In the 1st episode of the season DuckTales introduced us to Isabella, an adventurer who besides being an inspiration to Uncle Scrooge, is the founder of the Boy Scouts, and there they found a book with countless adventures that she never did, so this episode returned to show one of those adventures.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Here we find out that Della doesn’t like fish very much and is stressed about being at the door of the kingdom of Mervana, where there are half-ducks and half-fish, and in the encounter with this civilization she is stressed by all that.
If, on the one hand, we have Uncle Scrooge, Donald, Huguinho and Luizinho having fun with the mermaids to learn how to enter this “nirvana”, being that “mervana” is a combination of “mermaid” and “nirvana”, the sacred place of these people.
Except that Zezinho doesn’t believe it all, and with Patilda by his side, they need to make Patricia stay out of it, because they don’t want to make her lose her innocence about that trip. But Mervana’s Harp doesn’t let anyone lie next to her, so Patrícia and Patilda need to learn that the truth is the only way, but sometimes it’s good to understand that an omission can be for a greater good.
So we have the story of King Honestus of Mervana, who didn’t want things difficult, because being on earth everything was more laborious, so he preferred to abstain from earthly things and went to the water, only the more in the water he stayed, the more monstrous its transformation.
The arrival of Scrooge and his nephews, ended up messing with their balance and made the monster rise and become king again, but it was already that time, because now Mervana is controlled by love and energy, and the work is part of the process.
DuckTales brought a first story of Isabella more focused on the family and showing how lying does not lead to anything, but above all, showing that work is honorable and spiritual control is important.
