Scott Pilgrim Takes Off Season 1, Episode 7 '2 Scott 2 Pilgrim' Recap - The Oz Network TV

It's the penultimate episode of Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, where we travel into the not too distant future (but technically the not too distance past) as we cover the hilariously titled '2 Scott 2 Pilgrim'. How many twists will be revealed now that Scott has come back to his own series? Was this written to establish him as a villain? How many video game references can we possibly catch in one 30 minute episodes? Are we happy to be graced with Old Young Neil's brief appearance since we're missing Young Young Neil? Does this episode officially make this a sequel now on top of being a prequel/reboot/remake/alternate storyline? Is it right to be worried that the finale will now go back to the original story? And how impressive is it Scott can grow a beard? Time to put on those Delorean blades and get up to 88 MPH to catch up with our latest recap.
