Zarm has succeeded in altering Earth's history, causing the Earth to become ruined. The now powerless Planeteers must find a way to get back their powers, undo the damage Zarm had caused, and save Gaia before she dies.

Episode Summary[]

None yet.

Planeteer Alerts[]

First Planeteer Alert

Captain Planet: Each of us must do what we can to save our planet.
Gi: Sometimes this means taking a little time to show we really care.
Kwame: Recycling and conserving resources are all very important.
Linka: But we must also let our leaders know that we want our governments to protect the Earth, too.
Wheeler: So paint or draw a leaf on a postcard and send it to your head of state.
Ma-Ti: We will be heard.
Captain Planet: The power is yours!

Second Planeteer Alert

Captain Planet: We all wonder what effect each of us has on the future. Every person can set an example for bad – or for good.
Linka: Together, with each of us setting good examples...
Ma-Ti: ... we can save the planet!
Wheeler: And protect the future!
Captain Planet: The power is yours!

Significant Moments and Facts[]

  • Commander Clash reappears since Mission to Save Earth.
  • Ma-Ti explicitly states that Zarm has no heart. This can be seen as being foreshadowed by The Conqueror, where Ma-Ti said Zarm's heart was empty.
  • In this episode Gaia is shown crying – twice.
    • First, during Ma-Ti's little speech about the power of Heart.
    • Second, at the very end, when the participants of the Earth Summit cheer for the good changes proposed by the President.
  • While getting rid of Zarm, Captain Planet manages to give Gaia a quick, yet very affectionate hug, which doesn't go unnoticed by Kwame and Wheeler.
  • Gaia is shown to have some control over the timeline.

Errors and Inconsistencies[]

  • The delegates that Zarm captured reappear at the end without any basis as to how or when they were rescued, since Captain Planet kicked Zarm's ship into space.
  • Looten Plunder is strangely absent during Part 2 despite being in Part 1.


  • Duke Nukem: What's the matter, piggy-wiggy?
    Hoggish Greedily: Nuke, buddy, relax!
    Duke Nukem: You know what porkers like you are good for? Barbecue!
  • Zarm: (freeing Ma-Ti from his force field) Well, do something!
    Ma-Ti: (bursting into tears) I cannot stop you, Zarm. My ring is the power of Heart, which allows us to love. Heart to care for our planet and friends. My ring will not touch you because... you have no heart!
    Zarm: (laughing) You fool! It's Heart that makes you weak! So prepare yourself, weakling.
  • Ma-Ti: Our rings do not work!
    Gaia: (shaking her head) Planeteers... The rings are not the source of your power. The real power to save Earth comes from within; inside you. It always has.
  • Zarm: (being attacked by monkeys) Get away, you vermin!
    Captain Planet: You're the vermin, Zarm! No – vermin's too good for you. You're trash, and this is one time I'm not recycling!
