It's just good to be home, Mom
―Jim to his mother upon returning home

Homecoming is the fifth episode of Part Two of Trollhunters and the thirty-first episode overall.

Official Synopsis

Hope springs from an unlikely source when Gunmar learns that Jim's friends are in the Darklands on a mission to bring him home.


With their lives in danger, the Trollhunters must face against Gunmar and escape the Darklands before their time runs out. Can Draal make it into the Darklands and save his friends in time before any more bad guys can escape and they run out of precious time, trapping them all in the Darklands?




  • Nomura officially reforms in this episode.
  • Gunmar, Dictatious, and a couple of Gumm-Gumms are unintentionally freed.
  • Dictatious is permanently blinded in this episode as a result of Blinky activating his flare during the latter's escape from the former.
  • Jim and Claire share their first real kiss.
    • Their very first one was in the middle of Part One. However, that was just a stage kiss, so this is their first actual kiss.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: After Blinky is freed from his brother, he hits him with a staff saying "GOODBYE DIC-TATIOUS!" with a bit of a pause between "Dic" and "Tatious".
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: When Jim pulls Claire away from the edge of a cliff as she loses her footing, he pulls her towards the ground and slightly drifts his hand over her hip. Claire offendedly exclaims, "Hey! Watch your hands!" Jim realizes what he was doing and quickly holds his hands up while awkwardly saying, "I really pictured that going more smoothly".
