The Animal allies are under attack, but even if they survive what else will they find?

Summary[edit | edit source]

This episode begins during the combat started in Episode 255: Meanwhile... details of combat can be found below. 

After combat ends the Plague Jackal and the Biium move away from the battlefield as Mother Mantis takes extra time to rip apart the body of the last monster. Bravest Rabbit quickly gets into a defense position, in case this is going to lead to another fight. Mother Mantis yells "That's my rabbit." Refering to Eldest Rabbit, who has spent all of the fight in the Bravest Rabbit's backpack. 

When Eldest Rabbit sees the carnage he says, "Well done."  

At this point he introduces the different animals to each other, and we learn their names. Longshanks being an outsider and having never meet Eldest Rabbit, offers to help the group fight Spud. 

Eldest Rabbit explains that he gathered this group together because he has friends that are moving to strike against the Lord of the Feywild. Bravest Rabbit is a bit dismayed that they are working with non-rabbits but Eldest Rabbits says they need the skills of these other animals. With that Eldest Rabbit says they need to head out because they are still looking for one more. 

Eldest Rabbit shares that he believes that the monsters the group just faces are created when the big crystal plazas appear. In the distance the group can see a huge platform with huge stone statues of Eladrin on it.
