"Flynnpostor" is sixty-fourth episode of Tangled: The Series. It premiered on February 16, 2020, and is the seventeenth episode in the third season.


After waking up from a nightmare in which he is forced into a fight with Cassandra, the Captain of the Guards realizes that he cannot face off against his daughter. So with a heavy heart, he decides to retire from his position as Captain of the Guards and appoints Eugene his successor. Having seen how much Eugene has changed over the years, the Captain sees him as the perfect man for the job, and so does everyone else. Eugene, however, does not seem so sure about accepting the position and needs time to think about it. However, his time to think it over is interrupted when a thief who has taken his former identity, Flynn Rider, has stolen Rapunzel's tiara. Unable to think of anything else and feeling insanely upset and jealous, Eugene sets out with Rapunzel, Maximus and Pascal to find and capture the new "Flynn Rider", appointing Lance Strongbow as acting Captain until he returns.

Eugene and the others soon find the impostor and quickly capture him thanks to Rapunzel's frying pan and hair. Unbeknown to them, they are secretly being followed by a mysterious figure who turns out to be the Baron. It turns out that he had been through rough times since their last encounter. He has lost everything in his life and is now seeking revenge on Eugene, blaming him for his misfortune, but captures the impostor instead. Eugene, Rapunzel, Maximus and Pascal follow the Baron to his hideout.

Eugene soon finds himself in a chamber where the Baron has shackled the impostor to a stake. The Baron shackles Eugene to the same stake and floods the chamber, intending to drown both the original and the new "Flynn Rider". At that time, the impostor apologizes and admits he was inspired by Eugene's former life and reputation. He wanted that for himself, believing his life as Brock Thunderstrike meant nothing. Eugene unshackles Brock, but Brock leaves Eugene to drown until Pascal comes to unshackle Eugene. Eugene is again captured by the Baron, who is about finish him off. Just then, Brock returns with a change of heart and knocks out the Baron with the frying pan, saving Eugene.

Afterward, Eugene, with persuasion from Rapunzel, decides to allow Brock to go straight, as long as Brock does not let his real name go to waste. Back at Corona Castle, after throwing the Baron in jail, Eugene accepts his new title as the Captain of the Guard.
