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.

galavant-about-last-knight

On their journey to find recruits to help rescue Isabella (Karen David), Galavant (Harry Collett) reaches his father’s (Greg Wise) lands where he has trouble reconciling the child-loving man in front of him who runs a swordsmanship school for at-risk youth with the father who raised him. Meanwhile the growing romantic feelings between Gareth (Vinnie Jones) and Madalena (Mallory Jansen) become a problem for Sid (Luke Youngblood) who is forced to flee the kingdom and for the Queen who struggles to give Gareth a proper birthday present he can appreciate.

galavant-giants-vs-dwarves

After a fight caused by Richard (Timothy Omundson) trading away the Jewel of Valencia for an iguana he mistakenly believes to be a dragon, Galavant (Harry Collett) and Richard find themselves on opposite sides of a feud between the world’s shortest giants and largest dwarves who are remarkably similar in stature. Yes, it’s exactly as ridiculous as it sounds, and the insanity is only further fueled by the West Side Story lead in to the big rumble. Just as the battle between the remarkably similiar groups of men breaks out Roberta (Clare Foster) steps in to restore some semblance of sanity to the proceedings, end the feud, and get the heroes back on track.

galavant-bewitched-bothered-and-bewildered

Despite Richard‘s (Timothy Omundson) impassioned speech to support his cause and the fact that the former king smuggled out the jewel of Valencia (in a manner which we won’t speak of here) which could pay for a mercenary army, Galavant (Harry Collett) grows weary of his friend’s ability to screw up every situation without even trying all that hard. Focusing on the rekindled childhood friendship between Richard and Roberta (Clare Foster), Galavant attempts to fan the flames of love between the pair hoping it might prove the perfect distraction to get rid of the meddlesome king. But try as he might (including serenading the pair during a romantic dinner he arranged), our hero is unable to force Richard from his side.

galavant-aw-hell-the-king

Galavant (Harry Collett) and Richard (Timothy Omundson) make their way back to Richard’s kingdom in need of the king’s army to help rescue Isabella (Karen David) only to discover the subjects have demolished the castle, using various pieces to build up the town, and are living in a democracy that isn’t too keen on invading another kingdom. Neither Richard’s attempt to find a new role within the democracy nor Galavant’s attempt to rally the villagers to their aid proves fruitful as the pair leaves with only a single new supporter: Richard’s childhood friend Roberta (Clare Foster).

galavant-worlds-best-kiss

The second episode of the show’s Second Season gets back in the groove as Galavant (Harry Collett) and Richard‘s (Timothy Omundson) journey continues, Gareth (Vinnie Jones) struggles with both Madalena (Mallory Jansen) and his role in the kingdom – offering Sid (Luke Youngblood) a temporary position (before being thrown into the moat), and Isabella‘s (Karen David) continued attempts to free herself from Prince Harry‘s court. Although the premiere had its moments, “World’s Best Kiss” does a better job of recapturing the magic of he show’s First Season.

galavant-a-new-season-aka-suck-it-cancellation-bear

ABC’s musical adventure comedy returns for a Second Season with Galavant (Harry Collett) and Richard (Timothy Omundson) ending the travels with the pirates and returning to solid land. Focused on returning Richard to his kingdom and saving Isabella (Karen David), who has been kept prisoner these many months by her adolescent cousin (Kemaal Deen-Ellis) who plans on marrying her, Galavant’s journey is sidetracked as he and Richard become lost in the Enchanted Forest. And by Enchanted Forest I mean the gay pub in the middle of the woods run by Kylie Minogue who refuses to let the heroic leading man leave.
