The Bog-ey Man of Festermouth

[exclaiming, grunting]
- [peaceful music plays]
- [birds sing]
Oi. I'm gonna buy me own boat.
Uh, this one's, uh, apricots, uh
And over here, are the raisins.
Right. Let's hurry up
and get these two unloaded.
[grunting, straining]
Ooh, some heavy raisins.
- [groaning]
- [clattering]
Oi. You hear something?
- [yells]
- [exclaiming]
I-I-It's Veruca DuMont! [exclaims]
- [suspenseful music plays]
- [gasping]
This is huge. Tie her up.
Let's bring her to the knights ourselves.
Wonder if she's still got
a bounty on her head.
- [groaning]
- [dramatic music plays]
[fast-paced music plays]
[serene music plays]
Look at this thing.
It's going to fall apart any moment.
I miss Luthera's Shield.
Weirdest name for a sword.
- [grunting]
- Whoa!
- [snarls]
- Hey, it's not about the sword.
It's about the warrior who wields it!
[grunting, exclaiming]
It's a little about the sword.
I've never made it much up north.
[Blade] Alfie always said
he'd take me one day.
He loved being in nature.
[Akna] Oh, yes!
He was particularly good
at identifying the local flora. [chuckles]
[groans] No one interesting
lives out this far.
The person who sent Alfie
after the Tianshang Weapons might.
And they may even know
how to destroy them.
[Po] What are we thinking?
A big pit of acid?
A mystical energy blast?
Oh! Or a dragon that spits electric flame?
- Or giant pliers?
- [dramatic music plays]
[Po] You know what I mean?
Yeah, no, not pliers.
Um, Blade, you okay?
Sorry. It's just
I spent my entire childhood
wondering what these missions were like.
If it makes you feel better, you weren't
missing out on much. [chuckles]
[Blade] How's that?
I-I meant, like, Alfie wasn't really
into the whole knighthood thingamabob.
[Akna] Like, he was kinda
over it.
Thank you.
Thank you for the history lesson
on my own brother, but I think I'd know
if Alfie was "over" the job
he'd worked towards his whole life!
[sighs] We were doing so well
and now she hates me.
- Nah.
- [scoffs] Akna.
Can you please keep up?
You know what? It takes time to get on
Blade's good side, and I mean a long time!
Sometimes you think
you're on her good side
only to find out it's a trap
and you're just nestled in a cave,
hidden from the elements,
and as good as that cave seems,
it's a bad side cave.
[ominous music plays]
It's been a bad side cave all along.
But anyway,
no worries.
I'll teach you a bit of the Po-charm
and you'll be friends in no time.
Just follow my lead.
This is going to be a disaster.
- [eerie music plays]
- [wind whistles]
[creaking, clattering]
Uh, where is everyone?
Get in there. Blade digs assertiveness.
[takes deep breath]
Let's ask around in the next town.
[scoffs] The next town isn't for miles.
- Don't worry, we'll find something.
- Uh, yeah! Never give up!
- You think I'd give up?
- It's an expression.
Hey. Check it out!
[as female doll] Ooh, Count Thistleton,
the Queen said
you had died on the battlefield.
[as male doll] Oh no,
that was my triplet brother Reginald,
and now my other triplet brother Ramsey
has stolen the fiefdom of Roseport.
It seems this war isn't over yet.
But first [imitating kissing]
[as female doll] Ooh!
- [Po] Uh
- [exclaiming]
Ah, so the Queen
finally acknowledges we exist.
You're talking to me?
Well, you are a knight, aren't you?
My name's Edgar.
Follow me. I can show you to the bog.
See? There's interesting people out here.
Oh, talking to inanimate objects, I get.
Please do not tell me
you're as incompetent as the last one, eh?
[Edgar] Now, what was his name?
It was, uh Alan.
What? No. Um, Arnold. Uh, no. Mm
Yeah, him.
- [gasps]
- [Edgar] What a dud!
Wait, what do you mean by dud?
[gasps] Demons! [yelps]
Hey! What's your problem?
[atmospheric music plays]
Well, you look friendly.
Used to be a lot of folks
here in Festermouth
with big dreams
of expanding into a real town.
And now it's just me and my dolls.
Mm. I see.
Can you tell me more about the knight?
Aye, the monsters.
