While revisiting the Forbidden Ruins, Lion-O and Tygra get a glimpse into their own past, to a moment when the young brothers reached a potential fork in the road. Lion-O remembers some playfulness causing trouble, but the truth is, Tygra brought the trouble intentionally. All these years later, the act doesn’t sit well with the Lord of the ThunderCats. In fact, this rivalry is just one of many in the upcoming episode of the ThunderCats, Between Brothers. Set to air on Cartoon Network at 8:30pm this Friday, November 25th, the day after Thanksgiving, this episode is about anything but giving thanks to friends and family.
Heading to the Astral Plane to retrieve the Spirit Stone, the Cats are overrun by Mumm-Ra and a horde of his minions. But is the battle really against the evil Mumm-Ra, or more something internal “between brothers” as the title would indicate? Simply getting a quick look at the teaser sneak peek clip, its easy to see there’s a good deal of tension between the fierce warriors. Perhaps the biggest of the drama bombs is that Cheetara might finally be ready to name where her interests lie; in Lion-O or Tygra. Like a soap opera!
