This article is a preview for Willow Season 1 Episode 8 and contains details of the release date, time, and where to watch online. It contains spoilers for previous episodes.
Willow is a 2022 sequel series to the 1988 Ron Howard dark fantasy film of the same name, which is something people might need reminding of since… well, it’s been a while. An unlikely choice for a revival, the series airs on Disney+ and is presumably an attempt at giving the streamer its very own rival to stuff like House of the Dragon on HBO and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Prime Video.
Here’s what happened in Willow Episode 7:
- Airk spends the entire episode bonding with his new friend Lili, who gradually reveals herself to be the Crone in disguise.
- Elora saves Kit from the amber liquid under the troll mine, and the group heads to the edge of the Shattered Sea.
- After a brief stop in a weird cabin and a battle with the Gales, the group ventures out across the Shattered Sea, which sends them half mad.
- Graydon discovers he has latent magical abilities that he can manifest through his flute.
- The Sea ends in a sheer cliff, and Kit persuades Elora to jump off together.
- They emerge in the Immemorial City, where they encounter Airk, having undergone something of a makeover.

We don’t have an official title or synopsis for the next episode, but we can make some logical assumptions:
- The rest of the gang will surely jump off the cliff after Kit and Elora unless they find another way. Regardless, we need a big reunion.
- Boorman will find an excuse to use the Cuirass and the Lux Arcana.
- I think we’ll be teeing up a second season rather than building to a legitimate conclusion, so don’t expect a definitive ending.
