How Disenchantment Pulls Off the Perfect Retcon

Published on November 24, 2021



SPOILERS AHEAD! Disenchantment Part 3 Episode 6 ‘Last Splash’ sees the culmination of a long-foreshadowed project in which Bean’s personality and love-life from the show’s earlier episodes is transformed. This video looks at the way this is done, from the show’s pivot away from the Bean – Elfo will-they-won’t-they relationship and the princess’ earlier amorous antics in Dreamland, and extrapolates the 4 main reasons that this retcon works.

Disenchantment is Matt Groening’s latest adult cartoon – set in and around the magical Kingdom of Dreamland, ruled by King Zog, the show follows Princess Bean, Elfo, and the demon Luci. The trio adventure around the land – from Dankmire to Steamland, Cremorrah to Maru. ‘Last Splash’ sees the mermaid Mora join Bean and Elfo as they escape Alva Gunderson in Steamland, after Bean had chased the Arch-Druidess there to track down the weapon used in an assassination attempt on Zog.
