Mutiny is the twenty-second episode of Code Lyoko Evolution and the overall one hundred and seventeenth episode of Code Lyoko.


Laura and Jeremie complete their virus. Laura is keen to implement it, now understanding what a dangerous threat X.A.N.A. is, but Jeremie insists that they wait until Anthea is finally found. Laura, however, has other ideas.

Unfortunately, William is being mistreated by the others again. Laura approaches him and asks if he would like to come with her and plant the virus, asking whether he wants all of this to be over. William is hesitant, saying he's a part of the group and they're best and close friends now.

When he offers a book of poetry to Yumi, he is turned down as she has a math test to study for. Laura comes back and asks if they really are his best friends. She compares herself to him, saying that they are alike in many ways, both easily misunderstood. William reluctantly agrees to the unauthorized mission.

Laura gets William to the Cortex without much trouble, guiding him as he pilots the Skid. But when he gets to the Cortex, Laura has some difficulty programming the MegaPod due to some glitches. Suddenly, dozens of Krabs appear and William becomes panicked since he is outnumbered, pushing Laura to work faster but she rebukes him, as she needs time to fix the problem. To make matters worse, the Scyphozoa appears behind William's back, much to his terror. He yells at Laura to devirtualize him immediately, but she gets confused as to what he's really after - the Megapod or devirtualization - and doesn't understand why they should abort the mission. William desperately attempts to use his Zweihänder to devirtualize himself, but it is immediately destroyed by one of the Krabs before he could even pick it up. The Scyphozoa then ensnares William and is ready to possess him again.

Yumi enters the lab, wondering where William was because he failed to turn up to an obstacle course in gym class, which would have been a good opportunity to show off, and it was strange for him to skip it. She questions Laura until she notices that William's virtual icon has become black. Furious, she gives Laura a short lecture on how William was possessed by X.A.N.A. for a long time before Laura's arrival, and it was very difficult to free him from X.A.N.A.'s clutches. Laura simply states that she did not know. Yumi calls the others in and goes into the Cortex with Ulrich and Aelita to rescue William. Jeremie furiously scolds and rebukes Laura, angry about what she tried to do without consulting him first.

On the Cortex, the Scyphozoa has not managed a full possession. William is being held up above the ground by its tentacles, surrounded by a black aura. He raises his hand and a digital sound comes from his mouth, commanding the Krabs. The three Lyoko Warriors can't do anything against the massive army of monsters, and they take shelter behind the Megapod. They decide that talking to William and trying to wake him up is the best course of action, acting as a distraction so someone else can get closer to the Scyphozoa and sever the mental connection between it and William.

Ulrich fights William, constantly goading him to try and remind him of their romantic rivalry and his life on Earth. William slowly becomes more and more human-like again, eventually allowing the Scyphozoa's tentancles to be cut off. His black aura disappears and William returns to normal, thanking the others for saving him, while all the monsters self-destruct in retreat. This is when Odd arrives ready to kick some monster butt, only to be very disappointed at the empty landscape.

A furious Jeremie finally puts his foot down, as Laura has definitely gone way too far this time for endangering both William and the virus they worked so hard to create. He tells her that he is going to launch a special return to the past and fully erase her memory. Laura doesn't seem worried about it, and smugly says the program won't work on her since she had altered it. But Jeremie contradicts and states that by making a new version to focus solely on her; he can, in fact, erase all of her memories of the Factory, the lab, the team, Lyoko, and even X.A.N.A. and immediately does so.

  • This is the first episode in which Yumi's gym clothes are seen in live action.

    • It is also only the second time the Scyphozoa is defeated, after Season 4's The Lake.
