  • Sir Mordred's triumphant return after laying siege to the Vikings is bittersweet for Our Heroes. While they are awestruck to see the king's champion and dear friend in person, they are saddened by the knowledge that this latest war with the Vikings could have been avoided.

    Trivia (3)

    • The previous episode includes a conversation between Valiant and Merlin in the latter’s underground laboratory. But in this episode, Merlin welcomes Valiant to his “humble abode” as if this is the first time the prince has been invited. Valiant himself seems unfamiliar with this fantastic subterranean lair.

    • Before the second commercial break, Valiant is seen putting a tankard to his lips. Immediately after the commercial break, he’s still holding it up in a toast as Lady Morgana entices him to drink it.

    • King Arthur’s mouth is abnormally large during his speech to Mordred at Satan’s Rock.

    Allusions (2)

    • Sir Mordred is King Arthur's son in the comics. He's introduced in Story 31, Page 500. Story 93 reveals that Sir Gawain is one of Mordred's half-brothers . . . therefore making him Arthur's nephew.

    • Lady Morgana is also a recurring villainess in the Prince Valiant comic strip, although there she goes by the name Morgan Le Fay. She is introduced in Story 8 as a sorceress whose powers can only be defeated by one of Merlin's spells.
