It's Royal Knights time.

Amidst the bland, knightly repetition, it's also time for a moon walk, a poorly conceived lesson about bullies, a beanstalk, some babies, and lots of retracing steps.

In this episode we dig into the structure of this arc (compared to the Destiny Stones arc), highlight Frontier's connections to the American Frontier, look at this arc as the franchise's first step into Royal Knights obsession, and tear into the handling of the Unchosen Children.
