Episode 6: Dungeons and Dragon Lady

The gang gets super captured and Gal gets switched with Cook for hanging, but thankfully Richard realizes before it’s too late. What he doesn’t realize is that someone’s coming….

Sid: I am five seconds from killing your dumbass my damn self.
Sid: I am five seconds from killing your dumbass my damn self.

Sid is guilt tripping the hell out of Isabella, trying to motivate Galavant into coming up with plan to get them out of this mess and on the verge of taking over Gareth’s job and killing everyone for being gigantic gits.

Galavant: When did you go from the fun kind of crazy to the crazy kind of crazy?

Galavant is realizing that Madalena is not quite who he wants her to be, Isabella might be the woman he actually loves and that this quest most definitely isn’t what he wants.

Madalena is slowly but surely seizing power from Richard even as she plans to keep Galavant as her pretty boytoy.

It's time to trip some balls y'all!

Richard is trying to figure out why he’s not truly evil or even firm so he heads off at Cook’s suggestion to go see the magician Xanax, who gives him a potion that is only lightly, I hope, tinged with anus. During his spirit walk he realizes he’s always been second choice to everyone, including his parents who wanted his brother Kingsley to be king, and he’s still behaving as if he’s is. And more importantly he’s tired of doing so.

This was so much easier when I found you repugnant
Isabella: This was so much easier when I found you repugnant

Isabella is totally in love with Galavant but also really, really wants to save her parents and people and like a good future queen is more pressed about the good of all over her personal wants.

Gareth: Come on, come on....I know you've got evil in there somewhere
Gareth: Come on, come on….I know you’ve got evil in there somewhere

Gareth is done with Richard’s inability to be truly evil. However he’s not 100% on board with torturing and killing tiny little Isabella especially since that order is coming from Madalena. What he does know is that despite himself he loves Richard, but he’s not sure that love is enough anymore, especially as Madalena’s way better at being evil than Richard will ever be.  

How? How do I end up in these situations?

Cook is just trying to stay unhung at this point.

 The episode ends with Madalena’s Batman Gambit coming into fruition: Kingsley shows up and throws Richard so far off his game that he immediately regresses to who he was when the show started, everyone else is stuck in the dungeons and there is pretty much no hope on the horizon.

It just got real y’all.
