The Dragon Prince (2018) s02e03 Episode Script

Smoke and Mirrors

Previously on The Dragon Prince A letter? You'll understand in time.
I want you to break the seal when Well, you'll know when.
What is this place? Wait.
Callum, I need to tell you something.
I know what happened.
He's gone.
Oh, no.
Callum, I'm sorry.
I tried to tell you the king was dead.
My stepdad.
He was more than just the king to me.
Your stepdad.
I know.
I really tried, but I could never find the right way.
And whenever I tried, I messed it up, and the next time was harder, until Rayla, just stop.
I can't talk about this right now.
All I can think about is how I'm going to tell Ezran our father is gone.
I'm sorry, Callum.
I'm so, so sorry.
So, have fun on your little date? What happened? What did he do to you? Nothing happened.
Callum would never hurt me.
Then how come you're all weep-ridden? That is not an emotion, Soren.
My point is, are you okay? Yeah.
I'm gonna be fine.
Because you're my sister, as you know.
I'm always here for you to punch someone, or whatever you need.
- I know.
- Good.
We still have to bring the princes back with us.
Whatever it takes, whatever happens.
I need to know that all this won't get in the way of doing what we came here to do.
It won't.
I can do it.
Callum? Morning, Ez.
I had another weird dream.
I was running from that giant hippo.
The one made of taffy, remember? Uh, I think so? Only this time, there was someone riding on his back.
It was the baker.
The one who didn't like me.
He'd like you if you stopped stealing his jelly tarts.
He said I was wanted for crimes against dessert.
And to make the hippo chase me, the baker told him I was jelly-filled.
- Ez - I was a pastry fugitive, Callum.
It was terrible.
And the worst part was he was right.
I was delicious.
Let's go for a walk.
So, Ezran, I wanted to talk to you about life, and growing up and how sometimes there are changes you don't expect.
Is this the talk about sandwiches? No.
No, no, no.
No, not that.
No, definitely not that.
Uh Mmm.
Ezran, for a long time, I treated you like a little kid.
And that wasn't fair.
You've grown up so much, and I'm really proud of you.
But when you grow up, sometimes you have to face things you're not ready for.
I know.
You know? I know everyone's counting on me to teach Zym how to fly.
But that's just the start.
Someone's gonna have to teach him all the things he's supposed to do.
Everything he's supposed to be.
And he's meant to learn it all from a big, strong King of the Dragons.
But he doesn't have that.
All he's got is me.
Hey, don't be so hard on yourself, Ez.
I know it'll be tough, but no matter what, you've got us.
Me and Rayla, probably Bait.
We're all here for you.
Thanks, Callum.
That means a lot.
But I really wish Dad was here.
I keep wondering what he would do.
What he would say to Zym.
When I was little and I wasn't listening to him, Dad would say, "Ezran, you're a handful.
" So, I tried to do that with Zym.
"Azymondias, you're a handful.
" But he doesn't understand.
He doesn't even have hands.
I guess I just miss Dad.
He'd know what to do, you know? Callum, what's wrong? Nothing, Ez.
I just really miss him, too.
I couldn't do it.
I couldn't tell him.
Callum And I understand why you couldn't tell me.
When you care about someone, it's hard to hurt them.
Even when what you're telling them is the truth.
I still should've told you.
You had the right to know.
I think maybe I did know.
Deep down, I knew.
I just hoped, if I didn't think about it, maybe somehow, it wouldn't be true.
But he's gone.
He's really gone.
The fire.
No, no, no! Who are you? When Soren said that Dad wanted us home, - you knew he was lying.
- Yeah.
Unless, maybe Soren was also trying to protect our feelings.
Oh, right.
He definitely seems like a thoughtful, sensitive, feelings-y, protect-y kind of guy.
Yeah, you're right, that's not really his style.
We don't have a choice anymore.
We have to leave.
And we have to do it now.
Get as far away from them as we can before they even realize we're gone.
Whoa, wait a minute.
They're still my friends.
But they lied to you.
Soren lied to me.
Claudia told me the truth.
- We can't just leave.
- Leave? Yeah.
I'm sorry, but we've decided.
We're leaving today.
This mission, taking the Dragon Prince back to Xadia, it's the most important thing we'll ever do.
- We can't go home with you.
- Oh.
Are you sure? I mean, your dad is gonna be really disappointed.
- Soren, what is wrong with you? - I'm just trying to Don't! Stop it, Soren.
Ugh, fine.
Do what you want.
Stupid moths.
I'm sorry about him.
