Cat Noir, "Weredad"

"Weredad" is a Season 3 episode of the series, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir.[7] As based on the series' production order specifically, "Weredad" is the 6th written and produced episode of Season 3. It is also the 58th written and produced episode of the series, overall.[1]

Synopsis

Disappointed that Cat Noir doesn't return his daughter's love, Tom becomes Weredad, who locks Marinette in a magic prison to protect her from hurt.[8]

Plot

Cat Noir flirts with Ladybug.

Late at night, Gigantitian is causing havoc throughout Paris looking for some cake. When he approaches the Dupain-Cheng bakery, Tom comes out and vows to protect his home, though Sabine and Ladybug warn him of the danger. Ladybug tries to restrain Gigantitan with her yo-yo while Cat Noir flirts with her, but the villain flings her into a giant Adrien advertisment. Cat Noir jokingly tells her that his poetry must've at least made her swoon, though Ladybug tells him that's not the case and then calls on her Lucky Charm, receiving a giant plastic donut. Gigantitan grabs the donut and puts it in his mouth, though upon realizing that it isn't food, he throws it away and it smashes through Marinette's room. Worried, Tom rushes to check on Marinette while Ladybug and Cat Noir defeat Gigantitian and turn him back into baby August. Tom is horrified to find that Marinette is not in her room and alerts Sabine.

Cat Noir surprised to see Marinette.

Meanwhile, Ladybug picks up August's pacifier and kisses him, causing Cat Noir to remark that he's jealous. Ladybug gives August to him and takes off. Cat Noir notices how sad August looks all of a sudden and at first believes that he misses Ladybug, but soon realizes that he wants his pacifier. Cat Noir takes off after Ladybug but is surprised when he instead finds Marinette. He comments on how Marinette always appears just after Ladybug detransforms. After thinking about it, Cat Noir realizes something. Marinette fears that he suspects that she's Ladybug, so she panics and tells the superhero that she's in love with him, even hugging him tightly. Tom overhears this and is overjoyed, so he invites Cat Noir to have brunch at his house on Sunday. Cat Noir is at first reluctant, but when Tom mentions that he'll make macarons, Cat Noir accepts. Once he leaves, Cat Noir tells August that he'd assumed that Marinette was just a fan and is surprised that she's in love with him. Meanwhile in her room, Marinette is in shock over what just happened. Tikki tells her that she shouldn't have lied about her feelings, but Marinette reminds her that Cat Noir almost found out she was Ladybug.

Tom excitedly bakes treats for Marinette and Cat Noir.

Tom is so excited about having Cat Noir over for dinner that he prepares several heart-shaped foods for the occassion. Sabine reminds him that Cat Noir never said that he was in love with Marinette, but Tom believes that he must be since everyone loves Marinette.

Adrien decides to be honest with Marinette.

Cat Noir goes into Adrien's room and detransforms. Plagg congratulates Adrien on getting himself a girlfriend, but Adrien is surprised that Marinette is in love with Cat Noir, having believed that he wasn't her type. Plagg is excited since Cat Noir dating Marinette means that they can get unlimited amounts of cheese from the Dupain-Cheng bakery, but Adrien reminds Plagg that he's in love with Ladybug. Plagg believes that dating both girls will boost his chance of success and comments to himself on how Ladybug and Marinette are actually the same girl. However, Adrien decides that he must tell Marinette the truth.

While Tom gets everything ready for the dinner, Marinette looks outside her balcony for Cat Noir. She is convinced that he won't come since he's in love with Ladybug, though Tikki is not entirely sure, believing that the amount of times Ladybug rejected him might have changed his mind. Marinette, however, insists that Cat Noir is too stubborn to change his mind.

Adrien decides to give Marinette a rose.

At the Agreste mansion, Adrien is eating alone in the dining room. Plagg reminds him that they should already be heading to Marinette's, but Adrien tells him to hide as Nathalie walks in and reminds Adrien that he has 24 minutes to finish eating before his Chinese class. Adrien asks if his father is too busy to eat with him, to which Nathalie tells him when the next scheduled dinner between him and his father is. Sadly, Adrien goes up to eat in his room. Plagg is excited since they can now go to Marinette's, but Adrien reminds him that he's only going there to inform Marinette that he isn't in love with her. Not wanting to break her heart, Adrien decides to bring the pink rose on his dinner tray as a gift for Marinette.

