Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.
We’re getting close to the end now.
I didn’t like the “Chrome Car” episode as much as the others. It was your typical main character encounters their mirror self episode. I did like that the Infinity Train creators didn’t just have Mirror Tulip be evil. The mirror version was more like how Tulip wished she was. Mirror Tulip feels trapped and wants to explore the world. When Tulip says she can help, the mirror version says something like, “You’re trapped too. You hide out in your room all the time and never see the world.”
Episode 8, “Ball Pit Car,” had more to it however. It was nice to see Tulip having fun instead of being serious and logical. And just right when everything is happy, the wire monster arrives and the action kicks off. But, what I really liked about the episode is you finally learn who the wire creature is and you finally meet the Conductor. The Conductor does confirm that he/it is after Tulip for leaving her car and messing with his plans. You also get to see how the soul-sucking cockroaches from episode one are created.
In other words, a lot of questions get answered in this episode. But then more questions arise, like what is the Conductor’s plan? Also, it seems that the train wants Tulip to explore but the Conductor does not. It sounds like the Conductor is either malfunctioning or he’s gotten too big for his metal breeches and wants to “rule the train.” The Conductor seems to want the train to be more orderly and logical–kind of like how Tulip wanted it to be at first.
What do you think is the Conductor’s master plan? How is Tulip going to cope with the events of the “Ball Pit Car?” Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Until next wormhole…thanks for reading!
