The Letter for the King season 1, episode 4 - Danger Knights


The Letter for the King season 1, episode 4, “Danger Knights” picks up the pace slightly but there’s a lack of clarity in the story.

This recap of Netflix Series The Letter for the King season 1, episode 4, “Danger Knights” contains significant spoilers.

The Letter for the King season 1, episode 4, “Danger Knights” begins with Prince Viridian sensing Tiuri’s powers from afar. Meanwhile, Lavinia asks where Tiuri’s powers came from? Tiuri has no idea.

This is the problem with this Netflix series, it doesn’t give us enough of Prince Viridian, so it essentially becomes a tale about a young Knight.

Prince Viridian is angry because the Shaman had a child and now the child is missing. He sends out hunting parties.

Lavinia and Tiuri bargain their way on a boat to cut their journey down to Unauwen. On the boat, they enjoy a bar and entertainment. Sluper the Sorcerer talks about Eviellan and the murdered Shaman and that the voices call out for revenge. Tiuri hears whispering again and his letter container opens up. The Red Riders come on board to find Tiuri. One of them grabs Tiuri but he manages to get away as Sluper saves him.

Sluper asks about the talisman and gets excited. Jaro continues to chase them down. Sluper helps Tiuri on to a lifeboat while Tiuri is bleeding. Tiuri realizes that he accidentally left behind the letter and Jaro cackles on the boat from afar, holding the letter. Lavinia swims onto the lifeboat.

Lavinia questions why Sluper saved Tiuri; Sluper says darkness is coming and when it does, Tiuri will be the hero. Tiuri apparently has Shaman blood. They head to a hideout and they tend to Tiuri’s wounds.

Tiuri has a temperature, and gratefully, it is not Covid-19. Lavinia goes out to get items to help Tiuri.

When Lavinia leaves, Sluper starts a ceremony on Tiuri while Lavinia is out — Tiuri starts panicking. Sluper talks about how power can be transferred from one person to another.

The Letter for the King season 1, episode 4, “Danger Knights” ends with the Novices trapping Lavinia — they ask where Tiuri is. They head to the hideout. Sluper is trying to burn Tiuri’s flesh to transfer the powers. Tiuri uses his powers and he is engulfed by flames. Tiuri controls the fire and attacks Sluper. With everyone shocked around him, Tiuri asks what the novices are doing in their hideout and then collapses.

Additional Notes

  • The novices steal horses so they can catch up to Tiuri.
  • Queen Alianor rides off after being told she needs to marry King Favian’s son. She tells the son she understands the plan and jumps into the river. She asks him to join her in the water
