Episode 16 Clip 1
The Monarch continues to rebuild his villainous empire with the aid of his shadowy new Number 2, Dr. Henry Killinger, but Henchman 21 is suspicious of the deadly foreigner's unctuous charms.
When Dr. Venture finally succeeds in attaining the holy grail of superscience--the revivification of a human corpse for fun and profit--a washed up gang of wandering former teen sleuths is convinced that the Venture Compound is haunted. Their investigation uncovers something far creepier. Meanwhile, Orpheus shepherds Brock through a crisis of conscience with the help of a New Age shaman and a bizarre tea party.
If you see only one episode of The Venture Bros. this season, make it this one and the one after it. The Monarch finally (for like the fourth time) has Team Venture in his clutches, the one time he doesn't want them--smack dab in the middle of the social event of the supervillain season. The stage is set for a deadly, ultimate showdown between The Monarch and Phantom Limb for the hand of Dr. Girlfriend.
As Phantom Limb makes his stunning power play, only Brock can rally The Monarch's forces to mount a defense. The fate of almost everyone in the Venture universe hangs in the balance as The Sovereign reveals his true identity and guys and stuff explode all over the place.
Dr. Venture learns that a life with no arch enemy is not nearly so sweet when he finds himself besieged by C-list pretenders to the Monarch's throne, and his super-science business once again on the rocks. Despite the best efforts of family and friends, it will take the help of a dark and mysterious stranger to get Doc's life back on track--but could it cost him his soul?
