The men have hated him for 1000 years because they blame him for their deaths. Will Goliath be able to resist their illusions? He’ll have to act fast; if he doesn’t, he’ll be a ghost instead.

Gargoyles: Shadows of the Past – Episode Review

When Avalon sends the skiff – and Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx – to the original site of Castle Wyvern in Scotland, Goliath is excited. He wants to show off his old home. But a storm is brewing, and not just the thunder-and-lightning kind. Strange things are happening; Goliath is hallucinating. Is it just old, painful memories surfacing, or are there other powers at work? This is the site of many deaths, after all, not the least of which are Hakon’s and the Captain of the Guard’s. Does the residue of this destruction and despair pollute the region? Maybe the locals have good reason to call the place haunted…

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 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.

Princes Katherine and her gang, along with 36 gargoyle eggs, think they’ve found safety at her uncle’s castle. But a usurper has other ideas. A Game of Thrones style of soap opera develops as soon as our protags walk in. Kenneth loves a noblewoman named Finella, but she loves Constantine, a rival to the king. Constantine loves power, which leads him to use her. Constantine kills the king and assumes the crown. He’s no fan of gargoyle eggs, either. His greatest scheme, though, is to marry Katherine against her will. It’s up to Magus, Tom, and Mary to save the day. But it comes at a steep price.

When a man from Goliath’s past turns up in full plate armor in New York City, asking the police about the clan and Goliath, Elisa, Goliath, and Bronx look for answers. It’s Tom, the boy who befriended the clan in Scotland in 994 AD. He says the gargoyle eggs from Castle Wyvern are in trouble on the isle of Avalon, threatened by the Archmage. But before Goliath can help, he needs to know what happened to Magus, Princess Katherine, Tom, Mary, and the 36 gargoyle eggs after the clan was turned to stone “until the castle rises above the clouds.”

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?

Gargoyles: The Cage – Episode Review Continued
