Black Steel of the Equinox

[exclaiming, grunting]
[gasps, snarls]
[mysterious music plays]
[music intensifies]
Mother? What are you doing here?
I'm here to help.
[grunts] Nope.
- Mm?
- Mm-mm.
- Uh, sweet! Welcome!
- [gasps]
No! No, not sweet! You followed us?
I couldn't let you run off again.
Just, please come home, Luthera,
and let's talk through all of this.
Before someone gets hurt.
We're not afraid of getting hurt.
Yeah. Love it, even.
[groans] What's so special
about an old well, anyway?
[gasps] Oh.
[mystical music plays]
Why is How Oh
What is this place?
This is where we finish Alfie's mission.
[dramatic music plays]
North. North. How far north
did those bloody bears walk?
[stomach rumbling]
[atmospheric music plays]
- [rumbling]
- [Veruca groans]
[atmospheric music plays]
So, dear brother, what is the plan?
You on the throne by the next full moon.
And I know precisely
when we need to strike.
- [rustling]
- [tense music plays]
[grunts, groans]
Release me!
Well, well. I'd heard you were on holiday.
[Alfie] Well, I just got back in town.
I wonder how the Queen will react
when she hears of your treasonous plot.
Well, I don't suppose
she'd be too pleased at all.
I guess we'll just have to make sure
no one's around to tell her, eh, Klausy?
[Veruca] Perhaps we should send Sir Alfred
on a permanent holiday.
You know what? I agree.
I think it's time I should be going.
[thunder crashes]
[dramatic music plays]
What? You see that, did you?
I, I don't know what I saw.
Quite unusual.
- Almost there, Klausy.
- [dramatic music plays]
So Alfie destroyed the Storm Wheel here,
but where exactly?
Whoa. Is
Is that?
- [Po gasps]
- [mystical music plays]
[in unison] Black Steel of the Equinox.
Wow! There!
[Po] Looks like
the old city's still standing.
This is where we finish our mission.
Great. You first.
Show me how certain you are
those rocks will support our weight.
Rukhmini's right. We can't be certain.
Well then, no way forward.
Suppose this is where we turn around.
Akna, think you can land on
one of those rocks and see how it reacts?
On it!
[groans] That's, that's weird.
You've seen me fly before, right?
I-I swear I can do it.
Well, you've got wings and a beak.
That's a good start.
Oh no! Can I?
[Akna groans]
There's something strange
about this place.
The air, it's [sniffs]
Kind of musty.
[sniffs] But
[sniffs] Floral?
Oh, hold up. Pit check.
That might be me. [chuckles] Sorry.
Right! It's the air. [chuckles]
Not me. You heard her, right?
Alfie made it through here, so we can too.
It's a little wobbly,
but I think it's safe enough to stand on.
I don't know. Let's not rush into it.
Inner peace
Po, are you listening to me?
I am the rock.
No, wait. Po, stop!
- [soft music plays]
- [grunting softly]
Oh yeah! Embrace the magic.
Wait, wait, unembrace, unembrace! No! Ooh!
Okay, rocks, chill out.
Move slowly. They're unstable.
Luthera, I can't let you do this.
You'll get yourself killed.
Sometimes you have to
squeeze the juice, Mother.
[Po] Squeeze the juice!
- Don't ask. They'll start singing.
- [Po] Too late.
Squeeze the juice ♪
- [whimpers]
- [groans]
Uh, you can't go!
Just go home, Mother.
And stay out of the way.
Fine! If you won't listen to reason,
then it's up to me to keep you safe.
- [exclaims]
- Mother!
- [dramatic music plays]
- [grunting]
These shoes were not made for this.
- [rocks reverberating]
- [exclaiming]
Oh my!
Take my hand!
My hand, not the rest of me!
[grunts, groans]
Terrific, just terrific.
You owe me a mace.
- [insects chirp]
- [mysterious music plays]
More company, eh?
Oh, spooky beaver!
How long have you been in this nasty bog?
Long enough to bend it to my will.
Leave this place, now!
The bears were here, weren't they?
- [yells]
- [arm groans]
Tell me where they went.
Where did you learn to do that?
Who's asking the questions, eh? [yells]
- [dramatic music plays]
- [grunting]
- [exclaims]
- [gasps, grunts]
[dramatic music plays]
Who are you?
[panting] I'm Veruca DuMont,
the infamous Archmage of England.
That's the last introduction you'll hear
if you don't spit out some answers.
[chuckling] No.
No, you're more than all that.
You are a descendant
of the Ancient Masters.
[dramatic music plays]
Hold tight! We're coming for you.
[lively music plays]
This way.
My whole life, she never believed in me.
Keeping me from joining the knights,
forcing me into etiquette school instead.
This is all so typical.
To be fair, wouldn't really call
this typical. Know what I mean?
She's probably just worried about you.
That's what family does.
[grunts] Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Huh. That was different.
I just I've never been able
to depend on her for anything.
And she certainly doesn't depend on me.
Isn't that what family does?
Huh? [strains]
[mysterious music plays]
We're not gonna make it this way.
- How does it look on your end?
- [Lucinda cries]
[sniffling, crying]
[sighs] Well, this is worse
than the floating rocks.
I suppose it's funny,
the old ladies stuck together,
floating off into the abyss.
Who you calling old?
