Wake Up, Carlo! – Season 1 Episode 10 Recap & Review

A Blausball Match

Episode 10 of Wake Up, Carlo! begins by reminding the viewers of the punishment that the losers of the Blausball match will face. Following that, King Blaus makes a grand entrance. When Carlo tells him that the only goal of the game is to have fun, King Blaus contradicts him and demonstrates his competitive nature.

Carlo scores the first goal of the game. King Blaus is furious as a consequence. Following that, he conveniently switches his team. When King Blaus’ team scores a goal, their points skyrocket for no apparent reason. Tatiana scores shortly afterwards. However, Carlo’s team points are significantly lower than Blaus’. Following that, both teams take a half-time break.

Berto attempts to motivate the team during the break by asking them to unleash their inner monster. Carlo, on the other hand, disagrees, stating that he should keep his inner monsters hidden and only unleash his fun monster side. This difference of opinion causes an argument between the two close friends.

Blaus replaces his team yet again during the game. He also unleashes the sinister fog that devours Carlo’s friends one by one this time. Madame Bruguel eventually pushes Carlo into the fog as well. As the fog dissipates in the final seconds of the episode, the crowd applauds Madame Bruguel for saving the town from the fog. On this note, the episode comes to a close.

The Episode Review

Although skewed, episode 10 includes an action-packed match of Blausball. In this episode, the match between viewpoints is also strong, with both sides being extreme, unreasonable, and causing chaos in their own ways. At this point, the show’s metaphorical clashing is absurd. It doesn’t make sense to portray a capitalist figure as a communist tyrant. However, you could argue that the characters are under the influence.

Carlo and his friends are pushed into the sinister fog as the episode concludes. It’ll be interesting to see how things develop moving forward.
