Was anyone else hoping, despite the obvious thread of guest characters, that Red and Angry would have joined the group for a few episodes? Adira is drifting in and out and I think it would be nice to get more female characters for Rapunzel to play off of, rather than Cassandra and the Character of the Day.
I had that exact thought, yeah, and was kind of disappointed when they noped out immediately before the episode ended. I would've really liked for them to be recurring characters: I really like them and their interactions with the others. Plus I like the idea of there being a Red & Angry vs Varian episode at some point, since they're actually really good opposites/counterparts for one another.
Also, how the heck did they end in a deep forest that can only be reached by going past an uncrossable, highly cursed murkwood and another, less cursed wood in which nevertheless resides a pair of Ambiguously Human, bird obsessed wizards? I can totally buy them hanging out in Vardaros for a while, mind.

The spire (spi-er? spyer?) has quite a collection. I picked out Aurora's spinning wheel, the sword in the stone, and the sorcerer's apprentice hat.
Varian finally gets an Evil Costume Switch!
... in a hallucination. It's also noticeably the same outfit Rapunzel had him in when she was painting him in the first season.
But since they actually went through the trouble of making a character design for him in it, it's likely he'll actually appear wearing it for real at some point.
The Black Cauldron is there too.
Does anybody know when Season 2 of this series will be continued?
It apparently stopped after episode 10 (Happiness is), and IMDb doesn't list episodes beyond that, but on the Recap page here there's an 11th episode listed—when will that air?
Or is it at least known how much episodes of Season 2 are still to come? Disney is really leaving us in the dark here...
So far nothing has been announced. "The Brothers Hook" title comes from a photo Mandy Moore posted of her recording session. http://forever-tangledup.tumblr.com/post/166089296277/tangled-fans-mandys-in-the-recording-studio It's production number 218, so we'll probably see some other episodes before it.
It's likely that there will be about the same number of episodes this season as the first season, so we're about halfway through. Season 1 had 21 episodes (not counting the movie), and we're up to 10 in season two.
If the last season is any indication, we should be having the midseason Wham Episode sometime soon.

O that's interesting! Well, I hope it gets at least as much episodes as Season 1.
The movie actually does count. "Before Ever After", "Queen for a Day", and "Secret of the Sundrop" were all produced as two episodes, in terms of production code, for a total of 25. Season 2 will also have 25 produced episodes, with "Beyond the Corona Walls" counting as two.
It's also noticeably the same outfit Rapunzel had him in when she was painting him in the first season. But since they actually went through the trouble of making a character design for him in it, it's likely he'll actually appear wearing it for real at some point.
That's not a new outfit. That's actually the black jacket he was wearing when he was first introduced, and had the creepy metal mask on. He wore both the jacket and mask again when he kidnapped the Queen in the Season 1 finale. And yeah, he'll likely wear it again when he returns.

Well according to Sonnenburg's Twitter, Season 3 is not the last season this series will have. (I think)
Some of the Tangled staff and cast are itching for a spin-off, and who could blame'em? My money and guts are on the one character who obviously deserves it most....Varian. Would they put it on Disney Channel or the new streaming service?
I don’t see Varian carrying a spin-off simply because everything about him is so tied up in the plot of this show that I couldn’t see him doing much outside of Rapunzel.
Anywho, the animation for Season 2 is apparently wrapped now. Hopefully that means we’ll get episodes soon.
And it's back! Haven't watched it yet, but "Max and Eugene in Peril on the High Seas" is on now.
With no fanfare, no less. I was expecting a big "upcoming on Disney channel" trailer with Tangled, Ducktales and BG 6 clips. But nah.
Okay, actual reaction.
Cool episode. Nice Errol Flynn-style adventure. Cool battle at the end with the heroes vs every villain they've faced in the series up to this point - except, conspicuously, Varian - very fun.

Well, that was certainly a hell of an episode. Great songs, action packed, yet another midseason special with a tragic twist befalling the characters' relationships, etc.
It took me a while to get a handle on Hector's character. The way he's designed and behaves gave me the impression that he had some kind of dark ulterior motive, but it appears he genuinely is a Well-Intentioned Extremist / Knight Templar.
Also, I like how the episodes preceding this slowly built up the fact that Rapunzel's is getting more reckless and, at times, dangerously headstrong.

Yeah this was cool episode
When I first saw thumbnails of clips of this episode, I thought it was creepypasta.
Finally got caught up. Glad to see Eden Espinosa (Cassandra) finally get to sing. She's another Broadway singer who was in Wicked.
What's the best way to watch the series? I've always meant to sit down and watch it and oh boy does it look like its actually doing some cool things.
Today's two episodes were pretty neat.
"Brother's Hook" screams Breakther Episode louder than it's big musical number. Very much a "look, we know last week was kind of a rollercoaster, so here's something light and fun with a dance-off and an aesop and so on!"
Not complaining, mind. Though is it just me or is that not Brad Garrett playing Hook Hand? Why not? I doubt it's an issue of not being able to procure him for a show vs a movie, since he's actually been in this series before.
I really liked "Rapunzel: Day One." It felt a lot like a Spiritual Sequel to "Free Bird," but with Cassandra learning the lesson at Rapunzel's comical expense rather than vice versa (though those who are not fans of Cassandra being an asshole might not enjoy this one so much). That said, just like Free Bird, this feels like another premise that could have used a smidge more Eugene.
It seems like this show hasn't been getting much attention lately. Which is understandable. The six month break probably caused some to lose interest. And it was never really popular. But the season finale just aired. All in all, I thought it was good. I'm going to say what the biggest twists were in the episode, so spoilers ahead.
Biggest twists: We meet Eugene's father, who, at least initially, is an antagonist. And the biggest one: Cassandra turns evil and betrays Rapunzel.
I'll give the writers credit for actually having the balls to go through with this. A lot of other shows (particularly with this target demographic) wouldn't have done it. They also tried to fool the audience by making it seem like Eugene would be the one in the prophecy to turn. They set up the whole thing with his father, and even gave him a song, similar to what Varian had. At the end Eugene comes to his senses, and it seems resolved. But then at the last second Cassandra turns against them, and grabs the moonstone. Rapunzel (and Eugene) was shocked into speechlessness. They had obviously considered that Cassandra might betray them, but after the false alarm with Eugene they probably figured it wasn't an issue anymore. They also probably figured that if Cassandra did go against them then it would be in a less supervillain-ish way. "I told you Rapunzel, you should be careful who you trust."
Anyway, good episode. Everyone was given something to do, good action. Might have to watch it again at some point though, since I might have missed some things.
This show has its ups and downs in quality, but when its good, it can be one of the best animated shows on right now.
You know I should catch up with this series, because Tangled really has Aladdin the animated series quality writing to it.
I'm gonna predict that the next season will have a Big Bad trio consisting of Cass, Varian and the evil wizard that poisoned the giant tree and tried to whiteout Corona.
