Willow - The Whispers of Nockmaar / Wildwood

"The Whispers of Nockmaar" give us the characters stuck in a haunted castle which they escape only to be taken prisoner by the not-at-all-scary Bone Reavers in "Wildwood." Over the two episode's Elora (Ellie Bamber) confidence and magical abilities will continue to improve and Kit (Ruby Cruz) will, with excruciating slowness, begin to evolve into someone remotely likable and not a the character we're rooting to see killed off in the next skirmish. We see the darkness from Prince Graydon (Tony Revolori) past leading to some concerns from Elora. Either the guy is a possession magnet for evil or there's something seriously wrong with him. We'll also meet another group who Thraxus (Amar Chadha-Patel) double-crossed, and Jade (Erin Kellyman) will make a discovery that will change her view of the world.

Five episodes in, the show remains a bit of a mixed bag. Willow (Warwick Davis) remains very much a secondary character to the story, although Elora will learn that his legend is exaggerated she still remains his pupil for now. As has been the case in every episode so far, the journey to rescue Prince Airk (Dempsey Bryk) makes no real headway and we get glimpses of the Crone's minions (odd monsters who chase our fellowship into the forest) who are nothing more than mindless monster henchmen.
