Synopsis
As the duel between Joey and Weevil continues Joey still ahs his monsters as Parasites and still cant attack because of the Insect Barrier. Tea, TRisten and Gramps still believe in Joey while Weevil says to say good bye to Battle City. The Great Moth attacks the Alligator Sword. Joey's life points still stands at 3100 while Weevil's stand at 5700. Tristen makes a remark making Weevil ask if he's Joey's pom pom girl. Tristen gets all mad and threatens he'll go over there and beat him up. Weevil reminds them that Joey's monsters stoill are infected by the parasite which will block his attacks. He also says that nothing can beat the Great Moth except Gate Guardian and the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon which Joey doesnt have.

Back at the hospital Kenta pushes the labtop out of the way and lies down saying there isnt hope for Joey. Serenity still believes in Joey and says he can win. Kenta says that even Joey's best moves arent good enough and maybe he should just run away. Serenity reminds Kenta thats what he did and Kenta still doesnt want his x ray taken and that he'll stay in Serenity's room.

Back at the duel Joey still hasnt gotten an idea on how to beat Weevil's Moth. He draws a card he needs and plays one card face down and switches his monsters to attack mode. Everyone is shocked and Tristen thinks he's gone nuts. Weevil draws his next card and lays a monster in defense mode and Leghul attacks directly again. Joey:2800. Weevil is gonna attack the parasite monster with his Moth reducing Joey's life points to 0 but Joey has other plans. He activates Skull Dice which lands on a two reducing the Moth to 1750. Weevil doesnt mind but then Joey activates his Graceful Dice raising the Parasites attack to 2000. The Moth is destroyed and Weevil's life points go to 5450.
Kenta and Serenity cheer for Joey as a new hope comes.

Weevil is now mad but gets over it as he plays Insect Soldier of the Sky and then Plays a bug spray magic card destroying his Hiphopper. Hiphopper lets Weevil bring any monster from his hand to field and plays Insect Queen. Weevil then tells that the Insect Queen absorbs every insects attack on the field. The Insect Queen's attack raises to 3200.
Kenta gets worried again because of the new monster but Serenity says that they can help him as she had helped her go through her eye operation. Kenta asks if Serenity will be his friend and she laughs and says yes.
Back at the duel Weevil sacrifices Leghul attack the Insect Queen destroys the Tiny Guardian lowering Joey's life points to 1000. Then the Queen lays an egg leting her store her attack points. Joey frantically searches for a way to win as he draws his next card. He lays the card face down but Gramps realizes Joey forgot to switch his monsters to defense mode. Weevil laughs and yet again attacks after sacrificing the Caoch Roach Knight. Joey then activates a trap letting him take one of Weevil's monsters to block the attack reducing Weevil to 3250.
Kenta celebrates agin as Serenity quietly tells herself she knew he could hold on.
Joey then switches his monsters to defense mode as Weevil draws the caoch Roach Knight again and sacrifices it to feed the Queen. He attacks the Panther Warrior, killing it. Joey doesnt want to summon a new monster as the parasite will take it over. Joey then starts to tell himself that he cannot win but Tea tells him not to give up. Tristen reminds Joey that he needs to duel for bis sister as she looks up to him for strength. This gets Joey's attention. He says that she was there for him when he dueled Espa Roba and that he cant give up.
Kenta cheers saying that Joey can win if he trys. Serenity freaks out but Kenta says that they gotta keep cheering.
Tea once again says not to give up and Weevil tells him to give up but he refuses and draws a card which may help Joey. He then plays a card face down and summons GearFried the Iron Knight which cant be taken over by the Parasite as it cant feed off of metal. Everyone cheers and Joey has a plan as he's going to attack the eggs. Gearfried does. Joey makes fun of Weevil now as the eggs are defenseless. Weevil plays soldier ant and makes ten of them. Weevil then orders the Insect Queen to attack but Joey reveals his trap Grave Robber. He takes the bug spray thonger Weevil used earlier and kills the Queen. Joey orders Greafried to attack the egg ending the duel.
Weevil begs for mercy so he doesnt have to give up his 2 locator cards and the Insect Queen. Joey refuses and taks the cards.

Notes
  • Kids WB used the promo title "Weevil's Web" for this episode.
  • Quotes
    "Welcome to Loserville Weevil, population you." -Joey

    Gramps: He did his homework. And you call yourself a expert insect duelist.

    WEEVIL(After Joey destroyed his Insect Queen)-What have you done to my queen.
    JOEY-But wait I'm not through with you yet Weevil Underpants Gearfeild attack Weevil's last egg and the rest of his lifepoints.

    TRISTAN-Come on Joey you must have some sort of giant fly swatter in your deck.
    WEEVIL-What are you his pom-pom girl.
    TRISTAN-Don't make me come over there.

    Goofs and Nitpicks
  • Insect Queen's card was yellow, the colour of a normal monster, when it should have been orange to show that it was an effect monster.
  • When Weevil's Cockroach Knight is fed to the Insect Queen for the first time, it shows Leghul being eaten instead.
  • When Gearfried attacked the last of the insect eggs, Joey called it Gearfield.
  • One of the scenes in the hospital shows Weevil's LP drop to zero on the laptop screen before then rising back up again. This could be because in the Japanese version the laptop displayed the stats of the monster in play and at the time Weevil had no monster on the field.
  • One of the scenes after Joey defeats the Ultimate Great Moth, it shows the Parasect Paraside card on Weevil's duel disk.
  • When Weevil played "cockraoch night" he said it goes to the top of the deck when it is destroyed, however, when he kept summoning it back to the field (including the first time) you see it as a normal card (light yellow). It should have been dark orange/brown if its effect is to go to the top of the deck when it's defeated.
  • Weevil said that Gate Guardian (3750/3400) and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon (4500/3200) are the only cards that can destroy Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth (3500/3000). There are quite a few cards more powerful than it (Excluding the God cards). Some examples are Five God Dragon, Master Of Dragon Knight, Exodia Necros, and Mirage Knight.
  • WEEVIL SAID THE ONLY CARDS THAT COULD DESTROY PERFECTLY ULTIMATE GREAT MOTH ARE BLUE EYES ULTIMATE DRAGON(4500/3800)AND GATE GAURDIAN(3750/3500)BUT THATS NOT TRUE MYTHIC DRAGON(5000/5000) SUPREME DRAGON MASTER KNIGHT(5000/5000)AND EXODIA THE FORBIDDEN ONE COULD NUKE HIS MOTH IN ONE BLAST.
  • WEEVIL SAID THE ONLY CARDS THAT COULD DESTROY PERFECTLY ULTIMATE GREAT MOTH ARE BLUE EYES ULTIMATE DRAGON(4500/3800)AND GATE GAURDIAN(3750/3500)BUT THATS NOT TRUE MYTHIC DRAGON(5000/5000) SUPREME DRAGON MASTER KNIGHT(5000/5000)AND EXODIA THE FORBIDDEN ONE COULD NUKE HIS MOTH IN ONE BLAST.
  • Don't forget Obelisk(ATK.4000,DEF.4000), Slifer,(If you play it right).
  • Well Weevil doesn't know about the Mythic Dragon and Master Dragon Knight. Besides, they have never been cards before in the show! As for the Exodia, Weevil's probably trying to intimidate Joey.-submitted by Sagara.
  • Actually, we don't know whether or not Weevil's heard of those cards. And if he did, he probably thought Joey had never heard of them.
  • Weevil couldn't mention the God-cards because we know that he's never heard of them.
