Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight season 3, episode 7 recap – Klaus’ redemption
It seems Klaus created a nice setup since he was abandoned by his sister on the island. He’s been growing his garden and trying to convince Kyle and his followers to do the same.
He’s tired of them robbing from ships and absolutely blames the Tianshang weapons for his troubles. Therefore, he wants Mr. Ping and Forouzan off the island with the weapons as soon as possible.
He attempts to distract Kyle and his followers, however in the process Forouzan and Mr. Ping argue, accidentally revealing the weapons. Kyle seeks to reclaim the helmet more than anything, which results in an all-out fight with both sides.
He does obtain the helmet temporarily before Forouzan takes it for herself. But in a surprise turn of events, Forouzan does not take the helmet to use for her own.
She is now fully aware of the Tianshang weapons power, yet she agrees to help Mr. Ping and together they continue their journey England as originally planned. They leave the island where Klaus attempts to teach Kyle and the followers again about how to survive on their own.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight season 3, episode 7 recap – Aid from a jester
As Po and the group wander London trying to find the symbol to no avail, Wandering Blade notices a grasshopper jester performing before a crowd. Unfortunately, his one-man show isn’t going well, even though Wandering Blade found his performances hilarious in the past.
She believes that he will know where the symbol is as he’s performed everywhere in the city. When the jester reveals that his lost his troupe, due to their desires to travel the world, Po begins to fear for his own relevance with the group.
He worries that once their mission is over and the Tianshang weapons have been destroyed, the group will disperse and his role as the Dragon Knight will no longer hold any meaning. These thoughts torment our hero a majority of the episode until Wandering Blade calms his anxiety.
At first the jester tricks the group, forcing them to perform in his show. Although he’s able to earn a lot of money, he agrees to actually help them.
As the group scuffles with two toads the jester owes money too, the jester reveals the secret passage needed to find the entrance.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight season 3, episode 7 recap – The cliffhanger
The group takes the path through the catacombs underneath the city. The eerie hallways of skulls and bones seems endless, until the jester reveals the symbol painted on one skull.
Wandering Blade is able to open the wall to a well. The group dives down only to come up in a strange, silent world, filled with fragments and wind.
Worried something went wrong the group turns around thinking the jester is with them. Instead Wandering Blade’s mother emerges from the shadows as the episode comes to a close.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight season 3, episode 7 review
I’m unsure about the cliffhanger as the episode wants to imply that somehow Wandering Blade’s mother is involved in the bigger story. But I wouldn’t be surprised if instead, she arrived because she was worried about her daughter.
After all Wandering Blade never explained to her mother why they needed Alfie’s journal. There was honestly no time to explain.
Since the two didn’t have closure the episode prior, this may be a way to fit that into the story. I am relieved that Po’s anxieties didn’t forfeit the mission.
In other television shows Po would have found the symbol but lied about its whereabouts. Or he would have caused something to go wrong, which would have cost the group time and effort.
Then there would have been a fallout and distrust before everything returns to normal again. The show avoided all of that by having Wandering Blade listen to Po’s concerns and put them to rest.
I honestly loved that Klaus has a sort of redemption arc going on. He’s not necessarily a good guy but he wants no further involvement in the Tianshang weapons or his sister.
He seems perfectly content living on his own on the island. Perhaps he and Kyle could patch things up since it was Veruca who tried to kill him.
I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of Klaus.
