The fates of Earth and Akiridion-5 both come down to this. The Eli Pepperjack, you're our only hope.
―Aja to Eli

Dogfight Days of Summer is the sixteenth episode of 3Below and the third episode of Part Two.

Official Synopsis

With General Morando's invasion of Earth imminent, Krel tries to stop the fleet's advance with unwitting help from the kids of Arcadia.





  • Morando is temporarily grounded on Akiridion-5 by Eli Pepperjack.
  • Eli gains respect from the Resistance.
  • It is revealed that Eli is allergic to avocados.
  • It is revealed that after Krel's repairs to Mother in "Moving Day", she developed an attitude of roasting people, like she did to Aja when she lost the second-to-last drone, and then later to Morando when his ship is destroyed, and eventually to Krel in "There's Something About Gwen (of Gorbon)".
  • Krel invents new and improved serrators which contains portable transduction, allowing him, Aja, and Varvatos to change between their human and Akiridion forms at will.
  • Detective Scott unintentionally foreshadows Wizards when explaining to Varvatos that "... ever since trolls literally surfaced in this town, everyone's got a theory on what's next. Vampires, wizards. My own daughter thinks the Billycraggle is real."
  • Once again, the character Gladys Groe, a Changeling spy in Trollhunters, is seen as a customer at a restaurant playing Krel's dogfight game, presumably at the same restaurant as she appeared in "Truth Be Told" as the waitress for Aja and Steve's date.
  • A blue Vespa 300 GTS Super can be seen in the magazine Detective Scott is reading while talking to Varvatos.
  • The featured quote includes a likely allusion to the famed line "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope." from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
    • This is lampshaded by Eli himself when he responds "I know I'm the last hope. I've seen the movies, okay?"
