With the second season of The Shannara Chronicles still months away, we’re left with only 10 episodes to keep us satisfied over this too-long hiatus. Since the show is just starting out, it’s natural to have a lot of aspects left to be addressed and explored. Yes, there’s a lot of great storylines going on throughout the first season, but if I’m being honest, the thing I care most about is the relationship between Amberle and Eretria, also known to fans as “Princess Rover.”
The show starts off with what seems like a typical young adult love triangle. We have Wil at the top and Amberle and Eretria at the other two points. Two very different girls both in love with the same guy right? Well actually… not in the slightest. To both my surprise and excitement, Shannara manages to put quite a spin on things when Amberle and Eretria’s relationship is developed just as much (maybe even more) as their individual relationships with Wil. And to make things even more interesting, Eretria is revealed as a bisexual character giving us hope that Princess Rover could some day set sail!
In honor of a season 2 eventually coming our way (yay!), here’s 5 moments that had us shipping Princess Rover like there’s no tomorrow.
1. Eretria saves Amberle from Cephalo.
2. That time in the hot tub when Eretria reveals “it’s not just guys.”
Bonus: Is it just me or was Amberle totally digging that for a sec?
3. Eretria finally admits that she cares about Amberle (and I finally admit that there’s no turning back).
4. Eretria patches up Amberle’s wounds. Isn’t that how all epic relationships start?
5. The hug that also features Wil. I am completely down with this giant love fest!
With the season finale leaving both Amberle and Eretria’s fate under scrutiny, I think it’s safe to say that anything could happen in the upcoming season. But what do you guys think? Is Princess Rover a real possibility or is it all just wishful thinking? Let us know in the comments section down below!
The Shannara Chronicles Season 2 is set to premiere in 2017 on MTV
