Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure

Recommended Posts

Okay, that was a cute, fun episode; even though I still think it's really weird that the show keeps introducing all these fantastical creatures, etc. And a black rocks mention; baby steps! (Does Adira have her own boat?? she's following them, right?)

I liked the island outfits too! It was nice that Pascal had a little adventure/plot.

I doubt it. Although, I feel that the completely smashed caravan will be right back to normal next episode, and I think that's harder to handwave away.

I was right: they're still on the island.

Hook Foot gets his own episode, complete with a romance and a song! Was not expecting the sad ending, but it was beautifully done.

"She's a mermaid?!" "Yeah, so, you're a woman with 70 feet of hair!"

LOL at Eugene and Rapunzel's competing romance advice.

Yeah, everything you said, but I really thought they'd be off the island already! I'm concerned about Hookfoot getting his hook back, though. Maybe that will be a future episode?

I'm really wondering about why they decided to do this massive change in the direction/setup of the show with Season 2. Were they always wanting to do this, but they wanted to ease into it with staying in Corona first? These animated shows are made so far in advance, I don't think it's related to audience reaction -- although, I'm sure they did focus groups/testing. It just seems like they decided to change the 'rules' of show all of a sudden.

What a very LOTR episode. And I mean that as a compliment.

It was good to see King Fred again, even though it was just a flashback/vision. His lost letter to Rapunzel was very sweet.

Boy, Raps and the gang went full-blown addicts in this one. Good thing Pascal was around to keep a cool head.

LOL that Eugene's "Blaze" was enough to make the crabs swoon.

So there won't be any new episodes in September so this is the last one for the time being. Very good run so far, or maybe I only feel that way because it's been mostly Varian-free--except for the vision in this episode, and even that filled me with distaste.

I loved the cameo, because it showed the consequences his face turn and actions in the S1 finale - almost killing one of her parents - have on Rapunzel. In S1, Rapunzel's worst nightmare was Gothel returning and trapping her in a tower again - now, her worst nightmare is Varian returning to destroy her family out of a misplaced desire for vengeance.

Also, I appreciate that the show, even in an illusion, still doesn't pull any punches on how twisted and psychotic he's become, with Jeremy Jordan selling it perfectly.

Really? Another episode on the island? I'm not really feelin' this season. I don't like it when they veer toward the supernatural, but I did like seeing the Corona characters again, because I miss them too. When are they going back??

Somehow Hookfoot got his hook back?

The lantern letters part of the episode was nice, though.

"Max and Eugene in Peril on the High Seas"

Stranded at sea, Max and Eugene are saved by a passing ship, only to discover that they've boarded a prison barge that's recently succumbed to mutiny by the inmates.

Finally, this show is back, and they're FINALLY off that stupid island!

So happy to have a Max and Eugene episode, because their interactions was why I loved Tangled as much as I did. Them versus a whole ship of their old enemies (even Max's horse rival!) was just pure fun. Also loved the Mickey Mouse old-time intro to the episode.

Hilarious that Max just carries that Corona law book wherever he goes.

I knew Eugene would be okay, but I still gasped when he seemingly got stabbed...them promptly laughed when Max punched out the horse.

Starting next week we'll get two new episodes back-to-back. I bet Disney is trying to motor through the rest of the season to make up for that ridiculously long hiatus.

Yeah, first off -- we're off the island! Yay!!

Running into past enemies was cool, but some of them I didn't even remember.

When was the last time there was a Eugene/Max plot main plot? I think there's been at least one before, but I can't remember. Anyway, nice little story about them working together with different styles. Also, it's just funny that Max not only can read, but knows the Corona law book front to back!

A couple of nitpicks, though. We get to see any of the actual crew of the prison barge; what happened to them?? And where were all those Corona prisoners being taken to?

I wonder if production problems are the reason for the delay.

I was guessing it was Mandy Moore becoming too famous from "This Is Us".

Hmm, maybe that's it. But doing the voiceovers shouldn't take up that much time, and it could be done in between filming her other show, I would think. Same with Zachary Levi and filming Shazam.

Wow, thes two episodes reminded me very strongly of the Aladdin TV series: Rapunzel getting psyched out by a curse just like Aladdin got psyched out from the "curse of clumsiness", and Rapunzel and Stalyan teaming up a la Jasmine and Sadira. Except Sadira didn't have a history with Aladdin like Stalyan and Eugene.

