Shannara Chronicles Season 2: Bandon Reveals His True Desires

Manu Bennett fans are getting their fill for this month as the actor has been pulling double duty on our TV screens playing both Allanon on The Shannara Chronicles and Slade Wilson on Arrow. And last week we learned that because Bandon (Marcus Vank0) used Allanon’s blood as part of the resurrection ritual, the Warlock Lord ended up being played by Bennett as well. And while Deathstroke has gone off on the CW series, we get back-to-back episodes of the Spike series this week — including the season finale.

Shannara Chronicles

In the scene below, the Warlock Lord does a vision quest thing as he looks to see what Eretria (Ivana Baquero) is up to. She is key to his plans, it seems, even if she’s running around with the Shannara (Austin Butler). After doing something really kind of gross… I mean, gaaaaah… the Warlock Lord demands Bandon tell him what he truly desires. He admits that he wants power so that no one can ever hurt him again. The Warlock Lord tells Bandon to follow him and he will show him that power. You get the feeling that this isn’t going to go well.

The Shannara Chronicles has back-to-back episodes including the season finale airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
