Plot[]

Picking up where the previous episode left off, Bean, Elfo and Luci have been rescued from being burned at the stakes by Queen Dagmar, but now find themselves in the underground city of a race of creatures called the Trøgs. Bean is not happy to see Dagmar, but is restrained by the Trøgs when she tries to attack her mom. Dagmar orders some Trøgs to seal off the hole through which Bean and friends where rescued. Dagmar assures Bean she can leave anytime she wants, but reminds her that the people of Dreamland still want her dead. When Bean and friends make an attempt to escape, they notice the Trøg tunnels are a maze that only Dagmar and the Trøgs know their way around in.

Back on the surface, Odval congratulates Derek for his execution of Bean. Derek is upset however and wants to speak to Zøg. Zøg meanwhile has recovered enough to get out of bed, and spots Derek wearing his crown and being in the company of Odval and the Arch-Druidess. He fears something is up, and is proven right when he overhears the Arch-Druidess and Odval tell Sir Pendergast that they plan to murder him. When they come into his room, Zøg pretends he is dying so they will leave him alone. Afer some debating, Odval convinces the Arch-Druidess to wait for Zøg to succumb to his own injuries. She agrees, but orders Pendergast to make sure Zøg never leaves the room.

In Trøgtown, Bean, Elfo and Luci attend the Trøg's midnight supper. Dagmar holds a speech in which she claims she just wants to be reunited with Bean, but Bean remains suspicious. Luci meanwhile is ordered to dine on table scraps since the Trøgs hate demons, and Elfo becomes the subject of affection from a female Trøg named Trixy, who quickly impresses him with a dish of anchovies in vinegar and mustard. Bean excuses herself from diner, claiming she is tired, so Dagmar has Yugo bring her to the cave inn to sleep. The room he brings her to turns out to be an exact replica of Bean's old childhood bedroom. Bean can't get to sleep, and when she leaves her room, she spots Dagmar heading into the tunnels. Bean tries to follow her, but soon loses track.

In the castle, as Zøg continues to pretend he's dying, Pendergast begins to recall how much Zøg means to him. In Dreamland's Cathedral, Derek is given his first edicts to tell to his subjects as their new king. The edicts contain a lot of restrictive rules Odval and the Arch-Druidess hope to implement to make Dreamland a theocracy where all fun is eradicated. In Trøgtown, Trixy gives Bean, Elfo and Luci a tour through the minin pit, treasure cave and fungus forest, where they get high on spores. The tour ends in the Crystal Cavern, which Bean finds familiar. Dagmar arrives and tells Bean she has been here before. She orders Elfo and Luci to leaf so she and Bean can talk some more. Bean slowly begins to warm up to Dagmar. Later, when Luci reminds Bean how Dagmar tried to poison Zøg, Dagmar justifies her actions by stating Emperor Cloyd and Becky the Enchantress claimed Zøg was evil. Since Bean is currently not even sure if Zøg is alive after what happened, Dagmar shows her a map of the secret Trøgtunnels in Dreamland Castle, and suggests Elfo can use them to check on Zøg.

In the castle, Zøg, having learned that Bean is dead, reveals to Pendergast that he has recovered, but has no reason to live anymore. He wants Pendergast to kill him. Then Elfo comes in through the secret tunnel and reveals Bean is alive, but he gets pulled back into the tunnel with the rope around his waist before he can say more. with his will to live now restored, Zøg plans to have Pendergast smuggle him out of the castle inside a coffin so they can make plans to overthrow Odval and the Arch-Druidess. Meanwhile, Prince Merkimer visits Derek in his room and expresses his concerns about the new edicts Derek put into place. He reminds Derek that as King he can make and revoke edicts as he sees fit. Derek takes the words to heart and during another gathering in the cathedral, he goes off script and begins to implement his own edicts rather than Odvals, forcing the Arch-Druidess and Odval to silence him by dragging him out of the Cathedral.

In Trøgtown, Bean finds a room of amphora's filled with Sacred Goo. Then she overhears the Trøgs order Yugo to bring Dagmar her midnight snack. When Bean follows him to Dagmar's room, she discovers to her shock that Dagmar is eating Yugo's brain. In the castle, Zøg and Pendergast put their escape plan into motion. Pendergast locks Zøg in the coffin, which is loaded onto a wagon and driven out of town, but during the trip Zøg spots Pendergast's severed head on a stake. It turns out the Arch-Druidess discovered the plan, had Pendergast killed, and now she is driving the wagon. She brings the coffin to the Pauper's graveyard, where she has Zøg burried alive in an unmarked grave.
