Rue tells Duck that Tutu had a very small role in the story, and is hardly worth mentioning.

  • This is my favorite episode so far!!

    This is my favorite episode of this series so far. I love how everything is falling into place. Edel tells duck that she is a puppet with no feelings, then leads duck and Fakir to an entrance where Kraehe and Mytho are. Duck reveals herself to fakir, that she is really a duck, and the expression his face is priceless!!! Its sooo funny when he finds out that princess tutu, is the duck that he held against his body and cried in front of. I love the look on his face!!! And then the end of the episode when princess tutu must reveal her feelings toward the prince's heart shard (love piece) but can't because if she does, she will turn into a speck of light and dissapear. Love this episode :)moreless
