines.
