Lori is Missing is fifth episode of the Cybersix animated series.
Data 7 is woken up by a loud noise in the underground subway and finds out about José's plan to rob Meridiana's national bank. Meanwhile, Lori Anderson daydreams in class while Adrian Seidelman recites Ah! Sunflower by William Blake and so sends her to the principal's office. Lori accidentally comes across Adrian's personal information there, including his home address, and so plans a visit. That night, she sees Cybersix through the keyhole speaking to Data 7 out of view, and thinks it's Adrian. She leaves in jealousy and reveals this to Lucas, who is shocked and angered and gets into a fight with Adrian over this. The two leave on bad terms and only meet again after Lori is kidnapped by José and declared missing. They had accidentally bumped into each other and caused them to scatter their floppy disks on the ground and, in the confusion, Lori accidentally wanders off with an important one that causes her to become kidnapped. Cybersix rescues Lori and stops José's plans. By the end, Cybersix, Lucas and Lori part on better terms.
Differences with the comicEdit
- In the beginning, the poem Adrian Seidelman quotes in class is "Ah! Sun-Flower" by William Blake.
- This is the entire poem:
"Ah Sun-flower! weary of time, Who countest the steps of the Sun: Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the travellers journey is done. Where the Youth pined away with desire, And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow: Arise from their graves and aspire, Where my Sun-flower wishes to go."
- The meeting between Lori and José is different in the comics found in Chapter 15.
- The plot is also similar to Chapter 14.
- Lori wears different earrings when visiting Adrian.
- Lori, along with Miao Yashimoto, are among the characters to know Adrian's home address.
- Details of Adrian's background are revealed, such as his work experience.
- Some information are also stereotypically Canadian as the animated series is a Canadian production.
- Lucas's line near the end of the episode, "Great, now I gotta run." is a clear callback to an earlier conversation with Adrian where his comical advice for dealing with Lori is to run. Hence, the line, in response to Lori saying Lucas is "not so bad looking" would be more appropriately delivered jokingly and not seriously. This was likely a mistake.
- The fight scene between Adrian and Lucas is featured in the Ending Theme, although it is edited to be shorter in length.
- José is wearing an outfit from the comics, seen when he is driving the drill machine.
