Claire and Present Danger is the twelfth episode of Trollhunters.

Official Synopsis

The Killahead Bridge is complete, but the door to the Darklands still won't open. Jim is forced to tell Claire the truth when she becomes a target.


Jim’s Trollhunting life and his high school life collide when Claire becomes a target for Goblin revenge (thanks to NotEnrique) and when the Killahead Bridge is nearly finished. With no other way to cover up his lies and double life, Jim must tell Claire the truth when they run into the woods and Jim gets injured. 




  • Claire officially finds out Jim’s secret double life. She also learns that her brother is trapped in the Darklands and is replaced with changeling NotEnrique.
  • Gnome Chompsky ventures into the Darklands through the Fetch to find Enrique.
  • Title: The title is the same as an episode of "Full House".
  • The music playing during amulet retrieval scene and subsequent defeat of the goblin horde is "None Shall Live" by Thomas Bergersen (aka Two Steps From Hell).
    • This track was also used during the portal-conjuring scene in the Part Two finale, "In the Hall of the Gumm-Gumm King".
    • Appropriately, the track would later be altered in terms of arrangement, given lyrics by Bergersen, and sung by Merethe Soltvedt as a song named "Children of the Sun."
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: When NotEnrique opens the centerfold of his copy of Shoe Monthly Magazine, Fragwa appears immensely attracted at the image. This is akin to magazines such as Playboy––which famously feature a portrait of pin-up or a nude––to appeal to its target audience.
  • Running Gag: When NotEnrique arrives to inform Team Trollhunter of the goblin horde coming after Claire, Blinky pins him down to the table, enraged that NotEnrique led the goblin horde to their location. Jim tells Blinky to calm down, but once NotEnrique clarifies that the horde believes Claire killed Fragwa, Jim pins him down to the table, also angered. Finally, when NotEnrique reveals that Bular has all of the pieces of Killahead Bridge, Toby pins him down to the table one last time.
