This week’s episode was pretty good fun but from the beginning it was clear this was the last little hurrah before something changed for the dramatic so you were always kind of waiting for the reveal. That said, it didn’t let you down in the end.
The tour is finally done and the Princes need to head their separate ways except that there’s a festival about to be held in Ani’s kingdom so they decide to join in there first. Of course there’s a legend about those who have the last dance at the festival and each of the princes, and Teo, attempt to ask Ani for a dance. Some of the reasons they are unsuccessful are truly ridiculous but in the over the top manner that this show kind of got right in the beginning so it kind of makes you smile even as you roll your eyes at Narek running from a caterpillar or Teo just chickening out and screaming at the sunset.
I won’t tell you what happens at the conclusion of the dance but it does set up a nice path for this show to follow to the climax and so hopefully this show will end on a reasonably high note. It’s never been great but it was good fun to start with and it kind of looks like we’re getting back to that for the end.