Marinette and Cat Noir awkwardly sit by each other.

Marinette doesn't see Cat Noir and is now sure that he's not coming, but before she leaves, Tikki spots Cat Noir heading towards the bakery. Marinette is in shock at the possibility that Cat Noir fell in love with her and changed his mind about his love for Ladybug. She decides that she must tell Cat Noir the truth but soon realizes that if she does, Cat Noir will want to know why she lied and may figure out that she's Ladybug. Marinette relucantly goes downstairs and after hearing the doorbell ring, answers it with Tom's insistance. Cat Noir greets Marinette, and Tom joyfully lifts and hugs him tight. Sabine reminds Tom to let Cat Noir breathe, so he apologizes and puts the hero down. Cat Noir and Marinette then nervously greet each other with kisses on each other's cheek. Tom takes note of how Cat Noir brought Marinette a pink rose and says that they already know each other well since Marinette adores pink, but Marinette points out that everyone likes pink and Cat Noir reminds him that they don't really know each other all that well. However, Tom calls this love at first sight and drags the two to the dining table. He then presents them with some tasty heart-shaped treats. While Cat Noir eats, Tom asks him if as a superhero, he finds the situation good, surprising Cat Noir and making him choke on his food.

Marinette pretending to be sad about Cat Noir not loving her.

Marinette tells her father that perhaps dating a superhero is too dangerous, but Tom says that it's okay since Cat Noir won't be a superhero his whole life and after he defeats Hawk Moth, he can work at the bakery with them, envisioning how great it would be. Tom then presents a heart-shaped cake, but Sabine suggets that they let Cat Noir say what he wants to say. Marinette agrees and angrily notes how Cat Noir seems to be the type to change his mind fast. Cat Noir thanks Marinette and her parents for the lovely dinner but reveals that he isn't in love with Marinette -- he loves Ladybug. Tom and Sabine are shocked, and Marinette is happy, but not wanting anyone to know, she pretends to be heartbroken and runs up to her room. Cat Noir apologizes for causing so much trouble, thanks Tom and Sabine for the invitation, and leaves. Tom is furious.

Thorns surrounding the bakery.

Hawk Moth senses how upset Tom is about Marinette getting her heart broken and sends an akuma after him. Sabine tries to comfort Tom and assures him that Marinette will find another boy that she loves, but Tom refuses to allow anyone to break his daughter's heart again. Just then, the akuma infects the rose Tom is holding. Hawk Moth offers Tom the power to protect his daughter from a world of heartbreak in return for Ladybug and Cat Noir's Miraculouses. Tom agrees and is transformed into Weredad, causing a large beanstalk-like vine to sprout from the bakery and trap Marinette on the very top of it. Cat Noir sees the vine and rushes back to the bakery. Tikki also flies up towards Marinette.

Weredad attacks Cat Noir.

Cat Noir apologizes to Sabine, blaming himself for the situation. However, Sabine tells him that it's not his fault and her husband just makes too big a deal out of everything. Cat Noir promises Sabine that he'll bring both her husband and daughter back. Sabine believes that he should wait for Ladybug, but Cat Noir is confident that she'll show up when he needs her, causing Sabine to realize just how much Cat Noir loves her. While Cat Noir climbs the vine in search of Marinette and Tom, Marinette and Tikki look for each other inside the maze of thorny vines Weredad trapped her in. When Cat Noir reaches the top of the vine, he is confronted by Weredad, who is angry to see him again after all the trouble he caused. The villain fights Cat Noir, who insists that he'll save Marinette, though Weredad believes that she is safe from heartbreak. Cat Noir tells Weredad that he didn't mean to hurt Marinette, but Weredad merely says that he's going to hurt him before attacking him, causing the hero to nearly fall off the vine. Cat Noir attempts to climb up to where Marinette is, but Weredad refuses to allow him to save his daughter. Cat Noir tells Weredad that his way of protecting Marinette will only make her lonely for the rest of her life. However, Weredad says that one day, a prince worthy of her will climb up the vine, confront him, and pluck the magic rose to free Marinette.

Marinette grabs the akumatized rose.

