"Islands Apart" is the fifty-ninth episode of Tangled: The Series. It premiered on January 19, 2020, and is the twelfth episode in the third season.


Rapunzel and her father are reminiscing on past adventures, revealing that King Frederic has finally regained his memories. Suddenly they receive an unexpected visit form Cassandra's pet Owl. He shows up exhausted after a long flight, but has come alone and only has in his possession a piece of fruit that only grows on Terapi Island, leading Rapunzel and Eugene into action in their pursuit to find Cassandra. However, they find the village strangely quiet, but after some searching, they find the Lorbs. They also find themselves reunited with the Captain of the Guards. Surprisingly, he is quite happy and cheerful.

The Captain has had the time of his life on the island. Apparently the Lorbs really like his moustache. The Captain goes into detail about his absence, revealing that after learning of Rapunzel's return to the kingdom and Cassandra's "other arrangements", he found himself on Terapi Island as well as a shocking surprise, a child version of Cassandra. Rapunzel and Eugene suspect something fishy is going on, especially when they see this Cassandra has no shadow. While Rapunzel keeps a close eye on the Captain and "Cassandra", Eugene and Owl try to figure out the magic behind it. Eventually, Rapunzel and Eugene find Alfons, who explains that the Captain has come for a magic wishing fountain on the island. Rapunzel and Eugene realize that the Captain used it to make child Cassandra appear, but also learn that after nine days, the pure wish turns into a full-on nightmare unless the wisher takes back his wish.

Rapunzel and Eugene confront the Captain and finally learn the full story. It turns out after learning what Cassandra had done, the Captain changed his plans and went in search of her where they reunited at the ruins of the maze that Rapunzel and Eugene previously visited. The Captain confronted Cassandra over her actions, leading Cassandra to lash out at her father for hiding the truth about Mother Gothel and refused to have anything else taken from her. He could not recognize his own daughter after their encounter and after finally seeing what she had become, he was too ashamed to return to Corona to face everyone after what she did and basically went into a self-induced exile on Terapi Island. The Captain blames himself and now he wants to make up for it by having a second chance at being a better father to a young Cassandra.

Eventually the sun goes down and the craziness finally happens when various clones of Cassandra appear (including her bird form in "Freebird" and her kid form in "You're Kidding Me!") and start attacking Rapunzel and the others. Rapunzel and Eugene once again attempts to reason with the Captain, only to find him attempting to flee in their hot air balloon with child Cassandra in his arms. All hopes seems lost for the Captain, but he finally comes to his senses after seeing that child Cassandra does not have a shadow. He sets course back to the island to make things right. After a hard goodbye, the Captain undoes his wish; this makes all the Cassandra clones disappear. Rapunzel, Eugene, and the Captain finally set out to return home.

Meanwhile, Cassandra and the Enchanted Girl return to the Great Tree in hopes of finding any usable scrolls for the Moonstone, only to find that they are all destroyed. However, upon a single mention of the Demanitus Scroll by the Enchanted Girl, Cassandra changes their destination to Corona.
