I mentioned that the first episode started off slow just to introduce the characters and each episode will get a little more intense with each episode. While episode 3 of Godzilla: Singular Point was a little intense, no notches were turned up this time. It was about the same as episode 2. However, there are some cool moments that we discover in this episode.
As questions surrounding the Rodan species begin to pile up, Rodan has evolved to look more like the Rodan we normally recognize and they swarm toward Nigashio City attacking radio towers and anything emitting radio waves. With this sudden invasion, the Ōtaki Factory decided to use this invasion as an opportunity to test their theory that the Rodan are attracted to radio waves. If so, then they can lure the whole swarm away from the town.
Meanwhile, Mei is on the express train back to Nigashio City trying to figure out what the archetype molecule is supposed to be. Due to the swarm of Rodans attacking the city, however, passengers are begging the conductor to turn back. Mei's A.I. companion, Pero 2, hacks into one of the robots at the Ōtaki Factory to investigate the situation of the city. In the aftermath, Mei meets up with Professor Li's substitute, Kai Takehiro, to discuss about a possible meet up with Professor Li in Dubai to discuss about her theory of creatures being made up theoretical matter. Within in the envelope of her invitation, Mei also receives a small cube with a flower inside it. She studies it more and believes this is the archetype that Mei was researching earlier.
As I said, there were some cool moments in this episode. There was one scene where Yun and Haberu were stuck inside a storage room with a few other people and he attached small water bottles to some arrows and had the student archer fired them causing a whistling noise to distract the Rodans. Then, there was that other scene where Pero 2 came swooping in last minute to save Yun and Haberu from an oncoming Rodan. Those were both really cool moments. I chuckled a little bit after the Rodans destroyed the robot that Pero 2 was controlling because it reminded me of a certain robot called N.I.G.E.L. from Godzilla: The Series. In every episode of that cartoon, this robot would be sent to analyze the monster of that episode and would get destroyed immediately afterwards and Dr. Mendel would get so distraught.
The horrific thing about the Rodans that we don't see is when 13 people were reported missing in the aftermath of the attack. We know that they're aggressive by nature, but that report is suggesting that these creatures actually ate these people. Probably not as horrifying as seeing King Ghidorah eating Dr. Graham in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but still terrifying to say the least. Just like in episode 2, the media and scientists goes into speculation mode again and brainstorming ideas as to why Rodan looks different from the prior versions and why they keep dying from exhaustion. They even mention the red fluid seeping out from the bodies stating that no radioactive chemicals were detected, but they call it red sand. And this red sand was apparently discovered by the Godzilla skeleton when Yamamoto showed it off to Satō. Perhaps this red sand is a sign of Godzilla recovering? Who knows until we see Godzilla appear in a later episode.
So far, there are small things answered with more questions and speculation still waiting to unfold. I can't wait to see what happens in episode 4 especially with that Titanosaurus tease. Finally, more monsters are about to come into play. However, the Movie Monster Series is not calling it Titanosaurus, but rather it is being called Godzilla "Aquatilis". Judging by its face and the dorsal fins on its back it looks even more similar to Godzilla. And this brings back the question if this version of Titanosaurus could be related to Godzilla in some evolutionary way. If it does, then would Titanosaurus evolve into Godzilla or would the Godzilla skeleton come back to life? Until the next episodes air, the answers to these questions will have to wait.
