I guess you guys might be right. But if we’re gonna cut that episode, we should at least update the first movie to have the clip of Gideon surviving be before the credits. Post credits scenes, like in Marvel movies, are typically reserved for things that will be shown again later. If there’s no in-story reveal that Gideon is alive, it just becomes weird. He’s dead, then suddenly he isn’t.
So it’s a choice of either bringing the scene of Gideon’s survival back into its original spot, or including Chapter 12. If Chapter 12 is really as non-essential as you guys say it is, I’d vote for the former option.
