Synopsis
On his quest to complete the Twelve Tasks of Thor, Jon and the Mute Bard enter the Ice King's frozen domain. He must "awaken a rose"? He fights a two-headed bear, sails down a waterfall, fights snowmen - all traps of the frosty Ice King. In a high castle he climbs a "vine" of Rapunzel-like hair and finds a sleeping beauty holding a rose. A kiss breaks the trance. Jon is frozen by the Ice King, but turns a ruby into a burning ray. The Ice King falls. The Fourth Task of Thor is accomplished.

The Silent Knight rescues a man from a gibbet and Sir Edwin's evil clutches. Squire Brian (SK's secret identity) practices knightly skills. Sir Edwin demands he capture the SK. How? But riding the Forest Perilous, Brian meets - the Silent Knight! He fetches him to the castle to be hanged tomorrow. The real SK can't let an innocent man hang, and breaks into the tower. But the impostor was planted by Sir Edwin to draw out the real SK! The SK plunges into the moat, sheds his armor, and Brian climbs out wet - just in time to rescue Lady Celia as she "falls" and gets wet too!