That's why you're here, right?
We asked the Queen for help forever ago,
but the knight she sent went into the bog,
came out, and just left. [grunts]
I've been waiting 15 years
for someone to finish the job.
Why are you still here?
Well, I couldn't just abandon my dolls!
Wouldn't want to anger them, would you?
Alfie left without explaining why?
Well, he did shout "Gotta run!"
as he was taking off.
That doesn't sound like Alfie at all.
Agree with her.
Yes. You're right, Blade.
Very unlike him. Super weird.
That's not exactly
what you were saying before.
Uh, I, uh Well Hmm.
Which is it?
Both? Uh, neither? Yeah.
My brother wouldn't just give up
on a mission like that.
There has to be more to the story.
[atmospheric music plays]
We'll take care of
that bog monster for you.
- [gasps] Really?
- Seriously?
Whatever's in there is the answer to
what happened to Alfie. I'm sure of it.
Wait, is there a reward?
A single doll of your choice.
- Deal.
- Oh, gi [groans]
- [atmospheric music plays]
- [frogs croak, birds caw]
- Hm?
- [rustling]
[gasps, groans]
[tense music plays]
[Rukhmini] Mm? What do you see?
I don't know. I guess it's nothing!
Check it out.
This clump over here
looks just like the mayor.
- Ah. I wonder if he got re-elected.
- [doll squeaks]
It's getting dark.
Maybe it'd be best if we got some rest
and came back in the morning?
- Yeah, Blade. Maybe we should
- We have to keep moving.
The answer is here, I can feel it.
Is that what you're feeling?
'Cause I'm feeling like
this place wants to eat us.
[yells] Demons!
Hey! Will you calm down?
It's just a little overg
- [yells]
- [dramatic music plays]
- [Blade] Bog monster!
- [shrieking]
[yelling, grunting]
[arm growls]
It's impervious to my feet kicks!
Rukhmini! Uh, guys, it got Rukhmini!
Let's see how you do against this!
I told you
it's the warrior who wields the blade.
There's nothing inside. It's
[Blade] It's just moss.
- [growling]
- [yells]
Akna, I need you to focus.
Focus? Focus on what?
The dying? Not dying?
My focus is too focused on death stuff!
[Akna] What do I do?
What do I do? What do I do?
[Blade] Akna!
Focus on fighting!
You know what? I'm sick of your 'tude!
Sorry my first instinct
isn't to launch into battle
when I see giant moss monsters,
o-o-or that I say the wrong thing
every time because you're in a bad mood.
Whatever your deal is, stop,
because I'm not taking it anymore!
[Akna] Who said you could leave?
Get back here!
I think I like you when you're angry.
[arm growls]
[dramatic music plays]
Who dares disturb me?
All right, I do not have time for this!
Give us back our friends,
you overgrown, moss monster-thing!
Ah, yes. Monster.
Haven't heard that one before.
We came seeking answers,
but if you continue to attack,
we will defend ourselves.
That's what they all say.
[dramatic music plays]
[muffled groaning]
I kept my word. Now, leave me be.
- [growling]
- [grunting]
Kept your word to who?
Tell me!
[sighs] Seriously?
The knight.
- [monster] He promised me peace.
- [gasps]
But now you've broken that promise.
Are you the one
who sent him after the Tianshang Weapons?
You know the Tianshang Weapons?
[monster] Yes, I see the resemblance.
[groans menacingly]
Attacking villagers,
terrorizing this town.
By order of the Queen,
I'm taking you in
to answer for your crimes.
I terrorized them?
They came to my home, destroyed my bog.
Do you know how hard it is
to maintain moss?
Mm Not hard?
I've lived in this bog
for over a hundred years,
my family for thousands before me.
Ever since that village showed up,
I haven't had a moment's peace.
They call my home ugly, call me a monster,
so yeah, I defended myself.
There are two sides to every story.
In some, I'm the monster.
In others, you are.
[atmospheric music plays]
[sighs] I hear your words.
And I became a knight
to help those who felt helpless.
To make the world a more peaceful place.
Hm. You're different than
the others that have come before.
Willing to do more than what you're told.
Willing to make sacrifices for what is
For what is For what is [sneezes]
For what is For what is right.
Tell me, Knight.
