So we made it to the season finale, I have bitter sweet, I am so excited, but said that means no new episodes for a while, though season 3 started about a month after season 2 ended, so you never know, this might not be a long wait.
So the time has come for the Pet Fest, an event organized by Blythe to celebrate the union between pets and their owners, an idea that wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for "Secret Recipe", so yes that is paying off. While Blythe prepares for the pet fest, we have a celebrity guest camper, the pet of Jason 1 from the Soul patches named Heidi, well Heidi disrupt things at the day camp, will the Pet Fest be a go, only one way to find out.
Before we go I will try to skimp through the recap because it is a two parter, not to mention this is the season finale, you all should watch it instead of me spoiling it line for line.
We begin at LPS with Blythe and Youngmee via video phone thinking of ideas for the Pet Fest when a man with a beagle shows up, the man turns out to be the manager of Blythe favorite band the Soul Patches, and the beagle is one of the members of the bands pet, and Blythe reacts in fan girl fashion screaming so loud that he breaks the managers sunglasses, but he has several. We find out that the beagle who calls herself Heidi is a very excitable pet, I like her already. Cue the opening.
The episode begins proper with Blythe and Heidi and discovering Heidi's owner named Jason number 1 does charity work for the endanger species cause, and Blythe decides to use that as the charity for Pet Fest, the other pets are introduced to Heidi and Blythe tells them about her pet, and they all encourage to ask Jason number 1 in person, and the pets give her confidence to do so.
Blythe talks to Jason number 1, and she is scared at first, Youngmee can't even move without meowing, meanwhile at LPS the pets are trying to figure what they can do for Pet Fest, Blythe finally overcomes her fear and talks to him, while the pets are still thinking of ideas for Pet Fest, Zoey thinks they should form a band and she be the lead singer, which is a good idea, that is her talent, Blythe continues to try to ask for Jason number 1's help, she finally does and agrees, but than the jealous Biskit twins show up and complicates things a bit, but Jason number 1 Blythe and the twins are working together and Blythe decides to go along with it, because the Biskits could get a permit for the park, so things are looking good, but Blythe make the mistake of depending the Biskits and not supervising them to make sure they do their part, even if the Biskits aren't antagonist, they aren't very dependable, Blythe should know better. But there is a hilarious scene of after being hugged by Jason number 1, Blythe and the twins all scream like fan girls, Blythe and the same twins on the same page, never thought I see the day, it is so surreal.
Blythe relies on the Biskits to get a permit, but predictable they blow it off because they think because they are Biskits they need a permit, dam it Blythe, as much as I blame the twins, I also blame Blythe, she should know better. Blythe discusses her ideas for Pet Fest with the pets and they are all excited, until Blythe find out from their manager she has a two week deadline. A tough assignment but Blythe pulls her friends both human and animal to help put the show together, and we meet get a music montage with the Soul Patches. Things are looking good until Blythe finds out about the Biskits not getting the permit for the park. Who didn't see that coming, though we get in my opinion some character development moment from the Biskits, they admitted they screwed up, first of all that surprised me, I thought their reaction would be to say whatever and walk off, and secondly they admitted they screwed up that is not in character of them, the Biskits think themselves as perfect, so that is character development for them at least. Anyway part 1 ends with things not looking good.
Part 2 begins with a recap of part 1, cue the show opening. We begin with Blythe trying to be calm, but freaking out, so much that she scares everyone. Than we get a hilarious scene with Youngmee telling the Blythe that the Biskits are sorry and when the Biskits are confused by that, Youngmee grawls at them and they say they are sorry, hilarious. Blythe asks the twins to ask their dad to find new place for Pet Fest, but Fisher refuses because he choices this time to put this foot down and teach his daughters responsibilities, bad timing for trying to be a good parent Fisher to show up. Blythe tries to figure out another place for Pet Fest, Mrs. Twombry suggest the Pawza Hotel, and Blythe having not learned lesson asks the Biskits to let everyone the changing of the locations, I tell you if the Biskits mess up this time it is all on Blythe, the old saying fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, so if the Biskits let Blythe down again it is Blythe's fault for depending on them.
We have another little montage of Blythe and the pets going over plans for the Pet Fest. We arrive the day of the Pet Fest at least, and to my surprise everyone knows about the new location, the Biskits came threw for once. Blythe and the pets are preparing for Pet Fest, Zoey being a total diva, Blythe and Russell have a funny scene talking about clip boards, Blythe runs into Madison in the elevator and we see all the rooms for the Pet Fest.
The guests arrive, and things are looking up as we have a montage of everyone having fun until we find out that Blythe forgot to put a stage for the Soul Patches. That problem is fixed, when they decide to use the roof top which was Madison's idea, who knew she had some good ideas, Blythe even says that. Meanwhile Zoey is totally going all diva as she really wants to impress Heidi. But things aren't going well for her, meanwhile Vinnie and Sunil makes sure the endanger species are safe. Those guys are awesome.
