Po and Wandering Blade attempt to reach The Emperor before Klaus and Veruca but he has problems of his own! In Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight season 1 episode 10 titled, “The Knight’s Fall Part 1”, has everyone meeting at the palace and a secret is revealed!
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight Season 1 Episode 10 recap – The truth about Wandering Blade
Po and Wandering Blade climb a tall and snowy mountain attempting to reach the palace before the weasel siblings. Klaus and Veruca aren’t far from the top but decide to wait in the hopes Po and Wandering Blade will be taken care of by The Emperor.
This would make their mission to get the fire whip easier. When the two warriors finally arrive the monkey thief is nowhere to be seen.
Though she had beaten the Imperial Guards easily, she didn’t expect the trap door at the entrance. Now the fire whip belongs to The Emperor.
Po explains in excruciating detail to The Emperor what has happened the entire season, but he isn’t believing any of it. To make matters worse Colin arrives to arrest Wandering Blade.
It turns he’s an actual knight of England whereas Wandering Balde never was. She stole her brother’s armor and sword and fled the country.
Po is devastated by this reveal. Colin takes Wandering Blade as Po is sent to the dungeons where his father and the thief monkey are also residing.
Together they trick the guard, who happens to be a kimono dragon of The Forbidden Company and they escape. As they escape, they find the hedgehog from episode 3 but she rather stay behind and rest in her cell.
As they reconvene inside the palace, the monkey thief takes back the fire whip and flees. Wandering Blade tries to convince Colin to let her go and arrest Klaus and Veruca instead, as he now realizes they were the same weasels he once encountered, but he refuses to abandon his mission.
Wandering Blade battles and defeats him and makes a mad dash back towards the palace.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight Season 1 Episode 10 recap – The Battle at the palace
Klaus and Veruca arrive at the palace, ready to take control with the gauntlet however both Po and his father are ready to fight back. Together they battle the siblings, while The Emperor tries to escape unharmed.
But the fight comes to a deadly halt when Po and Veruca use their fists in which she will be using the gauntlet. As Wandering Blade reaches the palace doors, the blast from the gauntlet is unleashed leaving the episode on another but nonetheless dramatic cliffhanger.
Will Po survive a full-on attack from the gauntlet? How will season 1 conclude next episode?
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight Season 1 Episode 10 review
I will say the reveal that Wandering Blade wasn’t actually a knight was both shocking and somehow expected. Episodes prior we learned that as a child she wanted to be a knight, but her parents wouldn’t allow it.
After her brother’s death she probably became more determined to be one but had to learn from afar. She learned very well, as she has proven herself repeatedly to be an excellent fighter even if Po is often better than her.
Surely this isn’t the end for Po as he is the main character, but I am unsure how this season will wrap up. The fire whip is gone, again, not to mention Po is still viewed as a menace thanks to an ignorant Emperor and how will Klaus and Veruca finally be captured?
While they are villains, they have a pretty valid reason for being so. They need to be held accountable but shouldn’t the Queen as well for all of the other mages who are, I assume, dead?
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens in the last episode!
