In the previous episode, Nasiens was portrayed as a villain for imprisoning a fairy and attempting to use him for experiments, and for being blamed for the toxic state of Echo Gorge. The episode shows us that Nasiens and Dolores are adopted siblings raised by Doctor Ordo after they were found lost in Echo Gorge. That is the reason why fans are anticipating the release date of the upcoming Four Knights of the Apocalypse Episode 5.
The latest episode of Four Knights of the Apocalypse reveals that Nasiens, who was previously portrayed as a villain, has more nuance and depth to his motivations. Though his methods may seem questionable at first, it turns out he is trying to heal the poisoned land of Echo Gorge, which has been afflicted by blight.
We learn that Nasiens and Dolores are adoptive siblings, both taken in when young by a doctor named Ordo after being found lost in Echo Gorge. Nasiens has been experimenting with various drugs and toxins, which he can withstand thanks to his Venom Mixing magic. He uses this magic to create a healing mist that revives the land.
So, while Nasiens may have seemed like a sinister figure, he has good intentions and has been working to undo the damage done to Echo Gorge. This episode illustrates that motivations and truth are often more complex than initial appearances suggest when it comes to designating heroes and villains.
Recap and Review
The latest Four Knights of the Apocalypse episode unravels various misunderstandings surrounding Nasiens since his grandfather Ordo disappeared from Echo Gorge. Initially, it seemed Nasiens was poisoning Percival while holding him captive for experimentation. However, the “poison” actually gave Percival an energy boost and made his hair wilder.
Outside observers assumed Nasiens was responsible for the chaos in Echo Gorge because they saw him inject a rabbit that then turned into a monster. In truth, Nasiens was experimenting to find a cure for the disease afflicting the land, hoping to help the animals. The fairy he captured had actually attacked him first as well.
We learn that Nasiens has been working tirelessly to find a remedy ever since Ordo vanished, aiming to uphold his grandfather’s ideals and heal the blight across Echo Gorge. Much has been misconstrued about Nasiens’ motives and methods. The episode unravels these misunderstandings to reveal Nasiens’ benevolent goals despite his unorthodox approach.
The once benevolent medicine man, who cared for both people and nature, has been cursed by a vengeful fairy into becoming a poison-spewing beast with four arms.
This transformed Ordo, now a towering monstrosity, attempts to kill his own grandkids. Dolores takes a direct hit from his toxic breath in order to shield Nasiens, nearly getting fried by the intense poison. The responsible fairy sadistically taunts them, ordering Ordo to keep attacking Echo Gorge.
Refusing to let Ordo destroy the land he once protected, Percival succeeds in headbutting the beast and rescuing both Nasiens and Dolores from certain demise.
Spoilers and Expectations
The episode concludes with Percival embracing a distraught Nasiens, promising they will find a way to restore his grandfather. This provides a glimmer of hope after the tragic revelation about Ordo’s fate.
Despite his formidable powers, it’s important to remember Percival is still just a 16-year-old suddenly plunged into an unfamiliar magical world. So far he has killed animals that turned out to be Familiars of two Holy Knights, angering them.
But this situation with Nasiens marks the first time Percival’s actions have had major consequences unrelated to the Holy Knights.