Everything is looking good for the show, until we find out Soul Patches can't perform on the roof top because one of them has a fear of heights. Blythe is freaking out again, but Youngmee being the awesome that she is reminds Blythe when things were looking down other people helped, but Blythe tells her there is no one left, who is going to help the Biskits, than Blythe gets an idea. Blythe contacts them telling them that the Soul Patches need them, hearing that they agree to help.
Zoey continues to be her diva self, but a bump on the head does calm her down and gets an idea, while Vinnie and Sunil continue to be awesome secret service agents, Blythe's idea is to put the Biskits on a higher roof top so the Soul Patch member wouldn't be afraid of heights, since he is not on the top floor, I don't know if that makes sense or not, but whatever, anyway it is a good way for the Biskits to have their redemption moment.
We get to the show and see the Soul Patches and the pets band perform at the same time and perform a song about the relationship about the pets and their owners, very awesome song.
In the end things work out, as Pet Fest raised a lot of money for the endanger species charity, Blythe gives speech thanking everyone that helped, but Blythe feels she forgot something, we cut to the roof top and see the Biskits are still there, looks like everyone forgot about them, oh well, the end. End of episode, end of season 3.
This was a great finale, was it epic not really, but it was enjoyment, it felt connected a lot of stuff from the season, which I like in a season finale, have a payoff to stuff you build up.
Yes Blythe was awesome here, she with the help of friends both human and pet put on this celebration for the bond between pets and pet owners. I loved how she was able over come her fan girl nervousness with the Soul Patches to get them to take part in the pet fest.
As for the pets, I love Heidi awesome guest camper, she reminds a bit of Sugar Sprinkles. And of course Zoey going to do overdue with being a diva, because that is what Zoey does. It was awesome that the pets through their own concert, though it gave me nightmare flashback to the Cosmic Toast Studios LPS web shorts since the web short is about the pets forming a band. Cool to see a lot of past pets, though we could have used more, where was Sugar Sprinkles, I know she might not have an owner but still, also some of my other favorites like Madam Pom, though Mary Francis was there, so yay.
Great that Blythe got help from everyone she knew, we even got Cora back, not to mention Sophie and Madison, Madison was funny in these episodes, and of course Youngmee, she is the co creator of the pet fest, so of course I can't forget her.
And Blythe even got help from the Biskits of all people, about time they pay her back for all the times Blythe has helped them out, but I don't know how to describe their role, they weren't antagonist, but not that emotionally invested in Blythe's cause, but they proved they are unreliable allies, so with allies like them who needs enemy. I blame Blythe as much as I blame the twins for their screw ups, I mean Blythe should know better than to rely on them, especially the second time, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, though they did come true the second time as people did know the location of the Pet Fest had been changed, so off screen the Biskits did do something right. And we got a Cashmere and Velvet cameo, perhaps they are regretting their life choice. I thought going into this episode, if the Biskits are in these episodes, their role would be Fisher Biskits thinks the Pet Fest is another LPS publicity stunt and the Biskit family try to sabotage it. So yes their role surprised me.
I don't know if I would call this redemption for the Biskits, it is not the level of Pacifica Northwest redemption in the "Northwest Mansion Noir", but I will say they should some development, the end of part 1 when they admitted they screwed up, that surprised me, that is a major development for them, the Biskits always thought of themselves as perfect, to admit they screwed up and take down the we can do no wrong, we are perfect wall, that is big. It is not "Northwest Mansion Noir", but maybe it is "Golf War", if I quote a line from that episode, it is some progress.
Vinnie and Sunil being bodyguard to endangered species, that so hilarious, I wonder if the indented audience know what endanger species are.
And the songs at the end, Daniel Ingram again delivers.
Anyone notice one of the bands names was Adam and the Spider Monkeys, obvious an inside joke to the creators of the show other series My Gym Partner Is A Monkey.
The Pet Fest is here at least, all this build up and everything lives up to the hype
Heidi, an awesome guest camper, I liked her and wouldn't mind seeing her again.
Sunil and Vinnie as bodyguards
The songs, Dannel Ingram continues to be on his game.
Blythe, she was awesome in this episode. She was funny, but also proves to be a great leader, and mentioning Youngmee and the pets in her speech, great.
The Biskits not being antagonist, I thought if they were in this episode it would be to sabotage the Pet Fest which they do unintentionally, and them acknowledge they messed up, showed some character development, it is not Pacifica Northwest development, but still it is a start
Zoey's attitude though most of this episode, but it was part of the story, but still if I had to pick a negative.
Blythe keep depending on the Biskits, she should know better even if they are not trying to cause trouble, they still are unreliable, luckily it all worked out.
So much more to say, but if I said everything it would take for ever, but yeah great episode. 10 / 10. So till season 4, have a nice LPS day. I will mess this.
