At the same time, Macbeth, the King of Scotland and Father of the King Thereafter, is awaiting a magical prize to drop from a gate in time and space. Turns out that the prize is Arthur and Griff. Bummer. But the search is on for Excalibur, which may in fact be in the Brooklyn Gardens. Which king is worthy to wield the legendary blade?

Gargoyles: Sanctuary – Episode Review Continued

Thailog and Demona have teamed up to take Macbeth’s wealth. The plan involves a marriage and a dungeon, and I’m not speaking figuratively. Macbeth hasn’t lived 1000 years just to end in a cell in his basement, though. His time to end it all has come! It’s up to the gargoyles and Elisa to stop Thailog and Demona’s plan, and save Macbeth from himself.

Gargoyles: Sanctuary – Episode Review

The Weird Sisters free Demona and Macbeth from their spell, and helpfully wiped their memories when they left Avalon. We haven’t heard anything from the pair since they sailed Into the Mists. Now they’re back. And in love. That’s right, this is the episode where you will see Macbeth and Demona, sworn enemies, swear their love for one another, embrace, kiss, and even…wait for it…marry. But all is not as it seems. The monster of Notre Dame Cathedral is in town, and he and Demona are no strangers. It’s up to Elisa to figure out what is going on, since Goliath is fixated on Demona’s presence. Angela is about to discover a secret about her mother. And Macbeth will discover a secret about himself.

Better Call Saul: Gargoyles Edition

GregXB commented on the Golem post that Halcyon Renard is very similar to Charles “Chuck” McGill from Better Call Saul. Well, that kicked off a Twitter convo comparing Gargoyles characters to BCS characters.

Just for fun, I bring you our ideas for Better Call Gargoyles.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 3 – Episode Review Continued

The villains have assembled their forces. So have the protagonists. King Arthur is on the gargoyles’ side, but he lacks Excalibur, his knights, and Merlin. Will his warrior skills hold true after 1000+ years of enchanted sleep? He’ll be facing Demona and Macbeth, warriors who have been honing their skills for those 1000+ years. The Weird Sisters are also going to battle; they’ll face Magus, who lost the Grimorum and his magic decades ago. To top things off, the Archmage will be using all the power of the Grimorum Arcanorum, Phoenix Gate, and Eye of Odin to fight Goliath. It’s going to take real skill on the antagonists’ part to lose this game.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 3 – Episode Review

Three hours remain before the sun rises and the day of vengeance begins for the Archmage. Goliath, Angela, and Gabriel set off to face the Archmage, while Elisa and Magus venture into the Hollow Hill in search of the Sleeping King. The protagonists are up against some stiff competition from the villains. But will a new player in the game turn the tide? Hint: his best friend was Merlin. This is no time for our villains to get complacent, even if it seems they’ve won the day.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 2 – Episode Review Continued

The Sisters have also collected Demona and Macbeth, who are fully under fey control. The assault on Clan Avalon begins. Elisa and Goliath are there to help, but what can they do against an archmage, two immortal warriors, and three fey? It looks like the villains have this one in the bag.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 2 – Episode Review

Who says you can’t go back in time and save someone’s life? You can if it’s meant to be in the time stream. You can even save your own life! The Archmage pitched off a cliff in 984 AD, but thanks to magic and covering himself adequately regarding the time stream’s laws, he’s back and more powerful than ever in 1995. This episode is a mind bender! It’s also the setup for how and why the Archmage is terrorizing Avalon’s residents: Katherine, Magus, and 36 gargoyles. The mage wants ultimate power and revenge, and he won’t stop until he gets them.

Gargoyles: The Price – Episode Review Continued

While Macbeth distracts the clan from what they think is an ensorcelled statue of Hudson, the real Hudson is verbally sparring with Xanatos from behind electrified bars. Xanatos is using the magical Cauldron of Life to cook up a brew, which includes a piece of stone skin from a gargoyle, that will grant immortality. Hudson argues that immortality has a high price, one that Macbeth and Demona are paying. Xanatos knows that death and old age have a price as well, and it’s too expensive. In the end, his desire for immortality will cause an unlikely person to pay a high price.

Gargoyles: The Price – Episode Review

Macbeth is back, and he’s on the hunt for trophies. Specifically, gargoyles. When his magic keeps Hudson from awakening from his stone sleep at sunset, the clan is left to find a solution. But it’s all a distraction for the real action: Xanatos has kidnapped Hudson. David wants Hudson’s skin. Why? It’s an ingredient in a magic brew that, according to the legend, will make whoever bathes in it “live as long as the mountain’s stones.” After all, what good are all the riches in the world – which Xanatos essentially has – if you die?
