heu guys i wanted to make a thread giving my predoctions regarding samurai jack's final episode

1. i believe ashi will purify herself of aku's essense this type of situation is simillar to the aku infection in s4 (very good episode) plus the key on her outfit could  symboliize something

2. scotsman will play a big role in the final battle next to ashi scotsman is his best friend kind of a downer that he was thrown in at the strt of ep 5 only to be killed off but genndy is setting him up for something

3. jack and ashi will take down aku together as ashi said everything thy've been through has led them here itd be kind of a shame if they didn't tag team against him alittle

4. jack will stay in the future with ashi and they will live a happy life together i know the song gotta get back but he's been through so much in 50 yrs and he basically tells ashi in ep 9 that he loves her (which imo was very well executed) it would be stupid for him to turn away from ashi i know some fans on here have issues with them but i think their relationship has been paced well oh and she gave jack hope

 

anyway those are my predictions get excited for tomorrow my friends don't let us down genndy

So it's the final episode and that's it with the show? It's over for good?

Which I've told you - time and time again - is dangerous! There will never be consensus, son, among those you have helped to ascend. They will all differ in their views of what it means to be free. The peace you so desperately seek does not exist.

 

These men are united now by a common cause. But when this battle is finished they will fall to fighting amongst themselves about how best to ensure control. In time it will lead to war. You will see.

All the friends that jack had are erased for good. Or they don't even know who jack is anymore. and ashi gets erased for good.

 

The ending felt heartbreaking.

I call it something was going to happen to Ashi, still was a good ending. If you realize in S. Jack always coming something good then bad always a sour ending.

The ending made sense... but it left me a little underwhelmed. After a bit of thought, I have decided that this could be seen as a more of an open ended conclusion, only resolving the Aku story line. The story can go where you want it to go from here. If you wanted the melancholy ending, leaving it where it is makes sense. I prefer a happy ending, so there are a few ways the story could go to be more fulfilling. Just wanted to throw these options out there for catharsis and letting go of this great series.

 

Jack didn't get his happily ever after and has lapsed back into his old wandering ways. I prefer to think of the lady bug as a way to show Jack that Ashi protected the nature that she loved in the end, but also as a reminder of the hope that Ashi revitalized within him.

 

Here are a few ways that the story could conclude. 

 

Option A

Jack now has 50 years worth of knowledge about mystical places and artifacts on earth that have existed even before his time. Jack may begin a new quest to find a way to wish Ashi back (Dragon Balls anyone? lol). After all, she may not physically exist, but Jack's memories and experiences in the future were real, otherwise he would not have returned. This is the simplest option.

 

Option B

With his vow fulfilled and Ashi gone, Jack has no reason to stay in the past. He might abdicate the throne leaving his sword behind and go on the same quest, only in this scenario to wish to return the future that he knew and loved cleansed of Aku with everyone he knew restored, including Ashi. He would understand that they would have no knowledge of him, so he would begin a new journey meeting everyone once more with new origins and new stories. This one would be a little more complicated necessitating a season 6 and culminating with Jack having to find his sword (hidden away for centuries) and defeating a new (though less threatening villain). This would endear him to his friends once more and allow him and Ashi to return to his home to live out the rest of his days in peace.  

 

Option C (my favorite)

Jack goes on an epic quest in the past to bring Ashi back. Along his journey he meets many new and interesting characters. Among them, a masked woman trained to be a ninja that was sent to break the emperor's bloodline. Of course Jack defeats her and earns her respect. Understanding that her failure means death and she has nothing more to live for, she follows Jack on his quest to find his way back to Ashi, eventually growing to care for him. Overcoming a final obstacle, Jack and the ninja finally find what they are looking for and Jack asks for Ashi to be restored. Jack is informed that the future that he knew no longer exists, therefore she cannot be returned. Stricken, Jack collapses to his knees. Attempting to comfort him, the ninja removes her mask only to reveal Ashi's face. Jack doesn't understand how this is possible. The person protecting or overseeing the wish granting object states that while her future self may not exist, her soul would have been reincarnated from previous lifetimes. This Ashi would be one of those previous lifetimes. Jack would make the only reasonable wish, to share his memories of the future with her. Thus, Ashi would be restored and they would return to the palace to finish the wedding that was previously thwarted by the space time continuum.

 

This one even included a reference to their conversation involving becoming memories. I like it! One hour special anyone?

The ending felt heartbreaking.

after rewatching the finale all i can say is that it was a mess big time not just cuz of ashi's demise but because by her getting jack to the past it created plot holes idk if the creator will touch on this ever again but i remember he once said jack going back to the past was a metaphor not literal he should of stuck by what he said back then if i get the chance to meet him ill be glad to tell him the plotholes

You know I thought about something.

Shouldn't Jack disappear as well? Since he's a time paradox himself, because he's also from the future and he went back and stopped Aku, thus he erased the timeline where Aku lived and continued to infect the world with darkness.

So the Jack that Aku send into the future either is erased because he has nowhere to travel to, or he was sent to a future without Aku, thus Jack in the future couldn't go back to stop Aku. Either way the Jack that was sent to the future cannot exist because Jack from the future went back and killed Aku, which should erase both versions of Jack, since both are one and the same, one that went or didn't went to a different timeline, and if he went to a different timeline, he erased the Jack that came back. But if he was erased and the Jack that went back was erased as well because that Jack never existed.

Oh time travel. :huh: :D
