We’re in the back half of the Shannara Chronicles season 2 with another set of back-to-back episodes coming up this week. We left off with Allanon (Manu Bennett) collapsing after being cut by the Warlock Lord’s sword. He was already looking bad since he had been captured by the Crimson and tortured. Something happened to one of the symbols on the back of his neck when he was escaping Graymark. Normally he can go into a Druid Sleep and heal, but that can take decades. It’s probably not a good idea to be without him, as Bandon (Marcus Vanko) is about to raise the Warlock Lord.
In the clip below, we see Mareth (Malese Jow) and Wil (Austin Butler) looking over what may be the Codex of Paranor for something to wake Allanon. The book is written in Druidic, something Mareth’s mother taught her to read. Wil is surprised, as her mother wanted Mareth to have nothing to do with Druids and Allanon — but it turns out that she used to read love letters that her mother had received from Allanon. The idea of Allanon writing love letters surprises Wil as well… but Mareth reminds him that the Druid may be a jerk, but he still has feelings.
The Shannara Chronicles airs back-to-back episodes Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
