Spike has released a second clip from the next episode of The Shannara Chronicles. The episode features Allanon (Manu Bennett), Wil (Austin Butler), and newcomer Mareth (Malese Jow) searching for the Sword of Shannara, the only weapon that can defeat the Warlock Lord.
Last week, Wil busted Allanon out of Graymark — but not to save him. Wil is still angry at the Druid for allowing Amberle to be sacrificed to save the Ellcrys. Bandon (Marcus Vanko) has captured Wil’s uncle and is demanding that Wil bring Allanon to him so he can resurrect the Warlock Lord.
The real interesting thing here is that in the clip, Wil uses the Elfstones of Shannara. The stones give Wil his ability to tap into magic. Wil got into Graymark as a prisoner, and his Elfstones were taken from him and given to General Riga (Desmond Chiam). When they break out, they don’t stop to get them. How does Wil get them back?
Hopefully this is something the show will address in the episode. Maybe Wil has learned to summon them or something. As he was losing them constantly in the first season, it would be understandable for him to try and come up with a way to keep that from happening again.
The Shannara Chronicles air Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
