Peter realizes he's completely neglecting his friends, influenced by the alien goo 'symbion'. As it hates vibrations, he tries to get rid of it exposing it to church bells, but it pins him down and evokes memories of how it all started, the trauma of Uncle Ben's murder. However Ben's memory stays and encourages Peter to resist and wrestle loose. Now he brings the goo back to the lab and thinks he freezes it to death. Eddie is furious his rehabilitation is turned to hopeless. But the symbiont survived, transfers to Eddie and brings Peter's memories along. Written by KGF Vissers

Peter Parker: Okay, if Flash Thompson is making sense, something must be seriously wrong. Why did I blow of my friends? MJ, Liz and Gwen- she's always been there for us since the seventh grade. What about the battle with the Sinister Six? The one that we slept through? Or the fact that we asked Tombstone for a job... or the fact that we keep thinking "we" instead of "I"?

Best episode in the show!
26 April 2017 | by stevenyellowSee all my reviews

I'm a big advocator of spectacular spider man and I'm not going to waste time explaining why because this episode proves everything I think about the show.WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD Now the episode starts off with Peter at the hospital but when the drama really starts to boil is when he goes to school and gives his friends an ultimatum either give me money or don't try which sets up the perfect development for the character of flash as he knocks some sense into Peter. Once he does that Peter goes to the bell tower to remove the symbiote but it ties him up and shows him flashbacks of his life when he was once bitten by the spider which shows excellent respect for the spider man movie as many of the scenes are directly pulled from it and we get the true essence of Peter Parker when uncle Ben dishes out everything symbiote and Shows Peter his true self allowing him to get rid of the symbiote. The end of the episode provides a great setup for the next episode with Eddie Brock becoming venom,all in all this encompasses all the things I love about the show and it's one of the best episodes in any TV show ever.
