On The Snow Spider Season 1 Episode 2 – “The Silver Ship”, Gwyn is stunned by the visions he sees in Arianwen’s webs. Not once but twice, a pale girl resembling his sister appears in the web, then vanishes again. Gwyn soon sees the truth in his grandmother’s warning: being a magician really can be a lonely business, especially when your best friend refuses to believe you.
Unlike his younger sister Nia who is more sympathetic, Alun isn’t at all convinced by Gwyn’s tales of magic. To make matters worse, Arianwen is distracting Gwyn from his chores at home. With his friend upset and his parents angry, Gwyn fears his magic might be too big a burden to bear.
He takes his anger out on the Snow Spider. But she’s also all he’s got. Transporting him out of Pendewi towards the sea, Arianwen encourages Gwyn to throw his second gift – the seaweed – to the wind. In its wake, an enormous silver ship whooshes past Gwyn. As he lies asleep on the ground, a figure looms over him: the girl from Arianwen’s web. You can watch the full episode below.
