A Threesome in The Shannara Chronicles?

The chemistry between Wil and Eretria in the first episode of Shannara was so promising and rewarding that it consumed all my interest in the series. Well, until Wil met Amberle (naked under a waterfall, I might add), or Amberle met Eretria.

It happened really fast and wasn’t intended to look the way a lot of fans saw it. Including me… The actual story revolves around a typical love triangle: two girls and one guy. But just as most of the fans I kept wondering: who is actually involved with whom? Wil with Eretria? Wil with Amberle? Eretria and Amberle? Or is it all three of them setting a new standard for polyamory on TV…

The Origins of the Underdeveloped Teen Drama

Confused hormonal extremely good looking teenagers are bound together by the mandatory quest to save the world from demons. Just like my favorite fantasy TV shows (Xena: Warrior Princess, Legend of the Seeker, Spartacus: Blood and Sand) The Shannara Chronicles is based on a very generic sounding book series and filmed in my favorite locations in New Zealand. Manu Bennett from both Xena and Spartacus is also one of the main characters in this coming of age drama set in the post-apocalyptic world.

Wil and Eretria

I composed a short track and used it to make two very different yet similar videos. First one is about Wil and Eretria. That incredible chemistry that was explored at the beginning of the series.

Amberle and Eretria

The second video is an alternate universe I created because The Shannara Chronicles teased me too much by showing what could happen between Amberle and Eretria, but never going there. So I went. Editing can be so helpful and rewarding sometimes…

Anyway, what I really focused on was this:

Why should I even choose between #teamAmberleWil or #teamWilEretria or #teamPricessRover (Amberle and Eretria)? I simply want it all…

P.S. Happy Valentine’s!
