When we last left King Graham in King’s Quest – Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home
, he was telling the tale of how his son, Alexander, returned from his evil captor Manannan with a personality that the king didn’t envision in his dreams. Not surprisingly, King Graham decided that the best way to bond with his son was through an adventure. To his disgust, Alexander tended to take the easy way out when challenged with puzzles, so Graham attempted to use it as a teaching opportunity.
Thankfully, by the end of the chapter, Alexander had realized his mistakes and decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and solve puzzles the old fashioned way. By the end of the episode, all was well with the King and his family, finally reunited for the rest of their lives. But lives are not forever. We see this as Chapter 4 closes, with King Graham ailing.
