Mortal Kombat Legacy Ep 8- scorpion part 2

With Only two episodes left of MK Legacy, one wonders what to expect next from the MK Universe, are these ten episodes a prelude to the long awaited Mortal Kombat movie reboot or will they just proceed with their legacy storyline into a second season?

Scorpion is one of the Flagship characters in mk mythology , probably the most popular amongst fans, having appeared in every MK game and every movie in the very same way wolverine is in the marvel universe. The second part of the Scorpion subzero Mortal Kombat Legacy episode was released yesterday, the story continues from where the first part left off, the Lin Keui warriors have attacked the territory of the Shirai Ryu and scorpion and subzero are about to fight to their death. Except for the mortal kombat comic books we haven't seen in any of the two films or television series an origin story with this much detail.

Scorpion was the general of the Shirai Ryu whose clan along with his wife and son were killed in cold blood by Sub Zero's Clan, the Lin Kuei. Hanzo Hasashi (Scorpion) then became a hell spawned spectre who bargained his soul with an evil sorcerer from outworld, Quan Chi to seek retribution for the death of his family at the hands of his mortal enemy sub zero. The action which is nothing short of amazing is secondary to the story line, unlike any of the previous movies, special effects are used in moderation and rope dart kung fu is very cleverly incorporated into scorpions arsenal of attacks which makes his trademark rope spear grab very believable.

I think that the director could have made provision to delve into the history between the two clans the way he explained the Mileena and Kitana origin story because it is still not clear to me whether scorpion exists in an alternate universe, whether his existence is happening on earth during the same time and space as Johnny Cage, Sonya, Jax, Kano etc but there is still is plenty of room to still explore and im sure, based on what we have seen so far that we will see  this in future episodes.

Watashi no namae wa..... SCORPION.  Enjoy the best episode of the series so far!!!