Marinette and Tikki continue to search for one another but have no luck. Tikki realizes that the thorn maze is magical and prevents them from finding one another. Marinette spots the akumatized rose in the middle of the maze and heads towards it, though there are several obstacles that she must pass first. Meanwhile, Cat Noir continues to battle Weredad but the villain overpowers him. Hawk Moth orders Weredad to grab his Miraculous. Before he does, Marinette reaches the rose and grabs it, releasing the akuma and deakumatizing Tom. With that, the vine begins to fall apart and Cat Noir, Tom, and Marinette all begin to fall. Tikki approaches Marinette, who transforms into Ladybug. She captures the akuma and purifies it. Cat Noir then spots Ladybug and calls out to her. Ladybug assures him that she's coming, but Cat Noir tells him to save Marinette as she's in danger. Ladybug assures Cat Noir that Marinette is safe, which pleases Cat Noir and causes him to comment on how one can't help but fall in love with her. However, he takes it back after noticing that Tom is still upset with him. Ladybug calls on her Lucky Charm and receives a sailboat. Once the three of them are in it, Cat Noir uses Cataclysm on the sailboat's hull. Then, Ladybug and Cat Noir quickly turn it into a glider for the three of them to land safely. Once on the ground, Sabine and Tom run towards each other and hug. Ladybug then uses Miraculous Ladybug to fix all the damage. Tom, Sabine, and Cat Noir then all run upstairs to check on Marinette, even though Ladybug tries to tell them that she's safe. Quickly she rushes to her bedroom and detransforms before they arrive.

Marinette assures Cat Noir that she isn’t heartbroken, followed by a hug.

Tom is happy to see his daughter safe and hugs her, noting how sad she had been because of Cat Noir. Noticing how angry her father is getting, Marinette tells him to calm down and then tells Cat Noir that Ladybug is lucky to have someone like him love her and says that they can still be friends. Cat Noir is relieved that Marinette isn't heartbroken and hugs her, calling her an amazing girl even though she isn't his number one fan. Marinette is surprised that Cat Noir thought she was his number one fan, which Cat Noir tells her is what he'd assumed when he saw her on the balcony. Sabine tells Tom that Marinette can handle her own heartbreaks and Tom forgives Cat Noir, though he does ask him if he's sure he doesn't want to work in the bakery with him, much to Marinette's annoyance.