Have you heard of the Tianshang Weapons?
Huh. So it was the monster of the bog
who sent my brother on this mission?
Great. We're back to the monster stuff.
I have a name, you know!
But does anyone ever ask it? No.
Much easier to call me a monster
just because I'm old and damp
and can use big moss hands with my magic.
It's Duncan, by the way.
But why did you send Alfie
on this mission?
Few knew about the weapons,
but it was only a matter of time
before they fell into the wrong hands,
and then we'd all be in trouble.
Unless a proud, brave, selfless knight
could find and destroy them first.
[Duncan] To be honest,
I thought he would die.
But then he came back with a Storm Wheel.
He promised I'd be left alone. Promised!
[Duncan] But now here you are
hacking at my moss,
and asking me all these questions.
Did you destroy it? Do you know how?
Enough! I'm done talking to you!
[gasps, grunts]
We need answers, Duncan!
[Duncan] Oh, now you call me by my name?
- [grunting]
- [groans]
[exclaiming] Wow!
No, wait. Duncan, wait
We found the other weapons.
Ha! Nice try.
Even that knight barely got one.
[Akna] It's true.
I helped Alfie get the first wheel,
in Tikal, and we just got the second.
[groaning] The whip was hidden in
the walking ruins of a giant rock monster.
And the gauntlet was in China,
and the helmet was
Actually, I don't really know.
That one kinda came to us.
But we have them!
[Po grunts]
[dramatic music plays]
Then where are they?
Hidden. From the knights.
We don't trust them either.
- [panting]
- [soft music plays]
Please, how do we destroy the weapons?
If I tell you what I told him,
will you promise to never come back?
We promise.
- [groans]
- [atmospheric music plays]
The only way to destroy the weapons is
to bring them to where they were forged,
the ancient city of Tianshang.
Please tell me that's close by?
Close, but far.
[Duncan] Sunken.
The ruins were swallowed up
when the Ancient Masters broke the world.
But legend says it still exists,
somewhere deep under the city of a-a-ah
The city of Ah?
[sneezes, sniffs]
No. The city of London.
- [gasps]
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
How do you know about all this
if you never leave your bog?
Because my ancestors' souls
are trapped inside those weapons.
[gasps] You're descended
from the evil Ancient Masters?
Evil, eh?
Two sides to every story, remember?
Got a big reward in our future.
I'm gonna buy me own boat.
No, wait A boat dealership.
[crewman] Oh yes.
- [groaning]
- [crewman] Ah, you're awake.
Where's your brother, eh?
Quite the bounty on his head, and all, eh?
Murdered. By the bear. Luthera.
Talk of the town, she is!
Knights chasing her north, last I heard.
Mind grabbing me an apple?
I'm famished. Starving.
- Won't be worth as much dead, will I?
- Ooh, no.
Not risking you using your freaky powers
on that apple or something.
Sun's out, boys.
No more magic for me.
[dramatic music plays]
Sh. It'll be our little secret.
[chuckles] Heading north, are we?
- [groaning]
- See you soon, little bear.
So the bog monster's
related to the Dark Army.
Does that mean they're
a bunch of beavers with head colds?
[imitates explosion]
Excuse me.
I-I know I haven't been kind to you.
It's just that I've had
this version of my brother in my head
for the last 15 years,
and you've made me realize
there's a lot about him that I don't know.
I'm jealous!
I-I'm jealous
you got to know a side of him I never did.
[emotional music plays]
Yeah, I get that.
But both things can be true.
He wanted to be a knight,
and he also felt constrained by it.
[Blade] He was my brother,
but I'd like to know more about
who he was as your friend.
So how do we find
this buried underground city?
My brother was thorough.
Every mission, every task,
he took extensive notes.
That sounds like Alfie.
If he found the way
to the ancient city of Tianshang,
it's written somewhere in his study,
in our home, Landreth.
[laughs excitedly] What!
We're going to House Blade?
And that means
a very different kind of monster awaits
[suspenseful music plays]
My mother.
[Edgar] Oh!
Oh, hey! What happened?
Did you get rid of the monsters?
- [laughs awkwardly]
- Uh
- Gotta run!
- Mm-hmm.
- Gotta go, bye!
- Sorry! No take-backs!
Oi! Get back here!
Oh, not again.
Not again!
