- 1. The street's closed all day?
- 2. Sorry. Orders of Ahlberg
and the Safety Patrol,
- 3. We have to fill in
these Vittra tunnels right away.
- 4. It's the only way
to secure our city's borders.
- 5. What about the Vittra?
- 6. - Get 'em boys! Go for the ankles!
- 7. We're managing.
- 8. Look, if you want
to avoid the construction
- 9. and get to the docks, it's simple.
- 10. Just take Kittelsen Road,
then follow the wall all the way around…
- 11. to here.
- 12. That's halfway around the city.
- 13. That sounds like a you problem.
Now, if you'll excuse me.
- 14. Hold 'em off, Donnie, I'm coming!
- 15. Hmm.
- 16. Ahlberg.
- 17. He acts like he wants to protect the city,
- 18. but all he's doing
is causing more problems.
- 19. I bet he has some secrets,
- 20. and I know just where to find them.
- 21. Come on, Twig, let's go!
- 22. Well, well, well!
- 23. You come once again to the Rat King,
- 24. seeking secrets.
- 25. Do you know anything about Erik Ahlberg,
the new head of the Safety Patrol?
- 26. Mm… Perhaps. But, I require, in exchange…
- 27. a Fried Cod Sandwich
from the Salty Maiden!
- 28. That's all?
- 29. You've clearly never tried their cod.
- 30. Oh! And make sure it's a good one.
- 31. One that's had time to age properly.
- 32. You can usually find them
in the dumpster out back.
- 33. That shouldn't be a problem.
- 34. With extra sauce if possible!
- 35. Ooh… sauce.
- 36. - Excuse me.
- 37. - May I take a look in your dumpster?
- 38. Wood Man?
- 39. Wood Man! What are you doing here?
- 40. I didn't know you were in town.
- 41. That's because I didn't tell you.
- 42. Last time I was gambling you proved
to be quite distracting.
- 43. You lost me on purpose to a giant
so I'd help you rob him.
- 44. We can argue specifics later.
I need to focus.
- 45. I'm going to leave a winner,
even if it takes all night.
- 46. Oh, double dragons.
- 47. Sticks here takes it.
- 48. I'm ahead of schedule.
- 49. I'll be going now.
- 50. Whoa.
- 51. It's bad form to leave
a game of Sea Bones after a big win.
- 52. But very profitable.
- 53. You sure about that?
- 54. Now hold on,
there's no need to be uncivil.
- 55. What's worse form?
- 56. Leaving a game early,
- 57. or beating up someone
who won fair and square?
- 58. Fine.
- 59. But if you walk away now,
we're never letting you play again!
- 60. Oh, yes that's more than fair
- 61. After losing that badly?
I'd be scared too.
- 62. And don't come back!
- 63. Yes! A cod sandwich!
- 64. Is Mom not feeding you enough?
- 65. Oh, no, I went to see the Rat King
- 66. to get information about Ahlberg
and he told me—
- 67. Is this one of your longer stories?
I'm on a schedule.
- 68. I need to leave now
if I'm to find the Draugen before sunset.
- 69. Draugen?
- 70. Wait, what is a Draugen anyway?
- 71. Draugen, plural,
are the spirits of drowned sailors.
- 72. Doomed to sail on a ghost ship,
- 73. forever separated from their loved ones…
and decent fresh produce.
- 74. Those poor souls.
- 75. You think you can find them?
- 76. I truly hope so.
- 77. If you're going to help the Draugen
then I want to come with you.
- 78. Well, now that you mention it…
- 79. I did wonder how I was going to sail
this all by myself.
- 80. This is what you won?
- 81. Did you think they were that angry
because I'd won a hat?
- 82. Now come on.
- 83. - Not him.
- 84. Sorry, but if Twig doesn't come,
then neither do I.
- 85. Fine.
- 86. - But he has to wear this scarf.
- Is it lucky?
- 87. No. But it is adorable.
- 88. Tighten the main sheet. Ease off the vang.
- 89. Pull in the big rope,
loosen the little one.
- 90. Aye, aye, Wood Man!
- 91. Aah! What a lovely day.
- 92. I know.
- 93. Awful, isn't it?
- 94. - What do you mean?
- Draugen like to appear during storms.
- 95. We'll never find them on
an annoyingly perfect day like this.
- 96. I have an idea.
- 97. Hello there!