But before you go, Callum, I have something I need to give you.
In private.
Uh, all right.
So, closed door? Open door? What's What do you Uh, closed is fine.
I have something for you.
Something you dropped.
That's my letter.
From him.
You didn't open it? Why would I do that? It's for you.
Though, I mean, for the record, I could have opened it and pretty easily re-sealed it with magic.
Wait, did you? Did I? We may never know.
But, no.
So, are you going to open it? No.
I don't think I'm ready yet.
But thank you, Claudia.
You're welcome.
So, I guess this is goodbye.
Zym, come on.
You loved it in there as an egg.
Rayla, look.
He can't fly yet, but he should be safe in Hey, how'd you Bait, you're not helping.
Let me guess.
Once I was gone, she tried to manipulate you and convince you to go back home again.
No, she didn't.
Actually, Claudia really understands how important it is to get Zym back to Xadia.
That's surprising.
- Mmm-hmm.
- But good.
In fact, she understands it so well that she and Soren want to come with us.
What? That is the worst possible plan.
How? How is it bad? They're offering to help.
Or it's a trap.
Callum, I know you trust them.
But if we let them come with us, by the time we know the truth, it'll be too late.
Do you understand? We'll lose everything.
So, then what are we supposed to do? How can we figure out if it's help or a trap? Can I help you? I'm sorry.
Were you meditating or something? I was.
So, you're done.
We're leaving.
And the other humans, they're coming with us.
And you're unhappy with that.
Callum trusts them, but I know they're hiding something.
You see, to every truth, there is a dark, shadowed side.
- Consider the half moon - You already did this.
Have I? Hmm.
Well, that's really all I've got.
Unless you're in need of a spooky monster or fake food.
Hmm? Actually, there is something you can do for me.
Oh, yeah.
Where are Callum and Ezran? Oh, they'll be here soon.
Ezran's still packing up his dragon.
It has been a pleasure to have you all here.
I truly have enjoyed you all sneaking past my defenses and desecrating this sacred place these past few days.
It will be lonely.
Quiet but lonely without you.
I'll miss you so much.
Ellis, you will always be welcome here.
And you, too, little one.
You don't need the illusion any longer, but I hope it serves as a reminder that someone is always looking out for you.
Okay, everyone's here now.
We can all hit the road.
All right.
Time to go to the magical land and do whatever.
So, you're ready to do this the Soren way, right? Yes, there's no other way.
Then, when it's time to strike, I'll give the signal.
What's the signal? The signal is me attacking the elf.
It's going to be a long journey.
Let me just go around this bush-corner and see if I can find some berries or something.
- Oh, no.
It's a trap.
- Yup.
But why? I thought we were friends.
Sorry, but no.
I'm just a nice guy and people get the wrong idea sometimes.
You don't speak sarcasm so good, do you? No, I do not.
Wait, Ava! Come back.
I'm sorry, little guy.
You have to come with me.
You can't see me.
On your side it's just an ordinary mirror.
What? You're running away? Hey! Do either of the tiny princes want to fight? This elf is a coward.
I'm sorry.
I know this feels like a betrayal, but I can't let you go.
I have to do what's right.
I have to take you back home.
Please don't give me the silent treatment, Callum.
Say something! Say you hate me.
Say anything.
Soren, something's wrong! This is a trick! A trick? Us? No.
- Sarcasm! - Right.
What did you do, elf? I can't wait for the look on your big, stupid face when you see this.
Ellis, show them.
Here's your moment, Ava.
Moonstone collar trick.
- They're illusions.
- What? You're saying they're not real? That's what "illusions" means, Soren.
Not even close! Where are the real princes? Claudia, they're getting away.
No, they're not.
Claudia, please! Don't do this.
Stop! Let them go.
What are you doing? Protecting them from you! Big mistake, chain man.
Goodbye! I'll miss you guys.
Don't you forget about me.
Don't, don't, don't, don't.
We got 'em! I was right.
Yeah, you were right.
I wish I wasn't.
I'm sorry.
You know you're going to pay for this, traitor.
Traitor? General Amaya sent me to protect the princes of Katolis, and you just tried to kidnap them.
Everyone who votes "Corvus is a traitor" raise their hand.
Two against one, traitor.
What are we gonna do? We betrayed our friends, and it was all for nothing.
It wasn't for nothing.
The dragon! We still have the dragon.
Come on out, you little I hate the Moon.
Ugh! It's okay, Zym.
It's safe to come out now.
We're up in the sky.
Wanna see how flying feels? Come on, spread your wings.
