"Return of the Trollhunter" is the fourteenth episode of Part One of Trollhunters


Now that Claire knows about Trollmarket, Jim is conflicted on whether or not he should tell his mum, Barbara, about the Trollmarket as well, especially since he wouldn't tell her what happened in the last episode. When Claire enters the secret realm for the first time, she easily adapts and befriends Vendel and Draal. While Claire is learning more about Trollmarket, Jim receives a ghostly summons from the other Trollhunters and decides to form his very own team of Trollhunters. 

Meanwhile, Strickler, Otto Scaarbach, and a goblin go to an ancient temple in a jungle and awaken an ancient evil known as Angor Rot, who is bent on destroying the Trollhunter.