I wasn't expecting Stalyan to actually start to like Rapunzel and decide to let Eugene go, but I liked it. She'll be an interesting ally...

Okay, seriously something MUST be foreshadowing with Vigor repeatedly giving Eugene the stink eye.

Curses -
Eh, this one was pretty predictable. And every time I see the them cross somewhere perilous, I think "um, how are they going to get back home?"

Pinacosta -
Who did the voice of Virtuous Goodberry? Nevermind, I looked it up; it Lil' Rel. There were a few celebrity voices in this one actually, according to IMDB.

Similar to Max and Eugene's adventure, this was another one with opposites needing to work together; it was cool to see Stalyan again. I hope she shows up again sometime.

These standalone episodes are fine, but I still want to see progress on the Black Rocks mystery.

Well, we got some more answers on the Black Rocks mystery, or at least the Dark Kingdom and the moonstone. So Rapunzel can channel dark powers now, Cass lost a hand, and Adira might be lying to them. This was a dark one, all right.

I really hope Cassandra doesn't wind up turning evil over this. I get she's hurt that Rapunzel didn't listen to her, but she might be overly paranoid about Adira because of some latent guilt that she kind of started this by showing Rapunzel the rocks in the first place -- not to mention bringing Varian into their lives.

The funny Lance and Eugene duet was a bit out of place, but it was silly fun and I loved it.

So I didn't realize this was a hour-long episode.

I did appreciate more revelations about the Dark Kingdom, etc. But even with the "previously on" I don't remember anything about whatever sorcerer they were talking about. I don't know why they would introduce all that stuff about the tree, the writings, scrolls, and then ... destroy it all. (So I guess if/when they travel back to Corona it will be different way?)

And yeah, Eugene and Lance's song was good, but the context was weird. And I think that was the first duet with Levi and Inglehart.

Liked Cass' song. I hope that Rapunzel(?) can heal her hand later.

Zhan-Tiri. In "Queen for a Day", when Corona was hit by a blizzard (and Rapunzel was too busy to help Varian), Rapunzel ended the storm using a weather machine he had originally built to destroy Corona. Then in "Painter's Block", the witch posing as an art teacher who tried to brainwash Rapunzel and others into releasing Zhan-Tiri was a disciple of his who had been freed when the machine was put into motion.

Self-correction, Lord Demanitus (inventor and warrior of ancient Corona) built the machine to reverse the storm Zhan Tiri had magically unleashed on Corona.

The Brothers Hook: The return of Brad Garrett as Hook Hands! That was a fun filler episode after last week. Loved the seal wedding. Was surprised that a hook Foot left the group to tour with his brother, but I guess it's natural. The writers probably exhausted all story ideas for him, LOL.

Rapunzel: Day One: Nothing like an amnesia storyline to get Rapunzel and Cass to resolve their issues. It was fun to have Rapunzel revert back to her Tower Personality, and we had  some great callbacks to the movie. Yeah, I'm impressed that she constructed that elaborate trap in the woods too. For some that's spent her whole life in a tower, she sure can think on her feet!

Owl has an awesome bitchface.

I know I've complained about the slow progress on the overall Black Rocks arc, but I enjoyed these two mostly standalone episodes.

The Brothers Hook -
Was that really Brad Garrett? I wasn't sure if it was a really good impersonator or not. Anyway it was great to see Hook Hand again! I guess King Trevor has appeared before? I don't remember him; or his seal. He was a hoot, though!

Lucille, the "Seal of Approval" - dumb, but I laughed! I'm also surprised they sent off Hook Foot. Will Shorty be next?

Rapunzel Day One -
More callbacks to the movie - my heart! Cass and Rapunzel just happen to come across an abandoned wizard's(or whatever) supply cart with magical stuff - okay. But I still liked that Raps and Cass were able to clear the air and be friends again. And we have the caravan again! How many times are they going to re-build that thing?

Again, I know I'm not the target audience for this show, but I'd love another Raps & Eugene-centric episode.

And now they're stuck in a magical house with an evil French dude. Okay...

Mirror Mirror: Anytime Shorty acts normal and well-mannered you KNOW something's off. I admit they got me when Eugene turned out to be the clone all along, but it so figures that he'd be the first to get taken by the mirror because he's so vain. Also lol that Mirror Rapunzel fell for The Smoulder!

