Cruel Dilemma is the sixth episode of Season 1 of Code Lyoko.


Due to a favorable accident on Odd's part, which consisted of spilling candy on the keyboard of Jeremie's Computer, Jeremie's materialization program for Aelita is finished, but since Jeremie has no idea how Odd got it to work, it is only good for one use. In turn, X.A.N.A. possesses two bulldozers and sets them on the Factory to prevent Aelita's materialization program from taking place.

When trying to stop the attack, Yumi falls into the Digital Sea. To save her, Aelita gives up her materialization program, which allows Jeremie to bring back Yumi.
