Last week on Mortal Kombat: Legacy, the debut of iconic warriors Scorpion and Sub-Zero played out. Left with a cliffhanger, the series returns this week for its eighth episode to complete the genesis of Scorpion himself.
Last week on the web series, Hanzo Hasashi (Ian Anthony Dale) had began a battle with Sub-Zero (Kevan Ohtsji) after the latter's murderous ambitions were revealed. A fight ensues which shows both ninja present iconic special maneuvers from the games including Sub-Zero's ice blast and Scorpion's iconic spear (in which he yells his signature 'Get over here!' in Japanese). Scorpion, momentarily incapacitating his attacker, rushes back to his village to find his family murdered. In his disbelief, he drops to his knees only to be attacked by Sub-Zero from behind.
We soon learn however that he had been deceived. The malevolent sorcerers Shang Tsung (Johnson Phan) and Quan Chi (Michael Rogers) were behind the plot, wishing to use Scorpion as a tool in the Mortal Kombat tournament. Fueled by vengeance, Hanzo Hasashi is reborn as the ninja spectre. Much like in the original short, he proclaims his name is now simply Scorpion. It should also be noted that the respective actors for Shang Tsung and Quan Chi actually appeared in the credits last week, hinting the Deadly Alliance's involvement in the treachery this week.
With only one episode remaining of Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 1, the creators of the series are still looking for your input. With hope of a second season abound, be sure to leave your comments on Machinima's Youtube page for this video! Season 1 completes next week with Cyrax and Sektor!
