Galavant, Season 1 Episode 7 Review: “Death After Brunch”

(Beware, spoilers below!)

We start off this episode of Galavant thirty winters earlier. Anthony Head debuts as Galavant’s father, who tells him he is destined to be a great hero and that heroes don’t have feelings because they cloud judgement. Back in the present day, Galavant realises that this is now his moment and that he’ll free them all. Isabella’s cousin Harry is about to save everyone but is incapable of thinking about anything else.

Madalena is planning to marry Kingsley and instead the kings decide to duel via champions. Kingsley chooses Gareth so Galavant chooses to fight for Richard in exchange for everyone to be set free. Just as the duel is about to begin cousin Harry shows up … and is a child. In order to stall things Richard declares a celebratory welcome feast.

Down in the dungeon the remaining royals, the Jester and Sid manage to set themselves free. Chef Vincenzo and Gwynne talk about how the poor are always the ones that die when royals feud. They plan to poison the royals so that for once they can get a happy ending. As Richard decides what to do he starts sneezing as does the rest of the table. Vincenzo reveals he just put in everything they’re allergic without killing them. As the royals become sick Sid shows up and throws Galavant as sword but instead of killing the kings he saves Isabella from a crab cake (she’s allergic to crab).

He finally gets his ‘moment in the sun’ and Richard decides to finally fight his own duel but Kingsley still doesn’t decide to fight.

As it all comes to a head the penultimate episode of Galavant throws us off course enough for it to be hilarious and enjoyable. Gwynne having a murderous streak was hilarious, as was Vincenzo being too nice to actually carry it out. Galavant’s still being a pig headed idiot, but I have a feeling that in the last twenty minutes everything will sort itself out nicely.
