"Third Time's A Charm", known as "Start of the New Semester! Troubling Premonition" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and fifth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on October 4, 2006, and in the US on April 7, 2007.

Jaden Yuki recalls the events of the previous two years.


This episode features no Duels, and serves as a recap of Season 2. At the end of the episode, Chancellor Sheppard remarks how much Jaden Yuki has grown during the last two years, and believes that Thelonious Viper will be able to help him release his true abilities.


  • When Jaden says to Hassleberry that Neos thanks him for his help, Hassleberry thinks Jaden is crazy and replies with some ununderstandable words, which he explains to Syrus that it's a supposed alien language, he makes the 'Live Long and Prosper' gesture used by Spock from Star Trek.


  • In the dub, Hassleberry was surprised to see Blair; however, he hadn't met her before that point. In the original, he asked Chazz who she was.

Differences in Adaption

  • Cut from the dub was the scene where Chazz discovered Blair was in his room: the reason it was cut was because he ended up walking in on her in his hot spring bath.
