Galavant - The One True King (To Unite Them All)

Coming to a more definitive close that last season’s cliffhanger ending, Galavant‘s season finale finds a way to give every character their own moment in the sun this time around including Sid (Luke Youngblood) who arrives with a host of extras to help his friends fight off Madalena‘s (Mallory Jansen) zombie horde. That doesn’t mean that the show doesn’t tease us with what Season Three might hold (sign me up!), but if “The One True King (To Unite Them All)” is the show’s finale it’s a fitting one that let’s the show ride off unknown on a high note.

Galavant - Battle of the Three Armies

Setting up the season finale, the penultimate episode of Galavant‘s sophomore season finally brings all our characters to the same battlefield as Galavant (Harry Collett), Richard (Timothy Omundson), and their zombie army join the fight between Hortencia and Valencia. The war doesn’t exactly go as planned for anyone as Madalena‘s (Mallory Jansen) choice to invoke the power of the D’DEW costs her Gareth‘s (Vinnie Jones) affection but also turns the zombie horde against all the living soldiers forcing Gareth to choose his best friend’s side against the woman he loves.

Galavant - Do the D'Dew

“Do the D’DEW” gets its title from the dark arts of Wormwood (Robert Lindsay) on the eve of war between Valencia and Hortencia. While Gareth (Vinnie Jones) wants to murder his way through Hortencia the old fashioned way, Madalena (Mallory Jansen) interest is piqued. The Queen’s willingness to do whatever it takes to win the war, including signing over her soul (and possibly harming a baby even when it isn’t required for the spell), frightens even Wormwood into second-guessing who he has aligned himself with.

Galavant - Love and Death

After Sid (Luke Youngblood) accidentally stabs Galavant (Harry Collett) with the knight’s own sword, the group speeds to a healer (Reece Shearsmith) in hopes of saving his life. While our hero spends most of the episode dead, complete with a song and dance number featuring Death (Eddie Marsan) and a few familiar faces in the great beyond, the sudden demise of Galavant brings Richard (Timothy Omundson) and Roberta (Clare Foster) closer together. By the end of the episode the heroes are back in action, along with their own zombie army (cutesy of the healer) that may or may not be of any use in the coming battle.
