The MMPR learn that Grace somehow has the insane Lord Drakkon locked up. Also not for long. There is a loss. This was okay. Tommy is no longer made to feel unwelcome. The MMPR react with alarm to meeting Lord Drakkon and fear the unbridled power he has so recklessly wielded. There are secrets, resentment and Jason is poisoned by doubt about Grace.
Lord Drakkon gatecrashes the narrative with an agenda all his own. The storyline is grittier and sadder. Lord Drakkon is painfully overwrought and self-fabulating and full of grim foreboding. Jason is all vague moralising. Is Lord Drakkon jealous of the possibilities Tommy still has ahead of him? Tommy stoically accepts weirdness. Tommy is lovelorn. Lord Drakkon is vexed and brutal. He is also super-hostile moral rot.
I don’t care about Grace and her emotional fallout. Lord Drakkon is all negative tropes. Grace excuses and trivialises her lies. Everyone who encounters Lord Drakkon hates him and their hatred is totally justifiable. Lord Drakkon looks evil smelling. Rita plans ravages and Lord Drakkon has a refusal to be shamed. Trouble is going on. Kimberley harangues people. Tumultuous stuff happens. Lord Drakkon acts without regard to the consequences and there are gruesome occurrences.
This is an enjoyable ridiculous mythical extravaganza, but it is not raw or revelatory. Tommy has his integrity intact. The sinister sociopath Lord Drakkon is a dissolute sour note. Grace is a constant source of mistrust and a major irritant. Jason expresses grievances. Lord Drakkon is fanatically determined and quite confrontational and contemptuous. He’s greeted with distain and rumblings of discontent. Jason is morally serious. Lord Drakkon is all self-adoring delight and driven by ambition and hateful rhetoric and limitless egotism.