- 98. Excuse me!
- 99. Excuse you, indeed.
- 100. I was just wondering if we could
bother you for a change in the weather.
- 101. A little drop of rain, perhaps?
- 102. Once, in my youth,
I was very happy to squall on cue.
- 103. But I'm an adult now,
- 104. and long past indulging
such banal requests.
- 105. Okay.
- 106. I understand it's now considered
- 107. to precipitate in front of others.
- 108. Indecent?
- 109. It's completely natural!
- 110. Oh, certainly. But is it proper?
- 111. Ooh!
- 112. - See, it worked!
- 113. We are elemental forces!
- 114. We shouldn't concern ourselves
with questions of propriety.
- 115. Wait, did it work?
- 116. See for yourself.
- 117. Whoa.
- 118. Hello?
- 119. Welcome aboard, swabs!
- 120. Ah!
- 121. Special Draugen grog,
to celebrate your arrival.
- 122. Enjoy!
- 123. Ugh, wait, is this just sea water?
- 124. We've been out here a while.
- 125. Our actual grog ran out some time ago.
- 126. Hold on, is that a deerfox?
- 127. Oh. It's bad luck
to have a deerfox on board a ship.
- 128. Everyone knows that.
- 129. - Told you.
- We're already dead, Nicholas!
- 130. How much worse can our luck get?
- 131. No respect.
- 132. I do like its scarf, though. Adorable.
- 133. - Thank you.
- 134. We have traveled a long way to find you,
and now that we have,
- 135. we can help finally get you home!
- 136. Home?
- 137. We don't want to go home.
- 138. Back on dry land, we'd be simply ghosts.
- 139. Out here we are Draugen!
- 140. Free to roam the sea
to our once beating hearts' content!
- 141. Who's with me?
- 142. - Wait!
- 143. If you're happy out here,
then why did Wood Man want to—
- 144. Um… This really isn't necessary.
- 145. - Caught this one
- 146. trying to steal our coral sextant.
- 147. Wood Man! You said you wanted
to help the Draugen!
- 148. Actually, you said that.
- 149. I said I wanted to find them.
- 150. Wood Man…
- 151. I assume this is the part
where you punish us?
- 152. I admire your boldness.
- 153. We could use more of that around here.
- 154. Well, I'm sorry I respect the rules.
- 155. We're not going to punish you.
- 156. We're going to make you Draugen!
- 157. Uh… How exactly do we become Draugen?
- 158. Same way as the rest of us.
- 159. See? Deerfox.
- 160. - Bad luck.
- 161. Sorry.
We're also quite short on winch oil.
- 162. I drank it all!
- 163. - Take your time.
- I can't believe you.
- 164. I thought you wanted to help,
but you were just being selfish. Again.
- 165. Is it selfish to steal a magic
coral sextant to put in my dining area?
- 166. I'm giving it a nautical theme.
- 167. - Yes! Absolutely!
- 168. Oh.
- 169. No offense, but I'd really like
to avoid being drowned or eaten.
- 170. Isn't there some kind of loophole?
- 171. Sorry, no loopholes!
- 172. - Don't you dare.
- It's just…
- 173. Nicholas!
- 174. Tradition dictates that,
- 175. if a captive sailor can beat the Draugen
in a race back to safe harbor,
- 176. then they shall be freed at once! Oop!
- 177. I'm guessing you're challenging us
to a race then?
- 178. Eh, sure, why not.
- 179. Ready, set…
- 180. go!
- 181. We're doing it! We're pulling ahead!
- 182. They did seem rather confident
for people with holes in their sails.
- 183. That's cheating, isn't it?
- 184. Do I look like
I have a book of ghost rules?
- 185. I do. At home.
- 186. Beautiful leather binding.
- 187. But that's not the point.
- 188. Hmm.
- 189. So, we're running away
and assuming new identities then?
- 190. Excuse me! Hello!
- 191. - Oh, you. Back to disrespect me further?
- I'm sorry for sailing away.
- 192. You were making some excellent points
on the true nature of weather spirits.
- 193. Could you continue?
- 194. - Ey? Really? You want to hear my opinions?
- 195. All of them. Hold nothing back.
- 196. Well!
- 197. Our natural functions should be a
source of pride, not shame.
- 198. Any creature, great or small,
should feel lucky to have…
- 199. There you go,
all the hot air we could want.
- 200. Huh?
