Season 2, Episode 3 – Graymark
After last week’s episode, this one was a bit simpler with few plotlines. Eretria catches up with Wil and Mareth and they travel to Graymark along with everyone’s favorite hot and capable bounty hunter to rescue Allanon. Meanwhile, General Riga tortures Allanon in a futile attempt to find out the location of the codex.
Queen Tamlin proceeds with her plan to put Lyria on the throne of Aborlon and King Ander finally agrees to marry her. Wil’s plan to get Allanon to save his uncle goes horribly awry (shocking!) and they both end up captive. Riga starts bleeding Wil to death to convince Allanon to reveal the codex location. Mareth and Eretria get into the fortress and Mareth finds Allanon’s staff and uses it to disable Riga. They then rescue Allanon and Wil (who looks like he’s lost a gallon of blood at that point) and then fight their way through Riga’s men.
Our thoughts on the episode:
- Mareth and Eretria are seriously badass
- Any excuse to have Allanon and Wil shirtless!
- Allanon has about 18 lives, he’s like 2 cats
- The Crimson’s symbol reminds me of the Wonder Woman symbol
- Wil must have used plenty of magic to lose that much blood and survive
- What’s going to happen when Ander finds out that Catana is dead?
- Will Ander actually marry Lyria?
