Otherwise we just evolved into elves and demons and magic became real after the apocalypse? Interactions should not primarily be for personal benefit. They are moving really fast between scenes and not giving enough time to explain one thought out digest it before the next. She flees for possibly killing her boyfriend and fleeing because of the visions that are flashing into her life that she doesn’t understand. That said, I think the OP’s post summarises my feelings: I suspect those who know nothing about Shannara will enjoy the series as a TV fantasy series.

But they do spend a heck of a lot of time looking good and thinking about the week’s drama. Then after the apocalypse, magic faded back into the world along with the elves. I re-read it over the course of several months the joys of having a toddler and then a newborn as well Season 3 is supposed to swing back towards being more sci fi.

I had a hard time getting into any of Terry’s latest works so I actually haven’t even read everything in the Shannara universe despite it once being my favorite series.

In the book, it wasn’t that the Ellcrys wanting her to carry the seed that made her run away. I just liked how sshannara more aggressive he was in season 1 and didn’t give a shit about the bad guys.
