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.

As the resurrected Galavant (Harry Collett) and his friends set off with their (basically useless) zombie army Isabella (Karen David) discovers Hortencia has no weapons nor army to speak of to defend themselves but can't bring herself to acquiesce to Madalena's ridiculous demands. Richard (Timothy Omundson) and Roberta (Clare Foster) embrace their burgeoning romance, highlighted in a Grease-style duet, but even that fades when Roberta chooses to leave the company rather than watch Richard's inevitable (and likely gruesome) death on the battlefield. Things look bleak for our heroes as the season nears its conclusion.
