Spoiler warning: This article discusses details and plot points from Willow Chapter 3, “The Battle of the Slaughtered Lamb.”
Chapter 3 opens with a brief history of the Kymerian Cuirass, as told by Boorman, setting up a MacGuffin of sorts that he and Kit will pursue on their journey into the outer realm. Personal journeys begin for several characters as well, with Kit, Jade, and others forced to confront some difficult, unwelcome truths. Elora’s responsibility as the Chosen One — a calling she has resisted – comes more clearly into focus, and begins to give her the confidence and resolve that has so far eluded her. Away from the splendor of Tir Asleen and the warmth of the Nelwyn village, we are now traveling into some darker territory, both physically and emotionally. Here are five highlights.
