Passages: Darien's Rise, Part 3

“Passages: Darien's Rise, Part 3” is episode #648 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on October 3, 2009.


The Old Judge teaches Anna about the Unseen One, and Kyle saves Darien’s life a second time.


As they prepare to leave, Kyle wonders why all the neighboring countries are at war with Marus. Darien explains it’s the people that form a great country, but the neighboring countries think it is the land. They meet with General Liddell and his other officers and then go to Krawley.

At the battle in Krawley, the Marutians fire their canons into the hills at the Adrians and then pursue them. General Liddell orders Darien to search a specific area. When they get there Kyle feels that strange feeling and dives onto Darien as a bullet barrels past them. The soldiers find the marksman and are shocked that he is a Marutian soldier.

Meanwhile, Anna stays with the Old Judge and they settle into a routine. She spends time learning about the Unseen One. The Old Judge tells her that the Unseen One had him make King Lawrence and then General Darien the king. Anna has dreams where the Old Judge tells her that two were called to be the voice and protector. As Anna does ordinary things sometimes she is transported to other places in her dreams. She sees the king upset that the attempt on Darien’s life failed.

That night, the king has a banquet the night before Darien and Michelle are to marry. He gives wedding gifts to them. When the crowd calls Darien, he takes Michelle to the balcony. Kyle gets another feeling that Darien is in trouble. He rolls a button at Darien...which causes Darien to move just as the king lets an arrow fly from the antique crossbow. The king apologizes, but Darien and Kyle understand that the king wants Darien dead.