- 201. Haul in the sheets! Helm to starboard!
- 202. We're not losing this!
- 203. We won!
- 204. You might want to tell the Draugen that.
- 205. They're not slowing down.
- 206. Run!
- 207. - Ooh! Oh!
- 208. Slow down! Hooligans.
- 209. Why are they still after us? We won!
- 210. Wood Man?
- 211. Do you know anything
that pairs well with pink coral?
- 212. You can't escape us!
- 213. Aah!
- 214. You can have your sextant back!
We don't want it anymore!
- 215. - That's a lie!
- Just stop chasing us!
- 216. Too late for that!
- 217. You're joining our crew,
whether you like it or not.
- 218. This is highly unorthodox.
- 219. Draugen are never supposed
to set foot back in Trolberg.
- 220. Oh, Nicholas, come on,
I'm trying to conjure a mood here.
- 221. Oh.
- 222. Wait. "Back in Trolberg."
- 223. The Draugen
were all residents of Trolberg!
- 224. Fun fact. But does it help us?
- 225. It might. But first…
- 226. They're getting away!
- 227. - Hilda!
- 228. - There you are. Where have you—
- Sorry, Mum, no time to talk!
- 229. - Wood Man! What's going on?
- 230. Explanations aren't really my strong suit.
- 231. Bye, Mum, love you.
I'll be back soon, okay?
- 232. But where are you going?
- 233. What?
- 234. Ugh! Hilda!
- 235. Slow down, please. Who almost hit you?
- 236. A girl! She had blue hair,
a sort of squirrel with horns, and—
- 237. Blue hair. Why am I not surprised.
- 238. They were being chased by a large,
ghostly sailboat. Like that!
- 239. Aha!
- 240. A rune stick.
You're going to raise the dead?
- 241. Don't we have enough dead people around?
- 242. You stay here,
if the Draugen shows up, stall them!
- 243. Okay. I'll do my best!
- 244. Deep in the earth,
your moldering bones.
- 245. For posterity lay,
- 246. but on this night, they stir and moan
- 247. when you come out to play.
- 248. Hello.
- 249. Update! It's not going well.
- 250. Wait. What's happening?
- 251. I'm behind as well.
- 252. You! Who do you think you are,
- 253. waking us up all at once like that!
- 254. Abigail? Is that you?
- 255. Dad?
- 256. Oof! Ow!
- 257. Papi, it's me! It's Nic Nic!
- 258. - What's going on?
- Well, the first thing you told me
- 259. about the Draugen is that
they were separated from their loved ones.
- 260. When I realized
they were all from Trolberg,
- 261. I thought of a way to reunite them.
- 262. You've been gone for three hundred years…
- 263. and you couldn't be bothered to write?
- 264. You know how it is at sea, Dad,
you lose track of time.
- 265. Oh, sure.
- 266. for a few hours, not three centuries! Ugh!
- 267. This always happens, every time you
go out with your sailing buddies!
- 268. I'm… I'm so happy you're home.
- 269. Me too, Dad.
- 270. Keep up, Deputy!
- 271. Huh? What is going on here?
- 272. Aah!
- 273. A bit rude to leave such a mess.
- 274. Almost as rude as me
leaving without saying goodbye.
- 275. Yeah. Wait, what do you mean…
- 276. Don't worry, everybody!
- 277. The ghost ship that was haunting
our streets has been vanquished!
- 278. Gerda, get the camera!
- 279. - We'll need a photoshoot.
- 280. You can't take credit for that!
- 281. - Why not?
- 282. Everyone! You want to know
what Ahlberg is really about?
- 283. He's… Uh… Well…
- 284. Oh, wait a sec.
I forgot to give this to the Rat king!
- 285. - Oh, what is it?
- It's… horrible…
- 286. - Whoops.
- If you're finished,
- 287. I suggest you make yourself scarce
- 288. before I do you
for possession of hazardous materials.
- 289. And now as I was saying…
- 290. Hey!
- 291. Rat King? I know you're down there!
- 292. You got your disgusting sandwich,
now, where's my dirt?
- 293. Here's the thing.
- 294. I dug deep, oh, believe me I did!
- 295. But even my best sources
couldn't root anything out.
- 296. Your man's squeaky clean.
Thanks for the sandwich.
- 297. Looks like this is going to be harder
than I thought.
- 298. Come on, Twig.
