Dornus violently attacks Harkon, who tries to counter the dark magic used by trying to switch to any animal that were helping be free. Instead, Dawnus calls upon the power of an unknown God. And together they bind hark on into a combined form between beasts. Part owl, part bear. It's totally possible and we thought of it first. Harkon is overwhelmed by Dornus and his forces, and is captured however Dutch believes his old friend has been lost forever.
On board the flying ship called The Harpy's Howl that is now crossing the stormy Catalidian, Dutch begins an attack against his own sailors, having already killed the guards below deck. Meanwhile, the heroes below, having just met, break free of the brig. Strangely, and without feeling the need to question how or why, Freya, Morrigan and Kaa'Riin find familiar weapons in three suspiciously placed chests, we are yet to discover how they all got here, or how Freya doesn't find her bow. But trust me, there's a reason.
They find their way to the flying ship's deck, where Dutch says, "Where the **** have you princesses been?" in what must only be described as an extraordinary moment of foreshadowing, before going on to threaten Freya, "Who the **** are you?" and preparing to fire one of his many guns. Kaa'Riin dives across in front of Freya, but Dutch is actually shooting at one of the golems behind her. That was close!
Then the girls meet Lewt. He's really nice and very cute.
After mostly defeating the golems, and their many dismantled pieces, and after calling each other some names, the girls watch as giant tentacles launch from the sea and pluck The Harpy's Howl from above the waves.
Episode Two - Lost at Sea: During the fight, a series of important gems are flung free from Dutch's person. The girls are instantly keen to grab them all. The tentacles are also interested, apparently attracted by magic, certainly interested in Kaa'Riin's axe. When Dutch goes overboard, he sees more than just a sea creature. He sees some kind of bluish-purple face attached to it. The face belongs to a yet named being a very powerful one. Only recently freed.
The being, having already empowered it so further through the collection of the soul gems, including the one holding Freya's stepfather, releases Dutch and the ship, temporarily content.
The girls subsequently run the ship aground near a watchtower on Kalee. As they escape, a remaining golem sailor is destroyed by a burst of power from the tower, although it appears to fail or run out of power as it prepares to fire again. The girls, with Lewt and an unconscious Dutch, rush to a nearby Shenanigans Irish Pub to rest. During the night items are stolen from the girl's room and they wake to see two blonde haired girls (Freya's original signature look) escaping to the town centre. While making their way to the town's market to buy Autumn Root and Sniffleshade (ingredients required to help Dutch), the girls are surprised to discover that Morrigan is well known and somewhat feared.
Recognizing the two blonde girls stealing more stuff from the markets, the girls give chase, but not before seeing a portal surrounded by statues, one of which has been destroyed, leaving Morrigan to reach down and lift up the stone form of her own decapitated head.
Despite an excellent chase through the village, the guards managed to capture the thieves first, who subsequently escape by changing genders and playing innocent. The guards ask Morrigan for direction, consolidating the idea that she has great power here.
Episode Three - The seaside village of Bellisan: Returning to Dutch and Lewt, the girls manage to bring the Leonin back to consciousness, and he sets about answering some loosely considered questions. They are interrupted by a sudden attack nearby, a powerful series of explosions, huge, colourful shots of magic hurled from across the sea, or from under it, bombarding the nearby watchtower. They rush to the area with the rest of the village, and Bellisan's mayor, whom they quickly kill without provocation. None whatsoever. Zero.
They steal his hand.
They also display it to the people of the village and think that this is a good idea. Not recognizing that Morrigan is part of the group. The city guards give chase as the girls make a run for the tower, which is under attack. They also think this is a good idea. At the top of the tower, they see a wizard casting spells to protect it but when they reach the door at the entrance, they find they can't get in.
In fact, the door to the tower is a bit of a jerk and won't let them in until they pass some sort of test. The girls employ some feminine wiles, and eventually make their way inside. It takes longer than it should.
Despite being under attack, the insides of the tower are designed to stop intruders and, as such, the girls find it difficult to get to the top of the tower to offer support while overcoming a series of test. The girls also see an assassin climb by the window.
Finally, reaching the tower top, the girls almost thwart what appears to be some sort of assassination, but are instead, blamed for it.
Episode Four - All along the watchtower: With the wizard gone, the towers shield quickly falls, and as the tower collapses, the girls rush inside. They see the assassin touch a map left on a table, a map created by a powerful and ultimately confused wizard called the Krujian that takes you "where you need to be". All three girls touch the map.
Morrigan instantly follows the assassin to a new tower, (one already being attacked by ice magic from another tower on a nearby island) where the assassin plans to kill another wizard. Freya is almost transported to her home in the Fortress of the Orchestral Sands, but is yanked back to be of Morrigan at the last moment. Kaa'Riin finds herself in a field surrounded by warped trees that are attacking a bear. The bear is another member of the Kalishtari that is a descendant of those trapped in their shape centuries before. Kaa'Riin helps it escape, but is herself overwhelmed by the trees. Suddenly, roaring down from the mountains, the rest of the Kalishtari Druids also trapped his bears storm in to save her and remind her of her wild shape powers. Kaa'Riin quickly chooses her bear shape.
