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.

In the episode's B-story the mind-controlled Isabella (Karen David) visits a different kind of princess (Sheridan Smith) who had failed to RSVP for her wedding. During the musical number Isabella's tiara is knocked off returning her to her senses for the first time in days and begins the wrap-up of her wedding storyline. While not as strong as the main story, Isabella's plot thread at least begins the end of her marriage plotline as it turns out the princess didn't need a hero to save her after all.
