So I’ve been on vacation for several days now and I find myself having to play catch up on some blog posts. Hopefully I am able to remember everything because Oswin is sitting here next to me giving me a coy look from atop my mouse pad. So first things first.
My first major topic of this post, The Venture Brothers! Spoilers Alert! Season 6 is up and running already and I haven’t posted much about it! So episode 8 is coming out tonight! So here is a quick update of things Venture. So before season 6 started there was a special called All That and Gargantua-2 where in the Venture family is invited to the grand opening of Jonas Venture Jr’s first ever public space station. It’s really cool but The Investors are also there. Long story short it turns into a big crap shoot of The Sovereign attacking the station with the aid of the Revenge Society. Sabotage and unexpected turns lead us down a path where Jonas Venture Jr. (Rusty’s “brother”) dies by some natural causes and some totally weird stuff. Oh and the compound burns down (thanks to The Monarch). So we start season 6 with J.J’s funeral. Rusty inherits his brother’s fortune and moves the family to New York to the Ventech Tower (Venture Industries) and starts firing everyone and spending money.
Meanwhile Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and the Council of 13 (which is now 6 in numbers) are trying to keep The Guild of Calamitous Intent from going totally out of control. The biggest problem are new villains to us from New York, Wide Whale, whom is Rusty’s new main Archenemy and neighbor.
Other characters from older seasons have made their way to season 6 like Brock, White and Billy. Dr. Orpheus has yet to be seen, but he has been mentioned. Lots of new characters.
But skimming past a lot of other stuff The Monarch plays a big role in this season. He has moved to his old house where his parents lived, which is in total disrepair. While construction is being done a secret passage way is discovered and it is found out that The Monarch’s father was a vigilante named The Blue Morpho (ironically another butterfly theme). Little is still known about The Blue Morpho except that he was friends with Jonas Venture Sr., Rusty’s father. Dr. Z of the Council of 13 is the most knowledgeable of the Blue Morpho, having apparently had a one night stand with the Blue Morpho whom was disguised as a woman! But the twist is that so far nothing is known if the Blue Morpho somehow faked the sex scene or if he had the “equipment” so to say.
Okay, so now my theory on the Blue Morpho. It is known from last season that Rusty and The Monarch knew each other as small children. The Monarch found a photo of them together at the compound. Video has now been found in The Blue Morpho’s lair where The Blue Morpho admits to being a “bad guy” with Jonas Venture Sr. in the room. It gets all sorts of creepy after that in the video, but Jonas Sr. says he loves The Blue Morpho for that reason. Dr. Z also says that the Blue Morpho was who Dr. Venture Sr. called upon for dirty work that needed to be done. But there was also a price on his head from The Guild. And it was paid in the 70’s when The Monarch’s parents died. My theory is that Dr. Venture Sr. is Rusty’s father and The Blue Morpho played the role as mother. Then later on The Blue Morpho had The Monarch with a woman. I also think Dr. Venture Sr. is the one who had The Blue Morpho killed. Hopefully someone somewhere followed that sporadic mess of typing. Please do comment if you have theories for The Venture Brothers or questions. I am expecting questions really…But as always comment are welcome and so are shares or likes.
