Western audiences originally got different episode order than the original japanese version. In season 1, 5 episodes were cut and two others were merged. It happens early on, as early as episode 2, so
episode 2 japan was cut
episode 3 japan = episode 2 western
So if you go reading the discussion for episode 2, you might be reading reactions to episode 3 instead. Same with every episode afterwards.
