The second half of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil’s third season has put the titular heroine in some tough situations. She has uncovered deep, dark royal conspiracies and her attempts to unite mewmans and monsters have thus far been unsuccessful. The latter of these two was the focus of this week’s first epsiode “Is Another Mystery.”

Wanting to spend more time with and help Star out as her boyfriend, Tom joins her on a mission to find Buff Frog after Marco brings news of his absence. Upon investigating, Star and Tom find the monsters are planning to leave Mewni and seek refuge in another dimension. Though Tom gives a heartfelt speech about being a monster himself, the monsters still decide to leave, promising to return when Star is queen. After a sad goodbye, Star feels her efforts to bring Monster and Mewmans together have only made things worse, but she is comforted by Tom, who says that if they can make things worse, then there is still hope.

Themes - Episode - Evident - End - Thing

The themes of this episode are strong, but not exactly made evident until the very end. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, the sense of mystery as to why the monsters have disappeared builds tension, and when we eventually learn that it’s from the continued prejudice against their kind, it makes the problems they face seem all the more real. Plus, Tom was great in this episode, he started out trying to one-up Marco, as usual, and eventually began to help Star and be there for her in his own way, by just speaking from his heart. He also made a great point about his relationship with Star, if a monster and a Mewman can date, then there is hope for the two species to get along in the future.