Trivia

  • Internationally, this episode first premiered in Switzerland on RTS Play.
  • This episode was first revealed during a script reading by Portuguese (Brazil) voice actors Fabricio Vilaverde (Cat Noir) and Jéssica Vieira (Ladybug) as well as fragments of this episode being released at CCXP 2018 on 8 December 2018 (at 4:30 PM).[9]
  • This episode's title is derived from werewolf.
    • Similarly, the French title, Papa-Garou, comes from loup-garou, the French term for werewolf.
  • According to Thomas Astruc on Twitter, this episode is a tribute to fairy tales, especially 'Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku' (Absolute Destiny Apocalypse), a song by J.A Seazer.[10]
    • One of the inspirations might be "Beauty and the Beast", a French fairy tale involving an enchanted rose, a man who is placed under a spell and was cursed into a hulking monster or beast, and an imprisoned girl.
      • The rose was also kept precious, just like in the episode.
    • Other fairy tales possibly used are "Jack and the Beanstalk" with the tall plant reaching the sky, and "Sleeping Beauty" with the thorn maze.
  • August is akumatized for the third time: first in "Gigantitan" and again in the "Heroes' Day" special.
  • This is the fourth episode where a relative of the Dupain-Cheng family is akumatized, following “Bakerix”, "Kung Food" and "Befana". In this case, it is Tom Dupain.
  • Weredad started to act like Gabriel Agreste, both as himself and as Hawk Moth in regards to his son, as Weredad wanted to protect his daughter from being sad and keeping her locked up in a thorn prison without giving any thought he was would make her miserable from doing it, like Gabriel on how he barely lets his son out of the house and thinks it would be better if he is kept at home.
  • After the battle with Gigantitan, the Miraculous Ladybug is used without the summoned Lucky Charm for the first time.
    • This could mean that Ladybug broke a piece of the charm off unseen to use the superpower.
    • It could mean that the two powers aren't completely linked together and the power isn't only activated by using the lucky charm but also by some other means.
  • Cat Noir gave Marinette a rose like he did in "Glaciator".
    • Unlike in "Glaciator", the rose is pink; red roses are seen as a symbol of love (in line with Cat Noir's feelings about Ladybug), while pink roses are seen as a symbol of friendship (in line with Cat Noir's feelings about Marinette).
  • This is the fifth time Marinette and Tikki end up separated which previously occurred in "Princess Fragrance", "Sandboy", "Miraculous Shanghai" and "Reflekdoll".
  • This is the fourth time the akumatized object was not in the hands of the villain following "The Dark Owl", "Captain Hardrock", and "Style Queen".
    • Although, in "Style Queen", the object started in Style Queen's hands but then she put it in Adrien's mouth, whom she had previously turned into a glitter statue.
  • This is the first time Ladybug purifies the akuma before calling on her Lucky Charm.
  • This is the second time where Marinette's transformation sequence is not shown following "Mayura".
    • Additionally, this episode is the second time after "Mayura" where no transformation sequences are shown at all.
  • This is the fourth episode Alya Césaire doesn't appear in. However, she was briefly mentioned by Cat Noir.
  • The akuma catch scene has been reused from "Mayura" with a blue background.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Cat Noir and Ladybug deal with two akumatized villains.
  • This is the first time Ladybug summons a Lucky Charm in midair and downwards, instead of the usual direction, which is up.
    • This is the first time Cat Noir uses his Cataclysm on a Lucky Charm object and yet the second time where a Lucky Charm object breaks (excluding the broken plate in "Troublemaker") before "Robostus" and followed by "Miraculer", "Psycomedian" and "Hack-San".
    • As well as summoning a Lucky Charm after a villain's defeat.
    • Usually Ladybug always catches her Lucky Charm object but this is first time where it catches her.
  • This is also the first time Cat Noir uses Cataclysm on an object that was obscured.
  • This also the second episode where Ladybug and Cat Noir use their powers twice following "Mayura".
  • The Miraculous Ladybug (superpower) doesn't only fix the damage done by a villain, those affected by said villain's powers or Cat Noir's Cataclysm but it also has the power to heal those who are hurt as the magic ladybugs healed Cat Noir's injuries from his battle with Weredad.
  • According to Adrien this was the first time when a girl admits she's in love with him.
    • Since Marinette is unaware that Adrien is Cat Noir she actually confessed her feelings to her crush without realizing it.
  • Plagg's metaphor involving cooking pots references his knowledge of Marinette being Ladybug since "The Dark Owl". Also, when he says this, he breaks the fourth wall.
  • This is one of the few times an akuma is seen by a character before someone becomes akumatized.
    • However, this time Sabine sees the akuma, instead of Marinette or Adrien.
  • When Adrien calls Marinette "an amazing girl" as Cat Noir is a reference to what Alya said at the end of "The Bubbler".
  • Similar to "Despair Bear", Cat Noir and Marinette kiss each others cheeks for two reasons: to greet each other and is part of French tradition. Although controversial, there's no sign of either Cat Noir and Marinette showing love to each other.
  • This is the first time Marinette defeats an Akumatized villain without transforming into Ladybug.
  • This is the eighth time where the heroes appeal to reason with an akumatized villain following "Frightningale", "Riposte", "Robostus", "Volpina", "The Mime", "Rogercop" and "Stormy Weather".

Errors

The Eiffel Tower in the background after Hawk Moth sends out his akuma.

  • When Cat Noir is in Marinette's house, his ring is silver instead of black.
  • When Weredad reveals himself to Cat Noir, the latter's left costume ear disappeared.
  • When Cat Noir is holding onto a vine in front of Weredad, his ring is blue.
  • When Marinette took the rose from Cat Noir, it went through her hand.
  • Marinette's shirt is miscolored gray throughout the whole dinner.
  • In one frame when Ladybug is about de-evilize Weredad's akuma, her yo-yo seems to be out of place.
  • Before Ladybug detransformed, her civilian feet and hands can be seen in the few shots before the detransformation occurred.
  • When the Akuma is flying out of Hawk Moth's lair, the Eiffel Tower is shown in the background.
