Prince Zed and Romeo...

One of the numerous examples of cost-cutting in She-Ra's season two appeared in the episode "Romeo and Glimmer". In the season one episode "The Peril of Whispering Woods" we see Horde Prime's son Prince Zed arrive on Etheria. The character was memorable, as was the story. In the season two episode "Romeo and Glimmer" the character of Glimmer was given a love interest, that of Horde Corporal Romeo. Sadly, for some reason, Filmation decided to reuse the design of the memorable Prince Zed, albeit making him slightly older. Even more baffling was the decision to stage some scenes that reflected Prince Zed's appearance, such as the character laying on a bed recovering from a battle with the rebels...

The "Mr. Spock" ears were a dead giveaway. :) Well, due to all of the similarities, I like how the background scenery is completely different between the settings shown in these images ... It would have been so easy to use the same scenery for both moments, which is usually the case between different episodes. Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Anyone else dislikes that they look a lot like human beings? Would had been far better if they resembled Hordak as this pretty much goes against looks not being important. "Oh, look how pretty they are! They can't be really evil!"

I think this outfit is more like an officers uniform as opposed to the Horde Trooper armour (which can after all be warn by regular people as well)
