"Pykon" is the sixth episode of The Shannara Chronicles.
On the run from the relentless Reaper, Amberle, Wil and Eretria take shelter in Pykon, a snowy Elvin outpost that houses a grisly secret. Meanwhile, Ander and Slanter make a devastating discovery about the Dagda Mor’s forces.
Amberle has a very provocative dream about Wil. But the dream becomes a nightmare when Dagda Mor appears and jolts her awake. In an attempt to allude the Reaper, Cephalo recommends going through the Pykon fortress. They finally reach the fortress only to find it abandoned. However it seems that the fortress's caretaker, Remo, still remains with his half-elf, half-human daughter, Mag. Remo ends up poisoning the group and takes them hostage. Amberle is taken by Remo and tortured until Wil shows up and rescues her with the help of Mag. Unfortunately during their escape Remo tries to kill them, but Mag steps in and takes the arrow meant for Wil. The group reaches the Wilderun but it seems that the Reaper has finally caught up to them. Wil manages to use the Elfstones to defeat it but the group ends up falling into a chasm in the process.
Prince Ander, Commander Tilton, and the gnome Slanter journey to find the demon army. But the gnome betrays them and leaves the pair in foreign territory. However Slanter returns after having found the demon army. The army is massive and no way does the Elf Kingdom stand a chance against them. Ander frees Slanter to go and warn his people. In Arborlon, the Changeling, acting as the King, tricks Arion into finding the Warlock Lord's sword. Arion uses the sword on Allanon, who dies after two fatal stabbings.
