The Tick season 2, episode 7 recap: Lei-Lo, Ho!


The Tick and Arthur set out to find the lobster babies while Dot and Overkill set out on their own mission to find the Duke.

The Tick and Arthur are scouring the city in search of the “house under a volcano” from Lobstercules only clue as to where Donny might be hiding out, but they haven’t found anything yet. Miss Lint calls and tells Arthur that Superian seems to think he’s his therapist or something and that he’s been thinking about blowing people out into space.

Arthur is suspicious that Lint seems to actually be concerned about other people, which sets off the hero’s voice in his head. She deflects his questions, but while Arthur is on the phone he can hear the lobster babies singing in the background. Wherever Lint is, the babies are nearby. They trace her location through caller ID and stake out the Lei-Lo Motel with Tinfoil Kevin.

Meanwhile, Donny and his guys can’t get the lobster babies to eat and are getting tired of taking care of what is now a liability. Donny decides its time to have a lobster dinner, which he says in what sounds like a Cockney English accent. In fact, it sounded so much like a Cockney accent that I thought it was going to be some kind of plot twist that he was actually from England, but it turned out just to be a weird dialect slip – he’s still supposedly from Maine.
