Storyline

To defeat a competitive rival, Leo asks Chase to be his partner in The Annual Mission Creek Robot Throwdown. Donald catches wind of it and asks to join their team as well, but his idea of partnership is to totally take over. Leo and Chase have no choice but to kick him out after he completely dismantles their robot, which leaves Donald no choice but to enter the contest on his own, making the most of how badly he's going to beat them down in public. Meanwhile, Bree uses super-speed in front of a classmate. Fortunately, it's her friend Caitlin, who has a severe crush on Adam. To keep the team's bionic secret, it's obvious: Adam must agree to date Caitlin (but Caitlin's domineering ways don't make it easy). Written by statmanjeff

Never challenge your children to a toy-building competition
30 November 2017 | by flarefan-81906See all my reviews

This episode gives us two totally unconnected plots. The good news is, both of them work. Plot A has Chase and Leo going up against Donald in a build-your-own-robot competition. Surprisingly enough, the robot designs and bouts look reasonably authentic, but what really makes plot A succeed is how Donald is portrayed. In most episodes, we're given to understand that the guy is egotistical and often childish, but his actions reflect his noble fatherly instincts. Here, for a change, we get to see Donald being a total jerk. It's funny, shows a new side to the character, and makes his defeat extremely satisfying.

In Plot B, Bree carelessly uses her powers in front of her friend Caitlin, and she enlists Adam to cozy up to her and persuade her to keep quiet. I like how Bree exposes her powers out of sheer carelessness, rather than as a response to some contrived situation; it feels more natural and realistic. Without spoiling anything, the resolution to this problem is well-conceived and has a nice twist or two.

Not as funny as the last three episodes, but enjoyable.
