"Owlette's New Move" (also known as "Bibou et la nouvelle technique d'attaque" in French) is the second segment of the 18th Season 1 episode of PJ Masks.
Catboy and Gekko dream up an exciting new superhero move that they think is sure to stop any villain, but Owlette can’t seem to get it right. Rather than admitting it, she refuses to try the move at all, which allows Romeo to get all of his machines up and running in his own super evil move to take over the world.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Owlette's New Move":
The episode starts off with Connor, Amaya, and Greg at the playground. The boys are planning a new three-way super move to defeat the nighttime villains: while Connor and Greg distract them by crossing over each other, Amaya will do a flying cartwheel towards the middle. The kids use this chance to practice; however, Amaya cartwheels before the boys get into their positions; she doesn’t understand what to do.
Amaya studies the move recorded in Connor’s tablet as the kids go home to practice some more. They see train tracks from the Tracker Whacker and ice on one of the trees from the Laboggan’s Ice Machine. They also see a butterfly moving slowly from the Go-Slow Ray and the teacher running out of the school because of the Sniff-O-Whiff. All these indicate that Romeo is planning something big.
The PJ Masks arrive at HQ that night and practice the new move before going out to stop Romeo. Owlette performs her cartwheel, but does it too early again. The boys want to try once more, but to avoid messing up, Owlette claims that she has it down; additionally, since she has her own super moves, they don’t need to try that new move out. Despite the fact that it could help stop Romeo’s big plan, she declares to go to the Owl-Glider.
The PJ Masks find Romeo with some of his past inventions for a giant attack. First, he’ll use his Go-Slow Ray and Sniff-O-Whiff installed on Robot to zap the team in slow motion and fill their headquarters with bad smells. Next, he’ll use the Laboggan’s Ice Machine to freeze their super vehicles. Then, he’ll build the Tracker Whacker up to speed to destroy the whole town so he can rebuild it into Romeoville. All he needs to do is fix them all up from his past defeats, and he will control them with his new Radical Romeo Remote.
The team can’t stop all of the inventions at once, so the main focus is to get the remote before Romeo fixes them; the way to do that is by using the new move. Owlette decides to swoop down and snatch the invention instead to avoid doing it. Romeo is able to fix both his Sniff-O-Whiff and Go Slow Ray, however, and Robot sprays her. He is about to zap her in slow motion as well until Catboy moves his firing eye away from her while Gekko catches her.
Romeo boards the Laboggan to fix the Ice Machine next, and Robot runs off to get ready for the final attack. The boys suggest to go over the new move since it’s the only way to get the remote. Owlette claims that she knows what to do already, but has another suggestion; she is going to do a flying twirl. Gekko suggests trying the new move with two people, but it can only work with all three team members.
Owlette does her flying twirl trick on Romeo to make him dizzy, but he is too busy concentrating on fixing his Ice Machine. The machine is soon ready; he activates it to freeze her. He then boards the Tracker Whacker to repair it and speeds off. Owlette is sent spinning around from its speed, though Catboy stops her, and Gekko uses his Super Gekko Muscles on the ice to free her. The Laboggan also takes off for the final attack.
Owlette still refuses to do the new move, even though she claims she understands it. Catboy and Gekko suspect that this is not the case; she was embarrassed about messing up before, and is worried about performing the same mistake again. Owlette denies this suspicion and catches up to Romeo to use her Owl Wing Wind on him. Unfortunately, the Tracker Whacker is repaired; he counteracts her power by blasting off. Catboy catches her before she falls, and Gekko catches the car that was sent flying as well from the train’s speed blast before it crushes them.
All of Romeo’s machines are now prepared for the final attack: the Laboggan is freezing the moat, Robot is making sure the team doesn’t come any closer while he prepares to stink up HQ, and Romeo is riding around to destroy the whole town. Owlette admits that her friends were right, and should have asked for help when she had the chance, but was too embarrassed to do so. They empathize how she feels, so they decide to add some hand movements after they get into position. This will be the signal for Owlette to do her cartwheel at the perfect time.
The PJ Masks catch up to the Tracker Whacker and board on different sides. Romeo’s attention is on Catboy and Gekko, who climb up both sides, cross over each other, and perform their hand movements. This time, Owlette is able to do her flying cartwheel at the right time and snatches the remote from him. The team passes it around to stop all the inventions from causing any more trouble: Robot is frozen, and all of the vehicles stop moving.
Defeated, after Romeo is flung out by the Tracker Whacker’s sudden stop and into a trash can, he makes his escape. The PJ Masks proclaim their signature victory phrase. The next day, the kids practice their new move again at the playground. Amaya stumbles after doing her cartwheel, but Connor and Greg catch her, and they all laugh together.
- If you get something wrong the first time, it is good to be willing to try again.
- In this episode, several of Romeo's inventions are used, including the Tracker Whacker from "Blame it on the Train, Owlette," the Laboggan with the Ice Machine from "Gekko's Nice Ice Plan," the Go-Slow Ray from "Slowpoke Gekko," the Sniff-O-Whiff from "Catboy and the Pogo Dozer," and the Radical Romeo Remote from "Catboy Takes Control."
- In closed captioning, Romeo's robot is referred to as Sniff-O-Whiff.
- This episode was previously referred to as "Owlette's New Trick."
- Even though this episode premiered before "Slowpoke Gekko," this episode chronologically takes place after it, as the PJ Masks knew that Romeo was using his Go-Slow Ray.
