Today’s episode: Our Heroes arrive in Tal, the duck port town. Once at Tal, they run into an old friend–Mudd the duck. Mudd takes the party to the Lighthouse Inn, a large lighthouse located in Tal’s bay that doubles as an Inn. Back at the Hawk King’s castle, Fiach-Ra learns of a way he can bypass the blue heron amulet protecting Steve, thanks to Rarlup, the Elder Mystic of Zuu. Fiach-Ra gives his second-in-command, U’nala, a chariot pulled by two flying Pyrix to aid in his search for The Boy. The Hawk King also makes U’nala take the bumbling gate guards, Remmit and Kaz, with him.
In our last episode: Istrio scolds Steve and tells the boy that his not doing as he was told led to the destruction of Uth, the Last Human Village (since renamed to The Village Formally Known as Uth, the Last Human Village). The blue heron mystic tells Steve he must find passage to Dragons Well and Istrio gives Zeroth a talking silver swordfish named Gladius.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (04.21.10): “An Odd Duck” – Our heroes meet the duck captain who will take them to Dragons Well: Alexander the Small.
This one has a few references/jokes I enjoyed. The first is the joke about the Lighthouse Inn inspiring sea shanties, ‘the very popular “The Light That Never Goes Out”’ (the name of a Smiths song) and ‘the not very popular “Show Me the Way”‘ (a Peter Frampton song).
The other joke is the “Everyone?” “EVERYONE!” exchange between U’nala and Fiach-Ra, which references a similar scene in the film The Professional.
