It seems like a forever and a day ago watching the first of the two. We last left off with Vegeta losing the will to fight. Friez's about to make his final move when Goku finally shows up. Frieza notices that Goku looks very familiar, no doubt since Bardock was one of the last people to try and save Planet Vegeta. A deeply injured Vegeta tells Goku to defeat Frieza, and after telling Freiza that Goku IS a super Saiyan, Frieza blasts him through the heart. As a dying wish, Vegeta cries to Goku to defeat Freiza as to give vengeance for all the Saiyans who were killed by Frieza. Goku makes him a grave and the fight between him and Frieza start (end of episode 42). As the battle starts, Frieza quickly realizes Goku is stronger than he expected. Gohan, Krillin and Piccolo decide to watch the battle from a distance since the blasts being exchanged are quite strong. Goku at one point realizes that Frieza is only able to detect his movements by sight so he uses that to his advantage to trick him. However the damage is minimal and after a short stint, Frieza tricks Goku and exploding ball, paralyzing him and nearly killing him. Piccolo however informs Gohan and Krillin that neither are fighting at full power.
