Recap / Dragons Riders Of Berk S 1 E 15 Twinsanity

Go To

The Berserkers are coming to sign a treaty, so Hiccup and the riders have to hide their dragons. Only problem is that the twins are having a huge fight, which means their dragon is out of control. Even worse is that instead of Oswald the Agreeable, his son Dagur comes, bent on war.


  • Always Save the Girl: Stoick nearly kills Dagur to save the twins' dragons, saying that he is willing to risk war.

  • The Caligula: Dagur, and it shows when he gives himself the title of "Deranged."
