After a rewatch I think this is actually a very strong episode of the Venture Bros.

The Saw stuff was great and a really fun sideplot that kept this viewer intrigued. It also brings back the idea that Billy thinks Rusty is the Blue Morpho - whjich I had thought was sloppily dropped from earlier on in the season (shows what I know!) I hope this has a fun payoff in the future finale/premiere.

Killing the Blue Morpho is now Dr. Mrs. personal mission which, I think, serves as a nice cliffhanger-esque tag for our future wrap-up episode. I can't see how her relationship with the Monarch will end amicably.

Red Death was a great new villain. And I enjoyed the idea that maybe the Monarch should just finally kill the Ventures. I know he's tried in the past (and failed) but it was always clear Dr. Venture's death would ruin him. Will he now want to kill Dr. Venture to give himself some peace? It may never come up again but I liked that the episode dealt with the idea of the Monarch's obsession from a different angle.

The introduction of fake team Venture I think was the highlight of the season.

*Sick reference alert*: Red Death mentions the marionette the Monarch made to arch Rusty! We saw this back in the episode "Self-Medication!"

Also, even though Doc and Jackson told the reading public that Red Means Stop was, no means, the heart stopping finale we would want it's still totally acceptable that viewers feel let down for not getting their big finale. Their reasons are sound and completely understandable in my opinion but there is an expectation when it comes to seasons of television - particularly when the plot is as serialised as Season 6's was - and this season failed to meet it. The creators obviously wanted to give us a finale but people are still allowed to be upset that the momentum has just halted for an indeterminate amount of time.

I'm personally not upset because the same thing happened with Season 5. We eventually got our Gargantua-2 special.

However, I hope they've ordered an extra 2 episodes for Season 7 so we can avoid this knock on effect for a third time!

"I can't see how her relationship with the Monarch will end amicably."

Oh, actually, I think she will find it an incredible turn on since she will see him as more competent, dangerous, everything she wants The Monarch[!--Ed.] to be.

Remember, she found Hamilton--Phantom Limb--boring. She left him for The Monarch[!--Ed.] way back and returned to him when he agreed to be a partner and, later, fought to get her back. I think she will love the challenge.

Nice thing is, if I am wrong, it will be about two or even more years before we find out!

I don't think so. He's been killing high ranking members of the Guild. She was pissed when he killed protagonists in Season 3. Also, she wanted Phantom Limb to be more villainous but she wasn't impressed when he killed his buyer.

I still want to see Gary get laid by Dr. Girlfriend. Maybe as revenge sex, or so the Monarch can watch? I think he's into that.
