The Owl House Episode 14 Review
Folks, I have no idea why, but for some reason, we got two episodes of The Owl House. But I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, so let’s get this show on the road! In our first episode from last night, King deals with a small problem he causes at the carnival.
King’s Small Problem with Honesty
From the moment we’ve met him, King’s touted himself as the fearsome “King of Demons.” I’m still not sold on that part, but who cares? He’s funny and adorable and one of Luz’s best friends. Yet, he also has a hard time expressing his emotions that make him seem weak and insecure. It’s honestly adorable until it ends up blowing up in his face.
In this episode, Luz has a day off from school due to a pixie infestation, so the Owl House residents head to a carnival for some fun. King wants to spend it with Luz, only to get jealous when she spends it with Gus and Willow. So he “wisely” decides to use a magic potion from a random fortune-teller that manages to shrink them all down to the size of flies.
This is just like “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.”
Revenge Is Best Served Tiny
In a twist that everyone watching saw coming, the guy who sold King that potion is that Tibbles guy whose stand got squashed by Hooty back in episode 6. So he captures the heroes and wants to feed them to his “Tent of Tiny Terrors.” Fortunately, King chooses to step up at this moment and save the day and get some payback on that Tibbles guy.
That’s about it for this episode. I will be honest, people: this episode did not capture my interest that well. We just had a Luz-King centered episode a few weeks ago, after all. And in the grand scheme of things, it does little to advance the plot of the show. However, what I did like was it showing how much King values Luz as a friend. He did all of this in the first place because he felt jealous of how Luz had less time for him. At the start of the episode, he waited at the door like a dog for Luz to come home; it was adorable!
So, this was not my favorite episode of the show, but you’re never going to love every episode of a show. Case in point, “The Great Divide” from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
I Give “Really Small Problems” A 2.8/5
