Spoiler warning: This article discusses details and plot points from Willow Chapter 2, “The High Aldwin.”
So, you’ve found out you’re the chosen one. Now what?
Chapter 1’s shocker of an ending, in which Dove learns that she’s actually Elora Danan, essentially turned Willow on its head: the big mystery of the series is seemingly solved, but our heroes’ world is changed. Chapter 2, “The High Aldwin,” takes its time allowing everyone, including us, to catch our breath and wrestle with this new reality. Elora begins her training, only half believing she can actually perform magic, while Kit, Jade, and co. all struggle to accept, to varying degrees, that Dove, the helpless kitchen-maid, is the world’s future savior. Not taking itself too seriously until it has to, “The High Aldwin” brings character development and laughs as the journey gets more complicated. Here are five highlights.
