Legends of Awesomeness - Shifu's Ex

When Po (Mick Wingert) learns that Shifu‘s (Fred Tatasciore) ex-girlfriend is visiting the Jade Palace the Dragon Warrior decides to try and get the former lovebirds back together not realizing that in their years apart Mei Ling (Susanne Blakeslee) has become Shifu’s most hated enemy and has only come to destroy him.

After drawing him in Mei Ling uses the Zhou Deng Soul Gem to swap bodies. In the guise of Shifu, this allows Mei Ling to order the Dragon Warrior and the Furious Five to steal the Imperial Jewels. To stop his students and save their good names, Shifu (in the body of Mei Ling) breaks out of the Jade Palace’s dungeon and set things right.

After finally discovering who is who, the Five help Shifu set a trap to get his own body back. As the episode comes to a close we learn, despite her recent actions, Shifu still has plans for his nefarious ex who I hope we may see more of as we learn Mei Ling has escaped on her way to prison. Because of their history, the complicated relationship between the pair is a nice addition to the expanded Kung Fu Panda universe.