Was I the only one that immediately thought of the Taco Belll Godzilla commercials when Rapunzel was calling out "Heeeeere lizard lizard lizard!"? 😂😂😂😂

Youre Kidding Me: This was a fun one. Rapunzel and Eugene getting an early taste of parenthood. It makes sense that Raps would try to be more lenient after what Gothel put her through.

I didn't think these last episodes were bad, but I think I'm getting 'magic shenanigans' fatigue. Seeing Cass, Lance, and Shorty as kids was fun; also seeing Raps and Eugene's different parenting styles.

I really thought they'd be out of the creepy inn by the end of "You're Kidding Me". So will this be a 4-parter?

I wish I knew how many more episodes this season has.

Oh dammit, something happened to Cassandra in that room and now she's going to betray them in the Dark Kingdom. Ughh was so hoping that wouldn't happen.

Rapunzel hitting Dream Gothel with the frying pan was awesome.n

Demantius turning out the be Vigor was a great twist -- and Timothy Dalton was a great choice for the voice!

Next week is the season finale and hopefully an end to the Black Rocks storyline! But then again we have one more season after this, so who knows if they'll drag it out longer.

Cassandra, NO! But my question is, was that even Cassandra that came out of that door??

I was prepared to be thoroughly annoyed at yet another Vigor episode, but the twist that he was Demantius was great. And I did get the Rapunzel/Eugene centered episode that I wanted.

I'm still not really into the whole magical backstory/mythology. That being said, I'm glad we got the whole scroll and some answers, and they're almost to the Dark Kingdom, so payoff is near.

Just me, or was Mother Goethel one of Demantius' students(?) that betrayed him. One of the silhouettes looked like her to me.

I hope not! But it's a real possibility, though. And even if we're done with the Black Rocks, etc. this season, next season I assume there are still repercussions. Things are still kind of openended with Varian and his father. I feel like that story didn't get a solid resolution.

I had already read a spoiler that Vigor was possessed by Demanitus a few weeks ago, but I forget where. Maybe Wikipedia. It was in the description of him as a character, not an episode summary.

HOLY SHIT A CLIFFHANGER.

Cassandra was the traitor, yup. But now we have to wait til next season to find out what's going on with her and what her "destiny" is supposed to be.

Eugene is the Dark Prince! Fans on Tumblr have been calling this for a while, and the hints were there.

I'm glad that they didn't make King Edmund evil though, just a misguided person who thought he was doing the right thing. LOL at The Glower, he is so Eugene's dad.

Wow, even Lance got to kick some butt.

Next season is the final one. It's going to be another long-ass wait...

The one flaw in the logic ointment is that apparently the maid who took Eugene out of the Dark Kingdom just dumped him at an orphanage instead of raising him. Unless she died offscreen.

WHAT - NO!

See, I KNEW that wasn't Cassandra that came back! Or maybe it's her, but she's possessed.

And they're just making Eugene a prince? It's not a horrible twist, or anything; but it's kinda out of nowhere. Way to drop that at the very end of the season.

And how was Cassandra (or "Cassandra") able to grab the Moon Stone? I thought it couldn't be touched -- because it harmed the King when he tried, right?

Anyway I kinda hate that yet again they're ending the season with a friend that has turned against Rapunzel. (Even though I'm guessing it's not really Cass.) I just hoping the next season sorts this out relatively quickly, because I don't want a whole season of Raps vs. Cass.

Interesting parallel: the Sun Drop healed Rapunzel's mother, while the Moon Stone killed Eugene's mother.

Where is this info from? Because it's the first I'm hearing of it. I admit to not being interested in the mythology they've set up, but I really don't recall anything that hinted that Eugene is the Prince of the Dark Kingdom.

It was a theory that was all over Tumblr.  Another theory was that Varian would be the "Moon Child" or whatever.  Glad that wasn't the case.

A few of my disappointments with Season 2:

  • No Varian. I was sure they'd come back around to him,  since he was so important in the previous season; plus his father is connected to the Dark Kingdom.
  • I was interested in the Black Rocks mystery, but I did not sign up for 'magical shenanigans road trip'. (Although some of that was fun.) I missed Corona and its characters.
  • Adira seemed an interesting addition at first, but she mainly just popped up occasionally for deus ex machinas and exposition. And we still don't know much about her. No explanation about the weird choice to have half her face red.
  • If they were going to reveal that Eugene is a prince at the very end, they should have sprinkled a few clues throughout the season. (And I have a feeling they're not going to get to deep into this new info in the season.)
