A Screaming Death drill causes Astrid and Snotlout to argue again over who goes to the Great Hall and the Armoury. Snotlout challenges Astrid to a race to the Great Hall to determine who defends it. This still leads to a fight in the Great Hall, which is quickly wrecked. Stoick is furious that a drill created such havoc, and demands Hiccup to sort out the problem between Astrid and Snotlout. However, the problem doesn't just lie between the two of them, it also lies between their dragons, which could be a much harder task.
A very enjoyable episode, where Astrid and Snotlout finally get along and understand each other's dragons. However, I'm unsure about the Dragon Root story and the dialogue seems quite forced at times in this one. The Astrid and Snotlout story makes up for that, though, and causes it to be quite an enjoyable episode. Although, I'm not quite sure when Astrid didn't get along with Snotlout, as I always believed it to be a one way thing. She just found his flirting annoying. But I'm glad Astrid has been given a flaw, as I've always believed her to be one of those flawless characters.
The Astrid and Snotlout storyline was enjoyable, the introduction to Dragon Root was quite interesting, and Hiccup becoming more of a leader is exciting, but the forced dialogue and unanswered Meatlug immunity idea has brought this episode down from an eight to a seven for me.
