Tell me this doesn’t seem dark:
There’s all that stuff programmed into my head about how good and sweet the Smurfs are. I’ve watched tons of episodes (I have no idea why) reinforcing that. Still, just from the configuration, my brain expects that they are about to sacrifice Gargamel and Azrael. Something in that configuration on a lower level just overrides everything I know on a more analytical level.
I guess I never completely trusted those Smurfs.
