It seems to me there's some weird editing in the scene where Green Hordriss asks Nicola for help. He says quite loudly "Find me some relief, and bring it speedily!", and then the next line in close-up seems like it was filmed later, as the sound quality is totally different as he half-whispers "I have enough power for a short journey of calling. My calling name is Malefact." It then cuts really abruptly to him talking at full volume again, "You must call clearly three times." At first I thought perhaps he'd forgotten to tell them his calling name and they'd inserted it afterwards, but I'm not sure, as one of the advisors does mutter "Have we got to shout Malefact three times or something?" as Nicola is leaving the room. I suppose she might already have been familiar with his calling name from watching previous series?

Was it the same advisor who wanted to summon Hordriss to the hidden spyglass room for no apparent reason? If so, I don't think she had grasped why he gave them his contact details in the first place!

It doesn't look like the same actor to me. Also, Rothberry doesn't name the ogre, whereas Julius Scaramonger specified "young Grimwold" in Series 6. This may simply have been an ogre joke rather than a Knightmare in-joke.

Agreed. At various points in this episode, Treguard deserves to be credited as the fourth advisor! In my opinion, a team on Level 2 should not be getting as much guidance as he gives them. Having said that, the team was in losing status as soon as Nicola left the Level 2 clue table, so in fact, Treguard's help ensured that they carried on until their mistake caught up with them. And yet not all this series' teams were aided so generously by Treguard. If Team 5 had had as many hints about using the Darkness Powder as this team did about using the "rod thingy", the outcome could have been very different.

You're overlooking Hordriss' pact with Chris at the end of Series 3, and with dungeoneers throughout Series 4 and 5. It was these bargains that added such neutrality and intrigue to his character.

It would have been a more useful find before the fireball encounters!
