Time to discuss J.J. Abrams tv-series classic. No, wait! Wrong series  :p

Of course, we're still in Watership Down. Or better, UNDER Watership Down. This is a really good episode with a nice location within. I've heard, that other people criticized the crystals or ice or whatever hangs around down there. Both may really be unlogical. Well, I would say, we could connive this.

What's not so easy to connive, is the dialog between Hazel and Fiver, if the weasel could be around here. I mean, it must have left Watership Down through the same way, but why should it come back to this place?

Or do you see any logical reason for this? Maybe, I'm really overseeing something and isn't as unlogical as it seems.

However, this is not only a great episode, it's also one important one. Watership Down could sneak now into Efrafa, while Efrafa doesn't know the location of Watership Down. I think, this is done well. And of course, we have a very good location for the finale of the second season.

I don't have too much to say about this one. They find a way to get into Efrafa which helps develop the story for later. I used to have this episode in novel form. :D I remembered it being a big more interesting than it actually is! Good to include Hawkbit in their little adventure for a bit of variety from the usual two or three.

Alright, time to finish up the first season in time for the New Year!

Hahaha, I thought of that too.

Yikes, that was a creepy opening. It seemed supernatural at first with that flash of white light and howling wind suddenly coming out from the underground hole.

Agreed. Hawkbit is one of the lesser focused-on characters, but it's always nice to have him whenever he does come along.

A couple good lines that stuck out to me in this episode:

Bigwig: "I know you're afraid. Use that fear! It'll make you alert; vigilant. Fear can make you stronger!"

(after Fiver, Hazel, and Hawkbit reunite with the group, rendering the rescue attempt moot)
Dandelion: "What are you doing up there? We’re down here rescuing you."

I used to have this episode in novel form. :D
@MeadowRabbit: Oh, how did you acquire it? Was this an official release, or was it a fanfic?

Solid episode. Sets everything up nicely for the season finale.

Responding months later...

A number of the episodes were written in book form, authored by Judy Allen. So they were official merchandise for the series.
