Balgus already said it, but I agree.

"The Cats encounter a group of paper warriors with a dark secret."

Maybe the "dark secret" is that the paper warriors are the bad guys, and thus the ghostly things they are fighting are not evil. Therefore the Sword, like in the OS, is refusing to be used against an innocent being. And until Lion-O learns to keep an open mind instead of just going on first impressions, he can't master Sight Beyond Sight.

I didn't even think of it at that angle. I figured the forrest itself was disabling the sword. Good theory.

I didn't even think about the forest blocking the Sword. I thought the one elephant sent them to this forest because the Sword's powers would be stronger there. That could be part of it too.

It's just a continuation of the lessons Lion-O has to learn. In the last episode he was very quick to resolve the issue by going after the Wraiths which brought upon the Rock Giant.

In this one he will again probably be quick to decide that the resolution is to use the sword to vanquish the spirits rather then get all of the information first; that the forest may be trying to protect it's self from the paper warriors.

Remember, the Elephants said everything has a balance. The paper warriors may be throwing the forest out of balance by exceedingly wanting more trees for paper.

Holy Shinto!

Well, it is Japanese anime after all.

I wondered if the chief paper priest was actually voiced by Matthew Mercer dropping down his voice a register.

I think I would have forgotton again that it is airing tonight if I hadn't seen this post. Yay. I'll hold off watching the previews since it airs in just a few hours.