I'm sorry, it's just
Since I lost Alfie, I've felt so alone.
What about Blade? I mean, Luthera.
[sniffs] She and I never really
Look, I'm sure
you know how stubborn she is.
Stubborn? Sure. So what?
I didn't like your daughter much
when we first met.
Actually, I planned to rob her blind and
leave her to die inside a living statue.
But the truth is, the kid saved my life,
and then she took a chance on me.
So, stubborn? Sure. But good.
Real good!
[gasps] Uh, but for now,
maybe we just scream for help?
[Lucinda exclaims]
[tense music plays]
- Help!
- Hurry up, would you? Hurry!
Really wish I could fly right now.
[gasps] I have an idea!
[grunts] Come on!
Where next? There's no path forward.
- [majestic music plays]
- [gasps]
We won't make it.
- Hope you stayed limber, old lady.
- [yells]
[exclaiming, screaming]
[dramatic music plays]
Lean to the left.
- Sorry. You meant your left. [chuckles]
- [gasps]
[yells triumphantly]
- Get down!
- [yelps]
- [exclaims]
- Yeehaw!
That's what I'm talking
Ooh, bumpy! [laughs]
[grunts, gasps]
- Get down! [grunts]
- [groans]
[exclaims, laughs]
- Please stop having fun with this.
- It's my curse.
Use the rocks.
[screaming, grunting]
- [screams]
- Hold on!
- You are limber.
- [triumphant music plays]
- [dramatic music plays]
- [gasping]
We're not going fast enough.
We need to speed up.
- [music intensifies]
- [exclaims]
- [grunting]
- [screams]
- [high-pitched ringing]
- [grunting]
- Nice aim.
- You know it.
Now we're further than ever,
with no path to take us there.
- I told you to just go home!
- [gasps]
Why don't you ever listen to me?
[groans] You're so impossible. [scoffs]
- Uh
- [Akna groans]
The lady is trying to prove
how much she cares.
Well, she's certainly proven something.
I'm just saying.
You could try and cut her some slack.
Why? She's never cut me
any slack my whole life.
[music chimes]
[exclaims] Over here.
[scoffs] What now, Mother?
Just come here, Luthera.
There's something you should see.
Fine. What's so important?
Out there.
Look at the reflection on that stone.
[mystical music plays]
Could C-Could that really be it?
And is it, like upside-down?
How do we get there?
I know I haven't given you
much reason to, but
Trust me.
- [gasping]
- [dramatic music plays]
[Veruca] So, let me get this straight.
So, if we're the Ancient Masters'
great-great-great-great etc. grandkids,
then those weapons and that army,
they're my birthright.
[Duncan] No, no, no.
We're not related to
the Ancient Masters who made the weapons.
Hold out your cup.
There you go.
[sniffs, groans]
[sighs] Drink up. There's plenty.
Well, this tastes awful.
Bog water. Not for everyone.
Go on with your story then.
Are we descendants
of the Ancient Masters or not?
Our descendants weren't
the Ancient Masters who made the weapons.
No, we're descendants
of the masters they opposed.
[Duncan] They called our ancestors evil
for wanting to use their powers
to rule over the rest.
What did you tell the bears
when they came here?
Only what we needed them to know,
to find the weapons,
so that we may finally destroy them.
You're not destroying anything.
Now tell me,
where exactly did you send them?
You think I'd tell you now? Must be mad.
- Must be.
- [Duncan yells]
Mother, are you all right?
Really, Luthera, the shouting.
It isn't ladylike.
How did you
[atmospheric music plays]
By squeezing the juice.
[gasps] Whoa!
[mystical music plays]
I hate this. I hate this!
[exclaims] Whoa.
Is the blood rushing
to anyone else's head? [grunts]
Po, check this out!
Ancient molds for ancient weapons.
They were made right here.
This has to be
where Alfie brought the Storm Wheel.
Let's see how this thing works. [grunts]
All right, you've found your forge,
so can we please head home now?
Your other friends
have the weapons anyway.
You're still going on about that?
Why are you so intent on bringing me home?
- These weapons are
- What is so important about those weapons?
They're only capable
of destroying the world
and unleashing an army of souls
from everyone they've slain.
The wrapping from the Storm Wheel handle
Blade, you're right!
He melted the Storm Wheel.
You were right. He destroyed it here.
He didn't destroy the Storm Wheel.
[Blade] He turned it into his sword.
But why?
There's no hint of fire or molten metals,
and that glowing energy gives off no heat.
If Alfie knew Klaus and Veruca
were after the weapons too,
he would need his own magic to stop them,
to ensure
he got to the other weapons first.
[Rukhmini] W-What?
You're telling me you were carrying one
of those things around this whole time?
Wait, wait, wait.
But if his sword is a Tianshang Weapon,
and Veruca killed him with it
- Then Alfie's soul is inside.
- [Lucinda gasps]
Alfie's alive?
I-I don't know. But Drake has the sword.
Uh, I, uh, may be able to help with that.
Sir Drake is
expecting to meet us
at our home tomorrow morning,
to arrest you.
You were setting me up?
I just
I wanted you to be safe.
At what cost?
At any cost.
But if I could help you get
that sword from Sir Drake,
you said, with all those weapons,
your brother could be released?
I said an army could be released.
it's Alfie.
Whatever you wanna do, we're in.
