He was a huge favorite among fans of the show, so to bring him back was definitely a splendid choice by Genndy Tartakovsky and his crew. This realization tore open the original psychological wound that caused him to toss his magical sword aside years earlier. After the villain ponders on how exactly he is going to destroy Jack, many of the closest allies and good friends Jack has made over the years come to battle Aku and rescue Jack.
The Jack that returned in the was a broken, haunted man, his spirit crushed after years of defeat and despair. Eleven years waiting for an ending that most people have cooked up in fan-fictions. Jack is outnumbered and the girls take his weapon and his armor, but he manages to get away somehow. Few shows are given an ending so complete, but then, few shows are ever as committed to telling a complete journey as Samurai Jack. You Want to Remember Jack as He Was. I thought the backstory and build-up to Jack facing off against the Daughters of Aku was very well done with a nice symbolic throwback to the classic days that this series is known for, especially with the wounded animal being forced to slaughter those for his own survival.
We can only imagine what will happen next! He and Ashi are set to marry and a well-deserved happy ending seems all but guaranteed.
