Episode Summary

Duck kind of becomes friends with Rue. Rue and Mytho are a couple, but Mytho feels nothing for the other. When a girl (she's an anteater by the way) asks him out, he agrees, forsaking Rue. He doesn't understand why it's wrong. The anteater is bitter and jealous of Rue, because she dances better than her. She and Mytho have a dance-off with Rue. Rue chooses Duck as her partner, and they win. Duck finds out that the anteater is being influenced by a shard of prince Mytho's heart. She transforms into Tutu and convinces the heart shard to return to Mytho. Mytho regains a feeling, which worries Fakir.moreless
