Jake in School


The episode starts out as Jake is in school, opening his locker to get some books. When he closes his locker, he sees Rose beside him. Rose says, "Hey, Jake? Got a second?" Jake replies, "Yes I do! And look, it went bye bye!", but he trips and falls down the stairs.

Later, Jake, Trixie and Spud are playing outside when Rose appears. Jake is confused about his feelings and doesn't know whether to run up to her and hug her or incinerate her with a fire ball.

While on the lookout in the city, the Huntsgirl appears and makes Jake follow her up a train station. When he goes in he is trapped by the Huntsman, but he goes past them and flies ahead. The Huntsman breaks some of the wires, causing one of the trains to head in Jake's direction, so he crashes with the train and gets knocked out.

Jake later finds himself locked up and chained with a Mermaid, a Giant, an unlucky leprechaun and a brownie with "some anger management problems" Jake tries to break the chain but he can't. The mermaid tells Jake that it is impossible. Jake asks them where they are and the mermaid says, "According to the position of the moon, I guess we are the special guests to the Grand Equinox Hunt." Jake says, "The what?"

In the woods, the Huntsman explains what the Grand Equinox Hunt is. They let the "prizes" go and give them a head start, then at midnight, they go out for them and hunt them, but the grand prize is the Huntsgirl prize, the American Dragon.

In the woods, Jake and the rest of the magical creatures are tied up. Jake manages to release his tail, but hides it so the Huntsgirl doesn't notice. Jake talks to the Huntsgirl, and when she turns around Jake tries to get the key, but she turns around again and tells Jake that it is her destiny. She leaves, and the mermaid tells him that it was a nice try. Jake shows her the key, and the giant yells, "You got the key! You got the key" They manage to untie themselves from the wood, but the chain leaves them stuck together

While running away, the Huntsman and the Huntsgirl notice that Jake and the rest escaped. The Huntsman says that this is the beginning of the Grand Equinox Hunt. They go hunting for Jake and the others, who are hiding behind a bush. Jake says to get ready for the American Airline Express, but the Mermaid tells him that it is impossible. Jake tells her that he knows he can get them from the bushes to the other side, but they get stuck in a tree on their way. But the leprechaun sneezes and the Huntsclan notices them on the tree, so Jake and the gang start running.

In a place full of gas, Jake can't set off his fire. When the Huntsgirl starts firing, Jake comes up with a plan to break them free: he makes her shoot at the chains, which frees them. Jakes shoots a flame which makes the Huntsclan run away. In a cave, Jake tells the magical creatures his plan, but they tell him that they are not warriors. But Jake tells them that he will train them. When he tries to train the leprechaun, he gets unlucky and a storm cloud appears on him. The boomerang that the giant throws hurts her, and the mermaid can't swim.

The next day that the Huntsclan comes, Jake goes on air to distract them, but the Huntsgirl captures Jake. In the campsite, the Huntsgirl is about to slay Jake, but the magical creatures come to the rescue. The Brownies take on two members of the Huntsclan, and the giant makes everyone faint with her smelly feet. The leprechaun electrifies two members of the Huntsclan, and the mermaid splashes them. She releases Jake, and Jake flies off and spits fireballs at the Huntsman. But this time the Huntsgirl traps Jake again, and this time she plans slay him, but Jake yells, "Rose, no!" The Huntsgirl is shocked, and Jake confesses that he is the dragon. When Jake reverts back into a human, Rose is surprised, takes off her mask, slashes the ropes and runs away, but Jake trips.

In a telephone booth, Jake calls Grandpa and Fu Dog to pick them up. As Jake, Grandpa and Fu Dog talk about the Huntsgirl, Jake says that now things are going to be good between them. At school, Jake tells Trixie and Spud that there will be no more secrets, and now they can talk about it with no interruptions. Outside in the yard, when Jake counts, Rose doesn't appear. When he goes to the office, the principal tells Jake that she moved to a new school, thus, she left him a picture of them at the dance. The episode ends with a depressed and heartbroken Jake saying, "Aw, man!"


  • Jake and the other creatures escaping while cuffed to each other may be a reference to the film The Defiant Ones.


  • When Jake is chained to a stake, his hands are first at his side, then behind his back, and then they are back at his side.
