―Blinky to Jim

Wherefore Art Thou, Trollhunter? is the third episode of Part One of Trollhunters.

Official Synopsis

Jim and Toby tour Heartstone Trollmarket, where Jim begins his training and the presence of the first human Trollhunter stirs up bitter resentment.


While visiting Trollmarket for the first time, Jim is not welcomed by the Trolls as their new Trollhunter, and he suffers a humiliating defeat at the hands of Draal the Deadly, son of the last Trollhunter. Now, Jim has to start training if he's to become accepted and take his path amongst the trolls.




  • First appearances of Draal the Deadly, Vendel, Bagdwella, and gnomes.
  • The title is a reference to this line of Romeo and Juliet: Wherefore art thou, Romeo
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Rule Number Three of Trollhunting is "When in doubt, always kick them in the gronk-nuks." "Gronk-nuks" is an obvious euphemism to testicles. Jim even sums it up by saying that the Rule is essentially "Kick them in the nards."
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: When Blinky is explaining the Three Rules of Trollhunting to Jim, the latter can be heard saying "What the hell".
