Merlin to Jim

Unbecoming is the eleventh episode of Part Two of Trollhunters and the thirty-seventh episode overall.

Official Synopsis

Facing serious accusations from the Tribunal, Jim gets the chance to see what his life would be like if he'd never found the amulet.


Facing serious accusations from the Tribunal for his actions, Jim is sent back in time by Unkar for a chance to see what his life would have been like if he had never found the amulet, and Draal is the Trollhunter. At first, Jim loves his new peaceful life, but it takes a turn for the worse. Can Jim get his life back and face up to his mistakes? Or will the world be doomed?




  • This marks Merlin's first appearance in the series (albeit as a spirit in the amulet).
  • Bular returns briefly in this episode.
  • It is revealed that if Draal became the Trollhunter, he would’ve failed in stopping Bular and been turned to stone.
  • This episode is a parody of It's a Wonderful Life, which has been parodied in various films and television shows for years.
