209C-Viking Legends: Black Widow

Kjartan and Gudrun were always meant to be together, but when the former gets waylaid in a foreign kingdom with a beautiful princess, the latter needs to make other plans. Of course, she accepts the proposal of their mutual best friend, sparking a love triangle that could prove deadly.

209B-Viking Legends: Time and Tide

Continuing these Viking legends, we'll see how a deep V can get you in deep trouble, and if at first you don't succeed in keeping your spouses alive, try, try again. And again. And again. And again.

209A-Viking Legends: Bloodlines

The beginning of an Icelandic saga with cursed swords, Viking love triangles, and why throwing stinky socks at a person whose only desire is to punch you in the face is a terrible idea.

208-Maui: Big Tuna

After his exploits, Maui decides to settle down. Unfortunately, married life is anything but bliss, but that's probably because his wife's ex-husband is a vicious eel monster.

207-Monkey King: Girls Before Swine

The Monkey King and friends stop off on a side quest to rescue a young woman kidnapped by a pig monster, but they might get more than they bargained for, and make a new friend along the way.
