A dramatic direction of death!

"Sweet Bee's Home" was easily Tom Tataranowicz's best work on the She-Ra series, and this scene below is an example of why. When Hordak threatens a robot we expect the trap door treatment, a self-programmed destruction, or something equally as silly. But what happens is quite dramatic because of the direction. It is quite a startling image to see a Horde Trooper staring down the barrel of Hordak's blast cannon, but what makes this scene work so well is the exterior shot showing all four Horde ships and a large explosion coming from one of them. It always strikes me as a more striking scene because Tom chose not to show the violent outcome...

Yes, that was a safe way to carry out the scene for young viewers ... I felt bad for the poor Horde Trooper, actually!

Hordak's harsh and arrogant tone is well acted out when he tells the robot, "I told you I'd hold you responsible!" :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
