Pykon continues the story in the first season when King Eventine gets killed by the Changeling after Will, Amberle, Eretria, and Allanon leave the elven kingdom to embark on a quest and this time, it does get a little bit intense and action packed when they get attacked in Pykon by the Reaper. This episode is decent enough, but it's not exactly in the same league as earlier episodes and is more in the same league as episode 2, which had some improvements, but still had the standard clichés and only the dialog in here is somewhat stilted. Also, the pacing felt quite uneven in some areas particularly in the beginning. That being said, there are still some good things about the episode.
I love how it got more intense and action packed and the characters, the best being Allanon, have been getting interesting so far with Will and Amberle getting even better than before. Even the story is getting a bit interesting by expanding on the world that was established in the previous episodes. The CGI/visuals are still beautiful and the music score, while not a classic, is still atmospheric and the acting, while not oscar-worthy, is still decent enough with the best coming from Manu Bennett and John Rhys Davies, who plays the Changeling disguised as the King Eventine.
So, overall, a decent, albeit somewhat flawed episode that has some merits.
