Brian can't scale the glass mountain, and the circling giant hawk doesn't recognize him, so he dons the garb of the Silent Knight. The giant hawk lifts SK to the castle to battle Thando the sorcerer. Desperate, he hoists Thando in the air - and the magic fades as the magician loses touch with the ground. The castle crumbles, but the giant hawk saves the SK and Lady Celia. Still, she gushes about the SK, and ignores Squire Brian!
