Episode Summary

Episode 3
As Alia becomes totally posessed she also has to deal with rebel Fremen. Ghanima, who survived the attack on her planned by House Corrino, is engaged to Farad'n Corrino and a marriage is planned for the near future. Then, unexpectedly, Leto II returns out of the desert. Everyone believed he was dead, but it was just a staged death. While in the desert his body has absorbed a few sandtrout, which means that, in time, he could turn into a sandworm and live for hundreds of years. Alia resists posession by the baron while Irulan declines Jessica's offer to return with her to Caladan, saying that she will be needed by the children.moreless
