"Tomblain and Rhiannon" is the ninety-sixth numbered episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on June 28, 2021.

Description

Prince Tomblain is torn between his love for the acorn Alice P. Corn and Rhiannon the milk maid.

Summary

A different static transmission comes in calling out for Tricia or Craig. The Mysterious Man is trapped in Eataly and made a transmission device out of a gnocchi press and a $3000 lemon zester. For now, he is hiding in a faux rustic wine barrel.

In Foon, Arnie introduces the new and improved Badger Boy, a new nickname given to Chunt in the previous episode. He revels in their new gang, Fast Horses, and celebrates it with the matching tattoos, which Arnie spaced out about getting. Usidore uses the gang to reaffirm their mission to help Tomblain rise to his throne, but after being stabbed so many times by him, Arnie wants to withdraw his support. Usidore and Badger Boy coax Arnie to support Tom again, saying it will be funny again when he gets stabbed again, which Arnie gives him another chance. Badger Boy also says that they will interrupt Usidore’s name again, but the trial interruptions ends with Arnie shitting himself.

Tom rushes towards the group in an exacerbated huff. He asks Badger Boy to hold his mead, Usidore to hold a bag, and Arnie to hold a dagger in his chest. He is ready to talk to Rhiannon the Milk Maid, his love of his life that he left after abandoning the throne for the first time, again. However, he had been a nut up his butt, Alice P. Corn, who is the other love of his life. Tom requests from the guys that they distract Alice while he talks to Rhiannon.

When Tom leaves, Usidore opens the back to speak with Alice. She already knows that Tom is off searching for Rhiannon, but also knows full well that he will not be able to find her. The group assumes that Alice murdered her, but she reveals that she, Alice P. Corn, is also Rhiannon. After Tom left when they could not be together, Rhiannon followed him. To approach Tom in a more natural way, away from their statuses, she had found a “wizard” that used his “magit” to turn her into an acorn. Despite the slapdash magic, the two were united as acorn and A Series of Bats. However, the love triangle that Tom believes he is in is a lie and Rhiannon feels the guilt of living a double life with the love of her life.

Distraught, Tom returns, once again out of breath, unsure of where Rhiannon could be, He did find Stuart, the cow milker, which is the sexiest job. Badger Boy hints that Rhiannon is in the bag, which Tom misunderstands as Rhiannon being in Bagsville. Usidore suggests that Tom dresses up for her, which he goes off. While Tom is away, Usidore goes off to put a sleeping spell on Stuart and encase him in glass, and Arnie and Badger Boy talk to Rhiannon.

The comradery of the Girl Talk prompts the group (except for Arnie) to get tattoos. Arnie asks if Rhiannon is trapped as an Acorn, but she says “Sometimes I feel Like an Acorn, Sometimes I Don’t”, changing her from an acorn to her true self. When Tom comes back, Rhiannon hides behind Usidore and he tells Tom that Alice has now decided to be a tree on her own and Rhiannon was last seen at the Royal Cafeteria. Tom leaves them again to go find Rhiannon, which prompts them to think that Tom might be an idiot. The crew established that she is not a good actor, so vocally, Tom should know the difference.

During Rhiannon’s display of vocal range, Krefnen comes by when Rhiannon put on her Stuart voice. She tries to shoo him off, but he is so drawn to Stuart (as the cow milker). When he finally leaves, he also gives exacerbated breaths, providing proof that Tom may already know about Rhiannon. O’Krefnen also comes by and Rhiannon asks him to sign a book for her. Tom then ends the scene, revealing himself, moving the group, but his act does not fool Rhiannon. Tom apologizes to her for deceiving her with his many roles, while Rhiannon reveals that she, too, has been deceiving him being both Rhiannon and Alice. Tom takes the news well, but is also stuck on the idea that Rhianoon was also Stuart, as he was fiercely attracted to him.

Tom asks Rhiannon to be by his side as queen now that he can ascend the throne and change the laws to be with her, which she accepts. The two leave Arnie, Badger Boy, and Usidore, but not before Tom acts as more people.
